An actor best known for his roles in Doctor Who and Doc Martin will appear at the third annual Wyntercon convention later this year.

Ian McNeice, who had a recurring role as Winston Churchill in Doctor Who, is among the first guests to confirm they will attend the convention.

A veteran character actor, McNeice has appeared in more than 90 films and TV shows during his career including Bridget Jones’ Diary and Second World War drama Valkyrie.

His television appearances include all seven series of Doc Martin, in which he plays Bert Large, and as the newsreader in the historic epic, Rome.

He join a growing list of confirmed guests including fellow Doctor Who cast Sophie Aldred, Julian Seager and Simon Fisher-Baker.

The convention returns to Eastbourne Winter Garden on October 1 and 2.
