For those who aren't familiar, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue is a comedy show described as the antidote to panel games'. Four comedians are given ridiculous tasks to perform like singing one song to the tune of another, or composing a letter by each panelist alternating one word at a time. Full of innuendo, puns, skits and witticisms, it's quite idiosyncratic, peculiarly English in a very Radio 4 kind of way, and extremely funny.

These two CDs contain four episodes from the 51st and 52nd series of programme, from 2009. These were recorded after Humphrey Lyttleton (who had chaired the show for decades) had died, and Jack Dee is chairing all four episodes on this compilation. Dee is an excellent choice to replace Humphrey - his deadpan grumpiness is well-suited to the role. Nonetheless, I must say that the show is not the same, and never will be again. It is still very funny and there are moments that are absolutely hilarious. Barry Cryer singing `Anarchy in the UK' to the tune of `Singing in the Rain' followed immediately by David Mitchell singing `Whiter Shade of Pale' to the tune of the theme from the Muppets in the fourth episode made for the funniest round of `One song to the tune of another' I have ever heard.

It's not quite like it used to be, but it's still very good indeed. If you're new to the show, earlier compilations containing older episodes are probably a better place to start. But if you're an existing fan who is after some new(ish) episodes, this compilation is definitely worth having.

Humphrey Littleton is rightfully described as an irreplaceable part of ISIHAC and it was difficult to see how the show could continue without him. Perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that it has, as witnessed by this first post-Humph collection, because ISIHAC continued, and in fact thrived, after the sad loss of Willie Rushton who also appeared essential to the show. There's good reason that there is a blue plaque to Willie Rushton at Mornington Crescent tube station.

Just as Willie Rushton was replaced by a series of guests who have made their different individual marks on the show (like the excellent singer Rob Brydon and the excellently bad singer Jeremy Hardy) so the chairman's role has now passed on to Jack Dee. Dee has an inbuilt advantage in the role, one of Humph's essential contributions was to be comically miserable, something Dee has done all through his career and so something he can pull off (thank you Samantha) naturally and without looking like a Humph imitator while keeping the essential balance of the humour. It works, so of all the Chairmen of ISIHAC in the series since Humph left us, it's not a surprise that Dee is now in charge.

So, the sad loss of Chairman Humph aside, how is the new ISIHAC? The great news is that it is still the funniest thing on radio by a mile. Samantha still helps with the points, Lionel Blair is still the king of Give Us A Clue and Mornington Crescent is still a baffling game with ever developing rules - but the show continues to defy the laws of show business by remaining totally fresh even after 30-odd years.

(Still) highly recommended.

Length: 6:54 Mins
Having first been broadcast back in 1972, BBC Radio's longstanding comedy panel game 'I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue' has become somewhat of a British institution over the years. Originally hosted by Humphrey Lyttelton, after the great man's sad death, Stephen Fry, Rob Brydon and Jack Dee all took to the hosting seat - later to be taken up solely by Jack Dee.

Here we have four full episodes from 2009, taken from the 51st and 52nd series, and all hosted by Dee. The audibook consists of two CDs, with the episodes themselves split down into handy chapters, with their own individual titles making finding a particular sketch reasonably easy.

Because you've located this listing, it's probably quite safe to say that you're already reasonably familiar with what 'I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue' is all about. However, to be very brief, the show is very much in the same vein as the likes of 'Just A Minute', 'My Word!', 'My Music', 'Call My Bluff' or any other such comedy panel games where the real aim is to be humorous rather than 'winning'. In the shows, the host (Dee in this case) presents a variety of wacky and often silly games at the panel, often with very amusing results.

The panel across the four episodes on this 13th collection include the usual regular panellists - Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer and Graeme Garden, as well as the special guests Jeremy Hardy, Sandi Toksvig, Rob Brydon and David Michell.

Rob Brydon and David Michell in particular are very much on form throughout, with their quick wit and generally comical air very much suited to and projected across the various panel games.

No commercial radio channel would have allowed this programme to hit the airwaves. On the BBC it has enjoyed continued success since 1972, partly because of its silly but very funny verbal dexterity, partly because much of it is incomprehensible to the unaccustomed ear, and mostly because the more times one listens to it the funnier it becomes.

Humphrey Lyttleton was the original chairman, and we all missed him when he died in 2008. Several chairmen attempted to fill his shoes, but Jack Dee seems to have fit the bill very well, having a similar droll sense of contempt for the panellists and tender feel for the double entendre. The four episodes from 2009 on these two CDs of the 13th collection have the three regular panellists; Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer, and Graeme Garden - who first devised the show. Each episode features a guest panellist, in turn; Jeremy Hardy, Sandi Toksvig, Rob Brydon, and David Mitchell.

Those of you who know and love `I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue' will not need any further encouragement to listen to these episodes. For the uninitiated it can be something of an acquired taste, and it does require some mental agility to grasp all the puns and the buried humour. But once bitten it is hard to resist.

I listened to these on my ear-player on the bus and the tube. Someone laughing to themselves on public transport can quite often secure plenty of elbow room...

I'm only giving this set four stars because I feel that it is a little bit flat in some places, and perhaps the team has not yet fully settled in without Humph. Some of the episodes I have heard more recently on Radio 4 have been noticeably better than these four.
