The BBC's website has some made-for-internet stories. A new pre-Ecclesston ninth Doctor, played by Richard E. Grant, appears in the fortieth anniversary story, "Scream of the Shalka" (www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/webcasts/shalka/).

It was a little closer than it has been the past few times, but in the end the June 2019 pledge drive met its goal of $18,000, assuring that classic Doctor Who will be broadcast in western Washington for the rest of the year.
Hot on the heels of the animated reconstruction of "The Macra Terror" comes:
The 2019 Hugo nominations are out, and Doctor Who fans with ballots have a hard choice to make, as both "Rosa" and "Demons of the Punjab" were nominated for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form. They are up against two episodes of The Good Place, "Janet(s)" and "Jeremy Bearimy"; The Expanse episode "Abaddon's Gate"; and Janelle Monáe's album Dirty Computer. Also, Verity podcaster Lynne M. Thomas was nominated (alongside her husband Michael) for Best Professional Editor, Short Form. The complete list of nominees can be found on the WorldCon website. The Hugo Awards will be presented this year at Dublin 2019, August 15-19, in Ireland.
Old school fans who collected the novelizations of all the classic episodes, your collection is about to be completed! Eric Saward is writing novelizations of the last two stories. "Revelation of the Daleks" and "Revelation of the Daleks" will be out in hardback later this year, with paperbacks to follow in 2020.
The January 2019 Doctor Who pledge drive got off to a slow start, but in the end the goal was blown out of the water. Classic Doctor Who in western Washington is safe for another six months!
The New Year's special, "Resolution", will be the only Doctor Who we see in 2019, as the start of the next series is scheduled for 2020. But Jodie Whittaker and all of her Doctor's friends, and showrunner Chris Chibnall, are all coming back.
This year's Children in Need fundraiser set a new record, raising over £50.6 million to help children in both the United Kingdom and around the world. Part of that may have had to do with this profile of a special Doctor Who fan:
Derrick Sherwin, who worked as an assistant script editor and script editor in the late 1960s before transitioning to producer for "The War Games" and "Spearhead from Space", recently died. He was 82. To help ease the forthcoming transition to color and primarily Earhtbound stories, Sherwin wrote "The Invasion", creating UNIT and promoting Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart, a character from the previous year's "The Web of Fear", to a Brigadier. Sherwin also cast Jon Pertwee as the Doctor, and even has a small on-camera role as a hapless UNIT guard who fails to stop the Doctor from entering in "Spearhead from Space". Almost as soon as he began being a producer, however, he was transferred over to Paul Temple and Barry Letts took over Doctor Who.
In Big Finish news:
Sadly, the last Androgum, Chessene o' the Franzine Grig, has passed away. Jacqueline Pearce, the actress who played Chessene in "The Two Doctors" but best known to the world as Servalan on Blake's 7, died on September 3 from lung cancer. She was 74.
At the 2018 Saturn Awards, Doctor Who lost out in the two categories it was nominated in. The show lost Best Series to The Orville, and "Twice Upon a Time" was defeated for Best Presentation on Television to Twin Peaks: The Return. The complete list of winners and nominees is at saturnawards.org.
After nearly thirty years, we are branching out! Some of our more far-flung members have started the Tri-Cities Androgums in southeast Washington. If you are interested in finding out more, see their Facebook page here.
Too far north to see Doctor Who on KBTC? Maybe not any more! KBTC has announced that their signal now reaches Belligham, Vancouver, and Victoria. If you get over-the-air digital channels, retune your receiver to get channels 28.1 and 28.2, and you may be in for a very pleasant surprise every Saturday night at 7:00 p.m.
We have our own domain! So now androgums.org will be the place to come for all the latest on our little enclave of Seattle-area Doctor Who fandom. But the domain does cost us a little bit of money, so if you can help out with a donation, just click here:

The Emerald City Androgums are a fan club devoted to Doctor Who, and to having as much fun as unhumanly possible at our meetings. We meet every other month for an Androgum potluck. Members are encouraged to eat, drink, and be merry, and we watch whatever shows tickle our fancy. We try to include at least one selection of the good Doctor himself.
In addition to semi-regular parties, we also had a newsletter that tried to keep the more isolated-from-fandom members up-to-date on the latest Who happenings and rumors. It also served as a creative forum for any Androgum who felt like writing a story or drawing a picture.
The newsletter is no more, however, and all newsletter activities will soon move on-line. So if you want to contribute something, here's the place to do it!
We can scan art, so if you'd like to help us create an on-line Androgum gallery, please feel free to send the art to us!
And coming soon: Club T-shirts and aprons!
