August 2013

Hi guys

Apologies for the slight delay, but it's been a mad few weeks…..

So, deep breath, here we go.

Let's get the easy stuff out of the way first, Scouting for Girls were awesome, we had a fabulous time at the races, although, as always at Windsor, I lost everything, including the shirt off my back. It's not a good track for me, but I still keep going!

The mad hatters tea party was incredible, I have written a review on trip advisor, posted on the 28th August which is entitled:- “Mad, yes, but totally fun and enjoyable!”, have a look, if you fancy doing something a bit unusual, next time you're in the smoke.

So let's talk work, it has been an incredible August. The transmission date for “Obsession” on Sky looks likely to be in October. It's a wonderful drama and I'm looking forward to watching it myself. I'll let you know the exact date, when I have it.

I finished night shoots on “Obsession” and managed to grab a few hours sleep before travelling to the BBC for a meeting with producer, Jonathan Phillips and director Paul Gibson, for the drama series “Father Brown”. What a lovely couple of guys they were, they made me feel extremely welcome and at ease, whilst I read for the part of Sgt Daniel Goodfellow, the local village bobby.

Little did I know, I would be seeing a lot more of them over the coming weeks, as I was offered the part and started work on the last 2 episodes of the current series.

It was fantastic, we worked on location in the Cotswolds with a great cast and crew, who made going to work, very easy and really enjoyable. I really hope I get asked back next year as a main cast regular, if another series gets commissioned. We will have to wait and see, but, fingers crossed.

The day after I completed filming, I once again found myself back at the BBC, for a meeting with casting director Jill Trevellick and director Richard Clark for new primetime drama “The Ark”. The meeting went really well and I have heard this morning, that I have been offered the role, shooting in Bristol and Dorset.

If you're interested, here's a link about the show, one thing is certain, it's going to be huge!


Well, this is probably the longest I've written in a while, so I'm going to get off now.

If anything else happens, I'll let you know, but as it stands, I can't seem to put a foot wrong, long may it continue!!

Until next time, take care.

John xxx
