Each week, Marcus finds he's volunteered to be in charge of a big old thing - a hospital, the railways, British Fashion, a prison - and each week he starts out by thinking "Well, it can't be that difficult, surely?" and ends up with "Oh - turns out it's utterly difficult and complicated. Who knew...?"
This week, Marcus has been given his own railway franchise to run. Please note, this programme may be running late; change at Tiverton Parkway for The Archers
