[Advent Calendar 2013] QI XL - "Ice"
One of the infamous QI Christmas episodes -- in this case, from Series I, featuring notable personality BRIAN BLESSED, who has done everything from critically-acclaimed Shakespeare to the famously pulpy Flash Gordon movie. Also worth having a look at is the year David Tennant was on the panel, where both a joke and it's boomerang-brick punchline had everyone laughing too hard to breathe. Or the year with Daniel Radcliffe, who spent the entire show looking quite terrified and like he might accidentally end one of his answers by squeaking out, '...Mr Fry, sir,' but then goes on to nail not one but two of the obscure historical questions that the panelists aren't actually supposed to be able to answer. Stephen Fry is most impressed by him -- charmingly, they're friends now.
