Gallifrey One Attendees 2016 In-N-Out Burger Run
Announcing the 2016 In-N-Out Burger Run. Once again it will be Thursday night before the Ice Cream Social. We will be meeting up starting at 5:45 by the Starbucks in the Marriott lobby. I will be wearing a black In-N-Out. I will try to match up those who have transportation with those needing it, but the majority of our participants walk, as a group, to the In-N-Out. Once there, I will be handing out special ribbons for being there. Please stick around for the photo that will be posted here. Its open to everyone and is a way to meet people before the convention officially starts. See you all then!

There’s a growing generation of fans who were born after Classic Who was already off the air, used to fast-paced episodes, streaming every episode of a show on-demand, and slightly higher quality special effects. This panel will discuss the barriers to getting younger fans into the show, and provide some resources for younger or inexperienced fans on how to find the best of the best.

The Doctors Are In
From his beginnings as a crotchety, anti-heroic scientist in 1963 to his current place in British pop culture as the mad and dangerous monster-fighting saviour of the universe, the titular character of Doctor Who has metamorphosed in his 50 years on television. And yet the questions about him remain the same: Who is he? Why does he act the way he does? What motivates him to fight evil across space and time? The Doctors Are In is a guide to television’s most beloved time traveller by Graeme Burk and Robert Smith? Join them for a conversation about the book and about why the Doctor has been an enduring character for over five decades.

Larger than Life: The Role of the Companion in Modern Who
The modern series of Doctor Who has featured each companion doing remarkable and sometimes super human things… but in the meanwhile, there are massive cries for returning back to the old paradigm of a perfectly normal ‘regular person’ stepping into those shoes for the next round. We’ll discuss the evolution of the role of the companion, including addressing some of the reasons why people might be over the larger than life companion role (and why there are sometimes sexist notions behind that), and debating why developing the companion back into a supporting player might not be the best thing for the show in 2016.

The Burdens of Continuity
Doctor Who’s rich tapestry of storytelling often falls to fan service; often times we find ourselves looking forward solely to that twist that brings back a familiar face, a villain we cannot live without, or a voyage to Gallifrey or otherwise. But how does this shrink the canvas Doctor Who plays out upon? We’ll take a look at where continuity supersedes good storytelling… and why, paradoxically, the conservatism of some parts of fandom begets the notion that fans of a show about change seem to dislike change entirely.

Let’s talk about those moments when Doctor Who pushed the boundaries of diversity and showed us that yes, we CAN be bigger on the inside.

From Clara to Rory to Missy to Osgood to Davros and even the Time Lords — and you have to through the increasingly complicated history of River Song in there somewhere — has Steven Moffat’s decision to bring back multiple characters made death in Doctor Who anti-climactic? Or is it just another example of the wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey fun that keeps the show fresh?

I am a writer. I write for TV mainly these days but I also write Doctor Who tie in media: books, audios, comics and non-fiction. Those little Doctor Who "kits" in boxes? I write the books that go with those. I love to talk to people about SF and DW, writing and how to do it! You may find me at the bar or Lobbycon... So come and chat. :)

Revisiting a Galaxy Far, Far Away…
Star Wars is back, and it’s never been bigger; The Force Awakens is shattering box office records, Star Wars Rebels continues to engage on TV, and there are at least five new Star Wars films coming in the next five years. Our panel will serve two purposes: we’ll critically review The Force Awakens, comparing and contrasting it to what has come before; and we will take a look at the Star Wars onslaught coming down the pipeline.

Prisoner Zero
Gary Russell, Jason Haigh-Ellery and Mark Oliver bring us a special sneak-peek at PRISONER ZERO, the new Australian science fiction animated series coming in 2016.  It's a brand-new animated sci-fi series aimed at 8-12 year olds - and beyond!!

'Prisoner Zero' is a science-fiction adventure series for kids. It tells the story of Gem Coll and Tag Anaton, two teenagers from different worlds, living aboard a spaceship called Rogue. They travel to alien worlds to fight monsters from ancient times, free the oppressed from the evil Imperium's tyranny and find out just who Prisoner Zero is and why the Imperium took away his memories. Leading the fight is Zero himself, aided by Gem's adoptive parents Del and Bowi Rev, the mysterious alien known only as Librarian and Tag's personal protection android, Guardian. The Imperium is masterminded by the sly, manipulative General Vykar along with his handpicked team: Prime Tactician Barqel and Prime Assassin Lady Kai.

Created by an army of young animators, Planet 55 Studios' new show pulls together a powerful struggle of good versus evil. Against an emotional backdrop of the teenagers trying to rescue their parents, Zero seeks to learn the secrets of his past that the Imperium erased while he was being held captive.

New Perspectives on Classic Doctors
Let’s face it, we all know we have different outlooks toward the Doctors of yesteryear depending upon the era we view them. What changes in the critical narrative (not to mention, the reexaminations many of them have received through their audio adventures) have changed the way we look at the Doctors from the classic series?

With two films under their belts, the producers of the current Star Trek film series have sought more mainstream appeal with a trailer that left longtime fans a bit cold.

Gallifrey One’s annual charity event, taking place starting Sunday at 12:30pm… and this year hosted by our own Tony Lee and Richard Dinnick (who promise to keep it at or under three hours! This train’s gonna run on time!)

This year, as we’ve announced, the charity auction – as always, named in honor of our dear friend, the late Bob May of "Lost in Space" fame – will be benefitting the LUMOS Foundation, the organization started by J.K. Rowling that helps find homes, security and protection for orphaned and lost children worldwide.

We’ve partnered with Nerder Mysteries, a long time supporter of LUMOS, for our convention-wide game, "Let Zygons Be Zygons".  You can check in about the game at any time at the Nerder Mysteries table in the Exhibitor Table hallway.

Donations for the auction are always accepted and this year, you can drop off your donations at the first door down the Exhibitor Table hallway, right behind our Member Services desk.  Please see the Charity Auction page on our website to find out what kinds of donations we accept.

Our panel will proceed as if they’re episode hunters on the cusp of several major discoveries, noting exactly which couple of stories they’d be proud to recover, and why.
