Jemma Redgrave and Oliver Cotton - "Duet for One" - Tour Details

(Larger image in the Who-Natic Gallery)

Jemma Redgrave and Oliver Cotton will star in a strictly limited UK tour of Tom Kempinski's award-winning play DUET FOR ONE, directed by Robin Lefevre. The tour will begin at Birmingham Repertory Theatre on 22 September 2017.

In this powerful, deeply moving, and at times poignantly funny play, Stephanie Abrahams, a brilliant concert violinist who seemingly has it all, is forced to re-evaluate her life when struck down by an unforeseen tragedy. Faced with a truth too difficult to comprehend she consults psychiatrist Dr Feldmann, resulting in a duel between two razor-sharp minds. Tom Kempinski's dazzling play emerges as an ultimately life-enhancing tribute to the human spirit.

Based on the life of world renowned musician Jacqueline Du Pré, DUET FOR ONE premiered at the Bush Theatre in 1980 with Frances de la Tour and David De Keyser and had great success in subsequent West End and Broadway runs, including a major revival in 2009 starring Juliet Stephenson and Henry Goodman. The film adaptation of DUET FOR ONE, released in 1986, saw Julie Andrews nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Actress.

DUET FOR ONE will be directed by multi award-winning director Robin Lefevre and designed by Olivier and Tony award-winner Lez Brotherston, with lighting by Ian Scott and sound by John Leonard. The national tour is produced by Lee Dean and Daniel Schumann, in association with Birmingham Repertory Theatre.

Thirteenth Doctor - Jodie Whittaker Promo Image


The BBC have released the first promo image of Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor.  Full size version is in the Who-Natic Gallery.



Thirteenth Doctor - Jodie Whittaker Interview


1. What does it feel like to be the Thirteenth Doctor?It’s very nerve-racking, as it’s been so secret!
2. Why did you want the role?To be asked to play the ultimate character, to get to play pretend in the truest form: this is why I wanted to be an actor in the first place. To be able to play someone who is literally reinvented on screen, with all the freedoms that brings - what an unbelievable opportunity. And added to that, to be the first woman in that role.
3. Has it been hard to keep the secret?Yes. Very hard! I’ve told a lot of lies! I’ve embroiled myself in a whole world of lies which is going to come back at me when this is announced!
4. Who was the first person you told when you got the role?My husband. Because I was allowed to!
5. Did you have a codename and if so what was it?In my home, and with my agent, it was The Clooney. Because to me and my husband, George is an iconic guy. And we thought, what’s a really famous iconic name? It was just fitting.
6. What does it feel like to be the first woman Doctor?It feels completely overwhelming; as a feminist, as a woman, as an actor, as a human, as someone who wants to continually push themselves and challenge themselves, and not be boxed in by what you’re told you can and can’t be. It feels incredible.
7. What do you want to tell the fans?I want to tell the fans not to be scared by my gender. Because this is a really exciting time, and Doctor Who represents everything that’s exciting about change. The fans have lived through so many changes, and this is only a new, different one, not a fearful one.
8. What are you most excited about?I’m most excited about becoming part of a family I didn’t even know existed. I was born in 1982 - it’s been around longer than me, and it’s a family I couldn’t ever have dreamed I’d be part of.
9. How did Chris sell you the part?We had a strange chat earlier this year where he tricked me into thinking we were talking about Broadchurch. And I started to quiz him about his new job in Wales, and asked him if I could be a baddie! And he quickly diverted the conversation to suggest I should consider auditioning to be the 13th Clooney.
It was the most incredible chat because I asked every question under the sun, and I said I’d take a few weeks to decide whether I was going to audition. He got a phone call within 24 hours. He would’ve got a phone call sooner, but my husband was away and there was a time difference!
10. Did he persuade you?No. There was no persuasion needed. If you need to be persuaded to do this part, you’re not right for this part, and the part isn’t right for you. I also think, for anyone taking this on, you have to want to fight for it, which I certainly had to do. I know there will have been some phenomenal actors who threw their hats in the ring.
11. What are you going to wear?I don’t know yet.
12. Is that your costume in the filmed sequence which introduced you as the new Doctor?No.
13. Have any of the other Doctors given you advice?Well they can’t because they haven’t known until now, but I’m certainly expecting a couple of calls - I’ve got a couple of mates in there. I’m mates with a companion [Arthur Darvill], I’m mates with a trio of Doctors. I know Matt Smith, Chris Eccleston and obviously David Tennant. Oh! And let’s throw in David Bradley! Four Doctors! So I’m hoping I get some calls of advice.


