For what it's worth I've emailed the Beeb asking as to if/when the XL episodes may be shown. I'm not holding out much hope for an informative reply, but fingers crossed nonetheless.

As did I. I received the following reply this morning...

Quote:
It's great to read you are a fan of 'QI XL' and I can tell you that the series is returning mid October.

However, as we only ever confirm our schedules online 10 days in advance you won''t see anything about the new broadcast dates until the beginning of October. I know you have the programme page already but here it is again; check the NEXT ON section disregarding the repeats -

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00qff3s

I hope this helps for now and you enjoy the series when it returns :-)

It's one of my fave programmes also!


I wonder if they'll start from the beginning, or broadcast the XL of the most recent episode then catch up with the earlier episodes at the end of the regular series.

Can any of the elves illuminate us further?

I got a similar reply this afternoon.

Thank you very much for getting in touch. It's great to hear from you.

I'm a massive fan of QI and can't wait for it to return. I'm delighted to learn you are also an avid watcher.

With regard to your question on QI XL then, I am pleased to confirm that the programme will return to BBC2 in October this year. You can keep an eye on the programme page for further updates:

I hope the above is good news and eases your fears that QI XL had been cancelled.

Thanks again for getting in touch.

Kind Regards,

(etc. etc. - I've deliberately left the chap's name out)

Well, for what it's worth, I have checked the new Radio Times, and there is no XL on between Mon and Fri

Any thoughts on the new credits?

Personally I liked the new images, but I was slightly put off by the flying magnifying glass which looks quite poorly rendered.

It's almost like the P series has been smuggled in unannounced - the October 6th date for the XL version is much the same as previous years as it is a Saturday but the Monday night slot caught me unawares (for the time being at least it is on You Tube in its entirety btw).

Of course, assuming the 16 show run is uninterrupted, the last P episode will air on Christmas Eve.

Maybe it's my OCD but I prefer a TV season to end around then rather than get lost in the Christmas / New Year schedules, not to mention the new stuff that appears in January.

Not that it helps the XL episodes, but then they always get fiddled about with by the BBC.

According to DigiGuide there is no XL edition on 6th October.

One can only hope that it's been delayed a week.

Were I a betting man I'd put a (small) wager on the first P-XL transmission taking place on Saturday 13th October at 22:00, where Digiguide currently has a 'to be announced' placeholder.

My PVR's Guide confirms QI XL 'Panimals' will transmit at 22:00, Saturday October 13th.

Looks like the series is being postponed in November. On 5th November it is not on because there are showing a drama called "Doing Money". The week after that it is showing "People Just Do Nothing".

QI XL will still be on, so that has a chance to catch up with the rest of the series.
