I have written an Afternoon Play for Radio 4 which will be broadcast in on 9th July 2015. Entitled The Dad Who Fell To Earth I am in it alongside the legendary Ronald Pickup and a splendid cast comprising of Coronation Street’s Cherylee Houston, Alexandra Mathie, Lee Fenwick and Zoe Iqbal. It was directed by Charlotte Riches and I am very happy with it: if a little nervous. The blurb for it goes like this : “Tom had been struggling to come to terms with his dad’s sudden death, but that was before he found out his dad was secretly an alien from a distant planet. Tom finds his whole world shifting to a new perspective, a perspective that might just also include saving Earth from imminent destruction.”

With Bernard Kay at the CAA in November 2014 - it was to be the last time I saw him before his death on Christmas Day. He will be missed.

I had the unenviable task of writing an obituary to an acting hero of mine, Bernard Kay. The result was published in the Guardian in early January and can be found here. I sadly had to follow that up pretty sharpish with a similar piece for TV writer and producer (whom, unlike Bernard, I did not know personally) Brian Clemens: that one can be found here.

The BFI Sherlock Holmes DVD on which I provided commentary moderation will be released at the end of March. It is available here.

I set myself an enormous task in 2013 – to interview someone from every single televised Doctor Who story. These are being broadcast as a series of podcasts, found here. I outline my plan here. Updates are here.

If you have worked on Doctor Who or know someone who has, this is the page that should be read : HERE!

 

Oh yeah, and that is me as a copper pulling over Jason Cook’s miniature chef on the Jacob’s Crinkly’s advert currently doing the rounds. Yum yum!
