A Cambridge graduate and a personal friend of Creator/JKRowling (he won a Talkie for his reading of the Literature/HarryPotter unabridged audio-books), he has appeared as [[GenerationXerox several Melchettes]] in ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'', played Jeeves in ''Series/JeevesAndWooster'', portrayed OscarWilde in ''{{Film/Wilde}}'', and starred as Fry in ''Series/ABitOfFryAndLaurie''. His reading of the Literature/HarryPotter audiobooks is a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for his acting abilities. Not only is his voice acting superb, the sheer breadth and convincingness of the accents he puts on for the various characters is stunning. Excellent accents are a particular quality of his.

He also played Mycroft Holmes (Sherlock's older, cleverer, but [[GentlemanSnarker indolent]] brother) in Guy Ritchie's ''[[Film/SherlockHolmes Sherlock Holmes]]'' sequel.
