2015 is shaping up to be an excellent year for Australian Whovians, with fan favourite Doctor Who actors Matt Smith (the Eleventh Doctor), Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) and Alex Kingston (River Song) set to appear at The Hub Productions’ event Whoniverse this May, with venues to be announced soon in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide.
Smith and Gillan delighted audiences across the world in their roles as the Eleventh Doctor and his loveable companion, Amy Pond, for three seasons from 2010. Kingston initially appeared in the Season Four (2008) episodes of Doctor Who, Silence in the Library and The Forest of the Dead, before reprising her role alongside Smith and Gillan throughout the next three seasons.
The Hub Productions’ Whoniverse shows will be bigger on the inside with Smith, Gillan and Kingston appearing on stage to share stories and participate in Q&As with fans. Each show will also feature autograph and professional photograph opportunities; plus auctions, raffles, trivia and rare collectibles.
The five capital cities will each host a leg of the national tour, which will be the first time a modern-era Doctor has appeared at a convention in Australia.
The dates are:
Sydney – Saturday May 9th
Brisbane – Sunday May 10th
Perth – Wednesday May 13th
