Christopher Eccleston to Appear At The London Film Comic Con 2018

Christopher Eccleston is set to appear at the London Film Comic Con, marking the first time the Ninth Doctor himself will take part in a signing.

The A-Word actor will appear on the Sunday 29th July at the Olympia London event.

At least one of Eccleston’s successors, Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi, is also due to appear over the weekend. His companion Pearl Mackie (who played Bill Potts on the show), David Bradley (the First Doctor during the most recent Christmas special), Sixth Doctor Colin Baker and Seventh Sylvester McCoy will also be at the convention.

Eccleston will be signing autographs for the price of £95 and appearing in photos for £85, according to the Comic Con website.

Despite becoming more vocal about the nature of his departure from the show after one series, unlike Capaldi and Mackie, Eccleston will not be taking part in a stage talk.

Recently Eccleston told the Radio Times about how he was “out of his comfort zone” during series one.

He said:

“My relationship with my three immediate superiors – the showrunner, the producer and co-producer – broke down irreparably during the first block of filming and it never recovered. They lost trust in me, and I lost faith and trust and belief in them.”
