I may be one of the show's biggest fans, but I have to admit that the fact that QI does seem to use the same guests over and over is frustrating.
In this current series, Jimmy Carr has appeared three times, Sandi Toksvig has appeared three times, David Mitchell has appeared three times (one of which has yet to be aired), Bill Bailey has appeared three times (again, one has yet to be aired)... and so on. As much as I like them, there needs to be more variety. I'd like to see a series where each guest is only allowed to appear once just to see if there is an improvement.
Love QI, great format that works & a great host too but I think it does suffer from repetition a bit which I'm sure the scheduling & guest availability must play a part in that. (although I'd be more than happy for David Mitchell to appear on it every week!) Having said that, they have had some decent 'new' people this series. Frank Skinner, John Bishop, Brian Cox & the German comic Henning Wehn (spelling??) come to mind.
Back to the point of the thread... I think QI has done pretty well again this year to keep up with the high standard that it's set itself over the last 10 yrs.
