As previously announced, our Second Life meet ups are now seasonal. We will be holding them on a regular basis. Last month, we had our very successful Second Second Life Meet Up which took place after a long gap without any. Victor1st of the land of Katrina on Second Life prepared a video that introduced Doctor Who fans to the Doctor Who Experience on Second Life. He had also created a new one specifically for those attending our meet up.
Although our Second Second Life Meet Up was last month, this video still serves as a good introduction to Second Life for our upcoming meet ups. Our next will be in August. We thank Victor for making this greeting and tour for those attending our meet ups there.
"I've come to help. I'm the Doctor."

June marks our 24th anniversary! Join us as we celebrate it at a special joint meet up with DWNY on Monday, 15th of June 2009 at 7pm at the Peculier Pub in New York City. It is not the first time we will be joining DWNY at a meet up at the Peculier Pub. If you attended before, you know what a fantastic group DWNY is and how wonderful their meet ups are on a monthly basis. This one will be no exception.
Thanks to the enormous success of our Second Second Life Meet Up in May, we had an overwhelming amount of requests at the event for us to do it on a more regular basis. To that end, we will be holding Doctor Who: Podshock / Gallifreyan Embassy Second Life Meet Ups now regularly.
Second Life is a virtual 3D environment that enables club members, listeners, website visitors, and all Doctor Who fans to come together to meet up, talk, dance, hang out, party, etc. no matter where you live. All that is needed is broadband internet access and the free Second Life client software (and a computer capable of running it). It breaks down the geographic barriers and make it easy for us to connect. It's the next best thing to being there in person.
With our new website (3.0), comes a new feature of blogs. It basically means in addition to news and other postings featured on our site, we will have regular contributors posting blog entries here as well relating to all things Doctor Who including the spin-offs of it.
Currently, the bloggers will be limited to staff and crew of the website and Doctor Who: Podshock, but will also feature other writers. One of which you will know from our podcast, but perhaps more so from his weekly This Week in Doctor Who (TWIDW) listings on Outpost Gallifrey and the TWIDW Yahoo Group, we welcome Benjamin Elliott who will be posting This Week in Doctor Who here as a regular blog.
The Gallifreyan Embassy would usually take WLIW (the Long Island PBS station that showed Doctor Who at the time) by storm during their pledge drives volunteering during their British science-fiction line up nights. Here is the gang back in the '80s in this classic photo by Keith. From left to right is Louis, Andrea, Amy, Pete "Bug", Denise, Al (sitting in front on phone), Ken, Brian (standing behind Ken), PJ, Rob (all the way in the back), Tim (front standing), and Keith himself (standing). Thank you Keith for allowing us to share this photo.
