Get a Life! Join Us on Second Life Celebrating 47 Years of Doctor Who!


Administrator - Posted on 14 November 2010

It's that time again when Doctor Who, Torchwood, Sarah Jane Adventures fans come together under one virtual sky at what has become the legendary Doctor Who: Podshock meet ups on Second Life.

The last events we held on Second Life were to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy and the 5th anniversary of Doctor Who: Podshock. This time we are coming together to celebrate 47 years of Doctor Who itself! Yes, it is the anniversary of Doctor Who!

Come and join Doctor Who: Podshock hosts, correspondents, friends, and listeners in celebrating 47 years of the longest running science fiction series on television all without leaving the comfort of your home!

Second Life Meet Up November 2010

There are no secret locations or handshakes needed. No long car or train rides. No worrying about parking or finding a seat. No worrying about what to wear (at least not in the physical sense). No worrying about travel fares, dinner checks, tips, or who paid for the last round. Just kick back in front of your computer with your favourite beverage and/or snack and join other Doctor Who, Torchwood, and alike fans coming together on Second Life. All at no extra cost to you.

It's our summer Second Life meet up taking place on Saturday, 20 November 2010 and what better way to celebrate Doctor Who's anniversary. Come together with other Doctor Who and Torchwood fans no matter where you are geographically located, all you need is broadband internet and a computer capable of running the free Second Life software.

Our seasonal meet ups are a fun and fantastic way to connect with other fans without even leaving the comfort of your own home. Each meet up has been grown larger and larger.

Join us on Saturday, 20th of November when we all come together once again for a Gallifreyan Embassy / Doctor Who: Podshock virtual meet up!

It doesn't matter where you live, there are no flights to book, no train tickets to buy, no long car trips to endure… but there are TARDIS' to ride in Second Life! All you need is a broadband internet connection and reasonably current computer (Mac or Windows) to join us. The Second Life software is free to download and use.

Come and meet other fans like yourself on 20 November 2010. Stop by any time you like that day, though you will not want to miss the special events taking place that day starting at 1pm SLT (Second Life Time = Pacific time in the US) when Victor1st will be giving demonstrations of the TARDIS console. There are various Doctor Who and Torchwood simulations which many had not seen last time because they did not want to leave the party. So before the DJ (once again the fantastic music will be provided by the talented Edward Pearse (yet to be confirmed at this time) from 3-6pm SLT) and party begins, you now will have a chance to check out the various incarnations of the TARDIS console room, peruse the virtual Doctor Who museum, and more. Perhaps even visit the Torchwood Hub.

Then at 3pm to 6pm SLT the DJ and dancing begins. Join the fun.. it doesn't matter if you can dance in your first life or not, you will be able to do so in Second Life. Don't be shy, meet up with other Doctor Who: Podshock listeners, hosts, correspondents, regular contributors, Gallifreyan Embassy members, and Doctor Who and Torchwood fans.

It takes place in Katrina (Cardiff and the Doctor Who Experience) on Second Life like last time (clicking on the linked Katrina name will bring you to the location in Second Life). See the video below of Victor1st giving an introduction to Second Life and the land of Katrina.

(You will need to use the Second Life client software available free for Mac or Windows. Although not required, a microphone and headphones helps as you can speak and interact with others without having to type things out).

Once again we thank Terry Lightfoot and Nik Hewitt along with Victor1st and HBK, for their continuing collective help and efforts putting together these amazing events for us on Second Life.

This FREE event is brought to you by Podshock Supporting Subscribers. Please help us continue to bring you events like this one and others by becoming a supporting subscriber. Alternatively, please feel free to make a donation in any amount you like.
