Hello and welcome to Gory Games with me, Rattus Rattus,

0:00:240:00:28

and my sidekick, Dave Lamb.

0:00:280:00:31

You so know it's the other way round.

0:00:310:00:34

It looks like my sidekick wants a go at hosting, everybody.

0:00:340:00:38

Well, just this once.

0:00:380:00:40

Welcome to my show, Gory Games, where we test your knowledge of horrible histories

0:00:400:00:45

with quirky quizzes and of course, gory games.

0:00:450:00:47

So let's meet today's horrible historians.

0:00:470:00:51

-Hi, I'm Emily.

-Hi, I'm Ross.

-Hi, I'm India.

0:00:510:00:56

What episode of Gory Games would be complete

0:00:560:00:58

without one of my trademark games to get the ball rolling?

0:00:580:01:01

I can feel a headache coming on.

0:01:010:01:03

This is a Middle Ages game I like to call Fish Poolet.

0:01:030:01:07

It's getting worse.

0:01:070:01:09

When people went to the toilets in a castle, their poop would go into the moat.

0:01:090:01:13

The fish in the moat would eat the poop,

0:01:130:01:15

the people in the castle would then eat the fish, thereby eating their own poop.

0:01:150:01:20

-Ha-ha-ha! How funny is that?

-Not at all.

0:01:200:01:24

One of these five fish is straight from a pooey moat.

0:01:240:01:28

So Emily, Ross, India, you three have to take turns eating a fish

0:01:280:01:33

until someone identifies the pooey one. Ha-ha-ha!

0:01:330:01:36

That's not going to happen.

0:01:360:01:38

-Oooh!

-Watch out for the fish I dropped earlier.

0:01:380:01:42

It's OK. A pooey fish broke my fall.

0:01:420:01:46

Oh, you found it! Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!

0:01:460:01:50

I'm going to need a change of shirt. Has anyone got any headache pills? I suddenly don't feel very well.

0:01:500:01:55

Right. Emily, Ross, India, you're playing to win Year Spheres.

0:01:560:02:00

Each Year Sphere contains a historical date and at the end of the show

0:02:000:02:04

your Year Sphere dates will be added up with AD dates being added to your total

0:02:040:02:09

and BC dates being subtracted from it.

0:02:090:02:12

So if these were your Year Spheres, your total would be, Rattus?

0:02:120:02:15

Erm, now let me think. 1215 minus 480. Carry the seven, divide by 17.

0:02:150:02:22

-Add the number you first thought of...

-It's 735.

0:02:220:02:25

I was almost there!

0:02:250:02:27

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

0:02:270:02:31

Which is a real corker, and I should know because I chose it.

0:02:310:02:35

Right, we're off, and to find out what this round's about, it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:02:350:02:40

Rrrrr! The Putrid Pirates it be.

0:02:400:02:44

And here are your four pirate topics.

0:02:440:02:47

Execution, Sadie the Goat, Black Beard and Toilets.

0:02:470:02:51

Emily, you get to pick first in this round. Pick away.

0:02:510:02:55

Black Beard.

0:02:550:02:57

'Tis I, Black Beard the pirate. Here be my question.

0:02:570:03:02

How many wives did I have?

0:03:020:03:04

A: One, B: Eight, or C: 14.

0:03:040:03:09

Let's see your answers now.

0:03:090:03:11

Interesting. Emily and Ross going for B. India on her own with C. Let's find out who's right.

0:03:120:03:18

The answer is C. 14. Rrrrr!

0:03:180:03:22

Well, if an angry pirate asks you to marry him, I guess you say yes!

0:03:220:03:26

You're off the mark with one point. Ross, your turn to pick a topic.

0:03:260:03:31

-Execution, please.

-Execution.

0:03:310:03:34

How was pirate, Colin Dolphin, executed?

0:03:340:03:38

Was he A: Fed to sharks.

0:03:380:03:41

B: Buried up to his neck in sand and drowned by the tide coming in.

0:03:410:03:46

Or C: Made to walk the plank.

0:03:460:03:49

Interesting. A complete spread of answers. Let's see who's right.

