Yikes. With thanks to the UK Christmas TV Twitter feed (see below), we learn this morning that the first of this year’s Christmas specials is already in the proverbial can, a good eight months and change before the big day. The QI festive special has already been filmed.
Apparently, the episode will feature Sandi Toskvig and Alan Davies, as usual, and they’ll be joined by guests Cariad Lloyd, Josh Widdecombe and Noel Fielding. As you might expect, no further information is forthcoming. It’s interesting, though, that we don’t even know for instance if there will be a Doctor Who Christmas special this year, and not a frame of footage has been shot if there is. But QI? They’ve been doing their work early.
Er, we’ll update you with a transmission date when we get it. We’re guessing December.
