    Miriam’s fabulous – nothing is sacred to her, so the interaction between her and Barry Humphries should be interesting. Jackie’s hilarious as well .(don’t know that I agree that she’s always talking about Derryn Hinch, she’s got way more to talk about these days. He, however, obviously still loves her, he talks about her a lot).

    I fell rather sorry for David Marr, the odd man out.

    Wow, a reason to watch Q and A.

    I will watch this, but I will turn off if Jackie Weaver starts talking about Derryn Hinch. I don’t think I have ever seen her do an interview without talking about him.

    That, I will actually watch.
