British writer, actor and comedian Paul Merton will take the lead in a session at the EICC, open to the public with a complimentary ticket, on Knowing the Score: A Masterclass in TV Music, lifting the lid on why you care so much about Sherlock on the rooftop, or why you get all hot and bothered when Poldark takes his shirt off.
