Ribbons have been ordered and there is a possibility the video will have an encore showing in the main ballroom sometime later in the weekend after our Friday morning premiere. This is in addition to the showing in Erin’s room.
Our multi-month-long project is ready for Galliffrey! The test on the big projector was a success last night. It is in the can and we’re ready to tell the world about our premiere project for…
Five & Dime Fangirls – Doctor Who fangirls on a mission to honor their men!
Brought to you by Kristen Roach & yours truly. Our first video mash-up is premiering at Gallifrey in 10 DAYS! We are on the program Friday, February 18th at 1:00 pm. We are working on a little goodie/gift for everyone who attends. Come and share in the fun!
Don’t think I’ll be able to survive sitting 8 hours at work today without getting up every hour to stretch my poor, abused back. Fried my brain working hours and hours yesterday on Adobe Flash for our Who Crack video for Gallifrey, but MAN, did it come out AMAZING looking! The special “countdown” opening and surprise credits sequence premiered to a cheering crowd of the household denizens, Kristen and her BF Chris Mitchell (who has now been upgraded to a “husband” status in our end credits, lol!). Crossing my fingers it looks good on the beta run Kristen and I are doing tonight. If it does, I will be blitzing Facebook, LiveJournal and Twitter with teasers right up until the big day of our world premiere on Gallifrey Friday.
It’s a little dark, but I was so glad this turned out as well as it did. How thoughtful of Peter to send this to the convention in his absence!
Dennis and I always love this convention…oh my goodness. How could I not adore it when I met Peter Davison (my favorite Doctor) in 1995 at The Six Wives of Gallifrey One? Getting the chance to talk to him, one-on-one, for several minutes while no one else was around, launched my interest in finally sitting down and taking another go at understanding a show that had left me very confused and disinterested when viewing it back in my childhood.
Okay, yes, this used to be embarassing to admit, but I didn’t understand British humor until I was in my 30s. It was only because Peter was so incredibly nice and sweet and gentle that I got intensely interested in watching the show. He was so much like my husband, Dennis, that the instant linking to the persona behind the 5th Doctor was completely natural.
That was why I wasn’t worried at all about his beautful daughter, Georgia Moffett, being anything but a reflection of her father. This being her first convention, she said in the closing ceremonies that she had a marvelous time and the fans were wonderful and awesome and fantastic and she thoroughly enjoyed her first Gallifrey experience. Between Dennis and I, we have wonderful memories of her relating her experiences of being the daughter of parents who were both actors, (Her father: “You will always be broke and starve if you become an actor.”), which she said gratefully has not been the case thus far. When acting with her father, upon the director wanting her character to be more flirty with Peter, she replied, “I can’t do that…he’s my father!” Good for her! And two of the most touching things he said to her were, 1. about being in Doctor Who, “It’s your turn now, kiddo.”, and 2. when acting with her, he said he doesn’t always see the women she has become, but sees, “his little girl”. This is the beauty in the heart of the man I have come to adore as my favorite Doctor, that place challenged only by David Tennant, and then, it is a neck-and-neck race.
This being the case, you can only imagine my glee and joy when the Children in Need special, “Time Crash”, aired. If you haven’t seen it, or are wondering who Peter Davison is and was he a good Doctor, let me answer those by directing you to this YouTube video of that very special special:
An awesome Gallifrey this year, with great costumes of Timelords:
A fantastic cosplay of Sally Sparrow and a Weeping Angel from the Tennant episode, “Blink”, a HUGELY popular and scary episode, ranking among the cream of the best of the crop of his era so far:
Am soooo looking forward to next year’s Gallifrey when Peter Davison will be back and we have had the first year of the new Matt Smith Doctor. We also got to preview the brand new trailer for his era:
He already looks promising, though the outfit does look like he mugged a schoolteacher…*sigh* Guess they all can’t be dressed as hot as David Tennant.
