This past weekend marked the 23rd Gallifrey One convention in Los Angeles and, once again, we attended the festivities with hopes of bringing the fun to those of our listeners who could not make it. We were a bit more successful this year than last year (which was more like The Lost Weekend than a Doctor Who convention), and on Saturday night we hosted an impromptu "live recording" in our room. Free booze was provided, thus attendance was somewhat decent.
Our guests included our own roving reporter Andre Tessier (@AndreT_NY), Paul and Pete of The Pharos Project podcast (@KungFuYoda and @beastmasterpete respectivley), Nicole (@boozeleprechaun), Sarah (@sourcitruslady), Melissa (@Bellaira), John (Twitter handle unknown at this time, but we bet he has one), our friend Bob from Houston, and our hotel neighbors Miranda and Sam who came crossplaying as the Seventh Doctor and Ace.
In the coming months we hope to present you with a bit more that we collected from Gallifrey, but for now sit back and relax and listen to our impressions of the first two days.
Facebook, GetGlue, blah blah blah, you know the drill. Follow us on Twitter at @tardistavern and @tardistaverntit and, as a result of our activities throughout the weekend, we will accept process of service via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

On this very, very special of The TARDIS Tavern, we confront Steve once again with his biggest Doctor Who fear: The Third Doctor! We are joined by our good friends Chris Burgess of Radio Free Skaro and podcast newcomer Erika (known for those of you on Twitter as @HollyGoDarkly). We examine not just one but three (yes, three!) Third Doctor stories: "Terror of the Autons," "The Curse of Peladon," and "The Time Warrior."
Those of you that are longtime listeners may notice that this is one of our longest episodes ever! And after an hour and a half of recording (plus half an hour of pre-show cocktails), some people can hold their liquor better than others. It truly does mark the anniversary of Gallifrey 22! So pull up a pitcher or a cuppa, light a fire or a cigarette, and enjoy...our Pertwee Extravaganza!
