Panel: Doctor Who -- The Un-Sci-Fi

It's one of the most popular sci-fi series in the world... but Doctor Who in itself isn't technically science fiction! Learn about what makes science fiction according to the early founders of the genre, why Who breaks that mold, and explore those episodes when it IS sci-fi.

This panel, made primarily for sci-fi cons with a literary and educational bent, covers the meaning of 'science fiction' in its purest form, as well as a variety of other genres. Presented by (Re)Generation Who blogger and host Kara Dennison, it aims to help people comprehend Doctor Who's variety of writing styles and help grow an appreciation for it for the multi-genre series it truly is.

The panel is appropriate for all ages, but will likely resonate most with audiences teen and up. The panel is presented solo, with time for questions at the end.

Time: 50 minutes
Requirements: None.
