The Man Who Fell to Earth arrives in UK

Several weeks after The Man Who Fell to Earth premiered on Showtime in the US, it's been released in the UK. The incredible - and incredibly ambitious - sci-fi series, in which ZoŽ plays the enigmatic, quick-witted Watt, is available to stream on the new Paramount Plus service.

Revisit Love Hurts and Girlfriends

Talking of streaming, all three series of Love Hurts, the 90s BBC comedy-drama that made ZoŽ a household name, are now available on BritBox UK. All those photos on the streaming service's website bring back so many memories! She and co-star Adam Faith acted wonderfully together.

If you're a night owl, you can also revisit another fan favourite, ITV drama Girlfriends by the much-missed scriptwriter Kay Mellor, in which Zoe plays kind-hearted but put-upon Gail. It's being repeated in the wee small hours on Tuesdays (3 am, ITV1). If you're not up that late, you can catch up on the ITV Hub.

Pictured out and about in London

ZoŽ and her husband, Gawn Grainger, have been photographed enjoying some of the best entertainment London has to offer. They watched the tennis at Wimbledon on 28 June, then on 13 July were pictured arriving for the press night for musical Anything Goes, starring Kerry Ellis, Denis Lawson and Simon Callow, at the Barbican. The next day, ZoŽ was among the special guests at the press night for Jack Absolute Flies Again, a comedy starring Caroline Quentin at the National Theatre.

Meeting fans at LFCC

Countless more photos were taken of ZoŽ at the London Film and Comic Con on 9 July. Huge numbers of fans travelled to the vast Olympia events space, and I've been told the queues to meet her were particularly long.

You can see ZoŽ signing a Harry Potter poster on Instagram. My favourite autograph and photo of the day belong to Jenny Fassenfelt, an artist, photographer and Doctor Who fan who went to the trouble of drawing a portrait of Zoe as last human Lady Cassandra.

Thanks to Karoline for her help.
