Now THIS Is How You Do An Anniversary Special - Doctor Who: The Five(ish) Doctors [VIDEO]

The Five(ish) Doctors

If you only watched ‘An Adventure in Space and Time’ and ‘The Day of the Doctor’ anniversary special as part of your 50th anniversary of Doctor Who celebrations, then you're missing out. ‘The Five(ish) Doctors’ is thirty minutes of fun and delight spearheaded by Peter Davison which chronicles some of the past actors who played the Doctor in their efforts in being included in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special. It’s a real treat for long time fans, that also offers up some delights for new fans. The video is embedded below.

A Pond Farewell and a New Home for the Holidays [Infographic]

By now I will assume you have seen the latest episode of Doctor Who, The Angels Take Manhattan. If you have not, you may want to stop reading this until you have because this piece may spoil the episode for you. So consider this a spoiler alert (insert cloister bells here). 

In this next to last episode of the year 2012 we see the Ponds for the last time. Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) are doomed to live the rest of their lives in Earth's past without any further visits from the Doctor… Or we are led to believe at least. Though never say "never" in Doctor Who as it has been proven time and time again.

What did you think of their farewell?

It Was 25 Years Ago Today, The Gallifreyan Embassy Began…

It was a quarter of century ago today, as hard as it is for me believe, is when the Gallifreyan Embassy began. Unbeknownst at the time, it was the day after the Discovery Channel was launched. It was also the day after the launch of the space shuttle Discovery (STS-51-G) which marked the first Arab and Muslim in space (payload specialist Sultan bin Salman bin Adulaziz Al Saud). Yes, it was 1985. Ronald Reagan was in the White House, Commodore launches the Amiga personal computer while NeXT is founded by Steve Jobs after leaving Apple Computer.

Just two weeks before we went Back to the Future in the theaters, the Gallifreyan Embassy of Long Island officially began.

No sooner after completing my previous post about being on Cultdom Collective podcast, word came to me via @tardistavern that The Arc of Infinity episode we recorded last week has now been released.

Join the insanity with the insanely great hosts Steve Stacy and Sean Homrig of the TARDIS Tavern as we review 20th anniversary season kick off episode, Arc of Infinity with Peter Davison as the 5th Doctor.