0:03:490:03:54

The answer is B.

0:03:540:03:56

He was buried up to his neck in sand and drowned by the tide coming in.

0:03:560:04:01

So next time you bury your dad in the sand, don't forget about it!

0:04:010:04:05

Make sure you dig him out!

0:04:050:04:07

-India, your turn to choose the next topic.

-Toilets.

-Toilets.

0:04:070:04:10

That is a question from my dear friend, Rattus Rattus.

0:04:100:04:14

Where did pirates go to the toilet?

0:04:140:04:17

Was it A: In a rope cage hanging over the side of the ship.

0:04:170:04:21

B: In the hull of the ship, surrounded by rats.

0:04:210:04:26

Or C: Through a hole in the bottom of the ship.

0:04:260:04:30

Again, a complete spread of answers.

0:04:300:04:33

Well, Rattus, what's the answer?

0:04:330:04:36

A. In a rope cage hanging over the side of the ship.

0:04:360:04:40

Us rats just went wherever. Sometimes in the stew.

0:04:400:04:43

Don't tell them again, Rattus.

0:04:430:04:45

OK. It's all square. One point apiece with one question remaining in this round.

0:04:450:04:51

It's a question about Sadie the Goat.

0:04:510:04:54

A famous pirate in the 1800s was called Sadie the Goat.

0:04:540:04:59

But how did she get her nickname?

0:04:590:05:02

A: Because she would headbutt victims and rob them.

0:05:020:05:05

B: Because she liked to eat cloth.

0:05:050:05:08

Or C: Because she wore a goat's tail for good luck.

0:05:080:05:12

Not agreeing on anything, these three. Let's find out what the actual answer is.

0:05:120:05:17

A. Sadie the Goat would headbutt victims and rob them.

0:05:170:05:21

Pirates' nicknames tended to be fairly obvious.

0:05:210:05:24

I'm Pull out your heart and eat you for supper Jack.

0:05:240:05:28

But seeing as we're friends, you can just call me Pull out your heart and eat you for supper.

0:05:280:05:32

Ha-ha-ha!

0:05:320:05:34

-Sorry.

-So Ross, you've won the quiz.

0:05:340:05:37

Time to chose your Year Sphere from the rodent propelled trolley.

0:05:370:05:42

Here's hoping your sphere doesn't contain a Stone Age date worth a few million minus points.

0:05:420:05:48

Winning the quiz means Ross is automatically through to play the Pirate Game.

0:05:480:05:54

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

0:05:540:05:57

It's a single player silly game.

0:06:000:06:02

So Ross, off you slither down the time sewer.

0:06:020:06:07

There he goes. Go on!

0:06:070:06:09

-Oh, it stinks!

-It does I'm afraid.

0:06:090:06:12

Urgh!

0:06:120:06:14

Pirate ships were always infested with nasty, thieving, disease-ridden rats.

0:06:140:06:18

-All right! All right!

-They were. This game is one of my favourites.

0:06:180:06:23

It's time to play Whack a Rat.

0:06:230:06:26

I do not like the sound of this one little bit.

0:06:260:06:30

Whack 15 rats in the time limit to win the Year Sphere. Your time starts now!

0:06:300:06:34

So every direct hit score and the rat body count will appear in the top left hand corner of your screen.

0:06:340:06:40

-This is going to be a very difficult experience for my co-commentator, Rattus Rattus.

-I'm afraid it is.

0:06:400:06:46

This game is sick and not in a good way.

0:06:460:06:49

It's not fair! The RSPCA doesn't have a rat department.

0:06:490:06:53

It's no good. I can't watch.

0:06:530:06:55

I'll take it from here, Rattus, you're all right.

0:06:580:07:00

So not too many rats showing themselves at the moment.

0:07:000:07:03

Ross is doing as best he can with that heavy club which really does inflict some damage.

0:07:030:07:09

There's one with an eye patch on! He's taken one right on the head!

0:07:090:07:14

-Stop the game! Stop the game!

-It's bash the rat not bash the commentator.

