LATEST UPDATES (July 2019)
I will be be a panellist on Sarah Millican’s new Radio 4 series Elephant in the Room, joining Annabel Giles, Lucy Beaumont and Evelyn Mok and hopefully being funny enough to justify being invited on. I think I’m in episode 3, on July 11th, but am not 100% sure – listen to the whole series anyway as it is very good!
I will be recording another instalment of the ongoing Radio 4 exploits of Tinsel Girl, inspired by and starring Coronation Street‘s Cherylee Houston – this month. Not sure when it is going to be on yet.
I had to write two Guardian obituaries in quick succession as we said goodbye to Avon himself, Paul Darrow, and a man with a voice that could move mountains and woo angels, Stephen Thorne. I had the privilege of spending time with both men and enjoyed their company a lot – the acting profession owes them both a great deal.
The next Doctor Who Blu-Ray box set has been announced. It is Season 10, and this Jon Pertwee fest will feature a documentary fronted by me called Looking For Lennie in which I try to find out all I can about the late Australian director, who died in tragic circumstances and before Doctor Who fandom had a chance to get to know him. It’ll be released this month.
It’s Edinburgh Preview Season at XS Malarkey. I’ll be MCing them all and there are some really big names trying their fringe entries out before August: Tony Law, Sarah Kendall, Sara Barron, Catherine Bohart, Adam Hess and Laura Davies are among those taking part in the next few weeks. Listings details are available at the XS Malarkey Website.
And finally … I’m delighted to announce that for writing work I will now be represented by the Independent Talent Group, an illustrious agency and no mistake. Onwards!
