Rattus? Rattus?

0:00:020:00:03

You are unbelievable!

0:00:030:00:06

I mean, what more do I have to do?

0:00:060:00:09

Oh, I'm sorry, Dave. I can't help myself.

0:00:090:00:12

You're so selfish!

0:00:120:00:14

Just get such powerful cravings!

0:00:140:00:17

You don't know what it's like to be a rat.

0:00:170:00:19

And you don't know what it's like to be a human.

0:00:190:00:21

You should try putting yourself in my shoes, for once.

0:00:210:00:24

Oh. I already have.

0:00:240:00:25

HE SNIFFS Oh!

0:00:280:00:30

Rattus! Eugh!

0:00:300:00:32

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

0:00:360:00:39

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

0:00:390:00:42

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

0:00:420:00:45

# Better turn off This show ain't for you

0:00:450:00:48

# Still watching? Then let's test your brains

0:00:480:00:52

# With Horrible Histories Gory Games

0:00:520:00:54

# Horrible Histories Gory...

0:00:540:00:56

# ..Games! #

0:00:570:00:59

Hello and welcome to Gory Games.

0:00:590:01:01

Yes, the only game show on television

0:01:010:01:04

that's presented by a human and a rodent.

0:01:040:01:06

And there's a very good reason for that.

0:01:060:01:08

Yeah, adult humans are notoriously difficult to work with.

0:01:080:01:12

Not quite what I meant. Let's meet today's Horrible Historians.

0:01:120:01:16

Hi, my name is Leon and I'm from Bridlington.

0:01:160:01:19

Hello, I'm Ellen and I'm from County Down.

0:01:200:01:23

Hi, I'm Katherine and I'm from Hampshire.

0:01:240:01:27

Welcome, everybody. Right, you lot are playing to win Year Spheres.

0:01:310:01:35

The person with the highest year score at the end of the show

0:01:350:01:38

will win a putrid prize, as selected by our resident rodent.

0:01:380:01:42

Dave wouldn't know true quality if it splatted him in the face.

0:01:420:01:46

I might, you know! Time to crack on with Round One.

0:01:460:01:49

Let's find out what it's about by going over to the Gory Grid.

0:01:490:01:52

It's the Awful Egyptians.

0:01:550:01:58

And your four Egyptian topics are...

0:01:580:02:00

So, Leon, it's your turn to pick first this time. What will you have?

0:02:070:02:10

-Please can I have Cures?

-You certainly can.

0:02:100:02:13

What was the cure for sore throats in ancient Egypt?

0:02:130:02:16

Show me your answers, please.

0:02:240:02:26

Look at that, the girls agreeing on C.

0:02:260:02:28

Leon thinks it's A. What's the answer, please?

0:02:280:02:30

The answer is C.

0:02:300:02:33

Hot donkey wee was a cure for sore throats.

0:02:330:02:36

-SHE GULPS

-Eugh! Eugh! Ah!

0:02:390:02:42

Now, all I need is a cure for bad breath. Blargh!

0:02:420:02:45

Well, that's a point apiece for Ellen and Katherine. Good start.

0:02:450:02:50

-Ellen, your turn to pick.

-Could I have Cleopatra, please?

0:02:500:02:52

You certainly can.

0:02:520:02:54

When out sea fishing, Roman general Mark Antony

0:02:540:02:57

tried to impress Cleopatra.

0:02:570:02:59

He sneakily paid some fishermen to do what?

0:02:590:03:03

A - hold a shark for him to spear,

0:03:030:03:05

B - dress up as mermen,

0:03:050:03:07

C - put fish on his hooks?

0:03:070:03:10

Show me your answers now, please.

0:03:100:03:12

Again, the girls in agreement, Leon thinks it's C. Let's find out.

0:03:120:03:16

The answer is C.

0:03:160:03:19

Mark Antony paid the fishermen

0:03:190:03:21

to dive underwater and put fish that had already been caught

0:03:210:03:24

onto his hooks.

