Prolific British composer Dominic Glynn, who revitalized Doctor Who’s classic theme for “Sixth Doctor” Colin Baker in 1986 and scored episodes of the series until its classic run ended in 1989, will be a headliner at Con Kasterborous 2018. The premiere southern Doctor Who convention is set for June 9-10, 2018, at the Westin in Huntsville, Alabama.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dominic Glynn to Huntsville for our seventh annual con,” said organizer Bonnie Auten, who created the event in 2012. “Dominic has been on our radar for ages, and we’re thrilled the stars have finally aligned to welcome him into the Con K family!”

Glynn was among the rare composers tapped to rearrange the iconic Doctor Who theme created in 1963 by Ron Grainer and Delia Derbyshire. His version, used on TV during Season 23, remains the Sixth Doctor’s signature theme in new audios from Big Finish Productions. Glynn went on to compose incidental music for the Doctor Who TV episodes “The Mysterious Planet,” “The Ultimate Foe,” “Dragonfire,” “The Happiness Patrol” and “Survival.”

A regular writer for Universal Music Publishing Group and other production music libraries, Glynn’s composing credits range from the theme to the hit Dutch TV thriller “Vuurzee” to the interstitial Adult Swim “bumps” on the Cartoon Network’s late-night programming block. His work has appeared in episodes of “The Simpsons,” “American Idol,” “Red Dwarf,” “Dead Like Me” and “Eerie, Indiana,” as well as the film “Holy Man.” He scored the British thriller “Bad Day” in 2007, contributed to the 2011 documentary “You’ve Been Trumped” and its 2014 sequel, and composed the score to the 2014 movie “A Dangerous Game.” He also wrote music for “Blake’s 7” audio plays by B7 Productions, based on the late-70s cult TV series.

A stalwart of the alternative electronica field, Glynn runs the No Bones Records label, recording under the names “Fluid” and “Cybajaz” and with Justin Mackay as “Syzygy.” He is a regular DJ at the Big Chill music festival. He also composed music for the Acclaim Entertainment video games “Forsaken” — performing as The Swarm — and “Re-Volt.”

Glynn is the first Doctor Who celebrity guest announced for 2018. Auten is negotiating with a number of exciting additional stars of the series. He joins Welsh actress Catrin Stewart, who plays heroic 19th-century investigator “Jenny Flint,” wife of Madame Vastra and one-third of the Doctor’s Victorian era comrades the Paternoster Gang. Joining Glynn and Stewart will be perennial Con K favorites Kelly Yates, a celebrated Doctor Who comic book artist for IDW Publishing and Titan Comics, and actor/writer Ellie Collins, author of Empire Valley , Writer/Actress for the award nominated podcast. Blood Crow Stories and a former actor on the vampire series The Originals.
