Happy Anniversary (s) ! [27 Mar 2011|09:47am]

Two very special things happened on this day, March 26, in 2005.

First, "Rose", the debut episode of the regenerated Doctor Who series, was
broadcast on BBC. Producer Julie Gardner said that she was hoping against
hope that they'd be lucky enough to get 6 million viewers, but in the back
of her mind she expected it to be 3 million. She was completely shocked
when 11 million viewers tuned in to watch the moment when Rose Tyler's life
would change forever.

Second, something very similar happened a little closer to home. The very
first TimeGate occurred that same day! And just like with "Rose" ... we
were hoping to get 40 or 50 people, but Susan and I told each other. "If we
only get 25, we'll be thrilled. This is something we've wanted to do for a
long time and we're going to enjoy it no matter what." We were totally
blown away when *85 people* attended that very first one-day mini-con.

As you know, TimeGate has grown immensely since that day 6 years ago. Those
first few TimeGates were one-day affairs held in an Elk's Lodge. We had six
panels -- three Stargate ones and three Doctor Who ones. We showed videos,
we had gaming, we had special contests. We even had a few dealers at a
couple of them. But we had no guests at the first three TimeGates. And we
continued to grow. Pretty rapidly, in fact. Soon, we had to make the move
into a hotel and to a full weekend convention.

Since that time, our guests roster had really blossomed. We've had actors,
writers, script editors, and composers from both Doctor Who and Stargate.
We've also had authors, comic book illustrators, scientists, merchandisers,
film archivists, biographers, game designers and many more. And they've all
been wonderful!

And our audience has grown tremendously as well. We're expecting this year
to be our biggest attendance yet. A lot of that is due to the great guests
that we have booked, led by Sophie Aldred, Andrew Cartmel and Ben
Aaronovitch from Doctor Who (the Seventh Doctor era), and Mike Dopud from
Stargate Universe and the upcoming Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us from the beginning. And for
those of you that we picked up along the way -- thank you too for coming on
board and for continuing the journey with us. We are going to do everything
we can to make this year the best TimeGate ever.

Thanks, everyone. See you in May at TIMEGATE!!!
May 27-29, 2011

Doctor Wha-hoo! [08 Nov 2010|07:08am]


Watching the Classic Who episodes where 'Romana' is introduced (“The Key to Time,” &c.), it occurs to me that the producers of Dr Who missed an amusing opportunity. That they would have passed it by even if it had occurred to them - that indeed they might not have been allowed, even if they'd wished it - is, for the purpose of my idle speculation, irrelevant…

this opportunity for ratings bonanzaCollapse )

2 The screenwriter had perhaps read John Varley's Titan, where the main character, having been through all kinds of Lost World adventures of danger and exhaustion, was asked by the Big Boss at the end, “Was it fun?” and she opened her mouth in outrage - and closed it again. Yah, actually - it had been the adventure of a lifetime!

The Leisure Hive [08 Oct 2010|09:00am]

I just watched this again after having not seen it in a good 10 years. As much as I can loathe JNT at times, I do really enjoy this episode. There's just so many little moments of genuis that have stuck with me over the years since I first saw this episode back in the 80's: the Doctor's scarf being tied around the neck of the stragulation victim,the beads falling off of Argoilians heads etc.

I also really enjoy Peter Howell's theme and incidental music. It instantly takes me back to being 11 and watching Who on Saturday afternoons. And for that reason, most of Davidson's stories have stuck with me just as long.

I like Davidson as well, but mainly his stories. I think his character lacked the presence and insight of almost every previous Doctor. He allways seemed to me to be a fumbling, awkward, asthmatic sort of graduate student who was unsure of himself.

The fouled regeration may have been an attempt by JNT to reset the character a bit, but in my opinion he should have developed the personality differently, but yet kept the character of a centuries old timelord. Companions are for the audience to identify with, not the Doctor, at least IMHO.

Turn Your Back - Chapter Four has 4 and Sarah Jane [11 Sep 2010|01:22pm]

Fandom: Doctor Who
Title: Turn Your Back
Rating: All Audiences
Genre: Humor
Warnings: Nudity
Synopsis: The Eleventh Doctor said, "If it embarrasses you, turn your back," and I thought Hmmmm, nudity. What would the first 10 Doctors do in a similar situation? Fun premise! So... Avert your eyes. Enjoy!

