We like Johnny Depp 'cause Johnny Depp likes Withnail!

We love Gugu M'Batha-Raw (Martha's sister) too - she played Ophelia in this Donmar production of "Hamlet." I hope they let her appear in the Broadway transfer.  It will never come to LA, though.  Which sucks:

That's the big news of the day from me!

Cultdom podcast coming soon

Well here's my first 'Gallifrey blog' as I've been fairly busy.

As many of you who listen to the CIA podcast Ian 'The Sixth Doctor' and I have decided that after quite a few months of keeping CIA going - without really being able to push it forward - we are going to start our own podcast on Talkshoe.

Since I came up with the term we are going with the name Cultdom for this Talkshoe podcast - Talkshoe ID 54821

We will still run on Sunday (for some parts of the world early Monday) but at a later time of 3.30PM EDT.

This is so that we are clear of Podchock LIVE when it is up and running during Doctor Who Series 5 and also means that CIA under West can continue - should he so choose.

After chatting Ian and I decided to carry on with CIA upto and including Episode 100 (this is after a slight re-numbering that cleared out 0 minute shows.)

If I Didn't Love Charlie Ross, I'd Hate His Guts

Charlie Ross and Captain Kirk

 

Those of you in the UK who attend 10th Planet events will undoubtedly recognize the chap on the left - it's Charlie Ross, convention interviewer extraordinaire, who also emcees the cabarets and does his hilarious Who-based stand-up there.  Charlie is also a writer, and we've optioned one of his scripts. He's out from Glasgow for meetings this week, and I scored tickets for us to the last preview of "Farragut North" at the Geffen Playhouse.  Naturally, I was too busy to go, so Charlie and Mark (my producing partner) were treated to Mr. Big and Captain Kirk in the flesh while I slaved over a hot budget.  Here's some photographic evidence.  I am considering throwing Charlie out on the street as I write this.

"Who" and "Torchwood" on BBC Radio 4

As previously mentioned, I listen to a lot of BBC Radio on the iPlayer.  I signed up for the Radio 4 Newsletter (http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/newsletter/ ) and got this today:

Paul McGann in "Helen" at the Globe Theatre in London

My advice to anyone who's in the UK during the run is GO!  It's always interesting seeing these guys on stage; completely different medium.  McGann has done theatre in the past but not often, so grab the opportunity if you can!  The Globe is also a very cool place to see a play.  Have a drink at the Anchor, just a bit east of the theatre, and sit where Samuel Pepys sat, watching London burn during the Great Fire of 1666.

A Quick "Hello" and a Guide to Audible.com!

Just a quick "hello" to everyone and a big thank you to Louis and the guys for trusting me with this honor!

If you've heard the podcast I was lucky enough to participate in, you might know that I work in the film industry, and, after a horrible year, I've got a few projects that have come to the fore that are keeping me very busy.  So, this will have to be brief. 

I just wanted to elaborate on the Audible.com info Ken and the guys have been giving on the podcasts recently. I've been a subscriber for years and years (I drive over 20,000 miles a year here in LA!) and have discovered lots of books beyond the Who range that might be of interest.  You probably know that Paul McGann and Tom Baker, particularly, have done a lot of audio books and radio drama between them, and some of them are available on Audible

This Week In Doctor Who - May 30, 2009 (test posting)

This is a test post. I am reproducing last Saturday's edition of This Week In Doctor Who to see how it appears here. This will help me figure out if I need to do anything special when posting the new edition on June 6. Note - this is an omnibus edition with all 3 sections of This Week In Doctor Who and the Torchwood This Week section glued together. - Benjamin Elliott

Gallifreyan Embassy Blogs

With our new website (3.0), comes a new feature of blogs. It basically means in addition to news and other postings featured on our site, we will have regular contributors posting blog entries here as well relating to all things Doctor Who including the spin-offs of it.

Currently, the bloggers will be limited to staff and crew of the website and Doctor Who: Podshock, but will also feature other writers. One of which you will know from our podcast, but perhaps more so from his weekly This Week in Doctor Who (TWIDW) listings on Outpost Gallifrey and the TWIDW Yahoo Group, we welcome Benjamin Elliott who will be posting This Week in Doctor Who here as a regular blog.
