Now in the iOS App Store is the Doctor Who: Sonic Screwdriver (Official) (for iOS 5 or later). Is if it wasn’t already overused on the television series, now it’s available on our iPhone. It includes four 3D models of sonic screwdrivers and thankfully not just limited the last seven years. It gives you a choice of two kinds of backgrounds for your sonic screwdriver. One is “transparent” (thanks to the rear camera) which emulates holding the actual sonic screwdriver as it will pick up whatever background you are pointing your iOS device towards (pretty nifty, huh?). Of course it has various sonic screwdriver sounds (it wouldn’t be “sonic” otherwise). You can even shake the 11th Doctor’s model to extend it. Plus it’s a flashlight app as well (for those with a camera flash and who haven’t updated to iOS 7 which now has it built-in the OS, may find this feature handy).

In 2010, Kitsune Books published the first volume of the Mythological Dimensions series, The Mythological Dimensions of Doctor Who. This was soon followed by the award winning The Mythological Dimensions of Neil Gaiman. We were to continue with the Mythological Dimensions series covering other areas of interest, however, in December 2012 Kitsune Books closed due to unforseen circumstances

L.I. Who guest Daphne Ashbrook on the big screen in Manhattan this Saturday at 1pm! The 1996 Doctor Who TV Movie with Paul McGann, Sylvester McCoy, Daphne Ashbrook, Yee Jee Tso, and Eric Roberts at the Paley Center For Media.
L.I. Who will host a Gallifreyan Embassy reunion panel plus a meet and greet of members past and present on Sunday afternoon November 10th 2013.
The final schedule isn't complete for the first Doctor Who convention on Long Island in over twenty years, but the reunion is slated to take place sometime that afternoon.
The very special guest of honor at L.I. Who will connect the convention with the beginning of Doctor Who history fifty years ago. It is the legendary director of the first episode "An Unearthly Child" and the missing historical classic "Marco Polo".
He is the subject of the upcoming BBC America co-production "An Adventure in Space and Time" written by Mark Gatiss. The drama chronicles the early days of making Doctor Who.
In his long career, Waris has worked with Hollywood legends like Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, and Bette Davis. He is a renowned storyteller and he makes a rare convention appearance at L.I. Who to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.
Sylvester McCoy is OUR Doctor this November 8-10th at L.I. Who!
The Seventh Doctor himself and the star of The Hobbit makes his return to Long Island for the first time since 1999.
He joins previously announced L.I. Who guests Daphne Ashbrook, Frazer Hines, and Ian McNeice. Tickets are on sale now.
Here's an update on the ongoing storm recovery:
I have a computer workstation setup now for me to record and edit while my place is being gutted out and made inhabitable again. I haven't tested everything out yet, but I suspect I should be able get work done. The biggest roadblock now is carving out the time that is required. Demolition of my place won't start until I clear everything out of it. So after fifty-some-odd days of clearing out waterlogged destroyed belongings and trapped sewage water in my place, now I have to clear out all the rest (the non-damaged stuff) so the floor, walls, ceiling, etc. all have to be gutted out and replaced. This task falls upon me. Since storage space is limited, I also need to take care (and time) to maximaze every inch while packing up. I also need to trash any remaining furniture that may have mold and trash belongings that I no longer want which I have no space for in storage.
I had hoped to have the episode 282 of Doctor Who: Podshock (recorded just prior to Super-storm Sandy) out by now. It is slowly going through post production now, but it is taking longer than I hoped because I am doing so many other things at the same time (relating to recovering from the storm, not to mention my sister being hospitalized).
It is my hope you all are well. As some of you may know over on my own blog "Comfy Chair" I started sometime ago an archive of a Doctor Who fanzine "Morbius." I have a huge interest in fanzines as a whole but especially those regarding Doctor Who & Tolkien, even more specific fanzines from groups in the New York area. The Doctor Who fanzine "Morbius" is not entirely from the NY area but it is where I got my start in collecting Doctor Who fanzines.
My post today is concerning the fanzine of the Gallifreyan Embassy "Ambassadors of Life," which ran until the mid-1990s if I am not mistaken. I have a few issues courtesy of Louis and Ken but wish to expand my personal archive. Ideally I would like to create a digital archive for my own collection and am not set to make it public unless I gain specific permission from Louis.
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?
