Canadian Doctor Who fans are in for a treat this summer as Fan Expo Canada has just revealed that the three most popular new series companions are ALL going to be at the event taking place in Toronto from September 3-6. Billie Piper, Karen Gillan and Jenna Coleman were just announced as featured guests. Now that they have the most popular recent companions locked up, will they get a Doctor? They have had some over the years including Matt Smith and Colin Baker. Stay tuned to TIMD for more Fan Expo Doctor Who details as they are announced!
There is a companion who is going to be at the Toronto Comicon this coming weekend, but now there’s a Doctor as well. Karen Gillan will be attending the show, known of course for her role as Amy Pond. Joining her (though I am sure a wall of security will keep them from ever meeting) are the guys from Doctor Who Dark Journey including Andrew Chalmers, the Cool Beans Doctor!
If you are in the Toronto area this weekend, check out the show! AM Audio Media (www.amaudiomedia.com) will be at Toronto Comic Con at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre March 20, 21, 22 – Booth A182. Join the award winning cast and crew, chat about the series with them. Not only can you meet the guys and gals, but you can also listen to a preview of the upcoming Series 2, be amonst the first to purchase the first pressing of Dark Journey on CD, and help support them by spending all your comic money on their swag, including Doctor Who and Dark Journey buttons!
And if you are real lucky you might see me there. I will be in attending on Sunday and will be hanging out with the guys for a while!
Karen Gillan is about to star in a new series for ABC in the US. The series is called ‘Selfie’ and from the promo doing the rounds, Karen appears to be the main star of the piece and she appears to be playing a severe narcissist.
It might not be the cup of tea that most Who-fans tune into, but it looks to have the potential to be funny and at a guess, popular. The only thing that’s disappointing is to hear her doing an American accent. This writer would like to see people on the whole using their own accents when working abroad. It works both ways across the pond (did you see what I did there?) lest we forget ‘Evolution of the Daleks’. Don’t get me started on fake Australian accents.
I reckon I’ll tune in and give it a go. What do you think?
Your Monday Morning News Round Up is a little late today, but it’s a holiday in Canada and we are taking advantage of it. Here’s a collection of what made the news last week. Follow us on twitter @troughtonsmydoc to get all the news as it happens!
The RT released a YouTube video last week showing some of the restoration work being done on Enemy Of The World and Web Of Fear. Worth noting is that the video was shot before the omnirumour even broke in June last year.
