LATEST UPDATES (February 2019)
I am the guest of the latest episode of Neil Perryman’s excellent podcast Perfect Night In : even if you don’t want to listen to me blathering on check out the other episodes as it’s a terrific show.
An actor I admired and had the good fortune of spending many social hours with was Del Henney who sadly died in January. I did him an obituary in the Herald (read it here) and am working on something a bit more detailed to go on my blog. RIP Del – a good guy and a terrific actor.
I did my annual Doctor Who In Memoriam video at the end of last year. You can see it here.
Over Christmas I had the sad duty of writing an obituary for TV producer – and erstwhile Doctor Who director – Bill Sellars for the Guardian. You can read it here.
I was recently interviewed by Stuart Goldsmith for his Comedian’s Comedian podcast. I’m now replaying the conversation in my head in the early hours and thinking about what I should have said. So keep an eye out for that – it’s an honour to have been asked.
As usual I will be MCing XS Malarkey every Tuesday, the Comedy Store every other Sunday and the 99 Club, Leicester Square every other Wednesday.
Some more CD commentaries for Doctor Who episodes have come out from those delightful and hard working fellows at Fantom Films. I have moderated chats with the cast of Resurrection of the Daleks and various folks involved in all sorts of Martian Invasions. Details on these, and previous releases, here.
I have recorded some audios for the fabulous new entertainment producers Sound of Thunder who are making some delightful original content from a great talent pool. More details here. And they gave me an apple tree, the lovely people!
XS Malarkey is promising a fantastic set of line-ups every Tuesday in 2019. I’ll be MCing as always. Listings details are available at the XS Malarkey Website.
I have also made another documentary for the Doctor Who Blu-Ray range – A Weekend with Waterhouse finds me breakfasting with Adric and getting up close and personal with the man who played him. Chris Chapman is the superb programme maker behind this and a few more productions that we are currently working on for later on in the range.
My Big Finish podcast Toby Hadoke’s Who’s Round enjoyed a terrific Christmas special in the company of that fine actress and Equity president Maureen Beattie – the exact future release schedule isn’t certain but keep an eye out here.
