Did you know an estimated 1 in 10 Europeans is conceived in an IKEA bed?The QI Elves, The Radio Times, 23rd June 2016

It's the beginning of the end, the first episode of Stephen Fry's final season as host of QI - and after 13 years and 180 or so shows, the letter M is as good a place as any to pull the plug. It's M for medicine this week, and it doesn't take long for the teams - Alan Davies and Lucy Porter to Fry's right, Matt Lucas and Ross Noble to his left - to start sniggering at all those bodily references. You might argue it's vaguely educational - I mean, who knew there was such a treasure trove of smut to be found in a teddy bear? - but the real joy of QI lies in the way its panellists can find a double entendre (sometimes a single one) lurking around the most earnest corner.Karl Quinn, The Sydney Morning Herald, 20th April 2016
Where would we have been without Fry's QI? The quirky quiz has been correcting our misconceptions for 13 years and over 180 episodes. How else would we have known that Darwin ate owls, the moon smells of gunpowder, Cinderella's slippers were made of squirrel fur and that Henry VIII had two wives (or four if you're Catholic)?
QI has been a pedant's paradise and has probably been the cause of more pub fights on 'quiz night' than any of the beer served. It will continue with Sandi Toksvig in the chair, but only time will tell whether the chemistry of Fry and Alan Davies will be replicated. My guess is Davies will give it a go to the end of the series and then bow out himself. Only time - and ratings - will tell.James Waller-Davies, Horncastle News, 26th February 2016
The QI Elves' live recording of hit podcast, No Such Thing as a Fish, hurled a shedload of facts in our direction in an entertaining hybrid of impish humour, conversational charm and enough snippets of trivia to wow even the most experienced pub quizzer, writes Jasmine Henderson-Pennington.Jasmine Henderson-Pennington, Leicester Mercury, 22nd February 2016
Bye-Bye Stephen...Ian Wolf, On The Box, 21st February 2016
After 13 years, 184 episodes and enough clever clogs asides to fill a decent-sized library wing, television's favourite erudite uncle has surrendered the lectern. It was Stephen Fry's farewell show as QI quizmaster.Ed Power, The Telegraph, 20th February 2016
