# Horrible Histories Gory Games. #

0:00:210:00:24

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

0:00:240:00:27

and my assistant Rattus Rattus.

0:00:270:00:28

The talking rat and the talking Lamb.

0:00:280:00:31

You get to test your knowledge of Horrible Histories

0:00:310:00:34

with quirky quizzes and gory games.

0:00:340:00:36

So, let's meet our Horrible Historians.

0:00:360:00:38

-Hi, I'm Ashley.

-Hi, Ashley.

0:00:380:00:40

-Hi, I'm Rowan.

-Hello, Rowan.

0:00:400:00:42

-Hi, I'm Zeke.

-Hi, Zeke.

-Hi.

0:00:420:00:44

Before we get going, there's just time for a little warm-up game

0:00:440:00:47

I like to call "Doc Doc".

0:00:470:00:49

-"Doc Doc"?

-Who's there?

0:00:490:00:51

Just get on with it.

0:00:510:00:53

HE LAUGHS

0:00:530:00:54

The ancient Greek doctor, Hippocrates,

0:00:540:00:56

had a very scientific approach to medicine.

0:00:560:00:59

He invented the technique of testing samples from patients

0:00:590:01:02

so we've taken samples from three sick patients.

0:01:020:01:06

The samples are -

0:01:060:01:07

snot, wee and earwax.

0:01:070:01:09

Oh, lovely.

0:01:090:01:10

And all you have to do is work out what they're suffering from.

0:01:100:01:14

And just how are they supposed to test them?

0:01:140:01:16

-Just like Hippocrates did.

-OK.

0:01:160:01:19

-You're going to taste them.

-Ew.

0:01:190:01:21

Just give them a taste and tell us what the patient is suffering from.

0:01:210:01:24

No, no, please do not do that, OK? Thank you.

0:01:240:01:27

Do you not understand the word "unhygienic"?

0:01:270:01:29

-No, I'm a rat.

-Let's just get on with the show.

0:01:290:01:32

Mmmm, this earwax is quite chewy.

0:01:350:01:39

Urgh.

0:01:390:01:40

Right. Ashley, Rowan and Zeke. You are playing to win Year Spheres.

0:01:420:01:47

Each Year Sphere contains a historical date

0:01:470:01:50

and at the end of the show your Year Sphere dates will be added up,

0:01:500:01:53

with AD dates being added to your total

0:01:530:01:55

and BC dates being subtracted from it.

0:01:550:01:58

If these were your Year Spheres, your total would be... Rattus?

0:01:580:02:01

I can't do maths for medical reasons.

0:02:010:02:04

-Medical reasons?

-Yes. Maths could make my brain explode.

0:02:040:02:07

735 is the answer.

0:02:090:02:11

The person with the highest year count will win today's star prize.

0:02:110:02:15

-Believe you me - it's brilliant.

-Is it?

0:02:150:02:18

-Yeah, yeah.

-I sincerely doubt it.

0:02:180:02:21

To find out what this round's about, it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:02:210:02:25

It's the Gorgeous Georgians.

0:02:250:02:28

Your four Georgian topics are -

0:02:280:02:30

Ashley, it's your turn to pick first in this round. Pick a topic, please.

0:02:350:02:39

-George III.

-George III.

0:02:390:02:41

When King George III became ill, he started doing odd things.

0:02:410:02:46

Which of these did he supposedly do?

0:02:460:02:49

A - claim to be King of the Moon,

0:02:490:02:51

B - try and grow a beef tree,

0:02:510:02:53

or C - wear his shoes on his hands and his gloves on his feet.

0:02:530:02:58

So, is it A, B or C? Let's see your answers now, please.

0:02:580:03:01

There we go. Three B's.

0:03:020:03:04

You're all in total agreement.

0:03:040:03:06

Let's see if you're right.

0:03:060:03:08

The answer is B.

0:03:080:03:09

He planted some beef, thinking it would grow into a beef tree.

0:03:090:03:13

I'm no expert on farming, but I don't think that's how it's done.

0:03:130:03:16

No, no, no.

0:03:160:03:17

That is not how it's done, but it's a very good start from all of you.

0:03:170:03:21

You're off the mark with a point apiece.

0:03:210:03:23

-Rowan, it is your turn. Pick a topic for us, please.

-Crime.

0:03:230:03:28

The question is -

0:03:280:03:30

A's from Ashley and Rowan, a C from Zeke.

