QI leads Christmas specials with a cool touch
ARE the Christmas specials starting early this year or is it our imagination? QI’s Christmas special or QI on Ice as host Stephen Fry (left) likes to call it, has guests Sean Lock, Ross Noble and Brian Blessed joining full-time panellist Alan Davis and games master Fry. Fry introduces the ‘‘Nobody Knows’’ bonus – if any panellist can identify the question that no one knows the answer to, they win a bonus. And then starts the special, by going on to ask ‘‘where in the world do they take the most days off work and have the most expensive Big Macs?’’ With subjects covering Iceland, huskies, eskimos and abominable snowmen, there is a decidedly cool feel to this festive special.
QI: Christmas Special: Wednesday, 8pm, ABC1.
