The DWCA is delighted to be hosting Katy Manning, best known to Doctor Who fans as Third Doctor companion Jo Grant, for a special one-day event in Sydney.
Katy will be regaling us with tales of a multifaceted performance career that has spanned both decades and continents. She has been playing Jo Grant (later Jo Jones) for over 45 years, originally alongside Jon Pertwee’s Third Doctor and these days on audio for Big Finish Productions. Katy is also well known for her audio work playing the enigmatic and charismatic Iris Wildthyme, an old associate of the Doctor’s who travels around time and space in a double-decker bus that is smaller on the inside…
Tickets for this event include a token for a complimentary autograph from Katy, as well as automatic entry into the club’s lucky door prize draw. Attendees will also have the chance to test their Doctor Who knowledge in the club’s Mastermind competition.

Plus bonus features include interviews with Nicola Bryant, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy as well as a pin-up gallery covering the extensive history of DWCA Publishing.

The DWCA is pleased to announce that select editions of our club fanzine, Data Extract, are now available through our Online Shop.
Published continuously since 1980, Data Extract (DE) has grown from a two-page newsletter into a fully fledged fanzine, with articles, interviews, art and more besides. Earlier this year, the first 100 issues of the publication were collected together in one hardcover volume from the first time – from the heady days of the past from Tom Baker’s departure to the end of the classic era and into the Wilderness Years.
Now, single issues of DE from 2014 to 2016 are also available for purchase, giving both newer members and curious bystanders the chance to relive some of the recent history of the Whoniverse – from the aftermath of the 50th anniversary to the casting of Pearl Mackie as Bill Potts. Featuring celebrity interviews, event recounts, reviews and fan fiction – including the first stories in an ongoing series featuring original companion Eleanor Chaplette – each issue is chock full of high-quality content written by fans, for fans.
Limited issues of Data Extract #223 to #231 are available here while stocks last. The latest issue, #236, was released in late September and is currently available exclusively to members. To sign up as a member, visit http://dwca.org.au/membership/
