Would be excess GG news, but…

…everything I sent to the Editor made it into the newsletter! In lieu of posting (non-existent) excess news, I’ve chosen several articles from the Gallifrey Guardian that  provide fans with stuff to do at home, to continue to encourage social distancing:

As many people currently are keeping in touch online, the BBC has provided a selection of over 100 empty set images from the BBC Archive for fans to use as their background image in video conferencing applications. The list includes TARDIS console room sets from Doctor Who: two variations from The Masque of Mandragora, one each circa 1980 and 1983, and two angles of 2019’s set. To access them, go to the science fiction portion of the archive at https://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/empty_sets_science_fiction/zhj7mfr

Emily Cook of DWM organized a live-Tweet watch-along of An Adventure in Space and Time on May 23rd. It was preceded by a special presentation of a new short adventure called Doctors Assemble! featuring Doctors One through Thirteen, plus the War Doctor. David Bradley voiced the First Doctor, with the other Doctors portrayed by a team of nine voice impressionists. The visual element of the webcast appears as a “group chat” and consists of CGI shots of the Doctor’s TARDIS, with pictures on the scanner. You can access the video on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=886&v=26UFq8RGVOs&feature=emb_title

The TARDIS Fandom website has fantastic lists explaining all the references in the video, and lots of other Doctor Who stuff, too—worth checking out! https://tardis.fandom.com/wiki/Doctors_Assemble!_(webcast)

The Homemade Who project launched last month was extended to the end of May, to give more fans the opportunity to recreate their favorite moments from Doctor Who, using whatever they could find in their house. Entries were sent in from England, Australia, France, Luxembourg, Argentina, Wales, Germany, Italy, the Philippines, the USA, and New Zealand! A compilation video featuring every clip sent in so far can be found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYgLkAY9jiQ or you can watch all the complete clips on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/homemade.who/
