Happy Who-Loween! New branding, new guest, and new contest!

Is everyone having a super spooky Halloween? Stay safe today, whether you’re out partying, trick-or-treating, or staying in to watch BBC America’s Doctor Who marathon! They’re airing some of the series’s spookiest episodes, so be sure to tune in.

Oh, and if you’ve got any Who-ish costumes or decor tonight, show us! From now until Friday night, we’re asking for photos of your family’s Who-inspired Halloween costumes, pumpkins, snacks, decorations, or what have you. We’ll run our favorites in next week’s blog post!

If you want to share, you can hop over to our Facebook group or tag @ReGenerationWho on Twitter. We can’t wait to see what you’ve made!

But we’re not going to leave you without one last treat!

We’re very happy to announce a returning guest: Davros himself, Terry Molloy!

Terry has appeared at (Re)Gen since the beginning, bringing us everything from Classic era talk to workshops for aspiring actors to his, erm, “Dave Ross” Variety Hour. We can’t wait to welcome him back to Baltimore for more fun and entertainment… and, of course, he’ll be bringing along his cohort Monty to talk about their new book!

Stay tuned in the coming weeks: we have more guests to announce and more fun surprises to share! Don’t miss out — register now and get your ticket to the mid-Atlantic’s premiere Doctor Who party!

A Journey to Devil’s End

Fans of Classic Who will remember the Third Doctor episode The Dæmons, which featured the Time Lord and his old foe the Master in a small town called Devil’s End. But did you know you can actually visit Devil’s End? It exists — under another name, of course — and they’re very welcoming to Doctor Who fans who journey there.

It’s not actually called “Devil’s End,” of course, but Aldbourne. The village in Wiltshire has a population of less than 2,000, and is a beautiful place to visit in its own right. There are two pubs, one with a friendly old dog named Kali who keeps an eye on visitors. The same pub has a familiar-looking customer out front.

Press the button, and you’ll hear an impressive tirade about the Daleks’ plan to conquer Aldbourne. Don’t worry, though, it won’t actually do anything. It is, however, a functioning rubbish bin with a plate for stubbing out cigarettes on top.

Go farther into the village and you’ll see many more spots of note from the story. But the most notable is likely the other pub — the Blue Boar, renamed in the story as the Cloven Hoof.

And yes, that sign is really outside (albeit off to the side) in case you want a photo op!

The interior of the Blue Boar is a cozy place for food and drinks. Go into the back, and you’ll see some flyers from the early days of Doctor Who fandom. Unsurprisingly, it became a gathering spot for fans, and occasionally for the actors themselves!

If you’d like to learn more about the village, be sure to visit The Aldbourne Net, or look up The Aldbourne Archive on Facebook for photos of the village’s history!

Want to learn more about the history of Doctor Who and cool sightseeing locations? Our guests and panelists have you covered! Register now to join us this March and meet Who faves Peter Davison, Michelle Gomez, and many more to be announced soon!

Baker’s End Continues… And Not a Moment Too Soon!

The Bafflegab audio series Baker’s End features a number of (Re)Gen family: penned by Paul Magrs and starring Tom Baker and Katy Manning, the fantastical three-episode story saw Tom “reborn” as the King of Cats, solving mysteries around the tiny town of Happenstance.

But regeneration comes for us all in the end, and the new face of the show will see a very different Baker taking the stage — Old Sixie himself and one of (Re)Gen’s very first guests, Colin Baker!

The fourth episode of the ongoing series sees Colin Baker as himself (well… a version of himself) taking up the mantle of the lord of Baker’s End. Colin teams up with companion Susie (played by Katy Manning) to uncover the source of a mysterious virus making its way through Happenstance. And it’s not just the pox; the town is also plagued with giant rats! Will the magnificent King of Cats be back on his feet in time to save the day?

You can find out this Friday when The Happenstance Pox goes live. Preorder now from Bafflegab and you’ll be among the first to hear the new episode!
