Erica, my wife, has produced about ten Doctor Who conventions under the aegis of her production name, Fanslikeus. For the past couple of years they’ve been at The Hilbre pub in West Kirby, where we live. Any proceeds go to cancer charities following Erica’s mum having her own brush with cancer a while back (all going well so far).
This is the write-up we got in the local press. Incidentally, the way this worked is that they sent a photographer down and asked me to write the copy, which they then cut to length. They cut out some nasty remark I made likening the local council to the Daleks, but Erica got on the front cover so I didn’t complain too bitterly.
