Merlin - BBC drama

I recently had the privilage of attending the premier screening of the BBC's new Saturday evening Drama MERLIN at the Waterloo, London IMAX Cinema. It was a great piece of TV with superb acting, casting and production values on a par with cinema. Afterwards the red carpet treatment continued at the Brasserie at the OXO Tower on the Southbank. The view across the Thames to St Paul's Cathedral was truly outstanding and the skyline was on a par with anything the world could offer. I met Anthony Head (Uther Pendragon in Merlin but better known as Giles in Buffy the vampire slayer) and his partner, Sarah, who were both very lovely and gracious towards my wife and I. It was a real pleasure meeting them both. I also gave my first autograph (usually these just go on the bottom of bills!!!) to a lovely young lady called Christine. Both Christine and her actress sister - whose name to my shame I missed - were both lovely ladies and I wish them both well in their careers. My thanks to Jane Tranter for the invite.

Hi Helen,
nice to hear from you and I'm really touched by your words. As you probably know, I too was a police officer with Cumbria (West Cumbria)Constabulary. Maybe we crossed paths along the way - I'm not sure - I know so many people by their faces instead of their names. I am intending holding a book signing (or three) throughout Cumbria and i will post days and times/locations on this blog as and when I know where they will be.
I look forward to saying Hi at one of them
best wishes
