If you were at CONvergence last weekend, you probably saw this promotional art for next year’s convention and it’s British Invasion theme. I wanted to post a key to the references it contains for those that might not have gotten all of them.
- Connie as Emma Peel from The Avengers
- Professor Max as John Steed from The Avengers
- Connie Mark 2 as Nathan from Misfits
- That Smiley Planet Guy from Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
- God from Monty Python and the Holy Grail
- The Liberator from Blake’s 7
- Starbug from Red Dwarf
- Harry Potter from… uh… Harry Potter
- An alien walker from John Christopher’s Tripods
- Thunderbird 1 from Gerry Anderson’s Thunderbirds
- The TARDIS from Doctor Who
- Graffiti from V for Vendetta
- A Triffid from Day of the Triffids
Not numbered, but visible in the background: The London Eye, Big Ben, and a Double-Decker London bus.
I considered adding a reference to The Prisoner or Sherlock Holmes or James Bond… but I didn’t want to over-clutter it. There’s a whole year ahead to reference the works of H.G. Welles, Sapphire and Steel, 28 Days Later, Quatermass…
