# Horrible Histories Gory...

0:00:200:00:23

# ..Games! #

0:00:230:00:24

Hello, and welcome to Gory Games, with me, Dave Lamb.

0:00:240:00:28

You may recognise my voice from Come Dine With Me.

0:00:280:00:31

And me, Rattus Rattus.

0:00:310:00:32

You may recognise me from I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

0:00:320:00:37

I was one of the rats!

0:00:370:00:38

Let's just get on with the show,

0:00:380:00:40

and meet today's horrible historians.

0:00:400:00:42

Hi. I'm Natalie and I'm from Manchester.

0:00:420:00:44

Hello there, Natalie.

0:00:440:00:46

Hi, I'm Dray and I'm from Coventry.

0:00:460:00:47

Hello, Dray.

0:00:470:00:49

Hi, I'm Mimi and I'm from Liverpool.

0:00:490:00:51

Hello, Mimi.

0:00:510:00:53

Welcome, everyone. And you can play along at home, too,

0:00:530:00:57

using the Gory Games app.

0:00:570:00:59

Check out the CBBC website.

0:00:590:01:02

Right, you lot are playing to win Year Spheres.

0:01:020:01:05

Yes, and at the end of the show the person with the highest year score

0:01:050:01:09

will win a prize of my choosing that can only be described as fabulous.

0:01:090:01:14

Or putrid, fetid, distasteful, or rank.

0:01:140:01:18

Like I said, Dave, fabulous.

0:01:180:01:20

Yes, let's just get this show on the road, shall we, with round one.

0:01:200:01:23

What's it about? It's over to the Gory Grid to find out.

0:01:230:01:26

It's the Nasty Knights.

0:01:280:01:30

So four questions on knights coming up.

0:01:310:01:33

The person who gets the most right wins the first Year Sphere.

0:01:330:01:37

And your four knight topics are -

0:01:370:01:41

Mimi, you pick first this round. Which of those takes your fancy?

0:01:440:01:49

Toilets.

0:01:490:01:51

That is a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:01:510:01:53

Certainly is.

0:01:530:01:54

True or false? When you went to the toilet in a castle

0:01:540:01:58

your poo dropped straight down into the moat below.

0:01:580:02:01

So, when you went to the toilet in a castle,

0:02:010:02:04

your poo dropped straight down into the moat below.

0:02:040:02:07

Is that true or is that false?

0:02:070:02:09

OK, the girls both think it's true. Dray thinks it's false.

0:02:090:02:14

Who's right?

0:02:140:02:15

It's true. So any goldfish in the moat were soon brown fish!

0:02:150:02:19

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:02:190:02:20

A charming image(!)

0:02:200:02:22

Well done, Mimi and Natalie. That's the first points to you.

0:02:220:02:24

Mimi, you get an eyeball. Natalie, a skull for you.

0:02:240:02:28

No brains as yet, Dray, but there's plenty of time

0:02:280:02:30

and, Dray, it's your turn to pick a topic.

0:02:300:02:32

Can I have tournaments?

0:02:320:02:34

Is this true or false?

0:02:340:02:37

So, what do you think? True or false?

0:02:410:02:44

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:02:440:02:46

Everyone's gone for false. Are they all right? Let's find out.

0:02:460:02:49

The answer is it's false.

0:02:490:02:52

In fact, one of the rules of the tournament

0:02:520:02:55

was don't aim to kill an opponent.

0:02:550:02:57

Well played, everyone. Points all round there.

0:02:570:03:00

Natalie, it's your turn to pick a topic.

0:03:000:03:02

Um, can I have games, please?

0:03:020:03:04

True or false? In 1477, King Edward IV outlawed archery practice.

0:03:060:03:11

So, King Edward IV outlawed archery practice.

0:03:110:03:14

Is that true or is that false?

0:03:140:03:17

Mimi and Dray both think it's true.

0:03:170:03:19

Natalie is the only one who thinks that's false.

0:03:190:03:22

Let's find out, shall we?

0:03:220:03:23

It's false.

0:03:230:03:25

In 1477, King Edward outlawed the game of skittles

0:03:250:03:28

because it was so popular people were playing it

0:03:280:03:31

instead of practising their archery, which was a vital skill for battle.

0:03:310:03:35

Natalie, well played. One skull for you,

0:03:350:03:38

meaning you're in the lead with one question left in this round,

0:03:380:03:41

and that question is on stairs, and it's coming up right now.

0:03:410:03:45

True or false? Most stairways in castle towers go up clockwise.

0:03:450:03:50

So, most stairways in castle towers go up clockwise.

