Doctor Who set to appear at Dylan Thomas Centre

In the wake of the announcement thatPeter Capaldi is to replace Matt Smith as the Doctor, a Doctor Who day is being organised at the Dylan Thomas  Centre on Saturday 2nd November as part of the Dylan Thomas festival  2013 being organised by Swansea city council. 

Festival organisers are lining up Doctor Who stars and writers for the day, including Louise Jameson who played Leela to Tom Baker's Doctor, and Peter Miles who played Nyder in Genesis Of The Daleks.

There will also be a children's workshop with comics artists Mike Collins, a writer's panel  and an invasion by the Daleks. 

Councellor Nick Bradley, Swansea Council's Cabinet Member for Regeneration, said: “Dr Who has been an enormously popular programme on British TV for five decades. It has millions of fans, not just in the UK but across the rest of the world too.

 “We also, of course, have strong links with Dr Who in Swansea, with buildings like the Guildhall having been used as filming locations and major stars like Kylie Minogue visiting the city to film scenes".

 “It's events that like this that raise Swansea's profile and strengthen our growing reputation as a leading city of culture.”
