The Robots of Death at the BFI
The BFI have announced that their screening of the Fourth Doctor adventure The Robots of Death will include special guests Tom Baker (the Fourth Doctor), Louise Jameson (Leela) and Philip Hinchcliffe (Doctor Who producer from 1974-1977) as part of the Doctor Who At 50 season.
The announcement was made after the screening of the newly restored Third Doctor story The Mind of Evil.
The BFI Southbank will be screening The Robots of Death on Saturday 20th April at 2pm with tickets going on general sale at 11:30 am this morning. However, the tickets were made available to Champion members of the BFI last Monday and to standard members last Tuesday so you may not be able to get your hands on tickets straight away, returns and stand-bys are possible but you’ll have to be pretty on the ball to get your hands on some!
Screenings of the first three Doctor Who stories that have been shown at the BFI so far have sold out before general release, which on one hand is brilliant as it shows the popularity that Doctor Who has but on the other hand is terrible for all who do not have a membership with the BFI. However we’re sure that you can enrol in a membership whenever you like to give yourself a better opportunity to get involved in these special Doctor Who events over the year.
The BFI also announced that the story to be shown that will celebrate the Fifth Doctor’s era will be screened on Saturday 4th May but you’ll have to wait and see which tale that they have chosen to screen.
