What a Con!

We’ve received notification from Tenth Planet of various Doctor Who conventions taking place across the UK throughout 2007.

First up is Invasion at Barking Abbey Comprehensive School, Barking, on Saturday 17th March 2007. Confirmed guests for this event include:

Sixth Doctor Colin Baker

Seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy

Eighth Doctor Paul McGann

Ace actress Sophie Aldred

Derek Martin

Michael Kilgarriff (CyberController/ Giant Robot)

Derek Ware (Stuntman and actor – e.g. Inferno)

Charles Pemberton (Cyberman – Tomb of the Cybermen, plus various genre shows)

April 14th & 15th sees the final “Star One” convention for Blake’s 7 fans. Confirmed guests so far are Paul Darrow, Angela Bruce, John Leeson, Peter Tuddingham, Steven Pacey, Lindy Alexander, Judy Buxton, Brian Croucher… and Jacqueling Pearce! Star One takes place at the Park Inn Hotel, bedford – visit tenthplanet.co.uk/starone for more.

The 21st and 22nd of July sees the Bad Wolf Doctor Who and Torchwood event in Birmingham. Confirmed guests include:

Gareth David Lloyd (Torchwood’s Ianto Jones)

Murray Melvin (Billis Manger)

Gareth Thomas (Ed Morgan from Torchwood 3; Blake from Blake’s 7)

Elizabeth Fost (Auton/Slitheen monster actress)

William Russell (First Doctor companion Ian Chesterton)

Finally, and most surprisingly we have the Dimensions event on 10th and 11th November 2007. Over the last few years this event has been held in Stockton on Tees, easily accessible by rail and road. This year it seems that the event has grown too big, and the new venue is the Washington district of Emerson, which doesnt have the same standard of transport links.

Confirmed guests for this event include:

Colin Baker

Peri actress Nicola Bryant

Inquisitor (Trial of a Time Lord) Lynda Bellingham

Valeyard (Trial of a Time Lord) Michael Jayston

BBC Author Gary Russell (now demoted to guest…)

The Big Finish team

The Doctor Who Magazine team

Visit Tenth Planet for pricing details of all events. Please note that attendance of all guests is dependent on work commitments.
