BEST OF THE REST

Manchester Evening News - - TODAY’S TV -

THE GRA­HAM NOR­TON SHOW BBC1, 10.40pm

ONE of the big­gest (lit­er­ally and metaphor­i­cally) stars in Hol­ly­wood joins Gra­ham on his sofa tonight, in the gi­gan­tic guise of Dwayne ‘the Rock’ John­son. The mighty man moun­tain is joined by his comic co­hort and teeny co-star Kevin Hart, to dis­cuss their new se­quel movie Ju­manji: The Next Level.

And hope­fully af­ter they’ve talked about that, Gra­ham will be able to con­vince Dwayne to run for pres­i­dent at some point in the fu­ture.

Re­turn­ing to the sofa to talk about the im­mi­nent re­turn of Doc­tor Who is Jodie Whit­taker. Also join­ing them is na­tional trea­sure and for­mer Monty Python star Michael Palin, whose lat­est travel book is all about the jour­neys through North Ko­rea.

THE BBC PRIME MIN­IS­TE­RIAL DE­BATE BBC1, 8.30pm

THIS time next week it’ll all be over and we will/should fi­nally/hope­fully know who’s go­ing to at­tempt to nav­i­gate our coun­try through the next few years.

So, have you de­cided who you’re go­ing to vote for yet? Who knows how much in­flu­ence and ef­fect these TV de­bates ac­tu­ally have. It seems to be a bit of an Amer­i­can­ised thing that we al­ways man­aged fine with­out in years gone by, but here we are.

It can at least give peo­ple a bit of fun on Twit­ter. Once again Boris John­son and Jeremy Cor­byn will go head to head in a lead­er­ship de­bate – prob­a­bly the last time they’ll meet be­fore polling day – chaired by Nick Robinson.

Face to face for a fi­nal TV de­bate

Or is it the lit­tle and large show?
