The shadow lengthens...

Just appeared on the internet is my review for BBC History magazine of the first volume of  Charles Moore's biography of Margaret Thatcher. It has its virtues, but I'd recommend Jonathan Aitkens in preference.

The long shadow of Margaret Thatcher

I had the great pleasure on Sunday of appearing with Beatrix Campbell and Richard Weight at the Southbank Centre, talking about the impact and legacy of Thatcherism.

Coincidentally, the previous day my review of Jonathan Aitken's new book on Margaret Thatcher appeared in the Daily Telegraph.

My thanks to Steve Thomas of the Southbank, and to Sameer Rahim of the Daily Telegraph.

Dylan and the Daleks

I had a splendid time in Swansea today, speaking about Terry Nation and the Daleks at the Dylan Thomas Festival's special Doctor Who day. Many thanks to Leslie McMurty for making it such fun, and to Matthew Kilburn, who was wonderful.

In the event that Tyrone is reading this: grand to see you - please email me sometime via my website.
