Two major genre publications, SFX (UK) and Starburst Magazine (US/UK/Europe, celebrating its 30th anniversay this year!), have published reviews of “Sunday” in their latest issues, and it’s fair to say the editors were not impressed with how Carson Beckett was disposed of, or the loss of the character period, mirroring fan reaction worldwide.

To celebrate Carson Beckett and to demonstrate our passion for restoring the character to Atlantis, we at SaveCarsonBeckett.com have organized a public event to take place outside Bridge Studios in Burnaby, BC, Canada, where Stargate Atlantis is filmed.
On Thursday, March 22nd from 12:30 – 2:00 pm, fans will gather to celebrate and hear the world-class Scottish Pipe Band, The Highland Celts of Canada. The group will play traditional pipe band tunes including “The Dark Isle,” the song played in the episode Sunday during Carson’s memorial. But don’t fret, there will be happier selections as well!
