Doctor Who @ SDCC 2010

The San Diego ComicCon event is taking place this month and on the 22nd of July, with a few Doctor Who related talks to enjoy.

There will be one seminar entitled “From screen to comics” in which several talented comic writers talk about how they convert popular TV shows into a 32 page extravaganza, writers include Tony Lee and Peter David. They’ll be talking about various shows including True Blood and above all, Doctor Who.

The other presentation will be called “The British Invasion” and will feature five top UK writers talking about what makes modern British Science Fiction unique. Included in the panel will be none other than Dan Abnett (writer of various Doctor Who plays for Big Finish and for the BBC audio books version of Torchwood), Paul Cornell (Father’s Day, 2005 and Human Nature/The Family of Blood, 2007) and Toby Whithouse (School Reunion, 2006 and The Vampires of Venice, 2010).

This looks set to be a great ComicCon and if you’re a Doctor Who fan, a great way to hear some brilliant writers talk about the inception of their ideas.

What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
