For Immediate Release-
WHOlanta 2018 About More Than Just Doctor Who
While the main focus of WHOlanta 2018, Atlanta’s premier Doctor Who convention, May 4-6 at the HiltonAtlanta Airport hotel, is the legendary science fiction program, there are more aspects to the annual three day gathering.
British Culture – and pop culture – is also well represented and celebrated as a part of the convention, which was named by The Guardian newspaper as one of the top five Doctor Who conventions in the United States.
“Fans of Doctor Who also tend to be big fans of all things British,” said WHOlanta Vice President and Programming Coordinator Alan Siler. “We work to bring our convention goers a slice of England in more ways than one.”
That includes panels on British television shows, films and literature, including Sherlock, Red Dwarf, The Prisoner, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Blake’s 7, Life On Mars, Kingsman, Broadchurch, the James Bond films and more.
There’s even a panel that allows people to “Ask A British Person,” allowing curious convention goers to satiate their curiosity on all aspects of British life.
In addition, the dealer’s room features a unique British flare, including sellers of English foods, sweets and various items usually not available at their local markets.
Of course, Doctor Who is the main focus of WHOlanta 2018, with various panels, question and answer sessions and other programming slated for the weekend. That includes appearances by classic Doctor Who actor Louise Jameson, who portrayed the Fourth Doctor’s companion Leela, and new series director Rachel Talalay, among others.
WHOlanta 2018 will take place May 4-6 at the Hilton Atlanta Airport hotel, located at 1031 Virginia Avenue N/A, Atlanta, GA.
