The Whoovers Present an Evening with The Daemons of Devil’s End
2nd February 2018 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 pm
Update: We are delighted to announce that we have secured a very special replacement guest.
Stephen Thorne was the original dæmon of course, having played Azal in The Dæmons. He is known for a string of high profile roles in Doctor Who, having in addition to Azal, played Omega in The Three Doctors, (the male) Eldrad in The Hand of Fear and the first Ogron in Frontier in Space. He appeared in the BBC radio drama The Ghosts of N-Space and has been in a number of Big Finish productions, in different roles, including reprising those of Eldrad and Omega. We are delighted to be welcoming Stephen to Derby and thank him profusely for agreeing to come at such short notice.
Update: Sadly, Damaris Hayman will no longer be able to join us for our Evening with Dæmons in February. She had a fall just before Christmas and is currently recuperating. We wish her the very best for a speedy recovery and hope that we will be able to rearrange her visit at some point in the future.
Meanwhile our event still goes ahead with Keith Barnfather David J Howe Sam Stone and the writers of the book and DVD.
We are hoping to arrange a replacement special guest, whom, all being well, will be announced in due course.
To celebrate the launch of the DVD The Daemons of Devils End, from Reeltime Pictures, and the accompanying novel from Telos Publishing, we will be welcoming Damaris Hayman the star of the DVD, who reprises her role of Miss Hawthorne from the 1971 Doctor Who story The Daemons; our friend Keith Barnfather, the producer/director of the DVD; our friend Sam Stone, the editor and co-writer of the novel and our friend David J. Howe, publisher and co-writer of the novel. Sam is also hopeful that more of the writers may also be able to attend. Of course the cover artist for the novel is our own Andrew Mark Thompson – I hope we will be able to persuade him to be there too. This should be a fabulous evening, I hope that many of you will be able to be there – and will come prepared to buy the DVD, the book or both.
Entrance £10 waged, £5 unwaged. Pay on the door only, all welcome.
