ROANOKE, Va. — Mysticon 2013 held it's opening ceremonies Friday evening at the Holiday Inn Tanglewood.
The convention features dealers, game rooms, artists, and celebrities all from the sci-fi and fantasy genre.
This year's guest of honor is Peter Davison, known for his role as the fifth "Doctor" in the Doctor Who series in the early 80s.
He spoke tonight about the resurgance in popularity of the show.
"I always knew that when it went off the air it would at some point come back. And I think it's come back with a vengence. You know I love it. I've got two boys, so I still watch it now." said Davison.
The convention continues on Saturday.
