    Humph in Wonderland stars chairman Humphrey Lyttelton in the title role, with Tony Hawks as the Narrator, Sandi Toksvig as the Queen of Hearts, Tim Brooke-Taylor as the Duchess, Graeme Garden as the Cook and Barry Cryer as Humpty Dumpty. Andy Hamilton also features as the Caterpillar, with Rob Brydon as the Mad Hatter, Jeremy Hardy as the March Hare, Jack Dee as the Cheshire Cat and Colin Sell as the White Rabbit. Among the fun and games are: 'Mornington Crescent', 'Swanee Kazoo', 'Cheddar Gorge', new definitions for the 'Uxbridge English Dictionary', as well as 'Recipes for Nigella Lawson’s Saucy Mouthfuls' (she makes a great sticky tart). Including 20 minutes of bonus material not heard on transmission, this thoroughly daft take on Lewis Carroll is also a fitting tribute to the late, and much-missed, Humphrey Lyttelton.

Iain Pattinson wrote Humphrey Lyttelton's scripts for I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue for the thick end of fifteen years. He didn't bother with the clever end. Before writing for Humph, Iain supplied the chairman's script for The News Quiz and many opening monologues for Loose Ends, also on BBC Radio 4. He was plucked from obscurity to write his first series of Clue in 1992 and subsequently went on to be plucked from obscurity twice a year thereafter to repeat the process. Since then he has also contributed to countless television and radio comedy shows. A list of performers of his scripts now reads like a 'Y to Z' of British comedy. Projects to which he has contributed have amassed four Sony Gold awards, A Bronze Rose of Montreux, a Viewers and Listeners' award, a TRIC award and a Cycling Proficiency Badge.
