London Film and Comic Con plays host to Doctor Who stars old and new this July

Susan Twist has been throughout time and space in this year’s season of Doctor Who. Just last weekend we finally learned the dark secret at the heart of all those cameos. But her next visitation will be to the Olympia in London this July for London Film and Comic Con. Twist’s first major convention appearance has just been announced and she’s just one of the many stars from the show attending the convention taking place on the 5th to 7th of July.

Other stars from this season include Lenny Rush, currently appearing as UNIT’s scientific advisor Morris in The Legend of Ruby Sunday/Empire of Death, the legendary Dame Siân Phillips, who appeared in 73 Yards, and Josie Sedgwick-Davis who played Cilla Black in The Devil’s Chord. Plus, of course, there’s a host of others who’ve appeared in the show over the years.
