The Complete QI A To D
Relentlessly intelligent, gloriously uninhibited and occasionally controversial, QI has engaged the brains of discerning quiz fans for over a decade, garnering no fewer than ten prestigious TV awards and multiple BAFTA nominations. Hosted by Stephen Fry and co-starring stalwart player/resident whipping boy Alan Davies, these shows feature Bill Bailey, Rich Hall, Jeremy Hardy, John Sessions, Clive Anderson, Jo Brand, Rob Brydon, Danny Baker, Jimmy Carr, Linda Smith, Phill Jupitus, Dara O Briain and many others joining the ranks of cleverclogs and dunderheads sparring with the famously erudite quizmaster.
Each show contains questions of such brain-boggling difficulty or baffling obscurity that a correct answer is a near-impossibility; instead, points are deducted for answers that are both obvious and wrong, and awarded for incorrect answers which are, nevertheless, Quite Interesting!
From Atoms and Biscuits to Cockneys and Divination, this nine-disc set offers an unmissable meander though the complete Series "A" to "D".
Alan Davies says: "I can't remember what happened but I have a great sense of injustice."
Stephen Fry says: "In a world that sometimes feels like a great grey expanse of flavourless porridge, the delightful conversations we had on QI are a highly welcome miniature jam-and-honey gift set. Thomas Edison reported that we don't know one millionth of one percent about anything. This is true of all of us - none more so than Alan."

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
