Review

I absolutely love the way Sandi Toksvig keeps the bantermeisters in check with a snappy put-down or politely withering glance. “Don’t click your fingers at me! Have I suddenly turned into a waiter with no English?” she rebukes an over-excited David Baddiel as he struggles to come up with an answer.

The panel are answering questions about nature – although there’s an alarming number of references to Star Wars (most of which confuse Toksvig utterly – “We’ve gone into a parallel universe!”), while Baddiel and Ross Noble spend most of the time playing a game of one-upmanship over their knowledge of Namibia. At least Toksvig gets some support from Cariad Lloyd, even though one exchange produces the revelation that Toksvig has never farted.

Summary

Comedian, novelist and presenter David Baddiel, comedian, actress and writer Cariad Lloyd and stand-up comedian and actor Ross Noble join regular panellist Alan Davies and recently installed host Sandi Toksvig to contemplate questions and facts on the theme `nature and nurture'. As usual, correctness and even intelligence go out of the window in this quiz, in which the questions are so difficult to crack that points are instead awarded for the answers its questionmaster finds most interesting.
