Guest Update: Camille Coduri


We’re thrilled to finally be able to announce that WHOlanta 2017 will be welcoming CAMILLE CODURI to Atlanta for the very first time! You’ll recognize her, of course, from her very popular turn as Jackie Tyler, Rose’s mum, in the Eccleston and Tennant years of Doctor Who. This will be Ms. Coduri’s first-ever convention appearance in Georgia and possibly even the Southeast. Ms. Coduri will be available to sign autographs and for portraits with fans. She joins our other guests Colin Baker, Jamie Mathieson, Kelly Yates and many more. Check out all of our other guests by visiting the Guests page.

Guest Update: PixelWho


We’re very pleased to welcome back to WHOlanta PixelWho! Now in its 7th year, PixelWho is focused on creating a complete visual character dictionary and episode guide for Doctor Who fans, in limited edition 8-bit style art prints. The goal is to document every major and incidental character in story order from every Doctor as a way to celebrate the creativity and dedication of all the artists who have worked on the program over the past 50 years. Also, PixelWho is providing pixelated backgrounds, characters, and designs for a special multi-level storyline in the official BBC Facebook and mobile app game, Doctor Who: Legacy, called “Bigger on the Inside.” Welcome back  Nathan and Ly! For more information about PixelWho and all of our fabulous guests, visit the Guests page.

Guest Update: Kelly Yates


We’re very pleased to announce that comic book artist Kelly Yates is returning to WHOlanta after a three-year absence! Kelly is an incredibly talented artist and creator as well as being a pretty amazing gentleman. He is best known for his work on IDW’s and Titan’s Doctor Who comic books, especially Doctor Who: The Forgotten and Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time. He is the creator and artist of Amber Atoms and MonstHer. When Kelly is not on panels, he’ll be at his table selling prints of his work; drop by, say hello, and pick up some art for your wall! To read more about Kelly and all our other guests, visit our Guests page!

Guest Update: Cancellation


It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Louise Jameson has had to cancel her appearance at WHOlanta 2017. She just signed on to a play that runs from April through June. She extends her disappointment to our audience and asked (twice!) that we keep her in mind and invite her back another time (which, of course, we will!). But never fear – we will have new guest announcements hopefully very soon, one we’ve been working on for the past month and a half already. WHOlanta 2017 is still going to be an amazing weekend!

New Guests!

guest-authorsI’ve spent most of this afternoon getting the website updated to include some of the guests that have been added over the past couple of weeks. First, we have returning favorites Lee Martindale and Kathryn Sullivan, fabulous authors with an impressive body of knowledge on many topics! If you’ve been at WHOlanta the past few years, especially around the Gallifrey and Library tracks, you’ve surely met these ladies. They both have new works coming in 2017, so you’ll hear a lot about that! Also, I’m very pleased to welcome to the WHOlanta family Kaitlin Bevis, an author from Athens, GA who writes novels of modern-day stories based on Greek mythology. She’s also a big Doctor Who fan, so you’ll be seeing her all around the convention. This is her first time at WHOlanta and I know she’s looking forward to meeting all of you! Stay tuned, there’s more announcements coming!
