Happy Birthday, Waris Hussein

Waris Hussein, the first director of Doctor Who (he had directed An Unearthly Child back in 1963) turned 73 today. Though you would never guess it if you spent some time with him as he comes across as someone much younger. We had the honour and privilege of spending a little time with him in Los Angeles last February when we introduced him as our special surprise guest in our Doctor Who: Podshock live show on stage at Gallifrey One. He is charming and intelligent.

A couple weeks ago for the 48th anniversary of Doctor Who I once again watched An Unearthly Child (Part One) as I do traditionally on the anniversary. Despite its age, it never gets old.

Happy Birthday, Waris!

Ian Bisset

Ian Bisset, Correspondent

Tara and IanTara and IanIan Bisset was born and raised in Lower Hutt, New Zealand and until 1988 was a Doctor Who watcher rater than a fan, it took the acting prowess of Colin Baker to start the young man off in his journey to becoming a Doctor Who fan!

By 1991, Ian was established in the Wellington Chapter of the New Zealand Doctor Who Fan Club and attended his first Doctor Who convention (it was one day with no guests an it was held in a school hall). By 1992, Ian was instrumental in organizing DoctorCon 2,

Yet another guest-less convention, but one that got the attention of the New Zealand media due to a typo.

Tara Wheeler

Correspondent Tara Wheeler

Tara Wheeler grew up with friends who were Trekkies. She knew there was something else out there waiting for her, but it wasn't until she was fourteen that she found it. Her first episode was 'The Five Doctors' so she likes to think that 'all of them' is her Doctor. She started knitting Doctor Who scarves the same year she discovered Doctor Who and thinks she's knitted somewhere around forty or so. She's met the actors who have played Two through Eight, plus most of their companions, writers, producers and staff.
