Random News and Sillysparrowness Builds a TARDIS

Posted by: Whochick

Hello again. I’ve been clearing out my email and I’ve discovered a whole bunch of newsbytes that we’ve never gotten around to posting here. (Often with hat tips to Blastr and the gang at ESO.) So…I thought I’d post them. Most recent will be at the top, so when you reach the stuff you’ve already seen, just skip right down to Sillysparrowness and the amazing TARDIS that she built. Alright?

Standby for a NewsDump!

And Finally:

Earth Station One: Episode 94

Posted by: Whochick

Earth Station One - Podcast #94

This time around Calliope guested on the ESO podcast without Scott…but only because he was on a boat at the time. Details. The topic this time around is Crossovers in TV, Films, books, comics…pretty much anything, really. As a special treat, if you make it all the way to the end of the podcast, you can listen to the bloopers. These include when Calliope’s computer decided to freak out and make her sound like a Dalek. Well, maybe a Dalek swearing in Kaled…


Why not pop over and download Earth Station One: Episode 94 and listen to the discussion. Also, if you have a favorite crossover, you should comment and let them know.

Earth Station One: Episode 88

Posted by: Whochick

Earth Station One - Podcast #88

Once again Scott and Calliope prove that they like talking about Doctor Who a bit too much by guesting upon the Earth Station One podcast to talk about the last Fifth Doctor story – Caves of Androzani. Okay, really, they’d guest on the ESO podcast for any reason, as it’s always a good time, but this time…Classic Who. As you can see below, neither of them had to deal with the Geek Seat this time, as they’ve already done it. So there.


Why not pop over and download Earth Station One: Episode 88 and listen to the discussion. Also, if you have a geek gift to add to the list, be sure to let them know.

Earth Station One: Episode 80

Posted by: Whochick

Earth Station One - Podcast #80

Apparently, Scott and I like talking about Doctor Who so much, that we guested on the Earth Station One podcast to do it there, too. The table of contents for episode 80 is listed below if you want to skip past me making a fool of myself in the geek seat, for example. Oh! And one thing I have been compelled asked to mention: The Lion King is my husband’s favorite Animated film, rather than his favorite overall. Just FYI.


So, why not join us for a discussion of the final episode, a look at the season arc, and a bit of forecasting? How do you think the story will continue? Will the Doctor be able to stay hidden? Who will be the new companion? I guess we’ll have to wait and see (unless you have a TARDIS handy.)

Elisabeth Sladen Tribute

Posted by: Dr. Geek

It is hard to come up with a simple tribute to Elisabeth Sladen. Her most famous character of Sarah Jane Smith meant so much to many different parts of Who fandom. As most know, Sarah Jame started with the 3rd Doctor, and stayed for quite a while with the 4th Doctor. In fact, it is my opinion that in some ways the relationship she had with The Doctor was the template upon which RTD used to create Rose. Sure everyone talks about the love The Doctor had for Rose, or that Martha had for The Doctor, but you can see the beginnings of all that with Sarah Jane and The Doctor.

I was so glad to see Sarah Jane show up in School Reunion. It was at that point that to me, New Who became just Who. It is a shame that Elisabeth Sladen’s own series took so long to develop. While I enjoyed The Sarah Jane Adventures, it was not till recently that I thought the stories were developing to a level of sophistication worthy of her character and Elisabeth Sladen’s talents.

This actress and her popular character will be missed. According to Doctor Who Magazine, the BBC has confirmed that there will be a dedication to Elisabeth Sladen at the start of Saturday’s new episode of Doctor Who. Also, there will be a 15-minute programme ‘My Sarah Jane: A Tribute to Elisabeth Sladen’ at 18:45 on CBBC on Saturday, after Doctor Who.

Here are some fan tributes from around the net. What is your favorite memories of Sarah Jane Smith?

Who Tours

Posted by: Dr. Geek

So how many of you would travel to Europe just to go on a tour of locations used in Doctor Who? Well, okay, I would, but I have a Ph.D. in geekness :) Recently I found a few articles concerning two different tours. Check them out here and here.

Some day I hope to go on one of these or a similar tour. The closest I ever came to such a tour was when I spent the day in Paris going to a few locations used in Highlander the TV series. I know a few people who have gone to Canada for a Due South / Forever Knight tour which sounded like a whole lot of fun.

What Doctor Who location would you want to visit? I wonder how many people are caught standing on the secret entrance to the Torchwood Hub?

Day 21: Link Dump

Posted by: Whochick

Day 21: Link Dump

It’s time to clear out my browser tabs again. Stand by:

  • Swashbuckling spoilers can be found here.
  • News from the official site about casting and such – go here. I had the links sitting in my tabs…and they got too old. There’s one character returning that I shall be very interested to see.
  • Have you seen the new coat that the Doctor has next season?
  • Okay. I know that this isn’t really Doctor Who news specifically, but as at least one Doctor Who actor will be in The Hobbit, you may wish to check out the official Hobbit Blog – http://www.thehobbitblog.com/.
  • Gareth Roberts is reportedly writing a novelization of Shada. (I wonder how many bits in his book will look like Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, as that’s where Douglas Adams recycled some of his material.)

Day…??? 28?: Random Links and Such

Posted by: Whochick

Stand by for a Linkapalooza:

  • Are you familiar with Teefury? They offer a t-shirt design for one day only, and have a new design each day. Often they are fandom-related, as is the case currently. You might wish to pop by and take a look periodically.
  • Mars has been experiencing some erosion. Doctor? Don’t you think it’s best to leave Mars alone at this point?
  • Do you remember those casting rumors that had David Tennant playing a part in The Hobbit? Well, while I think it’s currently unlikely as he’s doing a play with Catherine Tate…the IMDB still has the rumor listed. So…who knows?
  • Everything you need to know about Doctor Who on a single page, you can see here.
  • Blastr brings us a TARDIS infographic here. (I wish I could draw…)
  • And, finally, just in case you’re as behind on Torchwood news as I am, check out some set photos here and here.

Tab Dump: News and Notes

Posted by: Whochick

Okay, some of this news is very new…and some of it has been kicking around in tabs on my browser for a while now, but hasn’t been mentioned here yet. (At least, as far as I’ve noticed.) So, go ahead and get yourself settled with a nice cup of tea. This may take a while to get through.

Ready?
