We flew in on Monday. I’ve never been to San Diego before but Mandip and I haven’t seen much of it because we haven’t had much time to leave our hotel.

Tuesday was our first full day and it was basically taken up with press interviews, more press interviews, and trying to stay awake because of the jet lag! A lot of the interviews were round tables, where we were sat in studios talking to people over the phone. Our schedule has worked really well so far, because it’s basically given us two days of interview practice. After you’ve heard a lot of the questions you know who’ll be able to give the best answers to them. It gets a bit tricky when people ask us about when the show is going out, details of specific episodes and anything that really gets into what the stories are about. We can’t talk about that sort of thing, so whenever anyone asks about anything like that I know what to do – I look at Chris and let him handle it. He’s the boss and that’s his area.
