  4. So, having bought a diamond pass for my daughter, for Matt Smith, I wanted to drop a few bits of feedback. First, extremely helpful people. Everyone went the extra mile. Thank you to all of the staff. Couldn't fault anyone. She pointed this out as her biggest plus of the day (besides meeting Matt) - quote "the people are all so friendly." So, great job everyone. I'd also say that the organization of the event was a *notable* step up. The summer event was carnage - this was much better. Lastly, Matt Smith himself was great - very kind, took a moment with everyone, and he remembered my daughter for the photoshoot - must be a very difficult and busy day, and he nailed it. She was absolutely over the moon to meet 'her Doctor'. So top marks all. Obviously this is no longer a cheap hobby, but overall it was a great experience, so well done. Look forward to next year, and happy to reach deep for the right guests next time.

  9. Beg to differ, been to enough of these cons over the last 20 years to know. You’re assuming a long and laboured discussion about each item to be signed, which SM staff are quick to stamp out. This is how it goes: Quick greeting, several items passed conveyor belt style to the guest, signed in quick succession, job done, thanks given and attendee on their way. So to recap - one single greeting, multiple items signed, thanks and cheerio. Negligible signing time or discussion involved. Next customer please, by the way no reason for attendees to hang around all day to have additional items signed causing congestion. This new way means attendees have to hang around, go back with the VQ, creating even more queuing, additional greet time and discussion, inevitably slowing down the process unnecessarily whilst creating general annoyance for con-goers all around. Re DP’s not being fulfilled, ultimately if people haven’t got an item signed from the DP, this more likely comes down to SM overselling them. The upshot of the new rule means that you not only have an undervalued DP in terms of SM overselling it, but then under-delivering in terms of VFM. This leaves a nasty taste even before you consider the legality of arbitrarily changing the terms/conditions post sale of the DP’s. As the late, great Stan Lee (whose last U.K. appearance was so bungled and oversold by SM, thus giving rise to the DP) said: ‘Nuff Said.

  13. Totally agree this was a vast improvement on the summer event - it probably helps that it's smaller. The guests I met were all lovely and really seemed to be enjoying the experience. And it worked far better to have the popular guests in the booths from a queue management point of view. The crew were all super friendly and all my photo shoots went very smoothly. At least you could hear the batch number announcements . You will never be able to stop people congregating in the area. I had a really fantastic weekend. Thanks to ShowMasters I have now met all the Doctors from Tom Baker to Jodie Whittaker. Now if there could just be an announcement for Ncuti Gatwa.....

  14. I had a good time! The train situation into London was a nightmare but luckily I had no photoshoots booked in, so I could afford to be late. Ended up getting there around exactly midday and immediately managed to get autographs from the two guests I came for, Paddy Considine and Ty Tennant. My dad and I had a long walk through the merch hall and I got a good bit of Christmas gift shopping done, as well as some fun bits for myself! My dad was very happy with his LOTR shirt haul and he enjoys seeing all the cosplays. All in all probably my quietest comic con to date in the sense that I only got two autographs and no photoshoots, but I was there for a good five and a half hours and my dad and I had a blast! Paddy was so lovely. I got an autograph for my friend who couldn't come to the event and told him he's her favourite HOTD character, which he seemed very pleased to hear. He's very funny and down to earth, very glad I got to meet him! First thing my dad pointed out when he saw Ty was that our hair matches. We were definitely hair twinning to an extent there! He was very sweet, I hope he enjoyed his first ever convention!

  29. Whilst I certainly agree with the principle that with a rare and/or popular guest it's nice to be able to have as many people as possible get to meet them. My only bugbear is the T&C's for some DPs were changed AFTER purchase without any notification. Personally for me if the limit is now just the included auto I will consider it money saved as I can't be asked to queue again and will be happy with what I have.

  33. Okay so following on from my forum last year, i thought i'd post about any doctor who related guests, either the obvious or the obscure that will be announced for this con, what they contributed to the Doctor who line up and what you can personally get signed by any of the actors, writers, or comic guests. firstly we have BRIAN BLESSED (has to be in capitals), who appeared as King Yacarnos in "The Trial of a Timelord" Parts 5-8 or as its known "Mindwarp" he is £50 for an autograph, or what i would recommend based on past experience the Diamond Pass which is £90, as the last time he attended due to his friendly nature he tends to not get beyond those who have paid for a Diamond pass, he is on the Sunday Only. secondly on our more obscure side we have Wild Scolding, who has so far only appeared in audios those being "Thin Time", "The Mind of the Hodiac", "Mutually Assured Destruction", "Asking for a friend", "the True Saviour of the Universe", "Rogue State", "Dark Side of the Moon", "Now you Know", "Nevernor", "Mother Tongue", "Unity", "Sins of the Father", "Goodbye Piccadilly", "Empire of Shadows", "Superiority Complex", "The Restored" and "Peach Blossom Heights", so a nice variable Cavalcade of stories to chose from if that is your fancy, he is £15 with no Diamond Pass Option and is appearing on the Saturday Only. I will keep this updated with any further guests, i'll do my best to cross reference and find any connection, with the amount of smaller guests you'd be amazed with what comes up.

  34. I was trying to view their insta page earlier but it wouldn't load, I'd search it and the account would come up but then instagram would give me an error. And I can't tag them in any of my posts. I'm trying to wrack my brains and think of anything I might have done or said recently to warrant blocking but I'm coming up blank. Well regardless, I had a very fun and chill day. The quietest and least stressful comic con for me, train cancellations aside.

  38. You can arrive later if you prefer, if they have called your batch already you can just join the back of the queue. If they have reached VQ's, identify yourself to the crew and they usually try and slot you as far forward as possible, though you may need to join the end of the queue as DP's only have priority whilst they are calling DP's. They have changed the DP auto allotment now though so whilst you still get the one included, you can no longer get extra's at the same time, if you want more than one, you need to get a VQ and wait until that VQ is called. So if you only want the one included auto for each guest, then you can turn up a bit later, though make sure you factor in when they are in photo's/talks and don't leave it too late, but if you want extra auto's you need to be there to get a VQ.

  41. Yeah must be weird for Ty, hes appearing with 4 men (And one woman) who've played his dad and granddad and his on screen dad from "House of Dragon" must be confusing for the poor lad

  43. That’s quite an allegation. If you can prove that, then you presumably also have confirmation of the T&Cs at the time of purchase, and they’re the ones that SM have to adhere to.
