During a packed week of Doctor Who fun, we’ve also had the announcement of David Tennant for London Comic Con
This weekend’s array of events are spoiling Doctor Who fans for choice. The Whooverille fan convention is on at QUAD in Derby, and the British Film Institute event for the new animated version of The Abominable Snowmen was on tonight too. Meanwhile Birmingham plays host once more to Collectormania and no less than four Doctors (and a Master!) Jodie Whittaker, Jo Martin, Sylvester McCoy and Colin Baker are all appearing there this weekend, as is Sacha Dhawan. There was even an opportunity to get group photos with all the Doctors. But even before this weekend if halfway through, Showmasters have announced a special guest for Collectormania’s sister convention, London Comic Con, this November: David Tennant!
The once and future Doctor, David Tennant famously played the Tenth Doctor from 2005 to 2009. He then reprised the role for 50th Anniversary story The Day of the Doctor and has been back in the TARDIS again filming for the 60th Anniversary celebrations next year. Appropriately enough, Tennant will be on stage at the Olympia venue and meeting fans on Sunday the 20th of November. That’s almost exactly a year before his return is likely to air. It’s also just in time to act as a celebration of Doctor Who’s 59th anniversary on the 23rd.
Tennant’s fellow Doctors, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Matt Smith will also be at the con
Tennant will be joining previously announced Doctor Who stars Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, and Matt Smith at the event. The world of villainy will also be well represented. Julian Glover, who played Count Scarlioni in fan favourite story City of Death, will be there. As will Harry Lloyd, who played Son of Mine opposite Tennant in Human Nature/Family of Blood.
You can buy your tickets for November from the London Comic Con site now, starting from £21 for an adult ticket to the event. But note that you need to buy any autographs or photo opportunities separately (photo tickets are also listed on the site.)
