Music and Murder!

I’ve just returned from after dinner speaking for the The Lady Taverners Club. Had a terrific time, and loved the whole ambience and atmosphere of the day. The Hotel where the luncheon was held is the Rowhill Grange Hotel and Utopia Spa – what a BEAUTIFUL place it is – and I’ve been promised a day’s pass…

Love’s the Thing

And late..! Apologies. A myriad of reasons but I won’t bore you with them. Just ask you to excuse me. THE DREAM went wonderfully… eventually – I threw a wobbly on the Monday of the final week and they jumped to in the most unexpected and brilliant way, by Sunday I was enormously proud. Not…

Pennant Roberts

I’ve had a very sad month with the death of my dear friend and mentor Pennant Roberts. The funeral was last Friday and absolutely amazing, with many, many people telling me Pen gave them their first break… and of course I include myself in that number. Hundreds of people, old friends, tears and laughter and the sun shone.…

Don’t you just LOVE this weather?

It lifts the spirit, which has taken a dip or two this month. It’s not that I haven’t been offered work, it just that the offers need to tick two of the three boxes which are: (a) artistic satisfaction (b) location (c) remuneration Why is it that the work we LOVE to do is poorly paid,…

TLC Productions launches!

Thanks to everyone who supported the event on April 17th. Frazzled is not the word – the calmest moments for me were, surprisingly, when I was on stage. The feed back has been fabulous. FROM WOMEN’S EYES – now to be called SHAKESPEARE’S MISTRESS will, in its next life, be 10 minutes longer, one more speech and a…

The Sun Makers

Just back from recording an interview about THE SUNMAKERS, my favourite Doctor Who story. Written by the late and very great Robert Holmes. Feel I’ve made a new friend in Simon Guerrier (my interviewer) who has already sent me a script of his for a short film (which I have agreed to do) called CLEANING…

Women on the verge of HRT

Oh my Lord, we’re nearly into MARCH! I’ve had a couple of months out in order to concentrate on The Sunday Drama College (SDC) and writing. Both of which are coming along brilliantly. January saw the first ever production of the SDC called I GOT HERE FIRST directed by the wonderful Nigel Fairs. I was…

Act III

Just back from Woman Magazine’s party celebrating 10 years of Loose Women. What a glitzy do! The lovely Sherrie Hewson was there, who I have known since 1969. We shared a flat whilst at RADA and I since toured with her in ARSENIC AND OLD LACE. Also today, I had a meeting with Matt Evenden…

Hi, my dear readers

Thank you so much for coming to site to see what is going on. Everything and nothing as it happens… I am still recording RIVER CITY, but instead of the anticipated increased story line I appear to have taken a back seat. Probably the best paid extra in Britain at the moment, but don’t tell…
