As no models have been announced yet, any chance of Jessica Jane Clement from the Real Hustle? She'd have some television credentials as well and could probably get some other of the Real Hustle team to join her perhaps... Wishful thinking on my part maybe? :)

Good idea on the 30th anniversary of ONLY FOOLS & HORSES to have a reunion of beloved cast, but either (or even both) of the 'Big Two' would be awesome as well!

Good selection of guests so far, please do keep them coming, and interspersed with guests from the USA shows too.

V happy so far! :D

No, suppose not. in other words more repeat performances. Come on, please, people keep offering suggestions every year and we seem to get the same people over and over and over again. What was last year? Oh yeah, some anniversary of 'Allo 'Allo, what can we expect for next year? An anniversary of Prisoner Cell Block H?
Please, please, please give us loyal memorabiliacs a reason to come in these hard economic times. please give us someone who is CURRENTLY on TV in an American Genre show. I know you've got the bloke who plays Rory in Doctor Who, but even then it's only on sunday.... but come one MCM give us what we want, or at least someone who has been in a show in the last year or so. We have seen the OFAH cast and the Allo Allo cast and the Prisoner cast over and again.
I have been a loyal visitor to the memorabilia since the very first show back in the day, and I have seen it steadily decline. What happened to the promises we had last year of MCM making some BIG changes this year?????
Here's hoping and dreaming and.......... :(


Whats wrong with Only Fools And Horses?

Please explain to my why this reunion would not be current, considering it is 30 years and that the BBC feel it is big enough to film a special documentary that will air aswell.

We cant please everyone all of the time but I for one am looking forward to mmeting the cast as I know there will be others from the show yet to be announced.

As for Prisoner and Cell Block H they are still extremly popular with a very healthy following wihich was proved when they last attended, expecially in the case of the Allo Allo Reunion.

Memorabilia is about diversity and yes we do bring in US guests and will continue to do so.

Can I suggest the cast of Merlin? Seeing as the show will be airing at the time (and I've still yet to meet any of them lol).

I don't know how Memorabilia is for voice actors, but I'd love to see Jennifer Hale there. Especially with her in the upcoming finale to the Mass Effect trilogy as 'FemShep :)
I know where my towel is.

obiyoda wrote:Okay, let's get this into perspective shall we? If you're going to quote me, at least read it first. I didn't say anything was wrong of OFAH, for its time it was good, same with Allo Allo and the same with Prisoner Cell Block H(sort of), what I am saying is that these people have been here time and again and it's time for some fresh guests. If you look at the other collectors fairs/conventions then you will see that they weigh the guests up well with a very good assortment of older guests and newer talent from such shows as Supernatural/Fringe/ SGU etc etc. This is obviously what your customers want from what has been said on here nearly every single time. All we want is some diversity in the guest list. We want to see people we haven't seen before, like Derek Jacobi (good choice there), and the bloke who plays Rory from Doctor Who(ditto- but obviously it would be nice to see the main two there as well). you've had Brett Hart recently, you've had two members of the Merling cast, we know you CAN do it, and it is still early so there is time. As for the comment about the BBC, what I meant so cryptically by that comment was not only the repeat stature of the guests, but that it seems lazy to have the same people over and again .
Hopefully my comments will be read and inwardly digested and if we are lucky even acted upon(?) I will still turn up in November regardless, but please give us what we want!


I'm a bit confused, are you saying that MCM haven't booked people from the shows I've highlighted? For London Expo, MCM have booked guests from SGU and from Fringe - Alaina Huffman, Jamil Walker Smith, John Noble and Jasika Nicole.
"...two members of the Merlin cast" - Colin Morgan, Bradley James, Angel Coulby and Katie McGrath have all attended the London show within the last few years.
Main cast members from Eureka and Warehouse 13 have also attended London Expo. Both are popular and modern shows.

Different guests are booked to cater for tastes at different shows - maybe you'd find the London event more suited to you? This year Memorabilia is also being held in London at the same time as Expo with the opportunity to attend both shows. Keep an eye on http://www.londonexpo.com and http://www.memorabilia.co.uk/london for updates :)

I believe they where actually on about the NEC event NOT the London Expo. Also THIS years Memorabilia is STILL at the NEC just that there is also an additional Memorabilia event which is in London.

Also not everyone can get to London especially at the cost of public transportation from the North of The Watford Gap.


Anyway how about:

Some of the Cast from Back to The Future including: Christpher Lloyd as he does appear to have started doing a few events of late in the UK and Beyond.

I am aware of that - I said that "...Memorabilia is also being held in London...". I was also aware they were talking about Birmingham as I suggested that London may be more their thing.

whome3000 wrote:Also not everyone can get to London especially at the cost of public transportation from the North of The Watford Gap.


I understand that, it was just a suggestion in case the poster was unaware that guests more suited to their tastes had attended MCM events elsewhere in the country.

We dignified it with the answer that we felt it required by deleting it!

For your information MEMORABILIA Birmingham is here to stay and we feel the likes of Derek Jacobi and Arthur Darvill to name but a few are good calibre guests.

Anthony Daniels is unable to do Birmingham as he will be in America, we invited him but he can not make it.

The fact that he can not make it, does not mean that Memorabilia Birmingjam is going anywhere!

Pease refrain from further posts as the one deleted.

We had already spoken to Shawn Michaels management before he was approached by the wrestling promotion.

It is no suprise it folded with the sort of money that he was asking for.

Be great to have him but not at the cost he wants.

I'm guessing it would blow the guest budget, but talking of anniversaries - its also the 45th anniversary of Star Trek this year. Have anyone from any of the series been approached to see if they can attend?

bolo yeung, bolo yeung, bolo yeung please get him would be a great guest how popular was John saxon a few years ago. I am sure Bolo would pull a massive crowd with him being in two of the best martial arts films in Enter the dragon and Bloodsport.
