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.
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. Classic and new series episodes will be screened. Light mayhem may occur! Plus we pay tribute to Elisabeth Sladen and Nicholas Courtney. Ken Deep is your host.
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.

Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 219
Running Time: 1:30:54
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!"
Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 218
Running Time: 1:29:01
We interview the legendary first ever director of Doctor Who, Waris Hussein. West Coast Correspondents Joshua Lou Friedmen and Amy Krell join us for this historic interview in which we discuss An Unearthly Child and Marco Polo as well as how Doctor Who of old compares to new. Plus Matt Smith puts on southern American accents in Doctor Who: The Runaway Train, and more!
As you probably already know, in the US, we are currently in the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. It is a time when many stop and give thanks and express our appreciation for what we are grateful for in life.
Therefore, this posting is an opportunity to express my thanks to everyone that has listened to and supported Doctor Who: Podshock over the years. That in all likelihood means everyone reading this post.
Now in our fifth year in production, we could not have done it without you.
I thank Ken Deep and James Naughton who have been there since the very beginning, as we would not be where we are today without them. They volunteer their time and efforts on an ongoing basis to bring you the show you know and love.

This Doctor Who: Podshock default cover art "TARDIS Trio" Style D was actually designed in the summer of 2009 reflecting some of the changes concerning our podcast as well as some anticipation of a logo change. It made its debut in the Gallifreyan Embassy Café Shop, August 2009
While listening to TARDIS Tara’s semi-live Comic-Con reports Podshock Episode 157, and reading and hearing various other reports on the Doctor Who panel, one comment really stood out in my mind. That was Julie Gardner’s comment on what made her fall in love with Doctor Who. She reported that the first story that Russell showed her when they started work on the series was the Season 17 story “City of Death”, and from that moment she said she has been a confirmed fan.
