We are pleased to announce that Janet Fielding will be joining us as a Guest of Honour at CONsole Room 2017!
In the Whoniverse, Fielding played Tegan Jovanka, an Australian air stewardess who accompanied both the Fourth and Fifth Doctors on their adventures through time and space. Fielding left Doctor Who in 1983 but has since reprised her role as Tegan in various Doctor Who specials and Big Finish audio plays.
Outside of Doctor Who, Fielding has worked in a number of other roles in the film industry. She is a founder of Women in Film and Television UK and started Project MotorHouse, a charity that works with deprived youth. Fielding has also worked as a theatrical agent for clients such as Simon Callow, Hugh Bonneville, and even Eighth Doctor Paul McGann.
As a reminder, we’ve extended our lowest membership registration rates through February 19 to celebrate Janet joining us at this year’s convention. We hope to see you there!

We are so excited to announce that our first ever Escape Room will be at CONsole Room 2017!
Our committee has been working hard to bring you a brilliantly engaging room full of puzzles and clues. Use teamwork and critical thinking to help out the Doctor and escape the TARDIS before monsters can break in!

You’ve seen their work at our convention before – their Daleks and Cybermen have always been a delight as they roll by – and this year we are excited to announce that Ann Neubauer and David Brown will be returning to CONsole Room as featured guests!
Ann Neubauer considers Doctor Who as a long creative legacy, borne of a mission for science education and grounded in a modest budget. The program provides a lovely springboard for personal creative projects. To those ends Ann has used Dalek building as a means to learn about using tools and materials – or, has learned these things as a means to create her own Dalek! And a Davros. And she has dabbled in creating fan fiction. She lives in Minneapolis and has been a Whovian since the early 1980s.
David Brown grew up with, and continues to enjoy Doctor Who as he pursues various mechanical projects including large prop building. His props have appeared at local conventions and parades for several years. David believes in using common tools and inexpensive materials to create such projects as his Dalek, Cyberman, and Star Wars speeder bike. David lives in Minneapolis and has been a Whovian for about ten regenerations.
Please join us in welcoming Ann and David to our convention!
