UPDATE: Where’s My Autograph From Outlander Wizard World Virtual Panels?

You may well be wondering like many of us are, where the heck your signed autograph from May 5, 2020, Virtual Panel is? After over a month of inquiries, and emails saying they are working on it, I may have a solid lead. Have you got your videos? We heard that these were delivered to most.

While we all suspected COVID-19 pandemic shipping had something to do with it, we had no idea that Wizard World had not even got the photos to the UK based actors, Colin McFarlane, Duncan Lacroix, Ed Speleers, Tim Downie, and others. I finally got some more solid clues this week. I received an email back from them, stating that they had finally hired a UK employee to ship the photos to, and who would be contacting the actors to have their photos delivered to them for signing. It’s looking like at least another 4-6 weeks of wait.

While I appreciate that Wizard World was trying to make up for the fact that their conventions had to be canceled, letting people know in a timely manner that delays were going to happen. While most of us have realized that this COVID-19 thing is delaying many things, I have been getting shipments from the UK during the whole pandemic. Albeit there is an extra 10-15 days on the 10 days transit, the vendors were proactive in contacting me. Not so at Wizard World.

So, does anyone else out there feel like their money was taken and the fandom was not really respected on this one? If you knew that the pandemic was slowing mail when you set up these virtual panels, why did you not have a plan in place to handle this? I really hate to gripe, but it’s bad enough many of us lost work and could not afford the expensive video packages, and opted for signed autographs. I guess you get what you pay for. Just a warning for upcoming conventions and fests doing Outlander.

David Berry and Tim Downie Give it the BTS All in Outcasts Outlander Podcast

Screen Shot 2020-06-28 at 4.24.57 PM

David Berry and Tim Downie have taken to Podcastdom to bring you fun adventures from their behind the scenes experiences. Since Downie left the show this season and we bid farewell to Governor “Tantrum” Tyron, we’re so happy he went to mess with the New York colony, but his wife was lovely.

Outcasts Podcast here

David Berry has been boohooing about that his days are gone on Outlander, but pay him no heed. Lord John Grey has a lot to do in the coming seasons, and since they are mashing up books, he won’t be gone for long.

In the meantime, to help us get through the Droughtlander that will be incredibly trying this year, the silly pair have started up their new Outcasts Podcast and have two episodes under their wing. This week, episode three is with Diana Gabaldon.

Best Outlander Sets and Yes, Jon Gary Steele is on to The Dreaming

Jon Gary Steele

I was saddened to hear that Jon was leaving Outlander production a few months back. However, after 7 years of working on this extremely intense production, you can only cheer him on to try out new adventures. Especially when it’s on one of your favorite comic series finally coming to the screen, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series on Vertigo comics. Guess Gary is off to The Dreaming.

Sadly, like many productions around the world, Netflix’s The Sandman has shut down due to COVID-19 pandemic. Based on the series by Neil Gaiman, and which he is also narrating and producing, it has been through several attempts to bring it to the screen. This time Netflix has a big commitment behind it.

I am so looking forward to Steele’s take on The Dreaming, the world of Morpheus (Dream), and his siblings, the Endless: Destiny, Death, Destruction, Desire, Despair and Delerium. A very different world than that of Outlander. We will miss him, but enjoy a different kind of BTS soon.
