Hello Con Maniacs,
Wales is going to be the place to be this coming June 5th 2011 for Wales Comic Con. This event will be held at Glydwr University, Wrexham, UK. Remember, if you want more detailed coverage of this event here on www.conmania.com then contact the promoter either via their email: email@example.com or their contact page.
Here you have another opportunity to meet the great Gareth David-Lloyd and Kai Owen from Torchwood will be appearing.
Still with the Dr. Who theme, Colin Baker, the 6th Dr. He was definitely a crazy Dr. That coat of his was a hoot.
As a fantastic change of pace how about David Prowse the man behind the Darth Vader helmet.
This is a show that is really growing in popularity. I would love to feature some more on this event. If your attending let me know at Magid@raybin.com
Alot of you will be starting to get ready to travel for the Christmas holiday. So make sure to be careful, take a deep breath and realize everything will probably take twice the time you think it will. If it doesn’t you will pleasantly surprised. Enjoy having a shorter work week too…
Hello Con Maniacs,
Well it looks like everyone had a blast at the Chicago Tardis event. Take a look below at this fun “rap” about wanting coffee from Gareth David-Lloyd while being assisted by the beat boxing of Kai Owen…
And how about Kai Owen singing!?!? He might have another career. What do you think?
Oh my stars and garters, you can’t miss this next one. Kai Owen singing the John Barrowman song…It is brilliant!
To the fans who took this videos thanks a million. This event looks like it was a hoot. If you went I would love to hear from you at Magid@raybin.com
I have to say I love my Torchwood. I am so looking forward to their adventures here in the US. I know a story I would love to see, how does Captain Jack become the Face of Boe? Wouldn’t that be cool…Let me know what you think!
Hello Con Maniacs,
This one is for all the Doctor Who fans out there. Of which I know there are many. Gallifrey One’s Catch 22 Islands of Mystery which runs Feb 18-20, 2011 at the LAX Airport Marriott Hotel 5855 West Century Boulevard. You know, I can’t believe Doctor Who has been going for 47 years. The Doctor really can live forever.
Their lineup is fantastic. The show is being headlined by Peter Davison the 5th Doctor. He is such a nice man. Back in Australia he appeared at a Grace Brothers store and I got a couple of novels autographed by him. I remember it like it was yesterday.
Next up is several of Peter Davison’s companions. The first, Janet Fielding who played the fiery Aussie gal Tegan Jovanka. She was always a hoot on the show. After witnessing the Doctor regenerate into his fifth incarnation, she joined Nyssa and Adric in their travels with the Doctor. Tegan’s adventures with the Doctor were especially traumatic: she was present when Adric died, and was mentally assaulted by the Mara on Deva Loka.
Finally sickened by all the death she’d witnessed, Tegan left the Doctor and Turlough, after helping to thwart an attempt by the Daleks to invade time itself.
Next is Sarah Sutton who played Nyssa. Nyssa was the aristocratic daughter of Counsel Tremas, who had been chosen to become the next Keeper (a position of great importance). The Master planned to use Tremas’s investiture to give him a new regeneration cycle, and was renewed when he merged with Tremas, robbing Nyssa of her father.
Orphaned, Nyssa was soon reunited with the Doctor, and they travelled together, with Adric, Tegan and Turlough, for some time, before arriving on Terminus. Here, Nyssa was infected by lazar’s disease, and decided to stay behind, to help the Vanir research a cure.
Third is Matthew Waterhouse who played the tragic Adric was also somewhat of a heartthrob at the time. Adric, a teenage boy with a gift – and badge – for mathematical excellence, was a member of a street gang on the planet Alzarius, along with his brother, Varsh. Adric, alone and hungry for adventure, stowed away in the TARDIS after Varsh sacrificed his life to save the Doctor and his friends.
Often frustrated by his clumsiness, and fiercely competitive, Adric struggled to find a useful role among the TARDIS crew. He ultimately gave up his life by remaining on board a spaceship that crashed into prehistoric Earth, causing the death of the dinosaurs.
Lets not forget K9, well the actor who was the voice of K9 John Leeson. K9 was the creation of Professor Marius, who had made the loyal robot dog to circumvent weight restrictions when travelling to the Bi-Al asteroid. When he returned to Earth, Marius gave K9 to the Doctor. Capable of independent thought, and equipped with a blaster, K9 was a useful companion.
The Doctor gave K9 to Leela when he left her on Gallifrey, but had already prepared K9 Mk II. Despite numerous technical problems which put him out of action, K9 Mk II travelled with the Doctor until he was given to Romana as a parting gift. The Doctor sent another K9 to Sarah Jane Smith, after she had returned to Earth.
Few, I’m exhausted…What you want more? Well how about Kai Owen who plays Rhys Williams in Torchwood.
This show has about another 50 guests…That is amazing. This show is going to be amazing. If your going I would love to hear from you see your pics. Especially of anyone dressed as my favorite Doctor, Tom Baker. You can reach me at Magid@raybin.com
I think I hear a familiar sound! No, it couldn’t be. Is that the Tardis? Oh my, what am I going to wear? You know, I think I’ll ask if we can go to Skaro. I have always wanted to see the birthplace of the Daleks. Here we go, wish me luck!
Hello Con Maniacs,
I don’t know about you, but I love Doctor Who. I have been a fan since about 1975. I can remember meeting Tom Baker and Peter Davison at shopping centers in Sydney. Both were really nice. (Oh, Tom Baker was the 4th Doctor and Peter Davison was the 5th). Well my friends, November 26-28 at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center in Illinois is hosting Chicago Tardis 2010. Woo Hoo…
Some of the great people you will meet at this event are the amazing Gareth David-Lloyd-Ianto from Torchwood(an anagram for Doctor Who). I worked with Gareth at the 2008 Comic Con in San Diego and I can tell you he is a wonderful guy and loves his fans.
One of my favorite Doctor Who companions is Leela (Louise Jameson), one of the 4th Doctors companions. She was one of the toughest and resourceful women you would ever want to see.
Venturing back to Torchwood, Kai Owen-Rhys Williams who plays the long suffering fiance of Torchwood agent Gwen Cooper and is so lovable will be in attendance.
Now lets take a trip to the Sarah Jane Adventures. For those of you who do not know, Sarah Jane Smith was the companion for both the 3rd-(Jon Pertwee) and 4th-(Tom Baker) Doctors. Sarah was known for getting into trouble, but she was so lovable. Even though she would get in trouble she would then turn around and be able to stand up to the likes of Davros, the creator of the Daleks. I digress, in The Sarah Jane Adventures her adoptive genius son is Luke Smith, played by Tommy Knight.
