And speaking of Doctor Who, I have never seen the Doctor and his mythology so represented by fans at a sci-fi convention. I mean, there were people in TARDIS costumes, fercryinoutloud! Those were mostly ladies in blue dresses bedecked with windows and the "Police Box" plaque on the door. There were literally dozens of guys in Eleventh Doctor costumes (including not a few red fezzes), along with a healthy dose of Fourth Doctors, a number of Tenth Doctors and at least two Ninth Doctors. For the first time in my life I saw a First Doctor costume, a Third Doctor getup and a Seventh Doctor (he even had the umbrella). I have to say: it was quite refreshing to be at a convention where the quantity of Doctors vastly outnumbered that of Starfleet officers, Jedi Knights and vampires.
But anyhoo, yesterday morning Kristen and I got to attend "Breakfast with the Doctor" in the hotel restaurant. This was something with very limited attendance but Kristen pounced upon tickets for it as soon as they went on sale.
Here she is with Davison...
And here I am with Davison on Saturday afternoon. He even signed my DVD of "Earthshock" (which he told us in a panel discussion on Friday was his most memorable Doctor Who story)...
And did I tell you that there were Doctor Who costumes at Mysticon or what? Here's me with one of Kristen's friends. She made a crazy awesome Weeping Angel costume that would be hard to keep your eyes off even if the Angels weren't quantum-locked homicidal maniacs!

Chris Knight, who forgot that one must NEVER take his eyes
off of a Weeping Angel.
And a good time was had by all :-)
