Alex Marker, Artistic Director at The Questors Theatre said, “After the roaring success of our 50th anniversary celebrations, we simply couldn’t resist bringing back QWho to celebrate another milestone of this British institution. Ealing is the spiritual home of the Doctor and we’re thrilled to be welcoming just a few of the army of people that have helped make the show so special.

“We hope you can join us for this very special event as we share some exciting new drama and uncover some of our guests’ favourite memories of life aboard the TARDIS!”

Dan Starkey, who was present at the last QWho event, commented, “It doesn’t feel like ten years ago since I was last at the Questors for their 50th anniversary celebrations, but I’ll be looking forward to commemorating Doctor Who’s sixty years at our panel in February. The Sontarans have been plotting in the meantime, and there is much to discuss…”
