Gallifreyan Cultural Studies 101
We have more information than ever before on the people and planet of Gallifrey — be it in the show, the audios, the novels, etc. — so we’re going to take a good long look at it all and make some sense out of it. What kind of society really holds itself to such lofty ambitions as the Time Lords? Why would such an advanced society have technological dropouts, or be so interested in prophecies? And how would the Doctor grow up in a barn?

The Ties That Bind Us
There are very distinct groups of fans at this and other conventions: viewers, critics, writers, artists, podcasters, cosplayers, prop collectors, and more. And yet, we all gather together every year at Gallifrey One. Let’s bring a group of diverse fans to the same table and discuss the common love for the show and maybe bring some people together who might have otherwise never met.

Indoctornated
Doctor Who fans are among the most extraordinary in all of the many fandoms. The makers of the documentary inDoctornated set out to find and document the lives of four people whose love for the series has led to them somehow making the world a better place. The doc started shooting last year in Mission Viejo and Irvine, and in the coming months is headed to San Diego and Yuma, Arizona. Hear from the filmmakers, see their first trailer, and get to know a couple of inDoctornated’s fascinating subjects in person. Drop in to the panel, pick up a ribbon, and discover where they’ve been, where they’re at, and where they’re headed.

Young at Hearts: You’re Never Too Old to Cosplay
Since shows like Doctor Who and Star Trek have broken the 50 year milestone, many of the longtime fans have definitely seen more “seasons”… and with the explosion of cosplay of younger fans, it has become a pop sensation. But fans have been cosplaying for decades, in fact, and this panel will demonstrate how popular costuming (as it used to be called) has been, share some hints from older costumers aimed at keeping the flame alive, and how the two generations can relate better.

From rebooting classics with female leads, like Battlestar Galactica’s Starbuck or Ghostbusters’s all-woman crew, or transitioning a character like the Master or the Doctor from a male actor to a female actor, genderswapping in sci-fi has generated praise and controversy. This panel will examine examples of genderswapping, why they inspire such outrage, where they succeed and where legitimate criticisms can be made.

The Feast of Steven
Doctor Who’s humanism and love of science and reason is perfectly compatible with matters of faith and spirituality; the common themes of selflessness, charity, honesty and self-sacrifice have been pillars of the program since its inception. Is there room in the TARDIS for both God and the scientific origins of (and future of) the universe? We’ll have a lively and courteous discussion about the role of religion and faith in the show and how Doctor Who has always been a story of morality.

The Biology of Doctor Who
Are Time Lords plausible? How is it possible to be a human/Time Lord hybrid (or worse, half-Dalek)? What effect would constant space/time travel have on the Doctor’s companions? And why do Nimons have horns, the Ood tentacles and Zygons… whatever it is they call those? We’ll have a lively discussion on the biological plausibility of the Doctor himself, his traveling companions, and the aliens we encounter on the show.

Taking last year’s panel a step further. Crossovers have been a big part of fandom for years, but there’s one that has really stuck, even bafflingly so: Superwholock, the mashup that brings the three shows Doctor Who, Sherlock and Supernatural together in one giant shared universe, and it’s huge online. We’re going to follow this up with some new discussion, including talking about Tumblr, OTPs, and the amazing online culture that brings these fans together.

The Third Law
As proposed by the legendary Arthur C. Clarke, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Doctor Who has skirted the line throughout its long history, from its wibbly-wobbly junk science to the literal use of magic itself, but often times still remaining completely plausible. We’ll discuss the use of science, magic and reason in the show, and figure out what’s based in reality, what’s theoretically possible, and what has been made up for the good of the story.

The last Star Trek reboot film was a disappointment for Paramount, so all eyes have turned to the small screen as CBS All Access prepares “Star Trek Discovery” for this spring. Can this new incarnation of Star Trek return the series to new heights of popularity? Or will this be another flash in the pan? And what about the recent departure of its showrunner? We’ll discuss.

Stay On Target
For many fans, both American and British, the only way to experience Classic Who stories a second time was to read the Target novel adaptations. Before the video releases, many fans knew the stories better in book form than in video form, and a lot of the characterizations and descriptions from these books have become iconic in and of themselves. In this panel, fans who love Doctor Who both on TV and in print will talk about how these little books influenced their fandom.

Tales That Might Have Been
We’ve all done it… if WE were in charge, things might have been different. Favorite characters may have become companions, Doctors may have acted (or dressed) differently, and story arcs may have taken new forms. Our panelists, together with the audience, will discuss some of the ways Doctor Who may have evolved differently over the years; who we would have loved seeing as a regular on the show; and how differently we feel the show might have evolved when times were tough.
