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.

Outlander at Wizard World Cleveland

All you lucky Mid-west and Easties got to have the lovely Caitriona Balfe, Duncan Lacroix, and Richard Rankin at Wizard World Cleveland March 6-8. Fun was had by all. It looks like Richard Rankin is thoroughly addicted to the Wizard World Con circuit and Duncan Lacroix is picking up a few cons going into spring. Fingers crossed they will come West Coast way later this Con season.

Sadly Colin McFarlane had to cancel due to illness.

WE hope that doesn’t mean that we lose Murtagh at the end of season 5 as we get into the heated conflict with The Regulators. Since the production is taking up filming at the end of April, and Duncan is slated for a new con at the end of that month.

Speaking of Duncan, he seems to have not gone home since the holidays and his 50th birthday. He has been hanging in LA with friends for a couple of months now. Mayhaps he is doing the Hollywood audition circuit, and may even venture into Hollywood North, otherwise known as Vancouver B.C.

Catch Caitriona’s panel here, part 1 and 2

and part 2, Duncan and Richard show up, and Richard is a handful…
