Doctor Who S9E7 - "The Zygon Invasion" Recap


Osgood and the Zygon duplicate of her explain to viewers about the peace treaty signed between the human race and the Zygons. These events took place during the Day of the Doctor. They have become linked as a result and refer to each other as sisters. Through Operation Double, UNIT implemented a plan to relocate all Zygons into the human population by having them take the place of the duplicates of Britain. The 'sisters' have the "Osgood Box" which will e used if the ceasefire breaks; this is known as the Nightmare Scenario.

One Osgood is in a desert town and running away from the Zygons. She texts the Doctor with the message "Nightmare Scenario" before being zapped and taken captive by a Zygon. After receiving the message, the Doctor calls Clara but only gets her voicemail. In present day Britain, the Doctor tracks down the two commander Zygons at a school playground as they have taken on the form of two primary school girls. He pleads with them to not break the ceasefire but negotiations stall when another Zygon arrives, throws a smoke bomb and captures the two commanders.

Clara returns to her apartment and finds that she has 127 missed cals from the Doctor. She is going to call him back but then sees a boy on the stairs who is looking for his parents. She helps the boy get back to his apartment and the father takes him away kicking and screaming. Both the father and mother are exhibiting strange behaviour.

Clara meets up with the Doctor and together they go to UNIT where they learn that when one Osgood died, the other was overcome by grief. The ceasefire had started to break down. They receive a video message from the Zygons who are shown to force the primary school girl-Zygons to resume their normal form before they are destroyed.

The Doctor decides to go to Turmezistan to find the missing Osgood and keep UNIT from bombing and destroying it. Clara will keep looking after the ongoings in England, while Kate will head off to New Mexico to visit their stateside base. Unfortunately, the military members that are tasked with taking down the alien hostiles are overcome when the Zygons take on the appearance of the military members' loved ones. The Doctor is able to find Osgood trapped in a basement and frees her. Osgood warns that the Zygons are headed back to England.

Kate is being lead around a ghost town in New Mexico by a sheriff and observing the remains of dead Zygons in dumpsters that have been reduced to stacks of hair-balls.

Clara discovers a hive of Zygon duplicates that have been grown... except that's not how Zygons work. They kidnap the originals, so the Clara we've been watching for most of the episode is her Zygon duplicate. When Clara went to help the young boy, she was zapped and her duplicate took her place.

The Doctor and Osgood are questioning a Zygon and begin to piece together everything that has been happening. Meanwhile, Kate realises that the sheriff she has been led around with is actually a Zygon and is attacked and swapped out for a duplicate. Duplicate-Clara calls the Doctor and informs him that Clara and Kate are dead, before shooting a bazooka at the plane he is flying in on.

Doctor Who airs on Saturdays on BBC One.

Grimm S05E01 Recap: The Grimm Identity

Last season we left Nick in a bad place, a knocked up hexenbiest, a beheaded mother, a dead girlfriend, and that's where we find Nick, still holding the slain Juliette. Trubel had no choice, but to shoot her or she would have killed Nick, but that didn't make her death any easier for Nick. The little group of covert agents stormed the house, grabbed Trubel and drugged Nick.


Flash forward to her funeral. Am I the only one that's truly glad she's gone? It's swathed in black and white, and Nick isn't doing so hot. Between Juliette's death, and his mother's, he's being haunted. He sees his mother's head in a box everywhere, and its in technicolor. His house is one of horrors, with coffins and boxes everywhere. He finds himself waking on the floor, but reliving what happened. Thankfully the coffins and head boxes are gone. He panics, searching for Trubel, when Nick calls. He thinks he was drugged as he tells Hank about Juliette being dead, and Trubel being taken. So not a flash forward, and no funeral? Boo. Mark my words Juliette will be back, and she'll still suck. Hank tells him to stay put, and Nick continues to relive the moments of Juliette's death.


Rosalee can't sleep, she's got Nick on her brain,but not in the super sexy way most of us do. She's worried about the baby that will come sooner rather than later. Nick calls asking if Monroe and Rosalee have seen her. He tells them that Trubel has been taken, that his mother's head is missing, and that Juliette is dead. It's a lot to take in and of course they focus on the last bit, unbelieving of their ears.


