On a music themed episode from 2004 shown on Dave this evening- guests included Linda Smith and Sean Lock- they had edited out Stephen's witty sign off. Does anyone know why?

I don't know. I just looked up what the sign off from that show was, and it's not that it became tasteless after Linda Smith died. It may just have been to fit the show into the time available, or it may be that the closing remark was considered a bit rude.

The closing comment from that show (B11) as originally broadcast was:

"And we leave you with this famous amento, the observation of the conductor Sir Thomas Beecham to a lady cellist: 'Madame, you have between your legs an instrument capable of giving pleasure to thousands, and all you can do is scratch it.' Good night."

Yeah, in the original broadcast, that was in the episode. Unless I'm just psychic.

It's in the DVD version of the episode at least.

Hi: it has to be said what a great loss to British comedy the premature death of Linda Smith was. She would have been a QI regular.
