If you're BBC America, and you want a proper venue to impress a gathering of TV critics, what better spot than the rooftop pool of Hollywood's posh London Club, just off the Sunset Strip?

Not a lot of recognizable stars turned up Friday night, since most of the network's stuff is imported and original, but Idris Elba, formerly of The Wire, currently Emmy-nominated for his stunning work in the psych-mystery cop-shop thriller Luther (second installment coming Oct. 5), was chatting. He's big, handsome, and smart.

A couple of reporters went up to Matt Smith, who plays the title role in the long-running cult fave Dr. Who. (He's No. 11, for those keeping score.) Except it wasn't Smith, but a look-alike. It wasn't clear if the guy had been invited specifically to take pressure off the real star, and he wasn't explaining. Smith himself dined on the superb prime rib (fancy tacos also available, all supposedly whipped up under the direction of wild-man Brit chef Gordon Ramsay), but was declining interviews. "Let's just have a conversation," he told one reporter.
