Guest Announcements for Hurricane Who

24 04 2009

There have been some recent additions to our Guest List that we are very much looking forward to. Now joining us this October in Orlando are:

Gareth David-Lloyd – “Ianto Jones” – Torchwood, Doctor Who

Having joined us for our very first Inside the Hub event, Gareth is a wealth of insight and fun. With Torchwood Series Three coming this summer, there are bound to be more stories to be told and more laughs to be had.

India Fisher – “Charley Pollard”, Big Finish Productions

Once in a while there comes a Companion that stands out from the rest. Before Rose ever encountered the Bad Wolf, or Donna Noble had something on her back, Charley Pollard was having amazing adventures in the TARDIS in the Big Finish Audio Range. Fisher has be a companion to both the Eighth Doctor (as played by Paul McGann) and the Sixth Doctor (as played by Colin Baker). As her journeys with the Sixth Doctor continue this Summer, we are sure she will have interesting stories to share.

Tony Lee – Writer, IDW Comics

With an extensive background, including X-Men and Superman, Tony Lee is no stranger to the world of Comic Books. With the publication of The Forgotten last year, as well this years on-going 10th Doctor Series, Lee is not a stranger to the world of Doctor Who. With a keen insight into the world of comics and writing, Tony will be an invaluable source of knowledge on this popular medium.

We are excited to be welcoming these three to Florida in the style that only we can do!!
