CON NEWS: Peter Capaldi Comes to Baltimore!

Are you ready to rock, (Re)Gen? Because we can now officially announce that Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi will be joining us in Baltimore for Year 4!

Peter played the Doctor from the end of 2013 to this past Christmas, but has also appeared as Caecilius in the Tenth Doctor episode “Fires of Pompeii” and as Frobisher in Torchwood: Children of Earth. He’s also an accomplished writer, Academy Award-winning director, musician… and he’s kind of a big Doctor Who fan, we’ve heard! He’ll be joining us Saturday and Sunday — so register now if you haven’t, because tickets are likely to sell out fast!

Also, in case you didn’t catch it on Twitter this morning, Peter’s presence means a slight change to our standard con shirt:

If you’ve already ordered, this is the version you’ll be getting (don’t worry, we’re not that picky!). And if you haven’t … the’re $20 for S-XL sizes and $25 for 2XL-5XL. We will have a few in standard sizes at the con, but if you don’t order in advance, we can’t guarantee we’ll have one in your size — so order early to be sure!

Speaking of extras, you might want to consider VIP tiers to get an extra boost out of the con. VIP 4 will include preferred seating in Main Events, so you can be right up front for all the big panels! You’ll also get our year 4 art print (design coming soon), VIP “Doctor Hoot” shirt featuring the First and Twelfth Doctors, an adorable glow-in-the-dark Cyberman zipper pull, and all other perks from Tiers 1-3! Check them out on our merch page.

Autograph and photo-op pre-orders are also now available for pre-order. Prices are:

Autograph or Solo Photo: $105 ($100 + $5 for credit card processing fee)
Peter Capaldi/Michelle Gomez Group Photo: $168
Three Doctors (Peter D./Colin/Peter C.) Group Photo: $190

Photo ops will be sold by day. Choose Saturday or Sunday for your photo. Closer to time (about a month away from the con, or around when the programming schedule goes up), we’ll notify you of available time slots and ask you for your top three so you can plan your photo op into your con day!

Also, a quick reminder that if a photo op isn’t available to buy online, that doesn’t mean there won’t be pre-orders. We are still awaiting pricing information for some of our guests, and will make an announcement when they are available. Additionally, more group photo-op options will become available once our programming schedule goes live.

So, what are you waiting for? Join us in Baltimore to welcome Peter Capaldi, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Michelle Gomez, and many more for what’s shaping up to be our most amazing year ever!

Big Announcement Delayed; More Announcements Here!

There’s been a collision in the space/time continuum! Our Big Announcement is so big, we’ve become aware that making the event as accessible as possible to every fan will require further meetings with the hotel!

As you know, making things accessible, inclusive, and fair to the fans is what we are all about. We couldn’t abide by an experience that is less than amazing for our attendees. Because of this, we must delay our announcement until 10AM EST this coming Friday! Thank you all for your understanding.

However!

Your patience and excitement have been so awesome, we don’t want to leave you empty-handed. So we do have a few other announcements to launch today, starting with a few last-minute guest additions!

First, Big Finish fans will be happy to know that we’ve invited Lisa Greenwood, the actress behind Flip Jackson, to the event! Flip traveled with the Sixth Doctor… will she have some interesting stories to tell when she meets back up with Colin? We can’t wait to find out!

Also rejoining us are singer Cat Smith, comedian Hannah Harkness, writer and professor Dr. Arnold T. Blumberg, and Dalek master Steve Gostelow! We’re looking forward to having them on panels and in workshops once again.

Finally, we have one more little goodie for you… the design for this year’s standard shirt!

Designed by Ginger Hoesly and printed at Imagination Print and Design, this 80s-reminiscent shirt celebrates our Fifth and Sixth Doctor guests at the event! Con shirts can be purchased by anyone, with our without a VIP membership, and are priced at $20 for S-XL sizes and $25 for 2XL-5XL. If you want a shirt, your best bet is to order it before the event; we will have a very few shirts available at the merch table for sale in common sizes, but ordering in advance will ensure you have as many as you want in the sizes you need!

Head to the registration page to add shirts to your existing registration… and if you haven’t registered yet? Well, we highly recommend it. Because our big announcement is a-comin’!

CON NEWS: More Actors and Writers Join Our 2018 Guest List!

The 2018 guest list has grown again! We’re bringing back some fan favorite guests, and introducing two more Classic actors to the Onezumi Events family!

 

First, we’re happy to welcome Janet Fielding to the event! Janet played Tegan Jovanka, bridging the regeneration from Tom Baker to Peter Davison, and has also appeared in Big Finish audios and 2013’s Five(ish) Doctors Reboot!

Continuing to round out the Fifth Doctor era, we’re also bringing in Mark Strickson, who appeared as Vislor Turlough! Mark has lent his voice to both Big Finish and DVD audio commentaries, and went on to study zoology and direct and produce wildlife documentaries.

 

Now, you know we have to bring in some writers… and we’ve got three fan favorites returning!

Dalek writer Rob Shearman is back again, ready to share more stories with the fans. In addition to contributing stories to Doctor Who in many media, he’s also a writer of weird and wonderful horror in worlds of his own.

