Peter Davison and Steven Moffat Videos From Gallifrey One 2010

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

As I mentioned in my last post, since I wasn’t able to attend the recent Gallifrey One Doctor Who convention in LA, I’m living vicariously by posting some of the great videos which Doctor Who fans at the con have been sharing with the world.

The latest two are recordings of videos they played on the convention screens, so the picture and sound quality isn’t the best. The first one is a greeting from new showrunner Steven Moffat to the fans attending the convention — this one was shared almost immediately online, unlike the second one. (Note: the first video is a Flickr video and won’t work without Flash, unfortunately. It was the only copy of the video I could find after a pretty exhaustive search)

Doctor Who Gallifrey One Brigadier Skit “The Unsung Hero”

Monday, March 8th, 2010

During the Gallifrey One convention held in Los Angeles in February of 2010, I was following the Gally discussion via the TARDIS Databanks Twitter account and noticed a lot of  mentions of this Doctor Who sketch put on during the masquerade.

I also heard a lot of people praising this guy throughout the weekend on his spectacular Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart costume which you see featured during the skit.

Check out the full (and very funny) skit “The Unsung Hero” from the Gallifrey One Doctor Who convention in February 2010:

5 Gallifrey One Dalek Videos

Sunday, March 7th, 2010

I wasn’t able to make it to this year’s Gallifrey One convention in Los Angeles, but I lived vicariously and somewhat enviously through people tweeting during the convention weekend.

I decided I’d collect some of the videos from the con here on the TARDIS Databanks so some of the best are gathered in one place  and help others live vicariously too.

To get the ball rolling, I thought I’d share a few videos of a fan-made Dalek that was roaming the halls of the LAX Mariott. I’d love to have seen the thing up close (heck, I’d love to OWN the thing!) – it looks amazing from the videos. And clearly, the fan operating it was having a blast, too.
