The NHS. Whatever the hell is going on in the Middle East. The gathering storm of fortnightly bin collections? Who knows where it will all end? Watch the one man who will answer the call of destiny even though it's an unlisted number. Watch the one man who will call time on tyranny even though he isn't quite sure what it means.

For information, Susan is taller than a borrower but shorter than the average thirteen-year-old child. The show?

She also likes fine wine, kittens and walks along the beach. Seriously. It's going to be epic.
