The Doctor is IN!

…and it seems, not a moment too soon!

We’re delighted to announce that the Doctor is IN for CONsole Room 2015 because Colin Baker will be joining us! Colin is best known to Doctor Who fans from his time as the Sixth Doctor (1984-1986), though you may also recognize him as Commander Maxil, the role he played in the Fifth Doctor story Arc of Infinity. In addition to Doctor Who, Colin has had a long and varied career in theatre, television, film, and writing and we couldn’t be happier to welcome him to CONsole Room 2015: The Twin Cities Dilemma.

We’re just getting started with our guest list, so head over to our Registration page to pick up your membership now before prices go up next Sunday (16 Nov). And of course, don’t forget to visit our Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages to join in the conversation there.
