Festival-runner Ken hosting the TRIVIA OF RASSILON (say it in a slow, booming voice).
The Guardians Time Lord costume is a hit, in spite of a slight wardrobe malfunction…
…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…
Shhhhh! Here are links–with photos–to the spoilers I put in the news:
Check out the June 25 post (photo of Jodie with a new sonic)
And check here for photos (from Spain?)
Oops!–got busy putting the news together for the Gallifrey Guardian (found some juicy spoilers) and forgot to blog this week. Here’s a quickie:
This was going to be another post about how I see Doctor Who connections everywhere, ’cause I spotted the Doctor’s Daughter and Rory’s Dad in a BBC Mystery. Then the channel started glitching and I had to jiggle the antenna (yes, I still use an antenna). As usual, the picture cleared up as soon as I touched the pole holding it, and went all squiggly when I stepped away. Luckily, a prop brought back after Time Lord Fest was nearby, which made a fine replacement.
Time Lord Fest was a blast, and we were able to bring almost all our ‘stuff’–thanks Ken!
We set up games for the event: Bowling for Daleks, DW Trivia Dominoes, Cyberdarts, Pin the Tail on K-9, and DW Pictionary (TARDIS Console Beanbag Toss not pictured).
The Club table, loaded with freebies, was next to our merchandise table guarded by the Delegate from Alpha Centauri.
Alpha Centauri was very popular!
…to make up for missing last week.
First, more evidence of my Doctor Who addiction: seeing reminders of the show everywhere.
I took my granddaughter to see “Sherlock Gnomes” and noticed
1) a container holding the heroes was from the ‘Moffat’ company and
2) Dan Starkey’s name was in the credits.
