Being Human, Doctor Who, Primeval Guests Announced For KAPOW!

Acclaimed Doctor Who scriptwriter (“Rise Of The Cybermen”, “The Age Of Steel”, “The Girl Who Waited”) and writer/creator of hit Comedy Central sitcom Threesome Tom MacRae and actor Russell Tovey (Being Human, Sherlock) come to Kapow! to talk about the relationship between writing sci-fi drama and television comedy by asking the question: how much is creating a joke like constructing a high concept narrative?

Joining them on the panel will be stars of the sitcom Adam Garcia (Threesome, House), actress and comedy writer Lucy Brown (Primeval) and comedian Tom Allen.

In addition to comic-book panels with Marvel, DC, Image and Millarworld, other events taking place include An Audience with Nick Frost, Noel Clarke Q&A with exclusive footage from Storage 24, the creative team behind Batman: Arkham City from Rocksteady Studios, British writer and director Gareth Evans talking The Raid, two of Britain’s biggest comedians as Jimmy Carr interviews Frankie Boyle live about his love of geek culture, plus the much-loved TV personality and comic-book writer Jonathan Ross talking America’s Got Powers.

Live interviews with huge film, TV and comic stars will be taking place all weekend at the Total Film, SFX and Comic Heroes stage, plus the massive cosplay competition.
