I've always liked Tom Hollander. I remember really noticing him in 'The Lost Prince' (in which he was brilliant as King George V). Loved him in Rev. and In The Loop too, among others.
Enjoying BBC2's Ambassadors, also the theme music. Tom Hollander is in it, and Mitchell & Webb :)— Jo Brodie (@JoBrodie) December 29, 2013
Last week I discovered that he's also a very good writer and has had a column in The Spectator for years. I'd completely failed to hear about this until he recently wrote about meeting Prince and the tweet below found its way into my timeline, piquing my curiosity. His back catalogue is funny, thoughtful and honest and I wondered what everyone else thought of his writing... so I had a look on Twitter and realised that liking Tom Hollander (as an actor or writer, or just people having met him) appears to be everyone's default position. Quite right.
I think this tweet's how I discovered that he'd written something.
Assuming this is real he's also rather good at whistling...@holland_tom @empiremagazine someone tweeted Tom Hollander's meeting Prince article and I read the whole thing thinking it was by you.— Pete Deveson (@PeteDeveson) May 2, 2016
...and he was absolutely incredible as Patrick Moore in 'Far Side of the Moore'. My amazed face looked a bit like this :-O on hearing his 'impersonation' of him (I'm not sure that's quite the right word) though. He's bonkersly talented.
I collected a bunch of tweets in this Storify and have embedded it below. There are quite a few tweets so wait for it to fully load (or just view it at Storify).
