Absolution

ARQIVA SILVER AWARD WINNER 2015

Just to say – myself and my friend Pete Donaldson (who I last worked with on 6Music and Xfm) will be hosting a brand new show on Absolute Radio every Thursday night from 8pm…

In it, we will Be Men. We will Man Up. We will discuss our Man-ness. We will study each others’ Manhood.

That sounded wrong.

Anyway, join in, if you are a man or have ever met one!

Plus! There’s a podcast here

Who is Tom Ditto?

18 Feb 14 


ditto
Well – that’s the question, isn’t it?

Luckily, I know. He’s the main character in my brand new book – WHO IS TOM DITTO? – and I hope you like him when the book comes out on April 24th.

Click HERE! to order a copy!

It was a challenge writing a second novel, but a fun one. Tom comes home one night to find a note from his girlfriend. The note says she has not left him – but that she’s gone. In his attempt to track her down, Tom stumbles across a very unusual group of people with a highly eccentric hobby…

Oh – and he’s fairly sure he’s being followed by an equally unusual girl…

PLUS! To celebrate the new book – I’ve only gone and brewed a beer! It’s called TOM DITTO IPA, and it’ll be available in all 76 Nicholson’s pubs up and down the country from March 25th!

I brewed it with the legendary Truman’s Brewery in the East End of London, and we tried to base it on the novel… so it’s got a bit of New York, a lot of London, and it’s an IPA… (that’ll make sense when you read the book…)

Hope you like them!

BAFTA

08 Mar 13 


BAFTAI’m amazed and thrilled to say that I won the BAFTA 2013 Games Award for Best Performer, for my narration on Mike Bithell’s excellent Thomas Was Alone.

Mike’s created a triple BAFTA-recognised game – also receiving nominations for his story, and for David Housden’s brilliant music.

We had a great night.

If you ever download games, I can’t recommend Thomas Was Alone highly enough. A link is here

Ex-X

14 Dec 12 


Well, this morning on the show, I announced that a new chapter is beginning.

I have loved doing the Xfm Breakfast Show every morning, and I think we’ve worked as hard as we can to be as good as we can. And I’ve loved getting to know the greatest listeners in the world. But it’s time to do other things.

I’ve always done lots of different stuff at once, and there are three or four big commitments that require my attention next year. I will miss the show, and my very good friends Matt, Dave, Steve and Simon.

But hey! Download the very best of my breakfast show right here… with guests from Dan Aykroyd to Robert Pattinson to Tim Minchin to Morgan Freeman to whoever else you can think of…

Man & Boy…

18 Oct 12 


Well, I headed back over to LA recently to pitch a new idea, and I’m really pleased to say that the excellent ABC got on board once more, as Deadline Hollywood have just reported.

It’s a script called Man & Boy, which will hopefully become something at some stage soon. I’m being deliberately vague because you never know with this stuff, but I’ll try my absolute best, and it’s very exciting.

Also on the team are director Julie Anne Robinson (The Middle), and producer David Miner (30 Rock, Parks & Recreation).

And in other news this month, check out GQ if you’re near a copy… I stayed for a few days in Ian Fleming’s Jamaican villa, GoldenEye, in order to see if I could harness some Bond magic and write my own chapter of a brand new Bond adventure. “For Queen & Country” is in the new issue…

Well, I Didn't Expect It To Look Like That #1: "Caprese Salad: Summer-ripe tomatoes and fresh, delicate mozzarella need only a drizzle of fresh pesto to shine in this simple summer salad."
