As promised, the site now has a new layout featuring the Eleventh Doctor and his new companion, Clara! There is also a new poll on the right sidebar, asking for you to choose your favorite leading lady.
So go vote and let me know what you think of the new layout!
Also, I am currently working on updating some of the site’s pages – right now all of the actors’ filmographies are up to date and I’m in the middle of updating the characters’ quote pages to include quotes from the first half of Series 7. You can also expect the gallery to be updated with Series 7 images before the new episode airs on Christmas Day.
I am so sorry for the lack of site updates in the last two months, I have been incredibly busy with things going on in my personal life but I am back and I can promise you that a lot of new updates are coming soon – including a new layout tomorrow!
I am pleased to announce that The Medusa Cascade has a new staff member! Thank you so much, Blanka, for your interest in helping out. I look forward to working with you and I’m sure we’ll have a wonderful time working together to make The Medusa Cascade bigger and better!
If anyone would like to know more about Blanka, feel free to head on over to the staff page and read her profile.
On another note, I am still working on screencaptures and images from the latest two episodes of Doctor Who but they more than likely will not be posted before October 5th due to personal reasons. Sorry for the wait!
We have put up a new poll asking which of the New Who Doctors you would most like to travel with. It can be found on the right sidebar. Vote now!
For those of you interested in the results of our last poll, your favorite full-time female companion from New Who, here they are, showing Donna as the clear winner!
Who has been your favorite full-time female companion in New Who so far?

Four years ago today, The Medusa Cascade was launched. Since then we’ve had our ups and downs and one of our worst moments was just a few months ago when we almost ceased to be. While we’re still working on coming back as strong as ever, I would like to take the time to thank each and every one of our visitors for their support and influence over the past four years, we wouldn’t still be here if it wasn’t for all of you!
To celebrate our fourth anniversary, we also have a new layout featuring Amy and Rory aka Mr. and Mrs. Williams (or Mr. and Mrs. Pond if you prefer). Originally I was going to have a layout featuring all three shows, Doctor Who, Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures as was the result of a recent poll, but I changed my mind when I realized that this layout would most likely still be up as Amy and Rory’s final episodes aired. So as we celebrate four years online, we also say goodbye to Amy and Rory, the first married couple to travel with the Doctor!
Welcome back to The Medusa Cascade!
As you can see, we’re still getting things in order around the site since our recent loss of data. If all goes well, we hope to open the gallery once more on June 21 (though there will likely only be screencaps and not of every episode that has aired to date) and have everything as up to date and back in order as possible by our four year anniversary on July 28!
With the closing of our former webhost without any prior warning to us, we were left without a recent working back up (the most recent working one we had was from 2010) and as such we have lost a lot of what made our site great including all of our news posts and the over 400,000 images in our gallery. Luckily we can rebuild our gallery as we are doing right now, but the old news posts are gone. Thanks to Google’s cache feature and having old versions saved on my old computer, we were able to get most of our pages back as they were before. You may find broken links around the site as we continue to recreate all of them but that should be finished within the next couple days. There are also some which need to be updated and we will do this as soon as possible.
While the gallery is still closed, we recommend you go through all of your bookmarks/favorites which include links to our gallery and delete all except the main page. Since we had to rebuild the gallery from scratch, most links will redirect you to something other than what you had previously bookmarked for easy access. There are a few which are the same other than the main page, but this will really be down to coincidence more than anything else. You do not need to delete any pages of the main site you have bookmarked (with the exception of news posts) as all of the pages’ links are still the same thanks to our naming pattern.
Due to having to rebuild our site from scratch, there will likely be very few updates and new features added to the site for awhile though, as always, feel free to visit our LiveJournal and leave us some suggestions for when we have the time! You can also reach us via our Twitter, though with its lack of archiving, LiveJournal is the best for things that don’t need to/won’t be dealt with right away.
Thank you, as always, for visiting and supporting The Medusa Cascade – especially as we continue to rebuild – we truly appreciate it!
