|OzzyPip (Mum) and I at the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular|
This weekend Mum and I went to the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular in Brisbane. And it was Spectacular! The Queensland Symphonic Orchestra and the Brisbane Chorale were joined by Peter Davison (the 5th Doctor) and Ben Foster (the official Doctor Who conductor) for an evening of awesome Doctor Who music, much of it by Murray Gold, from the last 50 years of Who.

|It's Peter Davison. Shhh, don't mention the cricket!|
However I think my favourite thing from the weekend was the crowd. I was at the Excel for the Doctor Who 50th Celebration weekend. I was in Ireland for the Irish Discworld Convention. I was back at the Excel for London Comic-Con. And while those were all powerful atmospheres, there was something uniquely relaxed, uniquely friendly, uniquely Australian about the atmosphere and the crowd in Brisbane this weekend.
