Colin Baker Among Guests As TimeWarp Comes to the South West!
A new event is coming to the South West this weekend: TimeWarp features a great cast of actors and actresses, and sees the Sixth Doctor, Colin Baker, paired with Peri Brown herself (aka Nicola Bryant) once more.
The event couples Q&A sessions with signings and photo shoots at much more accessible prices than many other conventions. And it’s not just the Sixth Doctor era represented either: there are companions from across Classic Who, including Mark Strickson (Turlough), Katy Manning (Jo Grant), Deborah Watling (Victoria Waterfield), and Richard Franklin (Captain Yates).
Event organiser, Ian Fraser, told Kasterborous:
I think the guest list itself is exciting; in any circumstance, having so many of the BIG companions all at one time rarely happens because actors have very busy schedules… It’s a signing in one sense, but then we’ve given attendees all the extra bits that they’d normally only get at a convention – but without the huge ticket cost!
Keep your eyes out for a full interview with Fraser in which he discusses planning TimeWarp, and the legacy of the first convention he held in the South West, 18 years ago.
Davros, or Terry Molloy as some may know him, will also be appearing on Sunday, alongside Seventh Doctor era Script Editor, Andrew Cartmel (who we previously interviewed about his Script Doctor rerelease), and The Greatest Show in the Galaxy‘s Dee Sadler (Flowerchild).
Here’s the full list of stars:
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY:
Colin Baker *; Nicola Bryant; Wendy Padbury; Sarah Sutton; Deborah Watling; Damaris Hayman; Will Thorp; and Derek Martin.
Louise Jameson; and Mark Strickson.
Katy Manning; Dee Sadler; Andrew Cartmel; Terry Molloy; and Richard Franklin.
*Please note that Colin Baker will be appearing across the weekend, but will leave at 1pm on Sunday due to work commitments.
TimeWarp is held in Weston-super-Mare at The Playhouse (just back from the sea front) on 5th-6th July 2014. Find out more at the event’s website. Tickets are obtainable in advance or on the door.
