 Has anyone listened to these Big Finish audios yet with River Song and the Eighth, Seventh, and Sixth Doctors? I really need people to squee and talk with, especially River's interaction with the Sixth Doctor. Holy moly!

Are posts about possible casting rumours and other potential spoilers appropriate for this forum? If appropriate at all I am assuming they be cut-tagged.

I tried to find Who fandom on DW a year ago and... well, let's just say it was a less than successful experiment.

A brief self-introduction… )
Oh, and the MAIN WHO NEWS THING I WANTED TO SAY.

Britbox.com now has all classic Who LEGALLY AVAILABLE via streaming service, $7/mo in the US. About flipping time; I've emailed the Beeb and Doctor Who about a streaming service for years. They should've done it during the hiatus, but better late than never. Caveat: they're missing a few Dalek serials— I suspect licensing issues— as well as The Five Doctors and the 1996 movie, but they've got all other complete serials from Hartnell through McCoy plus the unaired pilot version of Unearthly Child, Adventure in Time and Space, and a few other features. Also a fair amount of other good classic British TV including lots of mysteries (Campion with Peter Davison and the Jeremy Brett Holmes recommended), Eastenders, Red Dwarf, Upstairs, Downstairs, and a bunch of other good stuff (but not Blake's 7, the Avengers, or Python. Hopefully soon.) 

I think we need to support Britbox so they'll keep it up and, hopefully, expand it for Whovians in other countries to enjoy. Because fans deserve inexpensive ways to sample ALL of Who, past and present. (Speaking of which, I've also posted a linked index of all the free Big Finish Doctor Who audios on Spotify, uploaded by Big Finish, so they, too, are legal.)

I remain behind on everything so many of life's sundries at the minute, and am still time-shifting all viewing.

Fingers crossed I am getting back into the knack of meta/reviewing. As before, I am sticking these up on AO3. If you're interested they are here: Knock Knock & Oxygen.

Thank you.

Comments are always welcome. Replies to those may also be a tad belated.
Sorry.

There are some pics of cosplayers at the bottom of the article. Most reviews are of the panels in the Gallifrey (Doctor Who) and Otherwords (general sf/fantasy) track rooms, along with reviews of some of the actor and writer guests in the ballroom (Main Programing).

The Radio Times has added Luke Treadaway to the list of actors rumoured to be up for playing the 13th Doctor. Google that and Sacha Dhawan also comes up as a possible contender.

Ignoring Dhawan's earlier link with the Whoniverse (he played Waris Hussein, one of the first directors to work on Doctor Who in 1963, in "An Adventure in Space and Time") I'm amused that if it's Treadaway he, like Pearl Mackie, will have come to the show having been in the stage production of "The Curious Case of the Dog in the Nightime" and, if it's Dhawan, he was a History Boy, like Matt Smith before him.

All hail the N.T. (National Theatre)
