Well, I guess the reason Iíve been posting a bit more recently is because the topics have been interesting and Iíve had something to say. The way the forum is set up can be a bit difficult to maneuver so I just look at the recent posts section at the bottom of the front page. And yes, there is also the fact that I did meet you in person Taras, so it kind of makes it feel a bit comfortable conversing with someone you know is not an axe-wheedling loony on the other end. Wink Na, Iím not really in to they cyber-world/virtual culture thing. Rolling Eyes The Outpost Gallifrey forum can be a bit overwhelming, and although I have met a few of the regular-posters at the Regenerations convention in Swansea, if you post something there and comeback the next day, there have been at least five more pages of posts listed after yours; I canít imagine how anyone can follow that. Oh, and work has been a bit slow recently; that helps. Laughing Out Loud

My other hobbies (Magic: The Gathering) are a bit slow at the moment and when I stumbled upon the Podshock podcast, I thought I'd give these forums a try. I've received some excellent feedback from fellow users and it's nice to share my love of Doctor Who with others from around the world. I don't know anyone else here in America among my circle of friends who watch the show so it's nice to chat with people.

It is hard to keep up with some of the discussions on OG, I agree. At one point I avoided the forums there for so long, that my login expired... oops.

Too bad no one has developed software to prune non-informative posts from thread views... it would make lurking so much easier. Smile

I know what you mean, I used to try to get an opinion on Big Finish audios (especially of late) from the forum before going out and buying it. But you usually have three page of people saying, Ďgee, Iím really looking forward to this one,í or ĎI can hardly wait for this one, Ď followed by three more pages of, ĎMine just arrived, I canít wait to start listining to this one,í and Ď I was so thrilled to arrive home and see the big finish package in my mailbox,í before we finally start to get some reviews by the sixth and seventh pages which is still usually interspersed with, ĎIím so bumped out, I havenít received mine yetí or, ĎI was going to listen to it tonight, but my friend Betty came over and wanted to play scrabble.í

Eek!

Iíve given up and now I usually just go by Joe Fordís review in the review section. Cool

Maybe I should do a review of Other Lives, which I heard last week.

I've also preordered the new Sarah Jane Smith series and am waiting for the first episode to arrive. Thought of trying an audio review but not sure what medium to record it in on a PC (I've got Audacity) and what file size is acceptible. From previous episodes I think 5 mins is the optimum review time. Is that right?

When the forums were originally set up here, I thought it may have been a bit overwhelming in regards of the layout... having all the Doctor's eras in their own forums, and such.

As always, we are open to suggestions on how to make the forums easier to navigate and use. Is it a poor idea to have a forum for each era/Doctor? Should they be all in one forum?

Should we merge all the Doctor's forums 1 through 8 into one and call it "the classic series" and then have another one for Doctors 9 and up?

Should there be a forum for the audio adventures and another for novels and misc other 'expanded universe' material?

If you have any ideas to improve it, let me know.

Thanks.

Louis

I've lurked for a while, but you know how hard it is being a newb. It's tough to join in without sounding like a tool.

I'm having fun posting though- its easier to do when the forums are active.

As for your question about merging forums, I think I'd like that. I may not visit the Sixth Doctor forum on my own (as he isn't excatly at the top of my list) but at the same time, its posts may be of interest to me. And since the world doesn't revolve around me, I find that many time a thread in one Doctor's forum often involves more than just that era. So I'm for the merge.

Merging forums for Doctors is probably a good idea, except I would have a separate forum for discussions of current Doctor. Well, Doctors really, one for Christopher Eccleston and one for David Tennant since both will be current with the US getting the 9th Doctor in March. Bound to be more discussion on those since they will be showing episodes soon.

Let's call it switch hitting, or being flexible with my Doctor Who fandom. Yes, we met at The Christmas Invasion party, and many DWNYers felt you abandoned them last pub night considering the number of inquiries about you...

I have a soft spot for the GE, as I used to watch them manning the phones during pledge breaks when WLIW still showed Doctor Who in the '80s.

