Strange there wasn't anything in the Podcast from the Panels , except the introductions, even from the BF Panel.
Was recording the Panels banned?
I think it was more that Nick probably didn't want to edit down more panel material since he really had such a quick turnaround to putting this together.
At the feedback session, in response to someone saying something about having a panel where veteran Big Finish listeners could attend, Jason mentioned that at other conventions they have a Talk Back to Big Finish panel which does become a podcast. With any luck, there will be one of those next year.
Yes I did have a blast, always do at Doctor Who cons. It's just a very lovely and open fandom.
And now you can all come to LI WHO in November.
Yeah, I'm still surprised just how *decent* people are in the larger Who community are. I've been checking in with the Facebook group throughout the day and it's been nothing but "I had a great time!" and "I loved this costume!" It really is the polar opposite of the toxicity of most online communities.
I'd really like to be able to swing Long Island Who. I learned about just slightly too late last year.
We've got a busy con season coming up. We usually attend them with our neighbors and another couple. They want to go to Awesome-Con, but I'm pretty leery after reading what you and nottenst had to say about it in the other thread. And we want to hit the Potterverse con in September. If we play it right, we'll be able to make them all.
it is tempting, but I am going to a local convention the weekend before and I am hesitant about doing two conventions two weekends in a row. I am going to the North American Discworld convention in September labor day weekend (in New Orleans - my first travel to a convention in many, many years), so I probably will also pass on Potterverse the weekend after that. Still, I might change my mind.
I actually feel I am going to too many cons this year. For the longest time the only con I went to was an anime con called Otakon which I've been going to on and off since 2005. Ironically it's been in Baltimore until this coming year when it will be in DC.
Then I started to go to LI WHO about 3 years ago & then I get the Foctor Who con bug. Despite the fact that the guests tend to rotate from con to con I just really love the atmosphere of them. I may even try to get tickets to Gally again this year.
But I do really love LI WHO it's just a very friendly con. My first year I went alone and since then I've met many friends there.
I actually feel I am going to too many cons this year. ....
Here is my "usual" list:
February - Farpoint March - ReGeneration Who May - Balticon July - Shore Leave September - Baltimore Comic Con (which actually emphasizes comics, but has had an increasing number of actors in recent years) October - Capclave; Small Press Expo November - Faeriecon
(all of these are local)
Adding to this list for 2017 is North American Discworld Convention in New Orleans in September (which preempted another local convention for me - Escape Velocity) In 2018 - Worldcon in San Jose in August and World Fantasy Convention in Baltimore in November
So, adding more conventions to my list might not be the best idea
I just realized when I was talking to Paul Magrs I was also talking to George Mann. But I did not realize it at the time. I am not that familiar with Mann's work though as I have not read or listened to any of it. But I do feel bad that I didn't recognize him then. He was very nice.
There is a facebook group www.facebook.com/groups/regenerators/ in which several people have posted some short videos from the event such as Sylvester McCoy playing spoons (on more than one occasion), Peter Purves singing, Nick Briggs remembering Nicholas Courtney, Katy Manning reading from a new Iris script, and more. So, if you do have a a Facebook account, you might want to check it out.
