At last...the dates for series G of QI!

As posted on the QI Forum and Twitter, the G series of QI will begin on Thursday 26th November at 9.30pm on BBC1. It will run for five weeks in that slot, the last of which will be on Christmas Eve and presumably be the Christmas Special.

After that, episode 6 airs on Friday 8th January at 8.30pm on BBC1. The remaining episodes will then air on Fridays for consecutive weeks. No information yet about which episode is the first, which order any of them are in, or the possibility of QI XL editions on BBC2. Not yet, anyway.

According to Alan Davies via Twitter...

...the new series 'G' of QI won't be starting until December. And when it does, it will be on BBC1, and on a Tuesday. No news yet on whether this will be the regular QI or the extended QI XL versions, as done for series 'F', or indeed whether QI XL will appear on BBC2 or at all.
