    • yes i guess they just think audience impact but to be fair the BBC is the single most poor media organisation in the world in terms of marketing budget 🙂 every penny goes towards making stuff and hardly anything goes towards promoting what was made 😉

      • Jamie Parker, none the less! I love his prince Hal in Globe’s Henry IV part I and II. And Joel McCormack – Mr. Wickham has sucha a beautiful voice, I’ve heard him in a couple of radio dramas, playing Gawain in “The once and future king” and Boris Dubretzkoy in “War & Peace”. Thanks again! (and I have to read more carefully BBC Radio4 newsletter, I missed this!)

        • I “discovered” him in another radio drama, Hamlet and was… wow!!!! Then I’ve seen him in those globe plays (thanks to Digital Theatre), I’ve seen also The History Boys and I’m quite sure that his Henry V will be the souvenir I’ll buy next May in Globe’s gift shop 😀

          And he’s so funny in Twitter. I’m sorry for his disadventures with the British railways last winter, but I had so much fun reading those twits! 🙂

          Oh I had no more time (nor money :D) available for my London weekend, I sincerely hope to have the chance to see him live in the future.

        • ah yes, that Hamlet is really good! and he’s a fabulous singer too. We saw him this summer in Guys and Dolls and then he did a solo gig in London telling us funny stories about acting mishaps and auditions and peppering the things with some of his favourite tunes, a pleasure. Yes, i can definitely recommend that Henry if you want to treat yourself after the C 🙂 Will keep my eyes peeled on him and post. He’s hilarious on twitter 😀 The one thing i wish i’d seen and missed was when he did Cat on a hot tin roof http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/theatre/theatre-reviews/9599577/Cat-on-a-Hot-Tin-Roof-West-Yorkshire-Playhouse-A-Government-Inspector-Cheltenham-Everyman-review.html
