APRIL 2019 UPDATE

LATEST UPDATES (April 2019)

I seem to be doing a lot of podcast interviews at the moment. Here’s one I did about Target books and other things Doctor Who and career related.

I’ve had the sad privilege of doing a couple of obituaries for the Guardian this month. One for Thunderbirds actor Shane Rimmer with whom I did a Doctor Who DVD commentary a few years back, and one for the comedian Ian Cognito who was an old mucker and a colleague I admired very much. I will also be on a forthcoming edition of The Last Word on Radio 4 talking about Cogs. 

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.

I go Looking For Lennie on the next Doctor Who Blu-Ray set, but will I find anything?

I was very honoured to be the subject of the latest episode of Stuart Goldsmith’s highly regarded Comedian’s Comedian Podcast. I talk about the state of the circuit, some of my influences and the background of my shows – amongst quite a lot of other things (it’s quite a long conversation!). It is available here.

BBC Sounds currently has every episode of Tinsel Girl – the radio series starring Cherylee Houston about a wheelchair trying to negotiate the world of dating – available to listen to. I pop us as various people in three out of the four series. You can hear them all here

XS Malarkey won Best Comedy Club in the North for a record 15th time in this year’s Chortle Awards. We are promising a fantastic set of line-ups every Tuesday in 2019. I’ll be MCing as always and guests include rising star Sophie Willan.  Listings details are available at  the XS Malarkey Website.

Also this year…

I notice I didn’t put my monthly updates up as blog pages in Jan, Feb and March so, in brief:

I’m on the DVD commentary for The Macra Terror, which is available now.

The Macra Terror gets all animated on DVD in March…

I did a nice interview for Neil Perryman’s Perfect Night In podcast here
