Eleanor Rigby'sThe event is taking place at Eleanor Rigby's in Mineola, NY. As you may have guessed by the name, it is a Beatles themed venue. It is very accessible from the LIRR train station as well as the Long Island Expressway and Northern & Meadowbrook State Parkways and there is plenty of parking in the rear. They offer a varied selection of menu options for food and beverages. Visit their website for more details and menu offerings. (Please note that the cover charge does not include food or drinks).

For 25 years now the Gallifreyan Embassy has been celebrating the adventures of a certain Time Lord through time and space. Now we are coming together to mark the milestone at this event which is open to everyone (you don't need to have been or be a member of the Gallifreyan Embassy)

Within the podcast one of the guys in charge of the Restoration team had the excellent news That the 1996 TV movie had just got the go ahead for a US release, after some hard negotiations with Universal, the owners of the rights in the US and Canada.

A Special Anniversary Event?

Gallifreyan Embassy's 2nd Anniversary Cake

As you already know if you read my previous post (It Was 25 Years Ago Today…), that today marks the 25th anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy.

Over the past few months we have been discussing having some sort of special anniversary event to mark the occasion this year. You may remember last year we held an event in Manhattan for our 24th anniversary in which we paired up with a monthly DWNY meet up and brought the lovely Daphne Ashbrook (Dr. Grace Holloway from the 1996 Doctor Who movie) to the event. See Happy Anniversary to Us… for further details.

We would like to something special for our 25th as well. It would be an event in the NY area, perhaps on Long Island as that is where it all began, yet still be accessible to our friends in NYC. Maybe a dinner event? Would you be interested in attending?

The 8th Doctor and his 'Company of Friends'


To make up for having to miss out on going to meet the man himself at Chicago TARDIS, I settled instead for the pleasure of listening to the recent Big Finish 8th Doctor audio – “The Company of Friends”. And a real delight it was too (more details on that below!). While listening to it, I marveled at the breadth of “friends” (or companions) that the 8th Doctor has accumulated, across a wide range of mediums. In fact, all told, it is possible that the 8th Doctor may have had more companions (15, by my rough count) than any other incarnation! This is all the more astonishing given the brevity of his television appearances – about 50-55 minutes of a 90-minute TV movie.
