Convention Organizers Bash Colin Baker
Here’s an oddity for a Sunday morning: Starfury Events, who organize many conventions including this weekend’s Return to the Eleventh Hour, have remarkably alienated a huge swathe of their potential customers (and thereby put their business at risk) by inexplicably attacking former Doctor Who star Colin Baker on Friday.
We wouldn’t like to speculate on the atmosphere at this weekend;s event (which Colin was not involved with) in light of this:
Charming. To which the great man responded:
I guess Starfury Events won't be inviting me ever then… At least being fat ugly and grey is better than being cowardly and unkind.

Really, this is a completely baffling and needless attack on Colin (he’s 70, for goodness sake!). We’re not really going to go to town on this and say: “oi, Kasterborites, boycott Starfury convention events” but we would suggest that before parting with your hard earned cash in this era of financial meltdowns that you seriously consider the reputation of the business you’re patronizing.
Make your feelings known to their Twitter account, @StarfuryEvents.
