* In addition to Peter Davison and Alex Kingston (the 5th Doctor and River Song respectively), Chicago Tardis is firming up their guest list for the upcoming November convention. Big names from Big Finish include Jason Haigh-Ellery (producer), Nicholas Briggs (writer/director and voice of the Daleks/Cybermen), Lisa Bowerman, (Bernice Summerfield) and the new 7th Doctor companion Beth Chalmers.
Other writers/editors/publisher include Ben Aaronovitch (7th Doctor era stories), Dr. Arnold T. Blumberg (Howe’s Transendental Toybox), Graeme Burk and Robert Smith (Time Unincorporated and the forthcoming Who Is The Doctor), Benjamin Cook (A Writer’s Tale, Christa Dickson and Lars Pearson (Mad Norwegian Press) and Tony Lee (IDW Doctor Who comics). Their website promises more to come…
One change to the program is Toby Hadoke (Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf) who will be unable to attend.
* Doctor Who Magazine recently announced the show will return for another 13 episode season seven in 2012, but as many of us suspected, it WILL be broken into two parts, and it WILL start in the fall of 2012. So once the current season six wraps next week with “The Wedding Of River Song”, we’ll get a Christmas special, and then no new who for about 8 months. I feel withdrawals kicking in already.
* And lastly, Matt Smith is chomping at the bit to get to the 50th anniversary special, and he’d love for it to be in 3D. “I love making Doctor Who, and I get to be part of that 50th year which they’ll do something mental for,” he tells Bang Showbiz. “You know it will be brilliant. I’m interested in all the 3D stuff. If it could be filmed for 3D TV that would be fun, especially with Doctor Who, but it’s very expensive. I don’t know how they’d do it.”
I imagine something with void stuff.
