Telegraph in super-tribute to Hugh Bonneville

What a super-tribute to actor Hugh Bonneville in the Daily Telegraph diary on Monday, under the headline: Hugh Bonneville's simple pleasures.

"Few, if any, users of the Twitter social networking website make a better advertisement for married life than Hugh Bonneville, the Downton Abbey star.

"The 47-year-old actor has lately regaled his 16,600 followers with his happy experiences at Chessington World of Adventures with his wife, Lulu, and nine-year-old son, Felix. It is the simple pleasures for Hugh: he talks, too, of his joy at "jogging through a bluebell wood... glorious."

"His tip for wholesome television viewing for Easter Monday? Just William on CBBC. 'It's superb family viewing,' he decrees. The star not merely of Downton, but also of films such as Scenes of a Sexual Nature and Conspiracy of Silence, Bonneville has undoubtedly come a long way since he started out at the National and the RSC in productions of The School for Scandal and 'Tis Pity She's a Whore'."

Thought this was a masterpiece of journalism. Good to know that Hugh thought the wood was glorious.

Looking forward to the next series of Downton, though I don't think I'd want to live in that era, when rich, privileged gents could have their wicked way with uneducated lower class younger women, who had no recourse to the law and no way to be heard. I'm very glad today's world is so different.
