Forbidden Planet, in conjunction with Titan Merchandise and BBC Studios, are to host the return of the Doctor Who stand at MCM London Comic Con next weekend.
MCM offers an epic three-day celebration of all things pop culture at London’s ExCel, one of the biggest pop culture shows of the year with celebrity guests, panels, gaming and more.
Four former Doctor Who stars are among the many guests lined up for the event – Peter Davison (the Fifth Doctor), Colin Baker (Sixth), Sylvester McCoy (Seventh) and Paul McGann (Eighth), whose travels in the TARDIS have continued in audio adventures from Big Finish, and comics, too.
Other Doctor Who guests join actors, comic writers such as Cavan Scott, artists such as Mark Ellerby, Gary Erskine, Laura Howell, Nigel Parkinson, and Rachael Smith, and more, behind the scenes creatives such as Steven Moffat at the three-day event.
The Doctor Who stand will offer photo opportunities, costumes never seen in person before, and 15 exclusive MCM convention items from the Doctor Who 60th Anniversary Collection, sold exclusively through Forbidden Planet.
Each Doctor will be represented with one exclusive item from the collection, so this is your chance to get hold of limited numbered items that otherwise wouldn’t be available for up to 12 months. Make sure to head to the Doctor Who stand each day at MCM London for your chance to get exclusive items.
