I knew it! Given the plot developments on Lost, with Charlie being killed off, I thought it would mean he would turn up at a Showmasters event, to make some money! And I was right. London Film and Comic Con 1st-2nd September. I am *so* there!! :)

(matildabj, you up for it?)

Not looking, but I think "It's a sad thing that Charlie was" told me most of what I might not want to know...

Changed! You're right - I was paying lip service rather than thinking my spoiler warning through.

Hey, I am also sorely tempted by the Dom but I'm a bit confused by the Comic Con website.

Do you buy your tickets to get in and then by the tickets for the autographs when you get in? I've only really been to the Fellowship Festival and that was different.

And how come photo opportunities are cheaper than authographs? I just find that a bit weird.

The way the tickets work, is that you buy Early Bird ticket entry for 9.00 and then you rush to grab virtual queue tickets for the autographs, and also tickets for the talks if you want to go to them. None of these tickets cost you anything, except the Early Bird ticket.

If you choose the standard entry then at 11.00 you get in and get the same tickets, if you want them, but of course, there's a long queue in front of you (in virtual terms :) Sometimes the tickets for the talks can run out, as the talk space only holds so many. Sometimes the number on your virtual queue ticket is so high, even if you wait all day they may never call your bunch of numbers. The guests can only sign so many, after all.

Basically you are free to wander around, mostly, just keep checking back every so often to see which bunch of virtual queue numbers are being called, so it's not a bad system and saves queueing all day. On the down side though, you have to be there *really* early, if you want to get an autograph with a particularly sought after/popular guest. You pay for the autograph when you virtual queue number is up and you start actually queueing properly.

Oh yes, and I don't really know why photo ops are cheaper than autographs but it may be something to do with the fact that you have no time to talk to the guest *at all* on a photo op, maybe?

Thank you.

Why couldn't the Comic Con website explain it that clearly? Sheesh!

Hmmm *contemplates the stupid o'clock train I'd have to catch*

We were right! Hee! YES I AM SO UP FOR IT. The queue will be humungous, I think this will mean you staying over with me the night before and us getting to Earl's Court at the crack of sparrow...

Ooh, yes please, that will be fun, and means I'll get *slightly* more sleep :) There's Patrick Stewart too, so massive, massive queues! Maybe there'll be a Dom queue and a Patrick Stewart queue separately?

And BILLY!!!
