Please remember all announced guests appear subject to work commitments. Guests Jacqueline King Jacqueline King Jacqueline King who, of course played Donna Noble’s mother Sylvia from 2006 to 2010. We do not usually announce guests for Whooverville until they are confirmed, (subject to work commitments), however when we invited Jacqueline to this year’s convention, she was good enough to say that she would very much like to join us for the day, but that she is so busy, that she is not able to give a firm ‘yes’ at this point. So, with Jacqueline’s agreement we are announcing her as invited to Whooverville, and hoping to be there. We will make a further announcement as soon as we can.
Philip Hinchcliffe Phillip HinchcliffePhilip Hinchcliffe is one of the very best regarded producers that Doctor Who was ever lucky enough to have, presiding over what many regard as a classic period of the show, during the first half of the Fourth Doctor era. Philip formed a tremendous partnership with script editor Robert Holmes, which saw the creation of many fan-favourite stories, including Genesis of the Daleks, Pyramids of Mars and The Talons of Weng-Chiang.
After leaving Who, Philip went on to a long and successful career in TV and film, including producing a number of very highly regarded productions.
Philip was a guest of the Whoovers for a splendid night in 2014, but this will be his first appearance at Whooverville. Our thanks go to Philip for accepting our invitation.
Sophie Aldred Sophie AldredSophie Aldred is an old friend of our group and our convention, having last visited us in 2010, when she was a guest at Whooverville 2.
Sophie has family links with Derbyshire, which has always led us to think of her as very much one of our own. Of course, she is best known for playing the Seventh Doctor’s companion Ace, in many ways the template for many of the companions that were to follow in 21st Century Doctor Who, but we also look forward to asking her about her current online audio series Strangeness in Space, in which she stars with TV’s Trev and Simon.
Our thanks go to Sophie for agreeing to return to Whooverville.
