-Five minutes, Mr Lamb.

-Thank you.

0:00:020:00:05

Five minutes, Rattus.

0:00:050:00:06

Thank you.

0:00:060:00:07

# If mummies, rats and fleas ain't your thing

0:00:100:00:13

# And you don't like the sound of an exploding king

0:00:130:00:16

# If you're easily scared and don't laugh at poo

0:00:160:00:19

# Better turn off This show ain't for you

0:00:190:00:22

# Still watching? Then let's test your brains

# Horrible Histories Gory...

0:00:280:00:30

# ..Games! #

0:00:310:00:32

Hello, and welcome to Gory Games

0:00:320:00:34

with me, Dave Lamb.

0:00:340:00:35

And me, Rattus Rattus.

0:00:350:00:38

Rattus, when was the last time you washed?

0:00:380:00:41

I had a shower just this morning.

0:00:410:00:42

Oh, yeah? In the sewer presumably?

0:00:420:00:45

Obviously.

0:00:450:00:46

Oh, dear, oh, dear. Jeff.

0:00:460:00:48

Eurgh!

0:00:480:00:49

-Sorry about that, Jeff.

-My new shirt.

0:00:490:00:51

It's probably going to stain a little bit, that.

0:00:510:00:53

OK, let's crack on and meet our Horrible Historians.

0:00:530:00:57

My name's Calla and I'm from Glasgow.

0:00:580:01:00

Hello, Calla.

0:01:000:01:01

My name's Jay and I'm from Portsmouth.

0:01:010:01:03

Hello, Jay.

0:01:030:01:05

Hi, I'm Ellie and I'm from Northwich.

0:01:050:01:07

Hello, Ellie.

0:01:070:01:10

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

0:01:100:01:13

using the Gory Games app.

0:01:130:01:15

And if you haven't got it yet, check out the CBBC website.

0:01:150:01:18

OK, you are all playing to win Year Spheres.

0:01:180:01:21

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

0:01:210:01:25

will win a prize, as selected by Rattus.

0:01:250:01:27

Oh, yes, and it's a really good one, too. Ha!

0:01:270:01:30

So, on with the show, and to find out what our first round

0:01:300:01:33

is all about, it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:01:330:01:36

It's the Slimy Stuarts.

0:01:370:01:39

So, four questions on Stuarts coming up.

0:01:390:01:42

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

0:01:420:01:47

And your four Stuart topics are...

0:01:470:01:49

So, Ellie, you get to pick first in this opening round,

0:01:550:01:57

-what would you like?

-Can I have Charles II, please?

0:01:570:02:00

That is a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:02:000:02:03

True or false?

0:02:030:02:05

Charles II used to rub powdered poodle onto his skin.

0:02:050:02:10

Charles II used to rub powdered poodle onto his skin.

0:02:100:02:13

Is that true or is that false? Let's have your answers, please.

0:02:130:02:17

All right, Calla and Jay agreeing with true, Ellie has gone for false.

0:02:180:02:22

Rattus, what's the correct answer?

0:02:220:02:24

It's...false.

0:02:240:02:26

But he did rub ancient Egyptian mummy dust onto his skin.

0:02:260:02:31

He believed it would keep him strong and wise.

0:02:310:02:34

Oh, yes, rubbing dead old Egyptian all over your skin,

0:02:340:02:37

very wise, that is.

0:02:370:02:39

Well done, Ellie, you're off the mark. Superb start.

0:02:390:02:42

Jay, your turn to pick a category, what would you like?

0:02:420:02:44

Cures, please.

0:02:440:02:47

True or false?

0:02:470:02:48

If you were bleeding heavily,

0:02:480:02:50

a Stuart cure was to write Jennifer on your left thumb.

0:02:500:02:54

Is that true or is that false?

0:02:540:02:57

OK, Ellie and Jay have gone for true, Calla has gone for false.

0:02:590:03:03

Let's find out what the answer is.

0:03:030:03:05

It's false. Obviously that wouldn't work.

0:03:050:03:08

You have to write Veronica.

0:03:080:03:10

Of course you did, Veronica much more sensible than Jennifer.

0:03:110:03:15

Well done, Calla, that's a point for you.

0:03:150:03:17

OK, and it's your turn to pick a category, what would you like?

0:03:170:03:21

Charles I, please.

0:03:210:03:22

True or false?

