Alexander Armstrong's Big Ask

Series 2 - Episode 1

Review by:

The panel show that’s like a postprandial version of QI returns with Stephen Mangan, Jo Brand and Tim Vine doing the job of quiz-show researchers and coming up with the questions themselves. This time, Dave Lamb’s role as fact-checker has been done away with, leaving Alexander Armstrong in sole charge. Everything else remains the same. There are laughs to be had, especially when the guests stray from the topic at hand – a discussion about Mangan’s role in Postman Pat: the Movie being particularly rewarding.

About this programme
