  1. 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.
  2. Hi Just out of curiosity, is there going to be a Sherlocked UK in 2018?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. This weekend it will be 12 months since last year's event at Excel! Where has the time gone?
  8. Hi guys! A further heads up, if you haven't seen it elsewhere. We may be waiting a while though.... http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2017/hamlet-bbc-two-andrew-scott Cheers m'dears P.S. while trying to click the emoticons window to look at all of them, I may have accidentally clicked on "report post" in Littlemisstrouble6179's post above. No offence meant. Sorry!
  9. Hi! A heads up for anyone who's interested. the NT Live broadcast is going to be shown in cinemas again. Details at the web page below. http://ntlive.nationaltheatre.org.uk/productions/ntlout27-hamlet Cheers
  10. All I know is I've booked my ticket for the play on 30/09/17. Anyone else going?
  11. I'm definitely up for meetups during the weekend! Include me in!
  12. Hi Everybody! What do you think of the party themes? Any ideas for costumes yet?
  13. 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?
  14. She was on my wishlist for last year's event, so this is lovely.
  15. I'm glad I'm not the only one worrying about that!
  16. I've just checked my credit card account online, and I've only been charged £30 as well.
  17. Hello! Just out of curiosity, how "limited" will the tickets be in each category?
  18. Add to that Lindsay Duncan, Sacha Dharwan (spelling?), Natasha O'Keefe,
  19. I did! Platinum ticket booked and hotel room sorted
  20. That happened to me too! I think a lot of Platinums were starting to queue for Mark's photo shoot, and it didn't make sense to keep those with slightly higher numbers waiting. While in the queue, I was able to see through a gap in the partition to the rear hall entrance all the guests were using. i saw Benedict having a ride on Jason's scooter!
  21. Hello If you guys had a meet up on Friday... I missed it! My train was late getting into Euston (some hold up near Harrow) and I was dashing to get to my hotel and check in before coming to Excel. Friday night was less hectic than last year, and I had very few problems getting photos of the props and costumes. I got loads of autographs on Saturday morning, meaning a bit less time queuing on Sunday. With all the extra talks going on in the main stage, I didn't manage to get to all of them. I missed a lot of Phil Davis' talks, and Louise's, to make sure I had BC, Mark and Loo's autos on my Sherlock Chronicles book. Shout out here to Too Tall who let me into Benedict's auto queue as other Platinum's were at Marks photo shoot on Sunday morning! I deliberately missed Andrew's to attend Arwel's on the second stage, and shortly after hearing the stories about elephants I saw the elephant costume in one of the autograph queues. Great fun! I hope that a future con won't be at this time of year. I'm back in work and cream-crackered!
  22. Hi I hadn't seen this query, so I'm wondering how long is each talk on the main stage scheduled to last?
  23. Okay, just for fun... One day more Another day, another con, you see This never ending road to baker Street Our man, who always solves the crime We're going to see a second time! I know the last line won't apply to everyone, but on the spur of the moment....
