Three of the doctor’s companions - Peri, Polly and Ace - actresses Nicola Bryant, Anneke Wills and Sophie Aldred will be there.

Terry Molloy, also known as Davros, and John Leeson - the voice of K9 - will be coming too.

Writer Paul Cornell will be talking about his working and BAFTA award-winning special effects designer Mike Tucker is doing a presentation on Doctor Who’s effects.

Ailsa Berk, who teaches movement to the actors playing the show’s monsters, will be leading an alien-movement workshop.
