The Glasgow Doctor Who Society are considering the possibility of arranging a one-day Doctor Who convention in 2014, most likely around May or June.
For the sake of clarity, we are nottalking about a massive Collectormania style event – Showmasters already have that kind of thing covered brilliantly and we have neither the resources nor the desire to compete on that level.
We’re talking about a convention more along the lines of Dimensions, Regenerations or Whooverville – a more intimate affair with around a hundred or so fans.
But we need to know that the support is there before we start planning in any detail.
If the event goes ahead, it would be a one day convention and standard admission would include access to all guest talks in the main convention hall plus at least one free autograph from each guest in attendance.
With that in mind, we would really like as many people as possible to answer the following four questions for us;
Please answer all of the questions as honestly as possible – if you wouldn’t attend unless the entire cast and crew from the last 8 years are there, we need to know that! So don’t tell us that you would turn up for an Auton and a photograph of a cameraman unless you mean it!
We will hopefully have an idea whether this is going to be possible in the very near future!
The Ice Warriors first appeared in Doctor Who in 1967 in the Second Doctor story ‘The Ice Warriors’ (funnily enough). They went on to appear with Patrick Troughton’s Second Doctor again in ‘The Seeds of Death’ and later appeared twice with Jon Pertwee’s Third Doctor.
Last night was their first appearance on the show in nearly 40 years, although they’ve been kept alive in additional literature and Big Finish releases.
Here’s a clip from their first story -
Join us in the next couple of days for the next Glasgow Doctor Who Society video blog, where you’ll see what everyone thinks about the episode and what we got up to at the meeting tonight!
