It is with a heavy heart that we mark the passing of acting legend John Hurt, beloved by Whovians for his portrayal of the War Doctor in “The Day of the Doctor” but with a career spanning the best of film, TV, and the stage. In happier news, we can now announce the guests for our Gallifrey One live show (contained within) and some other notable Gally news, updates and miscellany! We also announce the winner of our Whographica giveaway contest! Plus stats (bleh) and a commentary for the 1978 story “The Ribos Operation”! To me, Sholakh!

Happy New Year! After battling illness and ennui over the past week and a half, the Three Who Rule are back with a bumper episode to launch 2013, the centrepiece of which is an epic interview with Kevin Jon Davies. Davies was the director and producer of “More Than 30 Years In The TARDIS”, the BBC’s official 30th anniversary celebration for Doctor Who, but his connection to the worlds of Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, and Blake’s 7, made for a fascinating chat. Also, your three hosts run down the Christmas time viewing figures, discuss their importance, and also talk about puppies. Six weeks until Gallifrey One!

Gallifrey One – More 2013 Guests Announced!

Two months (has it already been that long?) since the first guests were announced, Gallifrey One, the longest-running North American Doctor Who convention, has released the second batch of guests for its next iteration, running February 15-17, 2013. One very familiar face leads the pack along with a number of other fantastic guests making their first appearances, including one of the most celebrated actors to ever appear in Doctor Who.

Sir Derek Jacobi is one of the most accomplished actors to ever appear on stage, television, and in film. Famous for I, Claudius (1976), and several BBC Shakespeare productions, Jacobi left an indelible mark on Doctor Who with his memorable performance as Professor Yana/The Master in 2007’s “Utopia”. He also appeared as The Master in 2003’s “The Scream of the Shalka”. Sir Derek will be making his first appearance at Gallifrey One in 2013.
Frazer Hines is practically a Gallifrey One mainstay and is always a welcome addition to the event. Best known to Doctor Who fans, of course, as Jamie McCrimmon, companion to second Doctor Patrick Troughton, Frazer unfortunately had to miss the last Gally and we’re glad to see him back for 2013.
Frances Barber was seen in Doctor Who last year as the mysterious eyepatch lady, Madame Kovarian. A veteran of the stage, music, television and more, Barber will be making her Gallifrey One debut in 2013.
Also making his Gallifrey One debut, Bruno Langley played Adam Mitchell in two episodes of the 2005 series alongside Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper. He is also widely known for his portrayal of Todd Grimshaw on Coronation Street, the first openly gay character on the long-running soap.
Neve McIntosh has played multiple roles in Doctor Who over the past two series, all under heavy makeup as a Silurian, including the role of ally to The Doctor, Madame Vastra. She is also a veteran of film, theatre and television and is making her first appearance at Gallifrey One.
Madame Vastra’s companion in A Good Man Goes to War, Jenny, was portrayed by Catrin Stewart, and we’re happy to learn the actors will be reunited at Gallifrey One. Stewart, like McIntosh, is making her first Gallifrey One appearance.
Finn Jones portrayed Jo Jones’ grandson, Santiago, on The Sarah Jane Adventures in 2010. He is also well known for his role of Ser Loras Tyrell in the HBO mega-hit Game of Thrones. As with many others in this batch of guests, Jones is making his first appearance at Gallifrey One.
Last, but certainly not least, Dan Starkey will also be making his first Gallifrey One appearance. Starkey is known to Doctor Who fans for playing multiple Sontarans in five different episodes, as well as two episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures and one of the Doctor Who Adventure Games.
Memberships for Gallifrey One are available from the convention website, and currently cost $75 for the entire weekend of programming. We’ll be there as usual, again opening the convention with a live show, and we hope to see you there too!
