I got to see all the people I wanted and the staff were very friendly.
There are however a few points I would like to raise.
Car Park: Having never been before I wasn't aware of the layout, we arrived at the back of the stadium near Gate 4 but all of the Car Park was full and from our vantage point it looked like the rest was being dug up. There was no-one to ask about where else we could park or any clear signs and it was only by chance that we found that the front of the stadium had car parking spaces. I believe this was rectified on Sunday but wasn't much help to us on Saturday.
Queuing: We arrived before 9.00am and decided to queue at Gate 5, so we could get the VT for Karen Gillan. This was one of the guests I really wanted to meet, in the line behind us were people that did not however want to meet Karen. While I realise you had posted which gates to queue for i.e. Gate 5 - Karen, Gate 4 - General Entrance and John Barrowman. There was nobody on hand to direct people to the right queue, then when people realised at around 9.00am, we got some dashing off to the general entrance and others who had gone in the general entrance getting in the line for Karen before people who had specifically queued at gate 5 which was rather frustrating.
Photoshoots: I was considering having a photoshoot with Karen Gillan and the 5 doctors but by the time I saw the queue for the photoshoots I was put off. I know that you were 30% up on people but I saw no signs on who was avaiable or completely booked up for their photoshoots. I could have joined the back of the very long queue got to the front, only to be told that the photoshoots were fully booked. I admit I may have missed a sign with the photoshoots still available/fully booked up but it didn't appear obvious. In future I will pre-book but unfortunately the online shop had closed before I was aware of the event.
I will say again that I had a really good time, it was my first Collectormania and I am hopefully coming back into 2013

In the end it is down to them, and they may just use the 'photo shoot' excuse as a polite way out. It is their decision and we have to respect that.
Long signatures mean you're going to Hell.