0:03:410:03:44

Let's see who's right.

0:03:440:03:46

The answer is -

0:03:460:03:48

It had recently been claimed for Britain

0:03:500:03:52

by our Georgian explorer, Captain Cook.

0:03:520:03:55

Well done, Zeke. Excellent work. You've forged into the lead.

0:03:550:03:58

Still plenty of time in this round.

0:03:580:04:00

Don't panic, everyone. Don't panic.

0:04:000:04:02

-Zeke, it's your turn.

-George II.

0:04:020:04:05

Where did King George II die?

0:04:060:04:09

A - in the middle of a banquet,

0:04:090:04:11

B - while riding his horse,

0:04:110:04:13

or C - on the toilet.

0:04:130:04:15

Well, the boys going for A.

0:04:160:04:18

Rowan going for C.

0:04:180:04:20

The answer is C. He died on the toilet.

0:04:200:04:23

HE LAUGHS

0:04:230:04:24

No, really, I shouldn't laugh. It's not...

0:04:240:04:26

No, no, no, no.

0:04:260:04:27

THEY LAUGH

0:04:270:04:28

-He died on the toilet.

-He died on the toilet.

0:04:280:04:31

That's not funny.

0:04:310:04:32

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:04:320:04:36

Sorry, I'm a professional at this.

0:04:360:04:38

The final question in this round

0:04:380:04:40

is on Cures and it's a question

0:04:400:04:41

-from Rattus Rattus.

-Thank you, Dave.

0:04:410:04:45

A Georgian cure for being bitten by an adder,

0:04:450:04:49

was to put what over the bite wound?

0:04:490:04:53

Was it A - warm chicken guts?

0:04:530:04:56

B - the grease from a badger?

0:04:560:05:00

Or C - a cowpat?

0:05:000:05:02

Well, look at that.

0:05:030:05:05

Rowan and Zeke going for A. Ashley out on his own with B.

0:05:050:05:08

-Rattus, put us out of our misery, what's the answer?

-A.

-Yay!

0:05:080:05:11

Georgian's would kill a chicken

0:05:110:05:14

and put its warm guts over the snake bite.

0:05:140:05:16

That's utter nonsense, isn't it?

0:05:160:05:18

Although warm chicken guts are a very good cure for hunger.

0:05:180:05:22

-Urgh.

-Yes, one word - yuck.

0:05:220:05:24

One word - yummy.

0:05:240:05:26

Two words - bad taste.

0:05:260:05:27

Two words - delicious taste.

0:05:270:05:30

Three words - let's stop this.

0:05:300:05:31

-Two letters - OK.

-Good.

0:05:310:05:33

That is the end of the round,

0:05:330:05:35

and what we see from our abacus of score is that

0:05:350:05:38

Zeke and Rowan have tied it on three points each.

0:05:380:05:41

Ashley, for now, you're history.

0:05:410:05:43

The other two of you, put your fingers on the buzzer

0:05:430:05:45

because we're about to have the first buzzer question.

0:05:450:05:49

Beginning with the letter G,

0:05:490:05:50

what is the name of the head-chopping device

0:05:500:05:53

used to execute posh people in the French Revolution?

0:05:530:05:56

-Zeke.

-Guillotine.

-Is correct. You've won the quiz.

0:05:560:05:59

Time to choose a Year Sphere.

0:05:590:06:01

You better hope it doesn't contain a Stone Age date

0:06:010:06:03

which could be worth a million minus points.

0:06:030:06:05

Push, push, push, push. Ah!

0:06:050:06:08

Zeke, come and pick your Year Sphere.

0:06:080:06:10

-Yeah.

-Any one you like.

0:06:100:06:12

-That one? You sure?

-Sure.

0:06:120:06:14

Okey-cokey. Push, push, push...

0:06:140:06:16

Winning the quiz means that Zeke is through

0:06:160:06:19

to play the Georgian game.

0:06:190:06:21

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

0:06:210:06:24

Let's find out.

0:06:240:06:25

It's a single player silly game.

0:06:290:06:31

So, Zeke, it's off down the Time Sewer with you.

0:06:310:06:35

Go on, fellow. It stinks, by the way.

0:06:350:06:37

-Aw, that does stink, as well.

-I told you.

0:06:370:06:39

He's gone.

