COMMUNITY: Meeting Some Awesome(Con) Cosplayers!

We took our show on the road twice this month to meet fans, spread the word about both (Re)Gen and PotterVerse, and check out some of what our neighboring cons have to offer. As always, we saw old friends and new faces showing off their amazing cosplay, and we wanted to recognize a few of the fabulous Time Lords and Ladies, companions, and adventurers who came by our table!

If you see a photo of yourself, feel free to grab it!

Whether you saw us at another con or are just now discovering us, be sure to register for our event! We’ll be announcing more guests soon!

The Davros Variety Hour: The Dark Lord of the Daleks Returns

Who in their right mind would give Davros – the creator of the Daleks, the mad genius who attempted to wipe out countless species across the universe – an hour of stage time at an event and then ask him to sing and dance?

That’d be us.

Last year at (Re)Generation Who 2, the villainous mastermind took control of Main Events on Saturday night. And with his captive audience in the palm of his hand, he presented an evening of dance, music, stand-up, and sketch comedy. Which, admittedly, is probably a lot more fun than what you’d normally expect from Davros.

The Davros Variety Hour was the brainchild of actor Terry Molloy (Doctor Who’s Davros from 1984-1988 and with Big Finish) and musician/comedienne Cat Smith, something fun to entertain the crowd in the absence of the Saturday night masquerade. It was an evening of ukulele music, bellydancing monsters, and cosplay antics from Team Shenanigans, culminating in an epic sing-a-long.

This year, with our first masquerade ever on Saturday, Terry moved his act to Friday night in Main Programming… and the show was bigger, better, and evil-er than ever!

Of course, the ukulele stylings of Dave Ross and the Dalettes opened things out, as well as leading the audience in a rousing rendition of “My Doctor Sylveste” (a slightly tweaked version of Sylvester McCoy’s old road show act). Antipode brought on the bellydancing, Cat Smith and Hannah Harkness brought the laughs, and Team Shenanigans was on hand to give their version of  the events of this year’s Oscars.

Things didn’t end there, though — this year, the stakes were higher as the Twelfth Doctor himself (… okay, Andy Hicks doing a really good Twelfth Doctor) challenged Davros to an Epic Rap Battle. Sound unmissable? Don’t worry, you can see it right here!

And of course, things ended with “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,” with a little help from our amazing audience.

Still want more? Here’s a backstage video taken during rehearsal!

Paul Magrs teams up with Moriarty in “Travel Folktales for Kids”

2017 guest Paul Magrs, onstage with fellow guests Katy Manning and Panda.

If you and your family are dreaming of a summer getaway, but can’t quite manage it (or are stuck in yet more beastly weather), let Paul Magrs help you get away from it all. His new podcast miniseries, Travel Folktales for Kids, has just begun its run on the Guardian website.

The series will feature five new rendition of classic folktales, rewritten by Magrs and read by Andrew Scott — known to many as the mad Moriarty in BBC’s Sherlock. The first installment takes us to Cornwall, where we hear the classic story of Jack the Giant Killer.

England-Saint-Michaels-Mount-1900-1[1]

Set in St. Michael’s Mount, the origin of the legend of the giant Cormoran, the story presents a Magrs-ian twist on the popular legend that’s fun for kids and parents to listen to together. Future installments will transport listeners to Croatia, Mallorca, Tuscany, and the Algarve. The series is supported by Airbnb, and is free to listen to regardless of region.

Listen to the first installment here!

And be sure to stay tuned for future installments and share them with the family!
