Personal Quote:

[in 2011] I'm incredibly proud of Life on Mars (2006) and Doctor Who (2005). They're just a blast to do. Why not? You do the serious stuff, the classical stuff, the populist stuff and sci-fi stuff. You're an actor, try everything. See more »

Trivia:

Supports Manchester United Football Club and sometimes has a reference to this inserted into the characters he plays (particularly Sam Tyler in Life on Mars (2006) and Cal McCaffrey in State of Play (2003)). See more »