0:07:140:07:18

I'm afraid we've lost Rattus in the commentary box. It's just me at this point.

0:07:240:07:28

Oh, there's a double!

0:07:280:07:30

Lovely! There's another rat getting hit.

0:07:300:07:32

It's absolute rat carnage out here!

0:07:320:07:35

That one was very cheekily wiggling his nose as he came out of his hole.

0:07:350:07:39

He doesn't want to do that because he'll find his snout gets bashed right through his head.

0:07:390:07:43

That was my Great Uncle George!

0:07:430:07:45

-HOOTER

-It's all over.

0:07:450:07:49

15 rats have been given mild concussion and Ross is the champion.

0:07:490:07:53

Welcome back Ross. Well played. Select yourself a Year Sphere.

0:07:540:07:59

Your score was far from the record.

0:07:590:08:01

One pirate ship sailed from Europe to South America

0:08:010:08:04

and killed 4,000 rats on one journey.

0:08:040:08:08

4,000? That's more rats than I've got first cousins. Well, almost!

0:08:080:08:14

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

0:08:140:08:18

It's the Awful Egyptians.

0:08:180:08:21

Four questions again and here are your four Egyptian topics.

0:08:210:08:25

Tutankhamun, Egyptian Gods, Burials, and Happiness.

0:08:250:08:29

Ross, it's your turn to pick first. What's it going to be.

0:08:290:08:32

Egyptian Gods, please.

0:08:320:08:34

Egyptian Gods. That is a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:08:340:08:38

True or false, the Egyptian god Bastet had a human body

0:08:380:08:43

but the head of a dog?

0:08:430:08:45

Is that true or false?

0:08:450:08:46

Ross and Emily going for false, India for true. Rattus, what's the answer?

0:08:460:08:52

It's false. She actually had the head of a cat.

0:08:520:08:55

RATTUS SPITS

0:08:550:08:57

She was the god of cats. Boo!

0:08:570:09:00

It was Anubis, the god of the dead, who had the head of a dog.

0:09:000:09:03

So hopefully, he chased Bastet all around the place.

0:09:030:09:06

-That would be brilliant!

-And our apologies to any cats who might be watching.

0:09:060:09:11

RATTUS SPITS

0:09:110:09:13

-So India, your turn to choose a topic.

-Burials, please.

0:09:130:09:17

-Let's hear your question.

-Is this true or false?

0:09:170:09:20

Burial chambers contained a toilet for the dead pharaoh?

0:09:200:09:24

Emily and Ross agreeing on true. India going for false. Let's hear who's right.

0:09:250:09:30

I can tell you the answer is true.

0:09:300:09:35

I suppose mummies were wrapped in toilet paper!

0:09:350:09:38

-Ha-ha-ha!

-Thanks, Rattus.

-You're funny.

-Thank you.

0:09:380:09:42

So Emily and Ross with two points. India yet to score.

0:09:420:09:45

But two questions left so you can catch up in this round.

0:09:450:09:49

-Emily, your turn to choose a topic.

-Tutankhamun, please.

-Tutankhamun.

0:09:490:09:54

True or false.

0:09:540:09:56

When Tutankhamun died, his widow, Mrs Tutankhamun, married his uncle.

0:09:560:10:01

Is that true or false?

0:10:010:10:03

Well, India and Ross going for true.

0:10:030:10:06

Emily on her own with false. Let's find out.

0:10:060:10:10

It's true and worse still, Tutankhamun's uncle was also Mrs Tutankhamun's grandfather.

0:10:100:10:16

Yes, he married his granddaughter. It's true.

0:10:160:10:19

My sister/cousin/wife told me.

0:10:190:10:21

Now, that's a happy family!

0:10:210:10:25

One question to go this round. Ross, you have three points so if you were to get this question right,

0:10:250:10:30

you would automatically win the Year Sphere.

0:10:300:10:33

The final category is Happiness.

0:10:330:10:36

True or false.

0:10:370:10:38

Bes was the Egyptian god of happiness and his wife was a monkey.

0:10:380:10:43

Emily and India going for true. Ross on his own with false.

