The Doctor regenerates on the way to Icon 31, rare Paul McGann appearance in New York

Paul McGann and Daphne Ashbrook
An unexpected change in the filming schedule for The Hobbit  means that Sylvester McCoy will no longer be able to attend for I-CON 31. But Icon quickly announced that Paul McGann will be joining them instead.

This is a very rare appearance by the actor that portrays the Eighth Doctor on screen and in the Big Finish audio adventures. He joins previously annouced guest and co-star Daphne Ashbrook.

There is a video message on YouTube explaining the change:

New York Comic Con is This Weekend at the Javits Center in NYC [VIDEO]

New York Comic Con is here again! October 13-16th at the Javits Center in New York. It's the largest east coast popular culture convention. Each year, it is growing in size and this year is no exception.

Get Your Geek On!

We have been attending each year and last year we recorded an episode of Doctor Who: Podshock live at the event to a standing room only audience with special guest Tony Lee of IDW Publishing (Doctor Who ongoing comic book series). You can listen to our live show from 2010 here: Doctor Who: Podshock 225. We would had done another live show this year at the event, but unfortunately, there isn't a Doctor Who guest there this year. Last year, Alien Entertainment brought over Daphne Ashbrook (Grace from the 1996 TV movie). Word is this year they are bringing Ian McNeice (Churchill) to their booth. You may recall, we interviewed McNeice earlier this year live on stage at Gallifrey One (see Doctor Who: Podshock 240.

Here is a little taste of New York Comic Con in this video from last year (2010):

An Article About Last Tuesday's Gallifreyan Embassy 25th Anniversary Event

Daphne Ashbrook signing autographs at our event. #DoctorWho #Podshock

A heads up for those may not have caught the tweets from myself as well as @GEmbassy and @Podshock that there's another article in the Mineola Patch about our most recent 25th anniversary event for the Gallifreyan Embassy which was held last Tuesday at Eleanor Rigby's in Mineola, NY.

'Doctor Who' Actress Visits Mineola for Fan Club’s 25th Anniversary - Mineola, NY Patch:

"'What started in 1985 with newsletters and meetings, in 2010 is now an online presence like the website or podcasts and things,' Louis Trapani told fellow fans of the 40-plus year British sci-fi series 'Doctor Who' gathered at Eleanor Rigby's Tuesday night. 'But there's still nothing better than good old-fashioned people getting together and having a good time and we have a great community of Doctor Who fans on Long Island.'

Along with fellow fan Ken Deep, Trapani is head of the 'Gallifreyan Embassy,' billed as the largest 'Doctor Who' fan club on Long Island, and which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Deep said that it was 'fitting' that the group was in Mineola because club member Beth Trekman had been working at the Mineola post office where the original club newsletters were mailed. 'You used to see Mineola as our paid postage meter-thingy from the post office,' Deep said. 'Mineola has a special place in our hearts.'

Trapani said he decided to start a 'Doctor Who' fan club on Long Island in 1985 'since there was nothing there at that time, (and) since there was nothing there I said 'hey, I'll start it' and little did I know 25 years later they're still talking about it.'"

Doctor Who - The Movie: Special Edition DVD Coming to North America February 2011

Doctor Who 1996 region 1 DVD

As we previously announced, the Doctor Who 1996 Movie will finally be released as a region 1 DVD in North America. It has long been available on region 2 (I had my copy for some time now), it has been tied up in release rights issues between the studios involved (BBC, Fox, Universal) for a region 1 DVD release since the movie first aired.

We were pleased to report that it would finally be coming to region 1 with the recent revisiting of the DVD (a new re-release edition). Up until now, we didn't have a release date other than 2011 for this 8th Doctor adventure starring Paul McGann and Daphne Ashbrook. Now according to tvshowsondvd.com, BBC and Warner Home Video have announced that it will be released on February 8th as a 2-disc set titled, 'Doctor Who - The Movie: Special Edition.'

It coincides with the release of another 2-disc set 3rd Doctor story, 'The Mutants' starring Jon Pertwee as the Doctor and Katy Manning as Jo Grant on DVD.
