In Little Dorrit, Russell Tovey was both poignant and funny as John Chivery, the young turnkey hopelessly in love with Amy Dorrit – the script included his musings from the book about exactly how the epitaph on his tomb should be worded when he has died of his unrequited love…

...Here lie the mortal remains of JOHN CHIVERY. Never anything worth mentioning, Who died of a broken heart, Requesting with his last breath that the word AMY be inscribed over his ashes, Which was accordingly directed to be done, By his afflicted father...

Press play to see Russell Tovey, Claire Foy and Ron Moody in this scene.
