Peter Davison will be at GenCon
Who North America's special guest!
We went to the Who North America open house on Saturday where we met up with fellow geek blogger Tony, from Geeking in Indiana. Had a fun time chatting with him, but none of us were expecting what came next…
For months the awesome folks over at Who North America have been hinting that they were working on getting a very special guest this year for GenCon, and we waited patiently until they could tell us who it would be. Then as we were chatting with Tom, who works at WhoNA, he was able to finally reveal that the contracts were recently signed, and Who North America’s special guest for GenCon will be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison!
Last year Who North America had Nicholas Briggs at their booth, voice of the Daleks. That was pretty awesome, but this is a whole other level for me. I grew up watching Doctor Who on PBS, so Davison was my second Doctor. Which means I will either geek out, or flake. We will see. Actually, what I meant to say was, I’m a professional and, you know, I’ll be all cool and collected…and stuff?
We don’t have all the details yet, as this is still new, but we’re hoping to find out more soon. Will he also be an GenCon Media Guest of Honor? We’re not sure. We do know that he will be at the WhoNA warehouse for one of the nights, but the final info hasn’t been announced yet. We will keep you posted!
