'I've just shot my last scene, and I feel very sad. We're working like mad to keep the show at a peak, but we are miserable; we can't understand why they're pulling it when it's just started doing well. Tonight there's a crew and cast party, and then that'll be a wrap; we'll be leaving in dribs and drabs until the end of next week. It'll be absolute hell when everyone starts saying goodbye; it's not just a job here, it's a way of life. But as always with actors, give them a disaster and they'll take it with gallows humour. We still say it's been a great year we wouldn't have missed for anything.'
