So I got a phone call today from one of the reps from Hurricane Who (a Dr. Who themed convention taking place October 30th-November 1st this year.) On my voice mail, I was informed that my post about Gareth David-Lloyd at MegaCon is (allegedly) wrong. It all gets kind of confusing, which means it’s time for bullet points:
- Gareth David-Lloyd of “Dr. Who” and “Torchwood” fame is going to be at MegaCon at the end of this month… but not as a guest of MegaCon.
- FX International announced on their website (www.fxshow.com) last week that Gareth will be hosted as a guest at the FX table at MegaCon.
- Hurricane Who (www.hurricanewho.com) announced on their website last week that Gareth would be at a Thursday night gathering at an Orlando pub. There is an additional ticket fee of $20 for that… though I am wondering how you enforce that in a public bar.
- A representative from Hurricane Who called and left a message on my cell phone that Gareth would NOT be at the FX Booth – but in fact at a comic store’s booth. I have put in a call asking for the rep to email me information.
- No information is on the Hurricane Who website regarding any of the info in the aforementioned call.
- I have contacted a rep from FX International who informed me that Gareth David-Lloyd is still scheduled to appear at their table at MegaCon.
I can only assume that I will get some sort of email or phone call in the next day or so clearing all this up.
