I should be sleeping, but something has been keeping me awake. It was the niggling half-memory of a tweet I read while on the road this afternoon, something that I knew I had to bring to you but I forgot in all of the Hobbit excitement.

That’s John Barrowman himself, and he’s making it pretty clear, I think.

Or is there some other reason for this tweet coming today?

UPDATE: Best information now says that production starts in the week of April 22nd. But that’s not official. We’ll keep you posted.

Incidentally, the picture at the head of the post is by Mark Satchwill. I chose it for a particular reason…
