Gallifrey One – February 16 – 18, 2018
It’s Gallifrey One, the world’s largest and longest running annual fan-run Doctor Who convention. Sci-Fi fans get your Who On with costumes, make-up, hats, scarves and accessories for The 29th Annual North American Dr. Who Celebration at the Los Angeles Marriott Hotel at LAX.
Gallifrey One is an annual North American science fiction convention focusing primarily on the British television series Doctor Who and its spinoffs, Torchwood, K-9, The Sarah Jane Adventures, with an additional emphasis on British and American science fiction television media, held each February in Los Angeles. Sponsored by Gallifrey One Conventions and the Institute for Specialized Literature (ISL) Inc., a California not-for-profit organization, Gallifrey One has been held every year since 1990 in the greater Los Angeles area and has featured guests from a variety of genre television programs including Babylon 5, Star Trek, Alien Nation, Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Battlestar Galactica.
Founded in 1989 by active fans in local Los Angeles science fiction fandom, Gallifrey One Conventions has run an event every year since 1990 (all but the first two occurring in February), and has over time become one of the world’s most popular fan-run themed events devoted to the Doctor Who classic and new television series, and its spinoffs, Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures.
Gallifrey One is the formal name of the convention; the event has always featured the full name of the event, along with a play on the iteration as drawn from popular media, such as “Gallifrey One Across the Eighth Dimension” (from a title of Buckaroo Banzai, “The Tenth Planet of Gallifrey One” (a Doctor Who reference), and “Gallifrey One’s Fifteen Minutes of Fame” (a reference to the phrase coined by Andy Warhol.
