12-11-2010 mrjasonlor: @Tom_In_Oz_ to me he already is and even so he does a lot community activities like common people would. I think he's gonna be alright.
12-11-2010 Tom_In_Oz_: @mrjasonlor I hope @russelltovey doesn't go all "hollywood" on us. Best trait he has is being blokey. He could move to Oz and fit in easily.
12-11-2010 mrjasonlor: @Tom_In_Oz_ he's always himself and that's what I love about him. Dear god can you can hear me @russelltovey Don't ever change mate. Cheers.
12-11-2010 markdotf: @Tom_In_Oz_ Wish I could make it - who wants to fly me to London to confess my love to @russelltovey and hope not to get a restraining order?
Queer goings on
12-11-2010 myinfamy: I had no idea Russell Tovey was a fellow queer until @AttitudeMag told me, so my crush is not quite as guilty now! ;D
12-11-2010 Back2Stonewall_: I watched The History Boys last night. It's like the Gay UK Dead Poets Society (And stars Russell Tovey)

Tom in the news
Above: Tom in Oz reporting from Hethersett Norfolk UK. This is the town where my First Fleet convict ancestor Elizabeth Rope (nee Pulley) was born and lived until she was sentenced to transportation to Oz. After sentencing she was initially incarcerated at Norwich Castle. It was here she acted as a midwife for Susannah Cable (nee Holmes) who had fallen pregnant while jailed. Susannah and her husband Henry Cable were sent to Oz along with Elizabeth in the First Fleet. When Elizabeth arrived in Oz she formed a liaison with Anthony Rope in the first week of settlement and thereafter married. They had the first recorded European child conceived and born wholly in Oz....of course there were other children born on the way during the voyage of the First Fleet but Anthony and Elizabeth Rope have their claim as the first couple to have a "made in Oz" baby.
Was this Australia's first joke? Rope, Pulley and Cable...
Today, I was interviewed by a Norfolk reporter re an article about Elizabeth's descendants. I spent the afternoon at Norwich Castle talking to an archivist and donating 15 years of research (450 pages) for their upcoming display which features some of the convicts of Norwich who helped forge the nation of Australia.
Tomorrow I move off to investigate Rochford Essex, the birthplace of Anthony Rope. This is a little town next door to Billericay Essex where Russell Tovey grew up. Anthony Rope was tried at Chelmsford.
