The Norwich police was called to a public disturbance this week in a reported clash between Star Wars fans and Doctor Who fans at a Sci-Fi convention. The Sci Fi turf war reportedly erupted when Norwich Sci Fi Club treasurer, Jim Poole, a Star Wars fan, appeared at the rival club’s event at the University of East Anglia and tried to get an autograph from Doctor Who actor Graham Cole. It appears that there were no true Jedi masters who could use their Jedi mind control trick. Of course, this does not work on some species and Dr. Who is not human.
It is a well known fact that Sci Fi can pit dweeb brother against dweeb brother. However, this confrontations involved more than a dozen fans from the rival camps. Although the Jedi have more lethal weapons, the Dr. Whoists have control of time and space. The availability of the TARDIS may explain why, when police reviewed the surveillance tapes, there was no direct evidence to use as the basis for assault.
Organiser Richard Walker, 63, (yes, 63) insisted that the Star War fans were trying to undermine the convention by posting comments on Facebook.
Below appears to be part of the security clip from the fight in Norwich:
