My first day of filming in the studio was in fact, the last day of filming to take place in the 'Emmerdale' building. The entire facility, including wardrobe, green room, dressing rooms, make-up et al, was in the process of being packed up and shipped out to a new department in the main ITV building, just down the road. Whilst there, I also bumped into Jonathan Keeble, an actor I'd shared a dressing room with at The Royal Exchange when we worked on Cyrano together - small world! So, great thanks to all for such an enjoyable time and thanks to Casting Director Faye Styring for getting me involved in the first place.

Moscow 1967. The Doctor and Ace have arrived behind the Iron Curtain, and the Soviet Union is seeking a new weapon that will give it mastery in the Cold War.
What is the secret of the Martian relics? As the legendary War Lord Sezhyr returns to life, the Doctor is faced with some of his oldest and deadliest enemies.
The fate of Earth – and the future of Ace – are now intertwined...
