Leela, Far From Primitive: An Interview with Louise Jameson

Christmas has been successfully navigated- nailed it!  Today, I’ve been on Facebook and Twitter talking to readers about the geekiest gifts we all got.  I received a TARDIS hat along with bantha and tauntaun plushies.  The most relevant gift to this blog, though, was a remote flash for my camera.  My cosplay photography is going to be...

The Fifth Doctor, Rebooted: An Interview with Peter Davison

I’m on-record as saying this, but I’ll say it again: I loved The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot FAR more than the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special.  This short film, featuring Doctors Five, Six, Seven, and Eight, is a love letter to the fans.  So many characters!  So many references!  So many things that deserved to be...

This GEEKend: WolfCon and Chicago TARDIS

Happy Thanksgiving, geeks!  I woke up early to write so that I could make it out to my parents’ house later.  I have the Macy’s parade and subsequent dog show on TV- just two of many annual traditions. The Chicago geek community has two Thanksgiving traditions of its own: WolfCon and Chicago TARDIS.  Both are... Read more »

Doctor Who, Daleks, and Big Finish: An Interview with Nicholas Briggs

What comes to mind when you hear the words “Doctor Who“?  For most, the iconic aliens top the list.   Daleks.  Cybermen.  Their threats of “EXTERMINATE,” “UPGRADE,” and “OBEY” have resonated with fans for decades. The talented Nicholas Briggs has voiced the Daleks and Cybermen since Doctor Who’s 2005 return.  Briggs is also the Executive Producer of... Read more »

Chicago TARDIS 2012 Recap: This Doctor Who Con is the Real McCoy!

EXTERMINATE!!  I got to ride inside of these once.  It was... well, it was very small.
Thank you, everyone, for the huge response to my Kollision Con coverage.  Kollision wasn’t the only game in town on Thanksgiving weekend, though!  Hundreds of Doctor Who fans gathered for Chicago TARDIS 2012.  The British sci-fi hit is more popular than ever in its 49th year.  Thus, the Westin Lombard welcomed fans of all ages...
