We’re all going on a summer holiday. Well, I am, anyway


Yes, it’s August again, more or less, so it’s time for my annual pilgrimage to Greece. That means no blogging until September, unless I go a bit loopy in the sun.

As usual, my three awesome, well considered reasons for this are:

  1. Most of you lovely readers are on your holidays in August, too, so I’m not going to write something none of you are going to read.
  2. Most media people are on their holidays in August, too, so they’re not actually going to be making much news I can get up early to report on or review.
  3. After a nice long holiday, it’ll take me some time to get back into the swing of things, anyway

TTFN and If you’re going on holiday, too, have a nice time – let us know if you had fun!


PS Until I’m back, feel free to enjoy this picture of David Tennant standing up for a change.

I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
