There are more Doctor Who convention shenanigans this weekend as twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald) and John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness) attend Washington, DC’s Awesome Con at the Walter E. Washington Convention Centre (3rd-5th June).
Peter and Jenna will be attending the con on Sunday 5th June only, while John Barrowman is there all weekend. All VIP tickets with the Who stars are now sold out but individual photo ops and autographs are still available.
A Q&A panel with Peter and Jenna is sceduled for Sunday afternoon in Hall D while anything goes at John Barrowman’s panel on Saturday.
Other guests include Kevin Smith, director of Chasing Amy and Mallrats, among many other films. One of the stars of Mallrats, Jeremy London, will also appear at the convention. Several Star Wars actors will also appear at Awesome Con. Ray Park, the actor behind the Darth Maul mask, will appear (unclear if he will be himself or red and black) as well as David Browse, the man in the Darth Vader suit. Tim Rose, who plays the vaguely amphibious Admiral Ackbar, will also be there. The original Batman and Robin, Adam West and Burt Ward, will be on hand as well – hopefully pulling up in the famous Batcycle with its sidecar.
Awesome Con is an annual comic-con that celebrates what they happily call “geekdom.” It has the all the cosplay, comic books, original art, collectables you could want, as well as discussion panels, contests, games, and even events for children.
