The Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo (AKA Edmonton Expo, our city’s biggest pop culture convention) returns this September 21-23, 2018, AND I NEED TO START WRITING IN ALL CAPS NOW BECAUSE THERE IS NOT ONLY ONE DOCTOR COMING TO THE EXPO THERE ARE TWO.
THERE ARE TWO DOCTORS COMING TO THE EDMONTON EXPO.
Keep scrollin’ to read about my love for all things Doctor Who, and enter to win a pair of weekend passes to the Expo!
So. If you haven’t already gathered, I’m a big Doctor Who fan.
Both Mike and I are.
God damn. I love it so much.
The characters, the writing, the worlds.
Doctor Who guests are always our biggest Expo draw.
A couple years ago we got a photo with Peter Capaldi (The Twelfth Doctor, a wonderful man with wild hair!) at the Calgary Expo, and the year before that, a photo at the Edmonton Expo with Jenna Coleman (The Twelfth Doctor’s companion Clara Oswald, who was super sweet albeit a bit frazzled by all the fans there to see her lol).
Mike and I even casually cosplayed as the Twelfth Doctor and Clara one year!
(No one got it lol, we were maybe too casual lol).
We’ve also seen John Barrowman a.k.a. Captain Jack Harkness at Calgary Expo (his panel was amazing!!!!) and I was devastated that we missed Alex Kingston (River Song) in Edmonton last year (we were out of town).
Some people go to the Expo for the artwork.
Some people go for the games.
Some people go for the comics.
Some people go for the cosplay.
Mike and I go to the Expo for Doctor Who!
Because we were a bit late to the Doctor Who party, we felt like we had missed David Tenant and Matt Smith’s Expo appearances in particular. Every Expo we go to, while fun, and has lots to offer, still left us hoping “maybe David Tennant or Matt Smith will be there next year.”
THIS IS THE YEAR YOU GUYS.
THIS IS THE YEAR!
Look, I need to pause here and assure readers that I would totally be calm, cool and collected around them, I’m actually quite a chill fan lol and obviously, if I was doing something like hosting a panel with one of them (HINT, HINT, Edmonton Expo! lol) I would present myself in the utmost professional manner, lol but this is my blog and I can use as many exclamation marks and capital letters of excitement that I want to while previewing this okay.
Now, the Edmonton Expo is encouraging my behaviour by providing me a pair of weekend passes to give away to another Doctor Who fan!
