June 1990~ Doctor Who Guilford Con

My first proper convention was a Doctor Who con in Guilford.

I had booked tickets for my younger brother and I a few weeks before.

The week before the con my brother broke his wrist and was in a cast. We were still determined to go.

We set off early to Guilford, and eventually found our way to the school where it was being held. We queued for a while to get in, and, once in began to look around the prop exhibition.

We were excited to be there as Frazer Hines (Jamie) and Sophie Aldred (Ace) were there and would be doing a talk and autographs etc.

It was  then that trouble started. My brothers arm began to swell and he was in pain. We decided to leave early and head home. The organisers were kind enough to let us meet Sophie Aldred first and grab a quick picture.
