A letter from Alan Radcliffe

Danradcliffe.com and danradcliffe.co.uk both received a preview of Daniel's new fan mail photo plus a letter from his father Alan which includes Daniel's official mailing address.

Daniel values each and every letter he receives from his fans, loves to hear from them and it is his intention that each letters receives a reply. Unfortunately, many letters arrive without the senders address or the writing is illegible and it is therefore impossible to reply. Sorry!

The only two addresses which should be used for Dan's fanmail are:

ARG Talent
4 Great Portland Street
London W1W 8PA

or
LEAVESDEN STUDIOS
PO Box 3000
Leavesden, Herts, WD25 7LT

Any other addresses being used by fans (and there are many!!) means that the mail takes a much longer time to collect, respond to and many, I fear, may be lost in transit as they are not under our direct control.

What each person receives is as follows - Dan's latest pre-signed photo and a newsletter/message from Dan telling his fans what he has been up to/ watching/ listening to etc. These messages are composed entirely by Dan - not by his agent or anyone associated with Dan - and copies are then made and distributed. We have so far sent out three different newsletters and the fourth due to be distributed from Nov 1, will take the form of answers to the FAQ's he receives in his fanmail. He tries to change this every three months. Unfortunately, what Daniel cannot do is personally sign photos or reply to individual letters, hence the use of the newsletter as an effective means of communication. As you can tell, from the sheer volume of mail he receives, this would be an impossible task for him to fulfill with his filming schedule and academic commitments.
