Why Should You Come to Gallifrey One?
The longest-running annual Doctor Who convention in the world, Gallifrey One has been in existence for 23 years. But for those of you who have never been with us before, don’t just let our experience or long track record or lengthy list of guests persuade you alone. Here are some things you should check out about the convention, which will hopefully persuade you:
In 2013, guest Ed Stradling made this special video during the convention which we were able to show at Closing Ceremonies, a beloved wrap up of the year’s festivities.
In February 2011, Chris Hardwick came to the convention along with a camera crew to film a segment on CBS Television’s The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, which you can enjoy at right (click to play). Watch as Chris and the long-suffering “Late Show” intern Bridger encounter Daleks and Doctor Who fans galore:
In 2010, Peter Davison (the fifth Doctor) couldn’t make it to the convention due to his casting in the play Legally Blonde. He decided to send along a video message to the convention instead… with some very special guest stars.
In 2011, Peter Davison couldn’t make it, either. Or so he said. Then something magical happened.
In 2009, Gallifrey One celebrated our twentieth anniversary. Here’s the video we showed, with twenty years of photographs saluting our attendees, our volunteers, and guests both alive and dearly departed.
