Exterminate! New guest for sci-fi event
Saturday April 9 to Sunday April 10 Barnaby Edwards, the man under the dome of the Daleks from Doctor Who, will be at Sc-fi Scarborough next yesar.
Barnaby first worked on Doctor Who in 1993, when he played a Dalek in BBC1’s 30 Years in the Tardis.
Since then he has appeared in 18 television episodes, five editions of Doctor Who Confidential, three video games, two proms, several Blue Peter shows, an animated webcast and more than r 100 audio adventures for the awesome Big Finish Audio.
“Sci Fi Scarborough has always had an ethos of giving fans the chance to meet the creators, designers, writers, prop builders and technicians of their favourite genre series in person. It’s great to pull back the curtain and hear how your favourite characters have come to life and when you are talking about some of the most recognisable villains of all time, it was obvious that we had to have our favourite pepper shakers by the seaside,”said co-organiser Steve Dickinson.
Barnaby trained at the Guildford School of Acting and has been a professional actor and voice artist for more than 20 years, working extensively in theatre, television, film and radio. He has appeared on stage in the West End, at Shakespeare’s Globe and at numerous regional theatres. His television credits include Hollyoaks, EastEnders and Doctor Who.
Saturday November 4 at 7.30pm Tavaziva returns to the Stephen Joseph Theatre with Africarmen, a sumptuous and evocative dance production loosely based on Georges Bizet’s popular opera Carmen. Through a synthesis of ballet, contemporary and African dance, Bawren Tavaziva’s powerful choreography is performed by the dancers.
