On the Pilot TV podcast this week we’re dancing with dragons as two of the stars of House Of The Dragon join us on the show ahead of the Game Of Thrones spin-off's Season 2 premiere. We sent along our very own Master of Whispers Boyd Hilton to sit down for a chat with Matt Smith and Fabien Frankel, aka Prince Daemon Targaryen and master swordsman (in every sense of the word) Ser Criston Cole [approx 24:55 - 38:32]. Together they talk the *great* episode they can't talk about, speculative spin-offs, and, er, Richard Madeley.

Elsewhere, in the reviews section, we take a look at WWII family drama We Were The Lucky Ones on Disney+, renew our gym membership with the second series of Peacock on BBC3, and head out into space with Lena Headey for the arrival of space lighthouse sci-fi series Beacon 23, whose two-episode premiere arrives on Paramount+ on 27 June. And as if that wasn't enough to be getting on with, alongside all the usual news and chat with James, Boyd, and Kay, Boydy — who somehow managed to squeeze in time to host the screening of the Inside No.9 finale last week (he may have mentioned it) — is on hand to talk us through his definitive list of the best nine episodes of the show.
