Big Finish will host Doctor Who stars from its audio dramas in an exclusive virtual convention on YouTube on August 1.

The six-hour online celebration is the virtual edition of Big Finish Day, an in-person convention which had to be canceled in May due to the pandemic.

Over thirty actors, musicians and writers from across their ranges will take part and Doctor Who fans are invited to join in and comment.

The Guests Include:
Paul McGann (The Eighth Doctor)
Carole Ann Ford (Susan)
Louise Jameson (Leela)
Alex Kingston (River Song)
Neve McIntosh (Madame Vastra)
Dan Starkey (Strax)
Catrin Stewart (Jenny Flint)
Nicola Walker (Liv)
Mark Bonnar (The Eleven)
Blair Mowat (composer)
Jamie Anderson (Big Finish writer, director and producer)
John Dorney (Big Finish writer and actor)
Joe Kraemer (Big Finish music and sound designer)
And more than 20 other actors, musicians and writers.

The organizers also promised that “exclusive news” will be revealed during the live-stream.

Big Finish Creative Director Nicholas Briggs released this statement:

“We were disappointed to have to cancel our annual one-day Big Finish Day event at Derby QUAD, but we racked our brains to think what was possible by way of an alternative. Throughout the coronavirus crisis, we’ve continued to produce many audio dramas so we thought a little peek into our lockdown lives might be fun. Virtual Big Finish Day promises star guests and surprises, as cast, crew and fans come together to make a special online event where everyone is invited.”

Virtual Big Finish Day will live-stream on the Big Finish YouTube channel on August 1, 16:00 BST.