0:10:430:10:47

What's the answer?

0:10:470:10:50

It's false. Of course it is.

0:10:500:10:52

Don't be ridiculous. His wife was a hippo.

0:10:520:10:55

I once said to my wife, "I'm so happy, I feel like the god of happiness."

0:10:550:10:59

She said to me, "Are you calling me a hippo?" You can't win, can you?!

0:10:590:11:03

Ross, that was remarkable. You have just won the round with a maximum score of four points.

0:11:030:11:08

You've won another Year Sphere. Choose away.

0:11:080:11:11

Let's just hope your Year Sphere doesn't contain Dave's birth date.

0:11:110:11:16

That's well Stone Age! Worth a few million minus bonus points!

0:11:160:11:20

-Yes.

-Sorry.

-Winning the quiz means that Ross is automatically through to play the Egyptian Game.

0:11:200:11:26

But will he be alone or will everyone get to play? Let's find out.

0:11:260:11:31

It's an All Play brainy game

0:11:340:11:36

so the lot of you, get down that time sewer.

0:11:360:11:40

Go on, India, it's not too stinky. In you go.

0:11:400:11:43

Ross, you know the way by now.

0:11:430:11:45

It's thought that it took 25,000 men five years

0:11:450:11:49

to build each of the great pyramids.

0:11:490:11:51

Let's hope they're a bit quicker than that! It's time to play Pyramid Puzzle.

0:11:510:11:55

Your challenge is to work out which block goes where. First to finish wins the Year Sphere.

0:11:550:12:01

Ready, steady, get building! There they go.

0:12:010:12:04

There they go. A nice cagey opening.

0:12:040:12:08

There's India wrestling with what looks to be an enormous piece of pyramid.

0:12:080:12:14

Look at that. Ross seems to have two bits on his base plinth already.

0:12:140:12:21

Whether they're the right bits remains to be seen.

0:12:210:12:23

I think that's the technique for this game,

0:12:230:12:26

is to get several pieces on the base board early on

0:12:260:12:30

and shunt them around until they fit.

0:12:300:12:33

It's a very interesting theory, Rattus.

0:12:330:12:36

It also brings all the pieces near to you. It can save time in the long run.

0:12:360:12:40

There's Emily, thinking very hard.

0:12:400:12:42

Hello! Ross has given up. No, he's just cleared the base to start again.

0:12:420:12:48

That's a big piece. That's a good idea. The bigger pieces would seem to be better at the bottom.

0:12:480:12:54

There. Well, it looks as if we have the first layer complete from India.

0:12:540:13:00

That's fantastic!

0:13:000:13:02

I notice a situation developing here.

0:13:020:13:04

The pyramid seems to be being erected slightly skewiff.

0:13:040:13:09

It won't count against her but look at that. There it is.

0:13:090:13:12

It's not square on its plinth.

0:13:120:13:14

That's certainly a can't pyramid, Dave.

0:13:140:13:17

I must just say that the BBC,

0:13:170:13:19

all the anti-cat views aired by my colleague are not held by the BBC.

0:13:190:13:23

Those views are his and his alone.

0:13:230:13:25

-No. Can't. Can't.

-I'm sorry, I've completely misheard you there.

0:13:250:13:29

-I've been to the pyramids, you know.

-Have you?

0:13:290:13:32

Yes. Well, the Pyramids Leisure Centre in Bracknell.

0:13:320:13:35

While you're talking about leisure centres, Ross has finished the first layer of his pyramid.

0:13:350:13:42

India may have to hurry a bit now because she's got competition.

0:13:420:13:46

Ross is hard on her heels.

0:13:460:13:48

Yes. India looked as if she was going to rush into the lead, but Ross has caught up.

0:13:480:13:53

That's absolutely crucial. India has nailed that level of the pyramid.

0:13:530:13:58

She's only got three bits left to fit in.

0:13:580:14:00

Emily. Let's say she's comfortably third. Good enough for a bronze in the Olympics.

0:14:000:14:05

But hang on! There's the penultimate piece into place.

0:14:050:14:08

Here it comes, the top of the pyramid.

