When I joined the Sunday Times the people I was competing with were all 10 or 15 years younger, they all had double firsts from Oxford or Cambridge, they were all bright as new pins.

The qubit acts as a bridge between the microscopic and the macroscopic worlds.
I have a new show now called 'The Bridge,' where I play a guy who's a real-life guy. My character's based on the life of a guy named Craig Bromell who was a cop for 12 years and then became head of the police association, so basically the president of the union for 85,000 cops.

I remember going up and doing 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' with Paul Simon, Santana playing up there with us.
If women built the bridges or were meant to build the bridges, then they would have done it.
