I've just noticed the 2016 calendar on amazon. Same price as last years, 10.99 plus p+p. The photos aren't rare though. I do miss those classic old calendars made by Slow dazzle, which were crammed with rare photos.

I think Piers has a calendar on his site that can be self printed.

Am I alone in being underwhelmed by this year's calendar Question 5 of the 12 main photos are of jigsaws and games. Rolling Eyes I won't be getting this one. I'm so glad I kept those Slow dazzle calendars. They are beautiful to look at, crammed with loads of rare shots. Cool

I can see what they're trying to do - expand the image selection by expanding out from the show - but I suspect fans would prefer more photos of the cast.

Great use of Shaqui Le Vesconte's illustrations, I hope they paid well for them.

I tell you what, you put back your 400 pixel wide avatar that completely screws up anyone trying to read the forum on a small screen. Personally I don't give a damn any more, I'm tired of the abuse that gets banded about here these days, sadly it has become a very unAvengerland place to be.

Bye

Sad

Indeed, a huge improvement on the last few. I would have liked a bit more variety in the picture selection (not that I really need it!)

I hope they have approached Shaqui over the use of his illustrations. The buggers certainly haven't contacted me.

Have checked with Shaqui. He's not been approached, so the artwork has been used without permission.

Flagrant copyright theft.

I am trying to track the company down. They appear somewhat elusive.
