The 26 Seasons of Gallifrey One, the 2015 version of North America's pre-eminent Doctor Who convention, is in the books, and John and Will return for one last recap.  They'll discuss the weekend - what they liked, what they wish they'd seen, podcasts they did and will be doing - everything in general.  Join them for a quick burst back through the excitement of Gally!


NOTE: This was recorded on Friday afternoon; shortly thereafter, John and his wife learned of the passing of her mother.  Deepest condolences go out to his wife V, John, and their entire family.  V's mom was a nice lady and well-loved; she'll be missed.

Will and John talk to Sage from Head Over Feels about how female writers could change Doctor Who, overall female representation on the show and her panel on that subject. Also, shout outs to Eve Myles, Burn Gorman and whether John Barrowman could survive a sex harassment suit in the States (spoiler alert, he can't). 


Apologies for the sound quality as we talk outside the hotel holding GallifreyOne, the premier Doctor Who con in the world.

Will and John talk with Deb Stanish of the Verity podcast and Alyssa Franke of WhovianFeminism Twitter and Tumblr about their experiences at GallifreyOne, their views on Doctor Who and fandom in general. We're in the outside lounge area, so ambient noise and drunken revelry happens. (Not that we've been drinking.)

Will and John talk about their Saturday at GallifreyOne, the best Doctor Who convention in North America. We talk about our favorite moments and what we're looking forward to for the rest of the weekend.

Will and John stage an interview with Gennette (in her first GallifreyOne in several years) and Darin (at his first Doctor Who convention ever) at the pool at LAX Marriott. But this is a ruse- listen as John and Will stall until Darin asks Gennette to marry him. Will she say yes? Only one way to find out.

Will and John are joined by Kelly from the TVMouse blog, and Kim from Headoverfeels in front of the hotel for the GallifreyOne convention, the best Doctor Who convention in North America. We discuss their panel on the role of Clara Oswald in this last season of Doctor Who as well as other events from Day One of the convention.

MUTTER'S SPIRAL Podcast 87 - GALLIFREY ONE - 2015 Preview

It's almost time for GALLIFREY ONE - the 26th (like the show!) edition of the premier Doctor Who US fan gathering, and MUTTER'S SPIRAL Podcast is here to preview the entire weekend and, well, just squee giddily for 45 minutes!  

We'll talk about the various panels and guests we're excited to see, AND, we'll tell you about the many great FAN panels, including one that will include JOHN himself (Doctor Who - Remember When? - Sunday, 10 AM, Program D).  Of course, there's another John (BARROWMAN!) there on the weekend (and up against our John, no less!) as well as the wondrous and amazing ALEX KINGSTON.  SO - Captain Jack AND River Song - plus, tons of other guests both Doctor Who (20th & 21st century) and Torchwood (including Eve Myles, Naoko Mori AND Burn Gorman!) and even other areas of entertainment!

Also, we'll talk about the fan panels that include John as well as Kim & Sage of, former guests on the show, and lots of our other friends.  

We'll also give an overview for those who are going to their first Gally One; wax rhapsodically about the food at Champions Sports Bar (Fish & Chips, please); and just have warm feelings about going back "home" for the weekend.  Plus, we'll give tips on finding us at Gally One - there's a free beverage in it for you!

Please take a listen - and, also, please humbly and gratefully accept our thanks for downloading and listening.  It's our pleasure to bring this to you.
