In London we give ourselves a pat on the back, rightly, for not killing one another, for our prejudice being subtle rather than lethal.

Some suggestions for you :

You could say I'm a mod, but with a small 'm'; I don't wear a parka, but I do question what I wear and what I listen to, which is what it's all about.

I'm a big believer that life changes as much as you want it to.

I work in public.

I hadn't grown up with 'The Hobbit;' I hadn't grown up with 'Lord of The Rings,' anything like that.

There are lots of things that keep me awake at night, but work isn't one of them. I mean, no-one's going to die if someone doesn't like what I do. So I don't feel a great pressure.

I've tried not to treat Shakespeare as a marble giant.

My idea of a good night out is staying in.

'Sherlock' is one of the biggest things I will do, ever - we could never have predicted that level of insanity around the series.

Without sounding overly pompous about it, I don't really trust certainty in anything, actually. Especially as I get older. Except love. I'm certain of love, I guess.

I can live without endless television programmes and films just centered around computers. I can sort of live without that.

I've got a stag weekend coming up and I've said I'm not doing anything more than a few drinks. I won't have it. I'll go home and watch Antiques Roadshow.

I'm not posh or common, I'm in between.

Whenever someone says to my mum: 'How's your son doing?' she says: 'Which one?' If you're a parent, you're not going to go: 'Oh I'll concentrate on the famous one.'

Why does everyone have to pretend to be stupid and not know long words?
