MeCon again

A shorter visit today.

I did attend the Doctor Who - Then and Now panel:

..the panellists being doyle_sb4 and xxipuloxx. Much happier with this pic than with yesterday's taken in the same room (not uploaded).

Back in the bar I was intrigued by the architecture which had our cosy table conversation being overseen by three chomping authors, and got wiselamb to immortalise the moment:

Above: John Reppion; C.E. Murphy; Leah Moore
Below: sciamanna's shoulder; annafdd; myself.

The to finish the experience, the convention guests en bloc invaded one of the final panels and took it over as a collective syndicate. Unfortunately the brains of this exercise was impossible to catch with my camera from where I was sitting, but you can work out who it was from this picture of the other suspects looking at him:

John Reppion; the unfortunate chairman whose session was invaded; Iain M Banks; Alistair Reynolds; Ian McDonald
back of C.E. Murphy's head; Leah Moore in profile

It was great fun, and I did manage to get a decent shot of one part of the audience reacting:

Caroline and slimmeroftheyea - both their other halves were on the panel, but they appear to be listening to John Reppion's anecdote about his toilet and Jonathan Ross (you had to be there really).

And so home again. Thanks to captainlucy, xxipuloxx, h0pal0ng and wiselamb once more.
