FWIW, I hit the "i" icon to read the description/info. 'About PODSHOCK' (the entire podcast series itself and not about a specific episode) from within my iTunes Player app. and noticed in the last sentence that Colin Baker is missing from all the other actors who portrayed The Doctor.
You're probably already aware of this news, but in case not...
Over the past few months we have been discussing having some sort of special anniversary event to mark the occasion this year. You may remember last year we held an event in Manhattan for our 24th anniversary in which we paired up with a monthly DWNY meet up and brought the lovely Daphne Ashbrook (Dr. Grace Holloway from the 1996 Doctor Who movie) to the event. See Happy Anniversary to Us… for further details.
We would like to something special for our 25th as well. It would be an event in the NY area, perhaps on Long Island as that is where it all began, yet still be accessible to our friends in NYC. Maybe a dinner event? Would you be interested in attending?
It was a quarter of century ago today, as hard as it is for me believe, is when the Gallifreyan Embassy began. Unbeknownst at the time, it was the day after the Discovery Channel was launched. It was also the day after the launch of the space shuttle Discovery (STS-51-G) which marked the first Arab and Muslim in space (payload specialist Sultan bin Salman bin Adulaziz Al Saud). Yes, it was 1985. Ronald Reagan was in the White House, Commodore launches the Amiga personal computer while NeXT is founded by Steve Jobs after leaving Apple Computer.
Just two weeks before we went Back to the Future in the theaters, the Gallifreyan Embassy of Long Island officially began.
I have recently found my way back to Doctor Who. As a kid, both me and my dad use to watch Tom Baker and Peter Davison's Doctor on PBS in the States. Over the past year and a half I have found my way to the new series, but have also become reacquainted with the classic series from my youth.
Does anyone have any suggestions of classic Dr. Who that is either a must own or a must see?

By the way I did see the Paul McGann movie in 8 ten-minute installments on youtube, since there is a lot of references to that movie on the Podshock Podcast.
