Description Hide Description- Show Description+

A country manor mystery that's actually a deliciously wicked comedy of manners, ''The Hippopotamus'' is a rollicking adaptation of the best-selling novel by gay icon Stephen Fry.

Lapsed poet, disgraced drama critic, redundant husband and hard-working drunk, Ted Wallace (Roger Allam) has been fired from his newspaper job, and leaps at the chance to drown his sorrows at his old friend's country estate, Swafford Hall. A series of spiritual healings have recently put the household in a tizzy. The purported miracle worker is his hosts' teenage son, Ted's godson, David (Tommy Knight). Lord and Lady Logan are set on sharing their boy's "gift" with the world, blissfully unaware that his "laying on of hands" trick involves, well, an emphasis on "laying." At odds with a colorful party of fellow guests only too ready to swallow anything they're told, Ted sets out to prove the miracles are a hoax and save the young man from a lifetime of embarrassment.

With an excellent supporting cast that includes Tim McInnerny, Emily Berrington, Fiona Shaw, Matthew Modine, and gay actor Russell Tovey, director John Jencks realises a decade-long ambition to become the first person to bring one of Fry's novels to the screen.
