Paul and Sophie Go To The Ball

If you’re in Dorset this weekend you can catch Paul McGann and Sophie Aldred at the SF Ball convention in Bournemouth.

The event runs from 7th-9th February at The Carrington House Hotel, and promises a warm welcome at the “three day social experience”.

Other sci-fi guests of note include Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Marina Sirtis and Chris Barrie from Red Dwarf. A good line-up of guests connected to publishing is headed by novelist Robert Rankin.

Sophie has fond memories of filming Doctor Who in the Dorset area, which holds a special place in Who history as the location for the original series’ last ever scenes. She sums up the pressures of shooting on a tight schedule rather nicely:

It was due to be in Perivale but we ran out of time and so we had to find some bushes in Warmwell and went there instead.

The glamour of being in Doctor Who, eh? For more information and ticket details head to SFB Events.

About the Author

Jonathan remembers catching Tony Hughes's Doctor in BBC Schools Mathsshow when he was off school in 1975. This more than made up for having chickenpox. Something of an old hand by this time, he had learned from The Doctor Who Monster Book that there were other Doctors and adventures to discover - an exciting prospect for a five year old.
