This Is What Happened When The "Doctor Who" People Visited Buckingham Palace

Sophie, Countess of Wessex, held a special reception to celebrate the programme. Assuming my invite was lost in the post, guys.

If the Doctor Who 50th anniversary 50th anniversary celebrations weren't grand enough, yesterday there was a reception held at Buckingham Palace for it.

The Eleventh Doctor's flesh avatar was there as well, or perhaps a shape-shifting Zygon.

Jenna Coleman had her best "meeting-the-royals" face on.

She will have had a lot of practise, playing opposite Queen Elizabeth I in The Day Of The Doctor.

And a rollicking great time was had by all.

Apart from possibly Hurt, who looks a bit bored here.

Actually he looks a bit happier here.

Sophie has the look of Madame du Pompadour to her, don't you think?
