Doctor Who reaches TwitterBookmark and Share

Friday, 20 May 2011 - Reported by Chuck Foster
Doctor Who is now officially represented on the the popular social communication service Twitter. The new feed, DoctorWho_BBC, was announced by the series brand manager, Edward Russell, and at present tweets link to new articles on the BBC's Doctor Who site.

Doctor Who already has an official presence on the popular social networking site Facebook, where sister show Torchwood is also represented - the new series, Miracle Day, also has an official Twitter feed. The official profiles come after several bogus feeds and pages created over the past few months suggested that they were BBC-managed.

A variety of cast and crew are also present on Twitter, not least of which includes Doctor Who's show-runner Steven Moffat, the writer and director of last week's episodes, Neil Gaiman and Richard Clark, and the writer of this coming Saturday's The Rebel Flesh, Matthew Graham. Links to other cast and crew can be found via our own Twitter lists.

Update: The Doctor Who site has itself re-iterated the problems with 'fake' accounts, and noted that none of the principal stars of the show have a social networking presence; however, though this is true for Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill does have a Twitter identity.
