Television sci-fi royalty will be materialising in Great Yarmouth this weekend when two Doctor Who stars step out of the Tardis onto the town's racecourse.
On Saturday and Sunday Colin Baker, who played the sixth Doctor, will be appearing at the Great Yarmouth Comic Con at the racecourse.
And to help the Time Lord fight off any invading daleks and cybermen, the Doctor's brave companion Peri, Nicola Bryant, will also be appearing at the convention.
Between 1984 and 1986 the pair battled Daleks and their mad genius creator Davros, cybermen, Sontarans and The Rani, an evil Time Lord.
Organiser Philip Welsby said: "Whovians will love Great Yarmouth Comic Con 2022.
"We have the sixth Doctor and his companion Peri attending. And to top it off we have some awesome props.
"Have your photo taken inside and outside a Tardis and watch out for the Daleks invading the venue."
The two-day convention also features Christopher Biggins, famous for his roles in Porridge, I Claudius and the Rocky Horror Picture Show and being a pantomime stalwart.