Hello Leala, fancy seeing you here!
Oh, and I like the avatar by the way!
I always knew someone would discover me over here sooner or later. Yea, Iíve been over here quite a bit when I can, its nice to be a guest in someone elseís house ya know! Ďcan really relax a bit more.

GE and DWNY are very much connected but different beasts so to speak. The DWNY forum (and group) was set up for the people in the New York City area to communicate and occasionally has people from outside the area join in. Its purpose is to facilitate getting together to party. The GE forum has people from all over [the world, really] with occasionally some from the New York City metro area joining in. Its also a bit easier to follow than the vast huge maze Outpost Gallifrey has become (you post something, come back the next day, and there has been six pages of posts after yours, how on earth does anyone keep up with it?).

So, take a tour around, Louis is a fantastic host.

Thank you Louis, we are all Who Yorkers arenít we! Mr. Green
Oh, thatís Leala, by the way, sheís one of the more vivacious DWNY characters Wink .
John and I are somewhat trying to reinvent the wheel as to what a Doctor Who ďgroupĒ should be. Truth is the internet has changed everything, and we hope DWNY is a reflection of that reality. You have done a wonderful job in giving re-birth to the Gallifreyan Embassy of Long Island with Podshock, as evidenced by the activity on this website and forum. Fantastic job!
DWAS, for example, is a group that has not really kept up with the times, whereas Outpost Gallifrey is now the real hearth of Doctor Who fandom.
I sometimes get e-mails from people asking permission to attend or bring a friend to either a Philly or NYC DWNY meet. You donít need permission, we meet in public and are open to anyone. You donít join DWNY, DWNY joins you.

I also joined in the last couple of days after recently discovering Podshock via iTunes. I have been a Doctor Who fan for a very long time - and a frequent visitor of Outpost Gallifrey and the BBC site. Have all the videos and many non-fiction books and music CDs, but I ashamedly have almost no exposure to the novelizations or Big Finish series. Still, BIG fan and I love the podcast and the website guys! Great work! Wink

First came across the podcast after christmastime via iTunes - fully caught up with all past episodes now and they just keep getting better. Thanks for all the hard work you do guys - keep it up!
I've just ordered some merchandise from the store for my birthday and very much looking forward to receiving it.
Long term fan since the Tom Baker years although I admit my interest has been very much re-ignited by the excellent new series.

Hey. Yeah, I've been listening to the Podshocks for a number of weeks - since about Episode 13 I think (and have since gone back to listen to Episodes 1 through 13), and have finally taken the effort to sign up for the forums. Podshock is great - keep up the brilliant work guys. I may end up sending in audio feedback one of these days.

I'm actually one of the elleged 'missing generation' or whatever it is termed - those who grew up in the time when Doctor Who wasn't on. I knew very little until 2005 about Doctor Who. Since then, I've managed to see all of the 5th, 6th, 7th and of course, 9th Doctor serials, and done fairly large amounts of background reading. Doctor Who is awesome, to say the least. Smile

I think you should also have a forum for events, like conventions & whatnot.

Also, one for fanfic/fanaudio/fanphotostories/gaming.

And, perhaps change the merchandise one to "classifieds".

Its good to see a New Hampshire/Massachusetts presence here. I grew up on Doctor Who weeknights at 7:00pm on PBS. I can't remember how many times I watched the series from Robot to Invasion of Time before they got new episodes. Not that I am complaining, because Tom Baker is definately my Doctor. When Who peaked we also had it on Saturday in movie style on another PBS station. Those were the days. Baker during the week and Davison on the weekends. Anyway, take care everyone.

I came onto this forum after
a) the demise of OG ( can't seem to even get into the website now - terrible shame)
b) loving the podcasts on my morning walk along London's South Bank. (If any of you do the same look for me grinning like a crazy person between the houses of Parliament and Tate Modern early every morning)
c) Finding that the balance of opionion on these formums generally not only mirrored my own but challenged my preconceptions in a non agressive way ( some people on other forums get a bit too personal for my liking)
d) Just have very little to do at work at the moment.