0:03:500:03:54

Is that true or false?

0:03:540:03:56

Natalie and Mimi agreeing again, both thinking it's true.

0:03:560:03:59

Dray thinks it's false.

0:03:590:04:00

Let's find out what the answer is.

0:04:000:04:02

True. If you're defending your castle and someone chases you up a tower,

0:04:020:04:08

then it's easier for a right-handed swordsman

0:04:080:04:10

to back up the spiral stairs and fight if the stairs are clockwise.

0:04:100:04:13

Not just a pretty face, eh?

0:04:130:04:16

Not even that, unfortunately.

0:04:160:04:17

Well done, Natalie, and well done, Mimi. That's a point apiece,

0:04:170:04:21

and at the end of the round with four out of four, Natalie,

0:04:210:04:24

-you have won the quiz.

-CHEERING

0:04:240:04:27

So it's time to choose your Year Sphere from...

0:04:270:04:30

DEEP VOICE: ..the pyramid of doom!

0:04:300:04:34

CHOIR: # Ah, ah, ah-ah, ah!

0:04:340:04:38

-Whoa!

-Wait a minute, Rattus.

0:04:380:04:39

A, that is my bit, and B,

0:04:390:04:42

it's the potty pyramid!

0:04:420:04:45

I thought pyramid of doom sounded more dramatic. You know, more doomy.

0:04:450:04:49

I don't want doom, I want potty!

0:04:490:04:51

Ooh!

0:04:510:04:53

I'm so sorry. Natalie, please, help yourself,

0:04:530:04:55

but pick carefully because AD dates will be added to your score,

0:04:550:04:58

but BC dates will be subtracted.

0:04:580:05:01

DEEP VOICE: Subtracted!

0:05:010:05:03

Stop it with the doom stuff!

0:05:030:05:05

We'll find out what's in that Year Sphere at the end of the show.

0:05:050:05:09

Now, winning the knights quiz means that Natalie

0:05:090:05:12

is automatically through to play the knights game,

0:05:120:05:14

but will she be alone or will everyone get to play?

0:05:140:05:17

Let's find out, shall we?

0:05:170:05:19

Ooh, it's a single player game and I hope you're feeling brave,

0:05:220:05:25

because it's a Stupid Death Game.

0:05:250:05:28

THUNDER CLAP

0:05:280:05:31

So off down the time sewer with you, Natalie. Good luck.

0:05:310:05:34

It's time to play...

0:05:410:05:43

Over to you-know-who to explain the game.

0:05:430:05:46

Warning!

0:05:460:05:48

This story contains poo, death and, well, poo death. It's very good.

0:05:480:05:53

So, one night in 1291, some crusaders raided a Saracen camp,

0:05:530:05:58

but one of them tripped on a tent rope, fell into a toilet hole,

0:05:580:06:01

-and drowned in poo!

-HE LAUGHS

0:06:010:06:04

As stupid deaths go, that's my number two!

0:06:040:06:07

Your challenge is to get from one side of the Saracen camp

0:06:070:06:10

to the other and rescue your friend from the poo pit

0:06:100:06:13

without waking the sleeping Saracen.

0:06:130:06:15

Touch any tent rope and the bells will ring.

0:06:150:06:18

Do that three times, it's game over. Your time starts now.

0:06:180:06:24

So, here goes Natalie playing Knight Fall.

0:06:240:06:28

Look at that. What a low trajectory she's gone for there, Rattus.

0:06:280:06:31

Excellent, completely tingle-free in the first go.

0:06:310:06:34

Yeah, lovely. Lovely low technique, we've not seen this before.

0:06:340:06:37

Will it work for her, though?

0:06:370:06:39

BELL RINGS

0:06:390:06:40

Oh, no, it won't, she's bashed a bell with her bottom!

0:06:400:06:43

Yeah, the Saracen's stirring a little bit there.

0:06:430:06:45

She's got to be careful. She's got two more of those bell rings

0:06:450:06:48

up her sleeve, and then it's serious trouble, I'm afraid.

0:06:480:06:51

And, oh, dear me, that bell is directly above her.

0:06:510:06:54

Can she possibly squeeze...?

0:06:540:06:55

-BELL RINGS

-Oh, the Saracen is stirring again!

0:06:550:06:59

Perhaps she should've climbed over.

0:06:590:07:01

Tick tock! Your time is running out!

0:07:010:07:04

HE LAUGHS

0:07:040:07:06

You're not helping, Death, but she's done it, she's out!

0:07:060:07:09

Now it's time to rescue the knight. She's there, she's got to him.

0:07:090:07:12

-Now all she's got to do is pull him out of there.