0:06:390:06:40

It's the 21st of October 1805,

0:06:430:06:46

and Lord Nelson has just sent a signal from his flagship saying,

0:06:460:06:49

"England expects that every man will do his duty."

0:06:490:06:52

But will you do yours?

0:06:520:06:53

It's time to play -

0:06:530:06:55

You are a British Navy gunner.

0:06:570:06:59

Your mission - to load, aim and fire your cannon at the enemy ships.

0:06:590:07:02

You score a point for every enemy ship you shoot

0:07:020:07:05

and lose a point for every British ship you hit.

0:07:050:07:08

Score six points in the time limit to win your Year Sphere.

0:07:080:07:11

And battle begins now!

0:07:110:07:13

BUZZER

0:07:130:07:15

So, here comes Zeke to try his hand at The Battle Of Trafalgar.

0:07:150:07:18

Remember, that platform he's on

0:07:180:07:20

is going to wobble around as if it's a ship at sea.

0:07:200:07:23

He's off already.

0:07:230:07:24

He's off already and that's one Spanish galleon taken out.

0:07:240:07:28

He needs six to win the Year Sphere.

0:07:280:07:29

Six and no misses against the British ship there.

0:07:290:07:33

That would be a terrible mistake.

0:07:330:07:35

We don't want to see any friendly fire.

0:07:350:07:37

But we like to see the French getting sunk. In this game.

0:07:370:07:40

So, he loads up the cannon ball.

0:07:400:07:42

-Are they cannon balls?

-Yes.

0:07:420:07:44

I ate two of them this morning thinking they were doughnuts.

0:07:440:07:47

Yeah, that must have challenged your teeth slightly, did it?

0:07:470:07:51

Not answering me.

0:07:510:07:53

Broken teeth. Three down.

0:07:530:07:54

Just have to mention the seagulls getting involved here, Rattus.

0:07:540:07:57

That seagull is really going to get hurt, isn't he?

0:07:570:08:00

It's all right, he's a stunt seagull, Dave.

0:08:000:08:02

As long as he's properly trained, it's fine.

0:08:020:08:05

There's another cannon ball going in. He's doing quite well here.

0:08:050:08:08

It's getting very close. He needs one more to do it.

0:08:080:08:11

You hear lots of stories about rats leaving sinking ships. Is that fair?

0:08:110:08:15

Absolutely. Any rat with half a brain will leave a sinking ship.

0:08:150:08:19

And, in fact, the rule of thumb is if you see a load of rats in the sea,

0:08:190:08:22

jump in and swim with them.

0:08:220:08:24

If you can gather enough of them together,

0:08:240:08:27

you can build a raft.

0:08:270:08:28

Fascinating stuff, Rattus. There it is! Zeke has done it.

0:08:280:08:31

Welcome back, Zeke. Collect yourself a Year Sphere.

0:08:320:08:35

Oooh, yay!

0:08:350:08:36

During the Battle of Trafalgar, the British lost 1,666 men

0:08:360:08:41

compared to the French and Spanish navies who lost nearly 14,000.

0:08:410:08:45

-How many more is that, Rattus?

-Oh, hold on. I've written it down.

0:08:450:08:49

-735.

-Is the right answer...

0:08:490:08:51

-Get in!

-..to the wrong question.

0:08:510:08:54

That's the answer to the Year Sphere sum from the top of the show.

0:08:540:08:57

Anyway, Trafalgar was a British military triumph.

0:08:570:09:00

734?

0:09:000:09:01

Moving on.

0:09:010:09:02

It's time now for us to find out what's up next,

0:09:020:09:05

so let's go over to the Gory Grid.

0:09:050:09:06

It's the Terrible Tudors.

0:09:060:09:09

Here are your all-important Tudor topics.

0:09:090:09:11

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

0:09:160:09:19

-Wives.

-Wives.

0:09:190:09:21

I agreed to marry Anne of Cleves after being shown a picture of her.

0:09:210:09:26

When I actually met her,

0:09:260:09:27

she turned out to be far uglier than the picture.

0:09:270:09:30

So, what was my nickname for Anne of Cleves?

0:09:300:09:33

Total agreement.

0:09:430:09:44

B's across the board. Let's find out if you're right.

0:09:440:09:47

The answer is B - the Flanders mare.

0:09:470:09:50

As in a horse.

0:09:500:09:51

Because she looked like a horse. Ha ha ha! Brilliant!

0:09:510:09:55

Yeah, why the long face?

