|It’s a little early to start talking about Gallifrey One’s next con in 2016..or is it? Not since tickets go on sale on May 4th (10 a.m. Pacific) and the Marriott’s block of hotel room goes on sale a week later on May 11th! And if the world’s greatest convention isn’t your thing, some sweet faux-Target novel covers of Series 8 stories might be to your liking. No? How about some superbly crafted pewter figures of Silurians? Old William Hartnell footage? Calgary Expo news? Not easy to please, are you? Fine, have an interview with Doctor Who composer Murray Gold, then, and hear him talk about creating music for Doctor Who in 2005 and in 2015, and also hear him reveal details about the upcoming Series 8 soundtrack. Ingrate.|
– Gallifrey One…2016 Ticket Sales!
|Fighting off con crud, sleeplessness and the ever-present post Gallifrey One blues, the Three Who Rule were joined by fourth Beatle Chip of Two Minute Time Lord fame for the news, and by author and televisual scholar John Williams for a commentary of “Deep Breath”, the first of our Series 8 commentaries that will hopefully enthrall and entertain you over the coming weeks! Truly an occasion for many numerals and capital letters in an episode write up.|
– Gallifrey One…2016 Ticket Changes
|Gallifrey One! Mere weeks from now the noble RFS crew will take the stage in Los Angeles to deliver Radio Free Skaro: Behind the Magic, and here in this very podcast we announce our lineup! Who are they? Listen and find out! You’ll also hear a drabble of news, but more importantly, we also have a fun interview panel from Chicago TARDIS with Annette Badland, Noel Clarke, and Camille Coduri! Can you stand the excitement? Are we capable of asking things in a non-hyperbolic manner? The answer to both questions is surely no!|
– Radio Free Skaro…Behind The Magic!
|The 26 Seasons of Gallifrey One is set to take place from February 13-15 at the LAX Marriott Hotel in Los Angeles, California, and for the fourth year in a row, Radio Free Skaro is proud to kick off the convention on the main stage at 10:30am on Friday, February 13! The show will be called RADIO FREE SKARO: BEHIND THE MAGIC, and will feature a host of behind the scenes guests who have been responsible for making Doctor Who over the years! Appearing with us on stage will be:|
Series 8 Panel, Featuring Rachel Talalay, Jamie Mathieson, and Peter Harness
Rachel Talalay (director of “Dark Water” and “Death in Heaven”), Jamie Mathieson (writer of “Mummy on the Orient Express” and “Flatline”), and Peter Harness (writer of “Kill The Moon”) lead off our show with tales and insight on the making of the most recent series of Doctor Who.
One of the first people contacted by Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner to work on the new series of Doctor Who back in 2003, Andy Pryor has been involved in the casting of virtually every single actor to appear in Doctor Who for the past 8 series, including the Ninth, Tenth, and Eleventh Doctors.
Chip Sudderth of Two-Minute Time Lord
Our friend Chip (who is also our technical producer) returns to the stage this year with a presentation of his popular podcast Two-Minute Time Lord! Chip’s previous appearances have been very popular with audiences at the show and listening later on the podcast, and we’re delighted to welcome Chip back to the show.
Danny Hargreaves, Arwel Wyn Jones, and Claire Pritchard
As art director on Doctor Who, Arwel Wyn Jones spends his time making sure the sets and locations look good and believable. Danny Hargreaves, the special effects supervisor on Doctor Who, then comes along and blows it all up. Both aspects of making (and unmaking!) Doctor Who will be covered with these fine gentlemen, and Claire Pritchard will describe what goes into designing the makeup design on Doctor Who!
It all kicks off at 10:30am on Friday, February 13 in the Main Programming Hall at Gallifrey One. Get there early!
Stay tuned to Radio Free Skaro and radiofreeskaro.com for further details about the show, and visit the Gallifrey One website (www.gallifreyone.com) for updates on the convention itself. See you all there!
