    I can't believe this forum isn't live and kicking.

    Did anyone see the new series start last Wednesday, with Jeremy Paxman.

    He's an old softie after all!

    I came in here to discuss the David Tennant episode, and was shocked to see not only is there was next to nothing in the forum, but the new series isn't listed!

    What a shame, it's a fascinating show (though I tend to watch only the people who I think will be interesting).

    So far I've seen:

    David Baddiel
    Stephen Fry
    Julian Clary
    David Tennant (though alas only the last 15 minutes, which was in Derry, my hometown).

    I will be looking out for the repeat.

    I think this show is very good.

    I've been watching this series since it began. I thought last night's 'episode' with Natasha Kaplinsky was superb. She has never really appealed to me, but I thought the way she handled some very difficult revelations about her family was superb. If I was a member of her family, I'd be really proud of what they had done in the face of adversity. Really moving.

    I loved Alistair McGowan's show ... I laughed at the last revelation

    My favourite will always be Bill Oddie who I think was the first ever episode. Heartbreaking.

    Other favourites:

    Stephen Fry
    Moira Stuart
    Paxman
    David Tennant

    Least fave:

    Rory Bremner - could he have been less interested in his female relatives. His great grandmother was also in the intelligence service but he totally dismissed her. What a t*sser.

    I'm not sure about Natasha K. Why did she have to travel to South Africa to find out about her Dad when her Dad is alive and well and living in the UK. Why not just ask HIM about his life, why travel to the other side of the world to talk to his friends.
