Gallifrey One’s Convention Guest Apocalypse
A virtual who’s who of Doctor Who will be attending the already-sold-out Gallifrey One 2014 convention in Los Angeles on February 14-16. Celebrating its 25th anniversary (hey, that’s half as old as Doctor Who itself!), Gallifrey One will have special guest Billie Piper making her first major North American convention appearance!
Rose Tyler will have two Doctors to pick from, as the “newly” regenerated Paul McGann and the always sensibly dressed Colin Baker will also be in attendance. The Sixth and Eighth Doctors both recently appeared in the most excellent 50th anniversary celebration film, The Five(-ish) Doctors Reboot.
A Medusa Cascade of former companions and co-stars will also be there, including: Frazer Hines (Jamie), Nicola Bryant (Peri), Katy Manning (Jo), Deborah Watling (Victoria), Matthew Waterhouse (Adric), the legendary Jean Marsh (Sara Kingdom), and many more. Two Russell T. Davies-era guest stars, Annette Badland (Margaret the Slitheen, Wizards Vs. Aliens) and Lachele Carl (newswoman Trinity Wells) will also be making their first appearances at a USA convention.
Many other Who writers (Terrance Dicks, Paul Cornell), Big Finish-related guests (Tracey Childs, Gareth Thomas), Doctor Who luminaries (Toby Hadoke, Gary Russell), and sci-fi celebrities (Chase Masterson, Rachel Skarsten) will all also be there on Valentine’s Day weekend.
Once again, Gallifrey One 2014 is sold out, so you’re too late if you want tickets. But, if you going (Mr. Lucky Von Luckerston!), let us know who you’re most hoping to see there! And ask Billie if she wants my phone number.
