Events- FOR THE LOVE OF SCI-FI- Liverpool Comic Con Edition

033It was yet another manic Sunday as I headed off on an epic journey to the Echo Exhibition centre in Liverpool for a Regeneration of Liverpool comic con nearly three weeks ago.

When I heard that MCM had dropped Liverpool from its roster, I had hoped someone else might take over. Phil from Mersey Comic Con, the first CC event I went to at Liverpool Uni in 2015, OR Paul who put on the excellent Southport CC, or Dave from MSE, or Loz from Hamfest or Alistair from Chester or Jaime from Wales.

Stepping into the breach at the Exhibition centre was Andy who runs FOR THE LOVE OF SCI-FI weekend at Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Trafford Park, Manchester. FTLOSF was the best CC of 2016. A perfect way to end the year. I got so many pictures and enough clips that ended up in about half a dozen videos, including two episodes of Dr. RRR and the cosplay group shoot. Funtimes.

December 2017 was less fun. I had wanted to go Saturday and then Wales CC Sunday, but Saturday had sold out because William Shatner was there, so went Sunday. It was a bit cramped and overcrowded, it didn’t help there was queues all over, so I took what photos I could and went back for Movie Wonderland at the end of Christmas, which was like a ghost town, but much better for shooting videos!

Anyway, the week before the event I had strained a muscle in my leg and had been limping to work, so Saturday rested it.

I thought it was much better Sunday, but as I walked up the steps there was a massive spasm and it was painful hobbling round. Think I might have overdone it a bit! Even sitting down for lunch (at £10 for fries, 5 pieces of chicken and a 7up) it still ached, so got a few interviews, although the background chatter was still noisy, but then, the upstairs lounge area wasn’t available this time. I hope that changes for next year. The Arena Stage wasn’t used either, might have been because there was a Gymnastics event on, but I hope the stage area might be moved back in there next time.

So, for a first attempt it was really good, shame I couldn’t enjoy it more as my leg was being such a pain, both figuratively and literally!

I think though there should be a Thunderbirds exhibit next time, as Andy and his team did jump in just like International Rescue

Thanks to Christian W, Andy T and Thomas H for the interviews.

Thanks to Delroy, Mark, and all the Cosplayers!

Thanks Paul, Nic, Sheikh and other stallholders/exhibitors

Thanks to the Andy and the Organisers for rescuing it. And Exhibition Centre staff for hosting.

15th Neo doctor – THE TIMEDALEK INVASION OF LIVERPOOL PART 2- AFTERMATH

Over the last year or so, I’ve been working on ideas for IW and ending the series. August 2016 I wrapped up series4 killing off the 14th NeoDoctor and him regenerating into a Female Incarnation. I had a few ideas for a successor, primarily a shoot on Geek Girls featuring Moira Lafae as the Fourth Doctor. It should have been easy, but I had to get the follow-up written, which has taken a little bit longer than planned, (yeah, a year in fact!) I had planned last March, then the summer, then winter 2017, but adding and changing things meant it kept getting pushed back. Then I had to get permission off the photographers, which took a bit longer, as there were…

Over the last year or so, I’ve been working on ideas for IW and ending the series. August 2016 I wrapped up series4 killing off the 14th NeoDoctor and him regenerating into a Female Incarnation. I had a few ideas for a successor, primarily a shoot on Geek Girls featuring Moira Lafae as the Fourth Doctor. It should have been easy, but I had to get the follow-up written, which has taken a little bit longer than planned, (yeah, a year in fact!) I had planned last March, then the summer, then winter 2017, but adding and changing things meant it kept getting pushed back. Then I had to get permission off the photographers, which took a bit longer, as there were three credited, but one I couldn’t figure out. In the end it just made sense for me to find someone I had photographed and get them on board the STARDIS!

Enter Annie, who I met at MCM Liverpool a year ago

The Burning Skies Cosplay group is a bunch of Doctor Who cosplayers on Facebook, from all over the world, but based mainly in the UK. I’ve been to a couple of their shoots, which have been such fun. So, once Annie had agreed, I had to crop the photos and then sort out the covers- and voila!  The 15th Neodoctor is here at last!

Now I’ve got to figure out what to do for the multiple/multiversal Doctor mashup for the finale of Series 5, oh what joy!

