Series info and format
A British comedy panel game television series, Duck Quacks Don`t Echo has been on the air since 2014. It`s written by Andrew Bird, Dominic English, Aiden Spackman, Neil Webster and Giles Boden, produced by Magnum Media and presented by Lee Mack. The fourth series premiered on April 3 on Sky1. The present series is set to contain 8 one-hour episodes.
Each episode of the program consists of three rounds – Fact Off, Fact Finder and Mack`s Fact. The celebrities on the panel present an amazing fact to their fellow panelists and go on to prove that it`s the truth – or not. The range of the subjects covered is very wide, from raindrops bouncing, figs containing dead wasps to bamboo being stronger than steel, but the presentation is what makes it highly entertaining, even if unsubstantial. Among the panelists featured in the early episodes of series 4 are Dara O`Brien, Davina McCall, Jessica Hynes, Sara Cox, Josh Widdicombe, Greg Wallace and Lorraine Kelly.
Viewership and renewal potential
The series has an IMDb score of 7.7/10 and has held a steady viewership under 200,000 throughout the course of its run. The first three episodes of the present series have averaged 160,000 viewers and a 0.7% share of the audience. Since similar viewership ratings have previously warranted renewal, it would be fairly safe to assume that the wacky humor of Duck Quacks Don`t Echo will be continued past the present series. However, no announcements have been made yet by the network, so please stay tuned for further developments.
