Doctor Who Dark Journey writer and star Andrew Chalmers gave an interview to Blue Box Balm where he talks about everything from Jon Pertwee moving him in to his amazing catch phrase (cool beans) to yours truly. Learn how he would unite all sci fi fandom and why he thinks the cast of Big Bang Theory are full of themselves. Take a minute and give it a read, it’s hilarious and you won’t regret it.
As the convention season draws to a close for another year, you still have one last chance to see a Doctor. Andrew Chalmers and Mike Tamburro will be at the Hamilton Comic Con this Saturday, October 4th! They will be in space 943. Other featured guests include Lou Ferrigno and Julie Newmar. So if you are in the Toronto area, why not head down and say hello to the Cool Beans Doctor!
October 10th will mark the one year anniversary since Enemy Of The World and Web Of Fear were announced. What an amazing day that was, breathlessly waiting for the embargo to lift so the world could find out just what missing episodes had come back!
Well the Doctor Who Missing Episodes Discussion Group on Facebook is having a week long event to celebrate those stories and the man who found them, Phil Morris. Starting October 5th, the group will be discussing those seminal stories and the return their impact has had on fandom. The week long celebration will culminate in a special Comment A Long, the “Double 6’s” as it’s been dubbed. On October 12th at 7PM UK time (2PM Central NA) group members will have the opportunity to watch episode 6 of Enemy of the World simultaneously and talk about it live as it happens via a facebook thread. There will be a short break after Enemy and at 7:45PM Web of Fear 6 will be watched and discussed.
But the fun and good times don’t end there. After the dust has settled from the double 6’s there will be a draw for some extremely exclusive and unique prizes. More details to come as they are announced!
f you are already a member of the Facebook group you will get an invite real soon and if you aren’t a member, now would be the perfect time to get on board!
R1 fans know just how long they have to wait before they can get their hands on the latest season of Doctor Who. December 9, 2014 is the official release date over on this side of the pond, just in time for Christmas. No word on special features yet or what it includes, though I would assume it starts with Day Of The Doctor and includes Time Of The Doctor before moving into Series 8 proper with Deep Breath. Stay tune, more details as they come!
Do you love Doctor Who? Probably since you are frequenting this news site. What about prog rock? Because there is a new podcast in town combining those two elements and it’s called… wait for it…. Progtor Who.
Marc Atkinson, Bob Fleming and Craig Stimson are the men behind this awesome fusing of rock and Doc. In the podcast they talk about Doctor Who with the passion and knowledge of lifelong fans of the show and they’re musicians too. Each week the guys pick four quality Prog Rock tunes and insert them in between the banter for your listening pleasure.
They’ve done two podcasts so far and plan to do one after each episode of the new series offering up their rock n roll opinion.
If you want to see a Doctor this weekend in Toronto, you have two choices. You could pay $100 to get a photo and a few seconds with the 11th Doctor Matt Smith. Or you can head down to artists alley on Saturday and you can hang with Andrew ‘the cool beans Doctor’ Chalmers as much as you want.
