    Guest Suggestions

    Hi Could I request Paul Nicholas please? He has had a long and distinguished career on stage and screen with film and TV credits including Tommy, Lisztomania, Stardust, Just Good Friends and EastEnders to name but a few. I think he would be a very popular guest because of the diversity of his roles. I recently saw him on stage in Manchester playing Father Merrin in a stage production of The Exorcist and would love the opportunity to meet him. Cheers :-)
  2. Hi Will a photoshoot schedule be posted soon please? The only reason I ask is that I will have limited time at the Film Fair due to train times. I won't be able to get to the venue until 11am at the earliest and I have to be on the 4.00pm train back home. I would like to get a photo with Phil Daniels but am holding off buying a photoshoot ticket until I know what time it will be. Thanks Rob
  3. Judging from an earlier reply I was under the impression that anyone wishing to transfer a Batch 1 photoshoot ticket from Friday would be granted a Batch 1 ticket for Saturday. When I sent my email to request a transfer I asked if I would receive a Batch 1 ticket for Saturday but was told that the best you could do was Batch 5 for Saturday which I felt I had to accept. Can you clear up any misunderstanding about this please? Thanks

    Quadrophenia cast reunion

    Hi I would like to request that you add some of the cast and crew to one of your events this year if possible please? It was a little frustrating for quite a few of us who attended another event recently when we were not able to get a photo or autograph with any of the cast in attendance, although to be fair it was not advertised as that kind of event. But to my mind it was a bit of a missed opportunity for the organisers, who could have organised a group photo session and I (and others) would have happily paid extra for that. Here's hoping anyway! :-) Rob ***edited by moderator - apologies Rob but I've had to edit this post as discussion of other events is not permitted on the showmasters forum***

    Len Jones (the voice of Joe 90) for Newcastle

    I would also like to see Len Jones appear at one of the conventions. He was in quite a few films in the 60's and 70's, most notably (for me) he played Sally Thomsett's brother in 'Straw Dogs'. I have an original poster for this movie which has been signed by 4 cast members and it would be nice to add his autograph to it. I would also like to see Ken Hutchison appear too who played 'Scutt' in the film, another great actor who I think would be popular at one of these events.

    NEED HELP with digital photos !

    Hi I just went on the photo gallery to buy and download a copy of the photo I had taken with Tom Savini at LFCC from Sat 18 July 2015 and there is no 'Add To Cart' option, only 'Lightbox'. Does this mean I can't order a download of my photo? Thanks Rob
  9. Hi I just wanted to pass on my thanks and appreciation to all the staff involved in organising the Sheffield event. I attended on the Saturday and the staff were very helpful and knowlegable with any questions that I had. It wasn't overcrowded and this was largely due I think to the ticket cap and '1 in - 1 out' policy. It worked very well and made for a very enjoyable day for me and my friend. I even managed to browse round the seller stalls quite comfortably as well as meeting the guests. Well done everyone involved and I look forward to next year. :) Rob

    how did today go?

    I enjoyed the event today. I travelled from the Wakefield area so had quite a long journey but with the exception of Bob Wall all the stars who I wanted to see were in attendance. I had quite a long conversation with Del Henney about 'Straw Dogs' and his TV show 'Fallen Hero' from the 1970's. He was a very nice man and because there were not so many people in attendance early in the day it was comfortable and I didn't feel pressurised to cut my time short with the guests, unlike the London ComicCon event earlier in the year! I hope the number of people increased as the day wore on though to make it worthwhile for the guests. I also met Sally Thomsett, Carol Cleveland and Dave Prowse so it was a very successful and pleasant day for me. :) I hope other people had similar experiences. Thanks Rob

    Latest Guest Announcement - Del Henney

    Great to see Del Henney announced as a guest. I look forward to meeting him. It would be great if Ken Hutchison could be persuaded to appear. He played Norman Scutt in 'Straw Dogs' but sadly gave up acting many years ago. He was a familiar face on TV in the 1970's and always played his characters with an edge and individuality that made him such a fine actor. Another notable actor from 'Straw Dogs' was Jim Norton who played 'Cawsey' the rat catcher. He later went on to play Father Brannan in 'Father Ted'. Thanks Rob

    Photo thread

    Hi Did anyone take any pictures of George Romero at his signing table on Saturday? I know he wasn't doing any posed photo's but if anyone has any of him on his own at the table it would be great to see them. I had some original film posters that he signed for me and it was the highlight of my day to meet him :) Thanks Rob

    Tv and movie guest suggestions

    Hi. I would like to suggest iconic 70's and 80's TV and movie actor Ken Hutchison as a ComicCon guest. He retired from acting a number of years ago but I believe he lives in London and could be persuaded to attend one of these events. He is perhaps best known for some of his hardman roles in 'Straw Dogs' and 'Sweeney 2' but he also played Heathcliff in a 1978 TV adaptation of Wuthering Heights and Murphy in 1980's children's TV show 'Murphy's Mob'. Would be great to see him :) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0404455/?ref_=sr_1

    Guest suggestions

    I would love to see appearances by some of the great horror film directors: Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), William Friedkin (The Exorcist). Wes Craven (Nightmare On Elm Street), John Carpenter (Halloween) etc or maybe a 'Quadrophenia' cast reunion, Phil Daniels, Toyah Wilcox, Leslie Ash, Mark Wingett, Phil Davies, who knows maybe even Sting might agree to appear!