0:09:550:09:57

Cos you look like a horse.

0:09:570:09:59

So, that's a point apiece. Zeke, your turn to pick a topic.

0:09:590:10:03

-Elizabeth.

-Elizabeth.

0:10:030:10:06

My daughter Elizabeth I had a terrible temper.

0:10:060:10:10

No idea who she got it from.

0:10:100:10:12

What did she once throw at Sir Francis Walsingham's head?

0:10:120:10:15

The boys agreeing with B.

0:10:220:10:23

Rowan going for C. Let's find out who's right.

0:10:230:10:26

The answer is B.

0:10:260:10:28

She threw a slipper at him.

0:10:280:10:30

Hit him, too. That's my girl!

0:10:300:10:33

Brilliant.

0:10:330:10:35

The boys edging slightly ahead.

0:10:350:10:37

Still two questions left in this round, though.

0:10:370:10:39

Ashley, your turn to choose a topic.

0:10:390:10:42

I'd like Plays, please.

0:10:420:10:43

See what you make of this one.

0:10:440:10:46

The boys agreeing again on C. Rowan, out on her own with A.

0:10:590:11:03

Let's find out what the answer is.

0:11:030:11:05

The answer is C.

0:11:050:11:08

The female parts in Shakespeare's plays were played by teenage boys.

0:11:080:11:12

And one of our boys is going to win a Year Sphere

0:11:120:11:14

at the end of this round. Which will it be?

0:11:140:11:16

One topic left in this round.

0:11:160:11:18

That is Cures and it is a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:11:180:11:21

Which of these was not a Tudor cure for baldness?

0:11:210:11:26

A - smearing the head with horse droppings,

0:11:260:11:29

B - washing the head with the juice of beetles,

0:11:290:11:33

or C - smearing the head with the grease of a fox.

0:11:330:11:37

A complete spread of answers. All gone for different things.

0:11:390:11:43

Rattus, who is right?

0:11:430:11:45

A - smearing their head with horse droppings.

0:11:450:11:48

That was not a Tudor baldness cure.

0:11:480:11:51

Oh, by the way,

0:11:510:11:52

beetle juice mixed with fox grease makes a delicious pudding.

0:11:520:11:56

-Urgh.

-Uh.

0:11:560:11:57

Unnecessary, Rattus. That's the end of the round.

0:11:570:12:00

Ashley and Zeke, you have tied with three points apiece.

0:12:000:12:05

Rowan, you're history for now, I'm afraid.

0:12:050:12:07

But the other two, fingers on buzzers.

0:12:070:12:10

Beginning with the letter D,

0:12:100:12:12

what is the surname of the famous Tudor sailor

0:12:120:12:14

who defeated the Spanish Armada?

0:12:140:12:17

-Zeke.

-I think it's Drake.

0:12:170:12:19

It is Drake. Congratulations, Zeke.

0:12:190:12:22

Well done, you've won yourself another Year Sphere.

0:12:220:12:25

Pop round and collect it for me.

0:12:250:12:27

As the quiz winner, you're also through to play the Tudor game,

0:12:270:12:30

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

0:12:300:12:34

Let's find out.

0:12:340:12:35

It's a single player brainy game.

0:12:380:12:41

I'm sorry, Ashley, your time will come. So will yours, Rowan.

0:12:410:12:44

Let's get back down that Time Sewer. You know the way.

0:12:440:12:47

Seven famous Tudor-types,

0:12:510:12:52

five of them were beheaded on Henry's orders.

0:12:520:12:55

Only two died of natural causes.

0:12:550:12:57

And no, an axe didn't count as a natural cause.

0:12:570:13:00

Even during Henry's reign.

0:13:000:13:02

It's time to play -

0:13:020:13:04

Your challenge - to work out which five were beheaded.

0:13:060:13:09

Choose five names and move them to the beheaded board.

0:13:090:13:12

Then touch the severed Tudor head to find out how many you've got right.

0:13:120:13:15

Keep trying new combinations until you've got all five.

0:13:150:13:18

But you're against the clock.

0:13:180:13:20

And your time starts now.

0:13:200:13:23

BUZZER

0:13:230:13:25

So, here goes Zeke on the Axe Factor.

0:13:250:13:28

What he has to do here, Rattus,

0:13:280:13:29

is work out which five of these people

0:13:290:13:32

were executed by Henry VIII.

