Andrew Chalmers Interview

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.

Dark Journey Adds Gittoes and Ladkin

Things are heating up for Series 2 of Doctor Who Dark Journey. AM Audio Media has just announced that Aaron Gittoes of Doctor Who Fan Art and Dave Ladkin of Doctor Who artwork by VortexVisuals will on board as cover artists  for the new series.

See the Doctor In Hamilton

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!

The Doctor Is In… At Fan Expo Toronto

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.

You heard right, the Dark Journey Doctor and the other good folks from amaudiomedia.com will be letting it all hang out on Saturday in Toronto.  Not only will they be on hand to meet and greet with Doctor Who fans, the guys will also be recording a special podcast for Gallifrey Stands on site! Do you like free stuff? Yeah? Well they will also be handing out some promotional goodies.

If you haven’t listened to the audio’s yet, what are you waiting for? Check them out at amaudiomedia.com. They would be a great way to pass the time while you are standing in line, waiting to get in.

So, if you are going to be in Toronto this weekend, check out Fan Expo. And if you are going to be at Fan Expo, check out the Artists Alley and visit with the amazing guys from Doctor Who Dark Journey and say “hi” for me.

Tickets can be bought at the door, check out the Fan Expo website for more details.

Future Dark Journeys?

You know the phrase “better late than never?” Well the awesome guys behind Doctor Who Dark Journey might have something to say about that phrase because I have been extremely late.

Way back at the beginning of the summer I recorded a two part interview with them. The first part has already been posted, in it we talk about the first four episodes of their fan produced Doctor Who audio. But the second  interview? It’s lain dormant on a hard drive as the dog days of summer have affected my work habits and work ethic. Well, the time has finally come. Here is part two of the interview in which we talk about what I love about their show (and what I didn’t like), the Master as a stay at home mom, what is coming up in season 2 (spoilers) and more.

Dark Journey Episode 5

“They say you judge a man on the strength of his enemies.”

The Doctor journeys to his darkest place searching out the truth that will save the day in this final episode of Doctor Who Dark Journey!

A few days ago I had the chance to talk to Mike Tamburro, Clayton Turner and the ‘Cool Beans’ Doctor himself, Andrew Chalmers regarding the first four episodes of Dark Journey. Five questions turned into eighteen minutes of conversation about the good times and the bad that the Doctor has gone through so far. It was a great chat, please give it a listen, you won’t be disappointed!

But all good things must come to an end. Tonight I listened to the last episode, Death On Baker Street. The amazing folks over at AMAudioMedia.com courteously provided me with an advance copy of this final episode, letting me be among the first to hear the completed version, and I am honoured!

So, what can you expect from this final episode without getting too spoilery? Stuff. It happens. Lots of it. Oh, a little too vague there? Okay, well in the last episode we see the Doctor going to his dark place in an attempt to learn the truth behind the brutal Jack the Ripper murders. He finds out, but gets more than he bargains for. Who are the Illuminatios and what is their connection to all of this? Where do the Watchers fit in?

This is my favourite kind of final episode. Jammed full of info and surprising reveals sandwiched between great action scenes and trademark humour from our two heroes. And, of course, you are left wanting more!

It’s been fun talking to Mike, Andrew and Clayton over the past couple of months and getting the word out about this awesome project. But they aren’t done yet. Not by a long shot. Next week I will post an interview with the guys about the future of Dark Journey!
