Horrible histories theme tune

Okay, this question has been bugging me for a while. We're big fans of Horrible Histories but have only ever seen the CBBC/rat version. So I keep wondering, on the shows that are hosted by Stephen Fry, do they play the same theme tune including the line "and your host - a talking rat!" or have they changed the theme tune? If they've changed it, what have they changed it to?

bump. Some of you must have watched the Stephen Fry Horrible Histories, surely?

They have changed it - can't remember the line but it does rhyme with Fry! <goes off to iPlayer>

I have watched it - but can't bear it without the rat! Stephen Fry seems to deaden it somehow, which is an enormous shame.

<sorry not to answer OP's question - this was just a verbose way to Mark a place as I'm interested in the answer too>

"Gory stories we supply, and your host is Stephen Fry"

There you go. smile

Thanks Mavisgrind smile

I had been wondering about alternative words that they could possibly use rhyming with 'rat', but none of them were complimentary!
