This week, Tim is injured in a suspected drug/people smuggling incident with his (second) briefcase.

Unusually we have a long section dedicated to Netflix Trending - this week, Beyond The Curve - a documentary about people that believe the Earth is flat. Yes, really. There's some more talk about telly, and the show ends with a thrilling (hilarious) tale of mobile phones on aeroplanes.
