It's a lovely kids show that Roger Allam does the narration for. But of merit in and of itself.

This is from Jeanne Morse: "Hey guys ! I'm pretty sure we're quite a lot here to love Shaun Evans' work !! As Benedict Cumberbatch has his Cumbercollective, Hugh Dancy has his Dancies, I was wondering how Shaun's fans are called !Any ideas ? xx with love from France." Any ideas anyone? I know that the Endeavour fandom members are called "Mateys". Roger Allam fans are called "Allamites." But does anyone have a cool name for Shaun fans? I'll ask around. Meanwhile, all ideas are welcome! Evanses? Shaunies? LOL

I love his voice. When I read the book Neverwhere, I was mentally hearing Roger Allam as the Marquis.
Neverwhere is a personal favourite. Though I believe Roger Allam should've been cast as the Marquis of Carabbas.

Yesterday Roger Allam narrated wonderful revival of "Oh! What a Lovely War". Available on
Also in cinemas: ‘The Book Thief’ (Brian Percival; USA/Germany) *** I saw this towards the end of last year when I was in New York and while it really isn’t anything particularly wonderful, I seem to remember leaving the cinema fairly entertained. Director Percival has worked on 'Downton Abbey' and this is a comfortable, Sunday evening viewing, film equivalent. It has some novelty though: you don’t often get second World War films about the German civilians living through the conflict, so that’s a bit different; but the most striking aspect is that it’s narrated by Death himself (Roger Allam, excellent), whose dulcet tones give the story a sense of dignity it might not deserve. Sophie Nélisse is very good in the lead and Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson are their usual reliable selves as her foster parents. The main problem here is an uncertainty of tone. As the main character is an adolescent girl, it might have resonated with a teen audience were they not too busy watching and re-watching vam ...

I read the first book of "A Song of Ice and Fire" and didn't like it. Don't take me wrong, it's fairly well written. The very problem is - while I have a very soft spot for villainy, for intrigue, for a game of thrones well played - there is nobody to like. There's no character I'd care for, with the exception of Eddard Stark, who had "Doom" written on his forehead right at the beginning of the novel. He's not a player, though, but a honorable man, and therefore lost. What have we got amongst those left? Sadistic madmen. Mad women driven by grief and hate. Opportunistic traitors galore. Boring idealists. People I don't care to love, and people I don't love to hate. Just people I don't care for. Having now seen the first season of HBO's GAME OF THRONES changed little, if anything, about my impression from the book, although I enjoyed seeing familiar faces (sometimes just in cameos) like Sir John Standing (lying down), Roger Allam, Julian Glover, Charles Dance, and Peter Vaughan. Having said this, there ar ...

Watching a recorded Endeavour and thinking what a wonderful speaking voice his boss, Fred Thursday, has. Googled him and found out he was the original Javert in Les Mis, opposite Colm Wilkinson - chap called Roger Allam.

Had an marathon today. Eps after the pilot were much better, Roger Allam is sublime, really. Excellent detective drama!
Is there anything Roger Allam isn't it?
When is the new Endeavour? That serial is easier for me. Shaun Evans reminds me of Shane which is comforting and it has Roger Allam.
Really weird hearing Roger Allam stutter, used to him being smooth and sarky as Douglas.
Why can't I find a clip of Roger Allam doing that clip from Copenhagen at National Theatre's 50 years... I'm desperate to see it again...
John Finnemore uses Cumberbatch more interestingly in his relationship with Roger Allam in radio’s “Cabin Pressure”.
Why did waste FANTASTIC actor Roger Allam as Illyrio Mopatis in the first few episodes?
Roger Allam is just amazing, as is Shaun obvs. the scene on the roof will always get me.
II loved that :) Benny C is great and Roger Allam is little short of an acting God :)
I bet you read that in Roger Allam's voice didn't you?? LOL
And oh my *ing God is Endeavor a good series. Well done Shaun Evans & Roger Allam.
This makes sense. Roger Allam is pretty great.
Do you know how many otters Benedict managed to imagine in an airplane? Well him, John Finnemore, and Roger Allam
New post: Thanks to the Globe's DVD series (and to my uncle's Christmas generosity) I've finally been able to admire the 2010 production of Henry IV, dominated by Roger Allam's brilliant Falstaff. In typical Globe style it's full of humour and bawdy comedy and makes a fascinating counterpoint to the Hollow Crown's more serious version. Very highly recommended - and if you managed to see this live, please allow me to tell you how utterly jealous I am of you.
Just seen Roger Allam (spotted by Shame I haven't got my lemon with me.
New post: Delighted by the DVD of the Globe's excellent 2010 Henry IV - featuring a sublime Falstaff from Roger Allam.
Roger Allam is here, must resist asking about Cabin Pressure...
Roger Allam is my favourite actor right now. Just found out he used to do a comedy radio show with Benedict Cumberbatch.
Does anyone know if Roger Allam is in a show this year? I can't find anything.
Served Roger Allam tonight was chatting for 5 minutes over movies why did all I want to say is "As always England prevails". but didn't.
Also if you were wondering, the awesome Douglas Richardson is Roger Allam, who plays Illyrio Mopatis in GoT
Watching Game of Thrones for the first time and a surprise Roger Allam appears!
Also, just realised that one of the actors was Roger Allam who played Prospero in 'The Tempest', which I saw this summer. Nice.
There's a TV travel ad with Roger Allam's voice asking "Spain or Turkey? SPAIN OR TURKEY?" Were those the MJN Xmas in-flight meal options?
And Roger Allam and Stephen Fry! Easily best comic book adaptation ever. And I don't like comics turned movies.

