It is my hope you all are well. As some of you may know over on my own blog "Comfy Chair" I started sometime ago an archive of a Doctor Who fanzine "Morbius." I have a huge interest in fanzines as a whole but especially those regarding Doctor Who & Tolkien, even more specific fanzines from groups in the New York area. The Doctor Who fanzine "Morbius" is not entirely from the NY area but it is where I got my start in collecting Doctor Who fanzines.
My post today is concerning the fanzine of the Gallifreyan Embassy "Ambassadors of Life," which ran until the mid-1990s if I am not mistaken. I have a few issues courtesy of Louis and Ken but wish to expand my personal archive. Ideally I would like to create a digital archive for my own collection and am not set to make it public unless I gain specific permission from Louis.
On July 29th Gallifreyan Embassy Contributor Troy Baker posted a list of the Doctor Who specials airing this month This Saturday, August 11th, 2012 9/8c the second of these specials air on BBC America -- The Women of Doctor Who
Here is the description from the BBC America site:
Behind every great time lord there’s a great woman. Whether they’re busting Daleks or the Doctor’s ego, the women of ‘Doctor Who’ prove that you don’t need testosterone to save the universe.
Ok very cool and we know that in the post 2005 series we have Valkyrie type female companions in Rose, Martha, Donna & Amy.
First just a quick note before my news I wish to thank Louis Trapani for allowing my wife (Jessica Burke) and I (Anthony Burdge) to blog here for him and the Gallifreyan Embassy.