Hi Kat, welcome to the Gallifreyan Embassy! Yeah, I too enjoy the forums here. I love the various views expressed here... I often find differing opinions than of my own here as well, but that is what I enjoy. It makes me think things over perhaps from a different perspective.

As for the civility here, I must credit all the people here in our family that use this site. I never had to step in and stop anything in this regard. The one and only time I ever had to play "big brother" really was when some users were getting concerned about the amount of detail in a particular thread concerning getting episodes "by other means" (other than watching it directly on the BBC that is) prior to the release of DVDs or seeing it on other stations. And the only reason the conversation went that way was because people were just trying to help others out. I think foremost we are Doctor Who fans for Doctor Who fans... I know we use this sometimes as a tag-line for our podcasts, but it actually extends to our entire community here on the forums as well.

Now I hope I just didn't go off and jinx ourselves here. LOL.

But seriously, kudos to all the posters here for keeping this place a friendly and inviting place to discuss our favourite topic(s).

Cheers,
Louis

Hello all, I'm also a "newb" here (just getting used to your web speak you crazy kids). So far I've stuck purely to the Torchwood threads, acting mostly as a big wet blanket.

To be honest, I've been steering clear of Doctor Who web sites for the last few months, since the "there's Daleks in the void ship" cliff hanger of Army Of Ghost was pre-empted on some forum somewhere and completely spoiled the surprise for me. I envied the surprised reactions of my friends to the cliffhanger, so as much as I enjoy these forums I realised that I really wanted to be surprised by Doctor Who again.

So I've stopped frequenting the new series forums and have been sticking to Torchwood or old series chatter (loved the recent one about what could have been with the Five Doctors) although I've only recently started contributing.

And I've just started watching the old series from An Unearthly Child. Just got to The Aztecs. I can't believe how good these old ones are. William Hartnell is superb. Incredible that he was THE doctor for a while.

Whodoovoodoo- I cycle along the South Bank (one of those annoying people who cycles by the Oxo tower even though there's signs telling us to dismount). In fact I might be in The Founders Arms tonight! If I stay there long enough I'll be grinning like a crazy person too.

Welcome - it may not seem busy at times - depends where in the world you are.

I'm in the UK and often I'm just signing off at 1am when the US crowd hit the site - although don't tell their bosses - but a few sneek a quick look around during their workday.

You can always add yourself to the Podshock Frappr map - check right down the righthand site of the main page for details.

Hello!

I feel like I know a lot of you because I've either heard of your or heard your actual dulcet tones on Podshock. I'm still sloooooowly catching up on the episodes. I started from the beginning and have made it up to March of this year.

Looking forward to reading and commenting...

Hi i am Rob i became a fan of Doctor who after my brother Carred on bugging me to whach Doctor who so i did.....My first epasode was parting ways............Bastard i am still kicking myself for not giveing it a chance when it first started with the new season But i hope i redeamed myself with preordering the 2005 season.

Well luckey for me my brother had recorded all of it on freeview so i was ready for the xmas invason.

When i got the 2005 season on DVD I remeber christopher eccleston saying he will be the first doctor to a lot of kids for this day and age..............Well i am 24 but i felt like a kid on xmas when i got season 1 on dvd and christopher eccleston will allways be my first and fave doctor billie piper is nice and all but that guy made me a fan as you three podcasters will say he is just fantastic.

David Tennent Dident pick up the ball he drop kicked and and chached it he filled some huge shues and i enjoy and am glad he ca pull it off but in my hart and same with my ex GF christopher eccleston is my first and will allways be hard to forget lol

I came across podshock about 2 months ago i was looking for a new podcast Due to one of my fave podcasts haveing a podcast dry spell [url]http://www.geekshow.us/[url] i decided to look for a differnt TV show type of podcast i liked Doctor who so i subsciribed to podshock (I am up to podshock 53) I really like the show its doctor who and most importently podcasters who dont sound like robots and i love the off topic banter that happens at times it cracks me up and keeps me intrested and i love it that you keep it as live as you can as when skype goes balls up.
But the biggie is when (Sorry i dont remeber your name) Goes on a rant about stargate and the sci fi channel i loved it really cracked me up.

