Quad hosts special event for Who fans

Derby arts centre Quad will be holding an all-day event dedicated to all things Dr Who - Whooverville 6 - on Saturday, August 30, with Peter Davison, the fifth Doctor, as one of the special guests.

Whooverville is the East Midlands’ biggest annual get-together for fans of all ages of Doctor Who, organised by Derby’s local Doctor Who group, the Whoovers.

Whooverville is a chance to have your photo taken with the Tardis, catch up on gossip from the latest series, purchase new and classic merchandise, take part in a Doctor Who podcast, add to the autograph album and meet some of the people from in front of and behind the camera. Special guests include Deborah Watling, who played Victoria, companion to the second Doctor, Terry Molloy, who played Davros, creator of the Daleks; Michael Troughton (son of Second Doctor Patrick Troughton) and writer Bob Baker, who with Dave Martin wrote The Claws Of Axos, The Three Doctors and The Sontaran Experiment.

It takes place from 10am-6pm and tickets are £40, or £25 concessions and £10 for under tens. For information or to book, call 01332 290606.
