- You know he came on a visit here last year? Just turned up unannounced, on his way to Auckland.
- What? No.
- I’m sure your predecessor’s breakdown would have happened anyway.

'These days, he's known as the writer and creator of the BBC TV series Death in Paradise.
But after leaving Cambridge University, former Rutland schoolboy Robert Thorogood set up a theatre group with his friends from the student Footlights comedy troupe and took a production of Molière’s The Miser on a tour of private schools.
Which is how he came to be back at Uppingham in the mid-1990s.
And which is also how we ended up with a photo of a fresh-faced David Mitchell, Robert Webb and the estimable Olivia Colman in our archive, looking young, sparkly-eyed but slightly worse for wear, fame still ahead of them.’
- From the Leicester Mercury’s Picture of the Day feature
Look at the bow-tie, it’s important.
David Mitchell mentioned this tour during An Evening with David Mitchell a couple of years ago. He said that he always did the bow-tie up in a different way for each performance and that the other performers would have no idea how the tie would look before he appeared on stage. It became a running joke for the cast, who would attempt to stifle their laughs each time they saw the new-look tie. Regrettably, during one performance Olivia Colman laughed so much at the state of the bow that she lost control of her bladder and ended up urinating on stage. I feel privileged to have at last seen the tie that caused Ms Colman’s catastrophic act of micturation.