0:03:230:03:25

When Charles I was a young prince, if he misbehaved in lessons,

0:03:250:03:29

he was given a severe whipping.

0:03:290:03:31

Ouch! What do you think, true or false?

0:03:310:03:34

Everyone's gone for true, are they all right or wrong?

0:03:360:03:40

It's false.

0:03:400:03:41

The prince was not allowed to be beaten

0:03:410:03:43

so he had a whipping boy called Will Marry.

0:03:430:03:45

If Charles misbehaved, the teachers beat his friend instead.

0:03:450:03:48

Imagine if I had a whipping boy, eh?

0:03:500:03:52

I'd be even more badly behaved.

0:03:520:03:54

Yes, to be honest, I'm not sure that's possible.

0:03:540:03:56

But you're all still in this round,

0:03:560:03:58

the final question of which is on Moliere.

0:03:580:04:01

Oh, good news, Rattus. This is a question from Death!

0:04:010:04:06

Oh, no, no, no, no, no!

0:04:060:04:08

True or false?

0:04:100:04:11

The famous French actor and playwright Moliere

0:04:110:04:14

had a stupid death on stage while playing the role of a doctor.

0:04:140:04:18

Moliere had a stupid death on stage while playing the role of a doctor.

0:04:180:04:22

Is that true or false? Let's see those answers, please.

0:04:220:04:25

Everyone's gone for true. Death, are they all right or all wrong?

0:04:250:04:29

It's false.

0:04:290:04:31

Moliere was actually playing the part of a hypochondriac,

0:04:310:04:34

someone who thinks they're ill when they're not.

0:04:340:04:37

But turns out he actually was ill!

0:04:370:04:39

He died! Ha-ha! Very funny!

0:04:390:04:42

Actually, I feel like death,

0:04:420:04:44

which is fine, because I am Death!

0:04:440:04:46

Keep up!

0:04:460:04:48

No points in that one and that means the score is one to Ellie,

0:04:480:04:52

one to Calla and none for Jay, so just for the moment,

0:04:520:04:55

Jay, you are history.

0:04:550:04:56

The two girls are going into a tie breaker.

0:04:560:05:00

Beginning with the letter B, which fruit was new

0:05:000:05:03

and exciting in Stuart... Ellie.

0:05:030:05:05

Banana.

0:05:050:05:06

Banana is absolutely right.

0:05:060:05:08

Congratulations, Ellie, you have won the quiz.

0:05:080:05:11

Which means it's time for you to choose your Year Sphere,

0:05:110:05:13

and it's time for me to say,

0:05:130:05:15

"all hail the potty pyramid".

0:05:150:05:19

Gasp at its pointiness.

0:05:190:05:22

Ellie, help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:05:260:05:29

Tremendous work.

0:05:340:05:35

Winning the Stuart quiz means that Ellie is automatically through

0:05:360:05:40

to play the Stuart game.

0:05:400:05:42

But will she be alone, or will everyone else get to play?

0:05:420:05:45

Let's find out.

0:05:450:05:47

It's an all-play silly game.

0:05:500:05:53

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

0:05:530:05:57

Go on, Calla, lead us off.

0:05:570:05:59

-Bye.

-Bye.

0:05:590:06:02

Yes, it does stink rather badly.

0:06:020:06:04

When Oliver Cromwell had his portrait painted

0:06:050:06:08

by Dutch artist Peter Lely, he insisted it be truthful,

0:06:080:06:12

complete with blemishes, pimples, warts and all.

0:06:120:06:15

It's time to play...

0:06:150:06:16

Three portraits of Oliver Cromwell but something is missing.

0:06:190:06:22

Where are his warts? Your challenge, to fire warts onto your portraits.

0:06:220:06:27

The person with the most warts on Cromwell's face

0:06:270:06:30

in the time limit wins the Year Sphere.

0:06:300:06:32

So pick up those paintbrushes, as your time starts now.

0:06:320:06:36

HORN BLOWS

0:06:360:06:39

And away they go.

0:06:390:06:41

One landing instantly there from Calla, tremendous first effort.

0:06:410:06:45

Not quite such an explosive start from Jay and Ellie

0:06:470:06:50

but they're doing nicely, too.

0:06:500:06:52

Ahh, Calla, oh, it's a second one.

0:06:520:06:54

She really knows how to flick a wart.

0:06:540:06:57

Goodness knows where she's learned to do that.