0:03:240:03:26

So, Leon, a point for you, everyone level pegging.

0:03:260:03:29

Katherine, it's your turn to pick.

0:03:290:03:31

-Can I have Demons, please?

-You certainly can.

0:03:310:03:33

-Unfortunately, that is a question from Rattus Rattus.

-Hmm? Oh!

0:03:330:03:37

What did ancient Egyptians use to lure demons out of the body?

0:03:370:03:42

HE CHUCKLES

0:03:440:03:45

HE CHUCKLES

0:03:470:03:49

Show me now!

0:03:510:03:52

OK, it's spelt out "bab," which I find quite amusing.

0:03:530:03:56

-Let's find out what the answer is. Rattus?

-The answer is...

0:03:560:03:59

HE LAUGHS

0:04:020:04:04

They put poo up your bottom to lure the demons out of your body.

0:04:040:04:08

-HE LAUGHS

-Yeah, it's true, Dave.

0:04:080:04:11

They thought the little demons were attracted to poop.

0:04:110:04:13

And I know one little demon who certainly is.

0:04:130:04:15

Well done, Ellen. That is a point for you.

0:04:170:04:19

There is one category left in this round, and it is Apis Bull.

0:04:190:04:23

We ancient Egyptians had a sacred bull called the Apis bull,

0:04:240:04:28

who we believed could tell the future.

0:04:280:04:31

What would we do when the bull reached its 28th birthday?

0:04:310:04:35

Show me your answers, please.

0:04:400:04:43

Leon thinks it's C, Ellen and Katherine think it's B.

0:04:430:04:46

What's the answer?

0:04:460:04:47

The answer is C.

0:04:470:04:49

We drowned the bull.

0:04:490:04:51

Bet it didn't see that coming.

0:04:510:04:53

Well, no, indeed. Congratulations, Leon.

0:04:530:04:55

That is an extra point for you, and at the end of the round,

0:04:550:04:58

we can see that we have a tie-breaker situation!

0:04:580:05:01

OK, Katherine. Just for now, you are history.

0:05:030:05:06

Leon and Ellen, as soon as you think you know the answer,

0:05:060:05:09

you can buzz in.

0:05:090:05:10

Beginning with the letter H, what sticky substance

0:05:100:05:13

did the Egyptians cover their slaves in to attract flies?

0:05:130:05:16

-Leon?

-Honey.

0:05:180:05:19

Honey is right, Leon. Congratulations!

0:05:190:05:21

You have won the quiz.

0:05:210:05:23

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

0:05:230:05:26

which means it's also time for me to say...

0:05:260:05:29

ECHOING: All hail the Potty Pyramid!

0:05:290:05:33

-Help yourself, Leon!

-Yes, choose well, Gory Gamer.

0:05:350:05:38

Indeed, because AD dates will be added to your total,

0:05:380:05:41

but BC dates, of course, will be subtracted from it.

0:05:410:05:45

There it is!

0:05:450:05:46

Oh, one of the quickest dabs I've ever seen!

0:05:460:05:49

It was a lightning dab. Do it again, Leon.

0:05:490:05:51

Oh, that was fast!

0:05:510:05:52

What a dab that was.

0:05:520:05:54

The first Year Sphere is on the podium,

0:05:540:05:56

we'll find out what's in there later.

0:05:560:05:58

Now, winning the Egyptian quiz means that Leon is automatically

0:05:580:06:01

through to play the Egyptian game, but will he be alone

0:06:010:06:03

or will the others get to play, too? Let's find out, shall we?

0:06:030:06:06

Oh, it's a Single Player. Leon, are you ready to play?

0:06:080:06:12

-Maybe.

-Maybe? I'm going to take that as a yes.

0:06:120:06:14

Get down that Time Sewer, please.

0:06:140:06:17

-Oh, Rattus, couldn't you have waited?

-I don't know what he means!

0:06:170:06:20

Back in Egyptian times, the famous tomb of Tutankhamen

0:06:200:06:24

was never looted. But good news, you can do it now!

