# Horrible Histories Gory...

0:00:200:00:22

# Games! #

0:00:220:00:24

Hello and welcome to Gory Games with me...

0:00:240:00:26

And me...

0:00:270:00:29

I think it's safe to say this is the only time you will see

0:00:300:00:33

a lamb and a rat and the rat will be the cuter one.

0:00:330:00:36

Well, that's highly debatable. Let's meet today's Horrible Historians.

0:00:360:00:41

Hi, my name's Katie and I'm from Watford.

0:00:410:00:43

Hello, Katie.

0:00:430:00:44

My name's Christopher and I'm from Hertfordshire.

0:00:440:00:46

Hello, Christopher.

0:00:460:00:48

I'm Eloise and I'm from London.

0:00:480:00:50

Hello, Eloise.

0:00:500:00:51

Welcome, everyone.

0:00:520:00:54

And you can play along at home too using the Gory Games app.

0:00:540:00:58

Check out the CBBC website.

0:00:580:01:00

Right, you lot

0:01:000:01:01

are playing to win Year Spheres.

0:01:010:01:04

At the end of the show, the person with the highest year score

0:01:040:01:07

will win a prize of my choosing that's so good,

0:01:070:01:10

I wanted to keep it myself.

0:01:100:01:12

And our winner will wish you had.

0:01:120:01:14

So, where better to start than with round one?

0:01:140:01:17

What's it about? Let's go over to the Gory Grid.

0:01:170:01:20

It's the Slimy Stuarts.

0:01:210:01:23

So, four questions on the Stuarts coming up.

0:01:230:01:26

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

0:01:260:01:30

And your four Stuart topics are...

0:01:300:01:32

Eloise, you get to pick first.

0:01:370:01:39

Food.

0:01:390:01:40

I'm afraid to say that is a prop question.

0:01:400:01:43

Prop question, prop question, prop question...

0:01:430:01:45

Oh, don't look like that, Dave.

0:01:450:01:47

I swear on the grave of my great-grandfather

0:01:470:01:49

that there are no booby traps in the cupboard today.

0:01:490:01:52

Well, thank you, Rattus.

0:01:520:01:53

Oh!

0:01:530:01:54

I thought you swore on the grave of your great-grandfather!

0:01:550:01:58

He doesn't have a grave,

0:01:580:02:00

he was a rat.

0:02:000:02:01

Yes, of course he was.

0:02:010:02:03

There's the prop, no thanks to Rattus.

0:02:030:02:06

And this is a plate of ambergris.

0:02:060:02:09

So, it was a dish much-loved by Charles II but what is ambergris?

0:02:090:02:14

Well, they're all disgusting but is it A, B or C?

0:02:210:02:25

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:02:250:02:28

Eloise and Christopher have agreed on A,

0:02:280:02:29

Katie thinks the answer is C.

0:02:290:02:32

The answer actually is...

0:02:320:02:34

A - regurgitated whale phlegm.

0:02:340:02:37

I mean, Charles II used to have it for breakfast.

0:02:370:02:40

If nobody else wants it, Dave, do you mind if I...

0:02:400:02:42

Let's just save it for later on, shall we?

0:02:420:02:45

Excellent, so that's a point for Eloise and a point for Christopher.

0:02:450:02:48

It's your turn to pick a topic.

0:02:480:02:50

Civil War.

0:02:500:02:52

At the Battle of Edgehill, during the Civil War,

0:02:520:02:54

what did Dr William Harvey pull over his legs to keep warm?

0:02:540:02:57

Show me your answers now, please.

0:03:080:03:10

Everyone in total agreement.

0:03:100:03:11

Are they all right or all wrong?

0:03:110:03:14

The answer is...

0:03:140:03:16

He pulled dead bodies over his legs to keep himself warm.

0:03:160:03:19

-I guess dead bodies do keep you warm.

-Do "vey"?

0:03:190:03:22

Yes, I suppose a duvet would have been preferable.

0:03:220:03:24

That's points all round.

0:03:240:03:26

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

0:03:270:03:29

Cures, please.

0:03:290:03:31

Which of these was a traditional Stuart cure for a fever?

0:03:310:03:34

Putting your feet in a bucket of cold tea,

0:03:340:03:37

rubbing your feet with the juice of ten bananas,

0:03:370:03:40

or cutting a pigeon in half and placing one half on each foot?

