Farewell tweets from the final day of Eureka , Simon Pegg on those Star Wars changes and which director is addicted to Deus Ex ? All in this week’s tweets
Goodbyes are never easy, but they’ve become even more difficult in an age of instant mass communication. Imagine if Twitter had been around when Firefly was cancelled, the internet still wouldn’t have recovered from the sudden explosion of geek outrage.
Plenty of shows have been cancelled since the birth of Twitter, but few shows with as much of a presence in Twitsville as Eureka . Most of the stars are on there as well as several of the writers and creators, which explains why the streams were quite a sombre place this past week as those involved in the show tweeted their final farewells from the set.
@ sallirichardson WOW I just came home from a 7 year journey. Thank you Eureka. You have taught me many things . Thx to the fans you are the best.
The life of a sci-fi celeb never stops though, with many of the cast hoping on planes mere hours after wrapping to attend ginormo-US convention Dragon*Con. For a flavour of the event you could do no better than checking through @ feliciaday ’s gallery of costumes from the show floor, including this familiar looking oversized hat:(opens in new tab)

@ simonpegg It's a shame Darth Vader didn't say "NO" to slaughtering all them little kids. He's alright though because he threw an old man down the bog.
