In series C, episode 8, it was determined that nothing beginning with 'c' could be found which was invented in Corby. There is, however, something of especial import which begins with a 'c' which was invented in Corbie, France, namely, Carolingian script. This is, as I said, only a half-quibble, but I think it deserves mention all these years later as Carolingian script was a fundamental part of what is essentially a renaissance which completely changed the intellectual culture of Western Europe in as varied respects as musical arts and legal culture.

Now that's an interesting quibble :-)

Maybe we ought to have a Q for Quibble show in the next series!
