Episode Summary

J.K. Rowling, Bob Hoskins, Gok Wan, Paul Weller & Graham Coxon, The Arctic Monkeys.
Rarity is the common factor this week. A television appearance by the Arctic Monkeys, which is as rare as an Eskimo with a bikini and something that's as rare as hen's toothpaste - an interview with Harry Potter creator, J.K. Rowling. Also rare - possibly unique - is a London-born Norwegian sailor. Step forward, Bob Hoskins. The programme is scheduled to return in September 2007.moreless

  • This was a great finale to the season

    First to be interviewed was Bob Hoskins, I have never been familiar with his work before but the interview he gave was brilliant. He is a very funny person and his answers to Jonathan's questions were perfect and matched in with the show.

    Gok Wan was next - although I don't really like him, his interview was funny too. It wasn't as good as Bob Hoskins but it was good in its own right. The whole thing seemed to be a prelude to the interview with Jo Rowling. It seemed as though the whole show was waiting for the final interview.

    Paul Weller and Graham Coxon then performed and the song was good.

    The interview with JK Rowling was brilliant and, to me, it was one of the best interviews on the show. She rarely gives these kinds of interviews which is a shame because she was really good and was a great person to interview. It showed her personality and gave a fantastic insight into how she did the Harry Potter books. She is also very beautiful and Jonathan Ross commented on this himself.

    The Arctic Monkeys' performance wasn't as good as Paul Weller and Graham Coxon and the song wasn't as good either but it was still a good ending to the show.moreless
