    Hi Everyone!

    As plain as day i’m a newbie although i’ve been a RD fan all my life so i have no idea why i’ve only just come across this website!!.

    I just wanted to say a huge hellooooo and also ask some advice??.

    I have decided to go to one of the RD conventions next year but im not sure which is best?. There is dimension jump obviously but there is another one called better than life so im a bit stuck.

    Obviously id like to go to the most popular ones, the ones fans prefer as id love to meet other fans:) I want to meet the actors too although ive already met craig charles and chris barrie and id really like to meet danny john jules, its confirmed he is attending better than life but not dimension jump so i need all your opinions!!

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    You want to go to Dimension Jump, which is the official convention.

    None of us go to the other one which is unauthorised, overpriced and, well, shit. :)

    Welcome to G&T!

    It’s mandatory and you have to come dressed as your least favourite character

    No one confirmed just yet as it’s still early days, but Dimension Jump has a very good record of getting a good number of main cast (unlike the unofficial convention). This year we had Craig, Chris, Danny, Robert, Hattie, Richard O’Callaghan and the visual effects boys. It was rather splendid.

    *vicreeves* Hello. */vicreeves*

    Also at this DJ Chloe was organised as a surprise guest. And GNP donated show costumes for the auction…and yeah, exclusive convention-first news/personal message from Doug.

    Being official has a lot of advantages. Previous DJs have seen all manner of exclusive videos and info from GNP. Imagine what’ll be possible at the coming DJ if the show’s in production…

    > (unlike the official convention)

    Typo!

    Thing is, though, it’s not as much about the guest list and what you can get as it is about the overall vibe. There’s one price for DJ, all fans are equal. You don’t get to be a gold fan if you have more cash. The whole event is run not-for-profit. The aim is to cover costs, meaning there’s no incentive to try and pull money out of the attendees by, say, charging more for photos or whatever.

    So it’s both the more official event, and the more casual and relaxed. Plus there’s none of that uncomfortable profiting-from-someone-else’s-show aftertaste.

    Oops! Also, I forgot about Chloe. FAIL.

    But, yeah, what Andrew said.

    Usually the dressing up is limited to the Saturday night Costume Competition but I did spot a few people who were wandering around all weekend in their costumes.

    Ah cool, god knows who i will go as, i didn’t really want to dress up as one of the main guys as i wanted to be a bit different and obscure and was thinking about going as someone like sabrina mullholland de jones until i realised that is in fact a crap idea lol

    Hello there, Petetranterssister!

    DJ is the place to be. I went to my first one this year despite being a RD fan since, like, forever, and had a really great time.

    My son’s now trying to persuade me to do the costume competition for the next DJ. Truth is, I’m a bit chicken, but it mainly depends on whether I can think of someone/something to dress up as.

    I am sure absolutely nobody is now thinking of suggestions for hummingbird to dress up as.

    #105650

    I’ve been wanting to go to DJ for years but still haven’t got round to it. I just have to look at the pictures and videos that get posted after the events with envy.