0:03:400:03:44

What do you think?

0:03:440:03:45

Show me your answers now, please.

0:03:480:03:50

Total agreement again.

0:03:500:03:52

What's the answer?

0:03:520:03:53

The answer is C. The sliced pigeon option, of course.

0:03:530:03:57

Cold tea or bananas, as if they would work. Ridiculous!

0:03:570:04:00

Well played, everyone.

0:04:000:04:01

One point each.

0:04:010:04:03

There's one category left.

0:04:030:04:05

And that, Rattus, is a question from your absolute favourite...

0:04:050:04:09

Death.

0:04:090:04:11

Hello!

0:04:130:04:15

What was famous Tudor scientist Francis Bacon's stupid death?

0:04:150:04:19

He choked on a bacon sandwich,

0:04:190:04:22

he got his scarf caught in the wheels of his carriage

0:04:220:04:26

or he caught pneumonia from stuffing a chicken with snow?

0:04:260:04:31

What do you think?

0:04:310:04:32

Let's have a look at your answers now, please.

0:04:340:04:37

Eloise has gone for B, Christopher and Katie have both gone for C.

0:04:370:04:40

Let's find out what the answer is.

0:04:400:04:42

The answer is...

0:04:420:04:43

C - he caught pneumonia from stuffing

0:04:430:04:46

a chicken with snow.

0:04:460:04:48

Sir Francis worked out how to preserve food by freezing it

0:04:480:04:51

but forgot to preserve himself!

0:04:510:04:53

HE LAUGHS

0:04:530:04:55

That's a point each

0:04:550:04:57

for Christopher and Katie, which means,

0:04:570:04:59

with a maximum score,

0:04:590:05:01

Christopher is the winner of the first Year Sphere.

0:05:010:05:04

And it's time for me to say -

0:05:040:05:05

all hail the Potty Pyramid!

0:05:050:05:10

Christopher, help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:05:140:05:17

I hope you've chosen carefully, Christopher,

0:05:180:05:20

because AD dates will be added to your total

0:05:200:05:23

and of course BC dates will be subtracted from it.

0:05:230:05:26

So, winning the Stuart quiz means that Christopher

0:05:260:05:29

is automatically through to play the Stuart Game

0:05:290:05:32

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

0:05:320:05:35

Let's find out, shall we?

0:05:350:05:36

It's an all play Silly Game.

0:05:400:05:43

So, that means it's off down the Time Sewer with the lot of you.

0:05:430:05:46

Dave, do you have any air freshener?

0:05:460:05:48

-I don't have any air freshener, no, I'm afraid.

-Stinky poo!

0:05:480:05:51

When Oliver Cromwell had his portrait painted

0:05:530:05:56

by Dutch artist Peter Lely,

0:05:560:05:58

he insisted that it was true in every detail,

0:05:580:06:01

with the blemishes, pimples, warts and all.

0:06:010:06:04

It's time to play...

0:06:040:06:05

Three portraits of Crommers, but where are his warts?

0:06:070:06:10

Your challenge - to fire warts onto your portrait.

0:06:100:06:13

The person with the most warts on their Cromwell's face,

0:06:130:06:16

in the time limit, wins the Year Sphere.

0:06:160:06:18

Pick up those paintbrushes as your time starts now.

0:06:180:06:21

BUZZER BLARES

0:06:210:06:24

Here we go! Now, they've got to fling warts onto Cromwell's face.

0:06:240:06:28

And here goes Katie.

0:06:280:06:30

-Bosh.

-She's done it!

-Oh, right in there!

0:06:300:06:32

-Well, that was a superb start, wasn't it, Rattus?

-It certainly was.

0:06:320:06:35

And that is a wart to the bottom right jowl of Cromwell's face.

0:06:350:06:40

Oh, and Eloise has just notched her first wart, too.

0:06:400:06:44

There's another one landed!

0:06:440:06:46

Katie's doing extremely well and Eloise has started equally well.

0:06:460:06:49

These girls are very good at flicking warts.

0:06:490:06:51

That's what we've learned.

0:06:510:06:53

That's a third for Eloise, brilliant flicking!

0:06:530:06:56

Oh, that's bad luck from Christopher.

0:06:560:06:58

Just falling a bit shy there.

0:06:580:07:00

All those warts are in front of Cromwell

0:07:030:07:05

in Christopher's lane.

