LATEST UPDATES (September 2019)
The latest instalment of Tinsel Girl, Cherylee Houston’s continuing series of plays and serials about life as a wheelchair user, was on Radio 4 at the end of August. I’m in it (alongside a great cast including Cherylee, Julie Hesmondhalgh and Krissi Bohn) playing about four different people and it’s on iPlayer for a month here.
I will be presenting Radio 4 Extra’s The Seventh Dimension on the first couple of weekends of the month, and it features a lost Doctor Who story and the jolly Australian time travel spoof Night Terrace amongst many other treasures.
Another month, another Guardian obituary, this time that terrific turn Sheila Steafel, whom I have written about here.
The Season 23 Doctor Who Blu-Ray box has been announced. I’m on it, presenting a very silly documentary about the Doctor Who Cookbook. It’s not quite as archaeological as my usual fare, but I do get to make soup with Frazer Hines, so, you know… and, bonus, it is narrated by India Fisher off of Masterchef.
I’ll be MCing XS Malarkey all month as usual. Each Tuesday we’ll have a fantastic line-up and our guests will include Johnny Pelham, Edinburgh Fringe Best Joke winner Olaf Falafel and Seymour Mace. Listings details are available at the XS Malarkey Website.
I’ve recorded an episode of the Pull Back And Reveal podcast, discussing comedy and sci-fi and all sorts of other stuff. Have a listen here.
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!
