8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown review

A champagne-fuelled joy.

Alice Jones, i Newspaper, 13th July 2018

TV: 8 Out Of Ten Cats Does Countdown All-Female Edition

Never mind coming a long way since women got the vote, we've come a long way since a few years ago when women were seen as token females on quiz shows and TV decided that a woman should be on every panel.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 12th July 2018
