Wednesday 30th January, 2013 Press Clips
We previously mentioned this wonderful painting of Su last year but now there is a little more info on it at 'flickr'. The art is by Genevieve Murray, who says of Su and the painting: "Su Pollard, an actress I met through a family/friends get together was completely mad and hilarious. What struck me about her was her vibrant aura and style. I think I have captured her effervescence through use of colour and palette knife inspired by Nick Lepard."

.The Journal: Nostalgia: Oh, Doctor Beeching!
Sunday 20th January, 2013 Press Clips
Su is mentioned in a new article by The Journal on the 50th anniversary of the Beeching Report.

His report, which led to the decimation of this country’s railways, was published 50 years ago turning Dr Richard Beeching into Britain’s most hated civil servant. But has history been fair on him? Mike Kelly reports

Mention the name Dr Richard Beeching to people of a certain age and they’ll give an involuntary shudder. They call Beeching ‘the mad axe man’ who ripped the guts out of Britain’s rail system, whose recommendations led to the closure of over 2,000 stations and thousands of miles of track, mainly on rural and industrial lines.

Their thoughts are perhaps in the song over the end titles of the 1960s set comedy series ‘Oh Dr Beeching!’ about the fight to save a rural railway line, sung by actress Su Pollard.

A reminder that the 2010 Christmas Special episode of Benidorm, in which Su guest stars, airs tonight at 9pm on network ITV1/STV/UTV.

Benidorm: ITV1: Friday 4th January: 9.00pm
Christmas Special Festive episode from Boxing Day 2010. There may be plenty of sun, sangria and Santa, but for Madge it does not look like being a happy Christmas as the Garveys come to stay. With Mel stuck in Marrakech, she has to organise the Benidorm Palace's seasonal spectacular - and the show's female star has gone missing. Donald and Jacqueline check in at the Solana with some intriguing friends, and it appears Noreen's male travel companion is more than he appears. Su Pollard, Louie Spence and Brian Murphy guest star, with Sheila Reid, Siobhan Finneran, Tim Healy, Steve Pemberton, Janine Duvitski and Elsie Kelly. (Also airing on the +1 channels)
