Hello everyone! 🙂
As promised, here’s my convention report for the ‘Stars of Time Film and Comic Con’ at the Helicopter Museum, Weston-super-Mare, taking place last Saturday on the 7th of May 2016!
I had a fantastic time on Saturday! It was a successful day-trip for me and my parents when we went on the Saturday to Weston-super-Mare by car. It was perfect timing and made it the perfect birthday treat for me as well making it one of the best birthdays I’ve had in a long time! Here’s how it went!
As I said, the event took place at the Helicopter Museum in Weston-super-Mare. I took plenty of photos of the helicopters on display at the museum with the digital camera. I took more photos of the helicopters than I did of the guests and of the cosplay attendees at the convention actually. 😀
I also took some photos of displays of Iron Man costumes; shields of Captain America and the Batmobile from the Christian Bale films of ‘Batman’. There were two Daleks there and the Robot from the ‘Lost in Space’ TV series. Bumblebee from the ‘Transformers’ movies was also at the event!
The highlight of the day for me was of course seeing Sarah Sutton, who played Nyssa, my favourite ‘Doctor Who’ companion. Sarah wished me a ‘Happy Birthday!’ at the event and I shared some of my birthday cake with Sarah and also with Ian Fraser, a professional photographer, who was helping her on the day.
I also met up with Chris Barrie, who played Rimmer in ‘Red Dwarf’ and Gordon Brittas in ‘The Brittas Empire’. It was the second time I met Chris at a convention and it was great to be chatting with him. I also first met Simon Fisher-Becker, who played Dorium Malvador in the new series of ‘Doctor Who’.
Something extraordinary happened on the day. My cuddly toy dog, Cuddles, sneaked a lift and came with us on the day to attend the convention. Cuddles got everywhere as he wanted to have a ride in the helicopters at the museum and have his photo taken with Sarah Sutton, which you see here. 😀
I also saw Simon Fisher-Becker’s one-man show of ‘My Dalek Has Another Puncture’ at the event. I enjoyed Simon’s show as I learnt more about the man who played Dorium Malvador in ‘Doctor Who’. This was the second part of a ‘trilogy’ of his one-man shows that he was doing at these conventions.
The day finished with me seeing Sarah Sutton for the last time and saying goodbye to her. I also purchased from the event a toy Dalek which I always wanted to get at these conventions. I also purchased Simon Fisher-Becker’s book (and had signed by him) on the first part of his autobiographical trilogy called ‘My Dalek Has A Puncture’.
The ‘Stars of Time Film and Comic Con’ event was a lovely day trip for me and my parents. I enjoyed going to the convention. The weather could have been better as we were promised sunny weather from the forecast, but it ended up raining. But on the whole, it was the best birthday treat for me indeed!
It was also great to see Sarah Sutton again; who I’m pleased to call my favourite ‘Doctor Who’ companion and friend. I’m looking forward to the next time I see Sarah again at another convention.
Thanks for reading!
Bye for now!
