Timegate, Day 2, Part 3
Waiting on James now, out in the lobby again, after chatting with Sue Phillips for a bit, visiting the con suite, and previously having bought myself Ahistory, the Doctor Who timeline book I mentioned earlier and then attended the Q&A with John Levene, who played UNIT Sergeant (and then Warrant Officer) Benton on Who.

Actually, it should have been called "the John Levene lounge comedy act with interrogative interruptions," as he had us in stitches with rapid-fire bad jokes for an hour. In between we learnt that his mother still had a small Yeti prop from his first appearance on Who and that he is trying to do a small Benton film around it, that he was great pals with Jon Pertwee and Katy Manning and Roger Delgado and that he and Pertwee pulled several pranks together, that he'd love to be on the new series, and many other things in enjoyable detours from the questions posed. ADD has nothing on this man. :-)
