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.
whilst They're doing a crossover they should have roger allam in to make it a three-way.
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!
The first performance of Les Mis EVER! Colm Wilkinson and Roger Allam!
Roger Allam > Russell Crowe (thats the mathematical symbol for 'greater than' not an arrow)
I don't care. I just had a chat with Roger Allam.
Seriously, wouldn't a Jonson movie be great? Murder! Neck verse! Inviting friends to dinner! Roger Allam as Jonson. Call me, Hollywood.
One of the great defenses of the drink from the larger than life Falstaff of Henry IV.
Well I figure since that was all I really asked for apart from some Roger Allam play programs, I should get the whole thing. :)
I've been mainlining so much Cabin Pressure at work that my interior monologue sounds like Roger Allam. This is in no way a complaint.
and there's this cosy dowager who looks remarkably like screen favourite Roger Allam.
The guy on the rights actor's name is Roger Allam
Magister Illyrio. Roger Allam. He was in Aladdin. I knew it!
so jealous. He was amazing as lady Olivia. Henry IV parts 1 & 2 on Monday. Roger Allam as Falstaff
"We want Tim Curry, but 10 pounds heavier and 3% more evil." ~Hollywood, right before casting Roger Allam in things.
Sarah and Duck is my new favourite tv show. It even has Roger Allam narrating!
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.

Oooh, that Roger Allam's a good actor!
Roger Allam is the best thing about Endeavour. Awesome character name too, Fred Thursday.
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!
Philip Quast and Roger Allam are between them the epitome of Javert-ness.
is narrated by the great Roger Allam
Fab vid about Endeavour. No Shaun interview but Roger Allam and both talking about it. May be UK only
Picked up The Book Thief again and now reading it with Roger Allam's voice in my head.
Roger Allam's performance in Homeland 50 was simply superb.
This might be the biggest compliment I have ever received! Roger Allam is an absolute HERO of mine!
I can't watch Roger Allam perform without thinking of
Roger Allam was OUTSTANDING in The Tempest. I had the chance to see the final show when I was in London :)
Also for the awards how about Roger Allam for best actor for The Tempest?
If only I could listen Roger Allam reading me fairy tales before sleep... dat voice.
I just found out that Roger Allam narrates The Book Thief film!!! Brilliant!! I am super excited! I cannot wait to see this film. The book is in my top 5 favorite books ever. Such a wonderful and moving story. I recommend that everyone reads it
Roger Allam doing a speech from Copenhagen is an upcoming treat.
I love Cabin Pressure. I think Douglas/Roger Allam might be my favourite though.
I could listen to Roger Allam all night
Angels in America and Roger Allam in Copenhagen were personal favourites, but the whole performance was spectacular!
Can we also talk about Roger Allam in the middle one? He looks adorable.
Oh I know. I knew what Judi was doing and I knew she'd kill me. Also Roger Allam doing the same, he's special to me too.
Came across an excellent audition tape on iplayer. I'd suggest casting Roger Allam and Penelope Wilton.
Sorry for my "Eh?!" in defence of Roger Allam at the National Theatre thing last night. Got proper luvvie-ish when I saw that.
Roger Allam proving once again why he is a God!
Watched Henry IV Part I last night then had a Roger Allam sex dream! Don't knock it til you try it.
Roger Allam I still have a slight crush on you.
I miss Roger Allam as Heisenberg in the gallery. He was brilliant!
Still waiting for Dr. Jekyll playbill to come in the mail, so have some Roger Allam as Heisenberg to fill the time:
Roger Allam as Heisenberg in NT's 50th - SPECTACULAR!
Highlight on BBC was the astounding Roger Allam in Copenhagen.
Catching up with Up to Roger Allam and Copenhagen both being brilliant.
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. Besides the piercing and powerful delivery, the hand movements from the moment the cigarettes were offered to the moment they were accepted were completely hypnotic.
Roger Allam!! (I haven't, but we watched that scene last night)
Literally just screamed ROGER ALLAM! I'm okay guys.

