Police were called in when a long-running dispute between the two groups spilled over into the dark side at a sci-fi convention

The Force had to be used to end a bust-up between Star Wars and Doctor Who fans.

Police were called in when a long-running dispute between the two groups spilled over into the dark side at a sci-fi convention.

It kicked off when angry organiser Richard Walker, of the Norwich Star Wars club, saw Jim Poole, 44, of rival Norwich Sci Fi Club filming the family event with two fellow Time Lord fans, one dressed as David Tennant.

Mr Walker, 63, said: “The person on the door had not not recognised them. I put my hand on Mr Poole’s arm to escort him off the premises and he said I had assaulted him.”

More than a dozen people then became involved in a bitter row at the University of East Anglia, where 1,000 sci-fi fans had gathered, many dressed as Stormtroopers.

Police arrived and put one Who fan in a car before calming things down. They decided there was no assault.

A spokesman said: “The rival groups were told to keep out of each other’s way.”

Mr Poole said he had attended “in good faith” to get autographs from Doctor Who actors.

The clubs’ dispute is over the names of their separate conventions.

EW: Futurama canceled. Again.

The Planet Express ship will soon make its final delivery.

Comedy Central has decided not to renew Futurama, which means that the 31st-century-set animated comedy will end its 140-episode run on Sept. 4. The final 13 episodes, which represent the second half of season 7, begin airing on June 19 at 10 p.m.

Comedy Central has declined to renew 'Futurama,' meaning the next 13 episodes will be the last. My wife is pissed.

Futurama is no stranger to cancellation, of course: The series aired from 1999 to 2003 before Fox sent Fry & Co. into oblivion. After thriving in reruns on Adult Swim, Futurama was relaunched in 2007 with four-direct-to-DVD movies that Comedy Central ran in half-hour increments as a 16-episode fifth season in 2008-09. Comedy Central subsequently ordered a sixth season of 26 episodes, which aired in 2010-11, and a seventh season of 26 episodes, the first half of which debuted in 2012.

The news did not come as a shock to executive producer David X. Cohen and creator Matt Groening, who had thought their space explorations were ending three previous times (after the Fox run, after the four movies, and after Comedy Central’s first 26-episode order). “I felt like we were already in the bonus round on these last couple of seasons, so I can’t say I was devastated by the news,” Cohen tells EW. “It was what I had expected two years earlier. At this point I keep a suitcase by my office door so I can be cancelled at a moment’s notice.”

The series won the Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program twice, in 2002 and 2011. It has declined in the ratings, though, averaging 2.6 million viewers in 2010, 2.3 million in 2011, and 1.7 million in 2012.

Comedy Central’s EVP of Programming Dave Bernath views the network’s decision as “the natural end” to the show’s improbable comeback. “That’s a helluva run that few shows achieve, and especially given the fact that it came back to life, it’s really an amazing story,” he says. “I’m more thankful and feel a sense of gratitude toward the whole process — and that we found a way to keep going for 52 more episodes — than I really am even thinking about the ending. It’s a blessing that it came back and lasted so long.”
