So, we've had a mega long walk from South Kensington to Covent Garden where we pause to eat. I'm thinking it's about 9.45pm when we pass through St Martin's Lane near the back of Wyndham's Theatre. Consequently, my 'jokey' request to head to see how many fans are already loitering for her stage door exit isn't seriously thinking I can join them for the Tennant and Tate emergence.
Actually, the time is closer to 10.15pm which as all good Much Ado attendees will know is just close enough to the exit time to justify loitering...
The fact I had a 'spare' unsigned play programme with me in my bag is of course beside the point.
Neil stands back and lets me weave a space through, befriending (luckier and more organised) girls than I who had smartly bagged the first signing slots. Well at least I got the programme signed and proved that if you CAN get those perfect positions then it is possible to get a cracking photo with David/Catherine. If you come here and recognise this very happy American girl over here for the summer then do pass on the photo!
Sadly all I could manage was the Tennant hairline...!
And yet another blurry picture of delectable Catherine (what is it with my inability to stop camera shake on taking her picture?!)
Thankfully once I had climbed out of the melee, Neil said "I've done a video!"
Bless - it does capture the madness of the event! And at least it gave me the chance to get a programme signed for Chrissie!