0:06:570:06:59

Jay now sizing one up.

0:06:590:07:01

And he's off the mark.

0:07:010:07:03

Have you ever had any warts, Rattus?

0:07:030:07:05

Mainly on my bottom, Dave.

0:07:050:07:06

OK, I wish I hadn't asked that question.

0:07:060:07:09

Right on the nose thankfully from Ellie,

0:07:090:07:11

it's red nose day for Cromwell!

0:07:110:07:13

Oliver Cromwell of course also had moles but we thought,

0:07:130:07:16

little bit tricky to flick moles, er...

0:07:160:07:18

They also squeak very loudly when they hit things.

0:07:180:07:21

They do, when they impact they make an awful racket, don't they, Rattus?

0:07:210:07:25

Yeah. Yeah, that's what it sounds like, it's awful,

0:07:250:07:28

absolutely horrific to listen to.

0:07:280:07:30

Ellie is coming from nowhere here, she's up to three, they're level.

0:07:300:07:34

Can either of them edge ahead? That's the million-dollar question.

0:07:340:07:37

Can anyone break the deadlock here?

0:07:370:07:39

Yes, Ellie gets her fourth.

0:07:390:07:41

Dave, if you got someone to paint a portrait of your face,

0:07:410:07:43

without all your blemishes, would there be anything left to paint?

0:07:430:07:47

Just asking, just asking!

0:07:470:07:50

Not answering, not answering.

0:07:500:07:52

And Ellie leads with five.

0:07:520:07:54

Can the others catch up?

0:07:540:07:56

30 seconds remaining.

0:07:560:07:58

Cromwell's death mask, a wax mould made of his face when he died,

0:07:580:08:01

shows that the portrait Peter Lely painted was incredibly accurate.

0:08:010:08:05

I think you mean dead accurate.

0:08:050:08:07

Ho-ho! I think I do.

0:08:070:08:09

And look at Ellie here, her technique is remarkable.

0:08:090:08:12

Her Cromwell is utterly covered in warts.

0:08:120:08:14

But Calla and Jay are finding their form in these last few seconds,

0:08:140:08:17

this is very exciting.

0:08:170:08:20

It's an out-and-out fight here between the girls.

0:08:200:08:22

Jay, I'm afraid, is not really going to threaten from here,

0:08:220:08:25

but which of the girls will do it?

0:08:250:08:27

Time's up.

0:08:270:08:28

Oh, it was so close, but Ellie's bagged herself a Year Sphere.

0:08:280:08:31

Very good effort.

0:08:330:08:34

Ellie, you can go straight to get yourself another Year Sphere.

0:08:340:08:37

Pick carefully though because the AD dates will be added

0:08:370:08:39

to your total score, BC dates will be taken away from it.

0:08:390:08:42

Have you flung warts at anyone before?

0:08:420:08:44

No. I've tried to though.

0:08:440:08:46

And how were you with the paddle, Calla, with the flicking action?

0:08:460:08:50

Did you find it easy?

0:08:500:08:51

It starts off quite hard but then it gets easier.

0:08:510:08:55

Right, well, it was very close between you two girls,

0:08:550:08:58

but you just came through, Ellie, well done.

0:08:580:09:00

Round two, and to find out what's up next,

0:09:000:09:02

it's back over to the Gory Grid.

0:09:020:09:04

It's the Measly Middle Ages.

0:09:060:09:09

Four questions again and your four topics to choose from are...

0:09:090:09:14

So, Jay, it's your turn to pick first this time, what will you have?

0:09:190:09:22

Crime, please.

0:09:220:09:24

It's a right tricky one, this.

0:09:240:09:26

If you committed a crime in the Middle Ages,

0:09:260:09:29

how long were you allowed to hide in a church?

0:09:290:09:31

Was it...

0:09:310:09:34

Let's see an answer now, please.

0:09:420:09:44

Ellie and Jay agreeing on B, Calla has gone with A.

0:09:440:09:47

What's the answer?

0:09:470:09:48

The answer is B.

0:09:480:09:51

You could claim sanctuary in a church for up to 40 days,

0:09:510:09:54

and no-one was allowed to arrest you.

0:09:540:09:56

So the answer was B, Ellie and Jay off the mark in this round.

0:09:560:10:00

But it is your turn to pick a topic, Calla.

0:10:000:10:02

Jobs, please.

