Firstly our first two books, The Mythological Dimensions of Doctor Who and the award winning The Mythological Dimensions of Neil Gaiman have been re-published under the Myth Ink Books publishing imprint. Our publisher Kitsune Books closed on 12/31/12 and both are now again available via Amazon and other online booksellers, plus for your Kindle devices as well.

The very special guest of honor at L.I. Who will connect the convention with the beginning of Doctor Who history fifty years ago. It is the legendary director of the first episode "An Unearthly Child" and the missing historical classic "Marco Polo". 

He is the subject of the upcoming BBC America co-production "An Adventure in Space and Time" written by Mark Gatiss. The drama chronicles the early days of making Doctor Who. 

In his long career, Waris has worked with Hollywood legends like Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, and Bette Davis. He is a renowned storyteller and he makes a rare convention appearance at L.I. Who to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.

New Doctor Who: Podshock Coming… An Update on the Storm Recovery

After Hurricane Sandy at Barnum Island, NY

Here's an update on the ongoing storm recovery:

I have a computer workstation setup now for me to record and edit while my place is being gutted out and made inhabitable again. I haven't tested everything out yet, but I suspect I should be able get work done. The biggest roadblock now is carving out the time that is required. Demolition of my place won't start until I clear everything out of it. So after fifty-some-odd days of clearing out waterlogged destroyed belongings and trapped sewage water in my place, now I have to clear out all the rest (the non-damaged stuff) so the floor, walls, ceiling, etc. all have to be gutted out and replaced. This task falls upon me. Since storage space is limited, I also need to take care (and time) to maximaze every inch while packing up. I also need to trash any remaining furniture that may have mold and trash belongings that I no longer want which I have no space for in storage.

I had hoped to have the episode 282 of Doctor Who: Podshock (recorded just prior to Super-storm Sandy) out by now. It is slowly going through post production now, but it is taking longer than I hoped because I am doing so many other things at the same time (relating to recovering from the storm, not to mention my sister being hospitalized).

Knocked Out By Sandy

Thanks for all the concern expressed by all of our listeners... We will return once we are back up and running after the major set back caused by Hurricane Sandy... 

Knocked Out By Sandy -

Wrath of Sandy

On October 29, 2012 we were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. In addition to not having power, heat, phones, net, etc. for almost two weeks, we were flooded with sewage water. Three and half weeks later, we are still expelling destroyed waterlogged stuff and trapped water from the premises.

Best Wishes to Louis after Hurricane Sandy

In case there are members here that don't follow Louis on Twitter or Facebook - please note Louis is mostly offline due to the terrible effects of Hurricane Sandy.

Although he is OK but very tired , he and some members of his family have been lashed by this freak event which has caused great damage.

As well as water ingress he is without power or internet and is conserving his iPhone for emergency use.

Our thoughts are with you Louis and your family plus of course the millions of others struggling in those badly affected States.

Best Wishes, daveac

Seeking copies of the Gallifreyan Embassy Fanzine

Greetings Friends,

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.

A Pond Farewell and a New Home for the Holidays [Infographic]

By now I will assume you have seen the latest episode of Doctor Who, The Angels Take Manhattan. If you have not, you may want to stop reading this until you have because this piece may spoil the episode for you. So consider this a spoiler alert (insert cloister bells here). 

In this next to last episode of the year 2012 we see the Ponds for the last time. Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) are doomed to live the rest of their lives in Earth's past without any further visits from the Doctor… Or we are led to believe at least. Though never say "never" in Doctor Who as it has been proven time and time again.

What did you think of their farewell?
