The big announcement that shook the Denver area Whovians was that none other than Amy Pond herself, Karen Gillan, is coming to Denver Comic Con. In 2010 this beautiful and talented actress became the very popular companion to the eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith. Karen went on to appear in series six and seven of Doctor Who. Movie and TV fans have been seeing Gillan in multiple high profile projects such as her role in the horror film Oculus alongside co-star Katee Sackhoff. She is soon to be seen in her role as Nebula in the upcoming summer blockbuster Guardians of The Galaxy. Then to wrap up her incredibly successful year she will be starring on ABC’s sitcom Selfie this fall.
Already on its third successful year, Denver Comic Con will be held at the Convention Center Denver Comic Con this June 13 - 15, 2014. With such hot Doctor Who guests headed to Denver, it will be somewhat of a convention within a convention. Joining Karen Gillan will be the fifth Doctor, Peter Davison and the seventh doctor, Sylvester McCoy. No doubt the convention center will be teaming with Doctor Who themed cosplay outfits including doctors, companions, and villains. DCC’s Doctor Who programming will include over 25 hours of amazing panel sessions with celebs, writers, and crew members. This does not even count the standing-room only Q&A sessions in the convention center’s massive Main Events Halls.
Big names in the biz as well as fans will all come together to raise funds for the non-profit organization Comic Book Classroom. This charity is a Non-profit organization created for low income schools and communities to help children with reading and writing difficulties.
