About Nickolas Grace

Nickolas Grace was born in 1947 in Merseyside, England and trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama.

His career has spanned the stage, film and television. His stage appearances include roles with the Royal Shakespeare Company and he is a stalwart of London’s West End. His many film roles include Two Deaths, Tom & Viv, and Salome's Last Dance.

But it is chiefly for his representation of the evilly lascivious aristocrat in his many television appearances that Nickolas Grace is most famed – in particular his portrayal of Anthony Blanche in the BBC’s Brideshead Revisited and the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin of Sherwood, on which he prides himself on being the only Sheriff of Nottingham on film, stage or television ever to have killed Robin Hood.

He is also an experienced stage director.

Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) Audiobook

Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) Audiobook
Written by Jerome K Jerome
Read by Nickolas Grace

Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog), read as an unabridged audio book by star performer Nickolas Grace,  was intended to be a serious travel guide. It failed dismally in this respect, but succeeded in becoming an hilarious account of a boating holiday on the Thames, between Kingston and Oxford.

The three men were based on the author and two of his friends. The holiday was a typical boating holiday of its time carried out on what was known as a Thames Camping Skiff. The dog, Montmorency, however, was entirely fictional, but, as Jerome remarked, *had much of me in it.*

The book was denounced as “vulgar” by the literary establishment, but it was hugely popular amongst what were known as the clerking classes who yearned to be “free from that fretful haste, that vehement striving that is every day becoming more and more the bane of nineteenth century life”. It has coined one of the great quotes about the pressures of the modern working life – “I like work. It fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.”