Since i first liserning to your podcast i decided to give the classic seasons a go...Well kinda i got the doctor who usa/uk movie and the 5 doctors film due to wanting to know more about the doctors history and that is another reason why i like your podcast Doctor who is the longest running sci fi show going and you guys give new fans like me a brillient guide.

Well i best end this but thank you all of you for giveing us a excellent podcast and a differnt view to a classic often discribed as trippy show DOCTOR WHO.

Thank you all

This seems to be the place to introduce oneself, so here goes...

I'm Jeneral, a 30-something legal secretary in central Florida - yes, I'm yet another one of those bandwagon-jumping Americans who discovered Doctor Who in 2005. Since then I've seen, via Netflix and "other means," a story with every Doctor except Six. (Gotta get on that.) I'm loving the rich history of this show, and although I found the sheer amount of material to be a little daunting at first, now I'm loving it because it means it'll be AGES before I run out.

I found Podshock in September of 2006 when I got an iPod for my birthday and thought "Hmmm, so what's this 'podcasting' thing I've been hearing so much about?" I really enjoy the podcast and look forward to every new episode.

After much deliberation, I've decided that my favorite Doctor is...well...whichever one I've just watched. I'm fickle that way.

Looking forward to getting to know folks on the forums!

Hello, I've just started listening to the podshock (I typed Dr. Who into itunes search engine!) I downloaded back to no. 45 then started listening Cool

Just to let you know how much I enjoy the podcast and look forward to listening to the next one.

I'm in Sheffield, UK and am old enough to remember most of the Doctors (although WH is a bit hazy, I think I remember the films more than the episodes) John Pertwee was 'my' Doctor, although I do remember watching a lot of Tom Baker!

I heard daveac on the 'Feedback' section (I think it was no. 71?) I went to 'tin-dog' and downloaded all your podcasts onto my computer, I'll listen to them as I'm reading this forum! Mr. Green

Anyway, see you all later!

Hi, my name is Tawm, I'm living in Rhode Island in the US. I've been a Doctor Who fan for twelve years.

Okay, sorry. That was a lie. I wish that were true, but I've been a Doctor Who fan for twelve weeks. But I think what lack in longevity, I make up for in enthusiasm. I've digested all the new episodes and a bunch of the old episodes, and gotten some of my friends into it as well.

My favorite Doctor is all of them.

Anyhow, the way I became a Doctor Who fan was that I had been hearing about it for years (especially being a long-time Douglas Adams fan) and it had always sounded like something I might enjoy but I never got around to checking it out. Finally, I did, and I wish I had done so sooner.

I've been listening to Podshock for most of the time I've been a Doctor Who fan, so I figured I ought to join the forum and join the fun!

Thanks for the general welcome, Taras. And also to daveac, who welcomed me on my recent link posting (Marthaís brother Leo).

Iíve been a Doctor Who watcher, on and off, since the Hartnell days and enjoy being able to watch something thatís entertaining (most of the time). I watch very little TV these days, as I get plenty of dťjŗ vu with most of the programmes. Not so with Doctor Who. Even when they go over old ground (like the Daleks and Cybermen) the writers, both old and new, always seem to try and give it some twist and turns to try and keep it fresh for the viewer. The new Whoís have a completely different feel about them compared to the older ones. Not a bad thing, just different again. Of course, itís easier when your main character can go anywhere, at any time.

I donít really have a favourite Doctor, I think theyíve all done a pretty good job in their own way. Some of the companions have been not so great, but overall itís a great show and long may it continue to be on our screens. Big Grin

First, welcome to all the mid-term (S3) newcomers to our happy playground.

Second, a horrible thought - perhaps humans are the only ones left after the 'Time War' that are worth visiting anymore. We certainly have had a host of "Ancient & Mythological" visits of late. Sooner or later Martha has to wonder (as do we here) if there is more out there than just the past & future of humankind that deserves such attention/intervention.

