    QI

    Post  George on Sat 27 Jan 2018, 23:16

    I watched the episode “Omnishambles” of QI XL on BBC Two tonight. This was the recording I went to The London Studios in Waterloo, Central London to see last May.


    It was the last show to be recorded – but not the last in the series to be shown; there are still three more episodes to come. The guests accompanying host Sandi Toksvig and regular Alan Davies were Stephen K. Amos, Cally Beaton and Josh Widdicombe. Josh had been on the show several times before but the other two were new – so not one but two debutants on the show, amazing.


    The best thing on this episode is undoubtedly something called the “Dutch reach”  – the name given to how people in the Netherlands and Belgium open their car doors, namely with the further hand. Such a manoeuvre forces the person opening the door to look out for any passing cyclist or pedestrian who may be in danger of being hit by the opening door. As cyclist myself, I have never been the victim of “dooring” – but I have almost been a witness to a dooring accident once. I was a volunteer at The Mill at that time – and I was probably sitting at the reception desk when I heard a commotion outside. A motorist had opened a car door without looking behind, and a cyclist had been hit. I would never want to be perpetrator or victim in any such incident.

    I love Aisling Bea – she is great on the show. And the week before it was the episode “Objects and Ornaments”; the guests were Cariad Lloyd, Sarah Millican and Alice Levine. Before watching that episode, I had never heard of her or seen Alice Levine before; watching it, I was simply struck by her stunning complexion, so fair and lovely!


    The actress Fiona Glascott also has beautiful fair skin. I have a truly soft spot for ladies with pale complexion.

    The Christmas edition “O Come All Ye Faithful”, which came before that, had Jason Manford, Romesh Ranganathan and Holly Walsh as guests. When Romesh was pressing his buzzer, releasing the strains of “O Tannenbaum”, he looked as if a ton of bricks had just fallen on him. Why did he choose to look so glum on the show? Even Sandi didn’t know.

    Between the Christmas episode and the one with Alice Levine, there was another: the episode “Origins and Openings”. According to the QI website, it was to have been shown on Friday 15 December 2017 (with the XL edition following the day after) but, for some reasons, it had to be rescheduled to Friday 5 January 2018.


    The guests on that show were Susan Calman, Rich Hall and Josh Widdicombe. Josh is okay, but I do not like the other two. O how I should love to see the fair Alice again …

    You’re right, there was no show in the week between the Christmas episode and the episode “Operations” (in which Bill Bailey, Rhod Gilbert and Katherine Ryan appeared as guests).

    Cariad Lloyd also has very beautiful milky-white arms – which she displayed to perfect advantage in the episode “Nature/Nurture” in the previous series.

    Jounalist Camilla Long also has fair complexion. She writes for The Times and The Sunday Times, and has appeared on “Have I Got News for You”.

    In the episode “Organisms” of QI, Cariad Lloyd admitted to being so allergic to cats that she had to develop a hatred of these animals to protect herself from them. She had her arms covered in this episode, sadly – it was Holly Walsh who was showing off her white arms.

    In the episode “Miscellany”, one of her first appearances on QI, Cariad Lloyd tried to talk about the clitoris but got mercilessly teased by the male members of the panel for mentioning the word. “She said it! She said it! She said it!” screamed Stephen Fry with glee.

    I remember Anneka Rice once saying on elsewhere that the female clitoris has no function other than sexual pleasure. I myself have a theory that male nipples have no function other than making men look attractive to the opposite sex.

    Sadly for me, her sleeves came down below her elbow in that episode.


    I have lately taken to binge-watching “8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown” on VK, with the result that I have become obsessed with the lovely white arms – and legs – of Rachel Riley.
