I had an incredible time at the Doctor Who Festival which took place at London Excel this weekend. Friday began with interviews with Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Michelle Gomez, Ingrid Oliver, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat. They were all so lovely and Peter Capaldi loved my Twelfth Doctor cosplay!
Hosted/judged 3 Cosplay Showcases across the weekend with Doctor Who costume designer Ray Holman and Natalie Ellner from Millennium FX. We had over 200 entries each day from all ages and it was so lovely to see so many amazing costumes on display!
On Sunday we recorded a special edition of Doctor Who: The Fan Show with a live audience and it couldn't have been more successful! Seats were full and guests Carrie-Hope Fletcher and Ashens were fantastic. You'll be able to see it on Tuesday at 6pm UK time on the official Doctor Who YouTube channel.
I am very overwhelmed by the amount of people who approached me for autographs/photos across the weekend and told me how much they love Doctor Who: The Fan Show. FiveWhoFans also got a lot of mentions and felt very emotional on Saturday when I saw all of the team together. It's because I started making videos with them that I'm doing this job today! It felt very special to see them there.
Got to catch up with loads of friends and met loads of new people too!
It's honestly been the most amazing weekend and I am so lucky to be doing what I'm doing right now. I am pinching myself everyday.
