A Special Anniversary Event?

Gallifreyan Embassy's 2nd Anniversary Cake

As you already know if you read my previous post (It Was 25 Years Ago Today…), that today marks the 25th anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy.

Over the past few months we have been discussing having some sort of special anniversary event to mark the occasion this year. You may remember last year we held an event in Manhattan for our 24th anniversary in which we paired up with a monthly DWNY meet up and brought the lovely Daphne Ashbrook (Dr. Grace Holloway from the 1996 Doctor Who movie) to the event. See Happy Anniversary to Us… for further details.

We would like to something special for our 25th as well. It would be an event in the NY area, perhaps on Long Island as that is where it all began, yet still be accessible to our friends in NYC. Maybe a dinner event? Would you be interested in attending?

A Who York Evening… with Louise Jameson (Leela)!

A few months ago, you may have read my post regarding Who York, and some of DWNY's exciting plans to create Doctor Who events and conventions in New York City. Well, the first of those plans has now come to fruition, with the announcement of the first Who York Event - A Who York Evening with..... Louise Jameson, who played Leela with the 4th Doctor.

Barnaby Edwards, Writer

Barnaby is a British ex-pat, living in New York City. He runs the Doctor Who New York (DWNY) fan group, which you can find on the web at dwny.org. The group, which numbers in the hundreds now, holds monthly Pub Meets at Peculier Pub in Greenwich Village (usually on the 2nd Wednesday of each month - but it does vary - check here for dates and times of upcoming events), and monthly video meets - either at member's homes, or for special occasions at Professor Thom's, near Union Square! DWNY also has a small scale podcast, which does Doctor Who themed versions of classic British game shows - most notably "Just a DWNY Minute". You can download it here.

Both are relaxing at the August 2009 DWNY Meet Up at the Peculier Pub.

You too now can be the White Robot with a shirt like this one.

DWNY Presents Gary Russell with his own Mug

We had the privilege of sitting down with Gary Russell for an indepth interview before joining the DWNY Meet Up on Wednesday, the 19th of August 2009 at the Peculier Pub in Manhattan. It was there that Gary was finally presented with his own DWNY mug. Look forward to our interview with Gary Russell in future episodes of Doctor Who: Podshock. In the meantime, here is a video of Gary being presented with his own DWNY mug (dark grainy video shot in the pub using an iPhone 3GS).

The Saga of Gary Russell and his DWNY Mug!

So on listening to Doctor Who: Podshock episode 159, the story was once again told of Gary Russell and his DWNY mug! Or rather the lack thereof! And I feel compelled to set the record straight! And where better than my blog on this very website!

I started running the Doctor Who New York (DWNY) group (on the web at http://dwny.org) last year, taking it over from a very dear friend who had built up the group since its inception in 2005, but for whom work was starting to take up too much time to keep it all going. Prior to this "regeneration", Gary had joined us at one of our meetups – the viewing of the 2007 Christmas Special Voyage of the Damned”. Before I took over, for those of you following along at home!

Happy Anniversary to Us! 24 Years of Time and Space.

It was 24 years ago today, that the Gallifreyan Embassy was founded. It was a different world at that time. The current Doctor was Colin Baker. His stories had just started to make their way to the States. Doctor Who was being shown across the country in the US via local PBS stations. There was no BBC America, no Sci-Fi Channel (or "Syfy"), there wasn't even the World Wide Web then. There were conventions, both dedicated Doctor Who conventions and science fiction conventions with Doctor Who guests and many fans looking to meet and feed their addiction in between cons.

Tara Takes a Knitting Break

Tara Takes a Knitting Break

For who have the urge to smoke, will step outside to take "a cigarette break" -- for Tara Wheeler, that translates to an urge to knit. Here she is outside the pub at the DWNY and Gallifreyan Embassy joint meet up on June 15, 2009 to take a knitting break. This is how scarves are made. (Photo by Louis Trapani taken with a 1st gen iPhone)
