A little Christmas cracker

A busy few weeks filming Jack Whitehall's 'Daddy's Little Princess' for Sky's Xmas Little Cracker series. I play the Daddy of the title - and Archie Lyndhurst plays the young Jack aged eleven. The first time I've ever played someone I actually know - the extraordinary agent and producer Michael Whitehall - and I hope I did him justice. A lovely script and production team, with Jack himself playing a modern day Robin Hood.

Then off down to the BBC's new and wonderfully proportioned 'production hub' in Cardiff. Casualty is relaunching down there and I revisited for an episode after an absence of some considerable time. It is all very impressive and moral seems very high on the show. It's certainly got a fantastic standing set and facilities to play with and the whole studio complex is alive with creativity - Upstairs Downstairs is filming there also.

Didn't have time to visit Port Talbot to try and trace some of my mum's family roots, but fell in love with Cardiff and its very friendly welcome.