-Pull!

0:07:120:07:15

-Pull him out!

-Pull! Heave!

0:07:150:07:18

Get him out of the poo!

0:07:180:07:19

He's got to get out of that poo quickly now.

0:07:190:07:23

He's coming! He's coming! That's it!

0:07:230:07:25

The crusader is out. Good news for Natalie,

0:07:250:07:28

and good news for the Saracen whose toilet is now completely unblocked.

0:07:280:07:32

Congratulations, very well played. Help yourself, of course.

0:07:330:07:37

Another Year Sphere.

0:07:370:07:39

You were fantastic at that. Perfect.

0:07:410:07:43

So, round two,

0:07:430:07:44

and to find out what's up next, it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:07:440:07:48

It's the Rotten Romans.

0:07:500:07:52

Four questions again, and here are your all-important Roman topics -

0:07:520:07:56

Dray, it's your turn to pick first this time.

0:08:000:08:03

Can I have the army, please?

0:08:030:08:05

In 52BC, the Roman army faced the Gauls of France,

0:08:050:08:11

but they only won because the Gauls wouldn't fight in the rain.

0:08:110:08:14

Was this because the Gauls,

0:08:140:08:16

A, were worried about their swords rusting?

0:08:160:08:19

B, thought it was a bad omen from the gods?

0:08:190:08:22

Or C, didn't want the rain to make their blue war paint run?

0:08:220:08:26

The Gauls were A, worried about their swords rusting,

0:08:260:08:30

B, thought it was a bad omen from the gods,

0:08:300:08:32

or C, didn't want the rain to make their blue warpaint run.

0:08:320:08:35

Let's see your answers now, please. Everyone's agreed that it's B.

0:08:350:08:39

Let's find out the answer.

0:08:390:08:40

The answer is B.

0:08:400:08:42

The Gauls thought it was a bad omen from the gods.

0:08:420:08:46

I love heavy rain. Makes the sewers like a log flume.

0:08:460:08:49

HE CHUCKLES

0:08:490:08:51

Don't ask about the logs.

0:08:510:08:52

Well done, everybody, points all round.

0:08:520:08:54

An eyeball, a brain and a skull.

0:08:540:08:56

Natalie, it's your turn to pick next.

0:08:560:08:57

Can I have cures, please?

0:08:570:08:59

Here comes your question.

0:09:000:09:02

A, performing amputations.

0:09:080:09:10

B, killing flies.

0:09:100:09:12

Or C, blood-letting?

0:09:120:09:14

What do you think? Is it A, B or C?

0:09:140:09:17

Well, Mimi and Natalie agreeing on C. Dray thinks it's A.

0:09:190:09:23

Let's find out the answer.

0:09:230:09:24

The answer is -

0:09:240:09:25

OK, Natalie, Mimi, another point apiece there,

0:09:280:09:31

and that means it's Mimi's turn to choose.

0:09:310:09:33

Manners, please.

0:09:330:09:35

And that is a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:09:350:09:38

According to one famous Roman writer, Emperor Claudius declared

0:09:380:09:42

all men should be allowed to do what at the dinner table?

0:09:420:09:46

Was it -

0:09:460:09:50

So, what do you think?

0:09:520:09:54

Was it A, yawn, B, burp, or C, fart?

0:09:540:09:57

Everybody's gone for B. What's the answer, Rattus?

0:09:570:10:01

The answer is -

0:10:010:10:02

Yes, Claudius

0:10:020:10:03

declared all men should be able to fart

0:10:030:10:06

at the dinner table after hearing about someone who fell ill

0:10:060:10:09

trying to keep one in. Not something I would ever do.

0:10:090:10:12

HE FARTS

0:10:120:10:13

Such a pleasure working with you, Rattus(!)

0:10:130:10:16

One question left in this round. All still to play for.

0:10:160:10:19

The final topic is earthquakes. Let's hear that question.

0:10:190:10:23

What did we Romans believe caused earthquakes?

0:10:230:10:27

A, the giant who holds up the world doing a burp.

0:10:270:10:31

HE BURPS

0:10:310:10:32

B, giants in the mountains awaking from their sleep.

0:10:320:10:37

Or C, the god of elephants tripping over a sacred tree?

0:10:370:10:41

So, what do you think? Is it A, B or C?

0:10:410:10:44

Let's see your answers.

0:10:440:10:46

Ah, Mimi's on her own this time. She thinks it's A.

0:10:460:10:49

What's the answer, please?

0:10:490:10:51

The answer is B.

0:10:510:10:53

We thought earthquakes were caused by giants

0:10:530:10:56

awaking from their slumber in the mountains.

