Doctor Who fans lined up a day in advance for Sunday’s Doctor Who 50th Anniversary panel at San Diego Comic-Con to ensure their entry into the event. Little did know that series star Matt Smith, the Eleventh Doctor, was roaming the convention floor disguised in a Bart Simpson mask.
Watch the video here below, courtesy of BBC America, of the masked Smith walking the Con floor unrecognized.
You’ll see in the video that he tries to talk to other convention goers, but they have no interest in befriending him. He goes out of his way to find obvious Doctor Who fans. If they only knew!
Over the years, it’s been common for celebrities to walk the floor in disguise so they can get the Con experience too. During Fox’s surprise X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Panel panel on Saturday, X-Men star Hugh Jackman said he walked the floor in his full Wolverine custom and the only attention he received was negative comments about his cosplay.
