I'm currently rehearsing the role of Eugene Phelts - a sinister assassin for a mysterious 'government' department. The play is Frequently Asked Questions written by Louise Singleton and directed by Rachel Illingworth; all details available via the link above.
There's much more to mention as the month progresses and I'll add to this post as soon as I can.
9th May: After a short, sharp and very hot run at The Old Red Lion, FAQ ended on Saturday night.
Thanks to all who packed out the tiny theatre and endured oven like conditions inside. Once we'd come to terms with a tricky new script, I very much enjoyed the process of working under the expert guidance of director Rachel Illingworth and was equally delighted to perform the play with Alice Havillyn and David Cullinane, who both did a magnificent job and made the whole event great fun to do.
For the rest of this week, I'll be working on and preparing for three new Sherlock Holmes audio dramas, which we start recording next week; The Empty House, The Tangled Skein and The Hound of The Baskervilles.
Released this month from Big Finish:
Janet Fielding (Tegan Jovanka),
Mark Strickson (Vislor Turlough),
Sarah Sutton (Nyssa),
Lucy Adams (Deela),
Michael Maloney (Rennol),
Lizzie Roper (Hoss),
John Banks (Kanch/The Morass)
'The TARDIS travellers take a break on the beach world of Vektris. Hot sun, cold drinks and all the time in the worlds. What could possibly go wrong?
A kidnapping, a spaceship heist and a desperate chase to a distant galaxy later, Turlough finds himself in a strange winter palace… along with a face from his past. The Doctor, Tegan and Nyssa, meanwhile, fight to escape its frozen catacombs, guarded over by a vast and deadly alien Morass.
In the Middle East, the kingdom of Sayf Udeen is being terrorised by Soviet invaders and alien monsters.
And on the Scottish border, a highly guarded facility contains an advanced alien weapon.
These are all part of the Doctor's masterplan. But masterplans can go awry…
After a successful and enjoyable time at April's Act III Convention, Big Finish, in collaboration with tenthplanetevents, are to stage their first 'in house' convention - details in the June posting.
But first, a shot of Beth Chalmers and me signing CD covers at Act III.