0:10:560:10:58

Stands to reason, doesn't it? Yeah.

0:10:580:11:01

Well played, Dray and Natalie. That's a point apiece.

0:11:010:11:04

At the end of the round, it's Natalie, again.

0:11:040:11:07

You've won yourself another Year Sphere.

0:11:070:11:09

Please step forward and pick one.

0:11:090:11:12

And try to avoid the Stone Age ones.

0:11:150:11:17

Good advice for both contestants on the show

0:11:170:11:19

and the inventor of the glass time machine.

0:11:190:11:22

That is a very complicated joke for you, Rattus.

0:11:220:11:25

Yeah, actually I feel a bit faint.

0:11:250:11:28

-Have a little lie down, fella.

-LAUGHTER

0:11:280:11:31

Feel free to stay asleep for the whole show.

0:11:310:11:33

So, well played, Natalie.

0:11:330:11:35

As winner of the quiz, you are through to play the Roman game.

0:11:350:11:38

But will you be going it alone or will the others get to play too?

0:11:380:11:42

There's only one way to find out.

0:11:420:11:44

It's an all-play Gory Game.

0:11:470:11:50

So off you go down the time sewer. Lead them off, Natalie.

0:11:500:11:54

Good luck, Mimi.

0:11:550:11:56

The Romans used some pretty ruthless tactics. It's time to play...

0:11:580:12:01

If your fortress was under siege by Romans,

0:12:030:12:05

you'd find all sorts of things

0:12:050:12:07

being catapulted at you - rocks, beehives,

0:12:070:12:09

even the severed heads of captured colleagues.

0:12:090:12:12

Luckily, in this game you're on the Roman side and your challenge

0:12:120:12:16

is to fire as many missiles into your fortress target as possible.

0:12:160:12:19

-Ready, steady.

-KLAXON BLARES

0:12:190:12:21

Here we go with Savage Siege.

0:12:210:12:23

Oh, Natalie grabs a beehive. Mimi and Dray have got rocks.

0:12:230:12:27

Let's see how they get on with firing those. Ooh!

0:12:270:12:30

-That was close!

-Close! That was close for Mimi.

0:12:300:12:33

It sort of bounced one side, then the other,

0:12:330:12:36

and then decided, "I'm not going into that basket."

0:12:360:12:38

Whoa! Double rocks! That's a point each for Mimi and Dray.

0:12:380:12:42

There's another point there for Dray.

0:12:430:12:46

Two rocks in for Dray.

0:12:460:12:49

So he's found his range with the rocks. Now here goes Natalie.

0:12:490:12:53

Oh, it's a lovely effort but it just strikes the pillar.

0:12:530:12:56

Oh! A double score! Double score with the head!

0:12:560:12:59

What a double that was, Rattus!

0:12:590:13:00

Two decapitated heads simultaneously.

0:13:000:13:03

Will they do that again, I wonder? Yes, Dray.

0:13:030:13:06

Oh, no, Mimi, not quite.

0:13:060:13:09

Gory Games, the only game show where you'll see severed heads

0:13:090:13:12

-fired at a target.

-More's the pity.

0:13:120:13:15

30 seconds remaining.

0:13:150:13:16

Another synchronised slam dunk from Mimi and Dray!

0:13:160:13:19

That's terrific sieging!

0:13:190:13:20

It's a battle royal between these two, isn't it, Rattus?

0:13:200:13:24

Natalie's giving it everything but she's still yet to register.

0:13:240:13:27

No such trouble for Dray, he's miles ahead!

0:13:270:13:30

Miles ahe... Doesn't matter. Forget it.

0:13:300:13:32

Oh, yes, look at this. Natalie's got one.

0:13:320:13:34

She'll be pleased with that.

0:13:340:13:35

But I don't think she can catch Dray,

0:13:350:13:38

who's built a comfortable lead.

0:13:380:13:40

That's a valiant effort but there's just seconds left.

0:13:400:13:43

Can Mimi catch Dray?

0:13:430:13:46

Oh!

0:13:460:13:48

Time's up.

0:13:480:13:49

No, she can't. Dray bags a Year Sphere.

0:13:490:13:52

Welcome back, everybody.

0:13:530:13:55

Very well played indeed.

0:13:550:13:57

So, Dray, with seven, you won the challenge.

0:13:570:14:00

CHEERING

0:14:000:14:02

Help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:14:020:14:03

TRIUMPHANT CHORUS

0:14:030:14:07

Good choice.

0:14:070:14:08

There we go. Right, on to round three.

