John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness from Doctor Who and Torchwood, and apparently some sort of villain on Arrow) was the headline guest, and the chief reason my daughter wanted to go. I went to both of his presentations and I have to say he was fantastic. Absolutely hilarious. He spent his hour taking questions from the audience (including one from the afore-mentioned daughter), but it was a lot more than that. He'd answer the question, eventually, but the time was spent riffing on the question and questioner, telling amazingly funny and touching stories, even singing a little. He was really excellent.

On the whole, Shore Leave was a great convention. Because it's fan-run, it doesn't have the feel of one of the professional cons like Comic-Con or Creation, to its credit. I'm looking forward to going back next year.
