Behind the scenes, he's a CoolOldGuy car enthusiast and has been known to take part in auto-racing. In ''Series/TopGear'' he was once the second fastest "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car"[[note]]and has wrapped at least two ''seriously'' unreasonably priced cars around trees while about his lawful occasions on the Queen's thoroughfare, fortunately without serious harm to himself[[/note]]. He also has a degree in electrical engineering.

Added DiffLines:

* FunnyCharacterBoringActor: [[invoked]] During one interview he even lamented how much he was currently proving how much trouble he has being funny without material prepared.


Added DiffLines:

* OldShame: [[invoked]] Has nothing nice to say about the first season of ''Series/{{Blackadder}}''.
* PlayingAgainstType: [[invoked]] Mostly known for his rubber-faced comedic roles, he went completely 'straight' to play an entirely dramatic character in ''Series/{{Maigret}}'' and what little humor there is is entirely deadpan.


Added DiffLines:

* WrittenByCastMember: [[invoked]] Co-wrote the first season of ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'' and ''Series/MrBean''.
