Running Time: 4 x 30 min

An adaptation of George and Weedon Grossmith’s comic masterpiece by Andrew Davies.

Since its publication in the pages of Punch, The Diary of a Nobody has never been out of print. What started out as a witty weekly series commenting on late Victorian manners has become an undisputed classic of comic literature.

The Diary of a Nobody is a series of monologues delivered straight to camera, in which the anachronism and immediacy of the modern medium is used to exploit the timeless nature of the material.


Starring - Hugh Bonneville.

Written by - Andrew Davies.

Directed by - Susanna White.

Produced by - Murray Ferguson.

A Clerkenwell Films production for BBC4.


Lovingly observed adaptation of George and Weedon Grossmith’s satire on suburbia – which captures the delusional Pooter in all his foolish, insufferable glory. Beautifully played by Hugh Bonneville.
