Benedict Cumberbatch And Sir Tim Rice Were Graham's Guests This Week20110212

The show got off to a great start with the delivery of a huge delicious cake. And Graham's special guests were actor Benedict Cumberbatch and the 1985 'Rock Brain of the Universe' Sir Tim Rice.

Maria helped Graham solve two more Grill Graham problems and Alistair joined us from Dubai. This week's 'I Can't Believe It's Not Better' song was truly awful, but all the blame can be laid at the feet of one Clare Gratix in Birmingham who chose Orville's 'I Wish I Could Fly' - amazingly it made the top ten in 1983! And Charlie Smith from Nottingham picked Harry Chapin's 1974 song, 'Cat's In The Cradle' for Tune With A Tale.