0:07:050:07:06

He hasn't quite managed to land one, as yet.

0:07:060:07:09

Cromwell should be delighted, of course,

0:07:100:07:12

because he's looking much more attractive in that picture

0:07:120:07:14

but that wasn't what he wanted, was it, Rattus?

0:07:140:07:16

-No, he was proud of his warts.

-He loved his warts.

0:07:160:07:19

And here's Katie with another one.

0:07:210:07:23

Oh, Eloise has got another one too!

0:07:230:07:25

These girls really are very good.

0:07:250:07:27

Perhaps they've been playing lacrosse at school.

0:07:270:07:30

-I think that's what it is, Rattus.

-Quite right, Dave.

0:07:300:07:33

Boom! Another one for Eloise.

0:07:340:07:36

30 seconds remaining.

0:07:360:07:38

Ah, with the best will in the world, you have to say

0:07:380:07:40

Christopher's probably out of this, now. It's between the girls.

0:07:400:07:43

There's another one landed for Eloise, there.

0:07:430:07:46

It really is very close.

0:07:460:07:48

Dave, I have to admit, I am actually quite warty

0:07:480:07:50

but you wouldn't know it under all this fur.

0:07:500:07:52

Well, we know it now, don't we, Rattus? Thanks for that.

0:07:520:07:56

And it's even Stevens for Katie and Eloise, here.

0:07:560:07:58

Just one more wart might secure victory.

0:07:580:08:01

But there's only seconds remaining.

0:08:010:08:03

Oh, there's the first one for Christopher!

0:08:040:08:07

Oh, right on the buzzer it was!

0:08:070:08:08

And that's a very realistic picture for me.

0:08:080:08:10

I believe Cromwell might have looked like that.

0:08:100:08:12

He definitely didn't look like that.

0:08:120:08:15

Welcome back, everybody, back behind those podiums.

0:08:150:08:18

Well, I can tell you that in joint first with six each was

0:08:180:08:21

Eloise and Katie.

0:08:210:08:23

So that means you get one Year Sphere each.

0:08:230:08:25

So, help yourself, please.

0:08:250:08:27

Right. Round two.

0:08:300:08:32

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

0:08:320:08:35

It's the Nasty Knights.

0:08:380:08:39

Four questions again and your four all-important knight topics are...

0:08:410:08:45

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

0:08:500:08:52

-What'll you have?

-Crossbows, please.

0:08:520:08:55

True or false - the crossbow was banned by the Church in 1139?

0:08:550:09:00

So, the crossbow was banned by the Church in 1139.

0:09:000:09:03

Is that true or false?

0:09:030:09:05

Let's see your answers, please.

0:09:050:09:07

Everybody thinks it's false. What's the answer?

0:09:070:09:09

It's true.

0:09:090:09:10

A crossbow bolt could go clean through a knight and kill him.

0:09:100:09:13

The Church thought it was unfair that an untrained peasant could

0:09:130:09:16

kill a highly trained knight

0:09:160:09:18

and so did us knights.

0:09:180:09:20

No points at the start of that round.

0:09:200:09:22

-Katie, it's your turn to pick next.

-Squires, please.

0:09:220:09:24

That is a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:09:240:09:28

True or false - after a heavy day on the battlefield, a squire only had

0:09:280:09:33

to clean the mud and blood off the outside of a knight's armour?

0:09:330:09:37

So, after a heavy day on the battlefield, a squire only had to

0:09:370:09:41

clean the mud and blood off the outside of a knight's armour?

0:09:410:09:44

Is that true or false?

0:09:440:09:45

Eloise and Christopher have agreed on true,

0:09:460:09:48

Katie, out on her own there, with false. What's the answer, Rattus?

0:09:480:09:53

It's false.

0:09:530:09:54

They had to clean the inside as well as the outside

0:09:540:09:56

and let's just say, knights didn't get a toilet break during battle.

0:09:560:10:00

Oh, no, the armour was like a big, stinking, metal nappy.

0:10:000:10:03

-Wee and poo everywhere! It was...

-All right, Rattus Rattus,

0:10:030:10:06

all right, we get the picture.

0:10:060:10:08

Well done, Katie. Eloise, it's your turn to pick a topic.

0:10:100:10:13

Chivalry.

0:10:130:10:15

Is this true or false?

