As part of the convention’s celebration Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary, Peter Davison – who played the titular timelord between 1981 and 1984 – will meet fans and sign autographs at the event. Davison is known for playing the fifth Doctor following Tom Baker’s fourth incarnation, and featured in the long-running sci-fi series last year in Jodie Whittaker’s final episode. He will will appear at the event on Saturday, June 3 and Sunday, June 4.

The actor is also known for his roles in shows like All Creatures Great and Small, The Larkins and Gentleman Jack. Davison is also the father-in-law of David Tennant, who played the tenth Doctor and is set to return to the show later this year.
