It's Series One, Episode Four this week (we don't say Season...we're not American). We sat down on actual chairs in our favourite room at Hope Studios (still near the toilet door) and spoke to Andy Pilkington and John Tueart about leaving their professional positions and becoming actors, writers and directors. Both Andy and John worked in the legal profession and Steve also has a law degree (actually he has two, but he doesn't speak about it much) so there was a common frame of reference...

Episode Three. Steve has hit an age milestone. He doesn't want to talk about it. It's 50\. Don't let on you know. But this episode is not about that.

In this episode, Steve and Prue remember their fathers, who both fought in World War II, both as fathers and as ones who served. They also talk to Parissa Zamanpour whose play Somme Men has its premiere at the King's Arms in Salford this coming weekend. It is a story...