0:10:150:10:17

Is that true or is that false? Let's see your answers.

0:10:220:10:25

Eloise and Christopher agreeing again, this time with true,

0:10:270:10:29

Katie thinks that's false. Let's find out the actual answer.

0:10:290:10:34

It's true.

0:10:340:10:35

Well, that's levelled it all up.

0:10:350:10:37

One question left in this round.

0:10:370:10:40

True or false -

0:10:400:10:42

a melee was a rousing song that knights would sing before battle?

0:10:420:10:46

A rousing song that knights would sing before a battle?

0:10:460:10:49

Is that true or is that false?

0:10:490:10:50

Eloise and Christopher, spookily agreeing with each other again.

0:10:510:10:55

Katie thinks that's true. Let's find out what the answer is.

0:10:550:10:58

It's false.

0:10:580:11:00

Tournaments would often feature a melee which was basically

0:11:000:11:02

lots of knights fighting.

0:11:020:11:05

Nobody was supposed to actually get injured but, what can I say,

0:11:050:11:08

accidents happen!

0:11:080:11:10

Ow! Ow.

0:11:100:11:13

Congratulations, Eloise and Christopher,

0:11:130:11:15

that means that you have tied that round.

0:11:150:11:17

Katie, just for now,

0:11:170:11:19

you are history as we go into a tie-breaker situation.

0:11:190:11:23

Beginning with the letter F,

0:11:260:11:27

in which country was the famous Battle of Agincourt?

0:11:270:11:30

-Christopher?

-France.

0:11:300:11:31

France is the right answer. Well done, Christopher.

0:11:310:11:33

Help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:11:330:11:36

And let's hope it's not a Stone Age one...

0:11:360:11:39

which can really mess up your score.

0:11:390:11:42

OK, Christopher, you're through to play the Knight's Game

0:11:420:11:44

but will it be just you or will the others get to play too?

0:11:440:11:47

Let's find out.

0:11:470:11:48

It's a single player game

0:11:520:11:54

and I hope you're feeling brave as it's a Stupid Death Game.

0:11:540:11:59

Get yourself down the Time Sewer, it's safer in there.

0:12:010:12:04

So, time now for a game that requires bravery, skill,

0:12:070:12:10

cunning and good balance.

0:12:100:12:13

But mainly just good balance.

0:12:130:12:14

It's time to play...

0:12:140:12:16

What's this game about, Death?

0:12:170:12:19

Little story here from the archive, the poo-related death archive,

0:12:190:12:24

which is actually the largest room in my house, after my scythe collection.

0:12:240:12:28

Anyway, in 1291,

0:12:280:12:30

a band of Crusaders raided a Saracen camp under cover of darkness

0:12:300:12:34

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

0:12:340:12:37

and drowned in poo! HE LAUGHS

0:12:370:12:41

The Crusader became a "Poosader"!

0:12:410:12:43

It works.

0:12:440:12:46

Anyway, your challenge is to get from one side of the Saracen camp

0:12:460:12:49

to the other and rescue the fallen knight from the poopy pit

0:12:490:12:53

without touching any tent ropes.

0:12:530:12:55

Snag a rope three times and you'll wake the Saracen and it's game over.

0:12:550:13:00

Your time starts...

0:13:010:13:04

now!

0:13:040:13:05

And here we go. Christopher enters the first web of tent ropes.

0:13:050:13:09

Of course, Rattus, each rope fitted with a bell.

0:13:090:13:13

Three rings and the game's over.

0:13:130:13:15

He's keeping an eye on the Saracen, I don't blame him.

0:13:150:13:18

He did seem to wiggle a rope there but I think he got away with it,

0:13:180:13:20

no bell's rung yet. Oh, he's through.

0:13:200:13:22

He's doing extremely well.

0:13:220:13:24

Now then, on to the second web. This one's a bit harder.

0:13:240:13:26

It's a real test of balance. Can he do it?

0:13:260:13:29

SARACEN SNORTS

0:13:290:13:31

Oh! Shush, shush! The Saracen is stirring.

0:13:310:13:35

Oh! He's rung a bell there!

0:13:350:13:37

That's his first. He's only got two more.

0:13:370:13:40

He's only allowed two more rings.

0:13:400:13:41

Christopher freezes there to avoid further detection.

0:13:410:13:44

On to his final web, now.

0:13:440:13:46

He's got to be so careful.