Hi -

I'm an old school fan who first discovered Doctor Who when it aired on PBS in Boston back in the late Seventies. My first memories of the show are from "Robot," although I have several memories from the Hinchcliffe years forever etched on my childhood psyche.

I became quite a big fan and follower of the series in my teenage years, but my interest started waning during the final seasons. Even at fifteen I realized something wasn't quite right...though having rewatched some of the stories I think the music was the biggest barrier to my enjoyment of them.

Anyway, I never completely lost my interest and enthusiasm for the series...it just sort of lay dormant as I moved through life coming to the surface again briefly when I studied in London in the Nineties, and then again with the Fox movie. The new series, which I quite like, rekindled the flame, and I've been amazed to discover all of the great developments of the last decade (e.g., lost story audios, original audios, books, etc.). Now, I can finally catch up on the gaps in my Hartnell and Troughton while traveling for business - never would have thought it possible when reading those Haining books so many years ago. Smile

And my hat's off to the crew of this great forum and podcast. Over the last several months, I've been digesting and enjoying the discussions of Louis, Ken, and James - great stuff and good fun. And, of course, I can't forget mentioning those stellar reviews from Darth. Really great work, and I'm happy to finally submit a post to the forum.

Just thought I'd drop in and say a quick "howdy and hello" to all of the fine folk here in the forum.

Strangely enough, outside of Doctor Who, I'm not a huge sci-fi fan (please don't stone me). Growing up, all of my friends were pretending to be "Star Wars" characters (who the hell is this Wedge Antilles I keeping hearing about?) and I was either attempting to be Doctor #4 or James Bond (Connery, of course!). Nevertheless, I'm determined to see Blake's 7, so I'm saving up for a region-free DVD player.

*editor's note* - I've just been told that James Bond is a science fiction/fantasy character. So I guess I am a sci-fi fan.

I'm one of those "High Fidelity" music geeks. I love just about everything: Americana, Freakbeat, Mod Revival '79, British Invasion, Doo Wop, Early Psychadelia, Stax-Volt, Pre-1965 Country, Punk '77, Power Pop, Northern Soul, New Orleans Jazz, Jangle Pop, Ska Revival, British Folk-Rock, No Wave, Proto-Punk, Garage Rock, Free Jazz, Jump Blues...alright, I'll stop there. If you really want to read more, feel free to "friend me" on myspace or send me an email.

Anyway, I'm here to celebrate the majesty known as Doctor Who! May the good Doctor have an inifinate number of regenerations.

Welcome to the forums.

Assuming that you are in the US, saving up for a region-free DVD player is not too bad, mine cost $60 at circuit city. However you will need to save up to buy Blake's 7 DVDs. You can get a box set of all 4 series from amazon.co.uk (which is by far the cheapest way of getting them) but it is 100 pounds sterling, i.e $200 at current exchange rates.

We actually have 874 registered members on our site at the time that I am posting this message. I am guessing that after a person does not log back on the site after a certain predetermined time (which I am not sure of what that may be) they are considered inactive.

So even though we are constantly having new members signing up, we are also having existing members not staying "active" (and thus falling off the "active" list) so the "active member" count may actually drop even though there are new members signing up.

Also that figure 874 represents actual real registered people on the site as I manually review and delete any spam-bots that make it through the initial registration process. If we were to count spam-bots registrations, that number would be perhaps 10 times as big, if not larger.

Cheers,
Louis

Au contraire, my friend... The evil spam-bot accounts are being deleted before they have the opportunity to pump up our numbers.

Otherwise, they could be like the Toclafane and be quite annoying.

Cheers,
Louis

Guess I qualify as a newbie as well...

After listening to Podshock for over a year, and ESPECIALLY after meeting Ken and Louis at Gallifrey... I figured it was time to get involved! Because of my busy schedule (see profile), it's also the first forum I've EVER subscribed to... but thanks to Podshock (coupled with my life-long love for all things "Who"), I'm hoping to become a frequent contributor. Thanks to all for welcoming us "new-bloods" with open arms!