0:14:100:14:13

To find out what's up next, it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:14:130:14:16

It's the Measly Middle Ages.

0:14:170:14:20

Four questions then on the Middle Ages

0:14:200:14:22

and your all-important topics are -

0:14:220:14:24

Natalie, it is your turn to lead us off.

0:14:290:14:32

Joan of Arc, please.

0:14:320:14:33

True or false? Joan of Arc led the French army

0:14:340:14:38

in battle against the English when she was only 17 years old.

0:14:380:14:42

So, what do you think? True or false?

0:14:420:14:45

Show me your answers now, please.

0:14:450:14:47

Everyone's gone for true. What's the right answer?

0:14:470:14:49

It's true.

0:14:490:14:51

Aged just 17, she led an army that ended the famous Siege of Orleans

0:14:510:14:55

and turned the tide of the Hundred Years War in favour of the French.

0:14:550:14:59

In a word - boo!

0:14:590:15:02

Well done, everybody, that is a point each to start the round.

0:15:020:15:06

Mimi, it's your turn to pick a topic.

0:15:060:15:08

Kings, please.

0:15:080:15:10

True or false? Richard I,

0:15:100:15:13

otherwise known as Richard the Lionheart, offered to sell London.

0:15:130:15:18

Could that possibly be true?

0:15:180:15:20

Show me your answers, please.

0:15:200:15:22

Mimi and Dray think it's true. Natalie thinks it's false.

0:15:220:15:25

Let's find out what the answer is.

0:15:250:15:27

It's true!

0:15:270:15:28

He spent most of his time in France and didn't like England much.

0:15:280:15:31

I mean, what's not to like? Apart from the weather, the food,

0:15:310:15:34

and the stinky peasants. HE SOBS

0:15:340:15:38

I need a bath!

0:15:380:15:41

Excellent work from Mimi and Dray, a point apiece,

0:15:410:15:44

and, Dray, it's your turn to pick.

0:15:440:15:46

Sieges, please.

0:15:460:15:48

Oh, no, it's a prop question,

0:15:480:15:50

which means I have to go over to retrieve a prop.

0:15:500:15:53

I've been thinking about this, Rattus.

0:15:530:15:55

I have a one in three chance of choosing the right cupboard,

0:15:550:15:59

so the odds of me getting it wrong this often in a row are one to...

0:15:590:16:02

-Lots.

-Yeah, one to lots.

0:16:020:16:05

So I'm just going to go for it, I think.

0:16:050:16:07

Oh!

0:16:070:16:08

Dave, I have long been of the opinion that maths is not a friend.

0:16:080:16:12

Statistically, I've got to be right this time, haven't I?

0:16:120:16:15

-Oh!

-Dave, never trust maths.

0:16:150:16:18

It's got to be in this one. Yes, it is. Good.

0:16:180:16:21

I've found the prop and... Oh, fantastic(!)

0:16:210:16:24

It's just a load of rat droppings.

0:16:240:16:26

Crikey, I could've stayed here and asked you for these, Rattus.

0:16:260:16:30

Anyway, true or false? During the Siege of Orleans in 1429,

0:16:300:16:35

the starving French got so hungry that they ate rat droppings.

0:16:350:16:39

What do you think?

0:16:390:16:41

Is that true or is that false?

0:16:410:16:44

Everybody's gone for true and I can tell you it is true.

0:16:440:16:48

Congratulations. you've all got a point.

0:16:480:16:51

All still to play for. One question left in this round.

0:16:510:16:53

The topic is fortune tellers and bad luck, Rattus,

0:16:530:16:57

that is a question from Death.

0:16:570:17:00

THUNDER CLAP

0:17:000:17:03

True or false?

0:17:030:17:05

William the Conqueror's personal fortune teller drowned at sea.

0:17:050:17:09

William the Conqueror's personal fortune teller drowned at sea.

0:17:090:17:13

Is that true or false?

0:17:130:17:14

Show me now.

0:17:140:17:16

Everyone's gone for true.

0:17:160:17:17

Death, what's the answer?

0:17:170:17:19

It's true. The fortune teller drowned.

0:17:190:17:22

What's so stupid about that death?

0:17:220:17:24

Well, on hearing the news William said, "He should've seen it coming."

0:17:240:17:28

LAUGHTER

0:17:280:17:30

Good one, William, but I do the jokes, OK?

0:17:300:17:33

Well, the bad ones, anyway.

0:17:330:17:34

I heard that!

0:17:340:17:35

Sorry, your Deathiness.

0:17:350:17:38

Ooh! Well played, everybody. Points all round there. Lovely stuff.

