Fans Meet Producers
The Story of Doctor Who event at the Celtic Media Festival took place this week with fans posing questions to a panel which included executive producer Julie Gardner and designer Edward Thomas – but sadly without executive producer and lead writer Russell T Davies who was too busy to attend
Questions posed included those concerning why Doctor Who was not available in Lego (a very good question in my mind) to more frivolous queries into Matt Smith’s hair.
The event ttracted fans, industry insiders and fans alike. Jan Storie travelled from the far-flung town of Plockton in the Highlands of Scotland all the way to Caernarfon in Wales where the event was held in order to take part in various workshops to improve her script writing.
"I’ve never been to this festival before and it is a lovely venue," she said.
"It is interesting because I come from a Gallic speaking area, and I’ve heard French voices, and of course Welsh, and Irish…" she added.
Fans in attendance to The Story of Doctor Who event were also given a glimpse of Planet of the Dead which first aired in front of a packed half-time crowd at The Millenium Stadium last Saturday.