0:13:320:13:35

And Zeke clearly believes that Sir Thomas Moore and Anne Boleyn were.

0:13:350:13:39

Well, it's an encouraging start. He's got two names up there already.

0:13:390:13:43

And he's weighing up his options, here. I like to see this.

0:13:430:13:47

I like to see a player thoroughly think through their tactics

0:13:470:13:51

before acting.

0:13:510:13:53

It pays dividends. Jane Boleyn.

0:13:530:13:55

The whole Boleyn family going up there by the look of it, Rattus.

0:13:550:13:59

Henry VIII did not like those Boleyns. Katherine Howard.

0:13:590:14:03

This actually looks good to me.

0:14:030:14:04

-You've all five right!

-The severed head confirms it.

0:14:040:14:07

Zeke has five out of five, and he has won a Year Sphere.

0:14:070:14:11

Zeke, congratulations. Pick another Year Sphere.

0:14:110:14:15

Oooh.

0:14:150:14:16

So, Anne Boleyn, Henry's wife, was famously beheaded.

0:14:160:14:19

And George Boleyn, Anne's brother, got the chop, too.

0:14:190:14:23

As did Jane Boleyn, his wife.

0:14:230:14:24

Looks like Henry was trying to collect the Boleyn set.

0:14:240:14:27

It was probably Henry's favourite game - Unhappy Families.

0:14:270:14:30

HE LAUGHS

0:14:300:14:32

Unhappy Fam... You're funny.

0:14:320:14:35

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

0:14:350:14:38

It's the Measly Middle-Agers.

0:14:380:14:41

Here are the Middle-Agers topics.

0:14:410:14:43

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

-Death.

-Death.

0:14:480:14:51

True or false.

0:14:510:14:54

After Henry II heard that Thomas Becket,

0:14:540:14:56

Archbishop of Canterbury, had been murdered,

0:14:560:14:59

he threw a massive party.

0:14:590:15:01

OK, Ashley and Rowan going for true.

0:15:030:15:05

Zeke out on his own with false.

0:15:050:15:08

Let's find out the answer.

0:15:080:15:09

False.

0:15:090:15:11

Henry felt really guilty about Becket's death

0:15:110:15:14

and walked all the way to Canterbury

0:15:140:15:16

where he was ceremoniously whipped by monks.

0:15:160:15:19

So, Zeke, off to another flying start.

0:15:190:15:22

Ashley, your turn to pick a topic.

0:15:220:15:24

-Er, Meal Time.

-Meal Time.

0:15:240:15:26

True or false.

0:15:260:15:28

According to our Middle Ages table manners,

0:15:280:15:31

it was OK to spit onto the table at meal times.

0:15:310:15:34

The boys going for true. Rowan going for false.

0:15:350:15:38

Let's hear what the answer is.

0:15:380:15:39

It's false. It was not OK. It's quite disgusting.

0:15:390:15:44

Although it was OK to spit onto the floor at meal times. Obviously.

0:15:440:15:48

So, Rowan and Zeke, you have a point apiece.

0:15:480:15:52

Still time to catch up, Ashley. Don't panic.

0:15:520:15:54

-And Rowan, it's your turn to pick a topic.

-Clothes.

0:15:540:15:57

That is a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:15:570:16:00

Well, thank you.

0:16:000:16:01

True or false.

0:16:010:16:03

In castles, clothes were kept in the toilet.

0:16:030:16:07

Well, Ashley and Rowan going for true.

0:16:080:16:11

Zeke on his own with false.

0:16:110:16:13

What's the answer, Rattus?

0:16:130:16:15

It's true. The castle toilet was called the garderobe.

0:16:150:16:19

Because it guarded robes.

0:16:190:16:22

Apparently the smell of poo and wee kept the cloth-eating moths away.

0:16:220:16:25

Though on the minor side, your clothes stank of poo and wee.

0:16:270:16:30

-No, it's not perfect.

-No, it's not ideal.

0:16:300:16:32

They've not thought that through.

0:16:320:16:34

OK, final topic of this round is Tournaments.

0:16:340:16:37

True or false.

0:16:380:16:40

Famous knight Sir William Marshall once failed to accept

0:16:400:16:44

one of his jousting prizes because his helmet was stuck on his head.

0:16:440:16:47

Ashley and Rowan again agreeing on true.

0:16:470:16:50

Zeke out on his own with false.

0:16:500:16:52

What's the actual answer, please?

