Karen Gillan: "Anything is Possible in Doctor Who" (video)

We had the pleasure of meeting Karen Gillan (Amy Pond in Doctor Who) this past April (2010) covering the event for Doctor Who: Podshock. Although we were there chiefly to record audio and shot still photos, we did manage to capture some short video of the red carpet interviews (thanks to the iPhone 3GS). This is one.

This is Karen Gillan at the US premiere of Doctor Who (the 1st Matt Smith series) at the Paley Center for Media in NYC speaking of going from her first role in Doctor Who (The Fires of Pompeii) to a full time companion.

A Special Anniversary Event?

Gallifreyan Embassy's 2nd Anniversary Cake

As you already know if you read my previous post (It Was 25 Years Ago Today…), that today marks the 25th anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy.

Over the past few months we have been discussing having some sort of special anniversary event to mark the occasion this year. You may remember last year we held an event in Manhattan for our 24th anniversary in which we paired up with a monthly DWNY meet up and brought the lovely Daphne Ashbrook (Dr. Grace Holloway from the 1996 Doctor Who movie) to the event. See Happy Anniversary to Us… for further details.

We would like to something special for our 25th as well. It would be an event in the NY area, perhaps on Long Island as that is where it all began, yet still be accessible to our friends in NYC. Maybe a dinner event? Would you be interested in attending?

It Was 25 Years Ago Today, The Gallifreyan Embassy Began…

It was a quarter of century ago today, as hard as it is for me believe, is when the Gallifreyan Embassy began. Unbeknownst at the time, it was the day after the Discovery Channel was launched. It was also the day after the launch of the space shuttle Discovery (STS-51-G) which marked the first Arab and Muslim in space (payload specialist Sultan bin Salman bin Adulaziz Al Saud). Yes, it was 1985. Ronald Reagan was in the White House, Commodore launches the Amiga personal computer while NeXT is founded by Steve Jobs after leaving Apple Computer.

Just two weeks before we went Back to the Future in the theaters, the Gallifreyan Embassy of Long Island officially began.

Live from Fiddlesticks!

This past Thursday (May 20, 2010), Doctor Who: Podshock recorded a live show at the book launch party for The Mythological Dimensions of Doctor Who. Taking place at Fiddlesticks Pub & Grill in Manhattan (NYC), Ken, Billy and I arrived to see the venue was swarming with activity. Having passed it many times, I believe I have a vague memory being a patron there some years ago. I can recommend their veggie burgers (Ken and Billy equally recommend their other burgers).

Launch party for the book The Mythological Dimensions of Doctor Who and Doctor Who Podshock: Live! on May 20, 2010 at the Fiddlesticks Pub in New York's West Village. Launch party for the book The Mythological Dimensions of Doctor Who and Doctor Who Podshock: Live! on May 20, 2010 at the Fiddlesticks Pub in New York's West Village.
