    With the Doctor Who Magazine release of the ming-mongiest list of favorite Doctor Who episodes in the past 11 years (when a nuWho-less but also ming-mongy list sparked debate amongst the faithful), the Three Who Rule were like starving, nerdy dogs drawn to raw meat. Weighing in on their own picks and what they felt was wrong-headed and frankly evil placement of some of their favorite episodes, they also made time to speculate on the scheduling of Dreamland, the Waters of Mars and to roundly chastise Richard Curtis for not getting his Doctor Who air dates right. And oh yes, a Miniscope featuring Pennant Roberts also made an appearance, flood-lit and underbudgeted. Hoo...ray.

    12:13 (GMT) - 15 Sep 2009

    Whooverville was more than a Doctor Who convention, for me at least.A A historic meeting of so many Doctor Who podcasters.

    It all began on a slightly chilly Butterley Train Station platform at 10AM on Sunday 6th September 2009.A Four of our Staggering Stories team (Karen, Jean, Keith and myself, Adam) stumbled onto the platform to be greeted by The Colin Baker posing next to a black Dalek.A Probably an unusual sight for this particular museum train station, I’ve not had the chance to return on a different morning to see if Colin and Dalek are there again – I rather doubt it.

    I can’t remember the order of the meetings but, like a coalescing star, somehow the podcasters were drawn together on the platform – the geekest of the geek horde that had invaded the heritage railway station.A Kindred spirits!

    The steam train to take us on to the giant shed that was to host Whooverville was waiting at the platform as we arrived.A It was, however, lacking a ‘fireman’ (a coal shoveller) so we were late getting away.A That wasn’t a problem, though, as it gave us more time to talk amongst ourselves and have a wonderful photo taken for our albums:

    Whooverville 2009 podcasters, at train station (by kind permission of Nat Titman)

    In the above photo (taken by podcaster Nat Titman from Bridging the Rift), starting at the the left we have -
    Back row: James Rockliffe from Whocast and Dad’s Army podcast, James Naughton from Podshock and Hitchhiker’s Guide to British Sci-Fi, Jean Riddler (holding the Head of Pertwee) and Karen Dunn from Staggering Stories, Marty Perrett from Whocast and Box Room, Dave Cooper from Cultdom Collective, Luke Harrison from the Minute Doctor Who Podcast.
    Front row: Keith Dunn and Adam Purcell from Staggering Stories.

    The celebrity panels were, for me, less compelling than simply hanging out with the numerous other podcasters on hand.A That’s not meant as a slight on the guests as they were all very interesting people but in many ways I felt like I knew the other podcasters, it was like catching up with old friends!A Besides Tony and Jo (and the rest of the Staggering Stories team, of course!) I hadn’t ever actually met any of the others.A I doubt an outsider would have had any clue that was the case.

    For the most part I immediately recognised my fellow podcasters on sight – I’d seen their faces in pictures or videos.A Any doubt (still photos don’t always give a perfect representation) was immediately dispelled when I heard their voices.

    Steve Hatcher, who appeared to be the main driving force behind the Whooverville convention, invited us podcasters along for the express reason of getting us together on the stage for a Podcast Panel.A That was a masterstroke for getting us all together.A I think it is fair to say that no previous British event had brought together so many Doctor Who podcasters.A Fortunately he didn’t have any dastardly plan to wipe out a good percentage of the world’s Doctor Who podcasters – it would have been the perfect opportunity had he done so, though!

    Here we are on stage for the Podcasters Panel:

    Whooverville Podcast Panel 2009 (by kind permission of Jo Cummins)

    In the above photo (taken by podcaster Jo Cummins from The Flashing Blade) starting from the left we have -
    Back row: Tony Gallichan from The Flashing Blade, Michael from the Tin Dog Podcast, Karen Dunn and Adam Purcell from Staggering Stories, Marty Perrett from the Whocast and Box Room, Dave Cooper from Cultdom Collective, James Naughton from Podshock.
    Front row: Nat Titman from Bridging the Rift and Luke Harrison from the Minute Doctor Who Podcast.

    The podcast panel itself was lively and fun, at least from my point of view on the stage.A A very slight (surprisingly slight) trepidation accompanied me onto the stage but it was very quickly dispelled.A I’m hardly a natural public speaker but facing the onlooking crowds was a lot easier thanks the eight friends on stage with me.

