Despite it being No L, there are Ls visible on the set. I've found 7 of them, can you spot them all ?

There's a good view of the set at 37:07 m:s.

Mike.

I'm sorry if I'm assuming you don't know, but "No-L" is a pun on the Spanish (?) word for Christmas, "Noel." I don't think they intended it to be L-free in any way.

Not always the French NoŽl. I'd say Noel (English) or NoŽl is another word for Christmas in several countries and languages.

More a case of wondering whether anyone Lse spotted the Morse code L on the set.

I'm pretty sure there are only seven Ls on the set.

... It's Latin-ish, it's basically the same. (Say I, who would give anyone calling me Swedish a murderous glare.)

The I in the QI logos on the floor of the set are replaced with the letter L whenever a question is answered incorrectly.

That now makes 9 in total.
