Af­ter an im­pres­sive 50th an­niver­sary Cel­e­bra­tion in 2013 the Beeb’s of­fi­cial Time Lord con is re­turn­ing this Novem­ber, with Twelfth Doc­tor Peter Ca­paldi and head writer Steven Mof­fat in at­ten­dance.

The week­end- long event has a slightly dif­fer­ent fo­cus this time round with ac­tiv­i­ties de­signed to give fans a glimpse into how the world of Doc­tor Who is brought to the screen. There’ll be cast and crew pan­els, cos­tumes and props on show and you can even have your pic­ture taken on an ac­tual se­ries nine set. Learn what it takes to ap­pear on screen along­side the Doc­tor at drama school ses­sions, ex­pe­ri­ence what goes on be­hind the cam­era at a se­ries of in­ter­ac­tive work­shops or swing by the shop­ping vil­lage where an ex­ten­sive range of of­fi­cial Who merch and photo op­por­tu­ni­ties will be avail­able.

Want to put your Who knowl­edge to the test? The Fan Chal­lenge pits you against the big­gest Who­vians in the uni­verse. Or show off your hand- made Romana cos­tume at the Cos­play Show­case. If you’ve ever wanted to go un­der the skin of the Doc­tor there’s no bet­ter place. “I can’t be­lieve we’re go­ing to give away our se­crets!” Steven Mof­fat says. “This is the clos­est you could pos­si­bly get to find­ing out what hap­pens on set and how this mag­i­cal show is put to­gether.” Can’t ar­gue with that.

Tick­ets are still on sale at the time of writ­ing and cost £ 68 for adults or £ 32.25 for any­one 16 and un­der. A TARDIS ticket is avail­able for £ 116 and gets you seats in the front block for pan­els, an of­fi­cial sou­venir pro­gramme, a lim­ited edi­tion T- shirt and ac­cess to a lounge ex­clu­sive to TARDIS ticket hold­ers. Can’t at­tend the whole week­end? No prob­lem – the Fes­ti­val pro­gramme is the same each day, so it’s pos­si­ble to see ev­ery­thing in 24 hours. http:// bit. ly/ WhoFes­ti­val
