The BFI’s Justin Johnson has confirmed for RadioTimes.com that the format for the day will be, for starters: “a panel about the in-between years [when Doctor Who was off the air] with Gary Russell, Jason Haigh-Ellery, Nick Briggs and Andrew Cartmel.”
Cartmel was Doctor Who’s script editor in the late 80s, while the others are, of course, well-known fans with multiple roles on Doctor Who and its offshoots, including a long association with Big Finish, the company that produces audio dramas.
The 90-minute TV Movie will be screened, “and then after the film it’ll be Paul McGann, Daphne Ashbrook and director Geoffrey Sax”. Justin adds: “Marcus Hearn is signing copies of his book, Doctor Who – The Vault afterwards (three weeks before it is officially published).”
The event kicks off at 10am on Saturday 5 October.
