Want to see some of the websites shown or mentioned in the show, or that are otherwise part of the show?

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/). The sixth Doctor meets up with the Cybermen in "Real Time" (www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/webcasts/realtime/). The made-for-Internet version of "Shada," featuring Paul McGann as the Doctor, Lalla Ward as Romana, and John Leeson as K-9, is back, and can be found at www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/webcasts/shada/.


News:

The June 2024 Doctor Who pledge drive on KBTC was another success, raising over $27,000 to easily beat the $20,000 goal. Broadcasts of classic Doctor Who in western Washington are safe for another six months.

William Russell, the actor who played companion Ian Chesterton in the first two series of Doctor Who, passed away on June 4, 2024, at the age of 99. He was an in-demand actor in movies, television, and radio for over seventy years. In recent years, he reprised the part of Ian on audio for Big Finish, and appeared in a cameo in the 2013 docudrama about the creation of the show, An Adventure in Space and Time. His appearance as Ian in a cameo in Jodie Whittaker's final story, "The Power of the Doctor", set a new world record for the longest time between appearances on camera for a character played by the same actor.

Oh, look, a new trailer!

We now know when the next season of Doctor Who will start:

Even more interesting, however, is that it will drop on iPlayer in the UK first, at midnight that morning, before it's shown on BBC One that evening. At the same time it goes out on iPlayer, it will also drop on Disney+ around the world. Because of time differences, we'll actually get to see it on the west coast at 4:00 pm on May 10! As if that weren't enough, there will be two episodes that day!

The January 2024 Doctor Who pledge drive on KBTC smashed through its $20,000 goal by raising well over $31,000! Needless to say, classic Doctor Who is safe for another six months.

The Collection, the blu-ray sets of the classic serios, has announced its latest release:

Richard Franklin, the actor who played Captain Mike Yates opposite Jon Pertwee's Doctor, passed away early Christmas morning at the age of 87.

Want to see a teaser for the new season, coming in May of 2024? Of course you do!

Coming this Christmas:

So what's the next missing story that's going to get an animated recreation? After "The Giggle", what else would it be?

Thanks to Children in Need, we have a new adventure with our new Doctor, a week before his official debut. Take a look:

We also get a peek behind the curtain with the first, abbreviated edition of the new behind-the-scenes show Doctor Who Unleashed:

The next entry in The Collection (blu-ray season sets of classic Who) has been announced. Well, what else was it going to be for an anniversary year?

This trailer is so big it even has its own behind-the-scenes featurette!

KBTC is now streaming live online! If you live in the viewing area, but can't get the station over the air or via your local provider, go to www.pbs.org/livestream/, and you can then watch the channel!

With PBS recently turning fifty, CBS Sunday Morning did a profile. You may recognize some of the people seen during a fundraiser about ninety seconds in. Here's the link to the piece.

A lost Doctor Who episode is back—but it wasn't found. Students and staff at the University of Central Lancashire recreated the 1965 episode, "Mission to the Unknown", a Doctor-less episode that served as a teaser for "The Daleks' Masterplan" (and a way to fill out the recording block when they ran an episode short, without having to pay the regulars more). You can view it here:

And for a look behind the scenes, including some special visitors:

The latest news about the new show can be found at Doctor Who News (as you might expect).


Who are The Emerald City Androgums?

Picture: Spam! Spam! Spam!

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!
