Our Panel Line-Up for L.I. Who 5

It’s about as official as we allow ourselves to be! If you’re planning on joining us in three (!) short weeks in New York for L.I. Who 5, along with 1,500-plus other crazy-excited Whovians, here are our hosted and/or moderated panels for the weekend, including our live podcast recording that is now becoming a legend in our own minds! Oh No, Who Didn’t! (Friday @ 1:00 pm, Program Room B) The fast-thinking, high-sarcasm Whovian game from Gallifrey Public Radio is back. A […]

The L.I. Who 5 Preview

Our crack GPR team is scattered across the North American continent, but there are a few events on the calendar that regularly have us all converging on the same spot (Blinovitch Limitation Effect, be damned!). The Long Island Doctor Who convention is at the top of that list, and anyone who has attended in the four years prior knows precisely why. This week, we have the L.I. Who showrunner himself, Ken Deep, back with us to discuss the Herculean efforts […]

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 […]

Live from L.I. Who 4

We’ve had returns to alien worlds last seen when humans only perceived the world in black and white, scaly monsters thawed from the icy depths, and accoutrements on the TARDIS console that haven’t had hands jammed into them in over a generation. There’s something magical in realizing that a new episode of Doctor Who is actually using something from the “classic” era. (And hey, with the news today that Rona Munro is coming back to write an episode for Series […]

GPR Panels Announced for L.I. Who 4

The ink is drying, the program director is getting a much-needed break for a moment, and the weekend agenda for Long Island Doctor Who is starting to solidify. If you’re planning to join the thousands in New York for this momentous event, here’s a look at just a few of the scheduled goings-on that will feature your intrepid (exhausted, slightly punchy) Gallifrey Public Radio team. We look forward to seeing you! FRIDAY 12:00 PM Fan Panel: “Taking Our Kids to the Doctor” Younger […]

L.I. Who 4 Preview

We’ve never backed off our immense love and preference for the intimate, fan-run conventions, be they based on the Doctor Who fandom, or any other. There’s nothing like finding yourself in line for a morning cup of tea next to a celebrity or writer you admire, instead of rubbing far more than elbows with every living soul packed like so many sardines into an overcrowded convention hall. Long Island Doctor Who, or L.I. Who for short, has figured you the balance between intimacy of scale […]

Noel Clarke: Interview from L.I. Who 3

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

Derrick Sherwin: Interview from L.I.Who 3

There are a litany of reasons why Doctor Who script editor and producer Derrick Sherwin was greeted at the Long Island Doctor Who convention last November as the event’s Guest of Honor. He was responsible for the addition of U.N.I.T. to the program during the Patrick Troughton era, as well as the introduction of the sonic screwdriver. He was pivotal in the selection of Troughton’s successor, the action-ready and audience-charming Jon Pertwee. And he was adept at balancing the need […]

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 […]

Live from Gallifrey One: Station 27

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 […]
