News Updates Back At Last!
  In case you've been wondering where all the updates have been for the last 4 weeks, let's just say we've been experiencing technical difficulties...which means a new PC is now top of my Christmas list! 
 
October/November News Round Up
 
  • The professional critics couldn't seem to agree about the recent Johnson Over Jordan production at West Yorkshire Playhouse, so here's a review by a fellow fan - Catherine Ellis.  Anyone else who attended and is willing to share their review, please e-mail me. (Thanks Catherine)
  • Back on October 5, Patrick received the Yorkshire Man of the Year award at a ceremony in Leeds. Read about the event at the Yorkshire Post and Thisisleeds web sites. (Thanks to Michele)
  • The October 13-19 issue of the Radio Times magazine (UK) featured an article about Patrick in their 'Teach Yourself' section. 
    Transcript available here.
  • At the end of October, BBC 2 began a complete re-run of the TNG series with 2 episodes a week being shown on a Tuesday and Wednesday night at 6:45 pm. Wonder if they'll finally show the 3rd season episode 'The High Ground'  which has never aired on BBC due to supposed sensitive political issues?
  • For those of you not based in the UK who missed BBC 2's celebration of Star Trek's 35th anniversary, you can now read the interviews with Patrick on the BBC web site.  (thanks to Karen Rourk)
  • Each year the Sunday Times newspaper publishes a list of the highest paid 500 people in the UK . This year saw Stewart listed as joint 7th in the Film and TV list, and 123rd overall.
  • Those canny folk at Chivas Brothers made it so for the person who bid £4100 for the chance to visit the set of the next Star Trek film and have lunch with a certain captain. Sorry I wasn't able to get the site updated in time for those of you who like me, wanted to bid on this and help raise funds for the River Fund. Think I'll drown my sorrows with a glass of Scotch...

Originally Trek X was scheduled for an October start and X-Men 2 for early 2002 leaving Patrick chance to do some theatre work later in the year...
