  • Doctor Who: A dedicated area celebrating the 50th anniversary of the iconic doctor
  • Star Trek: To boldly go where no show has gone before! A selection of screen used props and prop replicas with apparently something special to still be announced!

The show is also going to try for a world record for the largest lightsabre battle and has the Robots Live championships too alongside a cosplay and gaming area so no matter what aspect of shows you like it seems like there’ll be something here for you!

  1. Actually it’s not run by the MCM organisers at all. Completely separate from what I’ve been told. But from what I can see, who’s appearing, and the stuff going on, it should be a damn fun convention! 😛
