Christmas came early this year when I received a message from our very own Louis Trapani this morning. That message - a link to the following story - was Christmas come early.
The Doctor and River Song Reunite for a Spectacular Christmas
Normally, I would prefface this notice by stating a most appropriate phrase; however, today...SPOILERS wouldn't be sufficient.
Alex Kingston returns on Christmas Day 2015 to the role she made famous - River Song.
Legendary composer/musician Dominic Glynn, best known for his 1986 version of the Doctor Who theme, will be performing at a special concert to kick off the L.I. Who 2 weekend. The Trial of a Timelord composer will appear at Time-Flight concert: A Celebration of Long Island Doctor Who on Thursday November 6th, 2014 at a unique venue: The Long Island MacArthur Airport.
Dominic Glynn will be performing selections from his June 16th release, "Doctor Who: The Gallifrey Remixes" EP, available on i-Tunes, Amazon, and all the usual digital services.
Also appearing at the pre convention event is Chicago based Time Crash, with additional performers to be announced. Tickets can be found here: http://time-flight.com
Emma Campbell-Jones made quite an impression on the Eighth Doctor and on Doctor Who fans as "Cass", the companion who almost was, in "Night of the Doctor".
This wasn't Emma's first encounter with the Doctor. She worked with Matt Smith and company in "The Wedding of River Song" as Dr. Kent. This beautiful and talented actress has made appearances on Red Dwarf, Silent Witness, and recently Law and Order: UK.
Emma Campbell-Jones is a star on the rise and now we'll get a chance to see why the Doctor was quite smitten with her!
