The Diary of a Nobody - Preview & competition

Diary of a Nobody

Preview by Jack Foley

One of Britain’s finest acting talents, Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Paddington) takes on one of Victorian England’s most enduring comic creations The Diary of a Nobody.

Adapted by the peerless Andrew Davies (Pride and Prejudice, War and Peace), this witty four-part BBC adaptation of one of Britain’s most entertaining novels arrives on DVD, on-demand and download on June 12, 2017 courtesy of Second Sight.

Lowly Victorian bank clerk Charles Pooter has aspirations beyond his modest social status, recording every detail of his life with a dry wit and amusing snobbery.

Susanna White (Bleak House, Jane Eyre) directs this classic BBC period comedy as Pooter battles with impertinent tradesmen, exasperating friends and his wayward son Lupin’s many embarrassing misdemeanours.

Make this your most comical Father’s Day yet with an adaptation of the diary Evelyn Waugh called “the funniest book in the world”.
