I'm one of the Bond girls in Quantum of Solace, so I watched Daniel Craig in Enduring Love on DVD. Lots of the previous Bond girls have been quite negative about being a Bond girl – but I am thrilled to be in it! I saw The Other Boleyn Girl because my friend Eddie Redmayne, who also stars with me in the BBC drama Tess of the d'Urbervilles that we are filming right now in Bath, is in it. As filming Tess is quite depressing, I've been watching comedies to cheer myself up, including Garth Marenghi's Darkplace. I also watched The Shipping News with Julianne Moore as she is my favourite actress. I want to see Shine a Light because I love The Rolling Stones.

There has been a great deal of reporting about suicide in the press this week. There has been speculation about the tragic death of the actor Heath Ledger. There have been background reports about the trial of John Hogan, who jumped, with his two children in his arms, from a hotel balcony in Crete, killing his son. Most disturbingly, there has been fanciful elaboration about a cluster of suicides among young people in Bridgend, South Wales, including lurid suggestions that they may have been part of an "internet suicide cult". Yet what seems to have been lost this week is awareness that the reporting of suicide is a very sensitive business in itself.
