Theatre column for Telegraph's Walker

By Dominic Ponsford

After auditioning for a succession of writers, The Sunday Telegraph
has chosen Tim Walker as its new theatre critic, taking over from John
Goss.

Walker will continue to write the paper’s Mandrake diary column.

He
said: “John had made The Sunday Telegraph’s theatre column the most
influential and respected in Fleet Street, so I am honoured to have
been entrusted with it.

“I have a passion for the theatre, but a
profound respect, too, for the newspaper’s readers. I shall try to
stimulate them and make them laugh with my columns and I shall not
point them in the direction of any play unless I really believe in it.”

On
retaining the Mandrake column, Walker said: “I think it’s what they
call multi-skilling. I have been doing the diary for three years now
and was starting to wonder – in the words of that rather under-rated
actor, Ronald Reagan – where is the rest of me?

“I think, however, that I’d have missed Mandrake if I’d had to give it up, so I feel now that I have the best of both worlds.”
