It’s Sandi Toksvig’s second series as host, and she has certainly been pleasing audiences and viewers. She and Alan Davies begin by looking at various “ologies”, including oceanography, oenology and ophthalmology.

Joining them are Bill Bailey, Phill Jupitus and first-time contestant Claudia Winkleman as they look at ways to remember pi, an Irish boy who got trapped in a claw game machine, and the colour of fire engines.