(X-posted just about everywhere. Sorry!)

Doctor One - "What a piece of work is man!"

Doctor Two - "Never mind it, Victoria."

Doctor Three - "Y-fronts?"

Doctor Four - "I AM CALM!!!!"

Doctor Five - Adric ran for it.

Doctor Six - He admired that in a woman.

Doctor Seven - "They're filthy!"

Doctor Eight - "Er. Pretty color."

Doctor Nine - "Well played, sir."

Doctor Ten - "Turn your head and cough."

One thing, though, both my betas were distracted by real life (the nerve!) and they had to withdraw. If anyone out there wants to send any sort of critique my way I'd be very grateful.

A couple of offerings from a new member. [09 May 2010|12:47pm]

Hello! I do love Doctor 4 (despite what I do to him, poor man) so here are a couple of fics for everyone's reading pleasure.

Title: Variations on a Theme
Starring: Jo Grant and Doctors 3, 4 and 6
Rating: All Ages
Genre: Het, hurt/comfort, humor
Plot: What is a naturally chilly space alien to do when a blast from his past comes down with heat exhaustion? Jo and the Sixth Doctor find out. (Not like that. Well, maybe a teeny bit like that. Note the rating.)
Author's Notes: Four comes in, in a big way, during the 3rd act. Many thanks go out to rude_not_ginger, philosophercat and merlinsseer for their beta skills. Also, I wrote this before learning that Jo becomes aware of the concept of multiple Doctors in 'The Three Doctors.' Oooops. Well, this is how she finds out in the Singe-verse!

Title: Long Leggity Beasty
Starring: Sarah Jane and the 4th Doctor
Rating: Teen
Genre: Het, humor, horror
Plot: A Halloween story! This is set the October after the Doctor abruptly leaves Sarah Jane behind in Aberdeen. His return leaves her feeling somewhat drained. (Yes, vampire AU. After 'Vampires of Venice' I thought it'd be timely.)
Author's Notes: The 'Spooky' poem is by Bobbi Katz. 'Antigonish' (aka The Man Who Wasn't There) is by Hughes Mearns. The movie Sarah Jane quotes is 1951's 'The Thing.' The other verses are by unknown authors.

Do you like the pairing of Four and Leela? [23 Oct 2009|07:13pm]

After watching "The Image of Fendahl" for the first time, I'm struck again by the chemistry Tom and Louise have on-screen. I thought Four and Leela were a great pairing. She didn't get as screechy as Sarah at times, and she was able to fight back like Romana. I thought she was totally cool. Who cares that she wore about three inches of clothing - she was still pretty fierce. I guess I'm just wondering why the fans don't seem to like that pairing as much. Did Tom and Louise even get along?

Anyway, long story short, they made a great team on screen and lightened up bad stories like "Fendahl". I wish they had made more stories together!

[20 Jul 2009|03:09am]

The Doctor and his companions visit 16th century Bristol, England!

There, he meets an old friend, John the smith, and catches up on the latest happenings. Seems ol Queen Bess is in town for a royal visit and the townfolk are having a celebration!

So off he goes to confer with one of the Queen's top doctors who asks him about Her Majesty's latest headaches and the proper application of leeches, to which the Doctor offers a suitable alternative, something called Bayer.

Not pictured is the Doctor running for his bloody life when the Queen sees him and recognizes him and orders his execution!

Children of Time Awards [17 Apr 2009|02:57pm]

The Children of Time Awards has only 8 days left to submit nominations for Round 3. Time is quickly running out to get your nominations in and we still have a lot of categories in need of nominations. I know there is so much wonderful fic out there that is not getting nominated that should be. I'd love to see all the wonderful authors here represented.

At the moment we are in desperate need of Classic Who nominations. We don't have a single Classic Who category with enough nominees to go to voting next week.

So if you have a few moments check out The Children of Time Awards and nominate your favorite authors and artists so that they get the recognition they deserve.
