Diary Of A Nobody (BBC Comedy, Hugh Bonneville)

Published

on


In period comedy Diary Of A Nobody, broadcast as part of a series called The Edwardians – The Birth of Now, the wonderfully pompous diarist Mr Charles Pooter (Hugh Bonneville) – the Victor Meldrew of his day – guides his audience through the minutiae of middle-class manners.

Diary of a Nobody first appeared in Punch as a regular two-and-a-half column sketch in 1888, and George and Weedon Grossmith’s superb satire on the snobberies of suburbia was considered so successful that it was released as a novel in 1892. It is testament to its success that it has never been out of print since publication. A documentary about the lives and work of the Grossmiths, entitled The Real Mr Pooter, screened on Monday 23 April on BBC Four.

Cast: Hugh Bonneville (Charles Pooter)

Writer: Andrew Davies / Novel: George and Weedon Grossmith / Production Design: Andrew Purcell / Executive Producers: Bethan Jones, Julie Gardner
