Guest host Xeni Jardin interviews television writers whose work hold strong ties to their childhood.
Robert Popper's first thing on TV was Look Around You, a bizaare callback to educational videos from the 70s and 80s. Now, he's created and written a sitcom-like series about the tendency to go back to your parents' house and suddenly start acting like you're 13 again. It's called Friday Night Dinner.
Plus, we look back to a conversation with television writer Steven Moffat. He grew up adoring the British staple Doctor Who. These days, he's the writer and executive producer of the Doctor Who revival. He's also joined by the show's two new stars.
