Frazer Hines brings his one man show "The Time Traveling Scot" to The Producer's Club Grand Theatre in Manhattan on Friday July 8th 2011. There will also be a short Q&A hosted by Ken Deep from Doctor Who: Poshock and an autograph session with Frazer. This is a rare appearance by one of the Doctor's most popular companions in New York City. Details can be found at www.whoyork.com
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!

A few months ago, you may have read my post regarding Who York, and some of DWNY's exciting plans to create Doctor Who events and conventions in New York City. Well, the first of those plans has now come to fruition, with the announcement of the first Who York Event - A Who York Evening with..... Louise Jameson, who played Leela with the 4th Doctor.
Thanks for the welcome to the blog so far! This installment is a little bit more newsy than opinion - but rest assured I have more opinions to come!
Listeners to Podshock episode 157 will hear Jarrod Cooper, the chairman of the Hurricane Who convention (http://hurricanewho.com) taking place in Orlando, Florida from Friday October 30 - Sunday November 1 2009, mention a new endeavour taking place in New York City associated with DWNY - Who York.
Plans are still being made and will be revealed here shortly, but our first event is expected to be in November, 2009. If you bookmark http://whoyork.com you will see that we are already putting some preparations in place.
