Fantom Events offer up a packed calendar of dedicated Doctor Who conventions for 2024

As January draws to a close, the Fantom Events calendar for 2024 is starting to take shape. The group, which organizes events throughout the year and across England, have announced three dedicated Doctor Who conventions. Valiant takes place in Sheffield this March, followed by Utopia in Milton Keynes in June, before the grand finale of Pandorica in Bristol in November.

Guests for the events have started to be announced too, with more to come. But already it’s shaping up to be the classic Fantom mix of Doctors, companions, guest actors and behind the scenes creators. Valiant will mark 55 years since the Second Doctor’s regeneration with a celebration of The War Games. Companions Frazer Hines and Wendy Padbury will be in attendance along with actors from both the Resistance and War Lords whose battle made up the ten episode epic. Utopia, meanwhile, will focus on the 35th anniversary of The Curse of Fenric. Cast from the WWII set vampire story are led by Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred themselves.
