Doctor Who at 56!

Saturday 23rd November 1963- a little programme about a time travelling old man and his granddaughter first appeared on British TV.

First Contact Day

This was my first event of the year and all I can say is WOW! It was also my first time in a long while that I had volunteered to help out at a con. The last time I did so was back in the 90s at the Rising Star events. The weekend began with... Continue Reading →

Collectormania 21

I wasn't planning to attend this time around as it normally means staying over and lots of cabs etc. However, someone I know was announced as a guest, and as I was the one who suggested he hits the con circuit and I built his website I thought I should put in an appearance.

Collectormania 15

One of the best CMs for a long time. There were many great guests to choose from, but financially I could not meet all the ones I would like to so I had to choose carefully.... First came Avery Brooks, from Star Trek:DS9. Such a lovely dude even though he seemed a bit spaced out.... Continue Reading →
