Writer and director Dan Freeman has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign to help support his new play.

The premise of the production – entitled A Joke - is that an Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman walk into a joke, and the production is reaching out to Doctor Who fans as it will star Seventh Doctor actor Sylvester McCoy.

They hope to launch the play at this year’s Edinburgh Festival by reaching their target of £7,000 by Monday 20th March 2017. Every little helps!

WhovianNet spent the weekend at MCM Comic Con in Liverpool and it’s safe to say that a great time was had by all!

As always, Doctor Who fans didn’t disappoint with their ever creative cosplaying efforts, and we had a great time chatting to our fellow Whovians who had dressed to impress as their favourite Doctors, companions and villains.

Conventions are always a great place to remind us how fantastic our fandom is, so a huge thanks to everyone who stopped to chat to us and pose for photos.

Special thanks to @TheDogtor, @Grandpa_Pixel and @Ruth_C_AB for the pictures!

Were you also at the event? Let us know below, and tweet us your pics at @WhovianNet!

Following on from the success of their Audience with Louise Jameson back in July, Fab Café will be hosting another event for Doctor Who fans later this month.

Eric Saward, who worked as a script editor on the series in the 1980s, will be taking part in a Q&A on Monday 28th November 2016. As is common knowledge, this particular era of the show was turbulent to say the least, and Eric will be on hand to answer audience questions and share his personal experiences of working on the series in the lead up to its historic cancellation in 1989.
