Ever wonder what we do on our down time???

Seems like each member of The Happiness Patrol has a blog of their own. Recently I thought it might be nice to share these sites with you...sorta providing a bit of insight into what we are like outside of our podcast.
So, here we go!

Let's start off with Tara W.
Tara is a noted scarf affectionado and knitting MAD WOMAN. (but you probably already picked up on that)
Here is her website where is tells all!

It's called
A WITTY LITTLE KNITTER

Lela S has a blog where she quotes her mom on occasion (it can be quite funny)
She also dabbles with nature photography (and is quite good)

Zeta Sigma
Things My Mother Says


Dale W has just started a new blog of musings called

PULL TO OPEN

...go see it.

Me, well, I just bring you this every week.

See ya!

The Happiness Patrol SPECIAL EDITION: Doctor Who in the USA



On this SPECIAL EDITION of The Happiness Patrol, Tara tells the tale of trekking across the Utah desert in search of a Time Lord.
With her sidekick Lela and hordes of Twitter followers by her side, she does the seemingly impossible...
tracks down the Doctor Who team as they film for the very first time in the USA.

OH, and beware! Snakes and SPOILERS AHEAD!!!

So sit back relax and start knitting, as Tara W. takes you with her

On...The Happiness Patrol SPECIAL EDITION: Doctor Who in the USA

Happy First Anniversary, Happiness Patrol!


Ask me 45 episodes ago if I thought this goofy podcast about Doctor Who would go for six months and I would have been flattered for the compliment. One year later looking back makes me go, 'WOW'...we got lucky.
Thanks to everyone would made this possible...I really could not have done it without each and everyone of you guys! I'd name them but if you are a regular listener of The Happiness Patrol, you already know who they are! (plus, I do a shout out in the podcast!)
And speaking of the podcast, this week we talk about The US filming of Doctor Who in Utah, The BBCA announcement for Christmas, Michelle H. pops in and brings some ROSCOE'S FRIED CHICKEN with her, and Dale tells you EVERYTHING you need to know about Children In Need.

We are very happy this week because not only is it the 1st Anniversary of The Happiness Patrol (Nov 17) it's also the anniversary of Doctor Who. 47 years ago on November 23rd a strange theme came across the airwaves in the UK and a Sci-Fi institution was launched. We are very proud to be a small part of that institution here at The Happiness Patrol.

...oh, and by the way, did I mention The Happiness Patrol was the ONLY DOCTOR WHO PODCAST at the Utah filming location of Doctor Who?? yep. that's the way we roll.
Hear Lela and Tara tell the tale of desert driving across the great American west all for the sake of catching a glimpse of their favorite Time Lord.
So break out the champagne and toast The Happiness Patrol!
Happy First Anniversary, Happiness Patrol!

The Happiness Patrol: Tara gets her Doctor! (again!)

A lot of speculation and guess work was involved in finding out where the Doctor Who crew would be filming in Utah in the past weeks. Not to mention the amount of rumors floating around the internet.
Well, we here at The Happiness Patrol put it all together and promised to let you know, as soon as we knew, where the filming was happening.
At the request of The BBC, people were asked not to reveal this info due to disruptions in filming.
We had a very good hunch, but, it could not be confirmed...plus, we were going to sit on it until AFTER the filming was completed.

BUT...
It all came together last night after watching The Craig Ferguson show when Matt Smith let the cat out of the bag when asked where he was filming in Utah.

Monument Valley he said.

So what do you think happened?
THIS:

Our own Ms Tara W headed out into the high lonesome a'huntin' a Doctor, and she found one.
Tara will have this story and MORE on this week's Happiness Patrol.
(also, we celebrate our first year of podcasting!)
Stay Tuned!

The Happiness Patrol Episode Thirty-One: Once Upon A Time


It's time to say goodbye to The Doctor and Amy till Christmas 2010. Here at The Happiness Patrol that means Season Wrap Up Time!!
Season 5 proved to be a very memorable year for Doctor Who. We've seen new aliens,
re-united with old friends and got to hang out in a brand new Tardis.
But more than that, we've seen a fantastic story arch from Steven Moffat that has really, in short, taken our collective breath away.

