Yeah, OK, you win Andrew. Still a few bits of news we need to catch up on…
First of all, we have been remiss in not mentioning that Howard Goodall‘s new musical, Two Cities, started on the 5th, and continues until the 30th at the Sailisbury Playhouse. You can book tickets here, and listen to some samples here. I can’t afford to go at the moment, but if anyone wants to do a review, get in touch. Don’t forget that Howard’s new Channel 4 show, How Music Works, is coming this autumn – we’ll let you know when we have a broadcast date.
Meanwhile, Chris Barrie‘s site is down. Please note that:

So, I’d best go and contact the site owner… whose name and email address you haven’t given me. Thanks!
As for Robert Llewellyn, he’s posted on his forum that series 9 of Scrapheap Challenge is in the can, and will be broadcast starting January 2007, rather than having it’s usual Autumn debut. Which according to Robert is great, because “far more are watching TV in January than at the beginning of September, and as you probably know, the first few shows often get missed because it’s still sunny and light”. If I’m honest, I keep missing the show – not because I’m out enjoying the sun (heaven forbid), but just because I’m RUBBISH. Must watch it this time.
Oh, and some important breaking news: Danny John-Jules has a MySpace page. Now, why doesn’t he use the opportunity to upload the famed Storymakers outtakes he told us about at Dimension Jump? Apart from the fact that HE’D NEVER WORK AGAIN, of course.
Speaking of Dimension Jump – a sad bit of news from Pete Tyler – Mike Tucker won’t be at this year’s DJ after all -but Alan Marshall, Nick Kool and Pete himself will be there. Never mind – three hunky strapping visual effects guys will be more than enough to satisfy me. Besides, they’ll be bringing along some never-seen-before Super 8 footage Pete shot behind-the-scenes on the visual effects.
I’d like to do the “Sorry, I’ve just come” joke, but unfortunately it wouldn’t be a joke.