0:13:460:13:48

Taking a deep breath, there.

0:13:480:13:49

Oh, that's a bell going off.

0:13:490:13:52

The Saracen's stirring.

0:13:520:13:54

Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock! Your time is running out.

0:13:540:13:57

I really wish Death wouldn't do that. Christopher's through!

0:13:590:14:03

Christopher's through and now he's trying to rescue

0:14:030:14:05

his colleague from the cesspit. He's just got to yank him...

0:14:050:14:08

-He's running out of time, Rattus.

-Yank him!

0:14:080:14:10

Well, I don't know what the Saracens were eating

0:14:100:14:12

but that poo is proving to be extraordinarily sticky.

0:14:120:14:16

-Well, he's done it.

-He's done it!

0:14:160:14:18

Christopher has plucked the Crusader out of the poo hole.

0:14:180:14:22

Let's hope he doesn't have to give him mouth-to-mouth.

0:14:220:14:25

Well done indeed, Christopher.

0:14:250:14:27

Help yourself to a Year Sphere, straightaway.

0:14:270:14:30

Is that a good choice? We'll find out later.

0:14:300:14:33

Right, round three

0:14:330:14:35

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

0:14:350:14:37

It's the Measly Middle Ages.

0:14:390:14:42

Four questions, as always, and here are your four Middle Ages topics...

0:14:420:14:46

So, Katie, it's your turn to pick, this time. What would you like?

0:14:510:14:55

Edward III, please.

0:14:550:14:57

The wedding of King Edward III was rather unusual.

0:14:570:15:01

Was it because it took place in a...

0:15:010:15:03

What do you think?

0:15:090:15:10

Let's see your answers, now, please.

0:15:130:15:15

Well, everybody thinks that's B.

0:15:150:15:17

Let's find out if it is.

0:15:170:15:19

The answer is...

0:15:190:15:21

The wedding was held in York Minster

0:15:210:15:22

which had no roof at the time

0:15:220:15:24

and it was snowing.

0:15:240:15:26

Snowing on the bride.

0:15:260:15:28

Well, I guess that must have saved on confetti.

0:15:280:15:30

What's spaghetti got to do with this?

0:15:300:15:32

Slight misunderstanding.

0:15:320:15:33

Well done, everybody. Eloise, it's your turn to pick next.

0:15:330:15:36

Food.

0:15:360:15:38

In the Middle Ages, the Church said,

0:15:380:15:40

"You shouldn't eat meat on a Friday." Although fish was allowed.

0:15:400:15:44

So, to get around the rule, which of these did people eat?

0:15:440:15:48

Was it...

0:15:540:15:55

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:15:590:16:01

Slight disagreement this time.

0:16:010:16:03

Katie thinks it's A, Eloise and Christopher think it's B.

0:16:030:16:06

What's the actual answer?

0:16:060:16:07

The answer is...

0:16:070:16:09

Some people pointed out that beavers swam a lot,

0:16:090:16:12

and had a weird tail so they were sort of fish.

0:16:120:16:15

Just a very, very meaty fish. They're clever, ain't they?

0:16:150:16:19

No points for that question but all still to play for.

0:16:190:16:22

-Christopher, what would you like?

-Sport, please.

0:16:220:16:25

That is a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:16:250:16:28

Oh, this is only the best question ever!

0:16:280:16:31

Oh, Rattus. So, which is it?

0:16:400:16:42

Eloise and Christopher think the answer's A, Katie thinks it's C.

0:16:440:16:49

Let's find out what it actually is.

0:16:490:16:50

The answer is...

0:16:500:16:52

As in, aim for the butt. No, not my butt, THE butt.

0:16:540:16:59

That's a point for Eloise and a point for Christopher.

0:16:590:17:01

Everyone still in it this round.

0:17:010:17:03

With one question left, it's a question on cures.

0:17:030:17:05

It's a right tricky one, this.

0:17:050:17:08

Urgh. Is it A, B or C?

0:17:190:17:23

Show me those answers now, please.

0:17:230:17:25

Eloise and Christopher again agreeing. Katie has gone for C.

0:17:250:17:29

The answer is...

0:17:290:17:31

Coincidentally, squashed crickets and beetles is one of my favourite meals.

0:17:330:17:37

Each to their own.

0:17:370:17:39

Bad luck, Katie.

