Trivia

The BBC and Talkback issued an apology in January 2011 after the Japanese Embassy made a complaint over a question and answer about Tsutomu Yamaguchi, the only man officially recognized as a survivor of both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki A-bomb explosions, who was described on the show as "either the unluckiest or the luckiest [man in the world], depending on which way you look at it".

Goofs

The photograph of the piece of knitting with "I woolly love you" in Morse Code knitted into it is shown upside down. This is particularly noticeable because the O in you (dash dash dash) and the I (dot dot), are in the wrong places. See more »

Quotes

Stephen Fry: If you put 5 Species of Sponge in a Blender they will separate out and reform again afterwards.
Phill Jupitus: Like Terminator 2!
Stephen Fry: I tried it with Chihuahuas but it didn't work.

Brilliant - and VERY interesting
6 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

What word could sum up this programme? Wonderful? Fascinating? Hilarious? All of the above.

As the QI Master, Stephen Fry is as brilliant as ever, and his banter with regular panelist Alan Davies is fabulous - their contrasts just work so well. The things that they talk about are genuinely interesting, and all of our family love it. It appeals to all tastes and senses of humour, as the variety of guests makes the dynamics of the show slightly different each week - and it never falters.

I hope that they make 26 series of this - we've just seen series 'C' and I hope they see it all the way through to 'Z'. Marvellous!
