We’re All Stories In The End. Just Make It A Good One.

Over the years on Doctor Who: Podshock we often in our news segments had the unfortunate duty of relaying to our listeners the passing of people connected to Doctor Who. It's unavoidable being the long history of the series, now well over a half a century old and going. What is not common is having to announce the passing of one us. A fellow fan. A listener. A contributor. Today is one of those times.

It is with much sadness that I inform our listeners of a passing of a regular guest host on our show, Taras Hnatyshyn. Earlier this week we lost Taras after a long illness. Before becoming a regular guest host and a moderator here on our site, Taras was a long time listener and contributor to our show. His enthusiasm and excitement for all things Doctor Who was unparalleled and often contagious

Taras knew his stuff. He had an encyclopedia knowledge of Doctor Who. He could tell you which episode a character was last seen in and when they first appeared and probably how episodes they were showed up in between. He was a great resource any time we had the delight and privilege of having him record with us.

He spent much of 2012-2013 starting his own blog, HRtoWHO, and connecting with other human resource professionals across the globe via social media. Kyle returned to the live shows as a guest for all but one episode of Series 8 in 2014.

Happy Birthday, Waris Hussein

Waris Hussein, the first director of Doctor Who (he had directed An Unearthly Child back in 1963) turned 73 today. Though you would never guess it if you spent some time with him as he comes across as someone much younger. We had the honour and privilege of spending a little time with him in Los Angeles last February when we introduced him as our special surprise guest in our Doctor Who: Podshock live show on stage at Gallifrey One. He is charming and intelligent.

A couple weeks ago for the 48th anniversary of Doctor Who I once again watched An Unearthly Child (Part One) as I do traditionally on the anniversary. Despite its age, it never gets old.

Happy Birthday, Waris!

Ian Bisset, Host

Tara and IanTara and IanIan Bisset was born and raised in Lower Hutt, New Zealand and until 1988 was a Doctor Who watcher rater than a fan, it took the acting prowess of Colin Baker to start the young man off in his journey to becoming a Doctor Who fan!

By 1991, Ian was established in the Wellington Chapter of the New Zealand Doctor Who Fan Club and attended his first Doctor Who convention (it was one day with no guests an it was held in a school hall). By 1992, Ian was instrumental in organizing DoctorCon 2,

Yet another guest-less convention, but one that got the attention of the New Zealand media due to a typo.
