Who’s at the Playhouse brings an impressive line-up of Doctor Who stars to Surrey in February
Doctor Who convention Who’s at the Playhouse returns to the Epsom Playhouse next month. Boasting two Doctors, seven companions, and seven other actors from the world of Doctor Who the event on the 12th of February will arguably one of the biggest events of 2023 announced so far.
Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy headline the guest list. Best known for playing the Sixth and Seventh Doctor they memorably returned to the show last year as ‘Guardians of the Edge,’ subconscious expressions of the Doctor’s past selves which guide Jodie Whittaker’s incarnation back from the literal brink of death.
Another member of the Power of the Doctor cast joining the pair is Katy Manning. Manning played Jo Grant (later Jo Jones) for three seasons of Doctor Who from 1971-1973, before returning to guest star in The Sarah Jane Adventures and cameoing in Power as a member of Graham’s support group for former companions. After decades on the convention scene, Manning also has a superb reputation as one of its most entertaining and enthusiastic guests.
Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Katy Manning, Maureen O’Brien, Peter Purves, John Leeson, Mark Strickson and Nicola Bryant are just some of the Playhouse guests
Other former companions joining the fun at the Playhouse include Maureen O’Brien, who played 25th century orphan Vicki (1965), Peter Purves who was space pilot Steven (1965-1966), John Leeson who voiced robot dog K9 (1977-2010), Mark Strickson who played alien schoolboy Turlough (1983-1984), and Nicola Bryant who was American college student Peri (1984-1986).
Other guests include Paul Lavers (The Androids of Tara), Colin Spaull (Revelation of the Daleks, Rise of the Cybermen), Trevor Cooper (Revelation of the Daleks), Michael Troughton (Last Christmas), Derek Martin (HAVOC), and Jon Davey (almost any 21st century monster you can name).
