You know how Martin Freeman generally comes across as extremely disinterested whenever he's being interviewed? You know, like he'd prefer to be ANYWHERE else, because he finds the whole experience a bore and borderline demeaning? OK, that's just an assumption on my part based entirely on his demeanour during past interviews with the likes of Graham Norton and so on.

As it turns out, Freeman would've been a lot more enthused had past hosts introduced an oversized antler helmet, a jovial house band, limitless fake snow, safety goggles, and Jimmy Fallon flinging a load of brightly coloured rings in his face. Who knew!
