Thirty-Eighth Choice

As the latest run at the Leicester Square Theatre comes to an end Richard is impressed with Adrian Chiles' bathroom choices. His guest is comedian and actor Alan Davies.

They chat about avocado bidets, being called a S****bubble by Liam Gallagher, setting off Neil Kinnock's burglar alarm, spending a huge amount of money on a chair you might see in an estate agents, how he managed to get the Jonathan Creek gig in spite of intense competition and why he nearly left QI. They also discuss Alan's heart-breaking but brilliantly written memoir about the loss of his mother and the abuse he suffered at the hands of his father as a child.
