Telly Visions Goes to Comic Con!

If it looks a little sparse around this blog for the next few days – please bear with me, I promise we’ll be back and up and running at full strength next week.

Why so quiet, you may ask? Well, I’m off to the infamous San Diego Comic Con in the morning! It’s very exciting – this will be my second official SDCC and while I’m technically going for fun once again this year, there’s no reason that I still can’t report back to everyone about all the relevant and exciting Brit-related news from this year’s convention.

Panels and screenings that might be of interest to you all that I’m going to do my best to attend:

Screening of CBS’ new Sherlock Holmes adaptation Elementary and panel Q&A with Jonny Lee Miller, Lucy Liu and more. Takes place Thursday evening.

The Hobbit panel with Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Peter Jackson and more. Takes place Saturday afternoon.

The Nerdist podcast live event with Torchwood’s John Barrowman. Takes place Friday night.

Doctor Who panel with Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner. Takes place Sunday, mid-afternoon

There’s also a Merlin panel happening which is, yet again, unfortunately scheduled so that it conflicts with Doctor Who. We’ll see if I can swing it though. The full schedule is here - if you have suggestions for things you’d like me to try and cover (no promises, but if I can, I’ll see if I can swing it!), let me know.

If you're interested you can keep up with the action as happens on Twitter either here or here. Keep your fingers crossed that my phone battery lasts a good long while. (Either that or I luck into an open power outlet fairly often; that's the real unicorn of SDCC!)

We’ll be back to business as usual next week!
