I also have The Daily Telegraph
for the same date; it, too, has a front page article and inside feature. Happy to combine postage.
The scan hasn't quite worked; rest assured that the actual copy looks much better!Postage to Europe (outside the UK):

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

We're looking forward to welcoming you -- and some wonderful guests from the cast and crew of Doctor Who.
It's early days yet but we'll be updating our eBay listing constantly (please go to it on the link below),

happening, so you can put it in your diary!
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); and Terry Molloy, who played Davros in all the 1980 Dalek stories.

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

Doctor Who has been a television institution for fifty years and is the longest running science fiction series in the world.
Beginning as a filler between Grandstand and Juke Box Jury, it was
only expected to last for thirteen episodes. It soon became a national
and international smash hit and is now the BBC’s flagship drama
Fifty Years in Time and Space tells the story of Doctor Who from 1963
to 2013, covering the action on screen and behind the scenes.
Whether you’re a serious fan or new to the series, travel with the
Doctor through half a century of change in British culture. Battle the
Daleks, the Cybermen, the Master, and the Weeping Angels! Find out about
the Doctor’s name; regeneration; the series’ representations of the
Second World War and the Cold War; the cancellation crises of 1985 and
1989; the TV movie; the Dalek films of the 1960s and Doctor Who’s
triumphant resurrection in 2005.
Board the TARDIS and relive fifty years of a television legend!
The author: Frank Danes studied English and
American Literature at the University of Kent. He is the author of
Victorian Literature (Cambridge University Press)
and is Head of English at King’s Ely in Cambridgeshire. His favourite
Doctors are Patrick Troughton, Matt Smith and Tom Baker.
This book aims to be a guide to fifty years of the series for those
who like Doctor Who and want to learn more about it. It aims to be of
interest to readers who enjoy the post 2005 revival and want to know
more about the original series. I also hope it will be of interest to
the die hard, knowledgeable fans who, perhaps lifelong fans like me,
devour anything about Doctor Who that they can get their hands on. It
is inevitably a personal reading of the series and is coloured by my own
critical preferences: any book about the programme which doesn’t
demonstrate the author’s own views would, I think, be very dull.
I was born in 1965 – on a Saturday, in fact, and just in time to
watch ‘Galaxy Four’ episode two. Some of my earliest memories are of
watching the series. I must have seen ‘Seeds of Death’ (1968) and ‘The
Evil of the Daleks’ (1967), although I have no memory of them, as I
thought the Silurians in ‘Doctor Who and the Silurians’ (1970) were Ice
Warriors and I was not only able to remember the Daleks when they
reappeared in ‘Day of the Daleks’ (1972) but was able to correct a
nursery worker at my pre-school when she erroneously called the Marx toy
Dalek, which graced our playgroup, ‘a robot’. My brother and I went
down the road to watch the programme in colour in the early seventies,
at a time when a colour television cost something in the region of £2000
in today’s money; we would return to tell our father, who watched in
black and white, what colour the monsters were (usually green). I
co-edited a fanzine in the 1980s, did some professional writing, got a
degree in English and American Literature and became a secondary school
English teacher. I’ve always been a Doctor Who fan even as I have
become (in script editor Terrance Dicks’ words) older, fatter, greyer,
but not noticeably wiser.
Review from Amazon (and it's cheaper if you buy it from me on eBay!):I thoroughly enjoyed this book: it is witty and amusing and contains
every factoid about Dr Who and its creation, cast and crew, plots and
pilots, myths and mayhem- a veritable compendium of time and space!
What's brilliant about it is the style of writing; it would be easy for a
book so crammed full of Dr Who knowledge to become dry and boring or
too geeky (we'd all want it a little geeky!) and fanatical but instead
of backing away from the overly avid fan in the pub wanting to show you
their sonic screwdriver, you are carried along by a friendly
storyteller wanting to share their excitement about a topic they love.
It's so funny and interesting that I will even forgive the author for
having the wrong opinion as to who is the best Doctor. Perfect for both
the fan (or long suffering spouse of fan) and novice alike.
