Was It Something I Said? is a new Channel 4 panel show hosted by David Mitchell where two teams, captained by Richard Ayoade and Micky Flanagan, compete against each other in a battle of wordplay where they must answer questions based on quotations, biographies, tweets, and even their own words, to win.

The show welcomes a guest narrator each week to read quotations, with Brian Blessed, Phil Daniels and Charles Dance taking the narrator reigns throughout the series. It is one of the first shows to incorporate Twitter as a play along companion for the show, as viewers are encouraged to tweet their answers to the show’s account.

The comedy line up features David Mitchell (Peep Show, That Mitchell and Webb Look) as the host, and the two team captains are Richard Ayoade (The IT Crowd, The Mighty Boosh) and Micky Flanagan (Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Mock the Week) and will also feature panellists ranging from Gabby Logan, Bob Mortimer and Robert Webb.

The series was filmed at The Maidstone Studios, which is the UK’s largest independent High Definition TV studio facility and has previously hosted TV prooductions such as Later…With Jools Holland (2013) and Take Me Out (2010-2013) and Got To Dance (2010).

Don’t miss Was It Something I Said? which starts on Channel 4 on Sunday 13 October 2013 at 22:00.
