Tiny Rebel Games Discusses Doctor Who: Infinity

We may still be quite some time away from the nebulous time of “Autumn” and this new series of Doctor Who that keeps getting dangled in front of us like the proverbial carrot, but the team at Tiny Rebel Games is taking on the noble work of keeping us covered with new content. What’s more, they’re giving us just the right distraction to keep us from fully realizing how mind-dumbing our jobs are, how long the train commute is, and […]

A Whovian Thanksgiving

November in the United States means a few things to those of us enthralled with all things Doctor Who: conventions like L.I. Who and Chicago TARDIS, anticipation of the upcoming Christmas episode, and the Thanksgiving holiday that often leads to us gushing about the program to relatives who may or may not have any clue what we’re saying. At the intersection of this Venn diagram, however, are the ways in which we, as loyal and devoted admirers and advocates of […]

Classic Rewatch: Carnival of Monsters

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 […]

Basically…Run

Whether you are in pursuit of the rapidly shrinking portal that will allow you to return safely to your own relative time and place, or avoiding the grasp of some malicious alien race hell bent on tearing you atom from atom, if there’s one thing Whovians from all eras understand, it’s running. Either towards or away from danger, the act of getting one’s humanoid butt in gear is as essential a skill as escapology (thanks, Jo, just in time!), hand-to-hand […]

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 […]

Paul McGann: Interview from L.I. Who 3

“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 […]

Katy Manning: Interview from L.I. Who 3

Camille Coduri: Interview from L.I. Who 3

Boisterous, outspoken, welcoming and warm, you can always tell when an actor is playing a role that comes from parts of their own persona — and Rose’s unforgettable mum is no exception. Recorded live from L.I. Who 3, the New York Doctor Who convention in November 2015, the GPR staff sits down for a few minutes (and a few laughs) with Camille Coduri, “Jackie Tyler” from the new series. https://media.blubrry.com/gallifreypublicradio/p/gallifreypublicradio.com/media.gallifreypublicradio.com/gpr161coduri.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts […]

Dan Starkey: Interview from L.I. Who 3

Dan Starkey had a moment to ponder what American television programs his repertoire of characters could make appearances in. Seconds later, he popped up excitedly: “The ‘Big Bang Theory’ would be wonderful. Strax and Sheldon Cooper would clash brilliantly.” He drops immediately into the Sontaran’s eloquent grumble. “I fail to see any demarcation on this seat indicating that it is, in fact, ‘your spot’, human filth.” Given only a few minutes to talk to Mr. Starkey on the opening day of […]