0:14:080:14:11

India's got it! India's got the top!

0:14:110:14:13

India has done it, Rattus.

0:14:130:14:15

India has built a pyramid.

0:14:150:14:17

India, collect a Year Sphere.

0:14:210:14:23

The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the so-called Seven Wonders of the Ancient World

0:14:230:14:28

and the only one that's still relatively intact today.

0:14:280:14:31

To a rat, the Seven Wonders are all skips behind supermarkets!

0:14:310:14:35

Yes, I'm sure they are. You all did fantastically well.

0:14:350:14:38

India, you've now got a Year Sphere. Ross, you've got three. Emily yet to score, but there's plenty of time.

0:14:380:14:44

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

0:14:440:14:47

It's the Vile Victorians. Good day.

0:14:470:14:50

Here are your four Victorian topics.

0:14:500:14:53

Schools, Victorian Firsts, Gadgets, and Inventions.

0:14:530:14:57

India, it's your turn to pick a topic first.

0:14:570:15:01

-Inventions, please.

-Inventions is a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:15:010:15:06

It is. Which of these was not a Victorian invention?

0:15:060:15:12

Was it A: Trains.

0:15:120:15:14

B: Cars.

0:15:140:15:16

Or C: Teddy Bears.

0:15:160:15:18

Ross and Emily agreeing on C. India on her own with A.

0:15:180:15:24

Rattus, What's the answer?

0:15:240:15:26

The answer is C, Teddy Bears,

0:15:260:15:29

which were invented the year after Victoria died.

0:15:290:15:32

-Just one year later?

-History can be cruel, Dave.

0:15:320:15:35

-History can be cruel.

-Awful.

0:15:350:15:37

-Emily, your turn to choose a topic.

-Schools, please.

-Schools.

0:15:370:15:42

Let's hear what that question is.

0:15:420:15:44

In Victorian schools, missing church was punished by what?

0:15:440:15:48

Was it A: Detention.

0:15:480:15:49

B: Beating with a strap.

0:15:490:15:51

Or C: Having to copy out the Bible.

0:15:510:15:54

Show me your letters now.

0:15:540:15:56

Everyone agreeing on B. Let's find out if you're all right.

0:15:560:16:01

The answer is B.

0:16:010:16:03

School children were beaten with a strap and I was too.

0:16:030:16:07

I'll never miss church again, I tell you that.

0:16:070:16:09

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

0:16:090:16:12

-Gadgets, please.

-Gadgets.

0:16:120:16:14

Pop Question. Pop Question. Pop Question. Pop Question.

0:16:140:16:19

This is a genuine Victorian contraption,

0:16:190:16:22

but what was this invention for?

0:16:220:16:25

Was it A: For making people look at a camera.

0:16:250:16:29

B: For scaring cats.

0:16:290:16:32

Or C: For storing the remains of a dead pet.

0:16:320:16:37

Let's see your answers now please.

0:16:370:16:39

Emily and Ross going for A. India going for C.

0:16:390:16:44

The answer is A. It was a device for making people look at early Victorian cameras.

0:16:440:16:49

Hence the phrase, "Watch the birdie." One more question remaining

0:16:490:16:52

and it's on Victorian Firsts.

0:16:520:16:55

In 1875, the first what opened in London?

0:16:560:17:00

Was it A: Roller Skating rink.

0:17:000:17:02

B: Ice skating rink.

0:17:020:17:05

Or C: A public toilet.

0:17:050:17:07

Total agreement once again. Everyone's going for C.

0:17:090:17:12

Let's find out if you're all right.

0:17:120:17:15

The answer is A.

0:17:150:17:17

The first roller skating rink was opened.

0:17:170:17:19

I can tell you, there were a few bruised bottoms that night!

0:17:190:17:22

Ha-ha-ha!

0:17:220:17:24

What?

0:17:240:17:26

He said "bottom"!

0:17:260:17:27

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

0:17:270:17:30

So that means that we have a tie between Emily and Ross. India, for now, you're history.

0:17:310:17:37

The other two of you, fingers on buzzers because we have the tiebreaker question.

