At CT 2005 Gary Russell remarked that Paul wanted to wait five years before attending another US con. The last one he attended on this side of the pond was CT2004.

Here's what Jennifer Adams Kelley (of Programming and Publicity) wrote today on the chicagotardis yahoo list (chicagotardis@yahoogroups.com):

Before we get into the guest bit, we wanted to let you know that, because of the current awful condition of the economy, we will be maintaining our pre-December 31 pre-reg prices throughout the year. That means, admission prices WILL NOT CHANGE until right before the event. We want to make as affordable as possible to get into the convention. The convention will make up the revenue shortfall by charging for autos/photos as needed.

And now, what you've been waiting for: a guest! Get your squee on, 'cause we're thrilled to announce the return of

PAUL MCGANN!!!!!!!

The Eighth Doctor will be in the house to help us celebrate our 10th Anniversary!

There will be an autograph charge for Paul (which will be determined much closer to the convention); however, photographs will be free with your own camera, or $25 if you purchase an 8 x 10 taken by our professional photography staff.

Look for more guest announcements after Gallifrey.


Very, very, very cool news. Very Happy

Yes, this IS very, very cool news, isn't it?

P.S. Yes, I noticed that you added to my original title of just GAAAAHHHH!!!!, Estelle. Guess you thought it needed a bit of clarification, right? Smile

Yes, I'm guilty of editing your title. You beat me in posting this great news about Paul coming to CT. Smile

Anyway, do you think you'll make it to the con?

I mentioned this on the LJ community, but I have this ... magical convention power.

There's a convention called Otakon in Baltimore that I hate. People have been trying to get me to go to it, and I finally said I'd only go if they got JAM Project (basically five big-name anime song performers who formed a band). This was ridiculously unlikely since it's essentially signing five overseas headliners, and honestly, I would follow this band to a place I hate just to see 'em.

And this past summer ... they got JAM Project on their only US tour stop.

Now I don't like Chicago, and a friend's been trying to get me out to CT, and this past November I said I'd only go if Paul was a guest. Again, seemed rather unlikely.

So this is like the second time I've summoned an overseas guest with the power of really not wanting to go somewhere. Laughing

I guess this means I'm going ... eh? Embarassed That said, if I do, I shall be having a room party if I can get away with it! Very Happy

We'll be going if:

A. I can get the money. I have no more backpay miracles happening, so it'll be a job getting the cash. Sad
B. I can find someone safe and trustworthy to look after the "little one".
C. We're still stuck in the US! Becuase if we do get our finances seriously sorted out--we're out of here and back home to London. *I have some promising leads Smile*

Well, I went on and made my reservation - the All Access stuff is already gone so I was afraid to wait any longer. Hope someone is going to join me there - I'm going to need some major support if I'm to get through this! Shocked

I'm also planning to go, barring any sudden disruptions to my plans. I look forward to meeting up with my McGanned buds. Very Happy

Michelle, it would be so, so cool if you and Sam would come, too! Chicago is definitely a fun city to visit.

I'll add my gentle persuasion to that as well! I'm looking forward to seeing everyone as much as I'm looking forward to meeting Paul and to see the UberPaulBabes from the UK would be sooo fantastic!

Looking like my friend Emily and I will be roadtripping if all goes well. (Oh, this should be entertaining.)

I haven't told Sam or Ali yet and don't know if it would be doable for them but I'd be lying if I said I hadn't been checking flight costs etc last night Laughing

It'd be great to meet up with you guys and I think we'd party pretty good - so Teri, see what you can do and I'll do my best from my end!

Least it gives me some time to save up..... oh, and mention it to my husband!!!

Last year I was going to see one or other of the brothers every month and it's been a lot quieter this year so that (and my excuse for everything at the minute that it's my 40th this year!) added to which it'll be just after Paul's 50th, could help my cause Very Happy
