Due South fans, you DON’T want to miss this in Toronto this August!

July 5th, 2012 by Marc Comments

You may remember a few weeks back we spoke to John Wright, the organiser of RCW 139, the world’s only Due South convention which runs August 17-19 in Toronto (listen to the podcast interview here)

Well, here’s the press release from John detailing what exactly will be happening and who’ll be attending. This is going to be fantastic and we at FTN wish going to Canada is in the budget…


Hello Due South fans!!

If you are interested in attending RCW 139 , the only Due South fan convention happening this August, and haven’t registered yet, you only have until July 15th to do so! The same applies if you cant attend and would like a supporting membership (goodie bag) and haven’t ordered yours yet. We’ve started to receive some of the goodie bag items and they look fantastic! As we’ve already placed our orders for most items, this will be first come-first serve – and there are only a few memberships left, whether attending or supporting so don’t miss out!!
It’s going to be an unmissable event with an amazing guest list including:
Paul Gross – The main man himself, Constable Benton Fraser
David Marciano – Detective Ray Vecchio (from the Golden Globe winning series Homeland)
Tom Melissis – Detective Thomas Dewey (a convention favourite and one awesome guy)
Ramona Milano – Franscesca Vecchio
Catherine Bruhier – Elaine Besbriss
Jay Semko – Music (the man behind the infamous theme tune and all music on the show is also giving us a free, private, once in a lifetime concert!)
Kevin Rushton – Stunts (we are hoping he gives us a little demonstration too!)
(all guests are subject to work commitments)

This is likely to expand even further as we get closer to the event and cast and crew can commit. Most of the princicple cast came last time, including Paul Gross and they all had a blast! ! Added to our wonderful guests we have a jam-packed weekend lined up, with quizes, competitions, signings, filming location visits, merchandise stands, prop exhibition, gala dinner, charity auction and much, much more!

All the info is on our site and you can place your orders on our online, secure Paypal store. We can also advise on where to go for cheap flights and accomodation, including discounted hotel rooms, just email us at

We hope to see you there!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