0:10:020:10:04

That is a prop question.

0:10:040:10:07

HE SIGHS

0:10:070:10:08

What's the matter with you?

0:10:080:10:10

My booby trap's broken.

0:10:100:10:12

Oh, dear! What a terrible shame that is.

0:10:120:10:17

Oh. Oh.

0:10:170:10:20

That one's still fine, though.

0:10:200:10:22

Oh... This is the prop. No thanks to Rattus.

0:10:220:10:26

What we have here is a jar of leeches.

0:10:260:10:30

Now, in the Middle Ages, you could have a job

0:10:300:10:34

collecting leeches for medical use.

0:10:340:10:35

You had to go along to a leech-filled pond and do what?

0:10:350:10:39

Was it...

0:10:390:10:41

You've all said C.

0:10:510:10:52

The answer is in fact C.

0:10:520:10:55

You'd have to stand in the lake and wait for the leeches to bite,

0:10:550:10:58

then you'd have to pull 'em off and bag them.

0:10:580:11:01

Well done, that's a point for all of you.

0:11:010:11:03

Superb effort, and, Ellie, it is your turn to pick a category.

0:11:030:11:07

William II, please.

0:11:070:11:09

King William II of England died in a hunting accident in 1100 AD,

0:11:090:11:14

but what killed him?

0:11:140:11:16

Was it...

0:11:160:11:18

A, a wild boar.

0:11:180:11:19

B, his own horse.

0:11:190:11:21

Or C, an arrow?

0:11:210:11:23

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:11:260:11:29

Everyone's gone for C again.

0:11:290:11:32

Are they all right or are they all wrong?

0:11:320:11:34

The answer is C - an arrow.

0:11:340:11:37

During the hunt, William II was shot in mysterious circumstances

0:11:370:11:41

by Walter Tyrell, one of his own men.

0:11:410:11:44

So, a point to everyone there.

0:11:440:11:47

The last question in this round is on Bridges.

0:11:470:11:50

If you were on a boat in the Middle Ages,

0:11:510:11:54

why was it a bad idea to sail under a bridge?

0:11:540:11:58

A, it was considered bad luck.

0:11:580:12:00

B, some bridges were public toilets.

0:12:000:12:03

Or C, people would often throw spears from bridges to catch fish?

0:12:030:12:08

Ooh, that's a tricky one. What do you think?

0:12:080:12:10

Look at that, everyone going for a different answer.

0:12:130:12:16

Let's find out who's right.

0:12:160:12:18

The answer is B.

0:12:180:12:20

Some bridges were public toilets with holes that emptied

0:12:200:12:24

straight into the river.

0:12:240:12:26

Or onto sailors' heads, ugh!

0:12:260:12:28

Yes, the bridges were public toilets.

0:12:300:12:34

So we could play Pooh poos. Like Pooh sticks, only with poos.

0:12:340:12:38

I think you'll be playing that one on your own, Rattus.

0:12:380:12:41

Excellent. Ellie, congratulations,

0:12:410:12:43

that extra point for you means you have won yet another Year Sphere.

0:12:430:12:45

Congratulations, help yourself.

0:12:450:12:47

Er...

0:12:490:12:50

Ellie, as the winner of the Middle Ages quiz,

0:12:550:12:57

you're through to play the Middle Ages game.

0:12:570:12:59

But will you play on your own or will the others join in with you?

0:12:590:13:03

Let's find out.

0:13:030:13:05

It's an all-play Gory Game.

0:13:080:13:10

So that means all of you, back down that Time Sewer.

0:13:100:13:13

Go on, Calla. Bye, Jay.

0:13:140:13:16

Oh, my glasses have all steamed up!

0:13:160:13:19

William the Conqueror's funeral was memorable to say the least.

0:13:210:13:24

His servants stole his treasure and the church caught fire.

0:13:240:13:28

It's time to play...

0:13:280:13:29

You are William's servants

0:13:310:13:32

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

0:13:320:13:36

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

0:13:360:13:39

But you'd better be quick because the church is going to catch fire.

0:13:390:13:43

Whoever collects the most pieces wins the Year Sphere.

0:13:430:13:46

And your time starts now.

0:13:460:13:48

HORN BLOWS

0:13:480:13:50

There they go, into their thieving very, very quickly.

0:13:500:13:54

Calla making a good start.