0:17:370:17:43

Beginning with the letter N, what is the surname of the famous nurse

0:17:430:17:47

who helped soldiers in the Crimean War...

0:17:470:17:49

-BUZZER

-That's Emily.

-Nightingale.

0:17:490:17:53

It's Florence Nightingale. You're absolutely right.

0:17:530:17:56

That means you've won your first Year Sphere. Collect it please.

0:17:560:18:01

Emily, you're through to play the Victorian Game.

0:18:010:18:04

But will you play alone or will everyone get to play? Let's have a look now.

0:18:040:18:09

It's a Single Player brainy game.

0:18:120:18:15

-Emily, have you got your brain in?

-Yes.

-In that case, down that time sewer with you.

0:18:150:18:20

Bye!

0:18:200:18:22

Brunel was a genius.

0:18:240:18:26

He designed railways, steam ships and giant steel bridges.

0:18:260:18:30

But even geniuses have their off-days,

0:18:300:18:32

which is why in 1843, whilst performing a magic trick,

0:18:320:18:35

he got a coin lodged in his own throat.

0:18:350:18:38

-RATTUS COUGHS

-A bit like that!

0:18:380:18:42

Yes. I was wondering where my change had gone.

0:18:420:18:44

He eventually managed to dislodge it using a clever device.

0:18:440:18:48

It's time to play Barmy Brunel.

0:18:480:18:51

Your challenge is work out which cog goes where.

0:18:510:18:55

Once they're all in the right place, you can turn the wheel

0:18:550:18:58

and flip Brunel upside down to dislodge the coin and win your Year Sphere.

0:18:580:19:02

But be quick. You're against the clock, which is starting to tick now.

0:19:020:19:06

She's off and what she has to do here is find the correct cogs

0:19:060:19:10

to make the mechanism work and tip Barmy Brunel backwards

0:19:100:19:14

so that the coin comes out of his gullet.

0:19:140:19:17

That's absolutely right, Dave. Absolutely right.

0:19:170:19:21

This is a far trickier game than it first appears.

0:19:210:19:24

She's actually taking this very slowly which can often be a good thing.

0:19:240:19:29

But sometimes, it can be a very bad thing.

0:19:290:19:32

But I like the look of this one.

0:19:320:19:34

She's got to get a big cog in there in that first position

0:19:340:19:37

and this looks as if it'll do the job.

0:19:370:19:39

It certainly does, Dave.

0:19:390:19:41

It has done the job. Lovely! That's the first one in place.

0:19:410:19:44

So a good start. A very good start from Emily.

0:19:440:19:47

Now she's looking for the second piece of the cog jigsaw.

0:19:470:19:51

What she needs is a fairly small one because the proximity of that spike

0:19:510:19:58

to the main cog means that we can only fit a little cog in that gap

0:19:580:20:02

and that is not going to fit.

0:20:020:20:03

I would stake my reputation as a commentator on that and it hasn't fitted.

0:20:030:20:08

You don't have a reputation as a commentator.

0:20:080:20:11

That's why I was prepared to stake it.

0:20:110:20:14

Once she's fixed it, can we put Dave in it?! Just for a laugh.

0:20:140:20:19

-Just for a laugh.

-I don't find that funny.

0:20:190:20:23

That's too big. That's too big.

0:20:240:20:27

What she needs is one of the smaller cogs in that position.

0:20:270:20:31

I can't understand why she doesn't leave the cogs on the floor.

0:20:320:20:36

-There we go! That's the perfect one.

-She put it back!

0:20:360:20:39

That was the perfect cog and she walked away from it again.

0:20:390:20:42

I'm afraid that's just too big. Less than 30 seconds to go.

0:20:420:20:46

It doesn't look good. She experimentedwith the right cog

0:20:460:20:49

and now she's going through all the wrong ones again.

0:20:490:20:53

Time's running out for Emily. There's a grim inevitability about the conclusion here.

0:20:530:20:58

That's a little cog. That's too tiny.

0:20:580:21:01

That cog is too small. It's not going to happen for her, I don't think.

