BBC Studios in Africa have announced that it will be hosting a special Doctor Who experience for the relaunch of the series at Africa’s first ever Comic Con next month.
In partnership with Showmax (who will exclusively air the new series in South Africa), from 14th to 16th September, new fans from across the continent can head to Johannesburg and celebrate the return of show with an immersive TARDIS experience, ahead of Doctor Who’s return with Jodie Whittaker taking over as the Doctor.
At the three-day Comic Con Africa event, fans will be able to plunge headfirst into an immersive VR experience on board the iconic TARDIS, complete with video games, trivia and fan giveaways. There will also be the first ever African Whovian meet-up. Attendees and fans of the show will be able to come together and enjoy a screening of the final episode of Series 10, Twice Upon a Time, where the new Doctor makes her first appearance, setting the scene perfectly for all of the exhilarating and nail-biting intergalactic adventures she’ll embark on alongside her new friends, played by British favourite Bradley Walsh (Law & Order: UK), Tosin Cole (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Mandip Gill (The Good Karma Hospital).
The Cosplay screenings will take place between 13.00 and 14.00 CAT on the 14th, 15th and 16th of September in screening room 2 – the Kyalami Conference Room.
BBC Studios can be found at Stand B113 in the Exhibition Hall.
