Phil returns to talk Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread, featuring Daniel Day-Lewis’ potential last film role, and also gives his opinion on Alexander Payne’s Downsizing. What We’ve Been Watching makes a smashing comeback with Nancy Myers’ The Intern and Michael Keaton in The Founder, while Phil diverts Laurie & the listeners with his own personal ‘Film Academy’ (it will make sense when you hear it… probably).

Has Netflix scored a hit with sports doping documentary Icarus? Phil tells all, while Laurie catches up with Judi Dench and Ali Fazal in historical drama Victoria & Abdul and Dylan O’Brien and Michael Keaton in ‘espionage thriller’ American Assassin. Pixar’s Ratatouille also joins the pack for WWBW, with Phil and Laurie on opposite sides for the first time in a while!

Spider-man returns in his third incarnation as Tom Holland in Sony & Marvel’s hopeful new partnership – Phil tells us how it looks.

WWBW features Disney classic Bedknobs and Broomsticks with Angela Lansbury, and Bailey family classic Galaxy Quest with Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver & Alan Rickman. Last but not least, we fit another brief Picture Perfect in there, with a scene from Harrison Ford & Tommy Lee Jones in The Fugitive.
