Standing for "Quite Interesting", the show is hosted by Creator/StephenFry and always includes [[Series/JonathanCreek Alan Davies]] on the panel. Apart from Davies, the panel varies from week to week, but there are a number of recurring guests on (the pool of frequent guests has changed over time but currently includes Jo Brand, BillBailey, Creator/JimmyCarr, [[Series/TopGear Jeremy Clarkson]], [[Series/NevermindTheBuzzcocks Phill Jupitus]], DavidMitchell, Creator/RossNoble, Sue Perkins and Sarah Millican). While the panel is mainly composed of comedians, they will have other famous people on like Sir Terry Wogan, [[Literature/CompleteWorldKnowledge John Hodgman]], Creator/BrianBlessed, [[Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway Greg Proops]], Creator/DavidTennant, Creator/DanielRadcliffe, [[Literature/BadScience Dr. Ben Goldacre]], and Creator/CarrieFisher.

* CrazyCulturalComparison: Occasionally when [[{{Eagleland}} Rich Hall or Reginald Hunter]] is on. In the Series D Series/ChildrenInNeed special, subjects in the second half of the episode included ''TheClangers'' and Oliver Postgate; Bill and Ben the Flowerpot Men; the [[EarWorm "Crazy Frog"]] [[MemeticMutation ringtone]]; [[BritishAccents Newcastle accents]]; and [[EurovisionSongContest Terry Wogan]]. Right before the end, Rich, having been silent for about ten minutes, buzzed in just to say, "Ever since the Clangers I've been lost. The last picture I recognized was the KKK, and that's pretty sad."

Fish]], which got its own televised spinoff in ''No Such Thing as the News'' (which is basically the same as the podcast except there's a camera and the facts under discussion are at least tangentially related to current events).

** In "Incomprehensible", Stephen tells the panel about a woman who deliberately put herself through the most debasing and degrading experiences she could think of. Alan says, "But did she go on ''MockTheWeek''?"

** It happens in the actual series as well: Alan quotes the song about ''Creator/PeterCushing'' (namely "Peter Cushing Lives in Whitstable" by The Jellybottys) as "Peter Cushing lives in Whitstable, I have seen him on his bicycle, I have seen him buying vegetables, Peter Cushing lives in Whitstable", when it's actually "Peter Cushing lives in Whitstable, he goes shopping on his bicycle, you can meet him buying vegetables".[[note]]Alan's modified lyrics are semi-justified though, in that Alan ''also'' lives in Whitstable and could at one point have seen Peter Cushing buying vegetables, both being vegetarians.[[/note]] After the popularity of the song grew, thanks to its mention in the series, the Jellybottys released a synth remake with Alan's lyrics.
