Busy cooking–no time–here’s a pic:
More details on the party, as we have added auction items, including:
Doctor Who DVD Series 7, part 1
Doctor Who tote bag
Doctor Who Christmas Ornaments – 11th Doctor and Sonic Screwdriver
Join us for Doctor Who viewing, trivia, games, chat, food, etc. There will be a book/magazine/comics sale as well as the auction. Stop by for an hour, or the weekend (activities generally spill over into Sunday), and be sure to get your photo in the classic TARDIS Console room with Daleks and the Delegate from Alpha Centauri, or in front of the Exploding TARDIS, or the Clara Memorial TARDIS (add your own grafitti)!
Just a few words tonight, as I am still busy party planning, although I did take some time to read the latest Gallifrey Guardian newsletter (great job, Editor Bob!). And a quick visit to the Guardians’ website gave me a chance to peruse GoG’s Wholiday Pages–our version of an Advent Calendar (thanks, Webmaster Arthur!).
If you want to know what to expect from a Guardian Wholiday Party, check out my posts from December of 2017. You will see puzzles and crafts, games, themed cakes, auction items, costumes and props for photo ops, and more. Want your picture in front of the exploding TARDIS? Drop by!
We also have a trivia contest, play party games, and smash a piñata. New crafts are added often, including this coloring page of a character from a previous Doctor Who Christmas episode.
Apologies, for not getting back to you in November, but my busy work season was extended due to a December 4 run-off.
This week will be all about prepping for the Guardians of Gallifrey’s annual Wholiday Party, which is much like our June Anniversary Party (see June 1st post), but with the addition of our elections, an auction, and a piñata!
If you have suggestions for a theme (besides Doctor Who and the Holiday, that is), please send them. I usually have an idea for the cake and piñata by now, but having just caught up with this season (told you I was working), inspiration has yet to strike.
As my work schedule is heating up, the GoG Blog will be taking a break until November. If you are new to these pages, please enjoy our previous posts and be sure to check out the Classic and New Series Guardian pages.

…the front page of the July 12 Entertainment Weekly, that is. Not only did she make the cover of the Comic-Con preview issue, inside was a two-page photo and a sizable article on Doctor Who.
From IMDB by way of The Prydonian Renegade, newsletter of the Prydonians of Prynceton, who exchange with our Club:
Episode One “The Woman in Blue” – Plot: “A newly regenerated Doctor falls from the TARDIS into a junkyard. She is spotted by a man called Graham who comes to help her. We meet the Doctor’s brand new companions Graham, Yasmin (Graham’s daughter) and Ryan (Yasmin’s boyfriend) and they have a huge decision to make.” The episode is written by Chris Chibnall and features Hazel Roberts as Sissy Robert, Train Driver. The episode runs one hour; all other episodes are listed as 45 minutes. My pet theory is that the Woman in Blue refers to the female Doctor in the TARDIS, not a policewoman.
Episode Three was written by Rona Munro. Judging by the cast, this would be the (possibly two-part) story about Rosa Parks. Richard Lothian appears as Mr. Steel, David Rubin as Raymond Parks, and Mark Williams as the Bus Driver, a role he repeats in Episode Four. Episode Four was written by Toby Whithouse, and features Adam Darlington as a Passerby.
Episode Five was written by Jane Espenson, Seven by Anthony Horowitz, and Eight by Andrew Kreisberg.
Episodes Two, Six, Nine, and Ten were written by Chris Chibnall. In Episode Ten, Alan Cumming joins the cast as King James, and Kevin Hudson as a Villager.
Next week, more photos from Time Lord Fest…
