Lowdown

Will the real Jim Marshall please stand up? For years, everyone thought they knew him as the Chelsea-supporting media bloke. Now we are to believe he's something of a renaissance man who paints a bit, reads modernist novels and dresses like a rural parson and he has become a fixture on industry platforms over the past few years.

Most expensive purchase

My divorce.

Why are you good at what you do?

If I am, it's because I still enjoy it.
