The Capitol³ guest ANNEKE WILLS (aka companion Polly): Anneke won her first role at the age of 11 in a film called "Child's Play". She then studied drama at the Arts Educational School in London. Her early roles included a 1957 appearance as Roberta in the first television version of "The Railway Children". She appeared in Doctor Who from 1966 to 1967 alongside both the First and Second Doctors, battling Daleks, Cybermen, War Machines and Macra amongst many others. Further television credits include "The Avengers" and "Strange Report". After travelling the world for some 25 years, Anneke returned home in the mid-1990s. Since then she has immersed herself in the worlds of Doctor Who, and we are delighted that she is joining us at #thecapitolevent #doctorwho #drwho #dwas #williamhartnell #patricktroughton #michaelcraze #doctorwhoappreciationsociety

#thecapitolevent guest: DOMINIC GLYNN. Dominic is best known by Doctor Who fans for his 1986 arrangement of the legendary theme tune. He also wrote the incidental music for five stories: The Mysterious Planet, The Ultimate Foe, Dragonfire, The Happiness Patrol and Survival (pictured, recently released on CD and Vinyl.) Other work includes the score for the British crime thriller 'Bad Day' and the 2014 movie 'A Dangerous Game'. As a regular writer for Universal Music Publishing Group, and other production music libraries, his music has featured in episodes of The Simpsons, Red Dwarf, Episodes and Eerie Indiana, as well as the feature films 'Holy Man' and 'Kevin & Perry Go Large'. In addition to all the regular convention commitments that guests make, as the centrepiece of Saturday Night Live Dominic will be performing his one-hour concert of remixes his music from Doctor Who for the first time ever in the UK.

The DWAS Reference Department produced a number of ‘The Doctor Who Chronicles’ books in the late 90s/early 00s, written by Andrew Pixley and David Brunt. Included were episode by episode guides to each 1960s season, detailing script deletions and amendments, original storyline ideas and extensive notes on the finished episodes. The books are no longer available but occasionally pop up on eBay. Here’s a look inside! #dwas #doctorwho #drwho #doctorwhoappreciationsociety #williamhartnell #patricktroughton #ebay

The Capitol III guest ROBERT RITCHIE: Rob graduated from the University of Sunderland in 2012 with a BA in Video and New Media Production. His work on You Tube came to the attention of BBC Worldwide, who employed him to recreate the iconic Dad's Army opening, as well as closing credits, in High Definition for the missing 1969 episode "A Stripe for Frazer". Following on from this he was a key member of the team that brought us the fully animated "The Power of the Daleks" in 2016. Last year Rob was responsible for building and animating 3D elements, as well as compositing character animations with background artwork, for the recreated "Shada". This will be Rob's first British Doctor Who convention and we are delighted he will be joining us. #doctorwho #drwho #dwas #thecapitolevent #doctorwhoappreciationsociety

The Capitol III guest WILLIAM RUSSELL. It would be fair to say that William is a Doctor Who legend. In 1963 he was cast as the Doctor's first male companion, science teacher Ian Chesterton, appearing in 77 episodes before departing at end of The Chase, alongside Jacqueline Hill who had played fellow teacher Barbara Wright.

In the late 1990s William returned to the role of Ian for the VHS release of the "The Crusade", recording several in-character scenes to camera, which helped to bridge the gap between the existing episodes. He subsequently contributed commentaries and interviews to the DVD range. In 2013 he had a cameo role in "An Adventure in Space and Time". William's CV is simply wonderful. On film, he was in"The Great Escape", and played one of the Edlers in the 1978 version of "Superman". On television he played the title character in "The Adventures of Sir Lancelot" in the 1950's, while four decades later he played the tragic Ted Sullivan in Coronation Street.

It is an honour to have William joining us at The Capitol. #doctorwho #drwho #dwas #doctorwhoappreciationsociety #thecapitolevent

The Capitol III guest: MATT SANDERS. Matt has been a designer and model-maker in the TV/Film industry since the early 90s, when he built miniature scenery for the "Wallace & Gromit" films. He subsequently art directed animated movies, including Neil Gaiman's "Coraline", and Aardman's "The Pirates!" In 2016, he worked on the Doctor Who spin-off "Class", in the roles of graphic designer, concept artist, and sci-fi prop-maker. He then became the Art Department draftsman on Doctor Who's Season 10, drawing up sets including the Vatican Library, the Monks' Pyramids, the Ice Warrior Hive, the Mondas Spaceship, and the roof of the Cyberman Hospital. Most recently, for the 2017 Xmas special, he recreated sets from "The Tenth Planet", as well as the Hartnell-era Police Box and Console Room.

It's great to welcome Matt and we look forward to hearing about what it was like behind the scenes at the end of the Capaldi and Moffat eras. #doctorwho #drwho #thecapitolevent #dwas #scificonvention #petercapaldi