Author John Peel is also returning! John has contributed to the Target novelization range, and also has several series of his own. Along with Rob, he’s a go-to guy when it comes to talking about the Daleks in Doctor Who fiction.

And finally, Keith R.A. deCandido joins us once more! Keith is a regular writer for many different sci-fi and genre franchises, and once shared anthology space with a young writer named Steven Moffat. Maybe Keith can help us find out whatever happened to him…

 

They all join our current guest list — Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Michelle Gomez, Rachel Talalay, Sarah Sutton, Carole Ann Ford, and many more — for this year’s event in Baltimore! Register now to join the fun and get the best price for you and your family!

Rock Out with Our 2018 VIP Shirt!

Want a special way to commemorate this year’s (Re)Generation Who, while helping small businesses and indie creators? Grab our latest “Doctor Hoot” shirt!

The limited-edition design harks back to this Christmas’s Twice Upon a Time, reflects the presence of both Hartnell- and Capaldi-era guests at this year’s event, and serves as a reminder that we are (as ever) the con for Whovians of every generation. The faded halftone art was created by con graphic designer Ginger Hoesly, whose work has been featured on BBC America’s Doctor’s Notes and YouTube’s Doctor Who Fan Show.

The shirt is available only as part of our $60 Tier 2 VIP package, which also includes a limited-edition art print (art coming soon), early access to the vendor room, and an invite to our “ReGenerators” party. Other tiers include charms, preferred seating in our Main Events room, and (if you’re extra generous) free standard admission to the con for life!

Check out our prices for VIP and other merch on our Merchandise Page, then head over to our Registration Page to register for the event and add a few goodies onto your membership. If you’re already registered, you can still add extras — instructions are on the Merchandise Page!

PotterVerse Lives! Check out our sister con this August!

From David Tennant as Barty Crouch Jr. to David Bradley as Argus Filch, Doctor Who fans know all too well that there’s lots of crossover between their favorite show and the world of Harry Potter. Last year, Onezumi Events kicked off PotterVerse in Baltimore to bring (Re)Gen-style fun to the Potter fan community… and we’re doing it again in 2018!

PotterVerse 2 will be taking place August 17-19 at Rockville’s Bethesda North Marriott. We’re looking forward to bringing in more amazing guests and creators for you to meet, as well as assembling more family-friendly programming, parties, and special events for fans to enjoy!

Registration is now open on PotterVerseCon.com. You can also sign up for the Vendor Room or Artist Alley, and send in programming suggestions!

And don’t forget to RSVP on our official Facebook event to let all your friends know you’re going.

And, of course, don’t forget to register for (Re)Gen if you haven’t already! We’re welcoming Doctors, companions, and creators from all through the show’s run — including Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Michelle Gomez, and many more!

Are You a Creator? Join Us in Our Vendor Room and Artist Alley!

Do you make Doctor Who themed creations you’d like to sell? We’d love to have you in our Vendor Room or Artist Alley!

Our Vendor Room is a great place for people with large or heavy spreads — jewelry, costume makers, even store fronts for comic and geek shops! $450 gets you a 10×10 spot in a room that’s locked securely overnight, as well as two badges for the event.

Our Artist Alley is out in our atrium right in the flow of people, and is perfect for smaller indie creators. If you sell comics, prints, books, crafts, or the like, you can grab a 6×2.5 table for $150 — and that includes a badge. (Note that Artist Alley tables are not in a lockable area, so use your best judgment when leaving your table for the evening.

Both areas are situated on the way to the guests’ autograph tables, so you’ll be sure to get several good crowds moving through.

While we prefer that you have things that will appeal to Doctor Who fans available in your store, we don’t require you to have solely Who merch. So don’t worry if you couldn’t fill an entire table or stall with your Who stuff. As long as you have at least a few things that will appeal to fans, you’re more than welcome to apply!

>> Apply for Vendors Room here

>> Apply for Artist Alley here

And if you’ve got a shop of any sort, whether you’re vending or not, consider buying some advertising on our site or in our program book! It’s yet another way to catch the eyes of our attendees, since they’ll always have their program on them!


Not a vendor or artist? We’d still love to see you at (Re)Gen 4! Register now to get our best price, and to meet Doctor Who faves like Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Rachel Talalay, Michelle Gomez, Nicola Bryant, and many more! And be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to get all our big news as it drops!

Always the Doctor: A Sidecar for Regeneration

For many Whovians (us amongst them!), this Christmas is going to be a difficult time. We’ll be saying goodbye to Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor. On the one hand, this means welcoming Jodie Whittaker to the TARDIS for a whole new series of adventures. On the other, losing a Doctor is never easy. And for many of our ReGenerators (including the kids!), this may be their first time witnessing a regeneration.

At our first event, Tom Baker said in his interview that once you’re the Doctor, you always are. And while it’s hard to believe when the actor is no longer on your screens on a regular basis, it’s very true. To that end, we’ve come up with some happy reminders that even though it’s The End in one way, “Doctor” is a lifelong career.

