Screencaps from Mr Selfridge (episode 1) and Hyde Park on Hudson
Sam discussed Uncle Vanya, Mr Selfridge and Hyde Park on Hudson with Bernie Keith (interview starts at 1 hour 11 minutes) and Andy Potter (interview starts at 2 hours 15 minutes) last week. Both shows are available on iPlayer until tomorrow afternoon (GMT).
whatsontv.co.uk has a gallery of stills from Mr Selfridge.
He has been elected the new chair of the National Campaign for the Arts (The Stage).
In late December, Sam wrote about his "5 Things I can't live without" for the Daily Express. His piece was "subbed beyond recognition" (his Twitter, @exitthelemming).
