Hey Steph! I'm SUPER excited about SDCC after Moffat's statements! However I think that with Amanda on the panel, they will tone it down a bit. Unfortunately I live in Europe, but I hope someone will upload it, or if a clip is shown we will all be able to watch it somehow.. Anyway, don't you think it is a bit weird how Martin and Ben never attend these panels? Ben will probably be there anyways. Is it because they are bored to do so? I like the rest of the crew but I hoped they'd be there.
It’s tough to say what the outcome of the Panel will be; it could go either way. Mark is actually the gatekeeper for how much stuff they should spill… he has actually stopped Amanda and Steven both in the past have been warned and hushed during panels from speaking too much… I can only imagine what deep dark basement he’s gonna be locking Steven up in after SDCC for yesterday’s comments, LOL!
ALTHOUGH. They were a lot more open at the panel just before TAB, so I suspect we may be pleasantly surprised.
As for Ben and Martin: Martin doesn’t do cons, I believe, and Ben quite possibly needs a break after such a long stint of filming and press junkets; he has a family he wants to spend some time with. BUT every time Ben is on panels, he… tends to ramble and not pay attention to what he says, and then ends up saying too much. Ben and Martin together? Yeah, they wouldn’t be able to contain their excitement over it, and they both have tells when they lie (Martin goes stonefaced or redirects conversations and Ben gets very anxious and fidgety and mumbles or rambles) so I think once they’re allowed to talk about it, Ben will return to the con junket for Sherlock stuff.
I look forward to next year’s cons :D
(EDIT: So apparently Ben IS going to SDCC?? Possibly promoting Dr. Strange. Either way, I don’t think he’s allowed to talk in public yet lol.)
And as for a clip of the con, someone always uploads the stream after it is done, so hopefully I’ll get y'all a link to it once it’s up!
