QI E11 Recording Review

*This is episode E09 in the Autumn transmission order.

Right, once again QI Fanatic couldn't make it tonight so it's down to me to write about the penultimate recording for QI Series E...of course QI Fanatic himself is going to review tomorrow's final recording...that's what I'm led to believe anyway!

Stephen Grant was on top form this evening once again...he had quite a bit more to do this evening as well...more of that later.

Now for the more juicy parts although you will have to highlight them in order to read them as I don't want to be accused of giving anything away to anyone who doesn't want to know.

Tonight's Children in Need Special was all about 'Entertainment'. The 4 panel members were Bill Bailey, Jo Brand, Jeremy Clarkson and Pudsey Bear...however Pudsey did spot the Elephant in the Room - Alan Davies! All will become perfectly clear when this episode is aired on 16 November!

Some of the subjects mentioned tonight (once again in no particular order and whether or not they will be included!!) were small people, several moons, jesters, rhinos, QVC (!), websites, olympics and fish...

There was no mention of the vodcast tonight and for once there were no pick-ups to be done.

After the recording tonight the audience were given the opportunity to stay in their seats and watch the first ever public screening of the new show from the 'Peep Show' writers and creators called 'Ladies and Gentlemen'. It was described as being a 'bit like Friends' but set in 1865 in olde London town!

The incentive to stay and watch wasn't just to be amongst the first people to see this new show but also to have the chance to win several superb QI goodies in a raffle which was held after the screening...including QI books, DVDs, £100 cash, signed QI cards and....wait for it...a lifetime pass to every recording of QI! Unfortunately I didn't win anything...there's always next time...well if there is a next time! :-)

Thanks go to QI Fanatic for giving me the opportunity of writing on his's hoping this won't be my last time!

Bye for now!

Yes, thank you for the excellent reviews Andrew. A quick note, however, that my review will not be available until Sunday since I'll not be home on Saturday.

I'm sure there will be some juicy stuff for you to read though so don't forget to come back.
