Tom in ‘Casualty’

The wonderful Tom Mannion was a guest star on Casualty last night. It wasn’t exactly a speaking role – Tom’s character was incoherent, apparently drunk, but actually suffering from a brain tumour – but fantastically acted. If you missed Tom on TV, you can catch him in Metamorphosis at the Lyric in Hammersmith; the production has just had extra dates added to its run, before going on tour.

I should declare an interest: Tom is a fellow member of St Mary’s church Islington (which may come as a surprise to people who saw him with Billie Piper in ‘Diary of a Call Girl’). Indeed, when I first went along to a service there, back in 1992, the service sheet announced ‘Music by Tom and Gerry’. Irresistible.
