It's cold. Waking up this morning, I had to fight off a thousand urges to stay wrapped up in bed. Instead, I peel the warm duvet off me and roll out of bed onto the cold carpet and into the shower.

'I am a man more sinned against than sinning!'

Thus Paul Copley comes to the end of his first speech of the storm scene, a spine-tingling and majestic growl to which we have become accustomed over the past few months.

Over 'n' out

First of all, I'm gonna kick off this blog by saying 'sorry'. Sorry that I've neglected you all for the last two months. The show has been all-consuming and (stupidly) once I missed a glut of blogs – I soon found it difficult to catch up.
