‘Doctor Who’ stars AND CATS combine for best fan event ever

Okay, when we saw the poster for this on Twitter we thought it was made up because, frankly, it just sounded too good to be true.

Coming to Birmingham next month is the GCCF’s Supreme Cat Show, featuring Doctor Who actors Colin Baker (the Sixth Doctor), John Leeson (K9) and Peter Purves (’60s companion Steven Taylor).

The guests will be available for photos and autographs and will be hosting a series of ‘An audience with’ chats throughout the day.

Highlights include the announcement of Cat of the Year, fun kitten classes and sci-fi themed fancy dress.

A day of Doctor Who and cats… DOCTOR WHO AND CATS! It’s not a dream, folks.


The event launches with a Gala Dinner on Friday 21 October, with the main show taking place on Saturday 22 October.

Other guests include Blake’s 7 stars Paul Darrow and Michael Keating.

The new season of Doctor Who is currently filming in Cardiff and begins on BBC One in April 2017.

Here’s everything we know so far about Season 10.

    I saw something today about David Tennant judging a dog fancy dress competition, so clearly there IS life after leaving the TARDIS.

      Poor guy looked very out of place from the video available. It’s part of the PR efforts he has had to make to curry favour with the local community after upsetting his neighbours and the local planning committee with plans to build a large extension on to a listed property and then trying to pressure them by getting the media involved. He’s popped up for a couple of other unlikely events in Chiswick.

      Colin Baker and Peter Purves with cats though looks genuinely great though.

    This might be one of the coolest thing ever! I’m sure Peter Purves will be right at home after all those years hosting the dog shows on TV.

    Damn, I have family event that day. Why couldn’t this be a week earlier or a week later???
