I am back home after a great vacation in London. I prefer hearing the actor’s talk and photo op/autographs second. Ben is great on stage yet I understand the financial draw of the second. I am surprised at the fans who rate the autograph time highest. I guess I am cynical—even Ben who is very gracious can’t remember every person! Many people I spoke to assumed San Diego Comic Con means photo ops/autographs with all the guests. It is more marketing products than fan interaction. There are signings etc but nothing like at the smaller comic cons. The talk at the LFCC gave us new info such as Ben attended London Central School of Speech and Drama with Chris Eccleston, the 9th Doctor (and my modern favorite).
Here are Action John’s new photos:
