I went and it was great. Helped no end by some vodka and an ensuing blur and slight stagger. Met Furman and Senior - really nice guys. As were the whole Titan team and a TF collector guy we spoke to who also does concept art stuff on the new live actions movies.

For some reason they had half the cast of Quadrophenia, Danny Dyer and a small battalion of leather clad men re-enacting battles.

It almost went Fear and Loathing, but I steered clear of the ethanol and dancing monkeys and kept to safer ground, watching the Hobbit from Lost and the distant bobbing head of Tom Baker from a distance.

Looked like a great line up there. Who had the biggest queue? ;)

I'd say Tom Baker, Mads Mikkelsen and Billy West seemed to be doing the best, with Dominic Monaghan and Robert Englund just behind. I went on Saturday so I missed the Patrick Stewart and the cast of Heroes on Sunday, who I imagine did pretty well.

I didn’t queue for anyone myself since I don’t see the point of signatures, but its fun to celeb spot: a couple of years back I geeked out when Michael Biehn walked right past, and Jenette Goldstein (Vasquez) waved at me from her table.

I don't like meeting famous people in case I get disappointed and/or I make a **** of myself.

True story - I was in a shoe shop in Oxford with Billie Piper last week. I didn't say hi.

You, sir, are my hero.
