Well, hello there. One has to acknowledge that there has been something of a break between one's last post and this one. Sorry, to anyone who's interested. One has, however, not been idle. My Grandfather's Great War has been having a little rest from its exertions, or rather its performer has. On a serious note, enacting First World War battles single-handedly, and imagining you're in the trenches on a virtually nightly basis for three years can be a bit wearing, so I've done some other stuff over the last year.

And what would that be? Well, highlights have included playing Lord Augustus aka Tuppy Lorton in Oscar Wilde's Lady Windermere's Fan at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, and then recording the audio book of Philip Norman's new biography of Mick Jagger. I'm also still regularly recording The Economist podcast (http://www.economist.com/audio-edition) plus sundry other audio books. I've also finished a two-year course and am hopefully about to receive a diploma in Naturopathic Nutrition. Yeah, I know, it's not got much to do with acting, but hey, whoever said you had to do only one thing with your life?

And now, as the world holds its breath to see who will be residing in the White House for the next four years...my resolution is to keep more up to date with my posts. God bless us, every one...

Only one week and four days until the start of the 3-week London run of My Grandfather's Great War at the Tristan Bates Theatre in Covent Garden. If you missed it in Edinburgh in 2008 or 2009, or on tour ever since, now is your chance. For more details, go to http://www.mygrandfathersgreatwar.co.uk

This Saturday evening, for one evening only, "Hammered" will be showing at yet ANOTHER festival, this time the 7th London Independent Film Festival, from 5pm till 6.15pm at Shortwave cinema, 10 Bermondsey Square. Tickets on 0207 357 6845 or http://www.londonindependent.org/tickets.htm

It's nice to play a loony. And it's funny, dark and topical. What more could one want?  Seriously, though, I have watched a number of short films lately, and regardless of whether one likes this one or not (how could one not?), there is SO MUCH British talent out there, not being recognised as it should. Someone commented to me the other day that in another era, these would have been the people producing "Play for Today". A good point. Frustrated, anyone?

And unless it's a particularly cruel and tasteless rumour, one has heard tell that one's episode of The Inbetweeners is to be repeated tonight!

So here we are at the end of the first quarter of 2010, and doesn't it feel as though the whole country is just waiting, waiting, waiting....to see which way our votes will take us, before anyone actually gets around to DOING anything? Well, it feels like that to me. However, this website is now up, and today one got one's gnashers seen to at the dentist, so...brace yourself, world for an eventful and dynamic second quarter.