I'll continue V for Vendetta (aka that perfect movie where Stephen Fry and Roger Allam act together) at 8:30~
missed cos of 'Colder'. Iplayering asap But anticipating roger allam, angels in america and alan bennett's hector as highlights
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.
Roger Allam going round taking bets on the result.
It's the 'simple'' solos that will linger. Roger Allam Fiona Shaw & Simon Russell Beale
Watching Roger Allam a brilliant actor who now makes think of Sarah and Duck
So far, particularly loved the section from Arcadia and Roger Allam's pitch perfect monologue from Copenhagen
Good old bit of Roger Allam. (have you guessed my iPlayer connection means I watching it on a lag.)

which play was that,with Roger Allam? only had audio for a minute there?
Roger Allam. Such a great actor. Not as famous as he should be.
Simon Russell Beale is saying it all wrong. But Roger Allam can only get it right.
Hey mate, lovely meeting you today. I'd really encourage you to read God Of Carnage. I saw it with Richard E Grant + Roger Allam.
A relatively good choice I think. :)
Just heard that Roger Allam is the voice of Death in The Book Thief. I can officially be excited to see it now. Relief is washing over me in an awesome way.

*waits patiently* Truly enjoyed seeing him and Roger Allam at the Globe. Perfection.
That moment when you think of starting a Roger Allam fan club, you search the internets and find it already exists.
it was good fun! Even more adoring of Roger Allam now. Good level of silly, though still prefer Jon's stand up I think.
The show has Benedict, Roger Allam and Andrew Scott all taking part
I also run 2 Roger Allam boards on pinterest. I'm kcanevari. Check me out!

For all my fellow Roger Allam fans, he will be voicing "Death" in the movie The Book Thief! A MUST-SEE in the theater. His deep, bassy voice will be killer in surround sound. XD
Roger Allam's "Stars" is just wow. And Colm Wilkinson is obviously amazing.
Some days, it's just a Cabin Pressure kind of day. thank you, BBC Radio and John Finnemore for great comedy with Roger Allam and Benedict Cumberbatch.
The Book Thief's unique narrator will be voiced by Roger Allam, alongside stars Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson.
I'm sitting across from Roger Allam on train home. Nostrils ahoy!
Did you go watch the Tempest with Colin Morgan and Roger Allam in it? It was awesome.

Roger Allam is great in it, but he’s always great. Shaun Evans is super; I like him the more I watch.
Saw.Colin Morgan and Roger Allam in The Tempest at The Globe Theatre today. Its was amazing! The actors blew me away..
Photo: tweedisgood: Roger Allam as Prospero, Colin Morgan as Ariel, The Tempest. Just stood for three hours...

Can't get over how much younger Roger Allam looks here compared to
Watching "Endeavour" on PBS. My esteem for Roger Allam knows no bounds. Also:
I love to try and figure out if Roger Allam wears a rug.
AUDIO Endeavour series interviews with Shaun Evans and Roger Allam. Cracking opening to series tonight itv

Too much awesome in one room!!! All we need is Roger Allam to show up and have them sing in harmony.
Hurray, Roger Allam as Falstaff- never thought of that casting but how perfect (on SkyArts but apparently filmed at Globe -2010)
I could listen to Roger Allam singing all day.
Just learned that the actor who played Peter Mannion in The Thick of It, Roger Allam, also created the role Javert in the West End. In awe.
watching The Politician's Husband and I just can't get used to hearing Roger Allam's voice with out the sarcasm and witty retorts
Rewatching some of the later episodes with Roger Allam as a Tory MP. He's brilliant.

Love Benedict Cumberbatch (SHERLOCK) & Roger Allam (ENDEAVOUR)! These are on my AmazonUK wish list. :-)
Currently watching Roger Allam playing a barrister in The Jury. :D
Find myself imagining Prospero's lines spoken by Roger Allam... Not long now and will actually hear it.

Why did I watch Endeavour the first time? Roger Allam. (I've continued because it's really good.)
I'm probably in love with Shaun Evans. I'm definitely in love with Roger Allam:-)
I only hear Douglas Richardson when I hear Roger Allam now. I expect him to steal the whiskey on Burling Day.
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.
It might be quite welcome. I'll see if Roger Allam is around to conjure one.
Watching Henry IV with Roger Allam.. Can hardly stop laughing, and nor can the crowd! Can't wait to see him in The Tempest.
I most definitely did not hear Roger Allam when I read Prospero's part.

