Sex, Drugs and Rock and Chips

Will be joining the cast of John Sullivan's Only Fools And Horses prequel set in the early 60's. Have been asked to play the pervy cinema owner Eddie Raynor. Can't say anymore for fear of being visited by the 'Television Secrets Dept' of MI5. News of the project has been met with some hostility in the comments section of the Guardian. No surprises there. How do i feel about it? It's John Sullivan. It's a terrific script. It's a job. I should be so lucky!

'Higher'

Had a great week in Manchester recording a new comedy series for Radio 4 called Higher. Terrific cast and production team and one of the best set of scripts I've read for ages. It's set in a modern day university and tells a tale of intrigue and complicated professional relationships set against a background of growing regulation and management intervention. If I didn't manage to mess it up, it could be quite good.

One Dog and His Man

First day of principle photography - as they say - for 'One Dog and His Man' is confirmed for July 20th. I'm playing the 'Man' and Ralph Little is the 'Dog'. Great script and filming in Manchester, so can catch up with friends and family as well.
