We’re setting the wayback machine for 2003 this week, highlighting Colin Baker’s first appearance at Chicago TARDIS.
What would a 50th Anniversary Doctor Who party be without the Doctor in attendance? Well, we’ll never know, because Colin Baker will be joining us Thanksgiving weekend for his first visit in 5 years. We’re extra excited, because we haven’t had Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant together before! (Can you say “Sixie and Peri Panel”? Knew you could!)
Our featured flashback foto (er, PHOTO) for this Friday is Terry Molloy and Stewart Bevan on stage at Chicago TARDIS 2004. Ah, those were the days, with the lighted TARDIS wall backdrop…. Anyway, we offer the photo in celebration of Terry returning to our stage this November.
Chicago TARDIS is pleased to welcome back Terry Molloy. Best known to Doctor Who fans as Davros (classic series stories “Resurrection of the Daleks,” “Revelation of the Daleks,” and “Remembrance of the Daleks,” plus nearly a dozen Big Finish audios), Terry returns to Chicago for the first time since 2004.
At the Chicago TARDIS 2012 Closing Ceremonies, we announced our first four guests for 2013. Fittingly, together they represent the first four decades of Doctor Who. They are also some of the most-loved companions in the Whoniverse. Joining us– in order of appearance on the show– for our fantastic 50th Anniversary Celebration are
Frazer Hines, who played 2nd Doctor companion Jamie McCrimmon
Louise Jameson, who played 4th Doctor companion Leela
Nicola Bryant, who played 5th & 6th Doctor companion Peri Brown
Daphne Ashbrook, who played 8th Doctor companion Grace Holloway.
We’re excited to be welcoming back all four of these fabulous actors to our convention.
