Here's the link [In reply to] Can't Post


It says Martin Freeman is going to be in the Jan 7th episode. Are you looking at something else, shadowdog? Let us know so we can be sure our information is correct. So far, it seems to be.

That link shows all 4 guests on, so it should be a riot on the set, it usually is.

Yes [In reply to] Can't Post

The way I saw it, Gerard Butler was the main guest on the show and Martin was asked a few questions, but nothing new on the Hobbit.
He was there to promote Sherlock.

A part of the show is up on youtube. Hope it's okay to share it here.


There is always hope
