When I last flew on Virgin, a B742 from LGW to BOS, the interior looked pretty worn out. The PTVs were nice, but that was about it. I know that they've been re-doing their upper class, but does anyone know if they've done anything in the last year or so to refurbish their economy sections?

Yes they have. I also flew LGW-BOS. I did the route in Feb 00 and I got a very old -200 G-VGIN out looked very tired and the aircraft was not in very good shape.
On the return BOS-LGW I was lucky enough to (at the time) be the first -200 in new colours. G-VIBE. It was a remerkable change to the old -200. The seats where new and smart. The PTV's where bigger and more reliable. And overall a much nicer and newer looking planes.

VS have great interiors, in July 2000, I flew on G-VHOL, an A340 in new colours and it had odyssey entertainment, was very nice inside. In March 2001, I flew G-VTOP a 747-400 in new colours with odyssey, again very nice, and 5 days later, I flew G-VIBE, a 747-200 in new colours and the interior was GREAT with odyssey, nice and clean, although VTOP's Upper Class bar was nicer than on VIBE.
