Really fascinating, this, and something that I suspect hasn't been seen for a very long time.  It's a profile of William Hartnell from an edition of The Picturegoer in 1950.  Prophetic, too:  Hartnell complains, 'I'm tired of being the eternal tough guy of British films...  I'm certain picturegoers are sick and tired of seeing me pull horrid faces before the cameras, and if I don't soon change my style I shall find myself a has-been!'  He goes on to say he wants to do something different, especially comedy, and he's in a rut of playing supporting rather than leading characters.

The article concludes: 'With versatile actors such a rarity in British films, Billy Hartnell must come into his own.  It's his right reward.'

And we all know what happened, thirteen years later...

This is a photocopy.  I'm selling it for £1, plus postage, to raise money for Bedford Foodbank; I'm a volunteer with them.  So it's 'new' in that it's a new photocopy, even though it's of a 64 year old article.
If you buy one:  thank you very, very much indeed.

Postage to Europe (outside the UK):  the overseas postage price quoted is for outside Europe; Europe itself is much cheaper.  I'll refund the difference through PayPal -- or please ask me for an invoice if you prefer.

Tickets are now available for
our charity Doctor Who convention in Bedford:
Bedford Who Charity Con
Saturday 11th April 2015.

All the profits from this event will go to Bedford Foodbank,
providing emergency food for local people in crisis.

Bedford is just over 50 miles North of London, easily accessible by train from London St Pancras (journeys take less than an hour) or via the M1 or A1. The event is being held in The King's House, a new conference centre in the South of Bedford, on Ampthill Road. 

We're looking forward to welcoming you -- and some wonderful guests from the cast and crew of Doctor Who

Confirmed guests so far:  author Paul Cornell (writer of the TV episodes Father's Day, Human Nature / The Family of Blood); Mike Tucker (BAFTA award winning VFX designer from the original series to today); Anneke Wills (Polly); Sophie Aldred (Ace); Nicola Bryant (Peri); John Leeson (K9); and Terry Molloy, who played Davros in all the 1980 Dalek stories.  Ailsa Berk, the choreographer for Doctor Who, is also coming; she teaches movement to the actors playing the aliens and she's agreed to lead a workshop - optional, for attendees! - on alien movement.  So, if you want to learn how to stomp like a Cyberman, lollop like a scarecrow, or how to frighten the neighbours by adopting Weeping Angel poses, then this is for you!

Bedford Who Charity Con, as you might guess, is a charity convention.  All the profits are going to Bedford Foodbank, one of a national network of foodbanks affiliated to the Trussel Trust.  The convention organisers make no money from this; once our costs are covered, everything else goes to the charity.  Bedford Foodbank is supported by local churches and the local humanist association; it provides emergency food for local people in crisis.  If you'd like to come to the convention, we'd be really pleased to see you - and thank you for helping to support the Foodbank's vital work.

All guests appear subject to their work commitments.  This is usual for Doctor Who conventions.  It rarely happens that people have to cancel, but it does occasionally!
