When our beloved Matt Smith announced he was leaving Doctor Who there was mass speculation on who would replace him. Many suggested that it was time for a female doctor to hit out screens! While this didn’t happen, a group of friends from America created a spectacular crossplay group of all the doctors which showcased at Planet Comicon!
It all began in March 2012 when Hilary (Third Doctor) attended a small convention in Kansas with her sister, cosplaying the Fourth and Fifth Doctor. The pair found other Whovians and joined the Kansas City Timelords Society. They began discussing their favourite show and cosplay, when the fateful words were uttered, “Wouldn’t it be cool if you had a group of all eleven female Doctors?” Hilary accepted the challenge and quickly began the search for recruits and sourcing materials for the cosplays.
Hilary comments on the experience of forming the group and producing the cosplays, “We found each other through a convention and a love of Doctor Who. These costumes, made with discount upholstery fabric, a low-end sewing machine, and a lot of love, has brought us together. My world has changed in ways I could never have imagined. When you’ve got friends to support you, “I think I can do this” becomes “Look what we did together.”
