I’ve been a sci-fi fan for most of my life. I’m not sure when I fell in love with the genre, but I know by the time I was in high school and with a driver’s license, I was driving my friends to sci-fi conventions in and around Los Angeles.
Today was the first time I attended a sci-fi convention dedicated to Doctor Who. Gallifrey One.
It’s a small convention in the Marriott next to LAX with attendance is capped to around 3,000 people. From what I can tell, it’s a really well run con. There wasn’t a moment where I felt like I was being ignored or mistreated. I like it a lot.
Things I purchased that I didn’t need: a book completely unrelated to Doctor Who, Sherlock Series 1 soundtrack, Arthur Darvill’s autograph.
On a side note, I forgot to ask Arthur Darvill if he was going to be in the West End production of Once when I was getting his autograph. Oops.
