Gallifrey One 2015

guestlistjan2015d

Heading to the world’s largest and longest running annual fan-run Doctor Who convention, Gallifrey One, this weekend! This year’s guest list has a great mix of new and classic series names, as well as nearly the entire main cast of Torchwood! I’m hoping to run into some listeners, record some full and mini-episodes, nerd out about my favorite sci-fi show ever, and most of all, HAVE FUN! I’ll be posting lots of pics next week. This year should be a hoot!

NOTE: Gallifrey One 2015 sold out in April, 2014, but there’s always next year if you don’t have a ticket.
