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 now believe that there is only an extremely slim chance of RDXI being made this year or early next – a real shame of course because any semblance of momentum produced by RDX will just evaporate.

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.

SciFi by the Sea at Herne Bay was incredibly busy and unfortunately I didn’t have anytime to look around at the wide range of displays and themes in attendance.

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

July 19th and 20th – MCM Comic Con Manchester
August 30th – Collectormania Sheffield Arena
September 7th – Norcon
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
