Christopher Eccleston making first-ever convention appearance!


Christopher Eccleston is to make his convention debut at this year's London Film and Comic Con held at the Olympia Exhibition Centre. Eccleston will be singing autographs and taking part in photo sessions on Sunday 29th July.

His involvement in the event been billed as his "first-ever signing at a convention event in the world" with plenty of things on offer for fans, including the opportunity for a photo shoot in front of the TARDIS and 'diamond pass' access featuring exclusive merchandise.

The actor not only played the role of the Ninth Doctor in Doctor Who when the show returned in 2005, but has also starred in the Marvel film "Thor 2" and the TV series 'Heroes".

It's common knowledge that Eccleston has had a rocky relationship with Doctor Who, citing various reasons for his departure from the show after only filming one series.

Recently however Eccleston has been more open to talking about the show, speaking to Radio Times about Doctor Who he said "My relationship with my three immediate superiors – the showrunner, the producer and co-producer – broke down irreparably during the first block of filming and it never recovered. They lost trust in me, and I lost faith and trust and belief in them."

He then later acknowledged: "Some of my anger about the situation came from my own insecurity. They employed somebody [as The Doctor] who was not a natural light comedian."

London Film & Comic Con will play host to a number of actors from TV and film offering photo and autography opportunities. Current guests lined up include Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who), Pearl Mackie (Doctor Who) and Meat Loaf (Rocky Horror Picture Show).
