I mentioned in the previous posting that I'd had some involvement in these recordings, although I wondered at the time, whether or not I'd be credited. It now seems that I'm not actually credited with playing any specific role/s in either story, although my photo appears on the inner sleeve artwork. As far as I remember, I possibly added to the general Ogron melee and filled a few of the continuity gaps. It's a little confusing I agree, but there are quite a number of stories I'm uncredited with, although my photo doesn't usually find it's way on to the sleeve art in such instances.
I found myself signing a number of those CD sleeves at Big Finish Day 6 last weekend, which, I must say was thoroughly enjoyable once again and which seemed to fly by. It was a pleasure to meet and chat to so many Big Finish fans, both at the signing area and at the Sherlock Holmes panel. I had the impression that it was the busiest BF Day so far and the pace didn't seem to slacken at all until final close of play. So thanks indeed to all who came, I hope you had as much fun as I did and I hope we'll meet up again at a future BF Day.
Earlier in the week just gone, I was in studio working on a new Doctor Who adventure and having a fabulous time with the company; the morning's work started a little late as the stories and anecdotes were in full flow, as indeed were the tears rolling down my face - quite an effective 'warm up' really.