0:06:240:06:27

It's time to play...

0:06:270:06:29

Your challenge is simple - break through the wall of the tomb

0:06:320:06:34

and find the loot. You've got four items to find.

0:06:340:06:37

If you can place each item on the right plinth

0:06:370:06:40

within the time limit, well, you've won yourself a Year Sphere.

0:06:400:06:43

In three, two, one...

0:06:430:06:45

HORN BLOWS

0:06:450:06:47

So, Leon dives straight for a loose block there

0:06:470:06:50

and pushes it aside as if it were made of foam.

0:06:500:06:52

-Which it definitely isn't.

-It definitely isn't.

0:06:520:06:55

Four items of treasure to find, then.

0:06:550:06:57

He searches the mummy, now he's into the guts.

0:06:570:06:59

And he's got one! That looks like the bracelet, Rattus.

0:06:590:07:02

-Certainly does.

-He can only get one at a time,

0:07:020:07:04

so he's back through the wall.

0:07:040:07:06

He pops the bracelet on the plinth.

0:07:060:07:09

Back into the treasure room now.

0:07:090:07:11

I'd like to be buried in a tomb full of treasure.

0:07:110:07:13

-You're talking about a cesspit, aren't you?

-I am indeed.

0:07:130:07:16

We're witnessing some first-class rummaging here, Rattus.

0:07:160:07:18

It's very impressive, Dave. Well, for a human.

0:07:180:07:21

That's rude, Rattus.

0:07:210:07:23

Humans rummage very nicely, thank you very much.

0:07:230:07:25

Oh! Treasure number two there, that's the leopard head.

0:07:250:07:29

It's a tight squeeze, with the leopard head in his hands.

0:07:290:07:31

He's thrown it on the floor! That's put a dent in it.

0:07:310:07:34

Two more left to find now.

0:07:340:07:35

Tomb builders often made collapsing stairways

0:07:370:07:39

to protect the tomb from robbers.

0:07:390:07:40

Well, either that or they were just rubbish builders.

0:07:400:07:43

Well, I suppose it could have been that, yes.

0:07:430:07:45

Nothing in that chest, by the look of it.

0:07:450:07:47

He's up against the clock, remember.

0:07:470:07:49

There's the third item!

0:07:490:07:50

He's got three,

0:07:500:07:52

and now he's walking on his hands like some sort of gymnast!

0:07:520:07:55

Come on, Leon. One more to go.

0:07:550:07:57

You know, Rattus, sometimes it was the people

0:07:570:07:59

who built the tombs that looted them.

0:07:590:08:01

That is despicable, disgraceful and...

0:08:010:08:03

-Well, actually, that's quite clever.

-It is quite clever.

0:08:030:08:06

He still hasn't checked that huge pile of pants on the floor.

0:08:060:08:09

King Tut was actually buried with

0:08:090:08:12

145 pairs of pants.

0:08:120:08:13

That's the real treasure right there.

0:08:130:08:16

Well, he's gravitating towards the undergarments

0:08:160:08:18

and he's got the final gong!

0:08:180:08:21

It's the mask. That's going to need a wash.

0:08:210:08:23

He's put it on the plinth, Year Sphere bagged.

0:08:230:08:26

I thought it went really well, especially at the last minute.

0:08:270:08:30

The hardest thing to find was this guy here.

0:08:300:08:33

Obviously not hard enough!

0:08:330:08:34

Hey, congratulations, Leon. You are indeed an excellent thief.

0:08:360:08:40

Help yourself.

0:08:400:08:41

Hey!

0:08:450:08:46

-Rattus, where have you been?

-I've been looting treasure.

0:08:460:08:49

I've swiped a pair of Tutankhamen's pants.

0:08:490:08:52

Is that really your idea of treasure? Old pants?

0:08:520:08:55

I will never understand you rats.

0:08:550:08:57

Well, I'll never begin to understand you humans.

