Doctor Who Festival -
cosplay comes of age?

Today the BBC announced a new official “convention” - they don’t like using that word, the 50th Anniversary event was a CELEBRATION and this year it’s called a FESTIVAL.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10am - so precious little notice as usual - expect the traditional ticket scramble.


I’m sure you have read all about it on the various news feeds and forums, where there are a plethora of opinions and speculation - which I have no intention of adding to.

But the things that’s catching my eye is the costume display - someone likely to be akin to what was set up at the 50th Celebration exactly two years prior to the Festival - and the Cosplay Showcase.

I’m hoping the Cosplay Showcase is the BBC finally taking the cosplay community seriously and not just using them as the geeks in silly costumes. Here’s hoping.

  1. "geeks"? "silly costumes"? It's a shame DW fans don't hold themselves to as high standards as yours. I bet those peasants don't even make their own Baker scarves. Charlatans.
