Comedy panel show QI heads back to BBC Two
QI, the popular comedy panel show fronted by Stephen Fry, is set to return to BBC Two after its stint on BBC One.
The show, which is set to enter its tenth series this coming autumn is heading back over the watershed after it attracted a series of complaints due to the choice of topical humour.
While fans have criticised the show for being ‘dumbed down’ after hopping channels to the BBC’s flagship slot while the show has also garnered criticism from as far afield as Japan for a string of comments such as the bombing of Hiroshima.
Announcing the channel change Janice Hadlow, controller of BBC Two said: "I'm delighted that QI is returning to its original home. BBC Two looks forward to once again enjoying its wit, its cleverness and its always illuminating devotion to the really quite interesting."
The new series of the show will cover the letter ‘I’.