Nick continues to search his house in a panic for Trubel. He tries to piece together where she could be, and concludes that Chavez must have her, it wouldn't be the first time that she kidnapped Trubel. Hank arrives, and he gets the news of Juliette's demise as well. Nick is in a panic, going over everything with Hank, and the story sounds a little insane, but then again its a pretty normal Grimm day. He tells Hank how Chavez is part of a secret government group that wants to go after Wesen, that she's kidnapped Trubel before, and the last time that she tested him, he wasn't a Grimm, so she has no clue that he is one. Hank tries to poke holes in his theory, but Nick is fully cocked and ready to take her down, no matter her FBI status.


The captain gets the good news that their “Jack the Ripper” has been caught. The two detectives think that Kenneth fits the profile perfectly, and he had the murder weapon on him. They tell him that he may have been stopped by some vigilantes, but the problem may be that a lawyer from Austria is already trying to get possession of the body, because he's royal. Renard tells them to wrap it up, regardless of his lineage.


Nick drives recklessly, too wrapped up in his thoughts of Chavez and her questions about Trubel.


Hank heads into work. Wu wants to talk to him about a 911 call, but there's no time. Renard gives the Mayor the good news about their Jack being caught, and promises to look into catching the vigilantes. Hank tells Renard that Nick is off the deep end. Trubel is missing, Juliette is dead. Wu and Renard are a little shocked. Juliette never got onto the plane, she tried to kill Nick, and Trubel killed her instead. Renard doesn't quite believe the story, but its the one that they're going with. Nick is sure that Chavez is behind it all, and he plans to take her down. Renard doesn't like the sound of that.


Chavez meanwhile is sitting behind her desk as if nothing out of the ordinary happened last night. She gets a note and tells the desk clerk to send Nick up.


Hank isn't sure if Nick being drugged affected his memory. Wu finally tells them about the 911 call. The couple across the street were killed, which may be connected. Renard is sure that they're connected to Nick's story. Nick wanted a background check done on Chavez, which Renard tells them to do outside of the precinct, but to find Nick first.


Nick heads into Chavez's office, as she wonders why he's there. He wants to know where Trubel is, but she plays dumb. She claims to not know where Trubel is, it could be the fact that they're being overheard by other agents. Nick confronts her about Trubel, Juliette and his mother's head. He tells her that he knows what she is and he's not going to stop. Nick is escorted out of the office, and another agent notes that he sounds crazy. Chavez got a good look at his eyes though, so she knows what he is now.


Wu reports back that no bodies have been brought in that fit Trubel's description, or even Juliette's. Wu always hoped that she would have pulled out of her hexenbeist. No heads in boxes either. But there was another body found in Nick's neighborhood, which is making his story sound more and more likely. Nick calls with an update. Chavez knows the truth. Hank hasn't found much out about Chavez yet, but tells Nick about the death of three of his neighbors, which brings Nick in.


Renard reads over the notes of Kenneth's case, when he gets a call from Chavez. She tells him that Burkhardt was in her office, acting erratically and they nearly had to arrest him. She warns him that if it happens again she'll have no choice but to toss Nick into jail. Renard does not like to be threatened.


Hank and Wu go over the kill pattern. The Royals weren't worried about collateral damage when they went after Kelly, to get Adalind's child. Renard calls Nick into his office. He doesn't like Nick's style. He should not have confronted her with so many witnesses. Nick isn't thinking, he just wants to find out who Chavez is working for. Renard wants Nick to take some time off, and he's not just suggesting it. He's not suspending him, but he wants him to stay away from Chavez. Our Grimm is about to go rogue. He leaves the office, but talking the Hank doesn't bring him any comfort. He doesn't think Hank is on his side.


Rosalee and Monroe head into the spice shop, but Rosalee is a little out of it. She can't focus on the business with everything going on. Monroe thinks they should take everything with a grain of salt since Nick sounded a little fried when he called. Rosalee is sure that Nick wouldn't mince words. The story doesn't seem to be making any sense. Hank calls and tells them that he's not sure about anything, but that he needs their help.


Nick does his own searching into Chavez, when he hears a voice. It's Juliette's, but she isn't upstairs. Maybe Nick is losing his mind. He has a mini break down.


