Buffy star's joy at Torchwood job
Former Buffy star James Marsters and ex-Neighbours actor Alan Dale have spoken of their excitement at starring in the BBC TV series Torchwood.
James Marsters will be playing another dark character
Marsters, who played Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, said he was "a big fan" of the Doctor Who spin-off.
And Dale, who used to play Jim Robinson in Neighbours and has recently been in The OC and Ugly Betty in the US, said he was "thrilled" to be in the show.
Filming for the new Torchwood series is currently under way in Cardiff.
The alien-chasing series, starring John Barrowman and Eve Myles, is expected to be shown in 2008 and Marsters is set to guest star in the first episode.
I have strict instructions to let SnoWhite know if I hear of (or see any filming) as they are filming the next series of Torchwood at the moment! The final of Doctor Who was filmed in SnoWhites friend's street in Roath, the scene where Martha is caught by The Master. I did see some filming at the Royal Infirmary but that was a while back now.
I have a Doctor Who question. If The Doctor and the Master were able to 'store' their 'essence' in a watch, could a ring do the same thing? Remember The Masters ring that a woman picked up from The Master's funeral pyre?
Sorry .....Enough Doctor Who/Torchwood.
WEATHER REPORT-The rainy season continues, I am almost tempted to go on holiday to escape the bad weather but I know there is no way that I could cope with the high temperatures elsewhere in the world at this time of year, unless of course I went North. Even now Helsinki is a pleasant 21 degrees and Oslo is 18 degrees- I have always fancied visiting Norway.
PIGGY UPDATE-The piggies are growing daily and are very sweet and very happy. Whenever I enter the room they go weeking crazy and demand to be fed and they really seem to enjoy cuddles. Mouth the larger piggy is such a baby really, when I sit him on my lap and give him a cuddle he slowly creeps up to my neck and snuggles in and starts to purr- I think I forget that they are still only a few weeks separated from their mother. I have no really knowledge of animal psychology but can guinea pigs miss their mothers?
Beauty appears to be a walking advert for Hello Kitty at the moment, her sisters who love her very much keep buying her Hello Kitty things that they see in town. Her latest present is a Hello Kitty water bottle from H&M, H&M seem to be doing all things Hello Kitty at the moment which is keeping Fiona happy. And talking of Fiona, yesterday evening Fiona went for an interview at IKEA- if she gets a job then that will be daughter number 4 to work for the company!
PIANOMAN UPDATE-Still enjoying the pain relief! Still not happy with the no mobile phone rule. Today or tomorrow he should be moved from Coronary Care to a ward. From today he is able to have non-family visitors-Let The Fun Begin! 'A' the Branch P visited Sunday, he still only looks 19! Let's hope I miss the visit from the friendly neighbourhood GP. I will keep you all informed-thanks for the phone calls, it was good to hear from you.
Time to get Beauty out of bed for school! She doesn't fall asleep until midnight but if I put her to be earlier she will be up at stupid o'clock- she is like a University student with her love of bed EXCEPT she does get up a little before Hollyoaks comes on TV in the evening!
More news later from the less than exciting life of a middle aged woman in Wales!