0:17:380:17:42

And that means that Natalie, just for the moment,

0:17:420:17:45

you are history, but Mimi, Dray, it's tie-breaker time.

0:17:450:17:49

SIREN WAILS

0:17:490:17:51

Beginning with the letter "W"

0:17:510:17:53

what was the first name of the Scottish rebel who fought Edward...

0:17:530:17:56

-Dray.

-William.

0:17:560:17:58

Beginning with "W" what was the first name

0:17:580:18:00

of the Scottish rebel who fought Edward I of England

0:18:000:18:03

and whose surname was Wallace? It is William, Dray,

0:18:030:18:05

you're absolutely right. Help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:18:050:18:08

TRIUMPHANT CHORUS

0:18:080:18:11

OK, Dray, you won the Middle Ages quiz, so you're through to play

0:18:130:18:17

the Middle Ages game, but will you be going it alone?

0:18:170:18:20

Let's find out, shall we?

0:18:200:18:22

It's an all-play Gory Game. Off down the time sewer with the lot of you.

0:18:250:18:31

-In you go.

-Woo!

-Away you go, Mimi.

0:18:330:18:36

William the Conqueror's funeral was like no other.

0:18:360:18:39

His servants stole his treasure and the church burned down.

0:18:390:18:42

It's time to play...

0:18:420:18:43

You are William's servants and your challenge

0:18:450:18:48

is to take his treasure and put it in your chest.

0:18:480:18:50

All the treasure is colour-coded and you must only take your own loot.

0:18:500:18:54

You'd better be quick because the church is going to burn down.

0:18:540:18:57

Whoever collects the most pieces wins the Year Sphere,

0:18:570:19:00

and your time starts now.

0:19:000:19:01

KLAXON BLARES

0:19:010:19:03

Of course, they have to steal the treasure that is colour-coded

0:19:030:19:07

from Billy the Conqueror's tomb.

0:19:070:19:10

Billy the Conqueror?

0:19:100:19:12

Historical figures and me go way back.

0:19:120:19:14

Mimi started well with a candlestick.

0:19:140:19:17

Dray's already got two! Extraordinary thieving, Rattus.

0:19:170:19:21

Extraordinary!

0:19:210:19:22

And Natalie's off the mark.

0:19:220:19:24

Dray edging ahead with his third piece.

0:19:240:19:27

Mimi's hot on his heels and he knows it.

0:19:270:19:29

Look at him working away at that plate.

0:19:290:19:32

We should mention at this point that during his funeral

0:19:340:19:37

William the Conqueror's belly exploded.

0:19:370:19:40

RATTUS CACKLES

0:19:400:19:41

I've got a horrible feeling

0:19:410:19:43

that's going to happen here at some point.

0:19:430:19:45

So look out for that one, Rattus.

0:19:450:19:47

-I do hope so.

-That's why they're wearing their safety goggles.

0:19:470:19:50

Thieves generally don't wear goggles,

0:19:500:19:53

though some of them wear eye masks.

0:19:530:19:55

That's because they don't want to be seen.

0:19:550:19:57

Absolutely. This is for totally different reasons.

0:19:570:19:59

-Oh!

-And we saw it there.

-There goes Billy.

0:19:590:20:01

A shower of yellowy-green slime

0:20:010:20:05

tells us that Billy the Conq's guts have exploded.

0:20:050:20:09

Yes, I do shorten Conqueror to Conqs,

0:20:090:20:11

as well as William to Billy. I knew him extremely well.

0:20:110:20:15

-Billy bile there everywhere, Dave.

-Absolutely.

0:20:150:20:18

Oh, there's a lovely large goblet there for Mimi.

0:20:180:20:20

And there's another one for Natalie.

0:20:200:20:22

I doubt that treasure is worth as much now it's all covered in guts.

0:20:220:20:26

Maybe, but it's not stopped them thieving it

0:20:260:20:29

and the scores are very close.

0:20:290:20:30

30 seconds remaining.

0:20:310:20:33

The last moments of the game now. It's all still to play for.

0:20:330:20:36

It's a race to the finish.

0:20:360:20:38

Dray just about maintaining his lead.

0:20:380:20:40

The thieving goes on. They're all doing remarkably well here.

0:20:400:20:44

It's a terrific example of how to thieve at a funeral.

0:20:440:20:47

It's getting tricky to see now with all that smoke.

0:20:470:20:50

The fire is in the church.

0:20:500:20:52

-Fire!

-It's going to burn down, Rattus!

0:20:520:20:55

They're going to have to finish off their thieving

0:20:550:20:57

and escape as quickly as possible.

