Featuring a host of film premieres of the latest cult offerings, literary awards honouring the great and good in their respective fields and exploratory special events designed to further your appreciation of genre classics; this year’s event is bursting at the seams with sci-fi goodness.

And on Sunday May 5th Sci-Fi-London 12 will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who with two panels dedicated to the Time Lord’s adventures in print.

Firstly (scheduled fr 12.30pm), novelists Paul Cornell (Human Nature, Scream of the Shalka), J.T. Colgan (Dark Horizons), Terrance Dicks (Doctor Who and the Giant Robot and a feast of others) and Tommy Donbavand (Shroud of Sorrow) will chat about continuing the Doctor’s trips in prose and what inspires them to tell tales of the thousand-year-old time traveller.

Following this (1.15pm) comic book writers and artists such as Andrew Cartmel, Scott Gray, Mark Buckingham and Adrian Salmon, will discuss continuing the Doctor’s adventures in serialised comic strip’s featured in the likes of Doctor Who Magazine, IDW’s Doctor Who comic and many, many dedicated fanzines.

Concluding the celebrations (from 2pm) fans will be treated to a screening of the 1960s’ film Dr Who and the Daleks, starring Peter Cushing as Dr Who.

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.
