Season Four of the show is better than ever. Eli is back on the campaign trail with Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) running for Governor of Illinois, still as manipulative and unwavering as ever, but this year facing some pretty stiff opposition in the shape of an FBI investigation into his personal activities concerning campaign financing as well as some pretty devious opponents.
The line-up of guest stars on Season four has been amazing: Kristing Chenowith, Christina Ricci, Nathan Lane, Brian Denehy, Stockard Channing, Maura Tireney, Matthew Perry, TR Knight, Audra Macdonald, Miriam Shor, Amanda Peet, Hamish Linklater as well as returning favourites like Carrie Preston made it truly exciting to get each epsiode's script.
I played all the parts in the National Theatre of Scotland's production of Macbeth.
The show also starred Myra McFadyen and Ali Craig and was directed by John Tiffany and Andy Goldberg. We opened at the Tramway in Glasgow and then played the Lincoln Center Festival in New York City.
See these videos to hear me talking about this incredible challenge and utterly overwhelming experience.
I hosted a series of travel documentaries for Sky Atlantic, where I walked around various cities in the UK and Ireland, finding out their urban secrets.
Each show took the form of a walk, during which I would come across a motley collection of celebrities, locals and experts who showed me hidden gems in London (2 shows), Brighton, Bristol, Liverpool, Newcastle, Dublin and Glasgow
I did quite a few cabaret concerts in March. I went to Kansas City to peform at the gala for the opening of Like Me Lighthouse, a new LGBT center. Then I did a concert at the Alice Tully Hall for the Lincoln Center, another at XL Lounge which was a benefit for the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) and several appearances at galas including the Public Theatre's at Joe's Pub and the Lunchbox Fund.
At all of these I was accopmpanied in all senses of the word by Lance Horne
Once more I returned into the breach as host of Masterpiece Mystery, coming out of the shadows to set the scene for the PBS mystery fare.
In my seemingly endless quest to be a voice in every children's animated TV show, I recorded an episode of Arthur in Boston, when I was there doing my Masterpiece Mystery duties. I played a poodle. I know, I need to break out of the typecasting box.
Austen Clarke, the billionaire entrepeneur who captured Fiona's imagination and her heart, returns!
I went to LA to shoot some more scenes for this hilarious web and TV show with the brilliant Lisa Kudrow. Much hilarity ensued I can tell you
I played the Rabbit in a special Alice in Wonderland themed episode of Dora the Explorer, alongisde Mel Brooks and Jewel. We did it!!
I hosted the Britannia awards, BAFTA LA's annual ceremony honouring the best of British, and those who love them.
