David Tennant and Georgia Moffett Reunite in Doctor Who: Dreamland

DreamlandAs reported yesterday, the BBC has released the first image from the upcoming animated story, Doctor Who: Dreamland which is scheduled to be broadcast later this year.

Earlier this week we had the pleasure of interviewing the director, Gary Russell for Doctor Who: Podshock (stay tuned for future episodes featuring his in-depth interview) who spoke to us about this second outing of an animated 10th Doctor adventure. Gary had also directed The Infinite Quest which also starred David Tennant as the 10th Doctor along side with Freema Agyeman playing Martha Jones.

The White Robot Does Exist!

You may have seen the White Robot at a Doctor Who conventions, but does the White Robot really exist? Now there is an answer this question. Doctor Who: Podshock special correspondent, Billy Davis constructed his classic White Robot costume as a nod to the 1968 Patrick Troughton story, The Mind Robber. It has become a popular attraction recently at select conventions such as Chicago TARDIS and Gallifrey 2009.

The Doctor in Dreamland

The first peek at the Doctor as he appears in the animated Dreamland six-part animated adventure to be broadcast this Autumn on the BBC Red Button and Doctor Who website. It stars David Tennant voicing the 10th Doctor, with Georgia Moffat, and David Warner

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).

The Saga of Gary Russell and his DWNY Mug!

So on listening to Doctor Who: Podshock episode 159, the story was once again told of Gary Russell and his DWNY mug! Or rather the lack thereof! And I feel compelled to set the record straight! And where better than my blog on this very website!

I started running the Doctor Who New York (DWNY) group (on the web at http://dwny.org) last year, taking it over from a very dear friend who had built up the group since its inception in 2005, but for whom work was starting to take up too much time to keep it all going. Prior to this "regeneration", Gary had joined us at one of our meetups – the viewing of the 2007 Christmas Special Voyage of the Damned”. Before I took over, for those of you following along at home!

Gallifreyan Embassy / Podshock Apparel Regenerated

Since we introduced the first Gallifreyan Embassy T-shirts back in 1986, they have been popular fashion wear at conventions, meet ups, special events, PBS pledge drives, and just everyday wear. These original shirts and buttons have been long unavailable until 2005, when with the launch of Doctor Who: Podshock, we re-introduced Gallifreyan Embassy / Podshock shirts again.

Like the Doctor and the Doctor Who series itself, the shirts and other related items have been refreshed or "regenerated" if you like. Much of the same basic design remains, just slightly updated. Items include all various style of shirts in various colours. Men and women, plus sizes, kids and toddlers alike shirts can be had now. In addition to shirts, there are sweatshirts, hoodies, polo shirts, bibs, caps, bags, mugs, buttons, magnets, pet bowls, pillows, stickers, and more. Yes, even TIME MACHINES! Yep, time machines can be purchased as well, although most people use the term, 'clocks' -- they are still time machines. Plus more items. 

They are all available at the new Gallifreyan Embassy Cafe Shop.

On the heels of returning from San Diego Comic Con where BBC America saw a strong reception to its Doctor Who programming and panels (including appearing in person, David Tennant, John Barrowman, and Russell T Davies), and with the strong ratings that the recent airing of Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead brought in, BBC America has announced the acquisition of 13 episodes of the new upcoming Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor series. The new series shot in HD will be shown on BBC America shortly after the UK in the second quarter of 2010.
