I just watched the Shakespeare Uncovered documentary episode about A Midsummer Night's Dream.
He is a great guide, and his love of the play is very clear.

The actor for whom he understudied is quite a funny surprise, and I don't want to ruin it for you. But it is great to see these two actors together discuss a play that means so much to them.

Perhaps my favorite part of the documentary is when Mr. Bonneville visits Kenilworth Castle, 12 miles from Stratford.
