New York Comic Con is here again! October 13-16th at the Javits Center in New York. It's the largest east coast popular culture convention. Each year, it is growing in size and this year is no exception.
We have been attending each year and last year we recorded an episode of Doctor Who: Podshock live at the event to a standing room only audience with special guest Tony Lee of IDW Publishing (Doctor Who ongoing comic book series). You can listen to our live show from 2010 here: Doctor Who: Podshock 225. We would had done another live show this year at the event, but unfortunately, there isn't a Doctor Who guest there this year. Last year, Alien Entertainment brought over Daphne Ashbrook (Grace from the 1996 TV movie). Word is this year they are bringing Ian McNeice (Churchill) to their booth. You may recall, we interviewed McNeice earlier this year live on stage at Gallifrey One (see Doctor Who: Podshock 240.
Here is a little taste of New York Comic Con in this video from last year (2010):

Elisabeth Sladen's passing and other Doctor Who news, Anthony S Burdge and Jessica Burke report on the Doctor Who 2011 NYC Premiere event, feedback, and more.
We are a week out from the launch of the new 2011 series of Doctor Who. I don't where the time goes. It's here again. Being that the next Sunday after next Saturday's premiere is a holiday, the first live over-the-net show reviewing the new Doctor Who episodes of Doctor Who: Podshock will be on the following Sunday, May 1st. We may or may not be using Talkshoe again. I am exploring other options if anyone has any to offer. Stay tuned here for forthcoming details.
But before next Saturday comes, this Saturday (April 16, 2011), or for some already, today, I will be speaking on a panel at I-CON 30 from 3pm to 4pm (EDT) (in room 111 in the Javits Lecture Hall at SUNY, Stony Brook, NY). The panel is titled, '21st Century Doctor Who.' Ken Deep of Doctor Who: Podshock will also be on the panel. The panel is being organized by Docking Bay 516 for I-CON. So if you are attending I-CON this year, be sure to attend this panel.
In the meantime, the latest episode of The Sonic Newsdriver is available. Along with the usual Doctor Who related news, it features a 'live' interview with Anthony S Burdge @MythicDocWho while he was in line for the special premiere showing of the first two episodes of the new series in NYC which took place on Monday, April 11th.
Speaking of The Sonic Newsdriver, the companion app for the podcast is already available in the Apple iTunes App Store for iOS devices (App Store link) and on AppBrain for Android devices, it is now also in the Amazon Appstore for Android devices. See details here.
