* ArtifactTitle: The title was originally meant to echo ''Radio/ImSorryIllReadThatAgain'', but since ''Clue'' has outlived its parent show by decades, a lot more people know about ''Clue'' than ''ISIRTA''. Also, the subtitle "the antidote to panel games" doesn't make as much sense now as it used to -- back when it was created, there were way more 'serious' panel games on the BBC, rather than the generally comic tone [[{{QI}} of]] [[Series/NevermindTheBuzzcocks those]] [[Series/MockTheWeek played]] [[Series/WouldILieToYou nowadays]]. Graeme once jokingly suggested to change it to "[[FollowTheLeader the template for panel games]]".

The chairman was Humphrey Lyttelton, a jazz trumpeter (the thinking being that improvisational comedy owed a lot to jazz), who created the persona of a curmudgeonly DeadpanSnarker who would rather be doing something else. ''Anything'' else. The regular panelists for most of the show's history were Barry Cryer, Willie Rushton, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden (the third Goodie, Bill Oddie, was in the first two series). After Rushton's death in 1996, the fourth panelist became a rotating position[[note]]Jeremy Hardy usually appears once a series, and some of the more frequent guests have included Rob Brydon, Stephen Fry, Andy Hamilton, Tony Hawks, Paul Merton, David Mitchell and Sandi Toksvig[[/note]]. Because of the show's pedigree, and the fact that the regulars have the final say in who the guests are, being asked to appear on the show is seen as an honour (and many have turned down the opportunity for fear they might ruin it).

The future of the show was in doubt following Lyttelton's death in 2008, although Series 51 was aired in mid-2009 with StephenFry, Jack Dee, and Rob Brydon [[GuestHost taking over the chair for two episodes]] each. The show returned to its regular schedule with Dee chairing every episode later that year. Although it has not been definitively stated that he is the full-time replacement, Dee has chaired every series since.

* CountryMatters: StephenFry's alternate definition of "countryside" is the best-remembered, but there are plenty of other instances as part of the show's long history of GettingCrapPastTheRadar...

* LyricalTic: The improvised blues songs were always filled with cries of "Yeah, man" or "tell it like it is" or "whoa" or anything else appropriate, fitting in with the scratchy-gravelly, 'deep American South' voices they adopted. When StephenFry was once filling in for Graeme, his immaculately clean voice made this complicated, so he simply said "[[UnsoundEffect various American noises from the back of my throat]]".
