Don't Ask Me was a popular British television science show made by Yorkshire Television for the ITV network and ran from 1974 to 1978. It attempted to answer science-based questions and contributors included Magnus Pyke (natural sciences), Rob Buckman (medicine), David Bellamy (biology), Miriam Stoppard (medicine), and Derek Griffiths. Those behind the scenes included Adam Hart-Davis, who later became a well-known science presenter in his own right.

The theme music was "House of the King" by the contemporary Dutch fusion band Focus.

The series was rebroadcast for a time on TVOntario.

A follow up called Don't Just Sit There ran for 19 episodes from 1979 to 1980. It was also produced for Yorkshire TV and featured the same panel.
