Event Report by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)
London’s biggest con is back and bigger than ever. There were stalls galore, the original 66 Batmobile flanked by the Bat boat and bike (a bittersweet reminder the late great Adam West was due to attend), a cosplay stage and talks both paid and unpaid throughout the 3 days of the event ran by Showmasters and held once again at London Olympia on 28th – 30th July 2017.

Spoiler free !!!!
Following 2015’s continuation of the Star Wars Saga The Force Awakens comes the second Disney-produced Star Wars film.
This is the first in a new series of ‘stand-alone’ Star Wars ‘Anthology’ films which will tie-in with the existing universe but not form part of the main story saga. With that being said the events of Rogue One are set directly before Star Wars Episode IV – A New Hope.
