Hoffman Estates residents who have a love of science fiction won't want to miss a fantasy weekend with the promise of a visit from Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant from "Doctor Who."

Chris Jury from "Lovejoy" also promises to visit "Visions '92," the third annual convention that delves into television science fiction.

The convention will begin at 10a.m. Friday, Nov. 27, and close at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 29, in the Ramada Hotel O'Hare in Rosemont.

Stars from "Blakes 7," "Red Dwarf," "Robin of Sherwood" and "Mystery Science Theater 3000" will be on hand to sign autographs, participate in panel discussions and perform in a celebrity variety show. The winners of a raffle will be guests of the stars at a brunch on Sunday, Nov. 29.

A charity auction will be held in the afternoon on Saturday, Nov. 28, with some of the celebrities acting as auctioneers. Lambs Farm, a Libertyville residence and training facility for the mentally and physically handicapped, will receive part of the proceeds. Tickets may be purchased at the door for the whole convention or for one day. Prices range from $20 (for the variety show only) to $55 for the whole thing. Further information may be obtained by calling 405 WHO-1.
