Joanna Lumley filming ‘The Greek Odyssey’ in Patmos

Dimitri Horne writes:

In May 2011 the gorgeous Joanna Lumley visited Patmos together with a film crew from London. The weather was very pleasant and sunny and Joanna was in good spirits.

I was honoured to be her host and showed her around the caves of the Apocalypse, the Monastery of St John as well as our houses.

The programme will be called the Greek Odyssey and will be shown on ITV1 later in the year.

Two Priests meet

Father Graham Miller of St James’s Church Paddington, who is a young Anglican vicar and friend, also visited Patmos in May.

The photo was taken outside St Georges Church in Hora and shows Father Graham together with Father Martianos, a Greek Orthodox monk who resides in the Monastery. Later that day Father Martinianos showed us around the Monastery.

The lady in the photo is of Mrs Efthimia, a local lady, who is a neighbour and takes care of the Church.
