Mysteries Solved:

Bleak Expectations (2007, August) Tom read for several roles in the pilot.

The non-broadcast pilot was actually March 2006... then it was a whole year before the first series. Anthony Head wasn't actually in that pilot - Tom Hollander played Mr Sourquill and Mr Gently Benevolent. Again, it was entirely an availability thing for him not doing the series; again we luckily got the fantastic Mr Head. I think both he and Mr Hollander are superb actors.(Updatde from info found January 2010) Source: http://www.the-medium-is-not-enough.com/radio/

Raj Quartet:  According to one BBC site... As we go to press, they have just finished recording the RAJ QUARTET for Radio 4 starring Geraldine James, Tom Hollander, Phyllida Law and Benedict Cumberbatch which will be transmitted in Spring 2005.” Source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/soundstart/rdc.shtml
After having personally listened to this 9 part radio play I can attest that Tom was not in it.

• Midsummernight’s Dream (November 15 and 15,1984 at Abingdon’s Amey Hall).
Source: Randall, Mac. Exit Music: The Radiohead Story. Omnibus Press, 2004, p. 21. Tom was a classmate of Radiohead member Thom Yorke’s while at Abingdon. The book cites Tom’s review of Yorke’s music (for the play). It it, he notes, “[i]t can’t be very gratifying for the people involved in such a production when so few members of the school community can be bothered to go and see their work.” To have noticed such a thing, was he in the same production?
