Paul Cornell has a series on his blog, The 12 Blogs of Christmas this holiday season.
In the latest entry, The 12 Blogs of Christmas: Eleven. Millennium Eve he features some of his fellow Doctor Who folk… included are Russell T Davies, Steven Moffat, Gary Russell, Murray Gold, James Moran, Noel Clarke, even a familiar name from Doctor Who: Podshock is there too.
In it, we are recounting what we were doing ten years ago as we rang in the new millennium.
Actually, it is quite humbling to be sharing such company on the same page. I thank Paul, he is a lovely person and friend. As I said in my piece included in Paul's blog, take nothing for granted.
The animated Doctor Who adventure, Dreamland starring David Tennant as the 10th Doctor will be shown daily starting on Saturday, the 21st of November 2009. The six episode animated series will be shown on the BBC Red Button and the Doctor Who website (most likely locked down to UK visitors only unfortunately).
Being billed as "Doctor Who meets a 50's monster B-movie," the mini series is written by Phil Ford and takes place in the USA (ironically as of yet there has been no announced dates or releases for US fans for this animated series), Area 51 (in Nevada) known for its alien lore. The Doctor finds himself in Dreamland, a secret base in the US which leads him on a mission to rescue Rivesh Mantilax from the threat of the Viperox as well as the American military of course.

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).
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!
