Episode 10: Would I Lie to You? At Christmas

Summary

Rob Brydon introduces a seasonal special of the comedy panel game. Guests Miranda Hart, Stephen Mangan, Barry Cryer and Miles Jupp join team captains David Mitchell and Lee Mack to hoodwink their opponents with a few festive fibs or facts about themselves.

Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

“This is my cape,” proclaims David Mitchell – words we’ve always wanted to hear him say. “I used to put it on to pretend I was Doctor Who and head into my Tardis, or as my parents called it, the airing cupboard.”

Ahh, it’s all too believeable, the kind of absurd but just-plausible-enough claim this series loves to tease us with. Equally tricky: does Miranda Hart begin every Christmas Day with a cigar in bed? Did Stephen Mangan name his puppy after a gravestone?

As usual, the panellists’ festive fibs are great excuses for repartee, cross-examination and stories with more embroidery than a Downton dressing gown. But it’s beautifully, stupidly funny, not least because everybody looks like they’re having such a blast, so we do too.
