Just look at these stars heading to Liverpool for MCM Comic Con 2017

Not long now until MCM Comic Con returns to Liverpool for the second time bringing with it a host of stars from the world of film and TV and look who is on the lineup…

Starsky, Hutch and Huggy Bear are bringing a touch of ‘70s style to MCM Liverpool Comic Con when the pop culture show returns next month at Exhibition Centre Liverpool! Paul Michael Glaser, David Soul and Antonio Fargas – the three stars of classic American cop show Starsky & Hutch – will be meeting fans and signing autographs on both days of the 11-12 March event.

Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul played the series’ titular detective duo, streetwise Brooklyn native David Starsky and his more intellectual partner Kenneth ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson, while Antonio Fargas became a hugely popular breakout star thanks to his role as extravagantly-dressed police snitch Huggy Bear.

Originally airing from 1975 to 1979, Starsky & Hutch saw Glaser and Soul’s characters cracking crimes in the fictional Bay City, California – investigations that often involved a visit to their jive-talkin’ confidential informant Huggy Bear and an exciting car chase in the ‘Striped Tomato’ – Starksy’s iconic bright red Ford Gran Torino.

Louise Brealey, who plays mortician Molly Hooper on hugely popular detective series Sherlock, has also been announced as one of the special guests meeting fans and signing autographs at the show.

Working in the morgue at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, Brealey’s character is more comfortable with the dead than the living. But don’t mistake Molly’s lack of social skills for a lack of intelligence – she’s good at her job and, in some ways, more perceptive about the real Sherlock than he is himself.

One of the nicest characters on the show, Molly is also somewhat of a humanising influence on the über aloof Sherlock, whom she is hopelessly in love with. And while Molly’s affections aren’t likely to be returned any time soon, she is one of the few people the great detective trusts with his secret when he fakes his own death in Season 2’s finale.

A writer, producer and journalist as well as a film, TV and stage actor, Louise Brealey’s small screen credits beyond her breakout role in Sherlock range from Casualty and Law & Order: UK to Ripper Street and the BBC’s Emmy-winning 2005 production of Bleak House.

Sam J. Jones, best known for playing the iconic hero of 1980 sci-fi classic Flash Gordon and Trina Nishimura, who voices female lead Mikasa Ackerman in global phenomenon Attack On Titan are also part of the celebrity guest line up.
