    Who did you get?

    I got signatures from Alexander Siddig, Jason Isaacs, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Walter Koenig, Marina Sirtis, and Gates McFadden. I'd hoped to get Nichelle Nichols and Michael Dorn as well, but unfortunately I was there on Saturday when Nichelle was unwell (a shame, but obviously the important thing is her health) and had to get an early afternoon train before Michael was back from lunch and a shoot. I already had autographs from Shatner and Alice Krige which took the pressure off a bit. I tend to get DVD covers signed and may get more Disco people down the line once it's had a physical media release.

    Thanks for the advice. I had a limited amount of time at the event on Saturday and made sure to prioritise him. I believe I was the first person he saw that day and he was an absolute gent.

    Oh my!

    I didn't speak to him for long (oh, how I wish I'd remembered to praise Death of Stalin), but one of the most positive experiences I've had at a convention, and one that made the overnight coach straight from work worthwhile. He seemed genuinely pleased to see a copy of Black Hawk Down, and thanked me for bringing it to be signed. Lovely guy. Or possibly a mirror universe version who's really good at faking it. Wait a minute...

    Nichelle Nichols

    Sorry to have missed her as I could only attend on Saturday, but hopefully she'll feel better very soon.

    I cannot lie, this one stings. I'm considering the mighty trek from the north, and he was a big factor (both Blade Runners! Coco!). Hopefully we'll cross paths somewhere down the line, before too long.

    Great shout. Also, does Luke Goss ever do cons? I'm still coming to terms with the pretty boy from Bros being so outstanding in Blade 2 and Hellboy 2.

    That would be incredible. He's said before that being John Carpenter keeps him in beer and cigarettes, and I'd consider it a personal honour to help cover a few rounds.

    I've been getting all the Alien films signed (first DVD set I ever bought, way back when, so a special spot on the shelf), and Covenant is currently a notable gap in the line-up, so someone from that would be very welcome. Katherine Waterston, Carmen Ejogo (both of whom are in Fantastic Beasts), Amy Seimetz (also in Stranger Things), Tess Haubrich (The Wolverine), Danny McBride (the new Halloween), etc. Not that I'm going bracket crazy to point out potential appeal to other fanbases, of course... Unrelated, but anyone from Mad Max: Fury Road would also be welcome.

    I cannot lie, I would have been tickled if you'd replaced it with one of Joel Kinnaman in the remake. On a serious note, Peter Weller! This is the type of guest to make me consider the epic journey from the top end of the country...

    That's a wonderful idea. Hopefully she'd be up for it. I've seen a lot of people defending her on social media over the last couple of days, and I'm sure a great many fans would leap at the chance to prove that an unpleasant vocal minority don't speak for the fanbase in general. I'm up at the top end of the country, and she'd certainly increase my chances of making the trip.

    Ray Park said he'll do Newcastle again if he's invited.

    Latest Guest Announcement - ROBERT ENGLUND

    I was VQ 44 first thing in the morning on Saturday and didn't manage to see him until well into the afternoon. Got chatting to some lovely people in the various queues, though, and some of those staff members really do have my sympathy. Things looked to be running a lot smoother yesterday. And as expected, Robert was an absolute gent.

    Queuing and Layout

    I was in the first handful of people outside the door at 6-something this morning. I went straight for the available virtual tickets as soon as my wristband was on, and my virtual ticket for Robert was in the low 40s. I stayed in his queue for the first hour leaving only after he had and we were encouraged to, being told that we'd be the priority upon his and our return (other queues had grown drastically in the meantime, at least one having turned into a VQ, so I ventured off for a short while), and when I rejoined the queue, it still took several hours to reach the front due to problems like a lot of people successfully pushing in close to the front. No offence to the staff, but it wasn't as simple a matter as getting there early and Robert moving slowly (I was with him for less than a minute when I finally got there, somewhere between 2 and 3).
