PubCon3 Update

PubCon 3 features Graeme Harper, Terrance Dicks and Sophie AldredAs previously announced, PubCon 3 takes place at The Lass O’Gowrie pub in Manchester in July, the third such event over the past few years; whereas previous events have focussed on comics and novels from the Doctor Who ouvre, PubCon 3 has a different format…

As you can see, the event has a superb poster, designed by Colin Brockhurst which features the striking image of one of TV’s other great legends (click image for larger resolution).

Involved this time around are:

* MC John Cooper
* Terrance Dicks (writer, legend novelist who taught most of us to read)
* Andrew Cartmel (script editor and mastermind behind the McCoy revival)
* Graeme Harper (only the greatest Director of Who ever)
* Dez Skinn (founding editor of our beloved Doctor Who Magazine)
* Rob Shearman (genius behind Dalek, Chimes of Midnight and fan scholar)
* Chris Achilleos (master of the early target novel covers, this man IS art)
* Ade Salmon (artist’s artist, illustrator of the Time Team and Cybermen)

With Sophie Aldred – former 1980s companion Ace – recently added to the list (which as ever is subject to professional commitments), this time around the guests will be talking about their six favourite things about their time of Doctor Who.

This might be a person, a character, a scene – whatever they fancy really.

Taking place on Sunday, July 18th, tickets cost a bargainous £19.50 a head and are available ONLY from .
