Ali recently watched comedy-drama Big Boys on Channel 4 and found himself thinking "How can I get more people to watch Big Boys so I can talk to more people about Big Boys?" Yes, the name is a play on 'Big boys don't cry', so you're right to expect a show that tackles grief and depression, as well as coming out, finding yourself at uni, making frie…
 
Here we go, just under the wire, just in the nick of time, Ace and I catch up - face to face, let's not forget! - to talk about Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, aka Doctor Strange 2, as it starts to leave cinemas (just about).

On this interview special, Ali talks to most of the gang…
 
Darker-than-dark Amazon Prime Video superhero series The Boys returns for a third season - best use the American term, eh? - bringing with it more eye-popping violence and and eyebrow-raising humour.

After all these years, it feels like an absolute miracle to see Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen "teaming up" - so to speak - once again as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader, but that's just what's happening, and we're not sure Ali can fully wrap his head around it. In this first-of-its-kind double-header 'Becoming...' interview, the pair dig deep…
