Lords of Time – Convention report

Two days ago, Revenge of the Film Nerds were guests of Culture Shock Events at the Lords of Time convention in Sydney.   The con featured seven guests most famous for their contributions to Doctor Who, which this year celebrates its 50th year since it first hit our television screens.

First up, the event features Janet Fielding, whom played Tegan Jovanka, companion to the 5th Doctor.   It also featured John Leeson, the voice of K-9, and Nicholas Briggs, who is the modern voice of both Daleks and Cybermen, as well as various other aliens. Most fans were there, however, to meet four Doctors.   Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, and Paul McGann were all in attendance.   Catch the video of our interview with them below;

Lords of Time – April 7th 2013

Time Lords have the rule of both space and time, but Homo sapiens do not.   Our time is running out to get tickets to the latest Culture Shock Event….

That’s right, FOUR DOCTORS!!   Five through Eight inclusive.   To break it down even further, that means Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann.   That is not all, however…  Janet Fielding, whom played companion Janet Fielding alongside Davsion, will also be in attendance, as well as John Leeson, voice of K9.   Unfortunately, Frazer Hines has had to pull out, which is a real shame as he was quite the entertaining gentleman at last year’s Heroes and Villains convention.

To book your tickets, visit the Culture Shock Events website.   We here at Revenge of the Film Nerds look forward to catching up with you all.

While you are at it, don’t forget about our competition which we are currently running, thanks to our friends at CSE!!

Culture Shock Events always puts on a great show for fans.   Whilst their events are slightly more price-y than your regular Supanova or Armageddon, the events have a much tighter focus and a more intimate meeting with the stars of our favourite shows.   If price is an issue for you though, for the events I advertise here, there is a Christmas sale.   Non-members can get in for the price of members!!   If you wish to attend either of the events advertised below, enter the bookings section of the Culture Shock Events website, and buy a member pass to the event.   The code to enter in the comments section upon booking is #cse-Xmas.   This sale will be available until December 24th, so get in before you miss out.

So, what are these two amazing events being held??   Read on…..
