Thompson, John Ainsworth, Ian Farrington, Alan Barnes, cover artist Simon Holub, writers Marc Platt, Patrick Chapman, Nigel Fairs and, Jonathan Morris, David Richardson, Lisa Bowerman, Andy Lane, Simon Guerrier, sound designers and musicians David Darlington, Richard Fox and Lauren Yason, actors Jane Goddard and Niall Macgregor, and someone called Katy Manning…
