Fantastic! I'm holding out for the "E" Series in 2007 *touch wood*. I'll actually be in a position to be able to go to recordings!

Congratulations all!

What are youon about - 'touch wood'? Of course there'll be an 'E' series. Why would there not be?

Supposedly, if you say ''Nothing bad's happened yet'' then something bad will happen, unless you say ''touch wood'' and touch some wood, or your forehead straight afterwards. I learnt this of a farmer's child who also said ''I'm no racist to Chinks'', so I wouldn't take it too seriously.

Never mind about the "E" series. I'm just worrying how I'm going to be able to get my zimmer frame into recordings of the "Z" series.

And what happens after that? Start on numbers, maybe?

I think we start again with AA - aardvaarks, the Automobile Association, Alcoholics Anonymous, Aaron, etc, through to ZZ - zzing!, zzzz, etc. That gives us a total of 52 years, by which time it'll be someone else's problem.

Wouldn't the Greek alphabet in its normal order be a more systematic approach? They recently had to do that with hurricanes.

Well, I doubt, to be fair, that QI will be around in, what? 52 years? Not that it's a bad show, but there'll be no Stephen Fry or Alan Davies. The show won't be the show without them.

I see it with you and dotcom in those two roles. You'll just have to decide which is which.

Thanks. I'd probably end up being Alan. Tut. However, I am older, so I claim Stephen's role.

I was merely suggesting ideas instead of making them fit in order.

Oh alright, sorry. I imagine Greek letters and double letters would both make it difficult for the Qi team, but I think they've still to do an ''A'' series so they can put it off a little longer.
