Hi Guys

I may as well start with the usual apology about this being late, which it is, so apologies!

In my last entry I stated the Sky drama, “Obsession” would air in October, but this is not the case. It is scheduled for transmission in the USA on January 23rd and we expect it to air in the UK around 10-12 weeks later, I'll let you know the exact date when I have it.

My work on “The Ark” has taken place and whilst I won't talk publicly and at length about my experience, suffice to say, it's been a bitterly disappointing job for me, I'd even describe it as my worst experience as an actor, in over 25 years. So that's it, enough said, we move on to the next project when it comes along.

I'm mentally and physically exhausted at the moment, my new puppy is really taking it out of me and the constant early dawn barking and restless sleeps have finally taken their toll. Thank heavens I fly out on a well deserved holiday in a couple of weeks. Not only do I need the sunshine, I need a little respite from Poppy, because although I love her to bits, the whole puppy thing is relentless and unforgiving.

My golf has started to pick up a bit, so I've invested in a brand new Titleist driver to improve getting off the tee in the right direction and with extra distance. Like the puppy, it's hard work, but I am getting there, expect to see me swinging away at a course near you at some point in 2014!

Having been exposed to the phenomenal worlds of “Game of Thrones” and “Ray Donovan”, I've now started and finished season one of “The walking dead” and am now a couple of eps into season 2 – all I can say is wow, now I know what all the hype is about and it's 100% deserved. These are three shows, I'd happily give my services for free, given the chance. The actors must be so proud, they're doing something really special.

I'm going to close now, as nothing has really happened since I last wrote and what has happened, I can't write about – ironic really!!

So until next time, take care
