From the superfans, to the casual viewer, to the brand-new to the program, there are challenges in keeping interest in the Doctor Who franchise strong during an indeterminate filming hiatus, and an ever-changing set of access points to aired content.
Facing at least a calendar year without new televised Doctor Who, we look to the many other ways we and all Whovians can “get our Gallifreyan fix” in most entertaining ways.
In the last of our panel sessions from (Re)Generation Who 4 in Baltimore, we discuss Chris Chibnall’s body of work to date, and what assumptions we can make (or hopes we can have) about what that CV will bring to the next season of Doctor Who.
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 […]
…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 | […]
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 […]
Start with months and months of anticipation, follow with days upon days of celebration and conversation, and close with hours and hours of weary return travel, and you have “The Gallifrey One Exhaustion”. In spite of the bags unpacked (and bags under our eyes), we recap just the smallest sliver of what made this Los Angeles convention something not only entertaining, but poignant and important as well. See you next year, for what we imagine will be a 30th anniversary […]
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 […]
Yes, we’ve been doing this podcast for well over five years. Yes, we’re all pretty positive, upbeat people who not only share enjoyment of the Doctor Who legacy, but enjoy each other’s company, as well. But no, we don’t always agree. In fact, in instances like this, we differ wildly. It’s okay, though. We’ll keep Jay around because he’s a genuinely good-hearted, intelligent, humorous guy. (Even if he would have no idea what a PRECIOUS GIFT of a classic story […]
As expected, the weekend spent in Long Island with a few thousand good-natured and excitable Whovians was a whirlwind of laughter, surprises, fascination, and even dancing (yes, that was Barnaby Edwards leading what could only be described as “The Dance Floor Revolution of the Daleks”). Through it all, GPR opted to keep spirits up and minds confused, with a series of game show panels designed to entertain and amuse. We sincerely hope we met our self-appointed challenge. This week, we […]
