Award-winning director Toby Haynes will be appearing at the Official Doctor Who Convention next month, it has been announced.

Haynes, who helmed The Pandorica Opens, The Big Bang - together comprising the Series 5 two-part finale that last year netted him the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation (Short Form) - A Christmas Carol, The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon, said:
I love the idea of a convention with a difference, bringing together all the people who make the show and letting the fans see the script-to-screen process in person. Often when I meet fans I'm blown away by their knowledge of Doctor Who and their enthusiasm to find out more, and this event will go a long way to fulfilling that desire!

The event takes place on 24th and 25th March at the Millennium Centre in Cardiff, where attendees will also get to see Matt Smith, Steven Moffat, Arthur Darvill, Mark Sheppard, Nicholas Briggs, Ian McNeice, Raquel Cassidy, Barnaby Edwards, Simon Fisher-Becker, Stuart Milligan, Tom MacRae, Millennium FX's Neill Gorton, special effects supervisor Danny Hargreaves, director of photography Stephan Pehrsson, production designer Michael Pickwoad, casting director Andy Pryor, script editors Caroline Henry and Gary Russell, and producer Marcus Wilson.
