Tom_In_Oz_: @bbcbeinghuman Could someone please let Toby know in his latest blog post it's "WHET" your appetite not "WET." With thanks, Tom in Oz
Tom_In_Oz_: @RussellTovey My choice of avatar for Russell would be something a little more sophisticated and striking like the one above! Not the ones below that he is trying out.
'I like anywhere in Soho. I go there nearly every night'
6 Jan 2012
Billericay in Essex. It's always in my heart.
I moved to Tufnell Park two years ago. I love it because I don't have to spend £70 on a taxi home every Friday night any more.
Matilda just before Christmas. I've since downloaded some of the songs to sing along to.
Get on a river boat, you see a completely new side of London.
Text my mum to say I've landed safely and I love her. I'm a bit of a mummy's boy.
I love Liberty for home stuff, clothes, toiletries and bits of art. Dover Street Market is cool, especially the Comme des Garçons bit. Fopp in Covent Garden is the dream; it has DVDs for about £2. I get my books from Koenig on Charing Cross Road and I go to Uniqlo for basics.
My local caff does the best meals, but I won't give you the name because it's my secret. I've been known to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner there on the same day. The food tastes like my nan's and she was an awesome cook.
Dennis Severs' house in Spitalfields, which is one of the original Georgian houses that has been preserved exactly as it would have been. The only problem is that once you'd arrived with your iPad, it'd all be ruined.
What's your earliest London memory?
Going to the Tower of London when I was about six and thinking, 'Wow, people had their heads cut off here.'
My ex scattered rose petals on my doorstep after a fight. He thought it was a romantic gesture but I found it annoying because I had to sweep them up.
'His ears may have never stopped growing, but neither did his talent.'
I like the streets off Covent Garden, such as Seven Dials and Neal Street.
Make everyone go commando. I'd love knowing that no one around me was wearing pants.
James Corden told me: 'Just be brilliant, it's as simple as that.'
That I'm flying around my junior school after a running start through the playground.
A bird of prey, so I could get to auditions quicker, although I probably wouldn't have an acting career.
Who's your hero?
Robin Williams is the reason I'm an actor.
Amy Winehouse's Lioness: Hidden Treasures. It's so sad to listen to.
What's your biggest extravagance?
Almond M&Ms, but I'm trying to cut back. You can't get them in this country, but I once tweeted that I like them and now I get sent supplies from all over the world.
Dear Tovey Blog readers, can I just let you know my German twin Tom Markstahler, was the first to send Almond M&Ms to Mr Tovey in mid-2010.
Now back to the rest of the article...
Which is your favourite club?
Anywhere in Soho. I go out there nearly every night.
What are your favourite London discoveries?
There's a grate in the middle of Charing Cross Road at the end of Old Compton Street, if you look down it you see another street, with a road sign that says 'Little Compton Street'. How is there a street under the road?
I'm obsessed with Ralph Lauren polo shirts.
What are you up to at the moment?
I've just finished shooting Effie in London and Venice, and am now in rehearsals for Sex with a Stranger at the Trafalgar Studios.
I got pulled over for speeding along the Embankment by an officer on a bike. I tried to charm him with the fact that we shared a birthday, but he wasn't having it
Apparently if you go to the Natural History Museum and ask them to take you to the 'spirit' collection you can view all Charles Darwin's original specimens.
I've just got back from Tokyo where I went with a mate for New Year.
