  1. RIP John Challis aka Boycie - he was a lovely man and a true legend of British TV https://indiemacuser.co.uk/2021/09/19/only-fools-and-horses-actor-john-challis-dies/
  2. Always stole scenes as Mrs Hudson in Sherlock - RIP Una Stubbs https://indiemacuser.co.uk/2021/08/12/sherlock-actress-una-stubbs-passes-away-aged-84/
  3. RIP Damaris Hayman https://indiemacuser.co.uk/2021/06/03/doctor-who-actress-damaris-hayman-passes-away/ She played The White Witch of Devils End in Doctor Who story The Daemons
  4. https://indiemacuser.co.uk/2021/05/18/original-alien-stunt-coordinator-roy-scammell-dies/
  5. Not only are a lot of U.K. guests being announced - but a lot of guests are only attending one day. there could be a logistical or financial reason behind that or perhaps guests Themselves are not keen to commit to the weekend
  6. How do we define good ventilation though? I don’t think most of us that have attended Olympia at normal capacity would consider it well ventilated. the grand hall is basically a giant greenhouse
  7. Some hope No masks but this does require attendees to have rapid flow test https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/04/30/clubbers-return-dancefloor-pilot-rave-event/amp/
  8. I see that it’s now possible to buy/pre-order autographs from guests on the website (as in autographs at the event, not sendin preorders or those included with passes) - will there be an announcement soon about how this is going to work in practice? Are these autos going to be somehow guaranteed or work similar to VQ, will this be the only way to buy autos or will They be Available at the event aswell? How Will the priority work?
  9. Another sad loss for 2021 - RIP Barbara Shelley. Perhaps best know for her work in Hammer horror but she also appeared as Sorasta in Doctor who story Planet of Fire as well as appearing in shows such as Blakes 7 and The Avengers. She was 88. www.indiemacuser.co.uk/2021/01/04/actress-barbara-shelley-hammer-horror-doctor-who-blakes-7-passes-away-aged-88/
  10. Starting the year with some sad news. RIP Mark Eden who played the titular role in Marco Polo as well as countless other roles outside of Doctor Who. indiemacuser.co.uk/2021/01/01/british-actor-mark-eden-dies-aged-92-after-alzheimers-battle/
  11. That was not a one of, he was one of the rare guests that likes to stand out front the table...just the best. the documentary Elstree 1976 shows how serious Jeremy took attending conventions and he was a real pro
  12. RIP to a legend and of the best guests to meet ever https://indiemacuser.co.uk/2020/12/17/star-wars-boba-fett-actor-dies/
  13. This legend was a staple of our convention scene for so many years. RIP https://indiemacuser.co.uk/2020/11/29/original-star-wars-darth-vader-actor-dies/
  14. https://indiemacuser.co.uk/2020/06/19/british-actor-ian-holm-lord-of-the-rings-alien-has-passed-away/ British actor Ian Holm (Lord Of The Rings, Alien) has passed away aged 88.
  15. Also depends how many tickets have been sold already and will they put a limit on future ticket sales to reduce capacity
  16. So it would appear that Cardiff Comic Con has gone to the great convention hall in the sky....
  17. So it seems like this event has bitten the dust now? No shows in 2020 and no dates listed for 2021
  18. With the 14day quarantine for incoming travellers announced today, unless these restrictions are lifted by the middle of July, we are unlikely to see any International guests/visitors even if the event does go ahead
  19. Even if the event does go ahead you may have problems as UK government will soon be introducing a 14day quarantine period on arrival to U.K. for all international travellers. Not sure if this will extend to July but it seems likely
  20. Yes, also we don’t know what date the 14-day quarantine for air travellers will be extended to yet either. if still in place the weeks before the event it would make it pretty impossible to go ahead on current dates Also might as well forget the current line-up as we don’t really know what guests personal response will be and filming schedules have all been affected too.
  21. It’s also no longer listed in the events lineup on Showmasters site
  22. LFCC is no longer listed on the Olympia venue website.
  23. https://indiemacuser.co.uk/2020/04/09/star-wars-return-of-the-jedi-actor-passes-away/
