Bridging the Rift
Description:
The Doctor Who Universe fandom is wide, diverse and vibrant, but it's split into enclaves; be it 'old fandom' or new, LiveJournal or forums, Torchwood or Doctor Who, and the many different types of creative pursuits. Briding The Rift is a podcast that hopes to bring the Doctor Who Universe fandom together. We'll be highlighting and discussing hot topics and debates; trying to see all sides of the argument and hopefully coming to some conclusions. We'll also be exploring the fandom's creative pursuits, helping you to find the best Doctor Who, Torchwood and Sarah Jane Adventures fan art, music, fiction, animation, films, reconstructions, comics, costumes and crafts.

    We return from our unannounced hiatus to wish you season's greetings and announce our imminent relaunch with an exciting new 'audio zine' format coming in 2011.

    \n

    To give you a little preview of things to come Nat, Erik and Katrina read the first three parts of a longer Eleventh Doctor Christmas fan fiction story by LiveJournal user betawho, Wherever It's Christmas.

    \nShow Notes\nIntroduction\n

    @ 1 minute 17 seconds\xc2\xa0- Nat welcomes all listeners and announces the new fandom-focused 'audio zine' format coming in 2011.

    \n

    Bridging the Rift is changing, plans are afoot to reboot our universe and regenerate into an all new format with less of a focus on the content of each Doctor Who, Torchwood or Sarah Jane series and more of a perspective on the fandom, its activities and its culture. We're planning to be a little less like a discussion podcast and a little more like an 'audio zine', with several shorter segments across each 'issue'. And much like zines, we're looking for writers to submit personal stories or articles on fandom's culture and history,\xc2\xa0correspondents\xc2\xa0to report on different types of fan activities and for more of a variety of fan creativity to feature within our virtual pages.\xc2\xa0

    \nWherever It's Christmas by Betawho\n

    Fan fiction will be a regular feature of our new format, so as a preview of things to come and a festive present from us to you, we give our first Bridging the Rift fan fiction reading, the first three parts of a seven part Eleventh Doctor Christmas story by LiveJournal user\xc2\xa0Betawho:

    \n

    http://betawho.livejournal.com/

    \n

    @ 2 minutes 50 seconds\xc2\xa0- Nat reads part one of Wherever It's Christmas by Betawho:

    \n

    http://betawho.livejournal.com/25578.html

    \n

    \xe2\x80\x9cWe missed Christmas!\xe2\x80\x9d Amy declared from the top of the stairs.

    Rory and the Doctor looked up from where Rory was handing the Doctor tools as the Time Lord fixed something under the console.

    \xe2\x80\x9cNonsense,\xe2\x80\x9d the Doctor said, \xe2\x80\x9cthis is a time machine, it can be Christmas anytime you want.\xe2\x80\x9d

    \n

    @ 7 minutes 40 seconds\xc2\xa0- Erik continues the story with part two...

    \n

    http://betawho.livejournal.com/25740.html

    \n

    \xe2\x80\x9cBut we can't,\xe2\x80\x9d Rory protested. \xe2\x80\x9cIt\xe2\x80\x99s 60 feet tall!\xe2\x80\x9d He stared up at the huge pine tree the Doctor had chosen.\xc2\xa0

    \xe2\x80\x9cIt\xe2\x80\x99ll fit in the Tardis,\xe2\x80\x9d the Doctor said, hands in his pockets looking up at his tree with satisfaction.

    \xe2\x80\x9cEven if it\xe2\x80\x99ll fit in the console room, how would we get it through the door?\xe2\x80\x9d Rory asked.

    \n

    @ 13 minutes 50 seconds\xc2\xa0- Katrina concludes our reading with part three...

    \n

    http://betawho.livejournal.com/25936.html

    \n

    Amy hung the last decoration and stepped back.\xc2\xa0 It was the most beautiful Christmas tree she'd ever seen.\xc2\xa0 And it was entirely covered in junk.

    Well, not\xc2\xa0entirely, she admitted.\xc2\xa0 They had managed to find one box of old Victorian Christmas ornaments.\xc2\xa0 But the rest was pure improv, sparkly bits ranging from fluid links to fiber optic cables that the Doctor had wired up to flash in different colors.\xc2\xa0 They had even made some tinsel out of some silvery, shredded alien packing material.

