It’s the preamble to the most wonderful time of the year as we eschew the news of the week and go full bore with our annual Gallifrey One preview! Listen to us cogitate about the first Gally since 2020 (and the pandemic) to feature attendance by every single one of the Three Who Rule who will open the con with our live show Get Back at 11 a.m. Friday the 17th! As is tradition, we go through the stuffed to the gills schedule and highlight both things were looking forward to and panels, photo ops, commentaries and more that you might wish to attend, should you be in Los Angeles!
It’s just under two weeks until the Three Who Rule descend upon the LAX Marriott for Gallifrey One….which is now sold out! In the meantime RTD hints at all of Doctor Who once again gracing the iPlayer, there’s mmmrahhhh business to speak of involving BBC Studios bigwig talk of growth, mergers and acquisitions and other such financial tomfoolery, along with an “impossible” new TARDIS set and The Timelash, where we travel back in time to guess and frankly make things up about the week in Doctor Who!
Finally our live show can be revealed as we Get Back to Gallifrey One in Los Angeles, CA! Plus the Gally schedule is out in the wild, there are updates afoot about said convention, and RTD is confirming spinoffs but not confirming Edgar Wright as a future director, whatever misleading GQ headlines may imply. And to continue the string of new and exciting content Jo Jones appears in a trailer for the Season 9 – The Collection set, news of LI Who guests, and of course the feature we love and you tolerate, The Timelash!
As we veer closer to Gallifrey One at the LAX Marriott, none other than Chris Chibnall, he who what ran Doctor Who most recently is on his way to Los Angeles to answer your (pre-approved, no comments please) questions! Plus we have news of new actors just announced by current/future Doctor Who showrunner Russell The Davies for upcoming Who, a tour of another showrunner’s writer’s room as Steven Moffat gave a tour of his scribbling nook and the Timelash, where we’ll probably talk about showrunners!
It’s a slow week for Doctor Who news but that won’t stop the Three Who Rule from prattling on about Gallifrey One and Long Island Who updates, an upcoming book about Doctor Who story editor and writer David Whitaker by one Simon Guerrier, and a deep dive into both forgotten and unused Doctor Who story titles of days gone by and the extensive writing career of one Ingrid Pitt! Myrka kicker, actor, and novelist, oh my!
We have an extra special third chair this week, as Erika Ensign of Verity! substitutes for Chris, give us an update on the status of said Doctor Who podcast, and we discuss all manner of Who news including the benefits of combined virtual and in-person cons, new guests coming to Gallifrey One (mere weeks away!) and an onslaught of tat including box sets, audio, digital histories and more! All this and the ever-present Timelash and a staggering web of Who actors related to, partnered with or married to other Who actors that’s sure to confustigate you with befuddlement!
Happy Holidays all and especially a Happy Boxing Day to those in Canada and the UK. And quite a sock to the jaw it was to see a Doctor Who 60th anniversary trailer on Xmas Day! Still nothing new with Ncuti Gatwa’s incarnation of the Doctor but we do have more of Tennant’s Who the 14th, Donna Noble, and most importantly, Beep The Meep! If that wasn’t enough, we’re joined by Kat Griffiths of Verity! and Erika Ensign of Verity!, Lazy Doctor Who, Total Party Kill and more for the first and only Doctor Who Holiday Death Match where we decide once and for all the all-time champion Xmas/New Year special! Get ready for fierce debate, divisive opinions and…maybe some boxing? Tune in and find out!

Happy New Year! It’s the beginning of 2023 so what better way to ring in the new year with two things recorded in 2022! First we have the Timelash, and then we bring you the adventures of PCap, Bill, and a bunch of wacky termite infested kids as they take on a haunted house, a weirdo landlord and more in our Modern Series Commentary for “Knock Knock”!
