For the past five years, CONsole Room has hosted multi-day events celebrating all things Dr. Who. This year, they’ll return for three days of talks, room parties, workshops, and more. Celebrity guests include Katy Manning, who played companion Jo Grant opposite the third Doctor (Jon Pertwee), and Neve McIntosh, who plays Madame Vastra, an ancient lizard who finds herself awakened in 19th-century England (where she lends her skills to Scotland Yard and marries a human woman, naturally). Panels will cover a variety of topics, including plot inconsistencies, the science behind some of the ideas presented in the series, and the beloved (and often terrifying!) Christmas specials. Other fun to be had includes a cosplay contest, Dr. Who seed art, a vendor market, artist alley, and workshops covering things like sci-fi makeup, prop building, and fan-fiction writing.
