Current Activities

A Bit into the future.

I am happy to announce that I am going to be working with my old friend, Colin Baker in “A Christmas Carol”in December 2023. It is a short tour, and dates will be posted in due course.

March 20th 2023 Not a lot happening at present -I have had a bad fall at home, and have broken my wrist in two places. Updates on “Henry House” will follow in due course.

January 2023. I am pleased to announce that in January 2023, I have been cast as the co-lead, Paul, in the new Care-home drama, Henry House, produced by Rocking Horse Media Entertainment. The series is planned for the end of 2023.

The pilot is currently being filmed at Derwen College in Gobowen, Shropshire.

The premise for the opening episodes is that Paul is the new dementia resident at Henry House Care Home, who forms an unlikely friendship with Izzy,  the receptionist, who has been, against all the odds, appointed, whilst seeming to be totally unsuited for the job. Drama and comedy ensue.

Izzy, Paul’s co-star, is played by newcomer Ă“rla Jones, a splendid actress with whom I have already formed a strong working relationship.

Three colleagues of mine, all of whom have appeared in Dr Who, are also involved. Simon Fisher-Becker, Colin Spaull, and Annette Badland.  More details about the cast can be found on the website.

Henry House is written and directed by Gareth Owain David Thomas.

I will keep you posted as the filming progresses.