On this episode of The Happiness Patrol, recorded on July 4th, we see Lela in Las Vegas, Dale happy at home, Lewis ready for action and our Tara, well...she had to bow out because she was too sick to knit. TOO SICK TO KNIT! (that's pretty sick, if you know anything about our Tara!) So, we have a special stand in for her this week, Ms. Nancy A. our HP Correspondent from San Fransisco.

So sit back, relax and help us celebrate the end of a season that was full of promise and fun on...

The Happiness Patrol Episode Thirty: I Only Came For The Dancing

The Happiness Patrol CONTEST WINNER!!!!!!



Congratulations to Melissa Ray Davis our Happiness Patrol Contest Winner!
Melissa's entry came the closest to the way Steven Moffat crafted 'The Big Bang'.
She wins the fab prize of the first three issues of 'Doctor Who Weekly' from 1979!

All of our entries were tons of fun to read, but with Melissa's mention of the Doctor timestream jumping, Dale and the rest of us decided she came the closest!

Here is here entry:

"Hello everyone,

Here is my guess for your contest as to how the season finale will resolve:

In "The Big Bang," the Doctor will cross his own timeline into the
events of previous episodes in order to plant several seeds to change
the future. Two of these trips will be to Amy as a child (Eleventh
Hour) and to talk to Amy during the events of Flesh and Stone. These
trips make it possible for Amy to do something at a key moment that
will either:

cause the TARDIS never to explode and the cracks never to happen,
creating a time loop / paradox that will save the universe.

or cause the reality that was created from Amy's memories (Pandorica,
etc.) to break down.

I believe we already saw one of the Doctor's trips across his own time
line in Flesh and Stone. When the Doctor comes back to comfort Amy in
the forest, he is wearing his jacket. The jacket that the angels have.
The jacket that isn’t in any other forest scene. I think this was a
future Doctor. And he stresses that Amy must trust him, and must
remember what he told her when she was 7, which I think may have been
something future him told her in a scene we haven't seen yet. See my
screen caps here:
http://www.fallingstar.net/host/tardis/doctors_jacket_in_flesh_and_stone.html

Bonus: The Doctor and River's relationship will progress to something
more definite/defined.

That's my theory. Oh, and for the record, as per your query in the
last podcast, I am one "fan girl" who would prefer that the Eleventh
Doctor keep his towel on, thank you. (Between him and Pertwee, I think
we've seen enough of the Doctor showering!) :-)

Sincerely,
Melissa"


Melissa, those Doctor Who Weekly's are on there way!
Congrats and thanks for listening to The Happiness Patrol!

It's Birthday Time!

Here at The Happiness Patrol we strive to bring you the most entertaining Doctor Who podcast we can! Every week we report on the latest news from Doctor Who Fandom.

The Happiness Patrol is a collective group of informative folk who all started as Facebook friends. Tara and Lewis were members of the original 'Tardis Rebuilders' forum started by Mr. Dale Who.

Dale is an AMAZING man and The Happiness Patrol is EXTREMELY lucky to have him on board as co-host! Each week we are totally in awe of the amount of information about Doctor Who Dale possesses in his head!
Not only is he a Tardis rebuilder, Dalek driver, K-9 owner (and does a spot on impersonation of our beloved tin dog)
He is also a most beloved friend of Lela, Tara and mine.

People need to know this because Dale, turns an unknown age today!
Unknown because being a Timelord himself, it can be quite troublesome keeping up with all the comings and goings and timey-whimy business of birthdays!

BUT, we do know this:

Today is Dale's birthday!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DALE!



So join us in raising a glass to celebrate the birthday of our favorite Happiness Patroller!
Happy Birthday Dale!
Here's to many more!

Luv,
The Happiness Patrol!
