Bad Wilf launched in 2010, as a South London-based Doctor Who podcast. Over the years it has evolved into so much more. We cover movies, TV shows, audio dramas, news, reviews, interviews and general nonsense, we used to do it under the influence of alcohol. But we're old now, so we drink decaf tea.

    A Conversation with Tahj Miles from Death in Paradise

    A Conversation with Tahj Miles from Death in Paradise

    In this episode of the podcast, Martyn sits down with Tahj Miles, a talented actor best known for his role as Marlon Pryce in the hit BBC series, Death in Paradise. Tahj takes us on his journey to becoming an actor, sharing his struggles and triumphs along the way.

    Starting at the tender age of seven, Tahj’s grandfather suggested his mum find an outlet for his endless energy, and so began his journey to drama school in Hackney. It wasn’t long before he landed his first role in the musical Oliver, kicking off a successful career in the performing arts. Tahj went on to work on well-known musical productions, such as The Lion King, Matilda, and Bugsy Malone but ultimately found his true
    passion for acting.



    During the podcast, Tahj also discusses his experiences filming Death in Paradise on location in the Caribbean. Despite facing challenges such as weather conditions and adapting to a different accent, Tahj finds it to be an incredibly rewarding experience.

    He also talks about his relationships with fellow actors on set and how they supported him in his personal and professional growth.

    Finally, Tahj reflects on his work playing Simba in the stage adaptation of The Lion King and his experience working with Sir Steve McQueen on Small Axe.

    Through it, all, Tahj’s passion, dedication and infectious enthusiasm shine through.

    Check out Tahj's podcast here.

Decent

Great podcast, may have lost its way a bit in recent years. But I gather Martin has had some health issues. Hopefully normal service will resume as soon as he’s able.
