Waris Hussein joins the L.I. Who guest line-up!

LIWho3.jpg

The very special guest of honor at L.I. Who will connect the convention with the beginning of Doctor Who history fifty years ago. It is the legendary director of the first episode "An Unearthly Child" and the missing historical classic "Marco Polo". 

He is the subject of the upcoming BBC America co-production "An Adventure in Space and Time" written by Mark Gatiss. The drama chronicles the early days of making Doctor Who. 

In his long career, Waris has worked with Hollywood legends like Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, and Bette Davis. He is a renowned storyteller and he makes a rare convention appearance at L.I. Who to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.

Happy Birthday, Waris Hussein

Waris Hussein, the first director of Doctor Who (he had directed An Unearthly Child back in 1963) turned 73 today. Though you would never guess it if you spent some time with him as he comes across as someone much younger. We had the honour and privilege of spending a little time with him in Los Angeles last February when we introduced him as our special surprise guest in our Doctor Who: Podshock live show on stage at Gallifrey One. He is charming and intelligent.

A couple weeks ago for the 48th anniversary of Doctor Who I once again watched An Unearthly Child (Part One) as I do traditionally on the anniversary. Despite its age, it never gets old.

Happy Birthday, Waris!