    \n

    Read the remaining four parts of the story at\xc2\xa0betawho.livejournal.com\xc2\xa0starting here:

    \n

    http://betawho.livejournal.com/26348.html

    \nCall For Content and Contributors\n

    @ 17 minutes\xc2\xa0- Nat expands on our new audio zine format and calls on potential contributors to get in touch.

    \n

    If you've particularly enjoyed reading any Doctor Who, Torchwood or Sarah Jane Adventures fan fiction that you think would be a good fit for Bridging the Rift please do get in touch, and if you could write articles or essays, could be a\xc2\xa0correspondent\xc2\xa0for a particular subject or have any other suggestions for content that might fit our new fandom-focused audio zine format do please pass them on by email to our GoogleMail address, in the comments at our Wordpress blog or directed\xc2\xa0@BridgingTheRift\xc2\xa0on twitter.

    We'd love to show off the talents of fan artists by including different cover artwork for every issue, so if you're an artist or photomanipulation wizard who'd like to get involved, and especially if you could help us develop a new logo, please do drop us an email.

    At long last, it\'s here! The second part of our massive, sprawling discussion of the latter half of series 5. Last time, we discussed the Silurian 2-parter and "Vincent & The Doctor." The conversation continues here as we dive into "The Lodger" and the 2-part finale, "The Pandorica Opens / The Big Bang."

    \nShow Notes\nIntroduction\n

    @ 1 minute - A brief intro and apology from Erik.

    \nGeneral Discussion\n

    @ 1 minutes 40 seconds - We pick up where we left off, with a discussion of Gareth Robert\'s quirky "The Lodger." And yes, the towel scene gets mentioned. As the story was based on a 10th Doctor comic strip, we also talk about how well this episode fit the 11th Doctor, and which other Doctors we think could have done well with this story.

    \n

    @ 15 minutes 15 seconds - We dive into "The Pandorica Opens," and the conversation naturally meanders over into its conclusion "The Big Bang," and we try to hit all the high notes: River Song! Young Amy! Plastic Rory! The Doctor Dances...poorly! Plus, Nat has a very interesting theory as to what the story\'s really all about. Also, stupid people are stupid.

    \n

    @ 1 hour 2 minutes 26 seconds - An open call for feedback, especially a request that you bring our attention to any excellent Series 5 inspired creativity for our next episode.

    \n

    \n

    \n

    @ 1 hour 2 minutes 50 seconds - Speaking of next episodes...back to our core strength--spotlighting your excellent works of creativity!

    \n

    Trocking Out

    \n

    @ 1 hour 3 minutes 25 seconds - We trock out to the excellent song "Doctor Who" by Parry Gripp. You can download this song, and many others, at http://parrygripp.com. They also have songs available via iTunes, and they have a great YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/ParryGripp.

    In something of a continuation from our last episode, we decided to review the episodes of the second half of Series 5. Little did we know that the discussion would rage on for over 2 hours! So, we decided to split the episode into 2 parts, the first of which you find here. Nat, Katrina, and Erik natter away about "The Hungry Earth," "Cold Blood," and "Vincent and The Doctor."

    \nShow Notes\nIntroduction\n

    @ 1 minute - Who we are.

    \nGeneral Discussion\n

    @ 1 minutes 45 seconds - An open call for Season 5 inspired creativity, especially items on personal blogs or other out of the way places.

    \n

    @ 4 minutes 50 seconds - We begin with "The Hungry Earth," which gets compared to an EastEnders intro to The Phantom Menace. Whether that\'s a good or a bad thing, we\'ll let you decide. Plus, did the BBC make a mistake in letting everyone know that the Silurians were back?

    \n

    @ 15\xc2\xa0 minutes - We start to move on in earnest to "Cold Blood," which comes in for a bit more criticism than we\'re accustomed to dispensing. In particular, did the Silurians get the relaunch and introduction to a new generation that they deserved?

    \n

    @ 23 minutes 45 seconds - Rory\'s temporary death and the nature of the crack get looked at from all sorts of angles, prompting a lively discussion about "soft rewrites."

    \n

    @ 39 minutes - "Vincent and the Doctor" takes its turn in the spotlight, with the space chicken, Vincent\'s illness, and the historical inaccuracy of the episode prompting strong reactions all around.

    \n

    @ 59 minutes - A promise of more to come...

    \n

    After many delays of all varieties and from all quarters, Bridging the Rift sheepishly returns with an episode recorded in late May in which Nat, Katrina, and Erik discuss Series 5 through "Amy\'s Choice." Unusually for us, it\'s all discussion: so prepare yourself for reactions and rampant speculation that will have been proven to be either spot on or wildly inaccurate.

