We did indeed. Thanks, Dug. :D

The trailers were amazing, ramtopsman. Can't wait for these thing to come out on release. :clap:

Last day of the Con tomorrow :( but had a lovely little chat with Terry this evening which eases the blow. And it was fun to meet up with Jan, Mad, Penners, Dotsie, Sjoerd, mC and Tino for the first time. :D :D
If all is not lost, then where is it?

Not a trailer unfortunately but a mood reel, clips of films put together to give a feel of how the production will look. So it's not even been cast yet, but it looks like they're after having some international names & big budget special effects 8-)
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

No - and the bar ran out of at least one beer/cider/lager EVERY SINGLE DAY! Once at lunchtime... :roll: :P

More later on - am seriously crashing out from late of sleep and dehydration and can barely type here (and I hardly got squiffy at all :whistle: )

I only got back a couple of hours ago (around 9:15ish) since my coach was delayed getting into Birmingham by about an hour (don't know why). This caused me to miss my connection at London Victoria Station for the last Worthing coach. National Express was great tho, they put me on the next coach to Brighton and got me a taxi from there to my house in Worthing free of charge (about £30 fare) - no fuss or bother around this, only apologies for it happening. :D

The really big stir at the Con was the bar constantly running out of booze. Someone, one of the guests (don't know who), commented DW fans drink like a rugby crowd and party like chess players! ;) :lol:

I am in alcohol profit!

Rob very kindly gave Mandy & I a bottle of Hendricks each to say thank you for all the help we've given him and Terry and then Terry gave the whole committee a bottle of Champagne each!

PS we did drink the bar out of Hendricks at least once though...

Honestly. Trust you. You couldn't have gone for Gordon's could you?

Cucumber and rose?
