BBC has announced that they will be holding for the first time in about 30 years the official Dr Who convention on March 24 and 25 at the Millennium Canter in Cardiff. That is in the UK for those geographically challenged people (that includes yours truly) . For those lucky enough to live near there or have the resources to make it this marks the first time like I said before that BBC has created their own convention of Dr Who since the 20th Anniversary (Twenty Years of a Time Lord) in 1983 which was held at Longleat House one in UK. Which Longleat also has a permanent Dr Who exhibition.
I joked about the geographically challenged people in the previous paragraph because for us in the States it’s pretty impossible to get there. But on a side note I really hope that they do what the Creation team did with the Star Trek Convention in Vegas and stream some of the event live from the convention. I don’t see why not they have the tech and resources available to do it. Or at least make a rich special about the event to share on BBC America. Honestly out of the 2 the streaming would be my first choice or even better yet both. Well what ever it will be it will be. I am just looking forward to see who of the Drs other then Smith will show up and what exhibits they will put on display.
The Official Doctor Who Convention is the ultimate event for Doctor Who enthusiasts. With unparalleled access to the cast and crew, this event offers fans a one-off chance to immerse themselves behind the scenes of the world’s longest running sci-fi show.
No other Doctor Who event gets you closer. Delve, as never before, into the creative minds behind the hit TV show, with unique opportunities to witness experts demonstrate how the special effects and prosthetics have created some of the iconic scenes and characters. Interactive panel discussions with cast and crew, photo and autograph sessions and a show case of official costumes and props, will give every true fan the chance to celebrate and share their passion for all things Doctor Who.
Already confirmed are Matt Smith and Steven Moffat, with more special guests to be announced in the coming weeks!
Your ticket includes:
Interactive Q&A panel discussions with the cast and crew
Prosthetics & special effects demonstrations
Official props and costume displays
Official merchandise & collectables
The Official Doctor Who Convention is a one day Convention, whereby the programme of events is the same for Saturday and Sunday. Visitors are therefore encouraged to choose which day they would like to attend.
