Fans and Friends Come Together to Help

Doctor Who fans are coming together on the net to help out a fellow fan and friend, Johanna Mead. Johanna ( @britgeekgrrl ) is well known at Doctor Who conventions across the US for her detailed and creative costumes, she is also a writer and an English expatriate living in northern California. Unfortunately, her husband had just recently lost his battle against cancer and the online community of fans and friends have come together to help raise money to help offset the costs of the final arrangements.

Thank WHO

bigthanks.jpgAs you probably already know, in the US, we are currently in the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. It is a time when many stop and give thanks and express our appreciation for what we are grateful for in life.

Therefore, this posting is an opportunity to express my thanks to everyone that has listened to and supported Doctor Who: Podshock over the years. That in all likelihood means everyone reading this post.

Thank you.

Now in our fifth year in production, we could not have done it without you.

I thank Ken Deep and James Naughton who have been there since the very beginning, as we would not be where we are today without them. They volunteer their time and efforts on an ongoing basis to bring you the show you know and love.

It's Party Time on the Sci-Fi Party Line Podcast

The Sci-Fi Party LineLast week I had the pleasure of being a guest on the Sci-Fi Party Line podcast. I was invited to come on episode 39 of the podcast hosted by Cat ( @fancyfembot ) and Eric Escamilla ( @Bullitt33 ) (we just had Eric on with us in Doctor Who: Podshock 169).

The Wedding of Sarah Jane SmithIn it, we discuss The Sarah Jane Adventures episode, The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith which guest stars David Tennant, the preview clip of Dreamland (the new animated Doctor Who adventure), and the upcoming Doctor Who special, Waters of Mars. We even ponder on the upcoming new series starring Matt Smith with Steven Moffat. Plus we touch upon Torchwood as well in this episode.

Another Reason to Avoid Flying Buses in Doctor Who

I have no idea why, but wired.com had this video on their site today. It features David Tennant and Russell T Davies at San Diego Comic Con talking about Doctor Who and in particular some of the difficulties they had with the bus in the then most recent special, Planet of the Dead.

DWNY Presents Gary Russell with his own Mug

We had the privilege of sitting down with Gary Russell for an indepth interview before joining the DWNY Meet Up on Wednesday, the 19th of August 2009 at the Peculier Pub in Manhattan. It was there that Gary was finally presented with his own DWNY mug. Look forward to our interview with Gary Russell in future episodes of Doctor Who: Podshock. In the meantime, here is a video of Gary being presented with his own DWNY mug (dark grainy video shot in the pub using an iPhone 3GS).

Dancing TARDIS, Par for the Course at Gallifrey

This video came my way courtesy of our own Tara Wheeler who is actually in this video. No, she is not the one dancing, nor is that her TARDIS which is dancing, but she and her TARDIS are there nonetheless. She quickly takes to safety in her TARDIS when the dancing one enters the room at Gallifrey 20 (February 2009). I know that is what I would had done as well.

Gallifreyan Embassy Blogs

With our new website (3.0), comes a new feature of blogs. It basically means in addition to news and other postings featured on our site, we will have regular contributors posting blog entries here as well relating to all things Doctor Who including the spin-offs of it.

Currently, the bloggers will be limited to staff and crew of the website and Doctor Who: Podshock, but will also feature other writers. One of which you will know from our podcast, but perhaps more so from his weekly This Week in Doctor Who (TWIDW) listings on Outpost Gallifrey and the TWIDW Yahoo Group, we welcome Benjamin Elliott who will be posting This Week in Doctor Who here as a regular blog.
