Doctor Who: Podshock
Doctor Who: Podshock - The longest running Doctor Who podcast.
Our surprise guest at the Doctor Who: Podshock live on stage show (episode 141) at Gallifrey 20 (February 2009) was none other than Daphne Ashbrook (1996 Doctor Who movie) who joined Ken Deep, Louis Trapani, and James Naughton on stage along with Doctor Who Producer Phil Collinson and comedian Toby Hadoke.

Doctor Who: Podshock live on stage at Gallifrey 20 recording episode 141 on February 15, 2009. The image is a little blurry and with glare, but note the two Doctor Who: Podshock banners on stage. Also on stage left to right is Doctor Who Producer Phil Collinson, comedian Toby Hadoke, Ken Deep, Louis Trapani, and James Naughton. Kudos to Billy Davis for his help with the banners and this photo.
Colin had burst onto the Doctor Who scene taking over the lead role after Peter Davison stepped down in 1984 as the colourful and bold 6th Doctor. Although not his first association with Doctor Who, he had played Commander Maxil in the 5th Doctor story, Arc of Infinity. Blake's 7 fans will also know him as 'Bayban the Butcher' - a guest role he had in the series.

All news edition: Karen Gillan Recap, Outpost Gallifrey Closing, Gallifreyan Embassy New Website, Who Party 14 Toronto, Doctor Who/Torchwood Comes to Space in Canada, BBC America Launches HD, Planet of the Dead and Torchwood Children of Earth come to DVD/Blu-ray, 24th Anniversary Celebration, and more.
Thanks to the enormous success of our Second Second Life Meet Up in May, we had an overwhelming amount of requests at the event for us to do it on a more regular basis. To that end, we will be holding Doctor Who: Podshock / Gallifreyan Embassy Second Life Meet Ups now regularly.
Second Life is a virtual 3D environment that enables club members, listeners, website visitors, and all Doctor Who fans to come together to meet up, talk, dance, hang out, party, etc. no matter where you live. All that is needed is broadband internet access and the free Second Life client software (and a computer capable of running it). It breaks down the geographic barriers and make it easy for us to connect. It's the next best thing to being there in person.
