A few snippets from Gallifrey One 2010

I still fully intend to write up some kind of con-report about Gallifrey, but I returned from the convention into a whirlwind of work deadlines, house-hunting (seen 3 houses in past week; made offer on one but had it rejected in favor of another offer; due to see at least 2 more houses before week is out), and stuff. Also, I am currently testing the proposition that it is possible to fight off a cold by application of tea and sheer willpower. So far, it's working.

But I have been greatly enjoying reliving the convention through twitter and Youtube. Here are a couple of particularly fun videos:

Peter Davison's message to the convention. It was filmed off the screen, so it's a bit blurry, but still good fun. Davison's got quite a sense of humor.

The Unsung Hero. This was a masquerade skit about the Brigadier, featuring an impressive number of Doctors and companions, and a very good Brig costume. It was a big hit with the crowd at the masquerade - I was a bit surprised that it didn't win an award, as far as I can remember.
