Doctor Who Celebrate Doctor Who's 50th anniversary in Manchester!

Published on November 1st, 2013 | by Nick Kitchen


Manchester’s Who At Fifty “Radio Times” Schedule

The upcoming Who at Fifty celebration has released a Radio Times style schedule of events to accompany the previously released vintage-style cover image!

The schedule – by wizard designer Colin Brockhurst – gives a full look at the different events and shows being prepared to mark the occasion. Ranging from screenings of The Day of the Doctor (Sat. 23) and An Adventure in Space and Time (Fri. 22, pending confirmation) to a live recreation of the very first episode of Doctor Who, An Unearthly Child (Nov. 17-19), starring Phil Dennison as the Doctor, there is definitely something for every Whovian to get excited about (including sock puppets…erm…if sock puppets are your thing).

The fringe festival runs from Nov. 16-30th. Tickets are available at the door or in advance from Given the massive interest in all things 50th Anniversary, you may want to get your tickets ahead of time. You can check out Christian’s wonderful Who at Fifty preview here and connect with Manchester’s Who at Fifty on Facebook and by using FB/Twitter #whoatfifty.

Will you be celebrating in Manchester?