Let's get this party started!

Hey Josh, Good to meet you at Gallifrey. I was the third guy at the table with Ken and Louis ( I mention that because who can remember when there's alcohol involved.)

The thing we have to do next year is schedule a specific time that all the Podshock listeners meet at the Champions bar for a meet and greet. That would be fun.
I'm gonna remember that for next year. --Billy

New member here *waves*.

I've been listening to Podshock for a little over a year now (and really enjoy it), and I've lurked on the forum every now and then, so I figured it was time for me to go ahead and join Big Grin.

It's nice to see even more new members to the Forums - don't be shy - this thread is here to welcome you.

And if you didn't already know - try to tune into the LIVE podcast - DR Who Podshock that is open to all.

Usually at 12 noon EDT - but we are covering the Series 4 episodes the day after they have airred in the UK
- so there will be spoilers if you haven't yet watched the story.

Cheers, daveac

I guess this should have been my first stop-off to post, but oh well. Anyway, I'm Beksy (that's close enough to my real name, thanks), I've been listening to Dr. Who Podshock for a month or so while I commute to and from work, and Romana's probably my favorite reviewer (sorry boys!). When it comes to fannish stuff (non-plot related observations), she tends to say a lot of what I'm thinking.

I've been a Doctor Who fan for about four years (five, if you count the fact that I did watch the movie and the Eighth Doctor was my first Doctor). I was perfectly happy to watch the Sci-Fi network airings until I realized the BBC airings are dramatically earlier in the year. Those episodes are much longer and much better (thank you, Psychic Network!).

I'm still learning the board's particulars, and I'm having lots of fun.

Can't wait for the Round-Up!

With the amount of spam-bots constantly knocking on our doors to come in each and every day, it is always refreshing when it is a real person...

Sorry, I just had to delete about 60 pending spam-bot accounts that wanted access here.

Hello - Another long-time Gallifreyan Embassy reader/listener who finally signed up himself. You can only read other people's comments and opinions for so long before wanting to add some of your own. Smile
I'm looking forward to contributing my 2 1/2 cents worth (or 2 1/2 p) in this ongoing celebration of why we enjoy Doctor Who so much.

That's OK .

Look down the left side of the page to the 'User Functions' section and click on 'Account Information'

There is a box there to to add a sig and you can upload a small picture for your avatar.

The size on the forum is 75x75 so if you sort out one excactly that size on your computer it should look just the same online.

There is a 'Browse' button to find it on your PC and to upload. Keep the file size to under 10k (ie very small)

There are other sections for 'Bio' etc.

Cheers, daveac

PS when you've found your way around - if you have any personally taken Dr Who related pictures - why not add them to the Media Gallery (see top of page)

Hi everyone. I realised after watching Army of Ghosts/Doomsday that Adeola is an anagram of my initials and surname.

I've now been dragged, kicking and screaming, into the 21st century with broadband internet, iPods and podcasts. Didn't realise what a strong presence the Whoniverse had on the web!

Louis, Ken and James are doing a really good job with Podshock and as well as the new episodes, I'm working my way through the back catalogue, courtesy of iTunes. I expect most, if not all of you, know about the DWO Whocast and the Tin Dog (I've seen his thread on here) but if you've never listened, give them a go,too.

I'm from the UK and have been watching the good Doctor since the beginning (yes, I am that old!).

Yes welcome Adeola.

I hope you know there are 2 PodShock feeds on iTunes with some different content. The PodShock LIVE has episodes on the individual Series 4 episodes for instance.

Also why not try some of the CIA: Cultdom in Audio podcasts (also on iTunes) check which a Who related.

And 'Hoo' has his his new podcast as well 'Hoo on Who'

Thanks for the welcome, folks.

I discovered Podshock Live yesterday and have subscribed to that as well. Trouble is, when am I going to find time to listen to all this? Laughing Out Loud