0:17:390:17:41

That means that for now you are history but Eloise and Christopher,

0:17:410:17:45

we're in another tie-break situation.

0:17:450:17:47

Beginning with the letter R, what was the first name

0:17:470:17:50

of the English king nicknamed the Lionheart? Eloise?

0:17:500:17:53

-Richard.

-Richard is absolutely right. Well done, Eloise.

0:17:530:17:57

Help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:17:570:17:59

Eloise, you won the Middle Ages quiz

0:18:040:18:06

so you're through to play the Middle Ages Game

0:18:060:18:08

but will you be playing alone or will the others be joining you?

0:18:080:18:11

Let's find out.

0:18:110:18:13

It's an all play Gory Game. Yes!

0:18:160:18:20

So, everybody, get down that Time Sewer.

0:18:200:18:23

Well done, Katie.

0:18:230:18:24

Funerals always bring a tear to the eye

0:18:270:18:29

but not usually because of all the smoke.

0:18:290:18:32

At William the Conqueror's funeral,

0:18:320:18:34

his servants stole his treasure and the church burned down.

0:18:340:18:37

It's time to play...

0:18:370:18:38

You are William's servants

0:18:400:18:41

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

0:18:410:18:44

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

0:18:440:18:47

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

0:18:470:18:51

Whoever collects the most pieces wins the Year Sphere

0:18:510:18:54

and your time starts...

0:18:540:18:55

now.

0:18:550:18:57

And they're off.

0:18:570:18:58

Well, that's just come off in Eloise's hand.

0:19:000:19:02

That was a lucky break for her. She's taken that very, very quickly.

0:19:020:19:05

Eloise straight into the lead, there.

0:19:050:19:08

But not for long!

0:19:080:19:10

There's one for Christopher and for Katie.

0:19:100:19:12

And there's Christopher working away at a candlestick.

0:19:120:19:14

And they're all level pegging now.

0:19:140:19:16

The crucial thing here, I can't emphasise it enough, Rattus,

0:19:160:19:19

is that they have to use the correctly colour-coded treasure.

0:19:190:19:23

Absolutely right, Dave.

0:19:230:19:25

There's no point in spending a lot of time unscrewing treasure

0:19:250:19:29

that isn't actually yours to steal.

0:19:290:19:31

Yes, whereas in a normal burglary, it wouldn't matter,

0:19:310:19:33

just grab whatever you can

0:19:330:19:35

and get out as quickly as you can before the police arrive...

0:19:350:19:38

I've...I've heard.

0:19:380:19:39

Something we know but our contestants hopefully don't

0:19:420:19:44

is that William's body was so bloated and rotten at his funeral

0:19:440:19:47

that it exploded.

0:19:470:19:49

-Oh!

-Oh!

-What was I just telling you?

0:19:490:19:51

-Oh, prophetic, Dave.

-Prophetic indeed.

0:19:510:19:54

They barely looked up from their work, did they, Rattus?

0:19:560:19:58

Maybe half a step backwards but they were straight back into it.

0:19:580:20:02

So, Katie's in the lead with five items.

0:20:030:20:05

She really is light fingered, isn't she, that one?

0:20:050:20:07

Christopher's not far behind.

0:20:070:20:09

Of course, it goes without saying that you shouldn't ever steal,

0:20:100:20:13

not even from a dead tyrant,

0:20:130:20:14

but it does make a great game, doesn't it, Rattus?

0:20:140:20:16

It certainly does, Dave.

0:20:160:20:18

Oh, hang on. Oh, no, Eloise, that candlestick won't count,

0:20:180:20:21

it's the wrong colour. That's one of Christopher's!

0:20:210:20:24

30 seconds remaining.

0:20:240:20:26

Time is running out to try and nab those last few treasures.

0:20:260:20:29

Dave, do you think they'll ever make thieving an Olympic sport?

0:20:310:20:34

Well, wouldn't the gold medal just get stolen?

0:20:340:20:36

Eloise gets the right colour this time

0:20:360:20:39

but will she be able to catch the others?

0:20:390:20:41

Hello, is that smoke I see?

0:20:410:20:43

This is what actually happened

0:20:430:20:45

during William the Conqueror's funeral. The place burnt down.

0:20:450:20:48

-Fire, everything's on fire. It's burning!

-Someone call 999!

0:20:480:20:52

Actually, don't bother, it's all over.

