The NDK was held at the Marriott DTC on 14- 16th September, and celebrates anime – so it’s a surprise to hear how the BBC’s flagship show has taken over! Doctors old and new wandered throughout the dealer’s room, alongside Weeping Angels and the Master, with sellers displaying Doctor Who t-shirts and other collectables. There was even one who had a shirt for an infant, proudly stating, ‘Stormaggedon: Dark Lord of All”! You want one, right?
Meanwhile, in the Artists’ Alley, Kevin Yan displayed two pieces of Doctor Who art, featuring Doctors Ten and Eleven. You can read more about how Whovians unexpectedly took over the NDK here.
It’s a great testament to the show’s success, of course, and how Doctor Who has increased its audience through heavy promotion on BBC America (and episodes set in New York, the Wild West etc.).
