The Doctor Who spin-off ‘Wartime‘ is to be released on DVD.
Wartime is the title of a short science fiction film, produced direct-to-video in 1987. It was the first professionally produced, authorised independent spin-off of the long-running TV series Doctor Who, and the only such production to be made while the originating TV series was still on the air (it ended in 1989).
GeekedFest is a brand new Film & Comic convention in it’s first year which was held at the Newport Centre, South Wales on August 8th & 9th.
The idea came from some local comic book fans who wanted to see an event in their area and decided to make it happen; headed up by Shane Richard Jordan (owner of the nearby Sin City Comics in Cwmbran) & Chris Muscat.
