not having been to one of these before does that mean you have to buy the dvd there to get the wristband :?:

Not going to be able to get on here much the next few days so just wanted to say have a good time on Monday to everyone who's going.

I hope that Julian makes it for you - give him a hug from me; I'm sure there's someone who will oblige! :wink:

Looking forward to all the reports afterwards.

Enjoy yourselves!

Just back :D Our boy did turn up and was lovely as ever, although he had a bit of a cold. Pippa, and Karl were there from the start and Tamsin turned up almost at the very end - we had already been for a drink and just went back to check and there she was, so we queued up again :)

Will post properly tomorrow, as I'm sure will all the others.

Just sitting at my desk smiling away for all of you that had your JRT fix yesterday. Can't wait to read the details and see the photos. Were you all next to each other in the queue?

Slightly concerned that when I was talking to Pippa who seemed to know my slightly strange spelling of Emm he'd already recognised me and shouted Hello and asked me how I was . Hoping it's not cos he's warned his lawyers about a stalker :roll:

Explain to him about mini ruining my last photo so he threw himself over the desk to give me a hug and pose for another one. Both Julian and Pippa said that they hoped Baggie had a nice holiday and signed hers for me as well. He also told me not to let Jake near the camera again!!


By which point Karl had already signed the dvd's so really didn't get much of a chance to speak to him.


They were all lovely as usual , my JRT obsession has reappeared and I found myself watching the DVD when I got home at 1am ( bloody british rail my train from london was delayed so I could have waited to see Tamsin but luckily the conecting train was also delayed so still managed to catch it)

Lovely to see you all looking forward to the next one, if only we could come up with a devious plan to get a certain fraise blonde to join :wink: us :wink:

Bear in mind that I talk about the new deleted scenes and DVD extras as well so if you don't want to be spoiled don't read the bottom half!

Alrght... I've just got back today so I thought I'd put my account of the day on:


Oh wow. That was so mint. Well worth skipping school for (but don't tell my History teacher! ha ha!) I thought I'd write an account of the events from arriving at the store because it was so mad:

With us all being there at about four-ish we were very near the front, which was helpful. There were many people showing off their various madnesses, including my home-made GW characature T-Shirt, Annabel's shirt with character's nicknames ('Dr. Alan "Fucksees" Statham' and 'Dr. Father Martin O'Dear' being my personal favourites!), and FaerieQueen's stolen-from-a-tube banner, which all turned many a head.We all waited patiently, and occasionally a high pitched noise was heard from the front - someone keot thinking they saw something :lol:. Four people from further down the queue requested I make them each one of my T-Shirts and so we exchanged numbers :P While we were waiting, overt the radio came the song, "It's a little bit funny...." which roused much mirth from the fans as we all collapsed into fits of hysterics as we all remembered Steven's in-the-car version.
Unfortunately, Stephen was unable to come as his wife had apparently gone into labour earlier in the day and they were at the hospital. There were many ambivalent sighs mixed with "Hurray!", as noone seemed to be able to figure out whether they were dissappointed or pleased for him. :P After an interview, three of the cast came out (Pippa, Julian and Karl) and we were told Tamsin was filming so she would be late. Nevertheless, we got to the front quite quickly and I was excessively pleased when as soon as i came around the corner and pippa seen me she said, "Hi! Chocolates were fab!" and pointed at me to Julian, who agreed. I went all "ee!" and showed her my shirt, which she happily signed along with my DVD. Julian signed me too, just under my right collarbone, which was really quite funny because Faeriequeen asked me if i'd take a photo of her and Karl and I cheekily replied, "Yeah, sure, just as soon as Julian's finished with my chest." to much laughter. One of the press photographers got a close up of this, which i must locate.

They all signed our stuff, Julian also signed a birthday card for my friend Kate, which owns, and we left and headded for the Cheers bar just down the road for a drink and something to eat. Half of us had ordered, but Kim went back, and then Gaby got a phonecall: "Tamsin's here! Come back!" which was handy as I'd just realised I'd run out of money. Some of us went back while the others ate. Julian seen us in the queue again and we noticed him point us out to Tamsin and mothing the words, "They were here before. I think they've come back for you!" which was right.Annabel discussed with Pippa which area of Devon she lived in and we were talking about theatre. Tamsin was very impressed with my T-Shirt and the chocolates i gave her and didn't have to be asked to write "Thank you choccy, love tamsin greig" on my abdomen. She also signed my Black Books series 2 DVD because Dylan has already signed my first one and hopefully Bill will sign series 3 next month. Muahaha. Karl Theobald gave me and Gaby doughnuts. Which was totally random.
Tamsin said she was very impressed with my shirt and said, "If i had one i would wear it. Can I have one?" and so I'm going to make her one and send it to her agent, whos name is apparently Sally Hope.
Apparently, Steve's wife gave birth sometime during the signing and Pippa told us he'd named the little boy Harry James, which is cute. Figures he's probably going to grow up v. cute and successful in the TV industry. =P

So all around an excellent and very eventful day. Have I missed anything out?

Also - read your account, FQ - nice one! I haven't managed to get around to watching the extras yet, but am going to.

And,
Also, WTF @ Steve & the llama right at the end?! Lolololol!

Was it by any chance a stuffed white llama? because there was a girl at the signing last night with a stuffed llama, which i though was really weird... XD

Great Report Lucy/Link but can I just say Pippa & I ( ooh on first name basis some might say?!) both live in Dorset not Devon!!


I shall post my report just as soon as I have sorted out the photos from last night.....but I will say this my "GW" afternoon/evening started early as Pippa was on the same train as me....totally random but also a good sign I thought.
..so I'll report back, in full, in a bit!
