Gallifrey One is difficult to describe because it is so many things. It’s like being at the center point of Doctor Who fandom and discovering it exists everywhere in infinite variation. The only thing unifying the disparate group of con goers was a love for a mythology based on a TV show and even that varies from casual observer to fierce devotee yet there is room for everyone.
Gallifrey One is a giant party except when it isn’t. It’s a classroom, a shopping mall, a networking mixer, an entertainment complex. It is an experience unique to the individual depending on their own choices and how willing they are to allow themselves to be swayed by the next siren call. There’s no right or wrong way to partake of the con but once you’re down in that ballroom it’s almost impossible to hold onto even the best laid plans. A schedule changes, or new friends make suggestions, or exhaustion sets in or a second wind is found and you find yourself in places you never thought to go.