Monroe tries to get Nick's story straight from Hank. If Nick didn't actually see Chavez, then how can he pin everything on her? Hank isn't sure, but he's willing to look in to Chavez, especially since they can't get ahold of Nick at the moment. Rosalee still can't believe that someone took Juliette's body. Nick can't even hold a funeral and gain closure from it. Monroe is just glad that Nick survived, if it had to be just one of them. Rosalee points out that this wasn't Juliette's fault, she didn't want to be a hexenbiest, but they remind her that she did embrace it, and not for the better. Rosalee is feeling way too much guilt for what happened. She was missing the old Juliette and now she's gone, without even a goodbye. Monroe points out that Nick feels responsible for Trubel, and he's focusing on this to get his mind off everything else. Wu finds Chavez's address, and Monroe offers to go, in a nonofficial capacity. Monroe decides that it would be better to go alone, while the other three continue to dig to find Chavez's connection to the government group that wants Grimms.


Chavez walks through a high security underground prison, checking in on one inmate. Meisner tells her that there have been no changes for the better. Chavez thinks they're playing with fire, but Meisner thinks they may need fire. So she's a part of the resistance? Just please someone tell me that its not Juliette behind that door.


Monroe catches up to Nick at Chavez's house. Monroe tries to remind Nick that he's been a part of Nick's Grimm world since the beginning, he was his Yoda. Nick doesn't want him to be drug into this until he knows what is going on. Nick sends Monroe away as he approaches Chavez's home.


Bud serves Adalind breakfast as he's babbles on. He thinks she's dwelling on Diana, and he thinks she should eat. But Adalind can't eat, she thinks that the baby is coming. Bud wants to call Nick, but Adalind tells him there's no time, to just get the car. Bud scurries off to do as she asks.


Wu continues to look into Chavez's background. On paper she looks normal, but they need to find something out of the ordinary. Monroe returns with the bad news. Yes he found Nick, but whatever he's doing he didn't want him involved.


Chavez returns home, and Nick is inside waiting for her. Chavez isn't going to go down without a fight. He knows she's Wesen, and he's a Grimm. He sees her warg, and that's all he needs.


Rosalee uncovers Chavez's early schooling and traveling, and her parent's deaths which would explain her desire to join the FBI, but not everything else. Nick calls the Spice Shop. He's there, with Chavez in tow. Hank cannot believe what he's done. Nick tells them all that Trubel was right, and that she is Wesen. Chavez tells him that he's made a big mistake, but his only mistake was not doing anything about her sooner. He wants to know everything, and not just what Trubel told him. Nick tells her that she saw a book on Wesens in Trubel's room, but it wasn't hers, it was his. She should have been after him, not Trubel. She wasn't trying to find out about her fellow agent, she was trying to find out if Nick was a Grimm. The pieces are starting to fall into place. Nick reveals to her that her fellow agent was working for the Royals and that was why he shot Renard. Monroe and Rosalee show their Wesen face and suggest she come clean. Chavez tells him that her life doesn't matter there's too much at stake. Someone needs to trust someone. Nick gets a call from Bud, and the news that his baby is coming. This interrogation will have to wait, Monroe promises Chavez isn't going anywhere. With Nick gone, Chavez tries to play them against him. She asks if they all knew he was a Grimm, they did. Hank thought Nick had gone over the edge, but he's not thinking that anymore.


Bud paces outside of the hospital room, as Nick is surprised to hear that Adalind is already having the baby. The nurse asks him if he's going into the delivery room. Nick hesitates, it's all happening very fast. Rosalee reminds him that the baby will need him, so will Adalind. The situation may not be ideal, but she thinks he's going to be a great dad. Nick stands by Adalind's side as she pushes. The baby's heart rate begins to drop. Adalind wants to push, but they warn her against it, they've lost the baby's heartbeat. Adalind is rushed out for an emergency c-section as Nick looks on in shock.


Hank, Wu and Monroe work to break Chavez. The truth would be terrified for most people she tells them. They just want Trubel. She can't tell them anything. Her phone begins to ring, and she warns them that if she doesn't answer it someone will come and look for her. Hank warns her that if they don't like what she's saying then they'll never find her. Hank gives her the phone, and they have to trust that she's not sending a distress signal with her thumbprint. She finally answers the phone, telling the caller that she was delayed, and wrong about Burkhardt. He is a grimm, and she's positive this time. She asks to bring him in.


At the hospital Nick worries what is taking so long. Rosalee stops him from causing any trouble. Hank calls, and puts him on the line with Chavez. She offers him this one chance to get the answers he desires, but he has to leave now. Rosalee tells him to go, that she'll stay with Adalind. Nick takes the chance.


