to attend this weekend's Time Lord Fest, Florida's premier Doctor Who fan convention.
The British sensation has been around forever, but has recently boomed in popularity, especially here in the States with the most recent BBC show reanimating the series. In fact, both men and women alike have run out to get their hands on the fine doctor's sonic screwdriver, though perhaps for different reasons.
The Time Lord Fest will feature prizes, the expected lavish cos-play, and the time transcending Dr. Sketchy’s Timey-Wimey Fashion Show! Attendees wishing to debate Dr. Who companion trivia will delight in themed panels and local independent authors will also be on hand, showing off their latest sci-fi and fantasy tales.
Sat., Jan. 26, noon to midnight, Zendah Grotto, 4450 W. Ohio Ave, Tampa, $10. timelordfest.com/time-lord-fest-tampa.
