Doctors Rally to Janet’s Charity Convention

Sad news from a new Doctor Who convention set up to raise funds for Project Motor House – Janet Fielding has pulled out of the event after being diagnosed with cancer.

Peter Davison and Janet Fielding in Resurrection of the DaleksBut, in testament to the bond of the Who community Peter Davison has rallied around his fellow Doctors David Tennant, Sylvester McCoy, Colin Baker and Paul McGann to help raise both funds for the cause and Janet’s spirits.

The full statement reads:

Janet Fielding has a new fight on her hands not against the Daleks or Cybermen but against cancer. Peter Davison has swung into action and enlisted the help of his fellow Doctors to launch Project MotorMouth. It will not only raise money for a good cause but also keep Janet’s spirits up.

Kicking off the fiftieth anniversary, the charity fundraiser will raise money Project Motor House – an attempt by the locals of Ramsgate to refurbish West Cliff Hall ‘the old motor museum’ into an exciting mixed use venue for Thanet’s young people to get hands on experience within the business world.

Taking place at the Copthorne Hotel in Slough-Windsor on Saturday 19th January 2013 between 10:00am and 5:00pm tickets are limited to just 300 and cost £100 each – for more information on the event head over to the Tenth Planet Events website.

To give you an idea of the scale and importance of the project, this video has been produced, introduced by Janet:

Everyone here at Kasterborous wishes Janet Fielding a full and successful recovery, and we hope that anyone reading who can lend their support to the project goes ahead and does so!

About the Author


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