0:16:520:16:55

It's true.

0:16:550:16:56

His helmet had been dented in the tournament

0:16:560:16:59

and he was at the blacksmiths having it prised off.

0:16:590:17:01

What he really needed was a can-opener.

0:17:010:17:03

HE LAUGHS

0:17:030:17:06

He loves it.

0:17:060:17:07

That means that Rowan, at the end of that round,

0:17:070:17:09

you've won your first Year Sphere. Please collect it.

0:17:090:17:12

Rowan, you're through to play the Measly Middle-Agers game

0:17:140:17:17

but will you be playing alone or will everyone get to play?

0:17:170:17:21

Ashley is actually praying. He wants to play.

0:17:210:17:23

Let's find out if he will.

0:17:230:17:24

It's an all play gory game.

0:17:270:17:30

Right, off down the Time Sewer with the lot of you. Lead the way, Zeke.

0:17:300:17:34

Down you go, Rowan.

0:17:360:17:37

-Urgh, it still stinks in here.

-Urgh, this is manky.

-This is disgusting.

0:17:370:17:42

William the Conqueror's funeral didn't exactly go according to plan.

0:17:420:17:45

His servants stole his treasure and the church burned down.

0:17:450:17:49

It's time to play -

0:17:490:17:50

You are William's servants

0:17:520:17:54

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

0:17:540:17:57

The treasure is colour-coded,

0:17:570:17:59

and you must only take your own loot.

0:17:590:18:01

Whoever collects the most wins the Year Sphere.

0:18:010:18:03

You'd better be quick cos the church will burn down.

0:18:030:18:06

Your time starts now.

0:18:060:18:08

BUZZER

0:18:080:18:10

So, Ashley, Rowan, Zeke. All about to attempt Yuckeroo.

0:18:100:18:14

Remember, they have to get their own colour-coded treasure

0:18:140:18:18

into their own chests.

0:18:180:18:19

That is the point. Now, Ashley's made a very good start, there.

0:18:190:18:23

And Zeke has now levelled. It's one apiece.

0:18:230:18:26

Actually, the boy is showing a real aptitude for thieving, here.

0:18:260:18:30

Well, I'm just thinking anyone who's just tuned in

0:18:300:18:32

might think they're watching

0:18:320:18:34

the weirdest Crimewatch reconstruction.

0:18:340:18:36

That's a very good point.

0:18:360:18:38

We're not Crimewatch.

0:18:380:18:39

We might be on Crimewatch soon if we keep this kind of thing up.

0:18:390:18:43

Actually, I really want to point out

0:18:430:18:45

that we are not encouraging thieving.

0:18:450:18:47

Even from a dead tyrant, it's bang out of order. Don't do it.

0:18:470:18:50

I forgot to mention...

0:18:500:18:52

EXPLOSION

0:18:520:18:53

It's too late now.

0:18:530:18:54

William the Conqueror's guts are going to explode.

0:18:540:18:57

I should've mentioned that.

0:18:570:18:59

Bad Rattus for not reminding me. The boys - oblivious to it.

0:18:590:19:02

They carry on with their thieving but that's affected Rowan.

0:19:020:19:06

She doesn't want to go near the coffin.

0:19:060:19:08

She doesn't want to get covered in blood and guts and why should she?

0:19:080:19:11

BELL

0:19:110:19:13

30 seconds remaining.

0:19:130:19:14

Thank you. 30 seconds remaining. It's neck and neck for the boys.

0:19:140:19:18

Rowan doesn't look like she's going to take much more treasure.

0:19:180:19:21

Although she's got a bit at the end that she's comfortable with.

0:19:210:19:24

She's working her way feverishly, she's got it,

0:19:240:19:28

but the building's now on fire. They've got to get out of there.

0:19:280:19:32

This game is nearly over.

0:19:320:19:33

They need to get out of there quickly and finish the job.

0:19:330:19:37

BUZZER

0:19:370:19:39

The game is over.

0:19:390:19:40

That piece won't count from Zeke. The boys have finished all square.

0:19:400:19:44

Welcome back, Gory Gamers. Back behind your podiums.

0:19:440:19:47

Rowan, you had three pieces.

0:19:470:19:48

One of which was the wrong colour, so you actually got two points.

0:19:480:19:52

Ashley and Zeke, you got four each.

0:19:520:19:55

So, Ashley, help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:19:550:19:57

Zeke, help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:19:580:20:01

William's fat body really did explode at his funeral.