Just got a bit overexcited hearing Roger Allam's dulcet tones on an advert. He could sell me anything.
Am hoping to get the brilliant British actor Roger Allam to play Hitchens. He's a dead ringer, no pun intended.
Sounds like it could be Roger Allam
Am I a bad Cumberbabe if I'm a little sad Roger Allam lost the Best Actor award to Benedict, both having been nominated for their work in Parade's End? I love Ben, but I also like Roger. I mean, a lot. (and OMGZ it's Captain Martin Crieff and First Officer Douglas Richardson. I swear. Whenever I watch Parade's End I can't help but giggle whenever these two open their mouths because when I forget the age difference I ship Martin/Douglas to no end. And also Papa Cumberbatch aka Timothy Carlton was in it.)
Roger Allam IS a detective in something (actually he's been one three times)
I want to say Cabin Pressure because Benedict Cumberbatch is Sherlock and because Roger Allam should be a detective in something
Roger Allam as a camp, moustached RAF officer in Foyle's War! Yes!

Thumbs up for Vignoles with a review via the website - and yet another call for a TV series. (if only it was a case of me 'deciding I would like the books on TV!) 'Only discovered your books by chance earlier his year. Just enjoying The Torn Curtain. They are all terrific - can't put them down. They would be great TV. As good as Morse or Lewis. Have you not approached TV yet? You really should. Roger Allam should be ideal for Vignoles. Looking forward to New Brighton Rock. Spent many happy holidays there in the '50's.'
I'm putting this up for a vote. What Roger Allam show/play/movie would you all like me to feature on the page? Just leave a letter in comments and the show with the most votes will be featured from Tuesday to Friday this week!! a. Henry IV - Falstaff b. Endeavour - Fred Thursday c. The Creatives - Charlie Baxter d. The Thick of It - Peter Mannion e. Make a suggestion!

Ah, Roger Allam, Jamie Parker, William Shakespeare, tartiflette, bottle of Barbera. A cracking evening in good company at the end of a tiring couple of weeks, but... If all the year were playing holidays, then sport would be as tedious as the work ;)
"The Book Thief" A nice film about the good germans in the not so nice Nazi Germany era. Stellar performances, IMO, by Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, Sophie Nélisse, Nico Liersch and, again IMVHO, by Roger Allam. Ms. Watson and Mr. Rush are superb as a, seemingly, at odds couple with, on occasion, no dialogue necessary :) Ms. Nelisse and Mr. Liersch are similar in their roles. A great film and I was surprised at the humour in it ……. at least, I hope I wasn't the only one who found it funny.

28 years ago, just about to the day, I saw the original London production of Les Miserables. This evening I had the pleasure of going back with my daughter, Elizabeth Press. While I have seen many long-running musicals, they often get tired, with second string casts. Not this. While Colm Wilkinson, Roger Allam, and Patti Lupone will never be equaled, the current cast was extraordinary, particularly James Gant, the understudy playing Javaert. And Daniel Koek, though with not quite the vocal power as Wilkinson, but maybe more subtlety, brought the audience to tears with Bring Him Home. Wow! If you are in London and haven't seen it, see it now!

Amongst the wonders of the National Theatre 50th Anniversary programme I have to say that the most spell-binding excerpt for me was Roger Allam in Copenhagen.

Simon Russell Beale, Roger Allam and Judi Dench - masterclass in being absolutely magnetic alone on empty stage.
The programme was marvellous tonight. Included scenes from wide range of productions from Ayckbourn to Shakespeare. Highlights were Judi Dench singing Send In The Clowns, Roger Allam reciting a speech from Copenhagen + Sit Down You're Rocking The Boat from Guys And Dolls. Disappointed there wasn't any Pinter though. Surely a Harold Pinter play must have been performed at The National at some point?
Oh Roger Allam... Also lucky to see him at the Globe in Tempest. LOVE.

Oh, Roger Allam, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
Apart from a very dodgy tv series in the US Roger Allam has been one of my favourite character actors for over a decade.
But watching Roger Allam doing that dance is very rewarding
After watching Roger Allam play Falstaff on Sky Arts last night l wouldn't put any agent near that role.
