The crowds were out in Daventry town centre on Thursday last week to meet a TV legend.
Colin Baker, best known for playing the sixth incarnation of the Doctor on the BBC’s Doctor Who, was at Kuni’s Coffee and Comics in Bowen Square in the evening for a signing.
Groups of fans gathered outside the shop well before the event began, many carrying books, DVDs, magazines, and other items featuring the Doctor for him to sign.
The event was organised by Brian Cooney, who owns the cafe.
He said: “For people who can’t get along to the big conventions, this gives them the chance to meet some of the bigger stars.
“After all Colin is only one of 13 people ever to play the doctor.”
