Intervention 7 in Review

Reviews, blogs, and podcasts are pouring in from our attendees, and we’re loving all the feedback we’re getting! If you missed our event this year, these bloggers have got you covered!


‘Intervention was very close to my cave, and even though the DC metro area has some fairly large conventions and festivals, it was amazing to find such an intimate community right here.’

First up, writer Timothy Johnson tells us about his time as a panelist on Intervention Sunday. Check out his summary here, and be sure to check out his website for info on his writing career and his novel, Carrier.


‘What separates this Con from similar ones is the positive, all-inclusive vibe.’

Hello Talalay gives us an overview of the sights and sounds of this year’s event as Sarah Talalay stopped in to see panels conducted by her sister Rachel! Check out Sarah and James’s full blog to follow then on their travels around the world.


‘That’s the magic of Intervention: sometimes even the people who run it don’t know what sort of little miracles are going to happen.’

Our community manager Kara Dennison contributed a staff’s-eye view of the event to We Are Cult, a UK-based blog focusing on everything from sci-fi and fantasy to vinyl reissues and Hammer horror. Visit their blog for news, reviews, and features devoted to all things cult.


‘While remaining a friendly makers’ space, Intervention has shifted its scope into the broader realms of science fiction and fantasy.’

Gillian Kinney gave a run-down of her experience at various panels, offering insight into the convention’s growth over time. Check out her website for more information about her writing, art, and photography.

And, last but not least, there were kind words to be had in this TripAdvisor review of the Hilton, describing Intervention as ‘a geek’s heaven’!

There will also be panels, workshops, parties, interactive podcasts, dances, and anything-goes cosplay… this guy will even be there!

ICYMI: Alex Kingston coming to Intervention!


If you were away on Saturday, you missed the big news — Arthur Darvill has had to cancel his Intervention appearance due to work, and Alex Kingston has stepped up to fill his spot at the con! We’ll miss seeing Arthur, but can’t wait to welcome Alex to the Intervention family!

Our programming schedule and descriptions now reflect these changes, as does our guest page. Our program books have already been printed, so they will still list Arthur as being in attendance; we apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this may cause.

Alex’s two panels — her career spotlight and her Doctor Who-centric panel — will be in Main Events at 8 PM Saturday and 12 PM Sunday respectively.

You can also pre-order autographs and photo ops with Alex for $58 each on our registration form, as well as adding Enabler levels (including Level 4 at $125, which gets you into our exclusive Meet and Greet event with a selection of our guests!). Don’t forget, pre-reg closes tomorrow night at 11:59 PM, so make sure to grab everything you want in advance! We will only be taking cash for autographs and photos at the con.


GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT: Alex Kingston coming to Intervention!

Due to a work conflict, Arthur Darvill has sadly had to cancel his appearance at Intervention. We will miss having him at the event this year, but wish him all the best.

However. Intervention is a family event, so we’re getting some last-minute help from another Pond. Rory might not be able to make it, but his daughter Melody can…

Please welcome River Song herself, Alex Kingston, to Intervention 7!


While our program books will not be able to reflect this change as they’ve already been printed, our programming schedule on the site and our order form for autographs/photo ops will. If you have preordered autographs or photo-ops with Arthur Darvill, you will be contacted shortly to rectify this issue.

If you’re already registered for this year, you can now pre-pay for autographs and photo-ops with Alex over on our registration form. And if you haven’t and would like to, you have until Tuesday at 11:59 Eastern to get your badge at the pre-reg price of $60! After that, we’ll be taking at-door registration only for $65.

See you in a week, sweeties!


Prereg ends TUESDAY! Get your badge now!


This Tuesday at the end of the day, September 13 at 11:59 PM EDT, preregistration for Intervention 7 will close! That means you only have a few days left to get a weekend pass at the prereg price of $60! After that, you can buy a weekend pass at the door for $65 (provided we don’t hit our attendance cap).

$65 is still an awesome price for a weekend full of panels with guests like Arthur Darvill and René Auberjonois, hands-on panels and workshops, and a special two-hour multimedia presentation courtesy of Thomas Dolby. But if you want the best possible price and the least time in line before getting right to the cool stuff, preregister online now! You can also purchase autographs and photo-ops in advance for some of our guests!
