David Tennant's Trainers

Seriously, there's an outrageous amount of running involved.

When I was at Gallifrey in February, I asked Paul McGann to give my son a Doctor’s note for missing school.  Recently, I missed two days of work to go to Comicpalooza in Houston to see four Doctors.  So I thought, why not?

Here are my Doctor’s notes for missing work from Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann.  (Yes, I really, really gave the first Paul McGann autograph to my son’s teacher.)

Paul McGann remembered me from LA and was delighted when I showed him the 8,000+ hits on tumblr the original post received.  He also told me that prior to my request, none of the Doctors remembered being asked for a Doctor’s note but since then, all of them have received at least one request.

Wish me luck- I’m on a mission to get them all, now.

A Rare Opportunity to See All the Living Classic Doctors, Save One…

Comicpalooza just announced that not only will Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann be attending the convention in Houston May 23-26, but Peter Davision will also be there as well!  This is a rare chance stateside to see all the living Classic Who Doctors at once, save, of course, Tom Baker.

In addition to Doctors Five through Eight, they will also have John Barrowman (who I would be excited to see all by himself) and Neve McIntosh who plays Madame Vastra, and James Masterson who, among his many geek credits, appeared in Torchwood.  (Sorry, I know he’s been in tons more noteworthy things, but I’m DW focused, here.)

In addition, they offer a Time Lord VIP pass, in advance only, for $235, which includes the following:

    • Autograph for Colin Baker
    • Autograph for Sylvester McCoy
    • Autograph for Paul McGann
    • Autograph for John Barrowman
    • Half hour early entry to the exhibit halls
    • Priority seating at Doctor Who-related panels and Q&As (this is not reserved seating; it is first-in-line priority)
    • Line jump for autographs and photo ops for Doctor Who guests.


(Peter Davison is not included because he was a late addition to the program, but guys- really!  This is a great deal as it is, as it’s only $8 more per day than the regular VIP Pass at the door.)

This is a totally volunteer, fan-run, non-big corporate convention, and they’re taking a big chance on including so many Doctor Who guests.  These guys spend months- years, even- of their lives planning and organizing this, and they don’t make a penny from it.  They want to make this a Doctor Who friendly event with a proven track record of bringing in crowds so that in the future, they can point to their success and prove that an audience exists for DW in order to bring in more New Who guests.  Let’s prove to them that the audience exists outside LA and the corporate conventions so that we can enjoy more DW guests stateside.

The group I’m involved with will be there and we’ll be bringing our TARDIS as well as hosting three panel discussions on Doctor Who.  Come and share the Whovian joy!

While the rest of the cast of Star Wars seem to have been able to move forward with their careers, Chewbacca has fallen on hard times, indeed.

The Song of my People

So I’m standing in the bookstore this afternoon, minding my own business, perusing the graphic novels, when - for the barest fraction of a second - my heart flooded with indescribable hope and joy.  A moment later, I was inconsolably depressed when I realized the sound of the TARDIS landing was coming from a cookie jar someone had opened the next aisle over.

Based on this scale, my life rates about a 2 and that’s just because I have a laptop and Wi-Fi.

Sitting at Main Event while my son and his friend do their 7th round of Laser Tag, as I pass the time writing smutty DW fanfic on my phone.

I sincerely wonder if this is what Steve Jobs ever envisioned people doing when Apple created the iPhone.

My son’s teacher is a Whovian and he missed three days of school to go to Gallifrey One this year. If you miss more than two days, you need a doctor’s note or the absence is unexcused. This is his Doctor’s note. It definitely will not be the one she’s expecting.

UPDATE:  Alton’s third grade teacher was thrilled- she fangirled around the whole grade level, showing it off to the other teachers and students, but the absences stood. It was still worth every single minute we were there.  I only wish I’d thought to have gotten her Arthur Darvill’s autograph on a picture of him in his scrubs instead of the Last Centurion.  Then I could have given her a Nurse’s note, too.
