The conceit with which this Sue Perkins-hosted panel show hopes to distinguish itself from all the other panel shows is that every episode is dedicated to riffs on a designated name. Tonight: Alex. The ambition is clearly of landing somewhere between QI and Have I Got News For You - and it features people you have seen on either/both, or would expect to. Not disagreeable, but this edition would have been much improved by just letting guest Danny Baker tell some stories.
