I do read on holiday, but it tends to be very lowbrow. I'm into really camp biographies, and I'm a shameless fan of Jilly Cooper.
I haven't done as much proper travelling as I'd like to have done. However, I know how important the weather is for my mood and spirits.

My favourite programme of all time is 'Weeds'; the first three or four series are perfection.
Filming 'Doctor Who' is so incredibly different to 'Spooks.' Near to the surface, there's quite a silly atmosphere. A lot of the times, you're on the verge of giggles because it's so over the top.
I've had more fan mail from 'Doctor Who' than anything. People love the show so passionately.
A lot of shows peak after a series and never get it back, but 'Breaking Bad' keeps the tension up all the time.
