1 | Peter Dinklage, the biggest star on TV
It’s our Game of Thrones special and who better to front it than Tyrion Lannister himself, Mr Peter Dinklage. Perhaps playing the best character in a show not short of competition, Dinklage talks to us about life, death and everything in between.
2 | Game of Thrones
Remember when your mate told you about this new TV show that had loads of wizards and dragons and swords in it and you thought, yeah, thanks, I’ve already seen Lord of The Rings?