The Internet is making a good case for Roger Allam. Internet = Tumblr = Roger Allam tag. I'm sold. Sell me all the things he's in.
You should all be watching Endeavour on now. Shaun Evans as the young Morse is good, bt I'm loving Roger Allam as his mentor

There's absolutely nothing on telly tonight so I'm watching something with Roger Allam on
Re-watching Ashes to Ashes and Roger Allam pops up :')
Loving Roger Allam in I was never a Morse fan but I loved Inspector Lewis. Endeavour fits nicely in with both.

The tempest w/ roger allam ends 3 days before as well
Nice relaxed day yesterday but I had a tad of a hypoglycemic episode during church and had to pull myself together to serve communion. Larry treated me to a yummy brunch at Out of the Pan - I came home and zonked out almost immediately. Made supper, enjoyed Masterpiece's new series BUT I got up at 2:45 AM with gut pains, cramping.had to irrigate...long and uncomfortable process during which I puked. Went back to bed at 4:30 AM.slept more comfortably but had to take out the garbage and recycling and compost stuff.in the rain. It's so true. I've got to focus on the positive and take pleasures when I can get them.
Finally watching the first episode. Roger Allam and the great Anton Lesser, top cast.
It's boring up in the flight deck, brilliant scene from Cabin Pressure with Roger Allam & Ben Cumberbatch
Roger Allam is on telly! Dad doesn't quite understand my enthusiasm. He's stuck watching something that does not interest him.

Fallen head over heels for BBC Radio 4's comedy Cabin Pressure. Benedict Cumberbatch, Stefanie Cole, Roger Allam and Jon Finnemore from The Now Show. What's not to like?!!!
Good! :-) It's a corker. You don't get much better than Anton Lesser & Roger Allam on screen together too!
Roger Allam, original Javert and Philip Quast, the best Javert ever, are playing Albin and Georges in La Cage in London. I can't tell you how much I'd pay to see that.
I got the hoover out, decided it was too hot and sat back down again to V for Vendetta. Has Roger Allam ever played a nice character?
Roger Allam should play the title role of a movie about Hitch.
Dear Philip Quast, there is a reason you are my favourite Javert.

Watching V for Vendetta. I'd forgotten that the wonderful Roger Allam and the gorgeous Rupert Graves are in it!

Just saw The Tempest in the Globe. It was really good and funny. It had Roger Allam, Colin Morgan and Jessie Buckley. Who were all amazing!!
Roger Allam played Prospero in true Peter Mannion fashion at : absolutely no tie.
I would still go for Ben Daniels or Roger Allam, please take note Moffatt!!
Excitement of tge day - The Tempest at the Globe with Roger Allam. One of the best productions I've ever seen.

