Hope you have some time over the next week or so, to join in and celebrate our 7th anniversary!

We are yet to upload our new TV/Movies section on the boards, but it will be coming soon….sorry for the delay.

We all had an amazing time with Team Barrowman at Supanova Sydney….we have loads to tell and fantastic pics to share also.

Hope to see you around the Forum at some stage.

Best, Ruthy.

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.

TW Miracle Day Convention – May 2015 / UK

Guest announcements to follow.

This time the Convention will be held at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel, Heathrow.

Torchwood Australia – Newsletter of updates

Hello folks,

Well here is a newsletter of what is coming up for TW Australia, and some other information that may interest you.

We have just completed our Easter Comp and announced our winner, being irishangel. Thank you to those who took the time to enter and better luck next time. Irish walked away with a TARDIS keyring + an Amazon gift voucher.

We will be rehashing the forum very soon, to incorporate our new TV/Movie section of individual programme boards, like for –
Sherlock
Star Trek
Star Wars
Downton Abbey
Marvel Universe (Thor/Iron Man etc)

To name just a few; there will be 10 new boards making up this section, and we are looking forward to some lively discussion amongst our members. Please remember, we are more than just about Torchwood, more than just about Doctor Who, so we will let you know when this new section is ready for your use, and it may cover an area that has had your recent interest.

Our anniversary is only a few weeks away – this is our 7th anniversary. At this point I would like to add that I believe we are the ONLY formal long running Torchwood Forum now available online. Yes there are a number of Facebook groups and pages, but our Forum appears to be the only ‘proper’ forum left (unfortunately the biggest/longest running one, the UK TW Forum, seems to have disappeared off the web). I would add that we have more than double our Forum membership within our FB Group, and more than triple our Forum membership in Twitter followers. With that in mind, I would like to invite those who are not Forum registered members to come over and check it out

Our Forum offers MUCH more than you will ever find on a FB group or page. The resources and areas like our exclusive cast/crew interviews are truly a testament to the hard work and energy that the admin team and fellow members have put into the Forum over the last 7 years. Now that we seem to be IT in the world of online forums for Torchwood, we would REALLY like to be IT. So, if you aren’t a forum member, please consider joining up – it is free to join, and we endeavour to offer you so much, for a free forum membership. And to those of you who are members and haven’t stopped by lately, come on over. We would REALLY like to bring the Forum back to a healthy number of members, with a healthy amount of chat going on also. AND if you have any friends/family who are TW/DW fans, send them over to the forum to check us out as well.

Our anniversary celebrations always include loads of fun and stuff happening, including our competitions and prizes. We will be sending out advices about the anniversary, in the coming weeks.

We are currently running a fundraiser on the Forum too, in relation to one of John Barrowman’s charities. If you look at the most recent post (last one) on this thread, you will get all the info there –

PLEASE NOTE there is a lucky draw attached to the fundraiser re any members that donate to the fundraising page, so check out all those details – for each pound/GBP donated, you get one entry into the draw.

So, that’s about it. Hope you are all doing well in your various locales. Remember we are a worldwide forum, not just Australian based, and we welcome fellow fans to our little home.

All the best,
Ruthy.

Hello everyone,

Well I’ve made it safely back to Australia after an incredible two weeks in the UK, celebrating the DW 50th Anniversary.

I will at some stage soon (I hope) be uploading a report of the event plus oodles of photos….it was just so much fun and sharing it with so many fans from all over the world was awesome!

For your info –

The final DW 50th Anniv Comp has been uploaded and also prizes have been announced for it –

Check out that thread for the details. These last monthly comps close on Sunday, so be quick if you are wanting to enter.

If you wish to comment on our Ep/s of the month club, please check out this thread for the info –

I am yet to comment on recent choices, and have the last three eps chosen to comment on…I watched those whilst in the UK.

Irishangel set a wonderful writing challenge for November –

Perhaps our writers would like to take a look and post there before we get into the silly season.

At some stage next week, we will be starting our Christmas celebrations, that means events, things to do, and of course our Christmas comps and prizes….an email will be sent to you with details or a link to the relevant thread containing all the details for you.

I think once we hit Christmas, the moderation team will be taking a well deserved rest – it has been a hell of a year all round, including such a huge one for DW….

Thanks for joining us over this amazing year of DW and more!

Cheers,
Evil Ruthy!

Loads AND Loads of updates……..

I just sent this massive email to the TA Forum members, and thought I would share all this news here on our main page as well…

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….
