My side-blog which gets updated ...randomly. Has recently fallen prey to a distraction called Matilda.


The owner of this blog is fully uncaring of who you think is overrated, underrated, siderated or just potentially a bit askew, has issues when it comes to answering messages in timely manner, tends to be grumpy for no reason at all but doesn't bite unless asked to.

...plus tends to write stuff on this sidebar and then forget all about it.

So then. Violet is sort of beyond amazing.

Also, isn’t Joseph Davenport supposed to be, you know, gone. (And not randomly understudying Michael 0_o …what have you done to Jonathan. ..and where is Joshua anyway?) Adding now that I have reached better wifi: you would NOT have thought this was the…

I think that can possibly be safely surmised from the post ;)

Violet’s Naughty. (I know someone posted a version. This is more of an excercise on ‘how difficult is it to do this on my phone’ while I wait for my camera to charge…)

I think Joshua is on a break just like Haley will in a couple couple of weeks :) Any other understudies on tonight?

Nah, just Joseph.

Adding now that I have reached better wifi: you would NOT have thought this was the kids’ first show. Especially since the only *properly* visible fluff was that Trunch failed to catch his ribbon wand at the end of hammer. And that just tends to happen. The other noticeable one was a failed prop change which left Violet to do the chokey chant scene while holding the tube of super glue instead of a book. One of those ‘if you know it’s wrong’ - type things. (She did have like a *split-second* saucer-eyed uh-oh look about it. )

Earley schoolboy set to star in front of millions in Dr Who this weekend

11-year-old Remi Gooding stars in tomorrow’s episode, called ‘Listen’

A schoolboy is making his screen debut on one of the nation’s biggest TV shows this weekend. The 11-year-old from Earley also made his first appearance on a West End stage in a major new musical on Tuesday. and as if that was not enough, Remi Gooding has just started at his new school, Maiden Erlegh.

The talented youngster is appearing in the new Doctor Who episode called Listen tomorrow. Remi said he is “really, really, really excited” about seeing the show when it is broadcast on BBC One.

He said: “Mum told me one day after school there were auditions for Doctor Who and asked me if I’d want to do it. I said definitely.”

Remi went through three auditions before securing the role of Rupert Pink. He said: “I didn’t get told there on the day, they called us later and when I got it I went crazy. I was screaming and dancing around.”

Remi spent a week in February filming the episode with the Doctor, Peter Capaldi and his companion Jenna Coleman just outside Cardiff. He said: “That was awesome, it was really good fun.”

Remi has been asked not to give too much information about the plot but the official BBC synopsis says the Doctor will come face to face with something or someone that chills him to the bone. We are asked: “What exactly happens when the Doctor is alone and afraid?”

The trailer for Listen, featuring Remi, was shown immediately after last Saturday’s show and mum Sedge Gooding said it took her by surprise. She said: “I was sitting watching the TV and wasn’t really expecting it and when it came on I stood up and screamed.”

Ms Gooding was a dancer in shows touring around the UK and abroad when she was younger and performing runs in the family. Younger son Emile, nine, won the All England Dance competition last year and Joel, 12, is a member of the Strictly Street Dance Company.

Remi, who also plays for Reading FC’s Elite academy team, has been busy rehearsing for his West End role during the summer holidays and took to the stage this week.

The family have been asked not to name the musical Remi is appearing in but a quick web search of his name finds him linked with a hit show based on a certain Roald Dahl novel with songs by Tim Minchin.

But mum is making sure the showbiz life does not distract Remi from his studies at Maiden Erlegh School where he started last Thursday.

Matilda / National Tour - Role Of Matilda

(Age: 8 – 10) **MUST BE 4’2” OR SHORTER** Strong singer and confident speaker.

 Good understanding of text and intelligent approach to acting. Matilda should look like the runt of the litter. She does not appear posh or contemporary, rather more damaged and weak from a working class background. However, she is extremely bright, fearless and focused, and able to speak assertively. Matilda is a fiercely clever child, living in an abusive household she escapes into books and her imagination.