0:13:540:13:55

And Ellie's picked herself a candlestick already.

0:13:550:13:58

And there, well, there's Jay, he's got one too.

0:13:580:14:01

That's excellent, this is all very good... Oh, it's closed.

0:14:010:14:04

-We've not seen this before.

-We haven't.

0:14:040:14:06

The lid is closed, I think what she's going to do here

0:14:060:14:08

-is open the lid again.

-Open the lid.

0:14:080:14:10

Oh, she's already done it.

0:14:100:14:12

Well, that wasn't quite as dramatic a moment as we thought, Rattus.

0:14:120:14:15

-Spoilt it a bit really for me.

-Yeah, what a shame. Never mind.

0:14:150:14:19

Back in the game, Ellie's drawn level with Calla

0:14:190:14:22

with a lovely little goblet.

0:14:220:14:24

She's doing very nicely, she's thieving at great speed.

0:14:240:14:27

Jay seems to be getting a bit hung up with that plate.

0:14:270:14:30

Meanwhile, Calla has got four items already. Terrific stuff.

0:14:300:14:34

Terrific stuff.

0:14:340:14:35

Rattus, William's body was so bloated and rotten

0:14:370:14:39

at his funeral that he exploded, so if we're lucky, wow, there he goes.

0:14:390:14:45

That has covered Calla in unspeakable goo.

0:14:450:14:49

That certainly explains why this game is called Yuckaroo.

0:14:490:14:53

William the Conqueror, RIP. Rest in Pieces.

0:14:530:14:58

Quite literally, Dave, in pieces.

0:14:580:15:01

Yeah. Yeah.

0:15:010:15:03

30 seconds remaining.

0:15:030:15:05

Calla, meanwhile, is notching up an impressive haul here.

0:15:060:15:09

An impressive, impressive haul.

0:15:090:15:12

Jay seems to be stuck on that rather superb goblet, I suppose.

0:15:120:15:16

And if you see one of those for sale at a market near you,

0:15:160:15:19

please report it to the police, because it's Jay who's stolen it.

0:15:190:15:22

It's a race against the clock for the girls here.

0:15:220:15:26

And it's getting smoky. The fire really taking hold now.

0:15:260:15:30

Oh, that's a lovely bit of thieving

0:15:300:15:32

but I don't think she's got the right colour there.

0:15:320:15:35

Time's up.

0:15:350:15:37

And Ellie unfortunately fell foul of the colour-coding law,

0:15:370:15:40

and so Calla takes that one by a whisker.

0:15:400:15:43

Very, very, very close game, that was. Excellent stuff.

0:15:450:15:49

And the winner, with six pieces of treasure, was Calla.

0:15:490:15:52

Help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:15:520:15:54

Right, round three and it's over to the Gory Grid to find out

0:16:000:16:03

what's up next.

0:16:030:16:04

It's the Nasty Knights.

0:16:060:16:09

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

0:16:090:16:14

So, Calla, what'll you have?

0:16:200:16:22

Erm, French Knights, please.

0:16:220:16:24

True or false?

0:16:250:16:26

The French knight Bertrand Du Guesclin, born in 1320,

0:16:260:16:29

was such an ugly child

0:16:290:16:31

that his parents pretended he wasn't their son.

0:16:310:16:34

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

0:16:340:16:37

Well, Ellie and Jay going for true, Calla on her own with false.

0:16:380:16:41

What's the answer?

0:16:410:16:43

It's true.

0:16:430:16:44

Despite being their eldest, they made him eat dinner in the stables.

0:16:440:16:48

Happily he grew up to be incredibly famous and powerful.

0:16:480:16:52

Dave, it sounds like your life story.

0:16:520:16:55

Except for the famous and powerful bit.

0:16:550:16:57

LAUGHTER

0:16:570:16:59

OK, let's award points.

0:16:590:17:00

I'm going to give one to Ellie and one to Jay.

0:17:000:17:04

Next question, that is up to you, Ellie. What will you chose?

0:17:040:17:07

Can I have Messages, please?

0:17:070:17:09

That is a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:17:090:17:11

It certainly is. Thank you very much. True or false?

0:17:110:17:16

Besieged castles kept in touch with friends on the outside

0:17:160:17:20

by attaching messages to rats.

0:17:200:17:24

So, besieged castles kept in touch with friends on the outside

0:17:240:17:28

by attaching messages to rats.

