Playing a character completely different from the ones he’s known for in Downton Abbey and Paddington, Hugh Bonneville stars in I Came By as a cocky High Court judge named Sir Hector Blake.

But when he finds himself at Sir Hector’s house in London, he discovers a dark secret that threatens his life.
