WHOlanta is an annual Doctor Who and British media and culture convention in Atlanta, GA. Formerly known as TimeGate, WHOlanta is the rebranded name of the convention that fans in the Atlanta area have loved for over ten years.
WHOlanta is run by fans FOR FANS. The convention does not profit from sales. Any money you pay for attending the convention goes into making the convention the best it can be. It goes towards paying for the venue, paying for the visual/sound equipment, and for paying our guests. Doctor Who actors aren’t free. And flights from the U.K. can get pricey. So know when you buy your membership, your membership is being used to better your experience at the con.
Attendees come from all over the Southeast, all over the nation and even from as far away as England to take part in the festivities. Launched in 2005, the convention hit its 10 year anniversary in 2015 with special guests Katy Manning and Michelle Gomez. Past Doctor Who guests have included actors Colin Baker, Nicola Bryant, Sophie Aldred, Mary Tamm, Camille Coduri, John Levene, Colin Spaull and Caitlin Blackwood, script editors Terrance Dicks and Andrew Cartmel, composer Dominic Glynn, film editor Louis Robinson, writer Jamie Mathieson, and many more.
