The Drill Down: Farewell To Greg Davies

In case you missed it being previously reported, dear friend of The Drill Down and longtime Geeks of Doom contributor Greg Davies (also known as cgt2099), passed away suddenly on the morning of January 29th.

For 124 episodes, Greg and Tom Cheredar traversed spacetime into complex discussions to deliver a critique of new Doctor Who episodes via Geeks of Doom’s TARDISblend podcast. Greg and Andrew Sorcini collaborated on over 100 episodes of The Geeks Of Doom Round Up, sharing stories from respective podcasts and their favorite music.

The Doctor Who TARDISblend 125: Greg Davies

It’s never easy when the Doctor loses a companion during her/his travels, and the same is true of close friends in real life. As we previously reported, dear friend and longtime Geeks of Doom contributor Greg Davies (also known as cgt2099), passed away suddenly last week. For 124 episodes, Greg and I delved into complex discussions to deliver a critique of Doctor Who via the TARDISblend podcast. While the podcast has come to an end, my fellow GoDs and I wanted to do something to celebrate our fallen mate.

Tardis Farewell

Greg Davies, a long-time Geeks of Doom contributor and friend, passed away Tuesday. He was one of the first internet friends I made at the dawn of the social media and news-sharing era over a decade ago. He went by the handle cgt2099 and regularly used a silver alien head as his avatar. He immigrated to America from his home down under in Australia, and often ended discussions with the word “Dilligaf*.” And unlike the majority of folks I encountered in those early days of the social web, this guy was always hyper interested in two things: the most important news of the day, and figuring out a way to build a community around it that had more humanity than a rowdy comment section.

TV Review: Doctor Who 2015 Christmas Special

Doctor Who Christmas 2015 BBC America

Doctor Who
2015 Christmas Special “The Husbands Of River Song”
Directed by Douglas McKinnon
Written by Steven Moffat
Starring Peter Capaldi, Alex Kingston, Matt Lucas, Greg Davies
BBC America
Air date: December 25, 2015

When it comes to modern Doctor Who, I have to admit a soft spot for River Song. That’s especially true of her first appearance in “Silence In The Library/Forest Of The Dead.” Written by Steven Moffat, it was one of the brighter spots of the Russell Davies era. It has some entertaining plot twists, an energetic performance by Alex Kingston, and a sudden opening of new possibilities for what the Doctor could be and for what show could look like.

It’s been seven years and River Song is back. That future happened. Russell Davies and David Tennant turned into Steven Moffat, Matt Smith, and now Peter Capaldi. We know River Song’s origins and the meaning of her name. We’ve learned much about her history and something of the Doctor’s as well. Does this latest encounter polish or tarnish the legacy of their time together? Let’s find out.

Doctor Who TARDISblend Banner

After completing his weighty, serious, and sobering journey separating from his companion, the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) finds himself crossing paths with his wife, River Song (Alex Kingston), taking him on a ridiculous rollicking adventure. But there’s just one problem – she doesn’t recognize that he’s the Doctor…

During TARDISblend 98, we round out 2015 with a look at the Doctor Who Christmas Special, comparing it to previous efforts from Steven Moffat, and take a very short, quick glance at what’s coming next year.

All this and more on the latest TARDISblend podcast!