0:20:020:20:06

His burial was too long after his death

0:20:060:20:08

and his body had bloated due to the warm weather.

0:20:080:20:10

Must have been disgusting.

0:20:100:20:12

I take it you've never seen a rotten horse carcass explode.

0:20:120:20:15

That's even more brilliant!

0:20:150:20:17

In many ways, we are so very different, aren't we, Rattus?

0:20:170:20:21

We are.

0:20:210:20:23

Time for the final round.

0:20:230:20:24

Over to the Gory Grid one last time to find out who we've got.

0:20:240:20:28

It's the Vile Victorians. Good day.

0:20:280:20:31

Ah, well, no quirky quiz in our final round.

0:20:310:20:34

It's straight to our all play game

0:20:340:20:35

and what a scary one we've got for you.

0:20:350:20:38

Everybody, get back down that Time Sewer.

0:20:380:20:42

Well done, Zeke.

0:20:420:20:43

There we go.

0:20:440:20:45

Cheerio, Ashley.

0:20:450:20:47

Aw, it stinks. This is manky.

0:20:490:20:52

When Queen Victoria was no more than a child,

0:20:520:20:54

grave robbing was a common crime.

0:20:540:20:56

The bodies were sold to surgeons

0:20:560:20:58

who wanted to learn more about the human body.

0:20:580:21:00

It's time to play -

0:21:000:21:02

Your Vile Victorian challenge

0:21:070:21:09

is to steal three bodies from the graveyard.

0:21:090:21:11

Get them through the railings onto the carts,

0:21:110:21:13

find the key to the cemetery gate,

0:21:130:21:15

and get them to the surgeon's table. If you hear this noise -

0:21:150:21:18

WHISTLE

0:21:180:21:20

then you must rush back to the cemetery and hide

0:21:200:21:22

so the policeman doesn't spot you.

0:21:220:21:24

A second whistle means you can go again.

0:21:240:21:26

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

0:21:260:21:29

and grab their dodgy money is the winner.

0:21:290:21:32

Three, two, one.

0:21:320:21:34

BUZZER

0:21:340:21:36

So, here we go with Victorian Grave Robbers.

0:21:360:21:39

Through the railings.

0:21:390:21:40

And Zeke's going for the

0:21:400:21:42

"hold it round the back and yank it" technique.

0:21:420:21:45

It's almost like he's trying to do the Heimlich manoeuvre, there, Dave.

0:21:450:21:49

Yeah, it's a bit late for that.

0:21:490:21:51

I don't think that corpse has any chance of coming back to life.

0:21:510:21:54

Rowan, unfortunately, is stuck here.

0:21:540:21:56

Now, oh, well done. Well done, Rowan. Now, onto the wobbly trolley.

0:21:560:22:01

Onto the wobbly trolley and Ashley has made it to the railings.

0:22:010:22:05

He's got to unlock that gate.

0:22:050:22:07

And there he goes. Ooh, he's like a safecracker, isn't he?

0:22:070:22:10

He just needs to take the body off the trolley,

0:22:100:22:13

and get it through that gate.

0:22:130:22:15

Oh, dear me. He thinks he's got to wheel the trolley in.

0:22:150:22:18

Well, you know, he's not going to get penalised for that.

0:22:180:22:21

I have to say that that trolley's not hampered him.

0:22:210:22:24

-Not yet.

-He's off.

-He's off and running.

0:22:240:22:26

He's got one corpse, he's gone back for another.

0:22:260:22:29

He's hungry for corpse.

0:22:290:22:30

WHISTLE

0:22:300:22:33

Now, there is the policeman's whistle.

0:22:330:22:35

They've got to get out of sight very quickly, here.

0:22:350:22:38

They need to... I'd hurry up if I were you, Rowan.

0:22:380:22:40

You need to make no sound

0:22:400:22:42

cos if you get caught grave robbing,

0:22:420:22:44

you're looking at life imprisonment.

0:22:440:22:47

I'll actually drop my voice a little bit here, as well.

0:22:470:22:51

Just in case I were to give them away.

0:22:510:22:53

He is a very, very efficient-looking policeman.

0:22:530:22:57

WHISTLE

0:22:570:22:58

He's missed them, though. He's missed them.

0:22:580:23:00

They've escaped life imprisonment so that's good news.

0:23:000:23:03

Back to grave robbing.

