    Now then guys - is anyone going down Sarf for this?

    I am you see, and normally i'd be crashing at my mates, which I'd still love to do, but I also quite want to go to one if not both of the two parties which are happening - so before i cashed up on a hotel i thought i'd see if anyone else was planning to go, and if so, if they fancied sharing a room!

    Is this the one in Milton Keynes? :confused:


    If so, I might be going. It cost me a lot last time, and wasn't really worth it, but as the Manchester one ain't til November with the March one being cancelled, I might have to go here. Only problem is it clashes with Free Comic Book Day, and if I don't pick up me free Battlestar Galactica comic from Sheffield someone else might and under appreciate it. :oops:

    Dude - surely the store will save you one? I always get the freebies put to one side for me, :) And if it does clash i'm sure someone at the con will have them! I was gutted GMEX3 got put back, but better that than it be a duff event - my main problem with MK CM is that you have to pay for the talks, and there are never as many of them, and so...other than get sigs and peruse stores, there's not much to do - which is fine for a day, but it sucks for two days. Thankfully I have friends who live locally!

    Nil - no worries man, i'll have gladly helped if I could have done - sorry man, :(

    I could be tempted.....wouldn?t mind meeting Terry Jones. Train prices are utterly ridiculous (+£80) so I?d take the car- prob travel down late afternoon Friday and go home Sat??will have a think [face_thinking]

    Yeah - trains are a 'mare to MK - luckily i can usually swing my work arrangements so that I can use the return portion of a trip to London to get home again, so I only end up having to pay for a single from London to Milton Keynes - and maybe fares to and from my friends or a hotel! I think i'm staying with a friend the Friday - and hotelling the Saturday so I can do one of the parties!

    Well I only went for the Saturday but it was fun. ;D

    I have pictures - mainly of Tim - and I shall share some of them among you here.

    Tim & Ven look pleased with themselves - whilst sitting on a bench.

    Tim warns MI5 that any attempt to thwart his diabolical scheme will result in dire consequences!

    Tim gets grumpy as a handsome man muscles in on his headshot.

    Tim's super-hearing warns him of danger. But should he use his power for good or evil?

    Great to see Tim & Ven again and nice to meet Matt for the first time :)
    I had a great weekend and my staunch will to not pay £15 for pics/autographs was finally broken by the lure of Ray Park & Terry Jones (Tim, thanks for being my photographer and official bag holder at those moments!) Those pics haven't passed my stringent quality control tests (mainly 'cos I was too nervous to perfect my wonderful smile) hehe

    Tim & Ven:

    Nice photos.

    Matt, you look about 7 foot tall. Either that, or Suzi was sitting down :p
