Even with Christopher Lee and Gil Gerard packing in many of the 4,000 attendees, the suprise hit of the Los Angeles Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Convention was Dr. Who. The con, held this spring at L.A.'s Marriott Hotel, boasted three film rooms, one of them designated the Dr. Who Theater, in which a video projector continuously played full-length, multi-part adventures (without commercials) from the British SF series— and filled the room to the walls. The Doctor's drawing power with L.A. fans is particularly notable in light of the fact that the syndicated series is seen 10 times per week in L.A. in the early evening hours, and the 98 episodes now in syndication are being seen for the third time over KBSC-TV.

In contrast, the New York fans are having acute attacks of Who-hunger, as New York's WOR-TV has repeatedly pre-empted the once-weekly airing of the program in favor of Mets baseball games. And a losing season, to boot.