0:23:030:23:04

And Zeke's rifling through his trousers, looking for the key.

0:23:040:23:08

Zeke, notice, didn't take his trolley through,

0:23:080:23:10

and as a result, has made up quite a bit of ground there.

0:23:100:23:14

There's a bit of a fog in the air.

0:23:140:23:16

There was always a bit of a fog in those days.

0:23:160:23:18

Fogs used to come down and just settle.

0:23:180:23:21

All sorts of shenanigans you could get away with.

0:23:210:23:25

This sort of caper for a kick-off.

0:23:250:23:27

Bit of fog, grave robbers are out in force

0:23:270:23:29

and thank goodness for us they were because we wouldn't have this game.

0:23:290:23:33

Now, then. Where are we?

0:23:330:23:35

Zeke is wrestling with a man who looks like he's just played golf.

0:23:350:23:39

-Oh, he's off his trolley! He's off his trolley!

-Oh, dear me.

0:23:390:23:43

But there we go.

0:23:430:23:45

Ashley is doing very well. He's insisting on taking that trolley.

0:23:450:23:49

This is where it's going to cost him

0:23:490:23:51

cos Zeke has just nipped through with that second body.

0:23:510:23:55

Down now for the third corpse.

0:23:550:23:56

But he's been caught. He's been caught by Zeke now.

0:23:560:23:59

Rowan struggling there with her trolley.

0:23:590:24:01

I should point out at this stage that

0:24:010:24:04

the trolleys have an off-centred wheel.

0:24:040:24:07

And that's not accidental, Dave.

0:24:070:24:08

We've fixed the trolleys

0:24:080:24:10

so they're almost impossible to push evenly across the terrain.

0:24:100:24:14

You're right.

0:24:140:24:15

It's very interesting to see the different strategies.

0:24:150:24:18

And now Zeke is in the lead!

0:24:180:24:21

Ashley bringing his trolley through.

0:24:210:24:23

That is really going to cost him cos Zeke has the bag.

0:24:230:24:25

All he has to do is get the trolley down the other end,

0:24:250:24:28

and he's won it.

0:24:280:24:30

Ashley is nowhere to be seen

0:24:300:24:32

and Zeke passes through the railings like a ghost.

0:24:320:24:34

Celebrates in a slightly muted way.

0:24:340:24:37

I have to say, Ashley will be kicking himself

0:24:370:24:39

when he watches that back.

0:24:390:24:41

Welcome back. What a good game.

0:24:410:24:44

Very good game.

0:24:440:24:45

-Zeke, you've won yourself another Year Sphere.

-Cool.

0:24:450:24:48

You've got nowhere to put it.

0:24:480:24:49

I suggest you grab yourself one and give it to me to hold on to.

0:24:490:24:53

There we go. I'll look after that. I'll leave it there.

0:24:530:24:56

It's not going to be tampered with.

0:24:560:24:59

No-one's every beaten the podium before. Excellent work.

0:24:590:25:03

Can I just point out to viewers that

0:25:030:25:05

however badly you're doing at school,

0:25:050:25:07

grave robbing is not a sensible career option.

0:25:070:25:10

-I think they knew that.

-Well, you'd hope so, wouldn't you?

0:25:100:25:13

Time to count those Year Spheres.

0:25:130:25:15

Remember, AD dates are added to your total,

0:25:150:25:18

and BC dates are subtracted from it.

0:25:180:25:20

So, you can still win if you get lucky with the Spheres.

0:25:200:25:24

Ashley, let's open up your Sphere.

0:25:240:25:26

London's first flushing loo opened to the public.

0:25:300:25:34

Ashley, that gives you 1,852 points.

0:25:340:25:36

Rowan, let's see what you've got.

0:25:360:25:39

Oh, dear me.

0:26:330:26:39

That's a big number.

0:26:390:26:41

despite me constantly telling him it's not good enough,

0:26:470:26:49

has been plucked out of the Time Sewers by my hairy friend here.

0:26:490:26:53

What's the big prize?

I'm sorry, viewers, I will be having stern words afterwards.

0:27:110:27:15

There you go, Zeke. Well done.

0:27:150:27:17

Rattus plays a new warm-up game called Doc Doc, which involves tasting some pretty revolting stuff - he thinks it's yummy, Dave thinks it's disgusting. There are battles to be won, loot to be looted and a night-time raid in a graveyard.