 

William Hartnell

Sadly, Hartnell was already in poor health when he ended his run on Doctor Who. And his appearance in “The Three Doctors” was limited for this reason. But even with his health limiting his ability to go forward, his legacy lives on — he notably predicted the show’s long run when others doubted it.

 

Patrick Troughton

Troughton returned to the role of the Second Doctor three times: in “The Three Doctors,” “The Five Doctors,” and then with (Re)Gen guest Colin Baker for “The Two Doctors,” along with his cohort Frazer Hines as Jamie.

 

Jon Pertwee

 

Pertwee returned for “The Five Doctors” and “Dimensions in Time,” but he also took a step only one other Doctor has since: he appeared as his incarnation in a fan film! The fan-created Devious was created to bridge the gap between “The War Games” and “Spearhead from Space.” The BBC released a mini-edit of it, and some of Pertwee’s dialogue was repurposed for the Big Finish Eighth Doctor release “Zagreus.”

 

Tom Baker

Originally, Tom wasn’t too keen on returning to show (hence his conspicuous absence from “The Five Doctors” and the waxwork in its photo ops). But as time went on, he began coming back more and more. He’s appeared in multiple remakes and reassemblings of the ill-fated “Shada,” popped in for “Dimensions in time,” returned to the role via Big Finish, and even played a Doctor-y fictional version of himself in Baker’s End. And, of course, we can’t forget the Curator in “Day of the Doctor”!

 

Peter Davison

(Re)Gen 4 guest Peter Davison may have left the role in 1984, but he’s continued to be a Doctor Who ambassador. He reunited cast members old and new for his 50th anniversary piece The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot, hosted BBC America documentaries leading up to the 12th Doctor’s premiere, and was on hand when Peter Capaldi was announced in the role. Between that and his reappearance as the Fifth Doctor via “Time Crash” and Big Finish audios, he’s definitely taken on the role as a lifelong job.

 

Colin Baker

Colin’s appearance at (Re)Gen 4 will make his third at the con, and we’re not the only place he’s continuing to support Doctor Who. He also appeared in Five(ish) and continues with Big Finish. Not only that — he’s taken up the mantle of the resident Baker at Baker’s End… via regeneration, of course! He’s also appeared on Top Gear to race around their track against a rogues’ gallery of sci-fi monsters.

 

Sylvester McCoy

Sylv also shored up in Five(ish) and “Dimensions in Time,” but he’s done something that only one other person on our list has done. That’s right: appear as his Doctor in a fan film! The serial “Gene Genius” featured Sylv as the Seventh Doctor and Sophie Aldred as Ace. And, lest we forget, he also appeared in the parody Do You Have a License to Save This Planet? as the Foot Doctor. Who is not the Doctor in any way. Nope.

 

Paul McGann

Paul once called himself the George Lazenby of Doctor Who, and for a long time it seemed his involvement with the series was over. Fortunately, he continues to return in Big Finish audios. And he showed up twice during the 50th anniversary: once (albeit briefly) in Five(ish), and once for his regeneration in the surprise YouTube extra “Night of the Doctor.”

 

Christopher Eccleston

Sadly, we may never see Chris return to Doctor Who proper. But even with that proviso in place, he loves the fans and has been happy to chat with them when he meets them. And it’s great to know that he still appreciates the love from the fans, no matter what!

 

David Tennant

Of course, David returned for “Day of the Doctor,” as well as a brief stint in Five(ish) as an accomplice. In his time since then, he’s stepped in for a few more jaunts with Big Finish. Oh, and he’s made appearances in a few convention videos made by his father-in-law.

 

Matt Smith

It’s only been one era of Who since Matt left, and he’s been working busily away on series like The Crown. But given his recent convention appearances — and the fact that he had some choice (joking) words about the Twelfth Doctor spending time with “his” wife — it’s clear he still has a soft spot for the role. Plus, he left us with important words to remember when an actor leaves the role: he’s the Doctor, and he always will be.


We’ll be into the era of Thirteen when (Re)Gen 4 goes up in Baltimore this March — but we’re looking back and forward! We’ll be welcoming Fifth and Sixth Doctors Peter Davison and Colin Baker, Michelle Gomez and Rachel Talalay of the Twelfth Doctor’s era, and many more companions and creatives from all across the Whoniverse!

Calling All ReGenerators: Help a Fellow “Doctor Who” Fan!

We at Onezumi Events are, at our core, running events that help others grow, learn, and live. And when one of our own (because you’re all our family!) needs help, we step up where we can. And, best of all, so do the rest of our ReGenerators!

One of our attendees, Stacie, has had to have her 2018 pass refunded due to the cost (both financial and physical) of chemo. Our con chair is paying for her ticket to the event herself — and should she not be able to make it, we will be sending her a care package from the con.

Stacie has made a statement concerning the event and others’ desire to help her:

Again I don’t know how I’ll ever repay you! Ive prayed for a miracle and I think I found it. You are amazing and your heart and the heart of all the others getting involved is just so overwhelming.
Blessings on you and everyone!
-Stacie
