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…

Spring has finally sprung

And along with it my new-look website courtesy of Matt Evenden… thank you for checking in, and thanks also for your patience with my very intermittent blogging. Today, writing in haste, en route to my THIRD meeting for SISTER ACT! Cross everything at 4.30pm as I run the gauntlet of American producers, who I am…

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…

Lady in the van

Well, it’s all systems go. RIVER CITY starts up again, filming through to December 6th. This weekend I am in Glasgow at the Purple Hotel signing for two days… do come if you can. (2, Row Avenue, Renfrew, Glasgow, G51 4SY.) My writers group is scribbling away with some very exciting and FUNNY ideas, and…

The God of Drama is smiling upon me

Hi all, what a year it’s been so far. Feeling quite blessed. I spent from February until May recording RIVER CITY (see photo, left) and the feisty Viv has made her screen debut. Toy boy grabbing, internet dating, hairdresser, lush. A woman who behaves badly! She’s a great character. God bless the soaps for taking…

Happy Spring!

Hi one and all, As you will see from the following article life has been a bit hectic recently. Read The Herald article: “Former Dr Who actress joins the River City crew” Glasgow is terrific, although the commuting is hard work. I’ve just returned from two hours at the gym (a rare day off) because…

Can you bloody believe it?

Half way through February already! Am looking out my window at a simply glorious spring day, daffs and snow drops and a clamour of birdsong. I am currently commuting Glasgow recording RIVER CITY. My character, Viv, hits the screen in April. And I use the word ‘hits’ advisedly! Crossing my fingers that it isn’t all…

Happy New Year one and all.

I was given the bestest of all Christmas presents which is a 6 month contract with BBC Scotland to play VIV in RIVER CITY. She is a single parent of two grown up children, her best friend is gay, she’s a hairdresser and she drinks too much. Why do you think they thought of me?…

Stand up is my big thing of the moment.

I really LOVED a course I took in Camden Town at the LAUGHING HORSE which culminated in an open mike slot above the pub on the Sunday night…. And I have another gig lined up in December in Manchester, courtesy of Toby Hadoke, who I did a radio play for recently called MOTHS ATE MY…
