Dorium Comes to Long Island

What is the first question? The question everyone should be asking? It should be: How do I get to L.I. WHO, Long Island, New York’s Doctor Who Convention?!

That talkative big blueberry of an alien, Dorium Maldovar – well, actor Simon Fisher-Becker – has just been added to the already impressive list of names appearing at the three-day event.

dw-dorium-hp3Time is running out; the convention, which serves the Long Island and greater New York area, will be held in just about two months time! Taking place at the beautiful Clarion Hotel and Conference Center (formerly the Holiday Inn) in Ronkonkoma NY, L.I. WHO runs the weekend of November 8-10, 2013.

Room rates are $89 (plus taxes) per night at the hotel and a 3-day pass to the convention is $75.

Other one-day passes are available. In addition to newly-announced guest Fisher-Becker, the convention has an impressive line-up, including: Seventh Doctor, Sylvester McCoy (in his first Long Island appearance since 1999), Frazer Hines (Second Doctor companion Jamie McCrimmon), Daphne Ashbrook (Eighth Doctor lady friend Dr. Grace Holloway), First Doctor director Waris Hussein, and the busy (cough cough) Ian McNeice (Winston Churchill).

Many other guests, such as writers John Peel and David J. Howe, are also scheduled to appear.

If you will be in the Greater New York area on the second weekend in November, L.I. WHO sounds like a fun-filled convention to crash. For even more information, go to their official website or to the L.I. WHO Facebook page.

    Why is Ian McNeice busy?

    I’m a local, been planning on going to this since the cardboard ad fell out of my DWM a month or so back. To be honest I’m kind of surprised something so cool and actually pretty impressive as, far as guests go, will be happening so close to home!

Tell us what you think!
