Hello everyone! 🙂
Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!
It’s Day 16 of ‘Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2019’.
I’m pleased and amazed that I’ve met this ‘Doctor Who’ star at more than one convention! 😀
I first met Janet Fielding at the ‘Project Motor Mouth 2’ convention in Slough, August 2013 where there were a lot of companions in attendance as well as Peter Davison. 😀 I had a nice friendly first encounter with Janet where she signed my original DVD cover for ‘The Visitation’ and my CD cover for ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ from the ‘Destiny of the Doctor’ series. She said, “Hiya Tim!” on our first meeting.
Janet Fielding is well-known for playing Tegan Jovanka in ‘Doctor Who’. She first met Tom Baker’s Doctor before becoming a companion to Peter Davison’s Doctor in the series. Janet has done plenty of ‘Doctor Who’ audios playing Tegan and starring alongside Peter Davison, Sarah Sutton, Mark Strickson and Matthew Waterhouse. I’m very pleased that Janet has reprised her role of Tegan in recent years.
As well as ‘Project Motor Mouth 2’, I’ve also seen Janet at other conventions including ‘Dimensions 2013’, Newcastle, October 2013; ‘Big Finish Day 6’ in Slough, January 2015; ‘MCM Birmingham Comic Con’ in November 2017; the ‘Folkestone Film, TV and Comic Con’ in May 2018 and ‘Science of the Time Lords’ in Leicester, January 2019. Seeing Janet Fielding at those events has been pretty pleasant.
Other items Janet has signed for me at conventions include my DVD covers for ‘Earthshock’; ‘The Five Doctors’ and ‘Resurrection of the Daleks’ as well as my CD covers for ‘The Fifth Doctor Box Set’; ‘Cold Fusion’; ‘The Star Men’; ‘The Contingency Club’; ‘Zaltys’; ‘Kingdom of Lies’; ‘Ghost Walk’ and ‘Serpent In The Silver Mask’. I’ve also had my copy of the ‘Cold Fusion’ book signed by Janet at a convention. 🙂
I’m glad I’ve had photos with Janet as well as a group photo with Janet, Sarah and Peter at conventions. I’ve enjoyed chatting to Janet and sharing how much I’ve enjoyed her as Tegan in ‘Doctor Who’. I even recorded a conversation with Janet at the Folkestone comic con which is a huge achievement for me.
Thanks for reading!
Bye for now!
