Doctor Who: Podshock is the longest running Doctor Who podcast (internet radio show) presented by the fan run Gallifreyan Embassy (est. 1985) and is the official podcast of the Gallifrey One conventions. We feature interviews with the Doctor Who cast and crew along with the latest Doctor Who news, reviews, interviews, commentaries and discussions from an international perspective.
The award winning Doctor Who podcast; Doctor Who: Podshock began in 2005 on the 20th anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy. In that time, it quickly grew into one of the most popular Doctor Who podcasts and continues to be to this day.
November 23rd of this year marks the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Sure there are specials on television honouring the event including Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor and the docu-drama, An Adventure in Time and Space, but aside from these, how do you plan to celebrate 50 years of Doctor Who?
Will you be pulling out your favourites from your DVD/Blu-ray collection to watch (or downloading/streaming them from an online service)? Perhaps having a marathon of episodes? Maybe you're putting together a theme party to celebrate it with friends?
Or perhaps you're not doing anything out of the ordinary, which is fine, but what does 50 years of Doctor Who mean to you?

Many have been asking about Doctor Who: Podshock and our other ATP shows in the wake of the devastation left by Superstorm Sandy. Recovery continues though our shows should be resuming shortly. I posted this latest blog entry about it. See the link below.
Sandy Aftermath Day 338: It's been "a year from hell" recovering and restoring from the mass devastation which Superstorm Sandy caused. There's still a great deal more to do, though it's getting closer to where a sense of "normality" will prevail while ongoing recovery work continues. This means our shows will be resuming shortly including Doctor Who: Podshock and perhaps a new one or two as well.
The Podshock Public Call Box has a new number. The previous number was lost among other things with Hurricane Sandy. The new number to leave feedback for Doctor Who: Podshock is now:
Thanks for all the concern expressed by all of our listeners... We will return once we are back up and running after the major set back caused by Hurricane Sandy...
On October 29, 2012 we were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. In addition to not having power, heat, phones, net, etc. for almost two weeks, we were flooded with sewage water. Three and half weeks later, we are still expelling destroyed waterlogged stuff and trapped water from the premises.
Date: Sunday, May 1st 2011
Time: 3:00pm - 7:00pm
Location: Eleanor Rigby's
133 Mineola Blvd, Mineola, NY
The Gallifreyan Embassy meet up returns to Eleanor Rigby's 133 Mineola Blvd. in Mineola, New York. Admission is free. Food and drink is available for purchase.

For those that follow me on Twitter probably know I had been fighting off some nasty bug shortly after the GE anniversary event, then came the Thanksgiving Day holiday here in the US... Long story short, it delayed production of all shows coming from ATP including Doctor Who: Podshock of course. Fear not though, there will be new episodes coming down the vortex soon starting with a DWP Extra show for supporting subscribers. We will try to step up production to catch up on the last couple weeks.
First up is a new episode of The Sonic Newsdriver. Available on The Sonic Newsdriver feed and on the Sonic Newsdriver Podcast App for the iPhone / iPod touch. See details below.

Brian Croucher of Doctor Who: The Robots of Death and Travis (2) on Blake's 7 interviewed, Daphne Ashbrook Doesn't Need No Doctor, a special adventurous anniversary message from Graeme Sheridan, news, feedback, and more!
This past Saturday, the 21st of August 2010 was not only our seasonal meet up on Second Life, it also marked the 5th anniversary of the Doctor Who podcast, Doctor Who: Podshock. (We used our last meet up last May to mark the 25th anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy).
People from all corners of the world came together to have fun and to meet Doctor Who: Podshock hosts, correspondents, supporters, and other Doctor Who fans. As usual, Victor led the much anticipated TARDIS tours, a staple of our meet ups on Second Life in which he takes a TARDIS load of people to other Doctor Who themed areas of Second Life. This time, he even allowed me to pilot a Jon Pertwee style TARDIS for one trip. It was very exciting indeed.
The TARDIS Tours took us to Who Island which had a replica of Stonehenge with 'underhenge' which we discovered the Pandorica (and it opened)! We also got to see the console room seen in this year's 'The Lodger' episode and as always the tour concluded in the Doctor Who Museum. The virtual museum chronicles all of Doctor Who throughout its long history.
"We're always in trouble! Isn't this extraordinary… it follows us everywhere!"
