Happy Who-Loween! New branding, new guest, and new contest!

Is everyone having a super spooky Halloween? Stay safe today, whether you’re out partying, trick-or-treating, or staying in to watch BBC America’s Doctor Who marathon! They’re airing some of the series’s spookiest episodes, so be sure to tune in.

Oh, and if you’ve got any Who-ish costumes or decor tonight, show us! From now until Friday night, we’re asking for photos of your family’s Who-inspired Halloween costumes, pumpkins, snacks, decorations, or what have you. We’ll run our favorites in next week’s blog post!

If you want to share, you can hop over to our Facebook group or tag @ReGenerationWho on Twitter. We can’t wait to see what you’ve made!

But we’re not going to leave you without one last treat!

We’re very happy to announce a returning guest: Davros himself, Terry Molloy!

Terry has appeared at (Re)Gen since the beginning, bringing us everything from Classic era talk to workshops for aspiring actors to his, erm, “Dave Ross” Variety Hour. We can’t wait to welcome him back to Baltimore for more fun and entertainment… and, of course, he’ll be bringing along his cohort Monty to talk about their new book!

Stay tuned in the coming weeks: we have more guests to announce and more fun surprises to share! Don’t miss out — register now and get your ticket to the mid-Atlantic’s premiere Doctor Who party!


A Journey to Devil’s End

Fans of Classic Who will remember the Third Doctor episode The Dæmons, which featured the Time Lord and his old foe the Master in a small town called Devil’s End. But did you know you can actually visit Devil’s End? It exists — under another name, of course — and they’re very welcoming to Doctor Who fans who journey there.

It’s not actually called “Devil’s End,” of course, but Aldbourne. The village in Wiltshire has a population of less than 2,000, and is a beautiful place to visit in its own right. There are two pubs, one with a friendly old dog named Kali who keeps an eye on visitors. The same pub has a familiar-looking customer out front.

Press the button, and you’ll hear an impressive tirade about the Daleks’ plan to conquer Aldbourne. Don’t worry, though, it won’t actually do anything. It is, however, a functioning rubbish bin with a plate for stubbing out cigarettes on top.

Go farther into the village and you’ll see many more spots of note from the story. But the most notable is likely the other pub — the Blue Boar, renamed in the story as the Cloven Hoof.

And yes, that sign is really outside (albeit off to the side) in case you want a photo op!

The interior of the Blue Boar is a cozy place for food and drinks. Go into the back, and you’ll see some flyers from the early days of Doctor Who fandom. Unsurprisingly, it became a gathering spot for fans, and occasionally for the actors themselves!

If you’d like to learn more about the village, be sure to visit The Aldbourne Net, or look up The Aldbourne Archive on Facebook for photos of the village’s history!

Want to learn more about the history of Doctor Who and cool sightseeing locations? Our guests and panelists have you covered! Register now to join us this March and meet Who faves Peter Davison, Michelle Gomez, and many more to be announced soon!


Baker’s End Continues… And Not a Moment Too Soon!

The Bafflegab audio series Baker’s End features a number of (Re)Gen family: penned by Paul Magrs and starring Tom Baker and Katy Manning, the fantastical three-episode story saw Tom “reborn” as the King of Cats, solving mysteries around the tiny town of Happenstance.

But regeneration comes for us all in the end, and the new face of the show will see a very different Baker taking the stage — Old Sixie himself and one of (Re)Gen’s very first guests, Colin Baker!

The fourth episode of the ongoing series sees Colin Baker as himself (well… a version of himself) taking up the mantle of the lord of Baker’s End. Colin teams up with companion Susie (played by Katy Manning) to uncover the source of a mysterious virus making its way through Happenstance. And it’s not just the pox; the town is also plagued with giant rats! Will the magnificent King of Cats be back on his feet in time to save the day?

You can find out this Friday when The Happenstance Pox goes live. Preorder now from Bafflegab and you’ll be among the first to hear the new episode!


WRITER SPOTLIGHT: Grab the Latest from (Re)Gen Guests!

If you’ve loved seeing our guests at (Re)Gens past, why not continue to support them throughout the year? Many of our fans’ faves have big books coming out soon. Here’s a quick run-down of a few and where you can get them!


Doctor Who: The Missy Chronicles

If you’ve not gotten your fill of Michelle Gomez’s Missy, never fear: a new collection of short stories is on its way! (Re)Gen 3 guest Paul Magrs pens a story, alongside James Goss, Jacqueline Raynor, Cavan Scott, and many others! Preorder your copy now for release in February 2018!