Sweet Mozart's Requiem played on repeat, all of "Inspector Morse" is on hulu. The formative tv/film crushes are as follows: Columbo (Peter Falk), Fox in The Little Prince (Gene Wilder), Jim Rockford in Rockford Files (James Garner), and then there was a substantial gap filled by punk rock, art, novels, films, music, philosophy and theater but no one character or actor in particular until John Thaw broke my heart as Inspector Morse.
Just back and buzzing full of Roger Allam. Great afternoon at the Globe with Lynne and The Tempest. What joy being in such a great theatre, and what amazing performances. I'm in love. xx
Sadly didn't meet Colin Morgan as he went out a different exit. Met most of the rest of the cast though even Games Of Thrones actor Roger Allam. :)
BBC Radio for kids! Join Sarah and Duck's adventures on CBeebies Radio. Preschool learning has never been so much fun. Children's radio online! Narrated by Roger Allam.
T - seconds till Roger Allam and *sque* Colin Morgan walk in! Or fly in. I hear his outfit is snazzy
"His performance is flecked with humour yet also with pathos." Roger Allam as Prospero, reviewed by
It is indeed The Globe. Here for The Tempest; very tempted to offer Roger Allam a Twix as he exeunts.
On my way to see the amazing Roger Allam & Sam Cox in The Tempest
WHAT MAKES A GREAT ACTOR??? . Roger Allam. 1. Learn your lines so well that you never have to worry about...
Benedict Cumberbatch, Roger Allam&Anthony Head in the same episode and this voice battle of Douglas and Herc! :O
The way Roger Allam sings Stars is just perfection. Can't beat the originals...
Reading fanfiction before maths. My fanfiction head-voice sounds like Roger Allam. Uhhh.
Watched the "Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone" the 2003 remake of the 1961 classic. This one stars Helen Mirren. Dame Helen is fantastic of course and Anne Bancroft is also awesome, but Roger Allam, famous for originating the role of inspector Javert in the west end production of les mis is dreadful. He is playing a hammy, southern, *** actor and he seems to be trying too hard to channel Nathan Lane. Makes me wish nathan lane had been available!
*squeals* when I saw The Tempest at the Globe, I stood at the front and could have touched Colin Morgan and Roger Allam..
Oh and another round of One day more. Talk about value for money. watch that extra 30 minutes. ROGER ALLAM *** IT
Jamie Parker and Roger Allam showing how it's done. One of my favourite Shakespeare scenes ever ever ever -
tbh I haven't seen any adaptation of Les Mis I just love Roger Allam sjdjdndbfd
Rafa lost his first round in wimbledon me really upset of tat i expected he would won dis year all gone;-);-)
If they are going for a older actor for the new Doctor I would like Roger Allam or Simon Russell Beale, although Ben Daniels remains my fav
I like the animation style, it's brilliant. And Roger Allam is perfect as the narrator. Awesome casting.
Roger Allam is in V For Vendetta, I'm so pleased!
What is your biggest pet peeve about flying ?
:D God,I hope they won't take a look at my Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock or Roger Allam -folder! :D Could be very embarrassing
I love Down The Line, it's the only funny thing they have I reckon. That and the Roger Allam one about planes (sometimes).
Coming up on Radio 4 Extra is an adaptation of Middlemarch with Roger Allam. .
other (famous) people she has worked with on stage. Roger Allam (Les Mis) is there as is Jonathan Pryce. Pryce gets called up first. Then me
Thank you, Moondance is a superior earworm to That's Amore with 's modified lyrics, albeit sung by Roger Allam.
Watched "The Queen" tonight. Upon recognizing Roger Allam, I sat up straighter and cooed "Hello ..." at the television. *facepalm*
Along with the Broadway legend that is Patti Lupone, I also happened to be sat in the same room as Jonathan Pryce (Original Engineer in Miss Saigon, Peron in the Evita film etc), Roger Allam (Original Javert in Les Mis), VICTOR FLIPPING GARBER (Original John Wilkes Booth in Assassins, Mr Andrews in Titanic etc) and Graham Norton (This needs no explanation).
West End Live was fantastic, and Seth Rudetsky is one of the wittiest, knowledgeable, hilarious, theatrical human beings on this Earth and I'm so glad we caught his show, but I've been up since 5:30 am and I need trrhZzZz.
What an amahhzing evening. 5 hours of Broadway songs, gossip ad deconstruction. Patti and Seth fab. In the audience Vincent Garber, Graham Norton, Roger Allam and Jonathan Pryce, who sang. Head is buzzing with Broadway. High kick and jazz hands.
Amazing seats too... 3rd row, bang centre. I was sat closer than Roger Allam, Jonathan Pryce (who sang!) and Graham Norton!
Shakespeare's Globe Theatre: Falstaff (Roger Allam) and Hal (Jamie Parker) in Henry IV -- more please.
Another amazing performance from Patti Lupone! She dragged Jonathan Pryce up & he sang Fly me to the moon! He said but I paid for my ticket!!! ;)
Amazing also to be seats away from Roger Allam, not to mention the surprise performance from Jonathan Pryce!
Roger Allam sitting just behind me for Patti!
If it's good enuf for Roger Allam, it's good enuf for me !
Seen Prospero as magician,vengeful politician,evil wizard--Roger Allam's take (apropos on Father's Day) is Dad wanting best for daughter
Colin Morgan's (he of Merlin fame) Ariel is a show stopper and Roger Allam's has a new take on Prospero-it's one of toughest parts in canon
The tones of Roger Allam are very soothing at toddler o'clock, even if "Sarah & Duck" is as mad as a box of frogs.
