Brian Pern: 45 Years Of Prog And Roll, Episode 3
The original Thotch line-up are forced to reform so they can pay a royalties bill.
Although Brian refuses at first, when he is informed that guitarist Pat Quid has dementia, he decides to throw in the towel to help out an old friend - but there are problems ahead when former band member and recluse Bennet St John reappears wanting a piece of the action.
Brian also runs into trouble with Martin Freeman, who has been assigned to read the audiobook of Brian's autobiography.
