CALLING all Long Island and local area Sassenachs and Outlanders.
November 14, 2015, I will be hosting the Outlander panel at the Long Island’s Doctor Who Convention.
Why would Outlander be present at a Doctor Who convention? There is an intrinsic link between the two. A Doctor Who episode, inspired the location and timeline for the practice book, that became the ongoing Outlander book series by Diana Gabaldon and the now popular Starz television series.
Frazer Hines, who portrayed the kilt wearing Jamie McCrimmon on the above mentioned Doctor Who episode, alongside Annette Badland, who currently plays Mrs. Fitzgibbons on the television show, will be on the panel.
Frazer also recently had a cameo appearance on Season 1 of the Starz television series, playing Sir Ian Fletcher, governor of Wentworth Prison, where Jamie Fraser was being held by Black Jack Randall. For her tie-in, Annette has appeared on Doctor Who, as Margaret Blaine.
I am quite excited about meeting these two and spending an hour in q and a with them. If you have a question you would like me to ask, please email me , tweet or Facebook me by Friday, 11/13. Please use hashtag #ADOOLIWho in tweets.
The panel is on Saturday 11/14 at 6pm, Program C. Tickets are still available for the Con.
A gracious thank you to Ken Deep, the L.I. Who showrunner, for inviting me to participate. Follow LI Who on Twitter and Facebook.
The panel will be recorded for the podcast and YouTube channel.
