DOC­TOR WHO Fes­ti­val Up­date

Starburst Magazine - - Outside The Box -

More guests have been an­nounced for the Doc­tor Who Fes­ti­val at the Ex­Cel in Lon­don’s Dock­lands be­tween Novem­ber 13th and 15th. Join­ing cur­rent Doc­tor Peter Ca­paldi and showrun­ner Steven Mof­fat at the event will be Michelle Gomez, the latest in­car­na­tion of the Doc­tor’s deadly en­emy The Master (now known as Missy) and In­grid Oliver, who plays UNIT’s Doc­tor-ob­sessed sci­en­tist Os­good, killed off in Death in Heaven, but res­ur­rected in some form or another in episodes seven and eight of the up­com­ing se­ries. The Fes­ti­val will of­fer at­ten­dees an ex­clu­sive and in­ter­ac­tive glimpse into how the world of Doc­tor Who is cre­ated and there will be photo op­por­tu­ni­ties with Ca­paldi, Oliver and Gomez plus the op­por­tu­nity to have a photo taken on a set from Se­ries Nine. As we re­ported last month, a sim­i­lar event will take place in Syd­ney on the week­end of Novem­ber 21st/22nd and whilst the guest list is still be­ing fi­nalised, it has been re­vealed that reg­u­lar new se­ries writer and long-time fan Mark Gatiss will be in at­ten­dance at the an­tipodean event. Mem­bers of the BAFTA award win­ning Real FX team, led by Danny Har­g­reaves, who pro­vide the bangs and flashes of the show’s vi­su­als, will also be ap­pear­ing at Syd­ney to demon­strate the art of cre­at­ing Doc­tor Who’s ex­plo­sive spe­cial ef­fects. Tick­ets and fur­ther in­for­ma­tion will be avail­able from doc­tor­whofes­ti­
