Doctor Who Society of Canada

As most of you know by now, I’m one of the co-founders for the DWSC based out of Toronto, and help run the Ottawa Branch. Today one of my co-founders, Cindy, was super awesome & added a story about us to our website!! Check out the main page!

Our Story in Print

On Thursday the story Kelly Kent wrote about us for the Canadian Gazette came out! It is so wonderfully written, and absolutely perfect! We’re so thankful to Kelly for writing it!

EXTERMINATE!

Dalek Ace has been announced as a special guest at the event! Like the Daleks in DWSC, Ace is fully motorized, with a voice changer. He can also rotate his head a full 360, and his telescopic plunger arm bends so he can carry bowls/trays. So cool!

Montreal Comic Con

This past weekend Brandon & I were working with our DWSC folks at Montreal Comic Con. Thus why we’ve been a bit quiet in the updating department the past few days.

This was the first time DWSC was at MCC, and I think I can speak for everyone when I say it was great! This was also our first time working the booth, surprisingly enough. Though we’re usually at all the same conventions & we want to help, it’s difficult because we always have James. This time though we made the arrangements to leave him at home so we could work. Which in some ways, kind of sucked, because Jason David Frank from Powers Rangers was there, as well as the Ecto 1 from Ghostbusters – Two things James would have LOVED! But as much as we love having him at conventions, it was so much easier not having him & we loved working the booth.

Some highlights from the convention.. Our Daleks Clifton, Souffle & Dreadnaught won Best In Show in the Masquerade!!

All in all it was a great weekend! We brought tons of flyers with us to help promote our donation page. Lots were taken, so we’re hoping that’s a good sign! We have a couple more events/conventions coming up in the next couple of months. One of which is the new Pop Expo run by the same folks behind Ottawa Comic Con & Montreal Comic Con, and will take place December 7-8th. One of the featured guests is Sylvester McCoy! So if you’re in the Ottawa area, be sure to check it out. Brandon & I, along with Dalek Souffle, Clifton & our Ottawa DWSC team will be there!

Represent!

It was officially confirmed to us today, that we are indeed the ONLY Canadians chosen to take part in the event! Looks like we’ll be representing Canada!

Oh Canada Baby!

I guess in some ways it’s fitting, since I’m one of the co-founders of the Doctor Who Society Of Canada Canada’s largest Doctor Who.. well Society! 🙂