0:17:280:17:31

Is that true or is that false?

0:17:310:17:33

Well, they've all gone for false.

0:17:350:17:38

Rattus, what is the answer?

0:17:380:17:40

Well, it is indeed false, yes.

0:17:400:17:43

But they did use carrier pigeons,

0:17:430:17:46

an idea learned from the Saracens in the Middle East.

0:17:460:17:50

Although pigeons sometimes landed in the enemy camps, it's true,

0:17:500:17:54

and gave away all the secrets.

0:17:540:17:56

Still, a point for each of you. Well played.

0:17:560:17:59

Jay, your turn to pick a topic.

0:17:590:18:01

Knights of the Bath, please.

0:18:010:18:03

True or false? In England,

0:18:030:18:05

so-called Knights of the Bath were knighted whilst in the bath.

0:18:050:18:08

Is that true or is that false?

0:18:080:18:10

Let's see those answers now, please.

0:18:100:18:14

Well, you've all gone for false.

0:18:140:18:16

Are you all right or are you all wrong?

0:18:160:18:17

Let's find out, what's the answer, please?

0:18:170:18:19

It's false.

0:18:190:18:21

Although they did have to bathe before their knighting ceremony,

0:18:210:18:24

and sometimes they even bathed with the king.

0:18:240:18:26

Which, to be honest, I still find a little weird.

0:18:260:18:29

Excellent, that's a point each again.

0:18:290:18:32

The last category in this round is Babies,

0:18:320:18:36

and the question is this.

0:18:360:18:39

Is this true or false?

0:18:390:18:41

Could that possibly be true? Show me your answers now, please.

0:18:500:18:53

Everybody has gone for true.

0:18:550:18:58

What's the answer?

0:18:580:18:59

The answer is, it's true.

0:18:590:19:02

I don't know much about health and safety

0:19:020:19:04

but that sounds like a bad idea.

0:19:040:19:07

Absolutely, and if any of you do have fathers who are knights,

0:19:070:19:11

please don't eat food from the tip of his sword.

0:19:110:19:13

Particularly if you've only just been born.

0:19:130:19:16

OK, brilliant, that's another point for everybody, well played.

0:19:160:19:19

And look at that, Jay and Ellie, we have a tie-breaker situation.

0:19:190:19:24

Beginning with the letter S,

0:19:260:19:27

what weapon would a knight keep in his scabbard?

0:19:270:19:30

Sword?

0:19:300:19:32

Jay, sword is absolutely right. Well buzzed in.

0:19:320:19:35

You've won yourself a Year Sphere, please take it now.

0:19:350:19:38

Have you got a nose for stinkers? I certainly have.

0:19:400:19:44

Well done, Jay.

0:19:450:19:46

You have won the knights quiz

0:19:460:19:48

and you're through to play the knights game.

0:19:480:19:50

But will you be playing alone

0:19:500:19:51

or will everyone else get to play with you?

0:19:510:19:53

Let's find out.

0:19:530:19:56

It's a single-player game.

0:19:570:20:00

So get down that Time Sewer on your own, Jay.

0:20:000:20:03

Woohoo!

0:20:050:20:07

Well, I hope he's feeling brave because it's time to play...

0:20:070:20:11

And this is a Stupid Death game.

0:20:120:20:15

I love this story.

0:20:170:20:19

In 1291, some crusaders made a night-time raid on a Saracen camp.

0:20:190:20:23

But one of them tripped over a tent rope and fell into a toilet hole

0:20:230:20:27

where he got stuck in poo and drowned!

0:20:270:20:30

I bet he looked flushed.

0:20:300:20:32

Flushed! It was a toilet.

0:20:320:20:35

Anyway, your challenge is to get from one side

0:20:350:20:37

of the Saracen camp to the other, and rescue your friend

0:20:370:20:41

from the poo pit without waking the sleeping Saracen.

0:20:410:20:44

Touch a tent rope and the bells will ring.

0:20:440:20:47

Do it three times and it's game over.

0:20:470:20:49

And your time starts now.

0:20:490:20:53

So here goes Jay, through the first set of ropes.

0:20:530:20:57

He's going for a sort of low-level crawling technique,

0:20:570:21:00

I've not seen that before, Rattus.

0:21:000:21:02

Oh, he's twanged a rope.

0:21:020:21:05

No bells yet though. Very lucky.

