Party with Doctor Who Fans at the May Doctor Who: Podshock Meet Up on Second Life


Administrator - Posted on 12 May 2011

Yes, once again fans of Doctor Who, Torchwood, Sarah Jane Adventures and alike are coming together for what has become the legendary Doctor Who: Podshock seasonal meet ups on Second Life. It is all happening on Saturday, the 21st of May 2011.

Second Life Meet Up May 2011

Come and join Doctor Who: Podshock hosts, correspondents, friends, and listeners in celebrating the longest running science fiction series on television and you can do it from your pajamas if you like. 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 charge.

It's our winter Second Life meet up taking place on Saturday, 21 May 2011 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, 21st of May when we all come together once again for a Gallifreyan Embassy / Doctor Who: Podshock virtual meet up!

It doesn't matter where you live, it's like having your own TARDIS to ride in to 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.

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 @vic1st will be giving demonstrations of the TARDIS console. Victor may or may not be doing the usual "TARDIS Tour" at our meet up. (Stay tuned for a confirmation). There are various Doctor Who and Torchwood simulations on Second Life which many had not seen before because they did not want to leave the party. Tagging along on the "TARDIS Tours" is a great way to check them out. 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 Victor1st and HBK, for their continuing help and efforts putting together these amazing events for us on Second Life.
