    Press

    It's a new series of the topical panel show - series 58, in fact - and Martin Clunes is in the host's chair, his 16th appearance in total. That's it for the old and familiar; the "new" will be whatever makes the headlines this week, and in these eventful times there should surely be no shortage of conversation.