0:21:050:21:07

Ah, he really needs to be up on his feet at this bit.

0:21:090:21:12

This is a much easier game to play if you're standing up and balancing.

0:21:120:21:16

Oh, he's rung a bell there.

0:21:160:21:19

Oh, and he's done it again, that's two bells tinkled now.

0:21:190:21:23

Nothing worse than a butt tinkle, Dave.

0:21:230:21:25

No. That really was a genuine butt tinkle there.

0:21:250:21:29

I don't want to be the voice of doom, Rattus, but I'm going to be!

0:21:290:21:33

-I like that.

-It's not looking good for Jay here.

0:21:330:21:36

One more ring and that Saracen'll be up and at him.

0:21:360:21:40

Tick tock, your time is running out.

0:21:420:21:45

I really wish Death wouldn't do that, it's not helping.

0:21:470:21:51

Well, this is it, his last attempt and I think this

0:21:520:21:54

low-down technique is not doing him any favours, is it, Rattus?

0:21:540:21:58

Look how close his head is to that. He's touching it.

0:21:580:22:01

Oh, it's tinkling.

0:22:010:22:03

That Saracen's up. I think we should probably cut away from this,

0:22:030:22:06

it's going to get messy.

0:22:060:22:08

And poor old Jay has absolutely had it.

0:22:080:22:11

Welcome back, welcome back.

0:22:120:22:15

That was so close, but sadly no Year Sphere.

0:22:150:22:18

What was the most challenging thing about it?

0:22:180:22:20

Probably trying to make yourself small enough to fit through.

0:22:200:22:23

Yeah, superb effort.

0:22:230:22:25

It's the final round, so it's over to the Gory Grid one last time

0:22:250:22:28

to find out what we've got.

0:22:280:22:30

It's the Terrible Tudors.

0:22:320:22:34

No quirky quiz in our final round,

0:22:340:22:36

it's straight on to our big all-play Tudor endgame.

0:22:360:22:40

And it's a very silly one. Get down that Time Sewer.

0:22:400:22:44

Go, go, go, go, go!

0:22:440:22:46

Bye.

0:22:460:22:47

HE COUGHS

0:22:470:22:50

It's time to play...

0:22:530:22:55

Henry VIII certainly liked pie.

0:22:570:22:59

Your challenge is to feed him as many as possible.

0:22:590:23:02

The person who gets the most pies in their Henry's mouth

0:23:020:23:05

in the time limit wins the Year Sphere.

0:23:050:23:08

Get ready then, because it's pie time.

0:23:080:23:10

It's going to be Henry VIII who eats all the pies, isn't it, Rattus?

0:23:100:23:14

Absolutely right there, Dave. Pie, gravy and all.

0:23:140:23:17

Well, yes, I'd say that, judging by the way all those three pies

0:23:170:23:20

fell short, maybe he won't be eating anything today.

0:23:200:23:23

He's going to be going home hungry tonight, Dave.

0:23:230:23:25

I think you're absolutely right, Rattus.

0:23:250:23:27

Not as many pies as usual there and this is why.

0:23:270:23:29

Frankly some wild throwing going on here.

0:23:290:23:33

It's a shame Henry can't move around, in many ways.

0:23:330:23:36

The bungee cords there, not very historically accurate,

0:23:360:23:39

but terrifically amusing.

0:23:390:23:41

Henry, nothing yet. Absolutely starving.

0:23:410:23:45

-Oh!

-As you speak.

0:23:450:23:48

As I say that, Ellie lands a pie.

0:23:480:23:50

30 seconds remaining.

0:23:510:23:54

Just 30 seconds remaining now,

0:23:540:23:55

and thank goodness because they're looking extremely tired.

0:23:550:23:59

Ouch.

0:23:590:24:00

They're getting about a quarter of the way up the lane now,

0:24:000:24:04

look at that. Oh, no!

0:24:040:24:06

Good throw, it was a good throw, it was a very good throw.

0:24:060:24:09

Oh, look at poor old Ellie, she is looking tired.

0:24:090:24:12

-She's looking tired but maybe...

-Oh, slippy doodah!

0:24:120:24:14

Oops, she slippy doodahed there but maybe Ellie's done enough,

0:24:140:24:17

you never know. You have to say, these guys are making history

0:24:170:24:19

with their inability to feed poor old Henry.

0:24:190:24:22

Time's up.

