Event News: ‘We Are Cult Goes Behind The Sofa’ – 25 Jan 2020

❉ Join us for a fun, friendly afternoon devoted to Doctor Who, in Cardiff’s coolest pub!

The first We Are Cult event of 2020, WE ARE CULT GOES BEHIND THE SOFA, is taking place upstairs in the fantastic Tiny Rebel Cardiff, 25 Westgate Street, later this month and it’s a celebration of all things DOCTOR WHO, with a special emphasis on the marvellous animations and brilliant special features created for the classic series Blu-Ray and DVD range!

We are very pleased to welcome back stand-up comedian SAM MICHAEL as our compere, Billy Garatt-John and Matthew Toffolo aka the popular Doctor Who vloggers THE REVIEW OF DEATH, who will be marking their live debut in Cardiff – home of twenty-first century Doctor Who – by discussing the Russell T Davies era of Doctor Who.

BAFTA-nominated documentary maker CHRIS CHAPMAN returns with another of his popular presentations detailing his work as a director and producer of special features for the ‘Doctor Who: The Collection’ Blu-ray series.

We’ll also be hearing from ED STRADLING, producer of several 2|entertain Doctor Who documentaries released on DVD such as Putting The Shock Into Earthshock, The Last Chance Saloon, Trials and Tribulations, Come In Number Five, The Seven Year Hitch and Serial Killers.

Also making an appearance is animator and graphic designer ROB RITCHIE, the creative force behind the animations of missing stories THE POWER OF THE DALEKS and THE MACRA TERROR, and the incomplete Tom Baker epic SHADA written by Douglas Adams.

Rob will be joined by GARY RUSSELL, who will be chatting about his time as a producer for Australian animation house Planet 55′. Planet 55 animated the missing episodes of the Doctor Who serials THE TENTH PLANET and THE MOONBASE for DVD release. They also co-animated the missing episodes of the Doctor Who serial THE REIGN OF TERROR with Big Finish Productions. We’re delighted to welcome Gary back after his well-received appearance at We Are Cult’s BRISTOL MEET in summer 2019.

Last but not least, we round things off with sketches from impressionists WE SOUND FAMILIAR, whose founder member CHRIS WALKER-THOMSON is best known for his uncanny Patrick Troughton and who recently made his BIG FINISH debut in ‘The Fourth Doctor Comic Strip Adaptations’.
