In this particular — the worst — timeline, it looks as if Rose Tyler will not be appearing at Orlando's MegaCon this summer after all.
Tucked into the bottom of an official announcement post on Wednesday confirming Flash
actress Danielle Panabaker
(Killer Frost) as a guest was an apologetic addendum that Doctor Who
actress Billie Piper would not be attending August's MegaCon as previously announced.
No official reason was given beyond "Billie Piper has canceled her appearance at the show," but we'd have to assume it's because a) a Dalek incursion needs to be put down somewhere or maybe, just maybe, it's something to do with b) Florida's exploding COVID numbers
. Either way, it's a bummer.
Neither Piper's Instagram or Twitter
have been updated with any announcements on her end as to reasons for dropping off the celebrity guest lineup.
As of this writing, Doctor Who
's Christopher Eccleston is still confirmed as a MegaCon guest. SNL
vet Jon Lovitz has also been added as a guest.
MegaCon happens on Aug. 12-15 at the usual location of the Orange County Convention Center. Tickets are on sale now.
