Richard Fortey

He knows a whole lot about a whole lot and is good at explaining it, he is erudite and he has a self-depreciating sense of humour that would keep him from sliding into Giles Brandreth territory. Anyone?

How about Matt Parker, the stand up mathematician?? He's funny, interesting and intelligent.

Excuse the massive thread necrophilia, but no less a person than Bradley Walsh has put forward a person who ought to appear on QI.

"You ought to go on QI", he said to Dr S K "Paul" Sinha. "Quite irritating", explained Sir Bradley, but does he make a decent suggestion all the same?

Dr Sinha is not currently practising medicine, because he's far too busy being a professional quizzer at the same time as being a professional stand-up comedian. He's appeared on various panel shows on TV and radio, both as a comedian and as a "straight" commentator (despite not being straight, before anyone else points it out).

Would he be worth seeing on QI, or would he just try to win?


While musing on the Chase/QI interface, am I right in thinking that Jenny "The Vixen" Ryan was at one time a member of the Elfhood?

Thread necrophilia is in the urban dictionary but I'm not sure necrophilia is quite the right word, for any occasion. Wouldn't reanimation be better?

Yes! I have to admit that my "personal" knowledge of him comes from his appearances on Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast* and The Comedian's Comedian Podcast but, yes, I think he'd be brilliant on QI.



*or, as all the cool kids are calling it...

He had a great entry on Museum of Curiosity with CB Fry's mantlepiece so I reckon he's had the perfect audition

I think that the usual term is 'thread necromancy' based on the mistaken belief that a necromancer is someone who raises corpses (this is 'not done' in polite society), rather than one who divines the future by consulting the dead (though why they should know the future is a mystery to me as they are surely from the past).

A fallacy promoted in the excellent "Johannes Cabal*" books by Johnathon L Howerd.

*A role that Rutger Hauer was surely born to play.

On other forums, you'd have a valid point. But here, where 100+ page multi-year threads are the most active, necrophilia is probably more apt.
