I played all the parts in the National Theatre of Scotland's production of Macbeth.

The show also starred Myra McFadyen and Ali Craig and was directed by John Tiffany and Andy Goldberg. We opened at the Tramway in Glasgow and then played the Lincoln Center Festival in New York City.

See these videos to hear me talking about this incredible challenge and utterly overwhelming experience.






Urban Secrets

I hosted a series of travel documentaries for Sky Atlantic, where I walked around various cities in the UK and Ireland, finding out their urban secrets.

Each show took the form of a walk, during which I would come across a motley collection of celebrities, locals and experts who showed me hidden gems in London (2 shows), Brighton, Bristol, Liverpool, Newcastle, Dublin and Glasgow

Then I did a concert at the Alice Tully Hall for the Lincoln Center, another at XL Lounge which was a benefit for the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) and several appearances at galas including the Public Theatre's at Joe's Pub and the Lunchbox Fund.

Masterpiece Mystery

Once more I returned into the breach as host of Masterpiece Mystery, coming out of the shadows to set the scene for the PBS mystery fare.


In my seemingly endless quest to be a voice in every children's animated TV show, I recorded an episode of Arthur in Boston, when I was there doing my Masterpiece Mystery duties.  I played a poodle.  I know, I need to break out of the typecasting box.
