    Great actor – but everything about that horrible coat they dreamed up for him to wear in War & Peace sticks in my craw! (Though, miraculously, the jewelled neck badge they put with it is perfectly appropriate – the Order of St Anne.)

    I adore S.R. and his melancholy, monkish face. He needs to make more historicals; he’s always looked a bit out of time.
