Next Stop: Derby

On what's fast turning out to be a Fish Custard Tour, we'll be attending Whooverville, which is a one-day convention held at the Quad Centre in Derby.  Ran by local group The Whoovers, the convention has already established itself on the UK Con scene and is fast becoming one of the most-popular fan-run events.

The guests for Whooverville 3 include the likes of Nicola Bryant, Sarah Sutton, Frazer Hines, Tristan Peatfield, Maurice Roeves and Ian McNiece, amongst others. There'll also be various Q&A's, live podcasting, merchandising room and monster appearances, amongst other events going on during the day!  Whooverville is ideally situated for almost anyone in the UK to attend and Derby is a lovely city for a day or weekend break.  We'll be doing the weekend, so that's your guarantee of quality right there!  We will also be handing out free copies of the fanzine, so come and say hello if you're about!

Whooverville 3 is on Saturday 3rd September and tickets are £35 for adults, £15 for under 16's or £85 for a family of four.  Tickets can be booked here, or you can just pay on the day!  For more information on The Whoovers, click here to visit their website.

(P.S. For those wondering - the Whooverville team are working on showing a broadcast of the Doctor Who episode scheduled for that day!)

Fancy (reviewing) Jack & Gwen?

For Issue 7 of Fish Fingers and Custard we are going to dedicate a bit of it to the new series of Torchwood and we need reviewers to look at the series as an whole.  If you would like to contribute, please send a blank e-mail with TORCHWOOD in the subject header and I'll get back to you asap with further details.  Don't worry if you've never written a review before, we're always on the lookout for new contributors!  We're looking for anyone who is able to put down their thoughts and feelings on the series, good, bad or (in Rex's chat-up lines' case) the downright ugly.

Don't worry, your e-mail won't be tracked and I won't have scary men following you around.  I'm not allowed to do that anymore.

Cheers!
