Classic Books Signing Event
With the re-release of some classic Doctor Who books comes a very special event, a book signing with some very familiar faces from the world of Doctor Who.
Six classic Doctor Who titles, featuring the first three Doctors, will be made available next month after many years of lingering in an “out of print” status.
The titles include: Doctor Who and the Crusaders, Doctor Who and the Daleks, Doctor Who and the Abominable Snowman, Doctor Who and the Cybermen, Doctor Who and the Auton Invasion and Doctor Who and the Cave Monsters.
Each book comes with a new and specially written introduction from popular authors and artists including Russell T Davies, Gareth Roberts and Neil Gaiman.
While neither of those men will be appearing, a raft of special guests has been lined up.
The book signing itself will take place at the Forbidden Planet Megastore located on Shaftsbury Avenue, on Saturday July 16th between 1pm and 2pm. Those lucky enough to get in will get to meet Carol Ann Ford (Susan Foreman), Frazer Hines (Jamie McCrimmon, pictured), Terrance Dicks (who has written so many classic television adventures over Doctor Who’s initial 26 year run it would take too long to list them all here!) and Chris Achilleos (fantasy artwork artist).
These books represent an era of Doctor Who, and television itself, before video players, DVD players and online catch up services were available and the only way to see a missed adventure was to read it in print format.
