Well, wasn’t today’s ep of WTOVPIC marvellous, folks? Wasn’t the computer fantabulously sassy? Doesn’t Dave Lamb have the best voiceover? And wasn’t Charlie’s take on Uljabaan rather splendid? Of course it was, what am I saying! Now then, as you’re probably aware, ep 1 is now up online on iPlayer for y’all to listen to. It’ll also be on a podcast, I believe, which I think is downloadable? But yeah, go give it a go if you haven’t already. It’s proper mint, as they used to say back in my day: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04l0zq7

But I am secretly wondering if the gallery will be updated for WTOVPIC II on the Radio 4 site. I would ADORE some visual material to accompany the voices, for reasons which most of you will understand/can relate to.

But yeah, we’ll see. There’s only been one ep so far, so something will crop up soon. And when it does, by golly, you wonderful followers will be getting quite a grand dosage of Uljabaan-ness.

It was not quite the usual visitor to The Portsmouth Grammar School when actor Charles Edwards came to look through the school archive as part of his research for a new role.

Charles, who is currently most recognisable for one of his most recent roles as Michael Gregson in the well-loved ITV drama Downton Abbey, requested a visit to the school as he is preparing to play Alfred Wood, Conan Doyle’s secretary, in an ITV adaptation of Julian Barnes’ Arthur and George. Martin Clunes takes the lead role as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Charles relishes the prospect of playing real life characters like Alfred, known by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle as “Woody”, and has drawn on accounts from his former pupils and photographs in the school archive.  “It really was invaluable and so far the production have been thrilled to see photos of Woody they hadn’t been able to find any anywhere. I’ve already earned several Brownie points thanks to PGS. I had a great morning in Portsmouth!”

"There was definitely a frisson about the school generated by Charles’ visit today”, said Headmaster James Priory. “We were delighted to welcome him and help his research into Alfred Wood. Our school archive is a treasure trove of information and I very much look forward to seeing a character from school history coming to life on the screen.”

Time to get excited, folks!! NOT LONG TO GO NOW!! 

Also yes, that avatar is the latest Charlie picture we’ve had since… Well, a WHILE. When the BBC decide to release pics of the WTOVPIC recording sessions, I’ll be sure to show you them ;)

12 January 2009: Charlie arrived for rehearsals wearing a Ramones t-shirt; I too have the same shirt (in red). Memo to self, not to wear said t-shirt on the same day - maybe we could come up with a rota? Also, he wears his better than me. Is this blog material?
