OK, third time lucky. There was something clearly awry when he was on The Late Late, and some-thing else was amiss when he was on The Graham Norton Show... will he be back to his sparky self on this Review Show special? If not, why in the name of Jaysis has he been put on this extensive junket for Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut? When he's not talking about Quartet, he's address his troubled relationship with his father and his hedonistic younger days. And with an im-minent role in the Hobbit, there are some unexpected views on Tolkien fans, and Billy gives Kirsty a rare insight into his acting techniques, which include flirting with Dame Judi Dench. Muzack fans; there's a repeat of Jools Holland: My Life in Music at 11.45pm.
