The Gallifrey Chronicles

17th February 2011 • Blog Post by Ben Paddon •

Tomorrow is the opening day of Gallifrey One, one of the biggest Doctor Who conventions in the US, and this reporter (ha! – Ed.) will be there, phone and camera in tow, documenting the event for all seven of you. I’m just nice like that. I’ll be tweeting from the event, assuming I can get a signal, using the official URP! Twitter account, which almost never gets used for anything else, although a word of warning: I imagine I’ll be saying “fuck” on occasion.

You’ll be able to follow other, more general “coverage” of the convention on Twitter – virtually anything to do with the con is being tweeted under #gally, which seems as good a way as any of following what other, less URP!y people are experiencing at the con. There’s also the official Gallifrey One Twitter feed, on which I’ve learnt that a film crew from The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson will be in attendance during Saturday afternoon. Which is nice.

I’ll also be posting end-of-day reports on the blog, which will invariably involve discussion of costumes, panels, events, guests, and possibly other things. Hopefully they’ll be a little more prompt than last year’s efforts which, as you may recall, went up a couple of days after the event had actually finished.

Ben Paddon certainly isn’t here to help a malevolent entity to bring down the website. Ben writes and hosts PortsCenter, a webseries about video game ports that exists solely because someone once asked him if Doom on the PSone was any good. His favourite colour is mope.

    Hi, I know this isn’t especially relevant to this thread (tenuous link: Doctor Who community convention –> Doctor Who community MMORPG), but thought you guys might be interested anyway:
