The Convention brings the makers of the Doctor Who together for a full day, in-depth event designed to reveal the inner workings of the series.

Everyone from the Production Designer Michael Pickwoad, responsible for Doctor Who’s eye-popping visuals to Casting Director Andy Pryor revealing what it takes to find a Doctor, will be gathering in one place to celebrate the creativity (and elbow grease!) that goes into the series.