0:20:520:20:54

Time's up.

0:20:540:20:55

And that last piece from Eloise won't count.

0:20:550:20:58

Welcome back, everybody.

0:20:580:21:00

Very well played. That was very, very close.

0:21:000:21:03

I can tell you that in third place, with four pieces of treasure,

0:21:030:21:09

was Eloise.

0:21:090:21:11

But in joint first place, with five pieces each,

0:21:110:21:13

was Katie and Christopher. So, help yourself, please.

0:21:130:21:16

I don't think anyone predicted you were going to choose that one.

0:21:180:21:21

And, Christopher, help yourself, please.

0:21:210:21:23

Excellent stuff.

0:21:230:21:24

It's the final round and that means it's over to the Gory Grid

0:21:240:21:27

one last time to find out what we've got.

0:21:270:21:29

It's the Vile Victorians. Good day.

0:21:310:21:33

No quirky quiz in our final round.

0:21:340:21:36

It's straight to our big, all play game and it is well scary.

0:21:360:21:41

So, everybody, back down that Time Sewer with the lot of you.

0:21:410:21:44

When Queen Victoria was just a child,

0:21:500:21:52

grave robbing was a common crime.

0:21:520:21:54

The bodies were sold to surgeons who wanted to use them

0:21:540:21:57

to find out more about how the human body works.

0:21:570:21:59

It is time to play...

0:21:590:22:01

Your vile Victorian challenge is to steal

0:22:030:22:05

three corpses from the graveyard.

0:22:050:22:07

Get them through the railings, onto the carts, find the key

0:22:070:22:10

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

0:22:100:22:13

-If you hear this noise...

-WHISTLE BLOWS

0:22:130:22:16

..then you must rush back to the cemetery and hide

0:22:160:22:18

so the policeman doesn't spot you.

0:22:180:22:20

A second whistle means you can go again.

0:22:200:22:23

The first person to get all their bodies to the surgeon's table

0:22:230:22:26

and grab the dodgy money is the winner.

0:22:260:22:28

In three, two, one...

0:22:280:22:30

BUZZER BLARES

0:22:300:22:32

And they're off. Here we go and Christopher is first to show, there.

0:22:320:22:36

Now, they're all trying to push their bodies through

0:22:360:22:39

rather than pull them through.

0:22:390:22:40

That's an interesting tactic, isn't it?

0:22:400:22:42

Certainly, that's the way to move a corpse, Dave,

0:22:420:22:45

by pushing, not pulling.

0:22:450:22:46

Christopher's lost a body off his trolley, there,

0:22:460:22:48

and the trolley's misbehaving.

0:22:480:22:50

-That's a wobbly wheel, isn't it, Rattus?

-A wobbly trolley.

0:22:500:22:52

-Yeah, you organised that wobbly wheel, I believe.

-Certainly did.

0:22:520:22:55

Look at this - Katie is already at the lock.

0:22:550:22:58

And Katie is through! That's the first corpse ready to be dissected.

0:23:000:23:04

Makes her way back now. Look at the other two.

0:23:040:23:07

They're still struggling with their locks.

0:23:070:23:09

Oh, there's the first cobweb.

0:23:090:23:11

Katie is now back through the railings and she's got a golfer.

0:23:110:23:14

How strange that the golfer was buried in his golf trousers, Rattus.

0:23:140:23:18

Oh, now, Eloise is finally through with her first corpse and, yes,

0:23:180:23:21

Christopher is not far behind but Katie is miles ahead.

0:23:210:23:25

Second corpse nearly ready for the dodgy surgeon.

0:23:250:23:27

There we go. Oh, and there's Christopher's first corpse.

0:23:290:23:33

Oh, and Eloise is literally ramming that body

0:23:330:23:36

through the railings, there. No respect for the dead.

0:23:360:23:39

-WHISTLE BLOWS

-And there's the whistle.

0:23:390:23:41

Now, Rattus, this means that they've got to hide because

0:23:410:23:44

here comes the policeman.

0:23:440:23:45

The most unobservant policeman in Britain is now missing corpses.

0:23:450:23:49

He's not seeing grave robbers and he is going to go back

0:23:490:23:52

to his super and report that everything was fine.

0:23:520:23:54

Shoddy policing! Slipshod, bad advert for the police force.

0:23:540:23:58

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:23:580:24:00

But never mind that because here come the contestants again.

