Blake’s 7’ was one of those BBC Sci-Fi shows that was awesome, great writing and great characters; even though the sets and props were clearly flimsy.

Jacqueline Pearce moved back to the UK from South Africa in 2015. Her character of ‘Servalan’, ‘The Supreme Commander’ of The Federation, was always mesmerising.

Even though Manchester is a distance away from me, I could not miss out on the opportunity of meeting Jacqueline. 

Showmasters, haven’t had a Manchester event since.

But do visit their site for information on other Comic Con venues, Showmasters Events.

“What the frell !” - Swindon Comic Con 2016 Sat 4th June

Swindon’s first Comic Con held a treat for me.

Farscape’ character ‘Pa’u Zotoh Zhaan’, Virginia Hey was attending. Virginia was very easy to talk to, and I was chatting to her for nearly two hours.  

I found out the reason to her leaving ‘Farscape’. It was due to her body taking a toll to the chemicals used in the make-up to create ‘Zhaan’. It was the hardest thing she done.

The event took place at Swindon’s STEAM Museum.

Currently, there is no website for Swindon Comic Con.
