Episode 2: Peril

Summary

Sandi Toksvig hosts an extended edition of the comedy panel game, in which the questions are so difficult points are awarded for interesting - but not necessarily correct - answers. Joining regular panellist Alan Davies are guests Aisling Bea, Lee Mack and Jason Manford

Review

As warned by host Sandi Toksvig in her opening remarks, QI fans watch this week’s episode “at their peril”.

No, the series hasn’t finally lost its way after more than 15 years onscreen – it’s as full of fascinating trivia, hilarious tangents and off-the-wall guests as ever – it’s just that this week’s entry is entirely themed around mortal danger, with Alan Davies and guests Lee Mack, Aisling Bea and Jason Manford dicing with death as they answer questions on reverse parachute testers, pyromaniac hairdressers and “moderate torture”.

With that said, there is one subtle change this year. Did you spot the revamped opening theme tune and titles?
