I'm going to guess (hope/wish/pray) that it's David Tennant. I don't think it will be but i can dream can't I :P

 

 

if its tennant ill be p****D, I cant make this con, im going to a bon jovi concert on the sunday and its also world cup time. but if tennant shows and does autos and photos ill be mad I can tell ya, and thats a massive marketing opportunity missed also if it was.

 

Just because....

Well Tennant doesn't seem to have much work going on.

 

But the reason they wouldn't announce him is because you would get a flood of fangirls taking up all the tickets and true collectors miss out.

I would go to this event if I knew who this guest was.

Was hoping we would now who it was. I would be gutted if it was someone I needed for a personal item that I had left behind.

The fact that it says 'To be announced at the show' implies to me that they'll be announced, well, AT the show...

It's always said 'at the show' so I assume that's when it'll happen!

Yeah I'm expecting them to come on-stage/be announced on the screens during the opening ceremony, not a moment sooner.

 

But yes, I am taking pretty much everything I need signed by certain people just incase lol I recommend you all do too to avoid dissapointment.

If thats the case I'll have brought stuff for nothing, but saved myself a tonne of money lol

 

Cause certain guests will not only get the above treatment, but also a few photoshoots, maybe even 3. If they do a shoot.

It's a nice idea, but think it would be unwise for an organiser to risk it. The event isn't a charity - you'd probably need the extra ticket sales to afford him. I don't think ticket sales have been exactly spectacular. Any advantage you have you have to take. The only exception to that might be if it weren't a firm commitment, and he didn't want his name being used to sell tickets to an event he might not be able to do. But as his ex-girlfriend is there, would they want to do the same event anyway?

 

Nowt wrong with fangirls. Bring em on. Liven up the weekend :D

 

 

Still, not knowing doesn't help me plan for spending, assuming said person is even signing. Even a monster could have at least 5 things I'd want signed, £40 I could spend. But I probably won't have those bits on me.

 

So some true collectors without their collections would still miss out!

Not quite sure what you mean by "true collector" is there some test we'll need to take on the door to ensure we're suitably approved before we can enter or get photos/autos :lol:

 

Squealies are just as legitimate con attendees as fans who've been attending events since before the show went OFF the air back in 1987.

 

As I said when I first saw this post I think its the worst idea I've seen SM/10th P do. As I'll be commuting to the event I'm just hoping whoever it is they're going to be there and signing on the Sun and the name is announced on the Sat. That way I can ensure I have everything I need.

 

I'm not even going to attempt to bring photos and books for everyone who's been in new Who. So if the person is Sat only then whoever it is I'll either not care as I didn't need anything signed or will be really annoyed as I did. From my perspective this has zero upside for the event it can only cause me grief.

See I never thought of this as being entirley SM/10thp's idea. I thought maybe they made the best of it when whoever the guest was asked to be kept secret for whatever reasons they had.

 

Just my personal theory.

I reckon it is EITHER

 

a smallish guest (one SM/10thp don't envisage bringing in a huge number of attendees on their own) and the 'surprise/guessing game' element is just to add a bit of extra fun and intrigue to the proceedings

 

OR

 

a rather bigger guest who requested it in their contract and SM/10thp had the option of either not getting the guest at all, or keeping them a secret.

 

 

We won't know until next weekend!
