Dancing TARDIS, Par for the Course at Gallifrey
This video came my way courtesy of our own Tara Wheeler who is actually in this video. No, she is not the one dancing, nor is that her TARDIS which is dancing, but she and her TARDIS are there nonetheless. She quickly takes to safety in her TARDIS when the dancing one enters the room at Gallifrey 20 (February 2009). I know that is what I would had done as well.
It is all part of the fun at a Doctor Who convention, in particular Gallifrey One. This video captures some of the fun and spirit of the convention. A place where you can obviously mention Doctor Who without getting dumbfounded looks or having to explain what it is or worry that the person you are speaking to is going to write you off simply as a pencil-neck geek (they may still do that anyway, but in a good way -- in a kindred spirit kind of way).
Gallifrey One takes place every year in Los Angeles. It's an annual prilgrimage for many Doctor Who fans traveling to it each year from all corners of the world. It has been our privilege and honour to be there the last couple years recording Doctor Who: Podshock live on stage and we are delighted to be have been asked to return again next year at Gallifrey 2010 - Blackjack 21.
The date has been pushed back a week to February 26-28 for 2010. See details here concerning the date change. Get your tickets and enjoy the party. Last February, attendance records were broken for the event, I suspect the same will be true for next year.
