The seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy will be our headline guest at #TimeEddyIII. The Scottish actor appeared as the TimeLord for three years in the classic series as well as in the 1996 Doctor Who movie. He has reprised the role in recent years for the Big Finish audios. He also featured in the 30th and 50th anniversary specials Dimensions in Time, and the Five(ish) Doctors. Beyond Doctor Who, Sylvester has an extensive repertoire as a stage and TV actor but he has developed a new cult following in recent years having starred as Radagast in The Hobbit.
Appearing alongside Sylvester will be Doctor Who Movie star Eric Roberts. He played the Master in the 1996 classic but is equally well know for starring roles in Batman: The Dark Knight, Runaway Train, King of the Gypsies and Star 80, and hundreds of other movie and TV appearances.
The Doctor never gets very far without his companions so we are delighted that Katy Manning AKA Jo Grant will be at Time Eddy III. Katy appeared alongside Jon Pertwee in the 70s doing battle with the Daleks, Ice Warriors and of course The Master. More recently she h played the title character in the Iris Wildthyme audios whilst also starring alongside Tom Baker in Baker’s End.
Science fiction would be nothing without a basis in science fact and we plan to explore this angle at TEIII with the help of TV space historian Amy Shira Teitel. You can catch Amy on the Science Channel, American Heroes Channel, Syfy, and the Travel Channel.
Sylvester who is appearing courtesy of Galactic Productions, LLC, Katy and Eric will be participating in Q&A sessions, signings autographs and posing for pictures during all three days of #TimeEddy III. He will also be in attendance at our Thursday night event A Night Among The Stars featuring Amy Shira Teitel at the Hutchinson Cosmosphere. Tickets for Time Eddy III are on sale now with big discounts for early registration.
