The Doctor Who Movie (Drinking Game Commentary)

When you have the perfect storm of bad ideas: a large group of opinionated Whovians; a desire to watch the Eighth Doctor’s 1996 debut; a plethora of assorted drinks; a readily available set of drinking game rules; and it happening to be St. Patrick’s Day weekend…oh, you get the idea. Mistakes were made. This week, joined by friends and GPR guests Julie, Tanu, and Raemani, we fill our glasses and provide a less-than-professional commentary to the 1996 Doctor Who “pilot” movie. […]

The Return of Doctor Mysterio

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…and with a year like we’ve had, the lyric could not be more apropos. We’ve been (figuratively) starved for new Doctor Who since this time last year, and so with reckless aplomb, and a massive suspension of disbelief, we point one fist to the skies, leap upward in defiance of gravitational pull, and…pick up where the last Christmas special left off. This week, we find out once again how the Doctor is coping […]

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 […]

The “Doctor Who Am I?” Documentary Project

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 […]

Hey, It’s (That Doctor Who Actor)!

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 […]

When Dark Eyes are Smiling

It’s no secret to anyone who has listened to GPR for any length of time that we are tremendous fans of the audio productions that emerge from the Big Finish studios. They bring the classic era to life over and over again in artistic and magical ways, expanding upon the Whovian universe and allowing established televised characters (Doctors and Companions alike) to flourish and grow beyond their time on screen. But where we feel they truly stand out (and this may […]

A Chat with the Doctor(s)

Long Island Doctor Who arrived during the weekend of the Series 8 finale, and we were there to enjoy it with 1,300 other Whovians…and had the privilege to interview none other than Frazer Hines, Nicola Bryant, Terrance Dicks, Colin Baker, and Paul McGann.

One L.I. Who 2 Remember

We knew we had arrived at a very special place when the little Nissan compact in front of us had license plates from over 1,800 miles away, and a plush Dalek hanging from the rear-view window. Unpacking the recording gear and heading towards the lobby, the unmistakable “Official TARDIS Chase & Recovery Vehicle” owned and operated by the gifted TARDIS Tara dominated the first two parking spaces like a Whovian shrine. A glance to the right displayed a small sign […]

Paul McGann @ Comicpalooza 2014

Paul McGann: Comicpalooza 2014

There are certain things that are just unfortunate in life: (a) Nutella is not sold in gallon buckets; (b) Americans will likely never embrace the metric system; and (c) Paul McGann will never get enough screen time in the role of the Eighth Doctor. Thankfully, we have days’ worth of audio material to enjoy, and thanks to intrepid GPR reporters on the scene at Houston’s Comicpalooza 2014, a thoroughly enjoyable Q&A session with Mr. McGann. From his recollections on preparation […]
