This past weekend was a busy one if you attended the Tampa Bay Comic Con! It ran from Friday, July 31st, through Sunday, August 2nd. It was a good event even though it seemed somewhat smaller than last year’s convention. Here’s their website!

A couple of weeks ago, during a recording of Top Five, I made the prediction that in the next couple of years a stash of Doctor Who episodes once thought lost would be found. Since then, we’ve been inundated with people telling us of the newly discovered lost episodes from Nigeria.