0:21:010:21:05

But at least she's got that cog in place.

0:21:050:21:09

I'm sure it's going to be a cold consolation when Emily realises that her Year Sphere has gone begging.

0:21:090:21:15

Welcome back, Emily. Bad luck. Bad luck. No Year Sphere this time.

0:21:160:21:20

Brunel and his father designed and built the first ever tunnel

0:21:200:21:25

to pass under a river anywhere in the world.

0:21:250:21:27

It was beneath the River Thames in London and even though it first opened nearly 170 years ago,

0:21:270:21:32

it's still in use today as a railway tunnel.

0:21:320:21:35

-I never take the train.

-Because it's healthier to walk?

0:21:350:21:38

-I'm a rat. If I get on a train, people scream.

-Sorry, I forgot about that.

0:21:380:21:42

Time for the final round now.

0:21:420:21:45

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

0:21:450:21:48

It's the Terrible Tudors.

0:21:480:21:51

No quirky quiz in our final round. It's straight to play our All Play Tudor End Game.

0:21:510:21:56

And it is a silly one.

0:21:560:21:59

Everybody get down that time sewer.

0:21:590:22:03

In you go, go on.

0:22:030:22:05

It's just a bit of a bad stink. Nothing to be afraid of.

0:22:050:22:08

You know the way now, Emily.

0:22:080:22:10

Urgh!

0:22:110:22:12

Oh!

0:22:120:22:15

It's time to play Who Ate All The Pies?

0:22:150:22:17

I'm sure you never noticed,

0:22:170:22:19

but in his later life, Henry VIII got a bit fat.

0:22:190:22:23

It certainly crept up on me.

0:22:230:22:25

I looked down one day and boom, couldn't see my feet.

0:22:250:22:28

Well, that was largely because old Henry was rather keen on pies.

0:22:280:22:33

Did someone say pies?

0:22:330:22:35

Let's go over and play Who Ate All The Pies?

0:22:350:22:39

You have to fetch pies and lob them into Henry's mouth

0:22:390:22:42

and to help you in no way whatsoever, we've attached you to bungee cords.

0:22:420:22:47

The person who gets the most pies in their Henry's mouth in the time limit gets the Year Sphere.

0:22:470:22:53

Get ready, because it's pie time.

0:22:530:22:55

Here we go with Who Ate All The Pies.

0:22:550:22:59

That first round of pies going absolutely nowhere.

0:22:590:23:02

-But it's early days.

-It certainly is early days, Dave.

0:23:020:23:05

They seem to be enjoying themselves even though they're not very good.

0:23:050:23:09

Having said that, that is a point for India.

0:23:090:23:12

It's all in the wrist action on this game

0:23:120:23:14

and pointing and aiming and aiming and pointing.

0:23:140:23:18

They don't seem to be aiming very well at the moment.

0:23:180:23:21

That's an interesting shot from Ross.

0:23:210:23:23

-He sort of jumps up and throws it over.

-There's Emily poised there. To go backwards!

0:23:240:23:29

Whoa! That's a ping back and a half. Look at that!

0:23:290:23:33

India has actually dropped her pie but she's picked it up

0:23:330:23:36

and hoiked it forward and it's gone nowhere.

0:23:360:23:38

-Good to see the pieman, isn't it?

-Nice to see the pieman.

0:23:380:23:42

He's a very generous pieman. He gives his pies away.

0:23:420:23:46

-And he charges very little.

-Nothing at all I believe.

0:23:460:23:49

We're lucky to get this fellow. You don't see many Tudor piemen around these days.

0:23:490:23:54

But this one is very committed. He lives his whole life dressed like that and who are we to judge?

0:23:540:24:00

There we go! What a lovely shot from Emily.

0:24:000:24:02

She takes herself into a two way tie for the lead.

0:24:020:24:05

So Emily and India with one apiece. Ross, nothing as yet.

0:24:050:24:09

That was an underarm from India. Interesting technique, the underarm.

0:24:090:24:13

Very rarely finds its mark. Ross is going for it as well.

