In this Time-Dialated, Gallifrey One-facilitated interview show, two popular media observers with impeccable DOCTOR WHO credentials — Yer Actual Keith Telly Topping and The Incomparable's Jason Snell — help me look outside the fishbowl to see just how well our favorite television series is doing in the wider world of SF fans and TV viewers.

In our first of two extended Time Dilation episodes of 2MTL featuring interviews from Gallifrey One, we hear from two well-known Doctor Who pros that have launched new phases of their careers. Paul Cornell talks about his novels London Falling and the upcoming The Severed Streets, redefining Marvel's Wolverine, and IDW's "The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who." Gary Russell reflects on his long history with Doctor Who, and how he's carried that to Australia as a series producer for Planet 55 Studios.

Mirroring Doctor Who's enormous popularity, the Doctor himself has become a bigger and bigger deal in his own fictional universe, and the axis around which most of his stories have rotated in recent years. Is it time to dial things back? Maybe even go back to the old, formulaic days of having random adventures and moving on?

The Christmas spirit survives past the 25th, as we celebrate and critique Matt Smith's final episode. In song.

An awful moment at the BFI premiere of the latest Sherlock series made me think about how much more broad and welcoming Doctor Who fandom should be of its creative communities and other "outsiders."
