This past Saturday, the 21st of August 2010 was not only our seasonal meet up on Second Life, it also marked the 5th anniversary of the Doctor Who podcast, Doctor Who: Podshock. (We used our last meet up last May to mark the 25th anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy).
People from all corners of the world came together to have fun and to meet Doctor Who: Podshock hosts, correspondents, supporters, and other Doctor Who fans. As usual, Victor led the much anticipated TARDIS tours, a staple of our meet ups on Second Life in which he takes a TARDIS load of people to other Doctor Who themed areas of Second Life. This time, he even allowed me to pilot a Jon Pertwee style TARDIS for one trip. It was very exciting indeed.
The TARDIS Tours took us to Who Island which had a replica of Stonehenge with 'underhenge' which we discovered the Pandorica (and it opened)! We also got to see the console room seen in this year's 'The Lodger' episode and as always the tour concluded in the Doctor Who Museum. The virtual museum chronicles all of Doctor Who throughout its long history.
Below is a new general introduction video to The Doctor Who Experience on Second Life. It is the area we hold our seasonal Doctor Who: Podshock / Gallifreyan Embassy Meet Ups (we have one coming up next Saturday, the 21st of August 2010 by the way, see: Join Us in Celebrating 5 Years of Doctor Who: Podshock Wherever You Are! for more information). If you already attended our meet ups there or have seen the intro video Victor made specifically for our upcoming meet up (see: New Intro Video for Upcoming Doctor Who / Gallifreyan Embassy Meet Up on Second Life), then this video may be old hat for you. If you are brand new to Second Life and The Doctor Who Experience, then this video can be helpful to you. Remember you can enjoy The Doctor Who Experience anytime you like, not just during our meet ups there.
Victor1st was kind enough to create an updated video introduction to our upcoming Doctor Who: Podshock / Gallifreyan Embassy Meet Up on Second Life on Saturday, the 21st of August. See details here: Join Us in Celebrating 5 Years of Doctor Who: Podshock Wherever You Are! We hope to see you there celebrating 5 years of Doctor Who: Podshock!
