Strong Doctor Who Presence At Sci-Fi Weekender Event

Doctor Who is now made in southern Wales – in and around Cardiff – but, in a few weeks’ time, the Doctor will also be present at an SF event in northern Wales.

Sci-Fi Weekender (formerly the SFX Weekender) takes place on 1-3 March at Hafan y Mor Holiday Park and includes, according to the organisers:

‘Big-name guests, interviews, Q&A sessions, movie screenings, comic workshops, videogaming, music, book readings and plenty more. It’s all about bringing like-minded people together for a weekend structured around four pillar events: the entertaining Imaginarium cabaret, the sweeping Maskerade party (with awesome DJing from Craig Charles), and the fiendish Blastermind pub quiz.’

The guests this year include Peter Davison, who played the fifth Doctor (1982-4), Frazer Hines, who played Jamie McCrimmon, companion to the second Doctor (1966-9, 1983, 1985), and Brian Blessed, who played warrior king Yrcanos in the sixth Doctor epic Trial of a Time Lord (1986).
