My Weekly Latest Issue February 5

Cover of My Weekly latest issue February 9 with Jane Danson and comfort food recipes

As I type this letter, it’s 3pm in the afternoon and the morning frost has not entirely lifted. There’s a clear blue sky outside, but the temperature has barely risen above freezing. Yes, we are deep in the heart of winter and it’s very, very cold! Apart from the continuously-refilled mug of steaming coffee that sits on my desk, what’s keeping me warm is all the fantastic content in this week’s issue. We’ve done our best to keep you cosy with comforting recipes, fabulous fiction, inspiring interviews and much more. Have a great week!

Silent Witness

Emilia Fox, star of our favourite forensic detective series, tells us she’s begun to wonder whether she’s in the wrong job! Belying their super-serious pose,  Emilia and co-stars Liz Carr (Clarissa), David Caves (Jack) and Richard Lintern (Thomas) share some entertaining glimpses of life behind the scenes.

I've worked on a variety of regional newspapers and national magazines. My Weekly is a fantastic, warm-hearted brand with an amazing, talented team. I'm a sub-editor and particularly love working on fiction and the advice pages - I feel I should know all the secrets of eternal life, health and happiness by now, but hey, we all need that weekly reminder!
