Plenty to enjoy at the “Who’s At The Playhouse” event

Who's At The Playhouse - Epsom Playhouse - Sunday 12th February 2023

Sylvester McCoy will now be attending the upcoming Who’s At The Playhouse event at Epsom Playhouse on Sunday 12th February – and there’s plenty more lined up to enjoy, too.

Peter Davison, the Fifth Doctor, and Colin Baker, the Sixth Doctor, also lead the event’s line-up of Doctor Who stars appearing on stage, in a day-long diary of exclusive on stage interviews, celebrity autograph panels, photograph sessions, quizzes, cosplay competitions, merchandise and much more – plus, will your “Letter to the Doctor” be read on stage by the Doctor himself?

Also appearing are a wealth of guests celebrating the programme’s sixtieth anniversary, including Carole Ann Ford, the Doctor’s grand daughter, Peter Purves, who played the First Doctor’s companion Steven Taylor, Katy Manning, who played Jo Grant, Nicola Bryant, who travelled with the Fifth and Sixth Doctors, and John Leeson, the voice of the Doctor’s robot companion K9.

Joining them will be actors Colin Spaull (Revelation of the Daleks, Rise of the Cybermen), Paul Lavers (The Androids of Tara), and monster actor extraordinaire Jon Davey, with more star names to be added to the guest list.

“We’ve just heard from his agent that he’d made a mistake when he said he’d made a mistake with the dates, so we will now be able to welcome three Doctors and 17 companion actors!” informed organisers.

Tickets include the chance to take part in an exclusive “Letters to the Doctor” show. What does Doctor Who mean to you? What would you say to the stars of the series, a favourite character, or the programme itself – a personal memory of when you first watched? A love letter to the show? Or something else?

Please email your Letters to the Doctor (in no more than 300 words) to and the actors will read out their favourites. Plus print out your letter, and get it signed afterwards!

Plus our stars will be sharing their Doctor Who anecdotes in a “Would I Lie To Who?” quiz… but are they all true? Can they be believed? Find out whose stories are fact or fake and discover the biggest fibber in the Whoniverse!
