My husband John Thaw worked with many directors, some of whom cut their teeth working on the Sweeney, Kavanagh QC and Morse before going on to illustrious careers.

Jack Gold was there at the start of his professional life in the film The Bofors Gun (1968) and at the end when he devised and directed the beautiful tribute after John’s death.

Byker Grove: Then and Now - what happened to the kids from the Grove?

Byker! Byker! Byker! Byker Grove! A-ha, A-ha, A-ha!

Geordie youth club drama Byker Grove was one of the greatest children's TV shows of the '80s and '90s, and next month it will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a special party in Newcastle.

But what ever happened to the stars of the show? We look back at some of the programme's breakout stars and forgotten favourites.

1. Declan Donnelly played Duncan

In the show's first series, Dec was going solo as 'Duncan' and it wasn't until he was united with Ant's 'Pj' that he truly became a central figure in the series. While they are remembered as being best buddies on the show, Duncan did end up nabbing Pj's girlfriend Debbie. After Pj went blind in a paintball accident. Hardly the stuff of best mates in retrospect.

2. Ant McPartlin played Pj

Responsible for scaring a whole generation of children out of ever going paintballing,

Paul Rogers obituary

Actor who played many major Shakespearean roles on the stage

Few actors played as many major Shakespearean roles as did Paul Rogers, a largely forgotten and seriously underrated performer, who has died aged 96. It was as though he was barnacled in those parts, undertaken at the Old Vic in the 1950s, by the time he played his most famous role, the vicious paterfamilias Max in Harold Pinter's The Homecoming at the Aldwych theatre in 1965 (and filmed in 1973).

Staunch, stolid and thuggish, with eyes that drilled through any opposition, Rogers's Max was a grumpy old block of granite, hewn on an epic scale, despite the flat cap and plimsolls – horribly real. Peter Hall's production for the Royal Shakespeare Company was monumental; everything was grey, chill and cheerless in John Bury's design, set off firstly by a piquant bowl of green apples and then by the savage acting.

Legal TV: is fiction safer than fact?

TV documentaries The Briefs and The Murder Trial illustrate the difficulties of broadcasting 'real-life crime' stories. No wonder fictional lawyers get most of the airtime

Crime fiction is a huge industry, but crime fact is just as appealing to an audience: as soon as sentence is passed in a murder trial, newspapers publish pages of background articles and most book-shops have a "Real Life Crime" section.

The genre is also popular on television: The Briefs, an observational documentary series following lawyers as they prepare and present cases in court, returns to ITV tonight (9pm), coming a week after Channel 4's pioneering The Murder Trial, in which cameras were admitted to the Scottish courts during the case of a man accused of murdering his wife.

But, though legal TV makes a pleasant alternative to cop series from Scandinavia or New Zealand, this is a fraught form for broadcasting. It's striking

Jeff Stelling, Ashley Walters and Paul Whitehouse: Bafta TV awards 2013

Three big stars of the small screen reveal their television secrets

Jeff Stelling: the voice of reason

Jeff Stelling can sum up his Soccer Saturday show in three words: "Five blokes gossiping." Or in four: "The male Loose Women." The former Countdown host points out that he has been watching football with his "mates" for the last 20 years, and knows how lucky he is. "It's a strange concept," he says, "and I was the first to say it wouldn't work."

He believes the secret to his longevity is supporting Hartlepool ("the fans pity me"), but few can reel off football stats like Stelling, not to mention anchoring six hours of live TV every week. How does he wind down at the end of a shift? "I go home and watch telly with the kids. It could be Harry Hill's TV Burp, The Voice, you name it. If my wife

Twelve top TV lawyers

Lawyers don't only join the profession for the intellectual challenge, the chance to right wrongs, and the money. They also do it because it looks good on TV

Maxine Peake in Silk

Barristers complain on Twitter about the minor inaccuracies, and Maxine Peake strikes some as unconvincing. But at a time when the criminal bar is struggling to attract the best talent, it is probably the best recruiting tool the profession has. Few other series have portrayed so faithfully how sets operate and their members hustle for work. Rt

North Square

A decade before Peter Moffat struck gold with Silk for the BBC, he wrote North Square for Channel 4. Set in Leeds, it stars some of the same cast (notably a younger Rupert Penry-Jones) and acquired something of a cult following among lawyers. Unfortunately, lawyers alone can't sustain a programme, and North Square was axed after one series. But

Bafta TV special: Jo Brand, Charlie Higson and Rebecca Front

Stars of the small screen reveal their TV secrets

The stand up: Jo Brand

Jo Brand bats away the suggestion that she's a national treasure. "To me that's someone who has a global reach, like Helen Mirren, or someone who's extremely good, like Stephen Fry. I don't have that. I've just calmed down a bit, and that's only because once I had children I was so bloody knackered I could be nothing but calm." Though her audience has widened as she's written novels, appeared on panel shows and acted in the superlative comedy Getting On, Brand says she's planning to go back to stand-up. "The world has become a horrible place for women again and I want to be gobby about it." Before then, though, she's very happy to talk about TV. "I had aspirational working-class parents who thought you shouldn't let your kids watch crap on telly. If my

Ewan McGregor's 'many, many, many' pre-marriage flings

Ewan McGregor admits he slept with 'many, many, many women' before meeting wife Eve Mavrakis. The 41-year-old 'Trainspotting' star met French production designer Eve, 45, on the set of TV show 'Kavanagh QC' before hitting the big time, and says he instantly realised she was a game changer.

Hugh Dancy: 'I was told I'd always be cast in posh parts'

Nice Brit abroad Hugh Dancy on playing bully boys – and avoiding costume dramas

When Hugh Dancy took his first steps in acting more than a decade ago along the usual British TV paths (Kavanagh QC, BBC adaptations of classic novels), he worried about being typecast. "The doubting part of me assumed that I would spend my career playing posh characters in costume dramas," the 36-year-old says when we meet at his publicists' office in Soho. "At least one casting director told me bluntly that that's what I'd be doing, so get used to it."

He's done the occasional costume drama since, but Dancy's background, growing up in an academic household in the Midlands and studying English at Oxford, didn't stop him from playing a New Yorker with Asperger's syndrome in the acclaimed 2009 indie drama Adam – and that casting director probably didn't foresee the "gay, Buddhist, wine-bar owning, marathon-running cancer patient
