Tottering-by-Gently is a village in the fictional county of North Pimmshire, where Lord and Lady Tottering (Dicky and Daffy) live in the fading grandeur of their ancestral home, Tottering Hall. Daffy Tottering is a woman of a certain age who has been taken into the hearts of people all over the world. She reflects the problems facing women in their everyday life and is completely at one with herself while reflecting on inter-generational tensions and the differing perspectives of men and women, as well as dieting, aging, gardening, fashion, food, field sports, convention and much more. Reminiscent of the childhood annuals found in Christmas stocking but this one is for grown-ups. The Tottering-by-Gently Annual is a fun-filled collection of comic strips, cartoons, puzzles and games featuring the characters from Tottering-by-Gently.

About the Author:

Over the past twenty years Annie Tempest has worked for all the major national newspapers and life-style magazines and has had numerous collections of her work published. In 2009 the Cartoon Art Trust awarded her the Pont Prize for the Portrayal of the British Character. She has had eighteen one-woman shows in the UK and overseas. Annie created the 'Westenders' strip for the Daily Express in the 1980s, the 'Yuppies' strip for the Daily Mail during the late '80s and early 90s. Since the 1993 'Tottering-by-Gently' has appeared weekly in Country Life magazine. Annie lives in Stibbard, Norfolk Julian Fellowes, actor, writer, director, producer, was educated at Ampleforth, Magdalene College, Cambridge and Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art. He trained in repertory theatre at Northampton and Harrogate. As an actor he is probably best known for his portrayal of the incorrigible Lord Kilwillie in the BBC's 'Monarch of the Glen', as well as film roles in 'Shadowlands' with Anthony Hopkins, 'Damage' with Jeremy Irons and 'Tomorrow Never Dies' with Pierce Brosnan. As a writer for TV, he is responsible for the scripts of 'Little Lord Fauntleroy' (winner of an International EMMY, 1995) and 'The Prince and the Pauper' (nominated for a BAFTA, 1997), which he also produced. His first screenplay for the cinema was 'Gosford Park', directed by Robert Altman, which won a plethora of prizes, not least the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. He wrote the screenplay for the recent version of 'Vanity Fair', starring Reese Witherspoon, and 'The Young Victoria', currently in post-production. His debut as a Director, 'Separate Lies', starring Emily Watson, Tom Wilkinson and Rupert Everett, was released to acclaim in 2006. He presented the BBC series, 'Most Mysterious Murders'. As well as his novel 'Snobs' (a UK and US bestseller), he has written a children's book published in 2006, and the book for the musical of 'Mary Poppins' for Cameron Mackintosh and Disney. Julian is married with one son.