At the Spice Shop, the guys aren't so on board with this plan. It could be a trap since they didn't get to hear the other side of her conversation. They're on borrowed time. She took Trubel once, and let her go, that's good enough for him. They plan to let the pair go for a few hours.


Chavez has Nick drive her to a remote location. Nick wants the lowdown, but Chavez has few answers. Things are happening, and they have to be prepared. Its ominous, and all the information he's getting at the moment. He follows her on into what looks like an abandoned building. Chavez is sure that they're there, but all they find are dead bodies. Chavez doesn't look so confident anymore. She tells them that they have to go, right as Nick's Grimm senses kick in, and he hears the attack seconds before it comes, knocking her to safety. Nick and Chavez fight side by side taking out the attacking Wesen. Chavez is hit by a bullet in the fight, as Nick chases the last survivor. There's a group of slashes on the building. Nick finds Chavez dying, she tells him that he can't call for an ambulance, that they're coming. War is upon them. She gives him a totem as she dies. Nick takes ringing phone from her pocket, and using her finger on the scanner. Nick tells the caller that they're all dead, that Chavez is dead. Meisner tells him to keep the phone.



Nick heads back to the hospital. The baby and Adalind are both fine. The baby was just stuck in the canal. He asks if he can go in, and Rosalee thinks that Adalind would like that. In Adalind's arms is a precious pink baby. He asks if she's okay, and she isn't sure. She didn't think that he would want to be there, and he might not want to be there, but atleast he's there. She asks him not to hate her, knows that they can't be what they where. She doesn't want to raise the baby alone, he's apart of Nick and her both. Nick isn't sure its a good thing, but he'll be there for his son. He's hesitant to hold him, but he takes his son into his arms. Adalind has already thought of a name for him, Kelly. Nick approves of the name. Nick may be focused on the baby, but the cheesy effect at the end reminds us that something is coming.

Sleepy Hollow S3E5 - "Dead Men Tell No Tales" Recap


Pandora raises General William Howe from the dead, a man whom Crane has a messy past with. Washington had sent Crane to kill his former commander and Crane offered to let him live if he'd order his men off the island of Manhattan but Howe refused to retreat. Crane was preparing to kill him but then soldiers burst through the door and completed the task themselves. Turns out Howe swore the oath of the draugour, essentially vowing to be a soldier even beyond the grave. Now he's brought his old army back from the dead to.

Howe brought these men to Sleepy Hollow's mausoleum where they kill a kid in cold blood. Howe's body was supposed to arrive back from the Jeffersonian (as learned in the Bones episode that's part of this crossover). The Witnesses follow the trail of the car that Pandroa ran off the road and end up getting attacked by the dragour in the process. But the soldiers disappear back into the cemetery ground once the sun rises.

The Witnesses must find the original resting place of Howe so they use the bone from Howe's hand that Abbie had shot off and have Dr. Brennan use her forensic expertise to help them trace its origins. In private, Booth has a heart-to-heart with Abbie, as he knows that she's working something off the books but he trusts her judgement. Booth and Brennan join the Witnesses to some underground tunnels to seek out the origin of the bones. Crane's ring unlocks a hidden tomb but when Booth steps on a lever, a walls drops in the middle of the room, leaving Brennan and Ichabod locked in with the coffin and a hot blue flame. Ichabod think it's magical and inextinguishable but Booth refuses to wait to figure out how to unlock a puzzle and shoots it which thankfully works and both pairs are reunited.

Brennan doesn't want to disrupt the archaeologically significant environment so she grabs Booth and drags him off while the Witnesses are left to discuss what they have learned. The dragour has a weakness: fire. But since Greek fire can't be extinguished, if they take down the dragour, the town will be burned down with them. Connect it back to Betsy Ross and how she led Patriot refugees out of Manhattan using a system of hidden tunnels before burning Howe's troops.

With the help of Jenny and Joe who prepare some Greek fire, the Witnesses are able to fight back against Howe and his soldiers. After luring them down into the tunnels, the Witnesses are able to burn the dragour and Howe commits suicide to keep Ichabod from having the satisfaction of killing him himself. The Witnesses later fill Booth and Brennan in via video chat, while leaving out some of the more supernatural details. The Jeffersonian will be taking jurisdiction of Washington's tomb to excavate it. Brennan wants Ichabod to help with it but he is too busy currently with the archives.

