The black chair returns! Sally Magnusson inherited the hot seat when her dad retired as the host of the show. She will bring it to Melrose so that Clive Myrie, Magnus’ most recent successor, can grill four celebrities on their general knowledge and specialist subjects. Four writers will endure the terror of the black chair. Who will triumph? Helen McGinn, Chris Brookmyre, Jim Naughtie or Ellie Updale? Come and enjoy the torture!
