    Tv and movie guest suggestions

    Hello! I haven't posted for a while as there haven't been any of the hotel-based, specific show-themed cons running for ages. Apart from the Sherlocked events (which I adored) I've not been able to get to the bigger comic-con style events. I did see the Facebook post on your home page saying that you now want to organise some more smaller events in the future. As I don't use Facebook, can I put my 5 cents' worth here? I'd love to see:- Hobbit/LOTR; Harry Potter, especially if you could get some of the actors who have done the stage show alongside the film actors; Gotham would be good too.

    Sherlocked UK 2017

    Hi Just out of curiosity, is there going to be a Sherlocked UK in 2018?

    Films watched in 2018

    Hear, hear! To say he did the whole thing in just 9 days, it really doesn't show. I also enjoyed The Greatest Showman over the Xmas holiday.

    Sherlocked UK 2017

    I was battling with a head cold and cough all week leading up to the con, so I apologise for the noise I made during some of the talks. The problems getting to Birmingham on the Friday didn't help either. Having said all that, I'm so glad I made it! Never got to the parties (too bloody tired), but made the drinks receptions to meet the guests, and the quiz on Sunday, and was part of the winning team. One thing.... with not needing to get every auto and photo, the schedule was more manageable. I really enjoyed the singalong in the queue for Marcia's photoshoot on Sunday afternoon! Here'a hoping for better health next year, and that the dates aren't awkward for booking time off work.

    I've been to the play in preview, thought it was brilliant, and now it's opened the reviews have been great! If you can get a seat for it, go!

    Party Themes

    I have used the official NHS badge template to help me make an ID badge, and bought an NHS lanyard from Amazon. Wear it with civvies and I'm a consultant paediatrician at St. Caedwalla's Hospital. Still not sure of what to do for the Victorian gothic, though.

    I'm mulling over this as well, but maybe I'll just get my con programme signed this time. Unless there's an updated edition of Chronicles before October?
