Series concept and production info

QI, or Quite Interesting, is a classic British comedy panel game quiz television show with an impressive history that began with its BBC Four premiere on September 11, 2003. Since then it has been moved around various BBC channels, and is currently broadcast on BBC Two. It`s created by John Lloyd, and the questions are researched by the QI Elves, a team of seven people. QI is presented by Stephen Fry, although this is the last series for Fry, as he`s decided to move on and is replaced by his old friend, actor, writer and comic Sandi Toksvig for series N, which contains sixteen episodes and premiered on October 21, 2016.

The concept of QI is original and easily distinguished from practically any other quiz show in the history of television – the questions posed to the panel of four people (one resident, Alan Davies, and three rotating ones) are so obscure that they are basically unanswerable. Thus the focus of the show shifts towards the genial tangential discussions spun off by the questions, rather than the actual answers. The joy of the witty conversation that the panelists engage in, hilarious questions, the scoring system that is self-confessedly beyond understandable, the sparkling presentation by Stephen Fry – all of these are so brilliant that QI has won many awards and enjoyed universal international acclaim.

The current series` premiere episode featured Phill Jupitus, Romesh Ranganathan and Cariad Lloyd as the guests. Series N will be rounded off by two highlights specials. How did the viewers take to the departure of beloved Stephen Fry and his replacement by Sandi Toksvig? Is she able to maintain the naturally delightful atmosphere that is QI`s trademark? It seems to be doing reasonably well, premiering to 2.3 million viewers, and declining to 1.55 million viewers in week two. The critics and the viewers seem to agree that the show`s in good hands with Toksvig, so there`s great hope for its future. The issue of the show`s renewal for the next series (series O) is not even on the table – it seems only natural that QI will come out in 2017, an elegant staple of BBC Two`s schedule. Stay tuned, and we will inform you when an official announcement is made by BBC officials.
