The White Robot Does Exist!

You may have seen the White Robot at a Doctor Who conventions, but does the White Robot really exist? Now there is an answer this question. Doctor Who: Podshock special correspondent, Billy Davis constructed his classic White Robot costume as a nod to the 1968 Patrick Troughton story, The Mind Robber. It has become a popular attraction recently at select conventions such as Chicago TARDIS and Gallifrey 2009.

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.

Who York Events

Thanks for the welcome to the blog so far! This installment is a little bit more newsy than opinion - but rest assured I have more opinions to come!

 

Listeners to Podshock episode 157 will hear Jarrod Cooper, the chairman of the Hurricane Who convention (http://hurricanewho.com) taking place in Orlando, Florida from Friday October 30 - Sunday November 1 2009, mention a new endeavour taking place in New York City associated with DWNY - Who York.

Plans are still being made and will be revealed here shortly, but our first event is expected to be in November, 2009. If you bookmark http://whoyork.com you will see that we are already putting some preparations in place.

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! Part Two

After the Doctor Who panel ended, I hauled butt over to the Sails Pavillion, where my Darlng Husband had run through multiple lines to get me a ticket for the autograph session and saved me a place in line.

There were wild rumors that David Tennant would take part in this session and Murray Gold had hinted on Twitter that he might also take part in it.

But no.  Euros Lyn, Julie Gardner and Russell T. came in after about an hour's wait.

Thanks to the DH, I was right up in front of the line and had a moment or two to trade comments with RTD.

Of course, I have my own agenda, and asked him, as he'd just claimed that Four was *his* Doctor, why the BBC no longer distributes Doctor Who Scarf patterns.

He'd had no idea and offered to look into it.  I gave him my card.

Hand-Held "Corrected" Video of the 'End of Time' Promo

This promo for the End of Time presented at San Diego Comic Con this past weekend was shot by someone in the audience. The hand-held shaky video uploaded to YouTube by safia43 was then stabilized and cleaned up a bit by colonelbarker to the give you what you see here below. It features an element that would had been considered a spoiler before Comic Con, but now is not as the BBC has already announced it. Hopefully a better version of this promo will become available on the net soon, in the meantime, here below is probably the best version of it on YouTube (catch it while you can).

Nothing Major Announced at SDCC So Far

No movie or other big news coming out of San Diego Comic Con 2009 relating to Doctor Who to report as of yet. Stay tuned to the upcoming Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 157 in which we have quasi-live coverage with our correspondent Tara Wheeler of the events taking place today at the SDCC Doctor Who panel with David Tennant, Russell T Davies, and Julie Gardner and more.

With that said, it is still a very exciting convention with the guests on hand. We will have plenty to report in the next Doctor Who: Podshock.

David Tennant and John Barrowman Kiss at SDCC

Correspondent Tara Wheeler on assignment attending San Diego Comic Con informed us of this little intimate moment with David Tennant and John Barrowman as they introduce the Doctor Who/Torchwood programming taking place at the convention.

Friday at the Con

Dalek GirlDalek GirlToday was one long slog in the mud waiting for Sunday.

I did see Robert Downy Jr, Denzel Washington, Hayao Miyazaki, Cameron Diaz, John Lasseter and Gary Oldman, so it wasn't a complete loss.

No new Doctor Who news or rumors to report.

I did see a Dalek Girl

Thursday at the Con

Today I spent a good bit of the day just roaming, looking over as much of the Con as I could get access to.

I wore my new fedora hat and one of my Season Fourteen scarves.

Ballroom 20, where the Doctor Who and Torchwood panels will be held on Sunday, has changed the entrance to the bay side of the convention hall.

I'm going to the Hayao Miyazaki panel tomorrow morning, so I'll use that as a dress rehersal for Sunday.

I walked the Exhibit floor for several hours, meeting up with several friends from Gallifrey One.

The folks at BBC America were kind enough to tell me that David Tennant was due to fly into Los Angeles, where he was to attend several meetings and then come on down to San Diego Comic Con.
