Dutch meet-up?
Random: Picon

I just posted a poll over at torch_wood about a possible meet-up: here. If anyone's interested: please vote and/or comment! :)

Also some shameless promotion: TWNL, for all your Dutch-language Torchwood squee!


P.S. For some reason I got an error ('you have exceeded your maximum number of tags'?!) when I tried to add a 'meet-up' tag. Weeeiiird. Anyway, sorry for the not tagging.

Dutch Torchwood forum
If any of you would like to discuss TW in Dutch, there's a brand new Dutch forum over here:


Gareth David Lloyd @ The Hub 3!
Gareth has just been announced as a guest for The Hub 3 in Birmingham, October 2009! The guest-list is finally starting to look like a proper guest-list, IMHO. ;-) Who else here is going to the con?

Hoi guys,

I thought it would be a nice thing to have a post where we share our secrets for maintaining our addictions to Who and Torchwood.

What are your favourite places to get the books, DVDs, action figures. Which stores sell Doctor Who magazine?

My favourite online places are:

Play: cheap CDs, DVDs, books. Shipping included and pricing in euros, so not depending on exchange rates. They don’t ship toys, figurines and electronics to the Netherlands and Belgium.

They are usually reliable, but take along time to deliver their CDs/books because they tend not to use the TNT or any of the other bigger delivery companies.

Amazon.Co.uk/ amazon.com: Shipping is not included and can give you an heart attack when you realize how much it is to ship a Tardis USB hub from the States to the Netherlands. (better to use friends overseas). Also customs may throw a spanner in the works if ordering from the States. When ordering anything electronic remember they use different sockets. (Also a lesson learned the hard way). Delivery is generally fast and they do use the larger delivery companies

Amazon.de: the German Amazon books are shipped free to the Netherlands. Prices comparable to the other Amazon sites.

Bigfinish: the Big Finish website, more expansive than Play etc. but their sales are very good. Just one warning don’t buy the downloads. Depending on the exchange rate the CDs are only €0,5-€1 more and then you have both the CD and a download. (the CDs were at one point even cheaper than the downloads.)

Sendit and Dvd.co.uk also ship to the Netherlands, I have never used them because others have been cheaper but they might be a good alternative if something is sold out.

For shops in the Netherlands,

The American Book center
( Amsterdam and Den Haag) sells Doctor Who and Torchwood books. Plus the Doctor Who magazine. You have to be quick because it will sell out almost immediately and I rarely see them longer than a few days in the stores. The same goes for Waterstone’s in Amsterdam.

The Read Shop may have a location near you. They sometimes have Doctor Who magazine, but they don’t seem to have a steady supply.

So what are the places you get your Doctor who/Torchwood fix.

Hoi everybody,

Welcome to the com, we are open for business.

Just a few house rules.
  • Keep things civil, I don't feel like modding you.
  • Preferred language is English, it is possible that not all of our members speak Dutch. Of course interesting Dutch articles about Doctor Who and Torchwood are welcome.
  • Post pictures behind a cut. We all hate it when our Flists get ruined,
  • All subjects are welcome, from casting news, to meet-ups, to reviews, sales posts, random shout outs. For posting fanfic I would choose another com, but if you want specific Dutch comments  you're welcome to post.
  • Have Fun!!!
