Stars Of Time is returning.


Two Doctor Who actors will travel through space and time to make an appearance at a Weston comic convention in December.

Colin Baker, the sixth Doctor, and Paul McGann, who was the eighth man to play the famous BBC character, will both meet fans at the Tropicana.

They will be signing autographs along with Bond Girl Caroline Munro and other Doctor Who stars who are part of a new audio drama called Unholiest Order.

McGann’s career includes roles in the BBC crime drama Luther, and black comedy Withnail And I.

He is due to join the cast of Holby City in December.

Munro is best known for her role in the James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me.

Budding Jedis can take part in Lightsaber training and meet a host of Star Wars characters, including a giant R2D2.

Davros and his evil army of Daleks will also attend, and people can view two Batmobiles.

A version of Iron Man is also expected to be on display.

There will be a Beauty And The Beast set to take photos on, and trader tables selling thousands of toys and collectables.

Weston street artist JPS is releasing two signed limited edition prints, and the winner of the cosplay competition will be able to take one home.

There will also be the chance to take part in a charity auction and take home some original cinema posters and banners, pick up some freebies or try your luck in the competitions.

Stars Of Time will take place at the Tropicana, in Marine Parade, on December 3 from 10am-5.30pm.

Tickets, priced £3.50-16, are available from
