Join Claudia as she rounds up the arts action from the last seven days. This week she enjoys a foray into the world of gothic Victorian romps, in the company of author Sarah Waters

Best-selling author Sarah Waters shot to fame with Tipping The Velvet and built on that success with Fingersmith. Will her latest book, The Little Stranger, continue to thrill?

VV Brown is a v. v. good singer and one of the BBC's hotly-tipped stars for this year. Judge for yourself when she performs live for Claudia in the studio.

There is also a lively chat with actress Lesley Joseph and a review of her career from sex-mad Dorien in Birds Of A Feather to her new theatrical role.
