Hello one and all,

Thanks as ever for all your emails and apologies for not responding as promptly as I would like. Hopefully I will reply eventually but it may take some time. I should mention that Gordon Brittas made a contribution to the Little Mix ‘Word up’ music video for Sports Relief 2014. This is a charity well worth supporting and you can see the video at:


Not entirely unconnected with this is the recent release of The Brittas Empire DVD box set. So here is your opportunity to re-familiarise yourself with the chainsaw voiced leisure centre manager from hell and, of course, the other well crafted characters from the series.

I had a very enjoyable time at MCM Comic Con Belfast. The atmosphere was excellent throughout and the people were wonderfully enthusiastic. I look forward to returning next year.

MCM Comic Con Manchester was also very busy, so busy in fact that I didn’t have enough time to wonder into the former train shed and take in the glory of that magnificent building. Maybe next time…

Over the next few months I shall be attending the following events with probably a few more dates to be added:

August 30th – Collectormania Sheffield Arena
September 7th – Norcon
September 21st – Doncaster Comic-Con
October 4th – Def Con II
October 11th – Play Manchester
October 18th – Collectormania London
October 25th – Chippenham Sci-Fi Event in the Neeld Hall
November 15th – Collectormania Milton Keynes
November 30th – Wales Comic Con – Wrexham

Best wishes

Chris Barrie
