GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT: Pearl Mackie comes to ReGen 2018!

We are thrilled and excited to announce that Bill Potts herself, Pearl Mackie, will be joining us at (Re)Generation Who 4! The Series 10 companion will be making one final appearance in the Christmas special Twice Upon a Time, and then will be on her way to hang out with us in Baltimore in the spring! Please join us this March in offering Pearl some American Whovian hospitality as a new member of the (Re)Gen family!

Presales for photos and autographs will be up in the next handful of days, as will information on our Guest page. In the meantime, be sure to register now for a spot at our Doctor Who party!

And be sure to keep an eye on the blog for more guest announcements in the near future!


Shake It up with Dominic Glynn’s “Happiness Patrol” Remixes!

If you were at (Re)Gen 2, you remember composer Dominic Glynn’s awesome Saturday night concert! For those who missed it, just know that Glynn is behind some of the iconic music from 80s-era Doctor Who. Nowadays, his tunes can be heard all over television, but he also takes time to re-release and remix some of his Who classics. His next set, The Happiness Patrol Remixes, comes out next month!

The Happiness Patrol is iconic for its political commentary, candy-like monster, and (of course) the pink TARDIS. The original soundtrack, a mix of electronics and blues music, featured Adam “Tidy” Burney on harmonica. That might not sound like the kind of thing you’d be getting down to in a nightclub, but it will be when Glynn is through with it!

The Happiness Patrol Remixes takes elements of the original soundtrack and mashes them up with modern electronica to create “the music the coolest Timelords would be shaking their thing to…” So if you’re looking for something to dance to and want to show love for your favorite show (and the creatives behind it), grab a copy!

Preorders open August 28, with a release date of September 18. Albums will be digital only, available from iTunes/Apple Music, Amazon, Juno Records and all digital music retailers. Keep an eye out on dominic-glynn.com, and check out more of his tunes on SoundCloud!


Monty (and Terry) Release New Book!

Regular (Re)Gen attendees are familiar with the sight of actor Terry Molloy, be it in his capacity as a Classic Doctor Who actor, a teacher, or a variety show host. And everyone knows his faithful companion Monty Bear, too, and the story of how he’s been at Terry’s side all through his life.

That story is soon to be in print, courtesy of FBS PublishingMontmorency Montgomery Bear: The Bear with the Ginormous Heart.

The book features beautiful illustrations by another ReGen family member: Paul Magrs. Paul is, of course, an amazing writer in his own right. But attendees of ReGen 3 may remember his beautiful watercolors painted throughout the weekend. Paul and Terry have teamed up to make a book children and adults will both love — especially if they’re already fans of the globetrotting bear and his faithful actor companion.

Preorders are now open on the FBS website. And while you’re there, be sure to pick up a copy of Sixth Sense, a compilation of Colin Baker’s weekly columns from the Bucks Free Press!


Artist Alley and Vendor Applications Opening Soon!

Got some sweet Whovian creations you’re looking to sell? Our Artist Alley and Vendor applications will be opening this weekend!

For those who’ve never exhibited at our event before, a few quick notes:

First off, applying for a space isn’t a land grab. You don’t have to be first in to ensure a space. We look over all applicants to make sure we have a good variety of creators and vendors without too much overlap. Of course we definitely want vendors who are going to sell the “usual” so our attendees can find it… but if you’re a dealer of unique and hard-to-find items, we absolutely want to hear from you.

And a few specifics:

Vendors: Spaces are $450 each (which includes two badges) in a space that is locked and secured every night. This is a good spot for comic book stores, retailers, and creators with bigger or more expensive merchandise. Read our FAQ and Terms and Conditions here.

Artist Alley: Spaces are $150 each (which includes one badge). These tables are in an open area, so you will be asked to secure your own belongings after the alley closes each night. This is a great spot for self-employed creators who don’t have as much big stock to secure. Read our FAQ and Terms and Conditions here.

We’ll be sharing links to the forms as soon as they go up!


Remembering Deborah Watling (2 January 1948 – 21 July 2017)

This is the hardest thing I have ever had to write.

What you probably know already is that Deborah Watling played Patrick Troughton’s Companion, Victoria Waterfield from 1967-1968. She passed away today.

What you may not know if you haven’t met her is that she was one of the most kind and sweet people you could ever meet. The best thing about Deborah is that she was so tiny and so sweet but she could totally zing you if you needed to be scolded. She was our (Re)Generation Who Mom. She wasn’t just a person that got hired for a con – she was FAMILY. She was the second person we ever hired to appear at (Re)Generation Who 1. She actually liked to fly into the con the Wednesday before and stay until a day or so after the event, so Harknell and I spent a lot of time with her.

I took this photo of Harknell and her after (Re)Generation Who 1. I have never been good at getting photos with anyone since I’m so busy being behind the camera:

Right after we announced (Re)Gen 1, Harknell’s Mom passed away. It made that first year even harder. We had some minor email reply delays because of this. Some folks would just scream at us totally not understanding that we couldn’t reply to emails as fast as usual because of this tragedy. But we pulled it together and made magic as always.

Deborah came into the con first – on her Wednesday early arrival day. We had several meals and drinks with her. I recall one amazing one where she drank Harknell – a man 2x her size at least – under the table, daintily hopped off of her seat, kissed him on the cheek, said “Naughty, Naughty! Good night, then!” and walked off to her room. It was HILARIOUS and SO Deborah. She knew about the loss of his Mom.

We worked with Deborah twice. The second time she flew in I recall a moment when Harknell said to her, “If you were my Mom I would have been very happy.”

Deborah started crying, gave him a hug and told him that she would have loved to be his Mom and hugged him and then he started crying. Everyone was crying. We always made sure to come to the con early and stay late to be there with Deborah. Anything she needed – we made sure she got. Family.

That’s really the magic of cons. You can know someone for a very short time and feel a deep connection to them. She was supposed to return to the con this year. Harknell, myself, and the staff are completely heartbroken. We can only imagine how her family and friends must be feeling today. Our condolences to everyone who knew her. It takes a truly beautiful soul to inspire so much love throughout the entire globe.

I guess you can make magic like this and still be reduced to crying in your car in a strip mall in front of a Starbucks.

She would want us to continue.

I can hear her voice now. “Naughty, naughty! Oni! What ARE you on about now?”

And that’s when I finally was able to get out of my car and order my coffee.

Oni Hartstein, (Re)Generation Who Founder and Showrunner