0:24:220:24:24

Wow, a single pie wins it for Ellie.

0:24:250:24:27

A very interesting final game there.

0:24:280:24:32

Not that many pies going into Henry VIII's mouth, were there?

0:24:320:24:37

In fact, there was one pie which went into Henry VIII's mouth,

0:24:370:24:40

that the winner of the last Year Sphere is Ellie.

0:24:400:24:43

-Help yourself, please, Ellie.

-Yay.

-Yay.

0:24:430:24:46

This could be crucial. The last Year Sphere, there it goes across.

0:24:480:24:53

Put down with due reverence.

0:24:530:24:55

Now it's time to count up those Year Spheres

0:24:550:24:57

and remember AD dates are added and BC dates are subtracted.

0:24:570:25:03

It's the moment of truth.

0:25:030:25:05

So let's have a look at your first Year Sphere, Ellie.

0:25:050:25:08

1605 AD, a nice start.

0:25:090:25:13

The gunpowder plot, of course, was that year.

0:25:130:25:16

Let's have a look at the second one.

0:25:160:25:19

Oh, no! Oh, no!

0:25:190:25:21

2500 BC.

0:25:210:25:25

Stones were added to Stonehenge round about then.

0:25:250:25:29

Let's have a look at that third sphere, this could be vital.

0:25:290:25:31

1945 AD.

0:25:330:25:36

Well, the end of the Second World War, of course, that year.

0:25:360:25:39

That gets you well back into a positive score.

0:25:390:25:41

The turn of this last sphere could be crucial -

0:25:410:25:44

let's have a look at it.

0:25:440:25:45

Oh, 1341 BC. Tutankhamun became pharaoh that year.

0:25:450:25:51

Well, Ellie, that has left you with a total of minus 291.

0:25:520:25:59

But it's not necessarily all over.

0:26:000:26:04

Jay, can you beat minus 291 with your sphere?

0:26:040:26:07

Let's have a look.

0:26:070:26:09

You can!

0:26:090:26:10

1854 AD, the beginning of the Crimean War,

0:26:100:26:14

puts you in pole position.

0:26:140:26:16

It's a straight fight between 1854

0:26:160:26:19

and whatever Calla has got in her Year Sphere.

0:26:190:26:21

Let's have a look at it now, let's see, this is for the game.

0:26:210:26:24

Open it up, please.

0:26:240:26:27

1901 AD!

0:26:270:26:30

Queen Victoria died that year.

0:26:300:26:32

So today's winner, with 1901 points, is Calla.

0:26:320:26:37

But she may well wish she hadn't won because her prize, of course,

0:26:370:26:41

has been fished out of a Time Sewer by Rattus Rattus.

0:26:410:26:45

Excuse me, today's prize is excellent.

0:26:450:26:49

A piece of undercover spy equipment

0:26:490:26:52

from the Second World War that's worthy of James Bond himself.

0:26:520:26:58

Wow. Oh, let me guess, is it a pen that fires a laser?

0:26:580:27:01

-Better.

-It's not a watch you can drive a car with?

0:27:010:27:04

-Better.

-Is it a pair of glasses that turn into a helicopter?

0:27:040:27:08

No, it's a land mine disguised as a cowpat.

0:27:080:27:10

What? You can't give a land mine as a prize!

0:27:100:27:15

Yeah, I thought you'd say that, so that one's actually just a cowpat.

0:27:150:27:19

Brilliant. Well, congratulations, Calla, there you go.

0:27:190:27:22

You lucky thing.

0:27:220:27:24

So a smelly cowpat for Calla,

0:27:240:27:25

and I'm afraid you two will also be getting caked

0:27:250:27:28

in a bit of you-know-what,

0:27:280:27:30

as you're getting flushed home through the Time Sewers.

0:27:300:27:33

Oh, heavens, off you go. You didn't know about this, did you?

0:27:330:27:37

Go, go, go, go, go. Enjoy yourself.

0:27:370:27:40

If you want to play along at home next time,

0:27:420:27:44

don't forget to download the Gory Games app.

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:27:470:27:50

THEY GROAN

0:27:510:27:53

I'm Dave Lamb, and I certainly need a bit of wash.

0:27:560:27:58

And I'm Rattus Rattus, and I never wash.

0:27:580:28:01

-And you've been watching Gory Games. Goodbye.

-Bye-bye.
