We caught up with Peter to find out what he likes to watch to relax between filming…

Favourite TV show to cheer you up:

Friends. I’ve seen every episode and know them all word for word, but it never gets old and still cracks me up.”

Favourite TV show to watch before going to sleep:

“I wouldn’t say I have a favourite, but I love watching crime dramas before hitting the sack – CSI, NCIS: Los Angeles, The Mentalist and, most recently, Luthur.”

TV show that reminds you of being your childhood:

“This is a hard one! The only one I can think of has to be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Me and my wee bro loved them and I’m pretty sure we had all the videos too!”

Axed TV show that you most wish would return:

“I’m sure Friends wasn’t axed, but it’s definitely the stand-out show that I would love to see return.”

TV show that you find most addictive:

Luthur – I only heard about it a few weeks ago, so I bought Series 1 and 2 on DVD. I think it only took me three sittings to watch all 10 episodes and I’ll definitely be watching them again.”
