As the GPR signal winds its way into an eighth year on the Internet, Jay and Keir “discover” an early conversation (we write this in the ‘Sarcastica’ font) from the 2012 planning stages.
As a little bonus episode for our younger listeners, Keir is joined in the GPR studios by a 3-year old book critic to review the newest kids’ book publication from Pop Classics & Quirk Books.
Staying just safely within the bounds of professionalism and good taste, we spend a few minutes chatting and laughing with Noel Clarke, our beloved Mickey Smith, recorded live from the festivities at the third annual Long Island Doctor Who convention. https://media.blubrry.com/gallifreypublicradio/p/gallifreypublicradio.com/media.gallifreypublicradio.com/184clarke.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify | RSS
“He smelled of honey, he always let his tea cool far too long before he drank it, and he let me win at Scrabble…I think.” — Charlie Pollard, on the Eighth Doctor Recorded live from the third Long Island Doctor Who (or L.I. Who 3) convention in November of 2015, we sit down once again with the Eighth Doctor himself, Paul McGann, and discuss the convention circuit, his latest projects with Big Finish, and celebrating his birthday with fans in […]
Consider it the family reunion you actually want to attend each year — we return to the corridors and conference rooms of the Los Angeles Marriott, and the 27th iteration of the Gallifrey One convention. Joined (this time in person!) by Alyssa of Whovian Feminism, we recap our personal highlights of the weekend, console one another on our mutual exhaustion, and revel in all the memories we take with us on our respective travels homeward. From child cosplayers who delighted […]
Already reeling from the weekend’s news regarding Moffat’s step down, Chibnall’s succession and the delay of Series 10 until Spring of 2017, American Whovians were dealt yet another unexpected blow — the loss of Doctor Who content (both “classic” and post-2005) from the major streaming services Hulu and Netflix. Both. At once. Until further notice. In a supplemental reaction cast, Jay and Keir look at the repercussions of this change on accessibility to the program for one of the largest […]
If you’ve attended a Doctor Who themed convention in the United States over the past year, odds are very good that one of the camera crews seen milling about was shooting footage for an upcoming documentary titled, “Doctor Who Am I?”, a project from the creative minds of Vanessa Yuille and Matthew Jacobs, who co-produced and wrote the 1996 TV Doctor Who film. As a study of the American DW fandom and its fascinating embrace of a five decade-running British program, it […]
We asked GPR listeners to describe their reactions to the complete Series 9 in a one-term response, and were given completely valid answers such as “complicated”. Speaking personally? We’d have to add “exhausting” — in the best possible sense. With a madhouse collection of dark comedy, drama, suspense, farce, and a healthy dose of emotional gutting, there’s little we could possibly be left wanting after this remarkable season of Doctor Who. But there’s always Christmas, yeah? (Spoilers…) News Links: “Heaven […]
The television shines with that welcome glow, you begin to watch a new program or film for the evening, and all of a sudden, an unexpected familiar face pulls you completely out of the storyline as you realize that you’re looking at one of your beloved Doctor Who characters, but seen completely out of character. (Does that make sense?) This week, we discuss instances where Doctor Who alum appear out-of-the-blue in shows or films we weren’t prepared for, forcing us to try and reconcile the […]
So, what’s your ideal job? No, not that one. You know, the one you could have if nothing were impossible. Of course…Timelord, naturally. Is it any wonder that a comedic romp through the dangers, pitfalls and ripple-effect repercussions of time travel would be written about a group of science fiction geeks, in a film for science fiction geeks, and penned by a science fiction geek (who just also happens to be a current writer for Doctor Who)? It’s as if […]