In the meantime- here it is at last- THE TIMEDALEK INVASION OF LIVERPOOL PART TWO- AFTERMATH!

Happy reading!

Anything can happen Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday 2018!

Well, Last week was certainly eventful. I went walking Monday, after Ellesmere Port comic con on Saturday and babysitting Nephews Sunday, but on Tuesday, woke up feeling groggy and eye was sore and bloodshot and weepy. So I thought it might have been an eyelash or grit in my eye, so spent an hour looking before I got it into my head it might be another detached Retina, which I had about 26 years ago when I was 18 and spent a week in hospital after eye surgery.

Well, that was an unpleasant thought, so headed to my local NHS drop-in clinic. After nervously waiting for about 20 minutes, got seen for Triage (assessment) and then had an eye test, very nerve-racking, but somehow had contracted Conjunctivitis, so had to get eye drops and take the day off school, which was just as well as I felt very tired and groggy, so had a lie down at half four and got up about 8ish!

So, consigned to taking the eye drops every two hours for next few days, I was surprised to find a message from the hospital I’d had the operation for in 1992.

Anyway, got seen by the Eye doctor and had the strangest afternoon because of the drops they put in my eyes to make pupils dilated for a few hours. Honestly, everything was so bright and hazy, too bright, even when I got to school had to close the blinds. BUT doctor said everything was fine and conjunctivitis had cleared up. Happy days!

So in all a mighty strange week. Then I went to Southport on Saturday for a Promo shoot for NWCC’s Southport Comic Con.

But that is a tale for another time, I think!

 

 

 

1 reason Jodie Whittaker is perfect as the New Doctor

15th dr1 reason Jodie Whittaker is perfect as the New Doctor—

“My Successor? It could even be a Woman. There’s no reason why The Doctor should always be a Man”

Tom Baker on his ‘retirement’ from the role of Doctor Who.

(Quoted from Regeneration- The Mystery of Ages. The Time Travellers Guide by Peter Haining. 1987. (1995 edition))

 

Yes I know I have used that quote before, but it seems some people just don’t get it. It has finally happened. Speculated on in the tabloid papers and online for years and parodied in the Red Nose day sketch ‘Curse of the fatal death’ in which Joanna Lumley featured, Moffat has been paving for the way for it for the last few years, with the mention of The Corsair being a ‘bad girl’ to the General regenerating onscreen into the female general and the appearance of Missy.

 

There are probably a whole host of reasons I could make a list of, 10 or 5 are the most popular way of doing it, but really, there is ONE good, solid reason why –

BROADCHURCH

This is a far cry from the first thing I saw her in- attack the block, which was rubbish, and here’s my review of it-

https://iancaimercer.wordpress.com/2011/11/14/attack-the-block-dvd/

Anyway, I posted the video I made shortly after the announcement of Jodie Whittaker being cast as the new Doctor.

I didn’t want to get into the whole argument of whether it’s a good move, but you know it is really, so just accept it.

As I said before- Regeneration 101 will go into the whole mechanics of how a sex-change Regeneration works, and there has been precedent, not just over the last couple of years but in the classic series too. Tom Baker himself said why not, and there’s even been a XenoRegeneration (Species-change) I’m also going to explain why the numbering is wrong (15th not 13th!) and get into that as well, oh joy!

But for now, just enjoy my video and the hints of what’s to come in both Doctor Who and Infinite Whoniverses series 5- now rescheduled for Easter 2018!

And watch Broadchurch!

Events- CHESTER WRITERS @ CHESTER LITERATURE FESTIVAL 2017

cwa17bIf you go down to the Storyhouse in Chester tomorrow, then you’ll be in for A BIG SURPRISE, as the Teddy Bears picnic nursery rhyme goes.

It’s one more sleep til Xmas. Erh, nope, sorry, not quite! One more sleep til the Chester Writers Anthology debut at the Storyhouse is what I mean! Then I will take to the stage for the debut of ‘The Case of the Missing Mince Pies’. I had thought of reading it in the style of Tommy Cooper’s Hat Sketch, but that would be too confusing and I’ll never be able to pull it off anyway, so I will just have to read the story as it is written!

So it should be fun! Tickets are £5, including a copy of the Anthology and hopefully the weather won’t be too bad. The events on indoors anyway in the Garrett Theatre, so what the hey!
