Wizard World Philly for 2014 has come and gone and the Wizard World crew led by Jerry Milani and Jim DeLorenzo put on another outstanding weekend for the fans in the City of Brotherly Love.

The Doctor Who Project: The Fires of Pompeii

DOCTOR-WHO-PROJECT

Last time on the Doctor Who Project I mentioned how Peter Capaldi is a great choice to be the next incarnation of the mad man who stole a blue box.

About Moondog Mackey

Moondog Mackey lives in the swamps of South Jersey. I am a nerd for the show Doctor Who and have been since the 4th Doctor in the early 80s. I am also a geek for British comedy, all kinds of movies, with the horror and science fiction genres in particular. I am also a fan of 80s cartoons, retro toys from the 70s, and a major fan of traveling all over the globe. I believe that Han Solo shot first and there was a second shooter on the Grassy Knoll.
