Julian Glover & Ian McNiece at Stars of Time!

The Stars of Time event returns to Weston-super-Mare this weekend, and there are plenty of things for Doctor Who fans to enjoy.

Perhaps most notably attending is Julian Glover, best-known for playing Scaroth, last of the Jagaroth in City of Death. Whovians will also know him from The Crusades, in which he played Richard the Lionheart, but he’s also starred in Game of Thrones, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Silent Witness, to name but a few!

Joining him will be Winston Churchill himself, Ian McNiece, who we last saw in 2011’s The Wedding of River Song. He made his Doctor Who debut in the previous year’s Victory of the Daleks and made a brief cameo in The Pandorica Opens; however, many are familiar with him through the hit ITV show, Doc Martin.

Returning guests include the Sixth Doctor, Colin Baker; John Levene (Benton throughout the Third Doctor era); Jon Davey (Daleks, Cybermen, Ood, Vigil – and then some); and extra, Peter Roy (Castrovalva; The Myth Makers). Further newcomers to the annual convention include the prolific Peter Wyngarde (Planet of Fire); the lovely Angela Douglas (Battlefield); Torchwood‘s Kai Owen; and the beautiful Sarah Louise Madison (The Angels Take Manhattan; Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS).

Take a look at the official site to find out which stars are attending which days. Admission prices (including entrance to the Helicopter Museum) are:

Adult: £10 Child: £6.50 OAP’s/Disabled: £6.50
Family Ticket: £26 (2 adults & 2 children)
Family Ticket: £29 (2 adults & 3 children)
Under 4’s free

There will also be exhibitors selling all manner of Who goodness; previously, the organisers had reportedly got complaints over the show’s set-up, so this year, expect an improved layout!


When he’s not watching television, reading books ‘n’ Marvel comics, listening to The Killers, and obsessing over script ideas, Philip Bates (Kasterborous' former Editor) pretends to be a freelance writer. He enjoys collecting everything. He is the co-founder of The Doctor Who Companion: http://thedoctorwhocompanion.com/
