Can you help? If you can, please do….

So it comes as no great surprise that Kai and Eve are trying to assist someone in need. They are a pair of ‘good eggs’ which is why we love them so!

If you can spare a donation, please click on the link below – also, please read Dewi’s story so you may have a very small appreciation of what this family is going through.

Please share the link with your family and friends via FB, Twitter, Email etc. The more the word is spread, the more chance of getting to that goal.

And if you have any fundraising ideas, please feel free to put them forward.

Whatever you can do to help will be massively appreciated by Dewi and his family.

Many thanks.

Moving forward – major updates….

Hello friends and members,

We’ve had to make some major changes to the way we operate our online presence during 2015.

Unfortunately the Administration team finds itself rather overtaken by real life, in other words, it is getting increasingly harder for us to maintain the Forum in its current format.

Also, in regards to my own situation, I am going to be away overseas and within Australia quite a lot this year….overall, I will be away from home around 9 weeks in total. This too creates issues for me regarding my participation in Forum/Torchwood Aust life.

So, at this point in time, we have decided to take a step back from our traditional Forum. Members and guests will still be able to access the Forum, and view all posts to date, and of course Members will still have access to the exclusive area where our interviews are uploaded. BUT, only the administration/moderators will be able to post to the Forum boards.

Our main website page (yes this one) will remain operational for updates, and our main online presence will be via Facebook (and to a lesser degree Twitter and our Flickr group).

We have quite a large membership on Facebook now, so we would love to see a LOT more interaction by our group members there, and plenty of chatter etc.

We will still run competitions online, but haven’t nutted out yet in what format; initially it may just be via the Facebook group, but may incorporate posts on the Forum itself – we will sort that out as we go along.

We are still alive, we are still Torchwood Australia, that is all still the same….but we realise that Members are busy too, like the Administration, and at this point we feel this is the best move forward.

At some point, we may or will reactivate the Forum again, for you to post to.

I have now been involved with Torchwood Australia for close to 8 years, and that has taken a great deal of commitment to run the website and forum for 7 years of that time. But it is something I feel very passionate about, otherwise it probably wouldn’t have been around for this long.

In 2016, TW celebrates its 10th anniversary since it first aired in the UK, and in 2017 we celebrate our own 10th anniversary – I would love to see us still around for that, but only time will tell.

Feel free to contact the administration by the various means, if you have any queries about what is going on.

We hope to still see you around, we love to interact with you all, and we hope you still want to be a part of Torchwood Australia.

All the best to you!

Cheers, Ruthy (aka EvilRuthy) :)

2015 – what are we up to?

Hello there,

Well, we’ve decided to cut back on our Forum boards. The main reason being we’ve had a few issues with our web provider, and a few technical glitches, so this kind of pushed the Administration to decide to return the Forum back to its core purpose, being Torchwood and Doctor Who. We feel there a more than enough avenues on the W.W.W. for all the other stuff we’ve been accommodating over the years, and we know a LOT of members simply don’t have time for forum life these days, other than a quick hello, howdy do, and so it was felt we needed to simplify the forum again.

You will see there are a lot less areas on the Forum now, and yes we are restricting discussion to Torchwood and Doctor Who, and whatever the actors/crew are up to these days, so yes chatter about Barrowman in Arrow is quite ok (on the appropriate board/s), but there won’t be the more general discussions about all the other shows/productions/movies etc that we used to share.

We’re sorry if this is a disappointment to any of you, but we felt the time had come to go back to our roots.

We realise that Torchwood isn’t currently in production, but with word of new radio plays coming up, we indeed hope for some revitalised chatter about our favourite Sci Fi show.

We will be incorporating news of any upcoming events both here and overseas, we will also try to get some new interviews happening during the year, and also will host a few comps for you to participate in.

We hope you can come join us over on the forum for a bit of DW/TW chatter, and also please remember that we are over on Facebook and Twitter as well.

Hope to see you around my friends.

All the best,
Ruthy & the team

Celebrations and more …

Hello friends,

Well our 7th anniversary is approaching fast, this Sunday in fact :)

Due to a number of us being in Sydney for Supanova next weekend, we are only STARTING our anniversary events from Monday 16 June, and they will be finishing on Sunday 22 June.

Included in our celebrations will be a number of competitions for you to participate in, with some fantastic prizes up for grabs.

So make sure you come online to the forum for the anniversary events.

We are also endeavouring to upload our changes to the forum in coming days, which are predominantly related to our new section for a variety of TV Shows/Movies, and we hope you will check those out once they go live.

If you see Caroline and I at Supanova Sydney, please come and say hi….obviously the main attraction for us is John Barrowman, but of course there are heaps of things on over the weekend, plus catching up with good friends as well.

See you all for anniversary week guys.

Cheers.
