What day in your life would you like to be able to replay on demand?
Susan Makepeace, Staffs

fry and laurie
Fry and Laurie

Stephen Fry: I think the day I met Hugh Laurie and we started writing straight away.

We were both students and had no idea it might lead to anything, it was just fun and delightful.

Ah, how can we ever hope to capture that first fine careless rapture?

The winning question: When recording the Harry Potter tapes, what triggers do you use to remind you which voice to use?
Lisa Hodges, from East Sheen

Stephen Fry: Good question - the recording engineer made a CD which contains all the voices and if I have forgotten one he plays the voice through to me in my little glass recording box.

I think I would definitely forget otherwise. Children really notice these things too - one 10-year-old told me that I'd altered Dumbledore's age between audio books two and three.

Thanks to everyone who submitted questions.
