Hello everyone,

Well we felt we’d better give everyone a head’s up as there seems to be loads going on and coming up, especially with the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary approaching fast.

1. DW 50th Anniversary October Comps – we have opened this thread here >>>

and I will say, the prize is utterly gorge! In fact, I’d even be bold enough to say that all or most Whovians would love one of these! This is a beautiful prize so get participating in the monthly comps for your chance to win this. November comps will be extra special too, being our final month of Anniversary comps, and the prize will include merchandise from the official 50th Anniversary Convention being held in London.

2. We have two awesome episodes nominated for our Ep of the Month Club – make sure you check those out before we head into November for our Matt Smith tribute >>>

3. Irish has opened a magic writing challenge for October, dedicated to TEN!

Have a go at contributing to this month’s writing challenge. Open to all members!

4. We are HOPING to have a very Special Who Guest join us for a live Q&A prior to the 50th Anniversary – if we can get this organised, you will be the first to know about it. Stay tuned for that!

5. Our ABC network in Australia really is getting into the 50th Anniversary spirit – if you check out this thread for the latter posts, you will see the ABC media releases I have uploaded there >>>

6. Torchwood in Australia – the lovely Channel Eleven have been revisiting our beloved Torchwood – they are currently up to S2 Ep 7 Dead Man Walking, which will be shown this Monday night. Plus they have the two previous eps on their catch up video on the internet. Certainly wonderful to see Torchwood on our telly boxes!

7. Torchwood in the UK – a Torchwood Con is occurring in the UK in April 2014 – more here >>>

They had announced recently that Burn Gorman would also be there, but he has since cancelled unfortunately.

8. In baby news :) Eve Myles is expecting again – yay…..a sibling is on its way for Matilda. Also, John Barrowman has become a great uncle, with Clare having given birth to a bouncing baby boy.

9. TA – December – of course December wouldn’t be December without Christmas comps – these will be announced in the early part of December, plus a few Christmas activities as well. So yes folks we are pretty busy right up until the end of this year!

10. Public Interviews – not long ago we uploaded the Expedition Movie interviews, and they are a really good read – check them out here >>>

They now only have a few short hours to smash their campaign total of 5000 GBP, so if you are wanting one of their wonderful perks, check out the campaign here but be very very quick!

Finally, your fearless leader is off to the UK in November for a couple of weeks; included activities of course are the DW 50th Anniversary Con weekend in London, and viewing the 50th Anniversary episode somewhere along the line, PLUS I’ve managed to get a ticket to see David Tennant in Richard II at Stratford-Upon-Avon – very much looking forward to that.

So folks, if you haven’t visited the Forum for awhile, I suggest you come over and check it out, especially our latest comp thread and beautiful prize up for grabs.

Take care all.

Evil Ruthy….

Our upcoming Anniversary and more…..

Hello to all our Members and Guests,

This month is our Anniversary celebration – 6 years since Torchwood Australia began….woo hoo!

You can find our Anniversary intro here >>>

AND

We should be uploading an interview shortly too, with a well known Who/TW writer (eps, audio books, short stories) – if not in time for our Anniversary celebrations, should be shortly thereafter.

We are still celebrating all things Who, in this its 50th anniversary year, but our 6th Anniversary week will be very Torchwood focussed!

That all said, yes our Monthly Who comps are still running, and we have put up the June Comp thread here, with fantastic prizes yet again (something one off/hand made) >>>

Our monthly writing challenges are still chugging along nicely (and there will be an Anniversary challenge set as well), so have a look over on this board for more info >>>

We’re still running our Doctor Who “Eps of the Month” – please check that out and perhaps revisit some of your favourite episodes >>>

The biggest news of today is of course about Matt Smith’s resignation….more on this board >>>

So there you have it guys…..remember, to access our EXCLUSIVE competitions and cast/crew interviews, you need to be a registered member on the Forum, link below >>>

Once our Anniversary is out of the way, I will be heading to Sydney for Supanova (woo hoo) – of course the gorgeous Eve Myles and Kai Owen are visiting us for this Con (in Sydney AND Perth), so I am very much looking forward to seeing them again, meeting up with some old friends, and meeting some of my online friends who I am yet to meet face to face….should be brilliant.

All the best everyone – hope you can join us for our Anniversary week.

Cheers!
