Crazy Credits

The researchers who provide the questions and information for Stephen Fry are credited as "QI Elves" which is how they are referred to on the show. Occasionally they are also given other interesting titles like "Curator of Jack and Jill" These can be seen in the "Cast And Crew". See more »

Alternate Versions

Occasionally the arrangement of the opening/end credits music would be modified slightly to match the theme of that particular show. So, for instance, when the given topic was something like "All things french", an accordion would be heard prominently in the mix. But perhaps the most obvious case of modification would be in the "Holiday Special", where in addition to jingle-bells being added, the first two lines from the song by that same name were cleverly integrated into the music - thus adding three more notes to the second line of the main melody.

Brilliant - and VERY interesting
6 May 2006 | by limpermadSee 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!
