Talk on cult of Doctor Who and theatre workshops lined-up for Festival of Learning   2 comments

Next month sees a host of free arts and entertainment events during Bournemouth Universities’ Festival of Learning.

Theatre productions, flash fiction competitions and writing workshops are among the activities on offer from Monday, June 9 to Sunday, June 15.

These include talks explor-ing why Doctor Who has become such a cultural phenomenon, performances of popular theatre productions, and workshops to give those who’ve always wanted to write a novel the skills and confidence to get started.

John Foster, a BAFTA-winning writer and screen-writer-in-residence at Bourne-mouth University, is running free workshops with his theatre production company Doppelganger Dialogues during the event.

There will also be two performances of John’s play The Murder Wife, about a suburban housewife who finds out she’s married to a serial killer.

They will take place at BU’s Talbot Campus and The Winchester pub in Bourne-mouth, and will be followed by question and answer sessions with the cast and crew.

“Although we are a fringe theatre company, we produce highly charged dramatic theatre and wish to reach a popular audience; we are not obscurest but wish to engage and communicate with aud-iences,” said John.

“In last year’s festival, we presented a play called Five Go Killing which was a sell-out and we hope to repeat the same this year.

“This is exciting dramatic theatre which I am sure will engage people as it did last year.”

Festival of Learning events are open to all and take place at the university’s Talbot and Lansdowne campuses, as well as at locations across Dorset.

Doctor Who writer set to give talk at Airdrie library   Leave a comment

Terrance, who wrote popular books on the Time Lord’s exploits and commissioned scripts for the show, will be giving a talk at Airdrie library.

The writer’s appearance is part of a “geek night” which includes gaming workshops, a quiz and a chance to view the new full moon through the library observatory.

But the real star of the evening is Terrance who’s had a huge influence on Doctor Who fans and the current team of writers on the hit BBC show.

Kenny Smith, writer of a Doctor Who audio companion, said: “Terrance Dicks virtually taught a whole generation of Doctor Who fans to read.

“In the 1970s and 80s, before the release of old Doctor Who episodes on video and DVD, the only way fans had to learn about old stories was through the novelisations, published by Target Books.

“Terrance always wrote his novelisations in plain and simple English – and it was ideal for young fans as it encouraged them to read and write.

“Even now, the writers on TV Doctor Who today acknowledge the huge impact Terrance has had on their own writing.

“It shouldn’t be forgotten that he was also the man who commissioned scripts throughout the late Patrick Troughton era, and throughout Jon Pertwee’s time as the Doctor, and also wrote Tom Baker’s first Doctor Who adventure.

“He was also the man who wrote The Five Doctors, the show’s 20th anniversary special, and has continued to write original Doctor Who novels and audios for many years.”

The event takes place on Wednesday, May 14 at 7pm.

Book a place by calling Airdrie Library on 01236 758070 or emailing airdrielibrary@culturenl.co.uk

Tickets cost £2 but are free for under 16s.

This Weekend’s Doctor Who Proms   Leave a comment

This year’s two Doctor Who Proms are happening this weekend but if you don’t have a ticket – don’t worry!

Both concerts will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 and we’ll be bringing you photos and reports from the Royal Albert Hall where as usual, the Proms are being staged.

The first Doctor Who Prom kicks off tomorrow (Saturday) at 7.30pm and is due to finish at approximately 9.45pm. If that’s a little late for you, BBC iPlayer users can catch the concert online for seven days afterwards and don’t forget Sunday’s Doctor Who Prom, which runs from 10.30am to 12.45pm, will also be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.

The concerts will feature special guests from the world of Doctor Who – including Matt Smith himself – plus a host of monsters from the show. The music will be provided by the London Philharmonic Choir and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by Ben Foster.

As well as showcasing Murray Gold’s brilliant music from the past eight years, the concerts journey back to the early days of Doctor Who and the ground-breaking work of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. In addition to this, audiences will be treated to some classical favourites including the Habanera from Bizet’s Carmen, which viewers may recall featured in Asylum of the Daleks, and Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor which the Doctor himself played part of during Attack of the Cybermen!

There’s more information online about Saturday’s Doctor Who Prom and Sunday’s Doctor Who Prom or you can also visit the home of the BBC Proms, 2013.

We can confirm that ‘Promming’ tickets are available for all BBC Proms, including the Doctor Who Proms. These are sold shortly before the event but please note there is no guarantee of success in obtaining these tickets. The BBC Proms site has more information about Promming.
