I was very sad to read of the death of David Ryall who starred in the Morse Episode, ‘Driven to Distraction’, series 4, episode 3., on December 25, 2014 at the age of 79. He played the character of the driving instructor, Derek Whittaker.

David Ryall was a mainstay of British Television and theatre for many years. Younger audiences will know him better as Elphias Doge in the Harry Potter films. For a full obituray click on the link below.

After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science. Firstly I have to complete an intensive year at college which starts at the end of August 2018. If I pass the college year I will then be able to go straight into Edinburgh University. A busy time ahead made even busier by my writing a book on the TV series, Lewis.
