As you may remember, I got to go to the premiere of EXTANT a few weeks ago – the new sci-fi thriller from the States starring Halle Berry.
As well as writing a review for MostlyFilm.com, it inspired me to blog about what series to download for a back-to-back watch-a-thon on a long-haul flight. Other must-see shows included House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black, The Honourable Woman and The 100. Here’s the full post that I wrote for Thomson’s travel blog…
So, the Torres takeover of the Thomson travel blog has finally drawn to a close.
This past week, my driving guide to Majorca has featured on the holiday giant’s website. The idea was to try and show a different side to the island, away from the tourist masses and the package resorts.
Ses Paisses, Majorca
More Ses Paisses, Majorca
Anyhow, here’s the final instalment, which features the Moorish town of Alcudia, the Stone Age remains of Ses Paisses and the incredible subterranean wonder that is the Caves of Arta.

Extant UK Premiere
Well, you don’t do that every week – pop to BAFTA, meet a robot and watch a premiere. But that’s precisely what I did…
Extant – Canapes and Cocktails
One of my friends is the editor at Mostlyfilm.com – a cool blog about, yes you’ve guessed it, films. Well, films and telly. Anyway, she asked me if I’d write a review of EXTANT, the new sci-fi tele-series starring Halle Berry that aired this evning on Amazon Prime Instant Video.
Being a) a writer by trade and b) a card-carrying science fiction geek, I jumped at the offer with both hands. And so, on Tuesday night, I rocked up at BAFTA in central London for an exclusive press screening.
Before I settled down in the stall for the showing, I got to pose for a selfie with a robot. Yes, a robot. Reason being, EXTANT’s storyline includes a sub-plot about androids with artificial intelligence.
They’re taking over!
Anyhow, here’s what I thought about EXTANT. Oh, and thanks again to the lovely folk at Mostlyfilm.com – much appreciated.
Port Andratx, Majorca
Merci Thomson for posting my Majorcan itineraries on your travel blog this week.
St Elm, Majorca
Here’s the link to my penultimate guide. In today’s post, I make a beeline for the yacht-filled marina at Port Andratx, the market town of Andratx and the oh-so pretty bay of St Elm.
Well, it’s day 3 of my takeover on the Thomson travel blog. I feel like a mini-celeb, particularly today as they’ve stuck up a pic of my ugly mug on the homepage. Eek!
Today’s post sees me chart another scenic driving route across Majorca – this time ticking off the north of the island. Ports of call include Lluc Monastery and the Roman town of Pollensa. Enjoy…
Yesterday saw my guide to Majorca go live on the Thomson travel blog. Woop! Woop!
Part deux was posted today. The second instalment sees me tick off the island’s trio of too-pretty-by-half towns, namely Soller, Deia and Valldemossa.
Interestingly, the latter was the shack d’amour of the composer Frederick Chopin and his French bit of fluff, Madame George Sand. For the full lowdown, read the complete guide here…
Driving around Majorca in my Fiat 500
I’m rather excited. Reason being, an article I wrote is the headline post on the Thomson travel blog. Earlier in the year, I jetted off to Majorca – or Mallorca if you’re posh – for a little tripette. While I was there I devised some driving routes around the island which I road tested – literally. They’ll be featured on the Thomson blog over the course of this week. Today sees me tick off Majorca’s chic captial, Palma. Oh, and I wax lyrical about Fiat 500s…
