Graciously accepting our repeated offers to come round for a cup of tea, Father Ted co-creator Graham Linehan (and the man behind The IT Crowd) popped in for a chat in front of some Empire Podcast microphones, and you can listen to the resulting interview below.

As well as some wise words from the man who came up with a character as bonkers as Father Jack, the Empire Podcast team review a pair of five star releases - namely Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master and Michael Haneke's Amour - as well as a million star one in the form of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. Why a million stars? Well, you'll have to listen to the podcast to find out...

Then there are more questions from your fair selves, as well as a discussion of the biggest pieces of movie news that have hit the web this week.

So for all that and plenty more besides, click play on the SoundCloud file below (or subscribe via iTunes or our RSS feed).
