Many, many years ago whilst working at BBC TV Centre Fry and Laurie got into the same lift as me. For some reason I just found them hilarious and cracked up. They were just talking shooting schedules or similar but they just sounded/looked like their characters doing a sketch. Anyway they took the lunatic stood beside them in good humour.

Went downhill after series 2, which was by far the strongest IMO.

Couldn't agree more (well I could, but I'm too lazy). The second series was consistently fabulous, third a relative disappointment, and I didn't bother with the fourth.
Stephen Fry is awesome but unbearably twee and clever little me in the Hitch Hiker's Guide movie.