0:24:000:24:02

Eloise and Christopher really need to get a move on

0:24:020:24:05

if they're going to catch Katie.

0:24:050:24:06

Come on, Christopher!

0:24:060:24:07

These are the hard yards. This is were the training pays off.

0:24:070:24:10

Eloise has number two,

0:24:100:24:11

Katie is on the last corpse.

0:24:110:24:13

She's going to head back down. All she's got to do is

0:24:130:24:15

take the dodgy money.

0:24:150:24:17

She's got the dodgy money.

0:24:170:24:18

She just needs to get back through that fence.

0:24:180:24:20

She's there! And Katie has successfully sold some corpses

0:24:200:24:23

to a naughty surgeon.

0:24:230:24:26

Welcome back, everybody. Well played.

0:24:260:24:29

Help yourself, Katie.

0:24:290:24:31

A final Year Sphere.

0:24:310:24:34

She's gone for that one.

0:24:340:24:36

Now, it is time to count up those Year Spheres.

0:24:370:24:40

And remember, AD dates are added to your total

0:24:400:24:43

and BC dates are subtracted from it.

0:24:430:24:47

It's the moment of truth.

0:24:470:24:49

OK, Eloise, let's open up that first one.

0:24:490:24:53

It's a good start.

0:24:530:24:55

The beginning of the Hundred Years War with France, that year.

0:24:550:24:58

Let's have a look at your second one, this could be crucial.

0:24:580:25:01

Oh, it's not so good.

0:25:010:25:02

The first ever ancient Olympics was that year.

0:25:050:25:08

That leaves you, Eloise, with a total of 561.

0:25:080:25:13

So that's what you've got to try and beat, Christopher.

0:25:130:25:15

Let's have a look at your first sphere.

0:25:150:25:17

Oh, it's a good one.

0:25:170:25:20

When women got the right to vote in the UK.

0:25:200:25:23

Let's have a look at the second one.

0:25:230:25:26

The birth of William Shakespeare, that year.

0:25:280:25:30

The third one.

0:25:300:25:31

The Battle of Waterloo. Let's look at the last one.

0:25:340:25:36

Hadrian's Wall began to be built that year.

0:25:410:25:43

So that is an excellent total you've got there, Christopher.

0:25:430:25:46

Now, Katie, let's see if you can beat that.

0:25:490:25:52

Open that first one, please.

0:25:520:25:55

The death of William II. A good start.

0:25:560:25:59

Let's have a look at the second one.

0:25:590:26:01

Roman Emperor Claudius invaded Britain, that might not be enough.

0:26:020:26:05

Let's have a look at the third one.

0:26:050:26:07

Oh, and it's 55 BC.

0:26:090:26:11

Julius Caesar invaded Britain that year.

0:26:110:26:14

Katie has scored 1,088 which means that today's winner is

0:26:140:26:20

-Christopher.

-Thank you.

0:26:200:26:22

And how could we send you home without a truly fantastic prize?

0:26:220:26:27

Well, like this, because you'll be getting some

0:26:270:26:30

old rubbish that he's found in the Time Sewer.

0:26:300:26:32

Prepare to eat your words, my friend,

0:26:320:26:34

because today's prize really is fantastic.

0:26:340:26:38

It's an actual crown.

0:26:380:26:40

What, a genuine crown as worn by an actual king?

0:26:400:26:44

Even better, Dave, it's the crown that was presented

0:26:440:26:48

to the champion at Ancient Greece's Isthmian Games, no less.

0:26:480:26:52

Wow!

0:26:520:26:53

It's a crown of celery!

Brilliant.

0:26:560:26:57

Well, Christopher, that is your prize. Do you have a rabbit at home?

0:26:570:27:01

No, but I like it anyway.

0:27:010:27:03

Well done, Christopher, superb work

0:27:030:27:05

and well done also to our gallant runners-up, Eloise and Katie,

0:27:050:27:09

who've won the chance to pick up a wide variety of rotting vegetation

0:27:090:27:12

because we're going to flush them down the Time Sewers.

0:27:120:27:15

I'm sorry about this. Off you go!

0:27:150:27:18

If you want to play along at home next time,

don't forget to download the Gory Games app.

Eloise, Christopher and Katie compete to win year spheres in a series of games, including Knight Fall and Grave Robbers. Definitely not for the faint-hearted.
