Dr Who star in town for Armageddon

One time Dr Who star Paul McGann is in town for Armageddon, the pop culture expo to be held in Auckland over the weekend.

Stuff.co.nz caught up with McGann before the event, and he admitted his fans could sometimes be a little over the top.

"Dr Who fans tend to clamour in my royal presence and shake a bit, and get a little bit sweaty," he said.

Armageddon will also feature Terminator star Michael Biehn, Futurama's John DiMaggio and Survivor's Jonny Fairplay.

It is being held at the ASB Showgrounds from October 23-25.