0:20:570:20:59

A fifth piece for Mimi but this is a sixth piece for Natalie!

0:20:590:21:03

Time's up.

0:21:030:21:04

Oh, that's a Year Sphere each then for her and Dray.

0:21:040:21:08

CHEERING

0:21:080:21:09

Welcome back, everybody, welcome back.

0:21:090:21:12

What tremendous thieving!

0:21:120:21:15

So, Natalie, help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:21:150:21:18

Year Sphere for you. And, Dray, grab yourself one.

0:21:180:21:22

Excellent.

0:21:230:21:25

So, Mimi, no Year Spheres as yet

0:21:250:21:27

but it's perfectly possible to win this competition

0:21:270:21:30

by not getting any Year Spheres at all.

0:21:300:21:32

It's the final round.

0:21:320:21:33

It's over to the Gory Grid one last time to find out what we've got.

0:21:330:21:37

It's the Vile Victorians. Good day!

0:21:380:21:41

-Good day.

-Good day!

0:21:410:21:42

There's no quirky quiz in our final round,

0:21:420:21:45

so it's straight down the time sewer for our big all-play end game.

0:21:450:21:49

Off you go, everybody. Go on, Natalie.

0:21:490:21:51

-Well done. In you go, Dray.

-Whoopsy!

0:21:530:21:55

When Queen Victoria was but a child,

0:21:550:21:58

surgeons wanted to find out more about how the human body worked

0:21:580:22:02

and for this they needed dead bodies. It's time to play...

0:22:020:22:05

Your challenge is to steal three corpses from the graveyard,

0:22:070:22:10

get them through the railings and onto the carts, find the key

0:22:100:22:13

to the cemetery gates and plonk them onto the surgeon's table.

0:22:130:22:17

-If you hear this noise...

-WHISTLE BLOWS

0:22:170:22:19

..a policeman is coming

0:22:190:22:21

and you have to rush back to the cemetery and hide.

0:22:210:22:23

A second whistle means he's gone and you can carry on.

0:22:230:22:26

The first person to get all their bodies to the table

0:22:260:22:29

and grab the money the surgeons left for them is the winner.

0:22:290:22:32

So if you law-breakers are ready, three, two, one, thieve!

0:22:320:22:36

KLAXON BLARES

0:22:360:22:37

There goes the massive hooter and the grave robbing has begun.

0:22:370:22:42

Mimi is yanking her body through.

0:22:420:22:44

Dray's through already.

0:22:440:22:45

And they're off. This is a terrific flying start from these two.

0:22:450:22:49

Natalie not far behind.

0:22:490:22:50

Now this, Rattus, this is the tricky bit.

0:22:500:22:53

This is where they have to unlock the cemetery gates using a key

0:22:530:22:56

attached to the body's trousers.

0:22:560:22:58

This can be quite fiddly,

0:22:580:23:00

especially with those cobwebs everywhere.

0:23:000:23:02

-Oh! And Mimi's through.

-She's through! She's through!

0:23:020:23:05

Mimi's through and the first corpse is delivered. Lovely job.

0:23:050:23:09

Oh, look, Rattus. That cobweb has gone on Mimi's head.

0:23:090:23:12

She looks like a badger!

0:23:120:23:14

But it's not put her off. She's already after corpse number two!

0:23:140:23:18

Dave, just to check, are those real bodies?

0:23:180:23:21

No, they're not, Rattus.

0:23:210:23:23

Very realistic, aren't they, the smaller ones?

0:23:230:23:25

Those are the contestants!

0:23:250:23:27

-They're real. We've just been talking to them.

-Of course.

0:23:270:23:31

And Dray also has his first corpse and he's back through the gates,

0:23:310:23:35

trying to get to his second one.

0:23:350:23:37

And there he is, there's his second one.

0:23:370:23:39

Yes, and Natalie's through, so they're all doing terrifically well.

0:23:390:23:43

But Mimi is doing the best of all because she's already delivered two.

0:23:430:23:46

Just one more required

0:23:460:23:48

and Dray is wrestling with his cadaver there, isn't he, Rattus?

0:23:480:23:52

-WHISTLE BLOWS

-Look out! Here comes the policeman!

0:23:520:23:56

They have correctly hidden behind those tombstones

0:23:560:23:58

on hearing his approach. And here he is, Constable Savage.

0:23:580:24:02

He's not very good at policing, to be honest.

0:24:020:24:04

I have to say he is possibly the worst bungling bobby I've ever seen.

0:24:040:24:08

He's ignoring the bodies that are lying strewn in his path.

0:24:080:24:12

Well, he's from the Victorian age.

