Doctor Who: Podshock
Doctor Who: Podshock - The longest running Doctor Who podcast.
Chris (left) and Doctor Who: Podshock Special Correspondent, Billy (right) although he is not dressed up as the White Robot here, he is dressed wearing his shirt depicting himself as the White Robot that reads "The White Robot Does Exist!" Both are relaxing at the August 2009 DWNY Meet Up at the Peculier Pub.
You too now can be the White Robot with a shirt like this one.
So on listening to Doctor Who: Podshock episode 159, the story was once again told of Gary Russell and his DWNY mug! Or rather the lack thereof! And I feel compelled to set the record straight! And where better than my blog on this very website!
I started running the Doctor Who New York (DWNY) group (on the web at http://dwny.org) last year, taking it over from a very dear friend who had built up the group since its inception in 2005, but for whom work was starting to take up too much time to keep it all going. Prior to this "regeneration", Gary had joined us at one of our meetups – the viewing of the 2007 Christmas Special Voyage of the Damned”. Before I took over, for those of you following along at home!
Once again, our good friend, Victor1st at the Doctor Who Experience (Katrina) on Second Life has created an updated introduction video for our Gallifreyan Embassy / Doctor Who: Podshock Meet Up taking place on Saturday, the 15th of August on Second Life.

Since we introduced the first Gallifreyan Embassy T-shirts back in 1986, they have been popular fashion wear at conventions, meet ups, special events, PBS pledge drives, and just everyday wear. These original shirts and buttons have been long unavailable until 2005, when with the launch of Doctor Who: Podshock, we re-introduced Gallifreyan Embassy / Podshock shirts again.
Like the Doctor and the Doctor Who series itself, the shirts and other related items have been refreshed or "regenerated" if you like. Much of the same basic design remains, just slightly updated. Items include all various style of shirts in various colours. Men and women, plus sizes, kids and toddlers alike shirts can be had now. In addition to shirts, there are sweatshirts, hoodies, polo shirts, bibs, caps, bags, mugs, buttons, magnets, pet bowls, pillows, stickers, and more. Yes, even TIME MACHINES! Yep, time machines can be purchased as well, although most people use the term, 'clocks' -- they are still time machines. Plus more items.
They are all available at the new Gallifreyan Embassy Cafe Shop.
A Doctor Who: Podshock time machine! Or if you like, a clock. One of the many new items now available at the Gallifreyan Embassy Cafe Shop.

Once again, we will be meeting up via Second Life for another exciting and fun meet up. Best of all, you don't have to drive there to attend. No matter where you may live in this world (or any other), as long as you have a broadband internet connection and a relatively contemporary computer you can join us!
After a very successful return to Second Life last May after having our first in 2006, we received tremendous amount of interest on us doing this on a more regular basis. We listened. We are now holding these meet ups seasonal.