Abbie encourages Ichabod to ask Zoe out on a date. Daniel wants Abbie to help coordinate the task force working to take down a local crime ring that's buying items stolen from terrorists but then he sees Jenny and Joe working with one of their top operatives. Daniel is going after Atticus Nevins, the man who sent Sophie Foster to steal the shard. Joe wants to figure out Nevins' connection to his father, which is why he had offered Sophie the shard in exchange for a meeting with Nevins. Now Abbie's going to have to answer to Daniel.

Sleepy Hollow airs on Thursdays on FOX at 9PM.

Cthulhu Crush Options Popular YA Series The Dark Numbers for TV

CTHULHU CRUSH OPTIONS POPULAR YOUNG-ADULT SERIES THE DARK NUMBERS TO TV
Cthulhu Crush Productions has inked a deal for the top-selling young adult sci-fi book series "The Dark Numbers" for US TV development
Los Angeles, CA- Cthulhu Crush Productions has optioned the top-selling young adult sci-fi book series "The Dark Numbers" from Flemish author Luc Descamps, for television development in the US.  Described as Harry Potter meets Doctor Who and a hit with teens in Belgium and the Netherlandsthe seven volume series follows Tim DeWilde and his discovery of The Dark Numbers, the secret properties on the back sides of numbers that allow users to create magical wonders.  The books first became available to English speaking readers in 2013.

After discovering The Dark Numbers, Tim is enrolled in a secret school with others who share his gift for the Numbers. His classmates can use Dark Numbers to read minds, move objects, even create improbable machines. Tim's shocked to discover that not only can he do all of that, he also can do what no one else can do: use the Dark Numbers to open portals in time and space. This discovery launches him and his friends on adventures fraught with danger, wonder, mystery...along with the pressures of growing up. 
Cthulhu Crush has enlisted Intellectual Property Group's Brian Lipson to rep the television property. Lipson has represented clients such as Stephen Ambrose (Band of Brothers), Rex Picket (Sideways), Nelson Johnson (Boardwalk Empire).

The books are fast moving tales of adventure, excitement, and time travel. We're building on that to tell as many fantastic stories as there are numbers."
Wheeler and his Cthulhu Crush Productions partner Steve Parker are the creative force behind such indie faves as Judas Kiss and The Dark Place, the latter of which Wheeler also wrote and directed. The first productions under their Cthulhu banner, WTF!, a comedy-horror feature, and  Love, Colin, a coming of age tale, are finishing post for a 2016 debut. 
The Dark Numbers will be Cthulhu Crush's first TV series. 
"I can't sleep from the excitement," author Luc Descamps said. "Being picked up by an American production company with an aim to sharing my creation with a global audience has been a dream of mine for some time. With Cthulhu Crush and IPG behind the project, we've taken an important first step."
"The Dark Numbers has exciting young protagonists, fantastical, near magical, adventures, and a theme that is both familiar and original at the same time. I think audiences are going to love it," Wheeler added.

MAGNETIC PRESS ANOUNCES ANGELARIUM!

MAGNETIC PRESS ANNOUNCES
ANGELARIUM: BOOK OF EMANATIONS,
BY MASTER FANTASY ARTISTS
PETER MOHRBACHER & ELI MINAYA



Chicago, IL (October 28th, 2015) – Magnetic Press is excited to announce the solicitation of ANGELARIUM: BOOK OF EMANATIONS by the celebrated, master fantasy artists, Peter Mohrbacher & Eli Minaya.  
A stunning project unlike anything seen before, ANGELARIUM is a deeply mythic journey that weaves illustration, poetry, painting, and prose into a singular, mind-bending narrative that takes us through the gates of the eleven angelic emanations that embody the Tree of Life. ANGELARIUM paints a world of sheer awe, unveiling unknowable symbolic entities that point towards an ancient, immutable truth: “As above, so below.” 
Angelarium creator Peter Mohrbacher says of the project: 
"The Book of Emanations is my first foray into illuminating the overarching story of Angelarium. Most of the pieces you've seen so far are small glimpses into the journey of Enoch. His is the story of the one person who has visited heaven without dying first. It's based off an apocryphal Old Testament chapter called The Book of Enoch. The chronicle of his ascent will be contrasted against the fall of the Grigori, a band of angels that descend to Earth and are ultimately destroyed by their own hubris. These stories have trickled down into popular culture before, but I'm amazed they've never been fulfilled the way so many other mythologies have.

Angelarium is not a series of illustrations. It's not an art book or a comic book. It's not a series of prints or figurines. It's a space where we can use metaphor to describe our shared experiences. This gives it the freedom to manifest in any medium and tell any number of stories."

