|“Morgus! You stinking offal! Look at me!”
Yes, a day long anticipated by the Three Who Rule Has finally arrived as they were privileged to tackle the all-time classic The Caves of Androzani as a commentary. While they had long feared such a task would devolve into silent slack jawed amazement, they did their damnedest to inform and entertain to the standard being played out on screen. There’s also morsels of news regarding cinema screenings and other such frippery, but c’mon! Caves! Yeah!
– Series 8…New Photos!
|The second guest update for the 2015 edition of Gallifrey One has been announced, and there are some exciting names to talk about! Read on!|
|Burn Gorman is making his first appearance at Gallifrey One, taking time away from a busy career on the small screen and the silver screen to join us in Los Angeles. Known in the Doctor Who universe for his role as Owen Harper in “Torchwood”, Burn has gone on to appear in notable roles in Game of Thrones and Pacific Rim.|
|Neve McIntosh has become a quick fan favourite at conventions, where she unleashes her bubbly personality that is usually hidden behind layers of latex and make-up in her role as Vastra, one of the semi-regular Paternoster Gang who will be making a return appearance in the upcoming Series 8 premiere “Deep Breath”. Neve first appeared at Gallifrey One in 2013.|
|Jacqueline King played the disappointed mother to Catherine Tate’s underachieving Donna Noble in the 2006 Christmas Special “The Runaway Bride”. Jacqueline would reprise the role in Series 4 and 2009-10′s “The End of Time”. 2015 will see the first appearance at Gallifrey One for Jacqueline.|
|Mark Sheppard has become a cherished regular at Gallifrey One, often appearing on a self-moderated panel with his father, actor William Morgan Sheppard. Mark played Canton Everett Delaware III in the opening two-parter of Series 6, but has crafted a career of appearing in many cult sci-fi shows over the years.|
|Deep Roy is famous in recent years for appearing in a variety of Tim Burton productions including Big Fish and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and perhaps best know now as being Scotty’s alien companion Keenser in the new Star Trek films, Deep Roy played the role of Mr. Sin in the iconic 1977 serial “The Talons of Weng-Chiang”. He also appeared in the flesh as The Klute in the beloved Blake’s 7 episode “Gambit”. This will be Deep’s first appearance at Gallifrey One.|
|Garrick Hagon is a Canadian actor by nature (born in London, but raised in Toronto), which makes him an automatic favourite amongst the Three Who Rule. However, he’s more famous in Doctor Who circles for his two roles in the programme, separated by 40 years. He played the lead guest role of Ky in 1972’s “The Mutants”, then returned to the show, playing Abraham the undertaker in 2012’s “A Town Called Mercy”. Of course, in the Star Wars universe, Garrick is famous for playing Biggs Darklighter, a character whose scenes were cut from the final release of the film, but who is mentioned by Luke on occasion, thus adding to Biggs’ legend for years! This will be Garrick’s first Gallifrey One.|
|Mike Tucker is one of the few people in the world who have worked on both the original series of Doctor Who and the new series. Mike is known for his visual effects work, and his FX team won awards and acclaim for its model work in the 50th anniversary story “The Day of the Doctor”. This will be Mike’s first Gallifrey One appearance.|
|Marnix van den Broeke has the kind of presence where once you see him, then look away, you’ll forget that you ever met him. That might sound like an insult, but to Marnix, it’s a compliment to his role as the lead Silence in Series 6 and 7. The tall Dutchman will be making his first appearance at Gallifrey One.|
|Friend of the Show Phil Ford has become one of the new regular writers at Gallifrey One, having only missed one convention since making his first appearance in 2009. Phil will have much to talk about this year with his Series 8 Doctor Who story slated to air on August 30.|
|Derek Ritchie is returning for his second straight Gallifrey One appearance. The script editor for Series 8 of Doctor Who and a producer of Wizards vs Aliens, Derek had a wonderful time at his first convention appearance last year and it will be nice to welcome him back.|
|Check out the full list of guests on the Gallifrey One website. Stay tuned to Gallifrey One and Radio Free Skaro for future guest announcements!|
|It was a week of great tumult in the world of Doctor Who, with the leaking of the first five scripts for Series 8 taking the internet by storm and sending Whovians into spasms of joy, guilt, fear and loathing. Though the scripts have presumably spread far and wide, Who-dom has heeded the call of #keepmespoilerfree and as of release of this episode, no major spoilage is happening in the more reputable corners of the internet.
While lest you think #8gate was the only thing happening in Who this week, rest assured there was movement in the realms of comics, Classic Who (with Retro TV bringing back our old friend on August 4th, starting with “An Unearthly Child”) and shoddily made, possibly foreign but certainly amusing “versions” of Doctor Who from Japan and….well, wherever the hell Beedeer is from.
All this, and an interview with 80’s music maestro Roger Limb in the Miniscope! Listen! WE COMMAND IT!
– Doctor Who Scripts…Leaked!
|It was an exciting week in the world of Doctor Who, with a new teaser, with news of the return of the Cybermen, the addition of the esteemed Frank Cottrell Boyce to the writers team (plus another female director, Sheree Folkson, joining the production team), and a premiere screening taking place in Cardiff. Once all the new shiny is talked about, though, the Three Who Rule dip back in time to commentate over the third part of the Key to Time season, 1978’s “The Stones of Blood”! Ogri, sausage sandwiches, well tamed crows, location videotape, Megara – all sorts of things to enjoy!|
– “It’s time you knew him”…new Series 8 teaser!
|The Series 8 news is slowly building as we hurtle towards August 23rd, the just-announced debut date for Peter Capaldi (aka P-Cap), the 12th (13th?) Doctor in a feature-length adventure called “Deep Breath”. But mixed with excitement is disappointment for some fans, as there will be no San Diego Comic Con panel this year…which makes sense given Doctor Who is to be gallivanting around the globe shortly on a world tour of seven different cities on five continents. But all this is mere preparation for the return of Fluid Links, where we answer your questions about Doctor Who, nonsense, and Doctor Who nonsense! Which questions did we pick? Listen and find out!|
– Doctor Who…Returns August 23!
