‘Look out I’m coming to get you…’ says award winning actress Eve Myles. Torchwood’s Gwen Cooper will appear at SFW 7 alongside her Torchwood onscreen husband Rhys Williams portrayed by Kai Owen.
SFW, originally known as the Sci Fi Weekender and now in its 7th year, will bring like-minded people together for a weekend to fully immerse themselves in a sci-fi & fantasy culture. The weekend will play host to some of the world’s most popular science fiction and fantasy films and TV-shows.

The film revolves around the leadership trials of the Varosha Tribe. Eiren, Ares and Thade are all in line to lead the next generation of their people. They journey out of the safety of their home towards a dark forest miles away where tradition dictates a new leader will be chosen. Only one of them will return.
We recently had the pleasure of talking to the delightful Sophie Aldred and the Seventh Doctor himself, Sylvester McCoy at this year's Sci Fi Weekender.
We talk about how Sophie came to play the iconic role of Ace, her thoughts on a slightly darker doctor, and a truly impressive Ace/Tree Fu Tom mash up.
Sylvester gives an insight into his unique style of convention Q&A's, his influence on the direction of Doctor Who, The Five-Ish Doctors reboot and also commits his 5 films to our list.
