Golly, is it that long since I last posted? Whoops. I’ve been quite busy over at [TV Today](http://blogs.thestage.co.uk/tvtoday/), as well as implementing quite a few technology infrastructure changes at The Stage which nobody else will notice (other than a substantially faster web server with — touch wood — no regular outages). And lots of other stuff which I can’t talk about for various reasons.
Any way, I just wanted to post that the most depressing thing I read this morning was in an otherwise enlightening interview with Stephen Daldry in this mornings _[Guardian](http://arts.guardian.co.uk/theatre/drama/story/0,,2279401,00.html)_:
> Sydney Pollack is seriously ill.
Terribly sad to hear. I can’t find other reference to his illness elsewhere on the internet, so I keep my fingers crossed that it’s something from which he can recover. His [roll call of films he’s either produced, directed or acted in](http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001628/) is mightily impressive, and includes some brilliant work.
And now as I post this I realise that my last post was about Kev passing away. Gosh, this is a fun subject to resume blogging with, isn’t it?
