And so we wind down to Christmas and the final days of 2016. All the presents are bought and wrapped, the festive food and drink is in… time now to have some fun, feasting and family time.
I finished the year with a most wonderful job, a new drama series for BBC, written by
Jimmy McGovern and starring Sean Bean. I play one of his brothers, along with amazing actors Steve Garti and Paul Copley.

Going under the name of
The Yorkshire Teabaggers, we’ve recorded our take on the Christmas classic, Fairytale of New York, but given it a Yorkshire twist and renamed it Hairy Tale of New York(shire).
We’ve had a huge response on our
Facebook Page and on YouTube as well… I share it with you now to spread the love from Yorkshire this Christmas.
All filmed locally at
The Railway, Wadsley Bridge, Sheffield, just down the road from The Trafalgar Fisheries mentioned in the last post. Jean serves a fine pint, so get down there!

Merry Christmas to all! And to all, a good night!
