Jo and the Lone Cyberman are joining the host of Power of the Doctor stars at next month’s Gallifrey One
The big day is a little over a month away, and Gallifrey One is continuing to add guests to its epic line up for this year’s convention. Katy Manning played Jo Grant alongside Jon Pertwee’s Third Doctor for three seasons from 1971 to 1973. She later returned as Jo in The Sarah Jane Adventures’ Death of the Doctor. And most recently she featured Thirteenth Doctor finale The Power of the Doctor. Gallifrey have also just announced her fellow Power of the Doctor actor Patrick O’Kane (Ashad, the Lone Cyberman) and the episode’s director Jamie Magnus Stone.
In fact, the convention will provide quite the Power reunion, with Katy Manning and Patrick O’Kane joining the previously announced Janet Fielding (Tegan) and Sophie Aldred (Ace). Best of all the Doctor herself, Jodie Whittaker, will be the headline guest.
Other new names recently announced for Gallifrey One include Daniel Anthony who played Clyde in all five series of The Sarah Jane Adventures. From the world of Big Finish stars Jon Culshaw (The Brigadier, the Master and many others), Daisy Ashford (Liz Shaw), Lauren Cornelius (Dodo), and writer Matt Fitton are on the way. Doctor Who comic book artists Christopher Jones and Blair Shedd are amongst the newly announced guests too.
They all join previously announced guests like the Sixth Doctor, Colin Baker, companions Wendy Padbury (Zoe) and Frazer Hines (Jamie).
