These include everything from the rather vague “hodge podge” to the bane of modern society, health and safety. Other episodes centre on happiness, hoaxes, holidays and humans. Guests include QI regulars Jimmy Carr, Jo Brand, Sean Lock and David Mitchell with the less-frequent Danny Baker and Sandi Toksvig. Alan Davies retains his place as the butt of Fry’s wicked wit.
