Even more fortunately the weather improved for Saturday so the majority of the attendees made it, along with all the guests with the exception of poor John Leeson who found himself stuck in Hamburg, due to strike action rather than foul weather. Full marks also go to Colin Baker, who was rehearsing in Lincoln in the morning due to commitments he had to his touring play (The Lady in White), but still came and signed for everyone when the easy option would have been to have cried off.
As crew I had a delightful time in the morning as PA for Simon Fisher-Becker (Dorium in the previous series), and the line up of Doctors was quite an event, with Doctors 5, 7, 8 & 10 on stage together. A good sum was raised in the auction for the MotorHouse project (*) - a project to renovate West Cliff Hall in Ramsgate being championed by Janet Fielding as part of her recovery therapy. It seems to be working as Janet was in fine form Saturday.
For more details of the project and to donate direct you can visit the project's website:
There is a second event planned for August, this time driven by companions rather than Doctors, I'm sure it will be a great event and there are still a few tickets left. For more details visit...
(*) Motorhouse is the project to renovate West Cliff Hall in Ramsgate, MotorMouth is the name for the fundraising done in Janet's name, as Tegan was known as 'The Mouth on Legs' during her time in Doctor Who.
