Long Island's fourth annual Doctor Who convention features three Doctors this November!
For the first time ever in New York, three Doctors will appear at one convention, L.I. Who 4. Peter Davison, Colin Baker, and Paul McGann lead an all star guest line up that also includes Sophie Aldred, Frazer Hines, Anneke Wills, Nick Briggs, Jemma Redgrave, Clare Higgins, Richard Franklin, Daphne Ashbrook, Yee Jee Tso, Peter Purves, and many more.
Sylvester McCoy is OUR Doctor this November 8-10th at L.I. Who!
The Seventh Doctor himself and the star of The Hobbit makes his return to Long Island for the first time since 1999.
He joins previously announced L.I. Who guests Daphne Ashbrook, Frazer Hines, and Ian McNeice. Tickets are on sale now.
Finally after a long wait the winner of the Blue Peter competition to design a TARDIS console gets her prize.
This video features Colin Baker narrating the history of the police box in the UK. The shape that the TARDIS has been stuck in since The Unearthly Chid premiered in 1963. This feature was originally transmitted in 1993, part of the 30th anniversary of Doctor Who celebration by the BBC.
Thanks to @tvkirby for bringing this video to my attention.
On Monday's episode of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson it featured a segment on Gallifrey One 2011 featuring video shot at the convention which included our banners for Doctor Who: Podshock, as well as Tara Wheeler's TARDIS and Tara @TARDIS_Tara herself.
If you missed the segment with Chris Hardwick and "Bridger" recorded at Gallifrey One for the late night show, Graeme Sheridan @The2ndDoctor has embedded a YouTube video of it in his post, Gallifrey One on the Craig Ferguson Show. (Watch it while you can in case it is pulled off of YouTube).
Chris Hardwick presented his report on Gallifrey one last night on the Craig Ferguson Show. Tara Wheeler @TARDIS_Tara and her TARDIS make up the end of the report. Plus a special appearance from the Head of Pertwee.
This week is the annual CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas, which means there is a tremendous amount of tech related announcements coming out of the show. As often is the case, there is some crossover between tech and sci-fi. The Panasonic booth had a special "most impressive" (as they termed it) announcement of (pre-orders for) the Star Wars films coming to Blu-ray. I had heard there would be a TARDIS speaker system at the show, but didn't have much details on it. Engadget has come to the rescue (since I am not at the show myself) with this report of hands-on prototype of the new Speakal TARDIS speaker dock and Bluetooth speaker and IR remote control system.
I am assuming it will work with the iPhone as well as the iPod. The photos show an iPhone in the dock (a white at that). If the speakers are shielded enough to prevent GSM radio noise interference from the iPhone, it should work.
