But the bog draw for me was Karen Gillan, who played Amy Pond, current companion to the 11th Doctor in Doctor Who. She was an absolute pleasure to meet and her talk was hilarious. It was a shame that some fans marred the talk by stopping Karen during a Q&A session to ask for a hug.
I was first in line for the photoshoot with Karen and the Tardis. Karen arrived and had a chat with the photographer before getting ready. I was called forward. Karen said hi, put her arm around me and we posed. Just as the photographer was about to shoot, someone yelled stop….they had forgotten the Tardis! We were told to hold position whilst it was wheeled in behind us. Fine by me! We had a laugh and a chat before moving on. A good day!
