LOVE IN SPACE AND TIME
A DOCTOR WHO WEDDING EVENT
Who would ever consider traveling all the way to London not just to get
but to do it on TV at an all Doctor Who themed ceremony, shared with 49 other
couples? Amanda and Brandon of course,
they jumped at the chance the second
they heard about it.
Doctor Who was very important to them, Brandon had watched it
as a child and,
though Amanda didn't become a fan until a few years ago, she helped to found the
Doctor Who Society of Canada.
They both watched it the whole time Amanda was
pregnant with their son, from Eccelson on through Smith. Once James
(without a Time Head), they went to conventions as a family and showed off their
son cosplaying as the Doctor and Captian
Jack Harkness. They have met John
Barrowman, Colin Baker, Fraiser Hines, and hope to add many more in the future.
both love lots of different shows and genres, but Doctor Who is first and
foremost of all of them for us both", Amanda proudly declared
These two have wanted to go to England for years and now they have their chance.
On November 24, 2013 Amanda
and Brandon hope to make a once in a lifetime trip to London to be a part of the 50th Anniversary Celebrations of Doctor Who.
They will be visiting Cardiff (home of the Doctor Who Experience), ExCel London (the Official 50th Anniversary Doctor Who Experience)
and most of importantly of all, they will be joining 49 other couples at a one of a kind wedding ceremony which will be completely
Doctor Who themed and televised across the world.
The only hitch with getting hitched is raising the finances to pay
for such a trip. The wedding event is 2000 pounds (U.K) alone, not including flight and only 2 days accomidation in London.
Amanda and Brandon are hoping for the some help from all the double Whovian hearts across Canada to make their life long dreams

FAN EXPO TAKES A TRIP IN OUR TARDIS
DOCTOR WHO SOCIETY JUST AS BIG ON THE OUTSIDE
The DWSC went full out this year at Fan
Expo in Toronto. We had our largest display to date plus panels, a charity photo booth, cosplay photo ops, an after party
and an attempt at a Guinness World Record.
The DWSC and Rowan Photography are very pleased to announce that with your
generous donations, we raised over $3,000 for Toronto's SickKids Foundation. Thank you to Rowan Photography Studio for providingtheir services for the weekend and to the cosplayers, who much like a real Time Lord, appeared out of the vortex and donated
their services! And a special THANK YOU to all of our attendees for making a donation to SickKids!! Visit www.sickkids.ca tofind out how you can make a difference in the life of a sick child.
also took on the very daunting task of EXTERMINATING the Guinness World Record for the Largest Gathering of Daleks. As the doors opened
to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, it became quickly apparent to our organizers that we were going to break the 96 Daleks mark
and unofficially break the record. Despite a few delays, in the end we well exceeded our goal and expectations in reaching 157 Daleks,
an unofficial new World Record! The Daleks had to gather together in a room for over 10 minutes, during which time we were delighted
to have the Sixth Doctor himself, Colin Baker be our Official Expert Witness! Thank you to Colin for being a gracious host and truly
A special Thank You to www.pixelbarrel.com/ for providing all of the prizes given out at the gathering, including
a $100 gift certificate, and to tcon.ca/reversedpolarity/ - Canada's 50th Anniversary Convention, for donating a family pass to the
best Family of Daleks! Our submission to Guinness is well underway and we hope to have an official statement soon but the process
can take at least 12 weeks. For all of our participating Daleks, gift packs will be mailed out. Thank you again to all who participated
and be sure to tune in to InnerSpace weeknights at 6pm (ET) for coverage and updates on the event - www.space.ca/InnerSPACE.aspx.
The 2013 Fan Expo was our most successful outing to date, with the largest booth ever given to a community group. Our Canadian Dalek
Invasion Force has risen in numbers with Daleks Dreadnaught, Auric, Simon, Clifton, Souffle, Harper, Aleron, Drax, Lekda and Ironside
EXTERMINATING everyone who did not attend their panels and the Gathering of the Daleks. We also added several new display pieces to
our exhibit with a CyberShade, Weeping Angel, Silence, full sized TARDIS Console and, this year's centre piece, a 1963 TARDIS. We
look forward to growing again next year with your continued support!
