The Time of the Wilderness years

Doctor Who would not be welcomed back to our screens for a few more years, but Chicago TARDIS was coming alive.

Established by fans, for fans, the fandom may have expanded, but our convention has stayed the same intimate event we always intended it to be.

Read below for an extensive list of our past guests, and feel free to visit our Facebook page for photo albums of many moments from past conventions.
