King Yrcanos Joins Sixth Doctor at SFX Weekender!

Did you all get your tickets for SFX Weekender 3, taking place this coming weekend?

Brian Blessed as King Yrcanos in Season 23 Doctor Who adventure MindwarpWe at Kasterborous certainly hope that you did because the schedules have been released for both days and it looks like you’re going to have a fantastic time whether you’re a Doctor Who fan or not!

On the Friday you’ve got Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred on the main stage in a Q & A session followed later in the day by Anthony Head (School Reunion, Death Comes To Time, Excelis trilogy) on his own to answer all of your questions. There will also be a screening of an episode of the classic seventh Doctor story Remembrance of the Daleks which will be introduced by McCoy and Aldred themselves. The actors will also be signing autographs at various times throughout the day but you will have to make sure that you have the right ticket pass for that privilege.

On the Saturday there’s even more Doctor Who related goodness in the form of Q & A panels with (separately) Old Sixey himself Colin Baker, Torchwood star Eve Myles and Being Human creator and Doctor Who writer Toby Whithouse. The legend that is Brian Blessed will also be appearing to answer questions which will hopefully include his appearance as King Yrcanos in Season 23′s The Trial of a Time Lord. The actors will also be signing autographs but again it depends on the ticket type you’ll be holding onto.

Some great films are scheduled to be shown and there will even be some stand up comedy from the two actors who played Holly in Red Dwarf, Hatty Hayridge and Norman Lovett.

All in all, there’s a cracking weekend ahead for all involved!

    Unless I’ve got my years muddled its the third SFX weekender not the fourth isn’t it?

    Hopefully the change of location will be better as Pontins Camber Sands, the location of the first two, was a complete tip…


    • Well spotted, Francis – Mez has been reporting from the future for us recently, via TARDIS, and it seems it was he who got his years muddled, not you!
