Silver and orange
Guest of honour at the DWCA meeting was Englishman David Banks, who played the Cyberleader in four (original series) "Doctor Who" stories and has written two books about the Cybermen. When his missus was granted a six-week artist's residency in Oz, he decided to end a decade-long retirement from fandom and attend a few gatherings. I'm very glad 'cos he was an excellent orator who (a) clearly remembered the shows he'd done, and (b) had intelligent things to say about them. DB also recalled his fleeting turn as the Doc in the theatrical production "The Ultimate Adventure", replacing Jon Pertwee who'd suffered a minor breakdown. Post-Q&A, I got him to autograph my "Earthshock" DVD, plus a head shot for a Cyber-afficionado who couldn't be present.
