Doctor Who Stars Heading to Australia in 2014!
The Raggedy Man and the Girl Who Waited may no longer be coming to our television screens in new adventures, but that doesn’t mean that their quite done supporting the Doctor Who brand! Making their first joint appearance in Australia, Matt Smith (the recently departed Eleventh Doctor) and former companion, Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) will be taking part in Hub Production’s 2014 Whoniverse touring convention.
The tour begins on March 1st and will visit the cities of Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, and finish up in Melbourne on March 9th.
The event will feature a “fan Q&A” session with Smith and Gillan, as well as the opportunity for autographs and meet and greets. Tickets go on sale this month and can be found, along with other convention details, at the Hub Productions site. Now, if we could just get Matt and Karen to visit the far away land of Kentucky on a convention stop…*cough* Lexington Comic Con *cough*.
In related news, Billie Piper (Rose Tyler/The Bad Wolf) will also be making an appearance in Australia this year!
Appearing as part of the Oz Comic-Con lineup, Piper will be on hand as the convention rolls into Perth the last weekend of March and then Adelaide the following weekend. More info can be found at the Oz Comic-Con website.
The Whoniverse and Oz Comic-Con events sound fantastic and with recent interest in having Doctor Who film some upcoming episodes in the land Down Under, the timing of Piper, Smith, and Gillan’s visits couldn’t be better.
