Doctor Who: Con Kasterborous Convention Kicks Off This Weekend

Doctor Who convention Con Kasterborous is a fairly new convention, operating out of Huntsville, Alabama, but it’s getting bigger, with between 1,500 and 2,000 people expected to attend this weekend.

That may be due to the fact that Sylvester McCoy, the Seventh Doctor himself, will be in attendance at the con, which is held this Saturday and Sunday, June 28-29. Also in attendance is Andrew Cartmel, script editor for Doctor Who during McCoy’s time on the show, Kelly Yates, an illustrator for Doctor Who books, and Gareth David-Lloyd, famous for his portrayal of Ianto Jones in Torchwood and Doctor Who.

Preregistration has now closed for Con Kasterborous. Are you going? Do you know someone who is? Leave us a comment and tell us how the con went!

Sylvester McCoy played the Seventh Doctor from 1987 to 1989. He can be seen in the upcoming film The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies. He was also in the previous two films, An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug. He was also seen in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot.
