Join Us on SL and 'Wet' Your Appetite for Waters of Mars
What better way to whet or rather 'wet' your appetite for Waters of Mars coming to BBC One on Sunday, November 15th by joining us for our seasonal meet up on Second Life the day before, Saturday the 14th of November.
You thought things were frightening on Friday the 13th, wait until Saturday the 14th when we all come together once again for a Gallifreyan Embassy / Doctor Who: Podshock virtual meet up! The following day you may be busy watching and re-watching the long awaited next Doctor Who special, Waters of Mars starring David Tennant, but you got nothing going on the day before, right? Now you do!
It doesn't matter where you live, there are flights to book, no train tickets to buy, no long car trips to endure… but there are TARDIS' to ride in Second Life! All you need is a broadband internet connection and reasonably current computer (Mac or Windows) to join us. The Second Life software is free to download and use.
Come and meet other fans like yourself on Saturday, the 14th of November 2009. Stop by any time you like that day, though you will not want to miss the special events taking place that day starting at 1pm SLT (Second Life Time = Pacific time in the US) when Victor1st will be giving demonstrations of the TARDIS console. There are various Doctor Who and Torchwood simulations which many had not seen last time because they did not want to leave the party. So before the DJ and party begins, you now will have a chance to check out the various incarnations of the TARDIS console room, peruse the virtual Doctor Who museum, and more. Perhaps even visit the Torchwood Hub (if it is still standing).
Then at 3pm to 6pm SLT the DJ and dancing begins. Join the fun.. it doesn't matter if you can dance in your first life or not, you will be able to do so in Second Life. Don't be shy, meet up with other Doctor Who: Podshocklisteners, hosts, correspondents, regular contributors, Gallifreyan Embassy members, and Doctor Who and Torchwood fans.
It takes place in Katrina (Cardiff and the Doctor Who Experience) on Second Life like last time (clicking on the linked Katrina name will bring you to the location in Second Life). See the video below of Victor1st giving an introduction to Second Life and the land of Katrina.
Please note that this video above was prepared for our meet up last August. There are always improvements and changes taking place in Katrina where we hold our meet ups..
(You will need to use the Second Life client software available free for Mac or Windows. Although not required, a microphone and headphones helps as you can speak and interact with others without having to type things out).
Once again we thank Terry Lightfoot and Nik Hewitt along with Victor1st and HBK, for their continuing collective help and efforts putting together these amazing events for us on Second Life.
