These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Hilarious in Hindsight: Here's Charlie Skelton, friend of Mitchell's wife Victoria Coren, describing Coren's ideal male type, back before Mitchell and Coren got together:
"Vicky prefers a shyer, slightly embarrassed flirter. With deep psychological issues, and a problem finding social acceptance. Complicated. Gauche. [...] Reserved to the point of rudeness. Physically awkward." To which Coren responds: "I just like to feel there's more to somebody than meets the eye."
For example, when David and Robert both appeared on Jonathan Ross and Graham Norton's chat shows shortly after Rob had first become a father, both hosts made jokes about how great David looked "considering he had a baby three months ago".
Or on one episode of The Bubble in which Robert Webb appeared, when his fellow panelists claimed that "my wife Abi" was code for David and that Webb always refers to him as "my David". When David looked amusingly shocked, Robert quickly explained he was distinguishing his comedy partner from the author by the same name.
And with Stephen Fry, a little bit. Every time they're on QI together, David comes across as desperately trying to impress him.
