A second year of Cult TV saw us stay in Norfolk, but move down the coast to Caister ...


The phrase "because you demanded it" can wear a bit thin, especially considering more recent events, but in the case of the second Cult TV Weekender it was precisely the case.

A larger production crew assisted with the organisation of the event, and a new location was selected - the Haven Holiday Centre at Caister, five miles down the road from the original venue.

The first UK convention appearances of both Mitch Pileggi and Nicholas Lea - Assistant Director Walter Skinner and Alex Krycek in The X-Files - and Linda Thorson who played Tara King in The Avengers - boosted attendance figures.

Joining them were Sylvester McCoy, Ed Bishop and Jane Merrow from UFO, Carol Cleveland, Ingrid Pitt, director John Hough, stuntman Terry Walsh, Bill Baggs and special effects technician Ian Scoones.

While the weekend itself ran smoothly, it started to become apparent that personnel within the crew were working against the good of the event, in a manner that may have spelled the beginning of the end for the Weekender.