Doctor Who: Tales of Terror

Speaking of Paul, he also shows up in this spooky collection, available just in time for Halloween! Mike Tucker, Scott Handcock, and more also throw in on the twelve creepy stories, each starring a different incarnation of the Doctor. Buy your copy now!



A spooky new release from George Mann, this book combines detective fiction with the occult. The UK printing appears to already be sold out — but good news, Americans! You can still grab yours (with a different cover design) from Amazon.com. Pick up your copy now!


Seasons of War: Gallifrey

Not by our guests… but featuring two of (Re)Gen’s own staff! A new addition to the charity anthology series Seasons of War, this stand-alone book features four new characters connected (and disconnected) by the Time War. WhatCulture and Black Archive contributor Paul Driscoll teams up with (Re)Gen social media director Kara Dennison to pen the work, with cover art by our own graphic designer Ginger Hoesly. Visit the Seasons of War Facebook page to preorder!


Montmorency Montgomery Bear: The Bear with the Ginormous Heart

We’d be remiss if we didn’t remind our fans about Terry, Paul, and Monty’s new picture book! (And we’ll admit a tiny bit of pride, as Terry and Paul met at ReGen 3, so that makes us — godparent to the book, perhaps?) The book is now on sale, so order your copy!


We’ll be announcing writer and creative guests before long! Are there some favorites you’d like to see return? Any writers, directors, or others you’d like to see welcomed to the (Re)Gen family? Use our suggestion form to let us know! Many of our guests were invited because of suggestions from fans like you.

And don’t forget to register and reserve your room ASAP so you’re assured a spot at Baltimore’s favorite Doctor Who party!


GUEST NEWS: Pearl Mackie to Miss (Re)Gen, Appear at the West End

We at Onezumi Events always have mixed feelings when a guest has to step down. On the one hand, we’re obviously quite disappointed we won’t get to welcome them to Baltimore with our usual (Re)Gen hospitality, and we know how disappointed our attendees will be. On the other, the cancellations are often for a career move that’s going to be good news for the actor — which we, of course, always support.

Those of you following actor news probably noticed already that Pearl Mackie is signed on to appear in Harold Pinter’s The Birthday Party during (Re)Gen’s 2018 dates. Despite working with her agents to clear some free time during the run, we’re sad to say that the conflict cannot be gotten around, and thus Pearl will not be appearing for year 4.

Refunds will be offered for any pre-purchased autographs/photo-ops, and we hope to be announcing more guests in future.

In the meantime, we’re hoping to be able to tell you more about Pearl’s upcoming appearance as it approaches! She’ll be appearing alongside fellow Doctor Who alums Zoe Wanamaker and Toby Jones, as well as Episodes star Stephen Mangan, at the Harold Pinter Theater (appropriately enough).  For now, check out this BBC interview where she talks about the play, her future career plans, and her opinions of Doctor Who going forward.


Love (Re)Gen? Join Our Street Team!

Going to a con (besides ReGen) this year? Want to help spread the word about our big Doctor Who party? Join our street team!

A good portion of our attendance comes from word of mouth — fans like you telling other fans about what a great time you had. But you don’t have to go out and paper the town to help us (you totally can, but you don’t have to). If you’re going to a convention this year before ReGen, especially (but not only) if it’s in the mid-Atlantic area, let us know and we’ll mail you a box of flyers! Drop them on the flyer/giveaway table

Just send an email to contact @ regenerationwho . com with your mailing address to get started. And if you take a photo of yourself putting out the flyers, we might share it on our social media!


Photo and Autograph Preorders Are Live!

Ready to start your (Re)Gen planning? Of course you are! It’s never too soon!

One of the best ways to plan in advance is to pay early for autographs and photo ops. No shuffling around for cash at the ATM (which — as we all know — will end up empty at some point), and no worrying you won’t get there in time. Paying in advance means you will get your chance to get an autograph from or photo with Peter Davison, Michelle Gomez, or Pearl Mackie!

Add autographs and photo ops on our registration page — if you’ve already registered, you can log in and add them on! Prices are listed for all three guests so far.

More prices will be added as we announce more guests, as well as prices for group photo shoots once groups have been established.



There’s only one person who could eclipse an eclipse… and she’s here! After a last-minute cancellation to appear on the show this year, Michelle Gomez is signed back on for (Re)Gen 4! We can’t wait to welcome Missy and Bill to the event together for an amazing Series 10 team-up like no other!

Michelle will be joining Peter Davison, Pearl Mackie, and other soon-to-be-announced guests for our fourth year in March 2018. Register now and be ready for all the guests, panels, and special events!


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!