    By the time all of us were up on stage and settled (squeezing 7 chairs on the small stage was not an easy task!) we had already spent about three minutes of our half hour time slot.A That left us with only about twenty-seven minutes to fill.A With seven and, when Nat and Luke quickly joined us (sans chairs!), soon nine of us on the stage it’s not hard to burn through such a short amount of time – most podcasters tend to easily fill an hour or two, rambling away each week!

    The podcast panel itself wasn’t quite what I’d expected.A I’d assumed it would be a round table affair, with a mic each or a series of mics along the table that picks us all up.A That wasn’t quite what we had, instead there were about three handheld mics that we were passing between us.A I’m not sure if that was a good or bad thing.A The downside being that it made the panel a little more stilted than it might otherwise have been.A On the plus side it stopped it getting too far out of hand and minimised any one person hogging things too much!A On balance, it was probably for the best!

    Let me wind things back to the previous evening, for a second.A It didn’t really all start on the train platform as six of us actually met up at the hotel the night before (one of which being Jo, who doesn’t appear in either of the photos above):

    A few podcasters gather the night before Whooverville 2009

    In the above photo (taken by myself) starting from the left we have -
    Tony Gallichan and Jo Cummings from The Flashing Blade, Jean Riddler, Karen Dunn and Keith Dunn from Staggering Stories.

    So, that was Whooverville 2009.A There is much more to be said about it.A Seek out all the podcasts mentioned above (especially their episodes directly after 6th September 2009) to hear more.A Fear yourself to tales of The Colin Baker meeting the Head of Pertwee and more!A Also seek out Staggering Stories Podcast 54 – ‘Hounds of the Whooverville’ for more of our Staggering thoughts on it.

    The attached audio file (MP3) features a few more words from me and, more importantly, the recording of the Podcast Panel I made on the day.A The background noise is a bit overpowering sometimes but hopefully it is nonetheless intelligible.A Enjoy!

    With news sorely lacking, the Three Who Rule were momentarily relieved to hide in the welcome shelter of a commentary, in this case the third and fourth instalments of "Arc of Infinity", a maudlin yarn notable more for IKEA furniture infesting Gallifrey than for an interesting story. But their welcome was short lived, as Cracklor once again besieged Warren and his computer more or less opted for suicide....much like Omega, as his Rice Krispie wounds boiled into nothingness. Poignancy ahead, dear listeners. Sheer poignancy.

    Bridging the Rift

    00:08 (GMT) - 12 Sep 2009

    We're joined by Tom Dickinson from The Cloister Room Podcast to discuss what canon is, where the term comes from, and whether the Doctor Who Universe has one, and if not why.

    We also hear your defence of Jon Pertwee's Third Doctor, look at classic series feedback and some extra special fan creativity.

    Knox's original essay: http://www.diogenes-club.com/studies.htm
    The Sacred Writings of Dr John H. Watson: http://www.librarything.com/work/2737484

    Next Time

    @ 1 hour 25 minutes 50 seconds - Next time we'll be discussing Doctor Who conventions and get togethers.

    The Cloister Room returns! No, it has not been canceled before its time, but this is an episode about television shows that were canceled before their time. The question at stake: Is it worth setting yourself up for disappointment by investing in a show that's already been canceled, or looks like it will be? The answer: Well, you'll just have to listen to find out! Also, the Dune quote of the week. Which is a bit of a misnomer, coming from a podcast that makes no claim to a weekly schedule.

    Elsewhere on the Internet:
    You can hear Tom as a guest panelist on episode 7 of Bridging the Rift (as soon as it's released anyway, I'll put a link to the episode here once it's out).

    And you can also hear Tom, singing! Tom has sort of started a Trock project called Blinovitch, and he sings a song about The Valeyard over at videobloggery. It's called "The Ultimate Foe".

    Fawlty Towers

    Join Meds and Kell as they talk about this fabulous British Comedy Fawlty Towers. Written and performed by John Cleese and Connie Booth, Fawlty Towers is now over 34 years old and still going strong. Only two series were made and its a formula that comedians such as Ricky Gervais have taken upon themselves to keep their own comedy fresh. Also starring Andrew Sachs and Prunella Scales the team created a wonderful programme that has never been beaten.

    The premise of the show is centred around Basil Fawlty played by Cleese a hotel owner who is dominated by his wife Sybil and has an amazing disregard for anyone who is below what he classes as 'the best class'. A fantastic comedy that is worth not only hearing about here but must be viewed to get the ultimate pleasure of Cleese and Booths writing.
