A wide variety of fluff and mutterings from the brain of a polymath.
have you seen seen Alan Davies in Jonathan Creek? I'd forgotten how much I liked watching him until you posted this. I found most of the episodes on youtube -
I have, actually. I'm a mystery buff, and someone recommended them to me. I thought they were quite good, the cases generally clever -- and, having a not-inconsiderate amount of knowledge on how stage magic works myself, generally accurate. They play about as fairly with the camera angles as real magicians do, which does actually give you a fighting chance at guessing what went on about the same time Jonathan does.
