The Doctor-Companion Symbiosis: Live from (Re)Generation Who 4

When a relationship is forged that is truly greater as a whole than the sum of its parts, the bond can be nearly unbreakable. Not that this bond is not tested — time can be a cruel and unforgiving adversary. But with an (as of the recording) unknown set of relations between our incoming Thirteenth Doctor and no fewer than three “recurring characters”, it leads us to think long and hard about how the pair, or trio, or squad, of […]

The Impossible Pacifist (Live)

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama recently wrote: Whether we will be able to achieve world peace or not, we have no choice but to work towards that goal. If our minds are dominated by anger, we will lose the best part of human intelligence – wisdom, the ability to decide between right and wrong. Anger is one of the most serious problems facing the world today. In the aftermath of Series 10, as we look back upon the arc […]

Live from (Re)Generation Who 4

…Because what’s the start of a multi-day, sleep-deprived, packed-schedule convention surrounded by incredible talent and intellect, without thirty minutes of questionable humour, random expletive outburst, and some dork in a Delgado costume? Recorded live from the GPR Meet-Up at (Re)generation Who 4 in Baltimore, we spend some quality (subjective assessment) time with friends and listeners. Special thanks to the entire Onizumi Events con team for making us feel so welcome yet again! https://media.blubrry.com/gallifreypublicradio/p/gallifreypublicradio.com/media.gallifreypublicradio.com/gpr278.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download | […]

(Re)GenerationWho4 Preview

If you’ve been a listener to this cast for anything more than an episode or two, first of all, you have our deepest thanks. But moreover, you’ve immediately learned that we get a little excited over things that we get involved in, or attend, or hear about, or brush up against in market aisles, or…well, you get the idea. We’re a lively bunch. So it should come as no surprise that when Oni and Harknell, showrunners for the Maryland-based (Re)GenerationWho […]

The Writer’s Room (Live from Regeneration Who 3)

The only thing better than a great conversation about the intricacies of Doctor Who production with interesting and engaged fans like ourselves, is doing so on a panel at a convention chock-full of even more interesting and engaged fans. Could you top that? Sure. Have a discussion about writing for the show, with one of the most knowledgeable and entertaining writers from the program itself. Trifecta complete! This week, we tap into our convention panel audio archive to offer a […]

Dreamcasting (from ReGeneration Who 3)

This fandom is practically built on hypotheticals. Within the tempest of swirling “what if” and “I’ll bet that”, there are flying chunks of theory that range from the innocuous pipe-dream wishes (as in, “I wish they’d bring back Captain Jack, just one more time”) to the overly righteous demands (“if they don’t bring Jack back this season, I’m quitting the fandom forever”). As we get more and more invested in the infinite possibilities the program allows for, we may spend […]

Growing Beyond the Screen, Live from (Re)Generation Who

At the sophomore outing for the Baltimore-based (Re)Generation Who convention, we were thrilled to have, as we so often do at smaller, more ‘intimate’ cons, chat at length with the stars, creators, and of course, the fans of the Doctor Who universe. In addition to the casual time spent in mutual enjoyment of our favourite program, we were pleased to moderate a few panels that focused on topics that we have broached on GPR in episodes past, but now had the opportunity […]
