LIWho3.jpg

The very special guest of honor at L.I. Who will connect the convention with the beginning of Doctor Who history fifty years ago. It is the legendary director of the first episode "An Unearthly Child" and the missing historical classic "Marco Polo". 

He is the subject of the upcoming BBC America co-production "An Adventure in Space and Time" written by Mark Gatiss. The drama chronicles the early days of making Doctor Who. 

In his long career, Waris has worked with Hollywood legends like Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, and Bette Davis. He is a renowned storyteller and he makes a rare convention appearance at L.I. Who to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.

Here is the description from the BBC America site: 

Behind every great time lord there’s a great woman. Whether they’re busting Daleks or the Doctor’s ego, the women of ‘Doctor Who’ prove that you don’t need testosterone to save the universe.

The Science of Doctor Who

If you are like me and do not receive BBC America, you may be pleased to know that their latest Doctor Who related special, The Science of Doctor Who (science in Doctor Who? Who knew?) is available via iTunes for purchase ($2.99). 

I haven't seen it yet myself, so I can't comment on the special, though I have heard that not surprisingly it only focuses on post-2005 Doctor Who unfortunately. If you want to find it on iTunes, there's an affiliate link below to it.

Twenty Seven Today

This is what has become an annual posting here on the 18th of June each year… The Gallifreyan Embassy anniversary. Today marks 27 years since the organization was formed. What can I say that I haven't already said in my previous anniversary postings? Yeah, I can't believe so much time has passed… I believe I had said it before. Perhaps these photos that I took last week on the Long Island Raid Road say it all. We have come a long way since 1985. I never thought then that I would see train posters referencing Doctor Who in them as these do for BBC America.