0:24:120:24:15

He's used to corpses littering the pavements. But I have to say

0:24:150:24:18

he had to step over that one. It was particularly poor policing.

0:24:180:24:22

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:24:220:24:23

They're back! They're back, Dave!

0:24:230:24:25

They certainly are and Mimi has just got this body to deliver now.

0:24:250:24:28

This is remarkable stuff! She's got him straight on the wheelbarrow!

0:24:280:24:32

But poor old Dray's having to wrestle with his.

0:24:320:24:34

Oh, that leg is at a horrible angle.

0:24:340:24:36

Natalie also in the background, working away as best she can.

0:24:370:24:41

That's a terrific reverse there from Mimi.

0:24:410:24:43

She's problem-solving terrifically well.

0:24:430:24:46

She's through! The last body's delivered, she just needs...

0:24:460:24:49

She just has to get down to the other end and through the railings!

0:24:490:24:53

She's going to be celebrating any second now. And she's done it!

0:24:530:24:58

It's a win for Mimi!

0:24:580:25:01

Very well played.

0:25:010:25:03

Mimi, help yourself to a Year Sphere. Your first!

0:25:030:25:07

She's gone for that one, well done.

0:25:070:25:10

So now it's time to count up those Year Spheres.

0:25:100:25:13

Remember that AD dates are added to your total,

0:25:130:25:17

and BC dates are subtracted from it.

0:25:170:25:20

It's the moment of truth.

0:25:200:25:22

So, Mimi, let's have a look in your Year Sphere.

0:25:220:25:26

What have you got for us?

0:25:260:25:27

Excellent, it's a good one. 1603 AD, the death of Queen Elizabeth I.

0:25:270:25:32

It's a good score. You could win with that.

0:25:320:25:36

Dray, let's see yours.

0:25:360:25:38

1483 AD, Richard III became King of England.

0:25:380:25:42

Let's have a look at the second one.

0:25:420:25:44

1769 AD, even better. Napoleon Bonaparte was born.

0:25:440:25:49

Let's have a look at this third one.

0:25:490:25:51

1337 AD, beginning of the Hundred Years War with France.

0:25:510:25:57

That is a very good total you've got there, Dray. 4,589 to beat.

0:25:570:26:04

But you can do this, Natalie.

0:26:040:26:05

You've got plenty of spheres to play with.

0:26:050:26:07

Let's have a look in that first one. There it is.

0:26:070:26:10

It's a small one but it's positive.

0:26:100:26:12

122 AD, Hadrian's Wall began to be built.

0:26:120:26:15

Let's have a look at this one.

0:26:150:26:17

1852 AD, that's a good one.

0:26:170:26:21

London's first flushing loo was opened to the public that year.

Let's have a look at the third.

0:26:240:26:26

1871 AD, bank holidays were invented.

0:26:260:26:31

It's extremely close. You need 745 AD or better to win.

0:26:310:26:36

Ooh! 753 BC!

0:26:380:26:42

Oh, Natalie's got her head in her hands. Oh, what a shame!

0:26:420:26:47

The city of Rome was founded that year

0:26:470:26:49

but that's no consolation, is it?

0:26:490:26:51

Natalie scored 3,092 in the end.

0:26:510:26:54

That means that today's winner is Dray

0:26:540:26:57

with a total of 4,589.

0:26:570:27:03

Congratulations. You get to take home a unique prize,

0:27:030:27:07

as in uniquely horrible,

0:27:070:27:09

because it's something that Rattus has fished out of the time sewer.

0:27:090:27:12

Today's prize is a cup.

0:27:120:27:14

That doesn't sound too bad.

0:27:140:27:15

Yes, a cup from the Stone Age.

0:27:150:27:18

Cavemen living in Somerset over 14,000 years ago

0:27:180:27:22

used to drink out of the top of human skulls.

0:27:220:27:25

-Rattus, this is an all-time low.

-I do my best.

0:27:250:27:28

Yeah, you do. There you go, Dray.

0:27:280:27:30

-I'm afraid it's a hollowed-out human skull.

-Thank you. Ugh.

0:27:300:27:33

Congratulations and apologies in equal measure.

0:27:330:27:36

It just remains for me to send our gallant runners-up,

0:27:360:27:39

Mimi and Natalie, back home down the time sewer.

0:27:390:27:42

Rather you than me. Off you go!

0:27:420:27:44

-Oh, no!

-Yes, I'm afraid it's going to get very unpleasant.

I've been Dave Lamb. Rattus has been well out of order.

-As always.

-You've been watching Gory Games. Goodbye.
