James and I went to Gallifrey One for the first time last weekend! I wish there had been more guests from the new Doctor Who, but we still saw a lot of people that we love and had a lot of fun. I got in line early on Friday and Sunday (James had to work for the first half of Friday) and got the front row for room A on both days. Taking photos is usually my favorite part of any convention, and getting the front row allowed me to get really great photos. Naturally, John Barrowman was the most fun guest to photograph. He walked around the stage for the whole hour doing handsome and hilarious faces and poses. I’ve only just started going through my photos, and I know his are going to be the hardest to sort!
The photos I’ve posted so far (and eventually the whole set) can be found here.
I didn’t get any autographs or photo ops. I would have liked a photo with John Barrowman, but photo ops are really expensive, so I have a short list of people I’ll spend the money on if I get an opportunity. For Doctor Who, it would be David Tennant and Billie Piper.
Here are a few photos from the weekend. I was very happy to finally buy a Ten, a Rose, and a K-9! They all live on my desk now.
