Doctor Who Con Kasterborous Last Weekend

The Huntsville, Alabama-based Con Kasterborous was held this past weekend, with great fun had by fans of all ages. Guest of honor Sylvester McCoy – known to Doctor Who fans as the Seventh Doctor – delighted the crowd assembled for his hour-long panel by playing the spoons, an act well-known to his fans, as he performs at nearly every event he attends. McCoy took the proffered spoons from an eager fan and proceeded to play while walking about the panel hall, knocking the spoons against laughing fans and one particularly well-constructed fez. “Oh, there’s a good drum,” the Scottish actor commented. (The video can be found here).

Next year’s Con Kasterborous special guests have already been announced: Eighth Doctor Paul McGann and Eric Roberts! The con will be held July 18-19, 2015. Pre-registration starts soon.
