It was fabulous playing so many of the characters from Sky’s TV Box Sets; it’s not every day you get to audition to be Daenerys Targaryen, mother of Dragons.Sky’s On Demand is brilliant and incredibly simple to use, offering hundreds of hours of programmes from the last seven days from Sky, the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and many more, all at no extra cost. But on top of this it’s a passport to the wonderful world of Box Sets, I am hooked already. – Joanna Lumley
