The Doctor Who Appreciation Society is to present a special convention in June to celebrate the making of Doctor Who:
Over the last 51 years the Doctor has travelled through time and space on a never ending voyage of discovery. Similarly, the making of the show itself has undertaken its own journey. Today 'Doctor Who' is a colour, HD, CGI, surround sound spectacle - a far cry from its humble beginnings as a studio bound production made for monochrome 405 line televisions.

But how has the production of the programme changed in over half a century... and exactly how have they gone about making such a show over the years?

‘Myth Makers’ will feature guests involved in the ‘The Making of Doctor Who’ on both sides of the camera, and will take place at Riverside Studios, itself a home for Doctor Who during the black and white era of the 1960s.

Join us for our usual mix of panels, autographs and on screen presentations, and find out a little more about how our favourite show gets put together...
The event takes place on the 1st June, full details and ticket booking can be found via their website.


We have a pair of tickets to the event up for grabs, courtesy of DWAS. In order to be in with a chance to win simply answer the following question:
How many credited producers of Doctor Who have there been over the first fifty years of the show, up to and including The Day of the Doctor?
Send your answer along with your name, address and where you heard about the competition to comp-mythmakers@doctorwhonews.net with the subject line "Mythmakers in Time and Space". Only one entry per postal address will be accepted. The competition is open to readers worldwide, and the closing date is 31st March 2014. If you are a winner and have already purchased tickets for the event, DWAS will refund them (up to two tickets only!).
