Curse of Fenric

McCoy at Screen-Con Event

The Seventh Doctor himself, Sylvester McCoy will be entertaining the good people of North Shields when he attends the sci-fi event Screen-Con at The Parks Sports Centre on Saturday May 4.

Remembrance of the Daleks

Not only will visitors be able to meet the Doctor himself but they’ll also be able to step inside the TARDIS and meet one of the Doctor’s deadliest foes, the Daleks.

Other guests at the event include Jeremy Bulloch, who played the bounty hunter Boba Fett in Star Wars, and Hal the Archer in The Time Warrior (1973/74), Richard Leparmentier, who played Admiral Motti in Star Wars and Marvel artist Paul Davidson.

Organiser, Alan Elliott commented:

This is an exciting event for the region; we’ve been very lucky to get such amazing guests on board and the support from local people has been great.

This is something we hope will be an annual event for the region and we hope to attract people from all over the country. We already have guests coming from London and even a couple from Norway.

Prizes will also be awarded for best costume and for a children’s art competition.

For tickets and further information please visit the official Screen-Con website.

With thanks to Alan.

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.