Jodie Whittaker is the Thirteenth Doctor



Full BBC press release:

The BBC today announced to the world that Jodie Whittaker will be the new Doctor Who.

The identity of the new Doctor was revealed exclusively on BBC One and on social media around the world after the Men’s Wimbledon Final on Sunday 16th July.

She will be the Thirteenth Time Lord and take over from Peter Capaldi who leaves the global hit show at Christmas.

New head writer and executive producer Chris Chibnall who takes over from Steven Moffat on the next series made the decision to cast the first ever woman in the iconic role.

Jodie Whittaker says: “I’m beyond excited to begin this epic journey – with Chris and with every Whovian on this planet. It’s more than an honour to play the Doctor. It means remembering everyone I used to be, while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: hope. I can’t wait.”

Chris Chibnall, New Head Writer and Executive Producer says :
“After months of lists, conversations, auditions, recalls, and a lot of secret-keeping, we’re excited to welcome Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor.  I always knew I wanted the Thirteenth Doctor to be a woman and we’re thrilled to have secured our number one choice. Her audition for The Doctor simply blew us all away. Jodie is an in-demand, funny, inspiring, super-smart force of nature and will bring loads of wit, strength and warmth to the role. The Thirteenth Doctor is on her way.”

Peter Capaldi says : “Anyone who has seen Jodie Whittaker’s work will know that she is a wonderful actress of great individuality and charm. She has above all the huge heart to play this most special part. She’s going to be a fantastic Doctor.”

Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content says :
“Making history is what Doctor Who is all about and Chris Chibnall’s bold new take on the next Time Lord is exactly that. The nation is going to fall in love with Jodie Whittaker – and have lots of fun too!”

Piers Wenger, Controller BBC Drama says : “Jodie is not just a talented actor but she has a bold and brilliant vision for her Doctor. She aced it in her audition both technically and with the powerful female life force she brings to the role. She is destined to be an utterly iconic Doctor.”

Matt Strevens, Executive Producer says : “I’m so thrilled that Jodie Whittaker said yes to playing the Doctor. I’ve been a fan for years and always hoped to work with her. She is an actor of great emotional range and inhabits every role with complete passion and conviction. Just thinking about what she will bring to the Doctor makes me as excited as a kid at Christmas. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Promo Image - Jemma Redgrave - Holby City - Going the Distance

Well - we finally have a new promo image of Jemma Redgrave from "Holby City".  It's an episode promo from Series 19, Episode 41 - "Going the Distance" - which airs on BBC1 on Tuesday 18 July 2017 at 8pm.  Could this mean we'll get more than 2 minutes of screentime?  Bernie is actually mentioned in the synopsis so hope springs eternal.  The full size image - 1920 x 1080 - is in the Who-Natic Gallery.


The synopsis reads:
Essie is worried that she is falling short as a foster mum to Parker, but determined to take all the responsibility herself, she is reluctant to accept any help from Raf. Working together on a sensitive case involving a mother and son, their fledgling relationship is tested - can Essie trust Raf to help her connect with Parker?

Bernie tasks Donna with keeping an eye on Morven during her first day back at work. Morven throws herself into the diagnosis and treatment of her patient, but can she accept the life-and-death nature of her job after all she has been through?

Jac is at a low ebb when Matteo depresses her even further by assigning Damon to her on his assessment day. However, despite a shaky start, Damon triumphs under her tutelage and, energised by his success, she makes a demand of Hanssen to get her career back on track.
