So what is the film about? The synopsis reads: "Privilege Hides The Darkest Secrets. From the BAFTA-winning director of Under The Shadow and Wounds, Babak Anvari, comes an arresting London-set crime thriller, I Came By, channelling classic Hitchcockian suspense via contemporary themes of ‘Establishment’ privilege and corruption.

Ahead of the release of his new film, Hugh has been loving the promo tour for A New Era, and has regularly shared snaps of himself with fellow cast mates to celebrate the new Downton Abbey sequel. In one dapper snap, he wrote: "It was great launching the new #DowntonAbbey film in New York last night, the first premiere ever to be held at the Met."
