Coverage of the 1982 Chicago Doctor Who Convention

Here we are, 30 years later and the world is still talking about Doctor Who. But in 1982, even though Doctor Who, had been out for years and had its fans, it was not as close to being a household world in the United States as it is now. So it is interesting to hear and see US fan reaction to the show and how they came to find the good Doctor.

According to the video uploader, Transdiffusion, this program comes from the BBC’s Did You See? and the footage was shot by a US PBS affiliate. It is a wonderful piece of Doctor Who history. Amazing upload.
