Hello! I've definitely fallen in love with the Classic Doctors and I'm glad to find a comm that concentrates on them. Here's a couple of short fics I wrote when I first tumbled into the Who fandom. Enjoy!
Title: Variations on a Theme
Starring: Jo Grant and Doctors 3, 4 and 6
Rating: All Ages
Genre: Het, hurt/comfort, humor
Plot: What is a naturally chilly space alien to do when a blast from his past comes down with heat exhaustion? Jo and the Sixth Doctor find out. (Not like that. Well, maybe a teeny bit like that. Note the rating.)
Author's Notes: Many thanks go out to rude_not_ginger, philosophercat and merlinsseer for their beta skills. Also, I wrote this before learning that Jo becomes aware of the concept of multiple Doctors in 'The Three Doctors.' Oooops. Well, this is how she finds out in the Singe-verse!
Title: Long Leggity Beasty
Starring: Sarah Jane and the 4th Doctor
Genre: Het, humor, horror
Plot: A Halloween story! This is set the October after the Doctor abruptly leaves Sarah Jane behind in Aberdeen. His return leaves her feeling somewhat drained. (Yes, vampire AU. After 'Vampires of Venice' I thought it'd be timely.)
Author's Notes: The 'Spooky' poem is by Bobbi Katz. 'Antigonish' (aka The Man Who Wasn't There) is by Hughes Mearns. The movie Sarah Jane quotes is 1951's 'The Thing.' The other verses are by unknown authors.
TimeGate is the annual Doctor Who
(and Stargate and more!) convention in Atlanta, GA, USA. This year it's happening over the Memorial Day weekend again, May 28th through May 30th. Among the Doctor Who
guests are Paul Kasey
, who has portrayed many monsters on Doctor Who
, and The Sarah Jane Adventures
, including Ood Sigma
; and Dominic Glynn
, who composed music for Doctor Who
during the Sixth and Seventh Doctors' eras. Also appearing is Louis Robinson, who worked on many BBC TV programs, including Doctor Who
in the Third Doctor's era.

In the midst of the run-up to the showing tomorrow of The Eleventh Hour
, here's some old-school news:http://gallifreynewsbase.blogspot.com/2010/04/rare-doctor-who-photos-found.html
Over a dozen never before published colour photos from the filming of the 1967 Doctor Who story The Abominable Snowmen
have been discovered, and will be featured in the forthcoming limited edition version of Deborah Watling's autobiography 'Daddy's Girl' from Fantom Publishing.....
Fantom are the same folks who put out Mary Tamm's autobio.
TimeGate is the Atlanta, GA, USA Doctor Who, Stargate, and more
convention, that takes place every year over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. This year that's May 28-30, 2010 at the Holiday Inn Select Atlanta Perimeter, close to the MARTA station at Perimeter Mall. For those flying in, there's a direct MARTA train to this stop. For those driving, the hotel is directly off I-285 (the north side).
Two of the Doctor Who
guests are Andrew Cartmel and Dominic Glynn.

I do not own Doctor Who.Summary:
It didn't seem like it could get any weirder.
Hello fellow Who fans!
I'm currently looking for a Who mood theme for my journal. Have a lot of idea in mind of what kind of mood theme I am looking for, so I'll just list them.
♥ Tenth Doctor
♥ Tenth Doctor/Rose
♥ Sarah Jane
♥ Fourth Doctor
♥ Fifth Doctor
If you know where I can locate a mood theme for any of the above, please give me the link so I can check it out!
I also apologize that I am going to bombard your f-lists with this post. I just want to get a many answers as I can.
And Mods, if this is not appropriate, just delete it.
P.S. I prefer an animated theme, but stills are cool too.

We would like to thank everyone who attended the Brittrack costume panel at Dragoncon this year. :) The Valdosta room was full, even though Terry Gilliam was scheduled opposite us. And thanks to everyone who came in costume, although we couldn't get to everyone for Show'n'Tell. Myself, the panel moderator, and Andy, head of the Prydon Academy (the DW costume parade group) are talking about a double panel, where we will spend half the time on info and Q&A, and the other half on a Fashion Show (not a Costume Contest). You can write to the Brittrack staff supporting the idea at the site: http://www.brittrack.org
Don't forget that you can join the Prydon Academy ( we're more than just a Dragoncon parade group, but also a growing costume resource that will soon be working hand-in-hand with dw_cosplay
) at http://www.prydonacademy.com/forum/index.php
For those of you who want to comment in a general fashion about Dragoncon, there is this post on dragoncon
for reviews and complaints. http://community.livejournal.com/dragoncon/2187113.html#comments
Please go there and make your voice heard!
The British SF Media track at Dragoncon (or Brittrack, as it's nicknamed) will be hosting a panel for any and all costumers of British SF & fantasy media, whether it's Doctor Who, UFO, Blake's Seven, Robin Hood, Torchwood, The Tomorrow People, The Sarah Jane Adventures, or what have you. :)
Please attend in costume or bring a costume for presentation or just attend to pick up tips and tricks. We'll be mostly discussing costuming, but we also have an expert on the panel who has knitted many Fourth Doctor scarves. If you have knitted and/or are knitting a Fourth Doctor scarf or a Boomtown!Rose scarf, bring it along. :)
If you can attend the panel, just let us know by replying here, esp. if you are wearing or presenting a costume, let us know about the costume as well. :)
At the moment, and hopefully this will not change, the costume panel will be at 4 PM, Saturday, Sept. 5th, 2009, in the usual Brittrack place, the Valdosta Room, at the Sheraton Hotel.
Dragoncon takes place Sept. 4th - 7th, 2009, in Atlanta, GA, USA. http://www.dragoncon.org
The Brittrack has Eric Roberts (the Master in the Doctor Who TV-movie) and Gareth David-Lloyd (Ianto Jones in Torchwood
) as guests, as well as Terry Gilliam and many other wonderful guests. http://www.brittrack.org
See you at Dragoncon!
This will hopefully be the last Sunday that we will be meeting, and we should be back to the third Saturday of the month starting in September. :)
We meet at the Doraville Civic Center, just north of Atlanta, GA, near the intersection of I-85 N and Buford Highway. Please see the website, http://www.atlantagallifreyans.org/
, for directions. The Doraville MARTA station is half-a-block away. And, as always, please bring food and drink to share. All Doctor Who and Torchwood fans are welcome!
