Day 2: Gally 2017
It stopped raining!
Then as I was leaving for the Con, guess what? It started raining again! 😦
So My Fifth Doctor had to borrow an Umbrella from a future incarnation for the day.
Though I was in Program, front row, from 10am to 6pm. 🙂 Same seat. I got up to get John Leeson to autograph my photo op session from yesterday. That was about it.
Staring off the day was Creature feature.
Hilarious panel with 3 Daleks, Dorian Maldovar and many aliens.
Then came the Red Dwarf Panel with Hattie Hayridge (Holly/Hilly) and Howard Burden (Set Designer).
Dominic Glynn’s Panel was good. No pics.
Then one of the stars I came to see the most: Catrin Stewart.
Danny Webb (Jefferson from “Impossible Planet”) and Anna Shaffer from the spin off “Class” were next. Good stuff all day I must say.
Then the real meat and the best panel all day, From Days Gone By…Classic WHO.
Peter Purves being goaded into “The Ballad of The Last Chance Saloon” was brilliant. Due to technical failure I didn’t get it recorded.
Then came Torchwood, and it was definitely not PG-13 at times.
Deep Roy, who has been basically everything, was fascinating as a guest and as a person.
(I will be getting a new camera before next year)
Then there was panel on “Gallifrey” the Big Finish series that I have had no time to listen to. It was fun though.
Then the last panel I attended in this stretch for the day was The Doctor himself… Paul McGann.
Then I went back to my hotel room for dinner and came back for the masquerade.
Peg Doll from “Night Terrors” and my favorite, the Anti-Matter Monster from “The Three Doctors”
Now onto the final day. Then I have to go back to reality…
