Terry Nation Would Had Been 81 Today (Yesterday)

Terry Nation, the creator of the Daleks (with nods to Raymond Cusick who designed them and of course Davros himself) for Doctor Who as well as the creator of the popular British sci-fi series, Blake's 7 would had been 81 years old today (well, now yesterday (8th of August) by the time you are reading this unless you are in Hawaii for the next hour or two). Of course his credits extend further than Doctor Who and Blake's 7. There was The Survivors, and episodes of various televsion series he contributed to both in the UK and US during the course of his career.

Terry NationWe lost him all too soon at the age of 66 in 1997. It was about ten years (give or take) before then when I had an opportunity to sit down with him and interview him. Unfortunately, the audio of that interview has slipped through a time vortex or a crack in space. Hopefully it is re-materialize at some point. I don't even have any photographs to share from that time. Perhaps like so many other cast and crew that I was meeting at that time I assumed there will always be the next time if I didn't get a photo that time. Sadly, there was no next time in my case with Terry Nation. 

My memories of Terry Nation is that he was very open about his work. You could tell he enjoyed having the opportunity to speak about it. There was certain intensity about him. He would be quick to correct you if presented with information that didn't jive with what he knew to be the case. Not in a rude a way, by any means.

Share Your Stories and Thoughts on Our Elisabeth Sladen Celebration DW Podshock Episode

Sarah Jane Smith

Last April we suffered a huge unexpected loss in the Doctor Who community and beyond. The death of the beloved actress, Elisabeth Sladen. Almost immediately following it, DWP Correspondent-At-Large, Colin (AKA "Abersoch") contacted me about putting together a special episode of Doctor Who: Podshock to celebrate Elisabeth Sladen and the Sarah Jane Smith character.

We had just started our series of live shows reviewing the new Doctor Who episodes from the spring 2011 series while Colin and I were discussing what we could do for a tribute. We couldn't record it then. Now that we are in between the spring block and the late summer/autumn block of new 2011 Doctor Who episodes, it allows us to record this celebration episode.

DVR Alert: Matt Smith and Karen Gillan on 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'

Once again, Craig Ferguson welcomes Doctor Who guests on his US late night chat show, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. This coming week we have both Matt Smith and Karen Gillan lined up to appear on his show, but not on the same night. It's Monday night's show for Matt* and Tuesday for Karen… *Maybe. I say maybe because according to the show's CBS website of this week's guests, it has Matt scheduled for Friday at the time of this writing. According to my DVR though, he's on for Monday night's show, so I would advise recording Monday night's show just to play it safe. If Matt is not on it, be sure to set your DVR for Friday. Remember when it comes to setting your DVR, since the show is at 12:35 am, it's after midnight, so techincally, it's the next day. Depending on your DVR, you may need to go Tuesday, July 26th at 12:35 am to find Monday night's show and to Wednesday, July 27th at 12:35am to find Tuesday night's show.

Both are "in town" so to speak -- well at least in CA for San Diego Comic Con taking place now.
