Andrew Smith Appearance

Full Circle scriptwriter Andrew Smith – who has been relatively unheard of since the serial’s 1980 broadcast – is set to appear at an event in Glasgow in May, a few months after his appearance as a DVD extra following the release of Tom Baker-era story arc The E-Space Trilogy in January

Army of Guests on Sunday May 29th also features Sixth Doctor Colin Baker, Peri Brown actress  Nicola Bryant, Wendy Padbury (sixties companion Zoe Heriot) distinguished actor Colin Salmon (Dr Moon in Silence in the Library), writer Stephen Greenhorn (The Lazarus Experiment, The Doctor’s Daughter) and the voice of the monsters himself Nicholas Briggs.

Of his previous appearances at Doctor Who events, Smith recalls:

“I remember I went to one back about 1980 which was in Mile End in London.  It was a big, old venue, at a university called St Mary’s, and it was quite daunting at the time – I was only 18 or 19 at the time.

“I remember doing an autograph session where they supplied copious quantities of wine – it was probably the first time I’d ever drunk it, and didn’t acquire a taste for it for many years!

“I could have sworn I’d only done the one convention, but I was reminded I’d done one through in Edinburgh around the same time. I’ve got no idea where it was, but think that was probably in the student accommodation too.”

The E-Space Trilogy comprises Andrew Smith’s Full Circle, Terrance Dicks’ State of Decay and Stephen Gallacher’s Warrior’s Gate and is currently available from Amazon for a superb £17.98 – that’s around £6 per disc!
