QI goes Dutch
Netherlands makes its own version
Public broadcaster VARA has bought the rights to remake the Stephen Fry panel show, with Dutch author Arthur Japin as host.
Comedian Thomas van Luyn will be the only regular guest, as Alan Davies is in the BBC version.
According to one viewer who has seen some footage from the show, the Netherlands version uses the same questions as the British original. The set, too, is near-identical.
Some Dutch viewers will have already seen the original, as the BBC signal can be picked up near the Channel coast.
The new version begins on December 27.
