An Unearthly Child vs. The Dalek Invasion of Earth
Actor and screenwriter of 50th anniversary docudrama An Adventure in Space and Time, Mark Gatiss, will be celebrated at France’s fifth annual Comic Con in July.
Gatiss – also writer of six Doctor Who adventures – will appear for a panel session and to sign autographs. There will also be a screening of clips from some of Mark’s episodes, as well as his occasional performances in the series - including Gantok in The Wedding of River Song and Professor Lazarus from The Lazarus Experiment (pictured above).
The First Doctor’s TARDIS recreated for An Adventure in Space and Time will be displayed at the event for the duration of the four days. This will be the first time the console has gone on display to the public, before it travels to the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff for the rest of the Summer. The Stamp Centre will be running a shop for a chance to buy the Doctor Who stamp range.
The one-off 90 minute drama An Adventure in Space and Time tells the story of the genesis of Doctor Who and the many personalities involved. Starring Brian Cox (The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Identity), Jessica Raine (Call the Midwife) and David Bradley (Game of Thrones, Harry Potter), the special will be transmitted later in 2013.
Comic Con Paris runs from 4-7 July at the Paris-Nord Villepointe Exhibition Centre.Tickets are available now.

With five Doctors complete, I can do this homage to the 20th Anniversary special, The Five Doctors!
Sadly Tom Baker didn’t come back for the special, so in homage, here he is in limbo! (and yes, neither did Hartnell since he’d passed away by this time, but I’d like to think it’s him in spirit)
thx for the tip superpsyguy!
Doctor Who: The Survivors
So, there’s been a reference to each Doctor’s era in chronological order since The Rings of Akhaten. If this holds true, there should be a mention of Six’s in Nightmare in Silver, and Seven’s in the finale…
First Doctor and hats.
Just purchased this little gem!
Every Doctor Who story: 001 - An Unearthly Child (1963)
“If you could touch the alien sand and hear the cry of strange birds and watch them wheel in another sky, would that satisfy you?”
A cache of never-before-seen Doctor Who scripts, including one for a serial that was replaced by the first Daleks story, have been unearthed in Herne Bay in Kent.
They were discovered by local prop maker Jason Onion, who found them while researching the town’s links with the BBC sci-fi drama.
The scripts were nestled in a box of papers belonging to the late writer and TARDIS creator Anthony Coburn, who used to live in Herne Bay.
Onion said that he wasn’t initially aware of the significance of his find and believed the scripts to be copies of existing Doctor Who screenplays.
“With the consent of Anthony’s wife, Joan Coburn-Moon, and other family members, the family lent me a box of his work and I saw the scripts, but put them to one side,” he told thisiskent.co.uk. “When I scanned the cover later I realised it didn’t have the right title for the first episode.
“I had a look and as soon as I saw the first few pages I knew it was not the episode that had been televised. I just sat there, and stared and stared. I wanted to cover them with glass. They are unbelievably precious, and I had them in my hand.”
The collection includes two versions of Doctor Who’s very first episode, An Unearthly Child, an alternative second episode and another three scripts including a story about the Masters of Luxor, which was replaced by 1963’s The Daleks.
The Tenth Planet sees both the introduction of the menacing, dead-eyed Cybermen, and the departure of the First Doctor, William Hartnell. The final episode has been missing from the BBC Archives since the mid-1970s, and will be reconstructed using the same Thetamation process used to recreate The Reign of Terror episodes 4 and 5.
The release date is currently scheduled for late 2013.
