We are thrilled to announce that William Russell will be the guest of honor at Time Eddy III in Wichita, KS. He appeared alongside William Hartnell (The Doctor) in the first ever episode of the show. He went on to appear in over 70 episodes together before he left the series and was replaced as the male companion by Time Eddy I guest Peter Purves.
As an original cast member, Russell was onscreen for the first appearance of the TARDIS. He was also the first companion to visit Skaro and face the Daleks, along with the late Jacqueline Hill. This is a rare opportunity for fans in the U.S. to meet him and we are honored to be hosting them. Sadly Carole Ann Ford will now be unable to attend.
