We are very pleased to welcome Big Finish Productions to TimeGate for the very first time! Executive Producer Jason Haigh-Ellery and producer/director/writer/performer Nick Briggs will be bringing a universe of Doctor Who audio adventures to Atlanta next May.
Nick is best known as the voice of the Daleks,the Cybermen and the Judoon in Doctor Who from 2005-present, working on set alongside Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi. His Judoon duties also took him onto The Sarah Jane Adventures and he appeared on screen as ruthless government crisis advisor Rick Yates in Torchwood: Children of Earth.

As we wind down from a very successful 2015 (our largest attendance ever) we’re already gearing up for 2016, and we have our first two guest announcements: Director GRAEME HARPER and TERRY “Davros” MOLLOY!
Mr. Harper’s involvement in Doctor Who stretches from him being in the studio as a very young intern when Patrick Troughton was filming his very first story, “Power of the Daleks”, to becoming one of the power directors at the BBC. He worked heavily during the Pertwee and Tom Baker eras of the show and then directed Peter Davison and Colin Baker. He returned to the show in 2006 to direct David Tennant in 13 episodes, winning a BAFTA Award in the process.
Mr. Molloy, as you’ll know, is the Davros of the 80s. He worked with Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy on television. He has reprised his iconic role in numerous Big Finish Productions. He’s also played Davros in the 2005 stage play “The Trial of Davros”.
Website updates will continue over the next couple of days. We’ll announce as soon as online sales for admission to TG’16 will be available.
We’re very pleased to announce that the wonderful folks from RetroTV, the broadcast home of Classic Doctor Who in the US, will be coming to TimeGate! RetroTV‘s run of Doctor Who began with the first two episodes of “An Unearthly Child” on August 4, 2014, showing two episodes every week night and a block of four episodes every Saturday evening. They’ll have a table all weekend so you can meet them, and we’ll be doing a Q&A in Main Programming on Saturday at 2:00. Learn how Doctor Who came to Retro, what plans they have for Doctor Who in the future, and how to get Retro in your area if your cable provider doesn’t already carry it. Plus, learn about all their other great Classic programming and maybe find out what’s coming down the pike in the future. Visit them at www.myretrotv.com

We’re pleased to welcome PixelWho back to TimeGate!
