Nine Worlds 2015: Day One

August 7th, 2015 (09:33 pm)

I'm again commuting into Nine Worlds at Heathrow from west London, which makes me a sort of three-day visitor rather than a fully immersed attendee, but one still feels caught up in everything even if one isn't in costume, except perhaps as oneself. I've encountered several friends from several times and corners of my life, of course... Some chatty Doctor Who panels and a Joss Whedon talk have been attended as well as the expression of genius that was Star Trek Pictionary. Fatigue led me to abandon a further panel and head east via the petrol station, the car having been employed as a faster (if not cheaper) way of getting to Heathrow than the Piccadilly Line.

I'm glad you went after all and are enjoying it. Be sure to write lots about it here for those of us who can't be there!

If I'm awake..! Eve Bennett's talk on the weaponising of women in Joss Whedon's work (including Agents of SHIELD) explored in detail a theme I knew was present (very evident in Buffy and Firefly) but hadn't thought about further. The science of Doctor Who panel leaves less with me about science as such, but the way a lot of older male fans read 'old' Who as about science and see all the relationship stuff as new; Simon Guerrier reminded them about The Green Death which is substantially (he argues) about the Doctor-Jo relationship.

Yes! So am I... being in places with large numbers of people can often be difficult as it becomes a struggle to make conversation, but I did manage...

There's so much to choose from, and sometimes it's very difficult...