0:24:130:24:17

We're running short of time

0:24:170:24:20

and I sense an added desperation in some of this flinging.

0:24:200:24:24

Particularly that bit of flinging! That was extraordinary.

0:24:240:24:27

Emily scores! That could be absolutely crucial. She's gone into a very late lead.

0:24:270:24:33

Was that the pie that won her the game?

0:24:330:24:35

-Don't chuck them all! Dave promised me the leftovers.

-I did.

0:24:350:24:39

There are seconds remaining. I think Emily might have this.

0:24:390:24:44

There's a last chance and that's gone way over Henry's head.

0:24:440:24:49

-It's all over here and Emily has won the round.

-Brilliant!

0:24:490:24:53

Gory Gamers, return to your podiums please.

0:24:540:24:57

Fantastic. How did you feel it went?

0:24:570:25:00

Very frustrating but very fun.

0:25:000:25:02

-Good. And Emily?

-I kept going flat on my face.

0:25:020:25:04

And you were pinging back very fast.

0:25:040:25:07

Emily, come and collect yourself the final Year Sphere.

0:25:070:25:12

-Wonderful.

-Are we almost done because someone's going to have to clean up those pies

0:25:120:25:16

and that someone is me! Yummy!

0:25:160:25:19

Honestly, where do you put all the food you eat?

0:25:190:25:22

Ultimately, it all ends up in the sewer. You see, what happens...

0:25:220:25:25

We know how it all works.

0:25:250:25:28

OK, time to count up those Year Spheres and remember,

0:25:280:25:31

AD years are added to your total and BC years are subtracted.

0:25:310:25:36

So even thought you've got different numbers of spheres, anyone can still win at this stage.

0:25:360:25:41

Emily, let's see your first sphere.

0:25:410:25:43

1901 AD. The death of Queen Victoria.

0:25:430:25:47

Let's have a look at the second one.

0:25:470:25:49

1536 AD. The year Anne Boleyn was executed.

0:25:490:25:52

That gives you a total of 3,437. A very good score.

0:25:520:25:57

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

0:25:570:26:00

1666 AD. The Great Fire of London.

0:26:000:26:04

399 BC. Greek philosopher Socrateswas executed that year.

0:26:050:26:11

Let's have a look at the third one.

0:26:110:26:14

1805 AD. The Battle of Trafalgar.

0:26:140:26:15

That gives you a total of 3,072. So you're just shy of Emily.

0:26:150:26:21

India, it's all down to you. Let's have a look at that last sphere.

0:26:210:26:25

It's 30 BC. The death of Queen Cleopatra.

0:26:250:26:30

That means today's winner with 3,437 points is Emily,

0:26:300:26:35

who goes home with our star prize.

0:26:350:26:37

I'd just like to say that today's prize really is amazing.

0:26:370:26:41

Unfortunately, I can't because once again, it's some old tat

0:26:410:26:45

plucked out of the time sewer by my filthy friend here.

0:26:450:26:49

-What is the prize, Rattus?

-It's a Celtic prize

0:26:490:26:52

and it once belonged to the enemy of a Celtic warrior.

0:26:520:26:55

It's a severed head preserved with cedar oil.

0:26:550:26:58

Perfect for decorating your front door.

0:26:580:27:00

You're not seriously suggesting that Emily sticks that on her front door, are you?

0:27:000:27:05

It worked for the Celts. They loved to show them off.

0:27:050:27:08

Yes, but hang a severed head from your door nowadays,

0:27:080:27:11

and pretty quickly your friends are going to stop coming round.

0:27:110:27:14

But so will salesmen, that nosy neighbour and all those annoying relatives at Christmas.

0:27:140:27:19

Emily, I really am sorry. Try not to look at it too much, particularly before you go to sleep!

0:27:190:27:25

It just remains for me to say thanks to our winner, Emily,

0:27:250:27:29

thanks to our gallant runners-up, Ross and India,

0:27:290:27:32

and no thanks whatsoever to Rattus.

0:27:320:27:34

My absolute pleasure.

0:27:340:27:36

-You've been watching Gory Games. Goodbye.

-Goodbye.
