On Tuesday 22nd February, actor Nicholas Courtney passed away in London at the age of 81. Courtney, who had been living with cancer for many years, is most famous for his role as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart (pictured) in the British science fiction series Doctor Who, performing with five of the different actors to play the title role. Tom Baker, who played the Doctor with Courtney in the 1980s, said "we shall miss him terribly".
Somewhat sleep deprived on account of our new circumstances, namely little Soren Albert Bateman. There's a picture over at The Lotus Window, along with a short birth story for those who are into their baby stuff.
The Game will resume next week and we'll get straight back into the Fiction campaign - lots of fun stuff coming up, so watch this space!
Next month (6th March) I have another service at Chorlton Unitarian Church. This one is entitled Sin and Karma (Together at Last!). You can read about it over at their website. If you're in the Manchester area you'd be more than welcome to come along and listen in.
My wife’s due date was yesterday, and I think it might be best if I declare my paternity leave now, rather than having to tie up the blog when my son finally decides to make his appearance. I’ll aim to be back on or shortly after the Feast of St. Hoochie (February 15th) with lots more nonsense as the Fiction Campaign continues…
Update: Still no baby as of February 11th so I'm going to need a little more paternity leave than expected; let's say March 1st. That should to give the little blighter enough time to emerge and settle into the world.