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S3E5 - "4,722 Hours" Recap


Finally, we begin to learn what happened to Simmons during the six months she spent on the planet. The planet was sun-less and seemingly deserted. Eventually, Simmons had to move from her point of arrival to find water. She's able to find a pool of water but is attacked by an alien inside of it. She is able to fight it off and feed off of its limbs to stay alive. Eventually she meets a man named Will Daniels who initially takes her captive.

Simmons escapes and Daniels chases after her and tends to a leg wound of hers, saying that "it" smells blood. They retreat back into his makeshift living space. Daniels is a stranded astronaut that had travelled through the portal with a team of scientists in 2001 back when the monolith was in NASA's custody. Over time, each member of the team was driven mad by the planet and an evil entity that lives upon it. Everyone died except for Daniels.

Simmons is able to figure out that they can track the stars and alignment of the planet's moons to determine the rate at which the planet rotates. The portal is in a fixed location so they can figure out where it will be and anticipate the next time that it opens. Just before the last of their power dies, they are able to learn that the portal will open in eighteen days and the location is somewhere quite dangerous. Unfortunately, they're unable to get to the portal in time. They try to shoot a message in a bottle into the portal that contains all the information they had gathered so that Fitz would know how to get them out but they just barely miss it.

Simmons loses hope of ever getting home but finds comfort with Daniels and falls in love with him. Some time later, they see a flare sent through the portal by Fitz. While Daniels distracted the evil entity, Simmons was able to make it to the portal and return to Earth. This brings up back to the present, where Simmons has finished explaining to Fitz that now she needs to reopen the portal so she can rescue Daniels. Fitz agrees to help while Daniels is shown to be still alive on the planet.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on Tuesdays on ABC at 9PM.

Record Crowds Join The Stars at MCM London Comic Con


MCM LONDON COMIC CON – EXCEL LONDON – 23-25 OCTOBER 2015

Record numbers of visitors flocked to Britain’s leading pop culture event MCM London Comic Con this weekend. The three day show saw 130,560 pass through the doors of Excel London, eclipsing the record-breaking 122,600 attendees at May's Comic Con and the 110,200 at last October’s event. 

Essentially this cements MCM London Comic Con’s position as the third largest Comic Con on the planet — just behind illustrious US rivals in New York and San Diego. To add some UK context it’s also around 10,000 more people than attended both the Man United v Man City and Sunderland vs Newcastle matches this weekend — two of premier league football’s biggest derby matches.

Visitors to MCM London Comic Con enjoyed a whole host of sci-fi, film, television, comic book, videogame, anime, manga and cosplay content. Featured panels and Q&As included Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss on Sherlock and Doctor Who; Alan Tudyk and Nolan North on new comedy Con Man; Noah Wyle on Librarians; Charlie Higson on Jekyll and Hyde; and Gareth Evans on his acclaimed martial arts movie The Raid

Comic Con also hosted panels by cast and crew from zombie phenomenon The Walking Dead, hit sci-fi series Humans, historical fantasy Da Vinci's Demons, re-imagined classic Thunderbirds Are Go, Dark Age epic Beowulf: Return to the Shieldlands; upcoming horror drama Outcast and CBBC sci-fi show Eve, not to mention screenings of Amazon Original's The Man in the High Castle and Mr. Robot.

Other special guests meeting fans at the show included Arrow's Cynthia Addai-Robinson; The Flash’s Candice Patton; Breaking Bad's RJ Mitte; Game of Thrones Ian McElhinney, Ian Beattie and Eugene Simon; Continuum's Victor Webster; Warehouse 13's Saul Rubinek; Under The Dome's Alexander Koch and Colin Ford; Doctor Who's Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy; Red Dwarf’s Robert Llewellyn and Danny John-Jules; Adventure Time’s Jessica DiCicco and Anime Guest of Honour Shigeto Koyama (Big Hero 6, Kill la Kill). 

Meanwhile, the Comic Village was home to more than 200 talented comic book artists and writers including Bob Layton, John McCrea and Tony Lee; Vidfest’s gathering of online video talent featured The Yogscast, Rooster Teeth and The Hillywood Show amongst many others; and the games zone played host to publishers such as Ubisoft, Bandai Namco, Koei Tecmo, NisA Europe and Rising Star Games, as well the MCM eSports Arena.
