Celebrating Time And Relative Dimensions In Space!
Last week I had the privilege of being on and joining my fellow co-host James Naughton on the Cultdom Collective podcast. The episode is a Gallifrey One preview show. Yes, the Doctor Who convention is a year away now at this point, my friends at Cultdom are getting a head start for those planning on attending next February in Los Angeles, CA.
Originally all I had done was record a short comment that was to be played on the show with James. Then the scheduling gods were shinning upon us, because they were recording at a time when I was able to join in on the fun, unbeknownst to James. They were playing my pre-recorded clip I made about meeting James in person for the first time at Gallifrey 20 when suddenly I was on the show myself.

Sylvester played the Doctor on BBC1 from 1987-1989 and reprised the role in the 1996 TV movie, when he regenerated into the 8th Doctor, played by Paul McGann! Sylvester is a fabulous entertainer and always full of wonderful stories, so the evening should be a lot of fun! We'll have interviews, signings and more!

This Week In Doctor Who

by Benjamin F. Elliott
Note - I am working on some major adjustments to the column. Pardon the dust. PBS stations are in the section marked This Week In Doctor Who PBS (the Sarah Jane listings are moving in with PBS next week - expect a name change). Today Sarah Jane and K-9 listings are together as This Week In Doctor Who Spinoffs - next week that section becomes This Week In Doctor Who - Unlicensed, covering the K-9 listings and the long awaited return of the podcasting section. Torchwood listings are in Torchwood This Week.
The 11th Doctor Matt Smith made an appearance on the late night "Jonathan Ross" Show, Showing his new Sonic Screwdriver among things. He alaso tried to give a Discription of the interior of the Tardis with out giving anything away. See Clip below
