"Who Da Man?"

Posts tagged ‘Doctor Who blog’

I’m moving!

Now don’t get worried, this is only for improvements, in fact, it’s already been quite helpful. I wouldn’t blame you if you’re wondering what ‘It’ is, given the complete lack of information! The ‘It’ in question is not in fact a disembodied walking hand, it’s the fact that I’ve registered a domain. That’s right, Who Is The Man can now be found at www.whoisthemanpodcast.com, there’s no .Wordpress.com needed.

This blog will stay up, but the main activity will happen at the new website. Everything will be just like normal (well, as close to normal as I can get), just somewhere else.

Enjoy.

Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular thoughts, pics, and video!

So, on Saturday I was lucky enough to go down to Melbourne to see the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular! You may have already seen/heard my podcast episode about it, but here are some videos, more thoughts and some pictures.

To start off with, this was my first Doctor Who event (apart the event I make watching every episode as it airs for the first time – my inner 5 year old always comes out) and it was truly fantastic! The atmosphere in and around the building was full of excitement, much Who knowledge – and challenges/quizzes of said knowledge that I overheard, sonic screwdrivers buzzing, and a lot of excited chatter! And not just from me. I guess it was a bit of a preview of what a convention is like (oh, how I would love to go to a convention!) with many people with a deep ingrained love for the same thing, coming together to celebrate it.

So, to start off with, there were cosplayers. There were many cosplayers! We had a Tenth Doctor (see further down the post for a picture of him and myself), several 11 Doctor’s – me included, quite a few Amy’s, a lot of Rivers (that just sounds weird… “Welcome to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, mind your step, we’ve got River’s running. Running around that is!”), a Liz Ten/10, a Star Trek Captain (he got a lot of attention), and even a Sherlock Holmes! Oh, and this little guy:

Adorable! This little fella was running around the room, pointing at interesting things, and waving at people.

Up next we have the excellent Tenth Doctor cosplayer I mentioned before:

Sadly we didn’t get his converse trainers in shot, but they did complete the costume.

Now, the show. Mark Sheppard (Canton Delawar The Third in Doctor Who, Badger in Firefly – not that I have to tell you) hosted the show, and did a fantastic job doing so. He started off by telling us who his Doctor was (Jon Pertwee if you weren’t aware), then he wound us up by saying Murray Gold was among us, and we all cheered and got very (very, VERY! In my case) excited!

Eventually there guys and gals turned up!

Eventually, at the end of the show, Murray Gold himself went up on stage and played these two pieces!

Doctor Who on iView

While ABC2 is showing all 6 seasons of New Who they also have the episodes on iView, for those of us who don’t have the DVDs to enjoy them again (well, for a bit).

They have the 2010 Christmas Special – The Doctor, The Widow, and The Wardrobe – up there for your view pleasure (depending on your thoughts): http://www.abc.net.au/iview/#/view/873253

There is also the 2010 and Christmas Special, A Christmas Carol available: http://www.abc.net.au/iview/#/view/691961

There is also the 2009 Special, The Next Doctor: http://www.abc.net.au/iview/#/view/331120

I’m guessing the Marathon will be on there eventually.

Also, for older viewers they have Torchwood season 1: http://www.abc.net.au/iview/#/view/391012

ABC2 Doctor Who tweet along.

“Fantastic!” Doctor Who is back for Aussie viewers! Every Monday to Friday at 7:30 pm starting tonight (as I type) they’re showing all of New Who from the start. Now, if you have Twitter and can use it while you’re watching, tweet your opinions to the show; @WhoITMPodcast or use the hash-tag #WhoIsTheMan, or use the name of the episode as a hash-tag, and I’ll read ’em out!

So, tomorrow night use #TheEndOfTheWorld and #WhoIsTheMan as the Hash-tag so I can find them easily and I’ll read them out, I’ll make a collection each week of tweets about each episode have them by the end of the week on the podcast.
