Bye-Bye Stephen...Ian Wolf, On The Box, 21st February 2016
After rattling through half an alphabet's worth of "quite interesting" trivia, and finding endlessly inventive ways of calling Alan Davies an idiot, Stephen Fry finally steps down from his role of QI's avuncular headmaster tonight. But first there's a final light-hearted lecture to get through, on the subject of misconceptions. The panel of Chris Addison, Sue Perkins and Sara Cox isn't quite a classic by QI standards - where's Bill Bailey?! - but one final opportunity for some Fry-and-Davies back-and-forth should make up for that.Gwilym Mumford, The Guardian, 19th February 2016
Who would have thought that Aled Jones could ever have experienced anything more alarming than the moment his voice broke. But apparently he did and the story he tells tonight elicits gasps from the studio audience and makes his fellow guests (stand-up comedian Josh Widdicombe and DJ Sara Cox) squirm uncomfortably.
Among this week's pet hates nominated for Room 101 are slogan T-shirts, car lashes (yes, false eyelashes for your headlights), fish bones, dill and The Lord of the Rings. Despite Josh Widdicombe's efforts, the best jokes still come from Frank Skinner, who does a fabulous impression of a Tyrannosaurus Rex trying to eat its dinner from a plate, and a laughable attempt at crowd surfing.Jane Rackham, Radio Times, 21st February 2014
Eyelashes on car headlights, slogan T-shirts and dill are among the candidates for Room 101 offered up by tonight's guests: child singer turned broadcaster Aled Jones, DJ Sara Cox and comedian Josh Widdicombe. The award for most controversial nomination of the evening goes to Widdicombe, who wants to pitch The Lord Of The Rings into oblivion - on the strength of its implausibility.Carol Carter and Larushka Ivan-Zadeh, Metro, 21st February 2014
