A Special Anniversary Event?

Gallifreyan Embassy's 2nd Anniversary Cake

As you already know if you read my previous post (It Was 25 Years Ago Today…), that today marks the 25th anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy.

Over the past few months we have been discussing having some sort of special anniversary event to mark the occasion this year. You may remember last year we held an event in Manhattan for our 24th anniversary in which we paired up with a monthly DWNY meet up and brought the lovely Daphne Ashbrook (Dr. Grace Holloway from the 1996 Doctor Who movie) to the event. See Happy Anniversary to Us… for further details.

We would like to something special for our 25th as well. It would be an event in the NY area, perhaps on Long Island as that is where it all began, yet still be accessible to our friends in NYC. Maybe a dinner event? Would you be interested in attending?

It Was 25 Years Ago Today, The Gallifreyan Embassy Began…

It was a quarter of century ago today, as hard as it is for me believe, is when the Gallifreyan Embassy began. Unbeknownst at the time, it was the day after the Discovery Channel was launched. It was also the day after the launch of the space shuttle Discovery (STS-51-G) which marked the first Arab and Muslim in space (payload specialist Sultan bin Salman bin Adulaziz Al Saud). Yes, it was 1985. Ronald Reagan was in the White House, Commodore launches the Amiga personal computer while NeXT is founded by Steve Jobs after leaving Apple Computer.

Just two weeks before we went Back to the Future in the theaters, the Gallifreyan Embassy of Long Island officially began.

2nd Bonhams Doctor Who Sale

The above pictured Cyberman head from the Second Doctor's period is one of many articles going on sale once more at Bonhams in Knightsbridge London.  Other props include Daleks also from this time (Power of the Daleks) K9 and two TARDIS's. The most interesting being the  TARDIS from 2005 from 9th Doctor, Christopher Eccleston.  This is part of an entertainment auction rather than just a Doctor Who specific one.  The auction will be taking place at 11am on the 23rd of June 2010 and lot numbers are 126 to 142 inclusive.  Lot 126 being an Dalek from The Chase and 142 being the 9th Doctors TARDIS.

Toby Hadoke's New Routine - Now I Know My BBC

Toby Hadoke is back, well if you have the Cd or Digital Copy "Moths Ate my doctor Who scarf!" He's never really away.  But after touring for over three years with "Moths" Doctor Who Fan and fan Favourite Toby, has a new routine quote from his web site.

"An affectionate and stroppy love letter to his favourite Auntie from the passionately squared eyed comedian whose previous show “Moths Ate Mt Doctor Who Scarf” received 100% 5 star reviews (Ed Fringe 2007), toured the UK and internationally, had a West End run, and spawned a Sony nominated radio series."

The 11 Doctors All Together

All 11 Doctors together at one time is something to make any fans hearts race faster.

this time though it's because they are being released as an 11 figure boxed set for the first time.  The set may become one of the most sought after items this year after the 11th Doctor's sonic screwdriver. Mainly by hardcore fans and some not so hardcore fans, 1st big point being that obviously Paul McGann's 8th Doctor is part of the set, and Tom Baker's 4th Doctor is in his season 15 garb.

Paul McGann in "Luther"

Not sure if you've seen it, but this is kind of crazy and out of control. Idris Elba is phenomenal, as we know, but McGann's character is fantastic too and it's the best he's been in years.  Definitely worth your time:
