Doctor Who writer and actor Mark Gatiss is to speak at Annual Lunch for Galha LGBT Humanists

Gatiss, who also penned the Emmy nominated drama An Adventure in Space and Time, will be the special guest speaker at an event in London on 30 November celebrating Galha LGBT Humanists, a network for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender humanists.

Gatiss is the writer and co-creator of Sherlock, and writer of League of Gentlemen, and has appeared in in fan-pleasing recurring roles in shows like Game of Thrones and Being Human.

He has been a firm supporter of campaigns for LGBT rights, as well as humanist activism, over many years. At the Galha Annual Lunch, he will be talking with guests about his commitment to these issues, and toasting to another successful year for Galha, which brings together LGBT people for special events and promotes equality and diversity, particularly in respect of sexual orientation and identity matters.

The lunch, which will be at Browns Covent Garden in central London, will see Gatiss honoured with the 2014 LGBT Humanists award, and will also feature a fundraising raffle. All profits will go directly to funding Galha’s activities.

Riccy Unwin, Chair of Galha LGBT Humanists, said
Mark is a fantastic actor and writer, and we couldn’t be more pleased to have him as the guest of honour at this year’s Annual Lunch. The Annual Lunch is always one of Galha’s most popular events, and this year is shaping up to be a very special occasion. Any fans of Mark ’s who are curious about what we do and would like to come along are more than welcome to join us at Browns on 30 November.
Tickets for the event are on sale now.

Tiny Rebel Games, the creators of the Doctor Who Legacy Series have announced the addition of the Fourth Doctor, as portrayed by Tom Baker, to the game, making the set of Doctors complete.
When we launched our game, just under a year ago, we had only the 10th and 11th Doctors included. Over the year, we fulfilled one big part of our promise of diligently working our way back through the 50 year history of Doctor Who by adding all of the Doctors! And we did this while also pushing forward with the series with our groundbreaking weekly support of Season 8 with new content including the 12th Doctor, new allies like Danny Pink and Saibra, and new costumes for favorites like Clara, Vastra and Jenny.

Next week's edition of the Radio Times features Peter Capaldi as the Doctor on its front cover as the magazine looks at the two-part series finale which starts this Saturday with Dark Water at 8:15pm on BBC One.

Famous fans, TV critics, children, and personalities share their thoughts on the latest incarnation, as played by Capaldi, including Professor Brian Cox, writer Armando Iannucci, singer/songwriter Marc Almond, Keeley Hawes, and even a former Doctor in the form of Tom Baker, who said:
He’s a wonderful choice to play the Doctor. Instantly one felt: this fellow comes from far far away, he’s strange. An instant frisson. And what’s the word? Yes, got it! Alien, he’s an alien. I salute him.
There is also a "Master Quiz" enabling readers to test their Doctor Who knowledge.

In addition, the digital version of the magazine includes a 30 page Monster supplement, featuring pictures of the Doctor’s greatest foes from the Radio Times archive.
