"Who Da Man?"

Posts tagged ‘River Song’

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.

Australia to get it’s own Doctor Who Proms

Well, it’s called a Doctor Who Symphony Spectacular, most likely a marketing name, it works though, it’s got me extremely excited! What this will be is Ben Foster, for those who don’t know – what’s wrong with you – Ben has Composed for Torchwood, working with Murray Gold for the first 2 seasons and then working on his own for Children Of Earth. He’s also the Arranger & Conductor for Doctor Who, he’s conducting the Orchestra while Murray’s on Skype giving them notes, when that happens of course, coming to Australia, Victoria aka my part of town – or just off, he’s going to Melbourne, but that’s just three hours drive away – and he’ll conduct the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (who I saw in action with the brilliant & funny Tim Minchin at the The Palais theatre, Melbourne (obviously), you can see my thoughts on that here:  http://rhysparton.wordpress.com/2011/02/28/my-great-weekend/.

It’s pretty much the Doctor Who Proms, with people in Monster/Villian/Creature costume, a big screen with clips & montages from the show (mainly the two latest seasons), and maybe some special lighting effects, or am I thinking Doctor Who Live? Or a mic of both? Anyway to quote the article on The Doctor Who Website:

“Philip Murphy, Managing Director of BBC Worldwide Live Events said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing a live show to Australia’s legion of Doctor Who fans and especially to be premiering a new event with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.”

“Doctor Who has an appeal that crosses the generations,” said the MSO’s Managing Director Matthew VanBesien. “This is a great opportunity for people of all ages to hear a full symphony orchestra as part of a unique and exciting entertainment concept.”

So it’s brilliant that something Who related is breaking some  records in Australia. 1. the first time an Orchestra here has (officially at least) have played something like this & 2. The first time that a Doctor Who live event has been staged by BBC Worldwide outside the UK.

The  dates are Saturday the 4th of February 2012 at 2pm and 7pm

Venue: Plenary Hall, Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, Victoria, Australia

Tickets: From AUD$ 49 (50 pretty much…) to book in Australia call – 13 61 00 or visit http://www.mso.com.au

I’ll be there! I hope to see you! 🙂

If I can I will try & get my hands on a portable mic so I can record bits,at the place (not parts of the show, copyright…) for the podcast, so if your a fan (of the podcast…obviously, not who itself), try & find me! You’ll probably roconigse me, I’ll most likely be dressed up as The Eleventh Doctor (he’s says in Winter when wearing that isn’t too hot), so keep your eyes out for me.