    \nShow Notes\nIntroduction\n

    @ 1 minute - The usual introductions from the gang.

    \nGeneral Discussion\n

    @ 1 minutes 40 seconds - We begin with the basics: the new titles, the new version of the theme tune, the general look and feel of this series, and the long-forgotten series Fnarg controversy.

    \n

    @ 14 minutes 45 seconds - Next we turn our attention to the four key characters who have graced our screens during series 5: The Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, Rory Williams, and Dr. River Song.

    \n

    @ 33 minutes 20 seconds - The story arcs that have kept us guessing: the crack, the 2 Doctors, and general tiemy-wimey-ness.

    \n

    @ 50 minutes - Some key controversies from series 5, focusing on The Weeping Angels first on-screen movements, the redesigned Daleks, the possibly problematic plot of "The Beast Below," and Katrina\'s passionate reaction to "Amy\'s Choice."

    \nNext Time\n

    @ 1 hour 15 minutes - Next time, we look at how fan artists of all sorts given us their impressions of Series 5. If you have any feedback about anything we\xe2\x80\x99ve discussed, you can send messages on Twitter directed @BridgingTheRift, comment on this blog post or send short MP3 feedback to our GoogleMail address.\xc2\xa0 You can also "like" us on Facebook and leave comments there.

    \nTrocking Out - The Oodcast\n

    @ 1 hour 16 minutes 45 seconds - This time, we use our Trocking Out section to recommend another podcast, namely The Oodcast which brings us weekly installments of sketches, reviews, witty banter, and songs about Doctor Who. Our featured selection is a song from their episode about "Amy\'s Choice" in which Laura (the resident chanteuse on the show) gives us her version of Fleetwood Mac\'s "Dreams." Enjoy!

    \n

    Johanna\'s costuming tips:
    \nIf you\'re going to buy ONE book to learn how to start sewing, I\nrecommend "Singer Sewing Basics". It\'s a skinny blue hardback, which\nyou can find in most used-book stores (don\'t bother buying new, it\'s\nubiquitous) for about $5 or $6. Singer has a whole series of sewing\nbooks, of course, focusing on different topics, including "sewing with\nspecial fabrics" and that sort of thing.

    \n

    And, for the construction-oriented person, you can\'t miss a visit to http://www.thistothat.com/ - a great website for determining which adhesives will NOT melt the panels in your Dalek costume.

    \nNext Time\n

    @ 1 hour 13 minutes 45 seconds - Next time our discussion topic will be Fandom versus Rose Tyler.

    \n

    If you have any feedback about any of the topics we\'ve discussed,\nplease leave comments on the blog at\nhttp://bridgingtherift.wordpress.com/ send audio feedback under three\nminutes to our GoogelMail address, or direct short comments @BridgingTheRift on Twitter.

    \nTrocking Out\n

    1 hour 14 minutes 20 seconds - We were hoping to\ntrock out with a song about costumes, but we couldn\'t really think of\nanything appropriate. The closest we got was possibly the most\nextravagant \'costume\' to ever appear in Doctor Who - The Cyber-King, as \'worn\' by Miss Hartigan!

    1 hour 30 minutes - Chameleon Circuit - Journey's End:

    \n

    In the Doctor Who Magazine reader's poll, fans who came to Doctor\nWho with the new series voted Journey's End the best Doctor Who story\nof all time, also placing the other series finales in their top 5 and\nrelegating Caves of Androzani to number 10. So as we featured a funny\nplot synopsis comic of Caves of Androzani, we feel Journey's End also\ndeserves the treatment.

    \n

    Luckily Chameleon Circuit have fit the bill perfectly with this track from their debut self-titled album, available from DFTBA records, from iTunes and Amazon MP3. Thanks to DFTBA records and the band for permission to use this track.

    \nRebuttals\n

    Correction: In episode 5 Nat stated that Harold S.\nrecommended Captain Jack and the TARDIS by Rhodri James when in fact he\nrecommended a filk of the same folk song, called Captain Jack and the\nTardis by a filker called Crystal Paul. We apologise for confusing\nthese two Doctor Who filks to the same tune.

    \n

    @ 14 minutes 50 seconds - We look at your feedback to episode 4 where we were joined by Kate Orman to discuss fandom's relationship with Russell T Davies:
