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!

Happy Birthday, Doctor Who! A Few 54th Anniversary Celebrations

As (Re)Gen is based in the US, several of our team (and most of our attendees) were a bit preoccupied with, er, “Christmas rehearsal” yesterday. While November 23 marked Thanksgiving this year, it was also the 54th anniversary of Doctor Who! There’s nothing wrong with a belated celebration… so here are a few of our favorite dedications, writings, and gifts from guests past and future:

 

Tom Baker’s Doctor Who Day Video

The self-proclaimed “happiest Doctor” sends the fans a cheerful message. Attendees of our first year will remember that Tom tuned in via Skype to answer attendee questions. We’re always happy to see his smiling face!

 

Oh, Doctor Who – Paul Magrs

Writer and artist Paul Magrs looks back on his time with the show, and how it’s changed from childhood to adulthood. Like many of us, his life has changed hugely because of this little sci-fi series. And he looks backs on discussions with Tom Baker, Katy Manning, and many others who have been a part of that journey.

 

Peri’s Birthday Tweet – Nicola Bryant

One of our first ever guests, Nicola gives thanks from our side of the pond for Who and the lovely people surrounding it. The feeling is mutual!

 

A Double Birthday! – Michelle Gomez

We’re wondering how the Doctor would feel to know that his greatest frenemy shares a birthday with his big show. Regardless, November 23 was a day of many celebrations for Michelle Gomez, being her birthday as well! Happy birthday, Michelle!

 

And, of course, it bears mentioning that November 23 is canonically the birthday of Clara Oswald — whose actress, Jenna Coleman, sadly couldn’t join us this year due to queenly duties on the Victoria set. We hope we’ll be able to welcome her in future years.

We’d love to hear how you celebrated your Doctor Who Day! Be sure to hit us up on our official Twitter or Facebook to get chatting.


Want to meet some of these awesome people and chat with fellow fans? Come to (Re)Generation 4 next March in Baltimore! We’ll be hosting Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Michelle Gomez, and many more to be announced. Register now to get the best prices for you and your family!
