The reason that the show works so well is with some of the spontaneity, from the panels and from the presenter, which is why Tom (and people like Brian Blessed, Bruce Forsyth, Alexander Armstrong, etc) do so well when presenting it. Paul Merton can sometimes try to take over it because he's naturally very funny but some quips from Ian Hislop and also from the guests and presenter make it a fantastic show and one of the few I make time for.
They should do a Dr Who version....."Have I Got Who For You"
"You damned courtiers to the Queen, you're nothing but lap dogs to a slip of a girl!"
Hope to meet a nautical cove or two online to chat about Tom, "Who", etc
