A Must See Quiz Show
15 December 2002 | by Big Movie FanSee all my reviews

I must have watched almost every episode of Catchphrase from 1986-1999 when the charismatic comedian Roy Walker presented it. It was a fantastic show with a fantastic host.

There would be two contestants in front of a big screen. On the screen, there would be animated pictures and the guests would have to guess the phrase. "Say what you see," were Roy Walker's words as the contestants played for money and a chance in the final. The prizes were very good as well.

Roy Walker left the show in 1999 and he was replaced a year later by Nick Weir and then Mark Curry, neither of which were as charismatic as him. Roy Walker is a genuinely nice bloke and very funny so it was hard to see him go so I wouldn't recommend the post-Roy Walker years.
