In honour of Sylvester McCoy returning to New York this month and the 25th anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy, we present you with this cut-down video of a WLIW pledge drive break from August 1987. At the time, like today, we had a new Doctor, the 7th Doctor, Sylvester McCoy, he along with the late Jon Pertwee and John Nathan-Turner, the then producer of Doctor Who are included in a pre-recorded interview segment in this 5th break of WLIW's Doctor Who marathon of The War Games. Eric Luskin of NJN conducts the interview.
Seen in this video among the Gallifreyan Embassy members volunteering is Ken Deep, and Louis Trapani of Doctor Who: Podshock, along with Tim Grogan, Beth Treckman, Pete "Bug" Reinert, PJ, "The Anti-Doctor", Monique, and others.
For the first time in more than a decade, Sylvester McCoy (the 7th Doctor from 1987-1989 and the 1996 TV movie) will be appearing at a New York event. On Sunday, the 16th of May 2010, Sylvester returns to New York for a Who York event at Cafe 50 (in Manhattan) starting at 6:30pm.
To our understanding the event is already sold out. Tickets were only $20 each. There may be some available the door, but contact Who York (http://whoyork.com) ahead of time to be sure. In addition, Sylvester will be signing items (yours or one picked up at the event) for $20.

I can finally announce our 3rd Who York event! We will be welcoming none other than the 7th Doctor - Sylvester McCoy - to NYC at Cafe 50 West on Sunday May 16, 2010 from 6.30pm.
Sylvester played the Doctor on BBC1 from 1987-1989 and reprised the role in the 1996 TV movie, when he regenerated into the 8th Doctor, played by Paul McGann! Sylvester is a fabulous entertainer and always full of wonderful stories, so the evening should be a lot of fun! We'll have interviews, signings and more!
Tickets are $20 and are available now at http://whoyork.com. Sylvester will also be signing, your item or ours, for $20.
Hope to see you there!

Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 179 EXTRA Edition
Running Time: 1:40:21
We review all 10 Doctor's eras of Doctor Who in this Deca-Doctor Special of Doctor Who: Podshock. As we approach the new 11th Doctor era, we review where we came from with the previous 10. Included are interviews we conducted over the years with various actors to play the Doctor (including Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann), some of which have never been featured on Doctor Who: Podshock before.
In August 1987, WLIW, a PBS station in Long Island, New York ran the epic Patrick Troughton 10 part story, The War Games as a marathon pledge drive. The Gallifreyan Embassy was there volunteering on the phones throughout the six hour event. We have already posted the first pledge break of the marathon, here are three more, starting with the 4th break (after episode 5, they skipped the break after episode 4) which includes a pre-recorded segment with the then new Doctor, Sylvester McCoy and producer John Nathan-Turner (with NJN's Eric Luskin). Sylvester talks about landing the role of Doctor here.
In the background can be seen Ken Deep of Doctor Who: Podshock among other Gallifreyan Embassy members, Beth, Tim, Monique, Pete, PJ, and others. This pledge break originally ran 17 minutes, but it is has been edited down to under 10 for YouTube.
