I don't suppose anyone got their names? The first i knew of them was on the Sunday morning having learnt they had put up a memorabilia stall in the area set aside for John Buss's collection. They hadn't asked me if they could do this and probably explains why they were nowhere to be seen on Sunday.


No, I'm afraid not Jaz...but did they pay up?????

A nice man, who had accompanied these two men in town after the Hellfire Club, told me the morning after all this information (father having lots of money because of his cars etc...). That man was the only one who wasn't drunk and stayed reasonable in the cab. Moreover, I think he's the one you mentioned Jaz, because he was the owner of the memorabilia he had provided to the University for the convention (he had even worked with Linda Thorson ten years ago, on a play).

It's a shame to learn that they weren't even Avengers fans. I just hope that they DID actually pay the money before receiving the auction goodies - it was for charity after all.

I have to wonder what a couple of non Avengers fans were doing spending the evening in the Chichester University Students Union ! Confused

Did anyone who went to the Celebration hear Marie Cameron talk? She helped Pat write his autobiography and they were apparently close for awhile. I'd love to hear a summary of what she had to say.

Were Brian Clemens and Linda Thorson on speaking terms at the convention?

A rather curious fact actually. Brian never spoke to Linda during the interview (one of them was with Linda and some of the producers). Linda asked for Brian's opinion once but he replied without looking at her directly. Odd... Confused

Yes it is really quite silly this tension still exist between them. It was over 40 years ago.

They both made important contributions to the show and they both have their fans and detractors-like in real life. It's time to move on.

To Linda's defense, I'd say--again--that I don't share Brian Clemens' views on her. If she was selected, that's because SHE was perfect for the part (some rumors, that I won't refer to, and I don't want to believe that rubbish anyway, pretended Linda had obtained the job thanks to her relation with Bryce Crying or Very sad ). Those rumors were just the words expressed by anti-tara groups (Shame some as.... exist).

Linda had to stay in the Avengers and it's certainly NOT her fault if the series didn't continue for its 7th season. ABC should have found another time slot (10pm like the first episodes broadcast in the US) to let the show survive.

That's all I have to say.

Yes, it was me ! Smile
I had written a longer message in fact. I had sent this email for the 'thank you segment' at the origin. Nevertheless, the main information was given. I spent the best weekend ever, it was a 'Dream', really, with great fans to meet.

Nearly a month, can you believe it ? Shocked

After playing a song, Paul mentioned my message again as I recall and it had to do with the photos that I took at the Hellfire Club, also when Ray offered him the 50th anniversary book.

Well I've also sent an email to him thanking him for all he's done for The Avengers - I also sent him a photo of a bus-stop showing a poster of his second book alongside the pub where he used to work in Liverpool. If that doesn't get me a mention then nothing will Confused

You might have chance if you sent your message very early. Mine was sent last Monday at 4am (I wasn't sleeping).
Maybe it will help in such circumstances. Wink
I wish you good luck ! Smile
