Had a lovely time filming in Charlestown Harbour last week for Poldark. Production and design pulled out all the stops and it all looked very impressive. Back down this week to the far end of the Cornish peninsula for our first dealings with a mine. Never been further than Padstow, so am looking forward to Penzance and Land's End tremendously.
A wonderful turn out for the terrrific and prolific Peter James and his new crime thriller - the superb 'Want You Dead' - at its launch in Brighton last week. He gave a great speech and we chatted in earnest about the upcoming production of his 'The Perfect Murder', which begins in September. The play is based on his novella and in places is quite different to the original story. Writer Shaun Mckenna has done a very fine job of adapting it for the stage and it now includes a character very dear to the hearts of Peter's fans - Roy Grace.
I play a slimey IT manager called Victor Smiley and my old chum Dawn Steele plays my wife and sparring partner, Joan. Josh Andrews is producing and Ian Talbot directs.
In the meantime, I'm hoping to get across to Gibraltar for a few days research - it's a tough job etc - for my third Sullivan and Broderick crime novel, Drowning Rock.
That's it for June. I'm putting the kettle on.
