    Yep. I've got tickets for the 16th and 30th.

  3. But at the same time, we really don't want them to forget... As such... Can we have Martin as a guest in October? Pretty pretty please? (and Benedict too, if it isn't too much trouble.)
  4. I know how that is! I've been to all of the Sherlocked Cons so far and that's the hardest part of all, finding the money to afford them.
  5. I went to the first Sherlocked by myself (travelling from the US). It was great, and really easy to meet new friends there. I wholeheartedly recommend it.
  6. So pack everything but the pants and just try not to forget to add them before departure. Check.
  7. Time to start packing yet?????
  8. Martin. Martin. Oh... and Martin, if you can get him. (And I still wouldn't say no to Davey Nellist as well.)

    You live too far away...I live in Idaho near the Canadian border. But you never know, he may sign more often for this play. Maybe wait and see what he does in the first few weeks of the run and then think about it.

    I'm pretty sure he only signed after the evening performance for Richard. Any chance you could go back on another, different night just for stage door?

    He seemed to sign about 2 nights out of 6 at Richard III. And even if it only increases the chances of him doing Sherlocked Con by 1-2%, that's still an increase!
  12. So, as Martin will be in London starring in a new play when Sherlocked Con is happening, and not off filming in far off lands, does this increase the chances of getting him as a guest at Sherlocked Con in October? I mean sure, he's clearly busy on the Saturday, but his show is dark on Sundays, and it's not a long train ride to Birmingham. *fingers crossed* And in case people haven't heard, he's in Labour of Love from Sept 15th through Dec. 2nd at the Noel Coward Theatre labouroflovetheplay.co.uk/
  13. You can all hide out in the cupboard in my hotel room if the boss happened to come looking for you.
  14. I'm not saying call in sick... But call in sick.
  15. See now, if you'd all just come over for Sherlocked LA next month, that would make the time until Birmingham go all that much faster.

    I'm arriving Tuesday.
  17. I'm looking at going to Universal too. But I've need to go before the con, since I fly home the day after.
  18. No worries! If you change your mind or have a rethink about the dust jacket option, just let me know. And as for getting excited for LA, yep. I fly down two months from tomorrow.
  19. Ah, I always say hindsight is a wonderful thing. One thing to maybe consider, when they put the pre order details up for the LA Sherlocked, if they allow send in's, you could send it to them to get her to sign just in case we don't get her at this one. That's part of the reason I do my auto list so I know before I go up and get all panicky who I want on what. Well, I say I do it to help me but you saw what happened to me in Ben's queue and how useless it turned out to be for him! That's a brilliant idea. I will remember. And you weren't useless in Ben's queue! I thought you were very organised and even got him using the right pens on the right things! And I'm glad I got to help - it gave me more time to talk to him... I'd offer to get your Chronicles signed by Amanda at LA for you, but I think the shipping on a book that heavy would be roughly the same cost as you getting a flight out yourself.
  20. It's Sian. I really am going to need a series 4 related thing for signings. Birmingham is turning out pretty much series 4 people.
  21. Ohhh yes! Well remembered JHW. I may just sqeee myself into a pile of mush if it ever happened. I'll NEVER really be blasè about Benedict appearing but if Martin does go I may be a bit Benedict who? Yeah been there, met him.... (not really but you know what I mean) I know exactly what you mean! Meeting Ben has been such a HUUUGE highlight for me each time it's happened, and completely unbelievable; but he somehow seems more accessible than Martin, who's much more remote. I've been a fan of his for such a long time (since Bruiser, which I realise is a niche reference!) that it would be like seeing a golden eagle in the garden, or something! Martin was absolutely lovely at stage door for Richard III, but I really want a chance at a photo op with him. And as for meeting Benedict, he was great at the last Sherlocked (even when my darling husband spent all our time with him at the autographs asking him to convince Martin to do the next convention.)
  22. On the "ever hopeful it's Martin' front... They did post about a big guest announcement for England on FB back at the beginning of February that never quite materialized. In the comments they said they were just waiting for finalization of the contracts. If that was related to this guest announcement, then it MIGHT be someone as big as Martin.
  23. I do hope those signatures were done in something permanent, rather than the wipe-off pen usually used. Otherwise there could be a very sad winning bidder!
