Not that I was confined to my ward. In a convenient Bedknobs and Broomsticks touch, my bed was able to travel all over the world: to a home in Malaysia for a quite delicious meal; a New York hotel off Times Square; a pleasant house party in Brighton; a Monaco-themed bistro in Chelsea; a Sealink ferry, where (details, details) the medical staff had company logos on their lanyards; a Star Wars memorabilia store in Turin; and – more seriously – a board reception to celebrate the successful creation of the first tranche of merchandising for the series. It was fun to be wheeled among the television grandees in my bed, glad-handing studio bosses and money men.
