Sixth Sense

Sixth Sense
George IV Public House and Comedy Club


I was fortunate in that this convention, 'celebrating 25 years of Colin Baker as the Doctor' was on during my recent trip to London.

Fantom Films have an established record of enjoyable events. With tickets limited to 60, their conventions have an intimate feel about them. There were several Q&A panels throughout the day, followed by signing sessions. Several of the guests were making their convention debuts, so the whole day had a very fresh feel to it.

The format of the day worked very well. Sometimes at conventions, one has to miss bits of the panels in order to attend the signings but here there was no clash of interests as the signings had their own time slots between the panels. A very sensible arrangement, but it probably wouldn't work, time-wise, for conventions dealing with greater numbers.

The venue was fine and there were plenty of eating places, coffee shops and the like very close by.

The main focus of attention fell on the various parts of 'Trial of a Timelord' and 'Timelash'.