0:08:570:09:00

-Give them here.

-No! No!

0:09:000:09:03

BOOM!

0:09:030:09:04

Rattus, I... I'm feeling kind of weird.

0:09:080:09:11

Yeah, Dave. Me, too!

0:09:110:09:13

-BOTH:

-Whaa!

0:09:140:09:18

We've swapped bodies!

0:09:180:09:20

I'm all dirty and hairy!

0:09:200:09:22

And I'm all clean and...not hairy.

0:09:220:09:25

It's like we've been the victims of some highly factually inaccurate

0:09:250:09:31

ancient Egyptian curse.

0:09:310:09:33

Oh, make it better, Rattus, make it better!

0:09:330:09:35

Pull yourself together, Dave. We've got a show to make.

0:09:350:09:38

Oh... Onto Round Two!

0:09:380:09:41

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

0:09:410:09:44

It's the Terrible Tudors.

0:09:470:09:49

And here are your all-important Tudor topics...

0:09:500:09:53

So, Ellen, it's your turn to pick first.

0:09:590:10:02

Could I have Executioners, please?

0:10:020:10:04

True or false? Tudor executioners were often paid a tip by the victim.

0:10:050:10:11

Let me see your answers, please.

0:10:110:10:13

What's the answer?

0:10:140:10:15

It's...true.

0:10:150:10:17

Yes, the person who was about to have his head chopped off

0:10:180:10:20

would often give their executioner coin,

0:10:200:10:23

in the hope that they would do a speedy and clean job.

0:10:230:10:26

-Heads or tails? Heads, you lose!

-HE LAUGHS

0:10:260:10:29

Yeah, if you could just do the scores for us?

0:10:300:10:33

So, that's a point to Leon and Ellen.

0:10:330:10:35

Oh, my arms are massive!

0:10:350:10:37

-I didn't like that.

-So, Katherine, it's your turn next.

0:10:390:10:43

-Can I have Elizabeth I?

-Of course you can.

0:10:430:10:45

True or false?

0:10:450:10:47

At her coronation, Queen Elizabeth I had a rat burned

0:10:470:10:51

to symbolise the releasing of demons.

0:10:510:10:53

Please be false, please be false!

0:10:530:10:56

Let me see those answers, please.

0:10:560:10:58

Oh, and we've all gone for false. What's the answer?

0:10:590:11:03

It's...false.

0:11:030:11:05

To symbolise the releasing of demons at her coronation,

0:11:050:11:08

Elizabeth had a cat burnt.

0:11:080:11:10

I love a story with a happy ending.

0:11:100:11:13

Rattus! Please.

0:11:130:11:16

Sorry, more points.

0:11:160:11:17

Whoa! Enormous arm.

0:11:170:11:20

Still not used to it.

0:11:200:11:21

So, Leon, your turn to pick a question.

0:11:220:11:25

Please can I have Football?

0:11:250:11:26

Football!

0:11:260:11:28

True or false?

0:11:280:11:30

In Tudor times, playing football killed more people

0:11:300:11:33

than practising sword fighting.

0:11:330:11:35

Let me see your answers, please.

0:11:350:11:38

You've all gone for true again.

0:11:380:11:40

What's the answer?

0:11:400:11:41

It's...true!

0:11:410:11:43

Whole villages would play each other and the goals would be a mile apart.

0:11:430:11:47

Only one rule - no weapons.

0:11:470:11:50

At kick-off, it all kicked off! Rargh!

0:11:500:11:54

Imagine that - footballers properly hurt, rather than just pretending.

0:11:570:12:01

Wow, Dave, first time something properly funny

0:12:010:12:03

has ever come out of your mouth.

0:12:030:12:05

Oh, hardy-ha! HE LAUGHS

0:12:050:12:07

-I'm getting used to these arms now.

-HE CHUCKLES

0:12:070:12:10

Don't get too used to them.

0:12:100:12:12

So, one last question and it's from...me!

0:12:120:12:17

Rattus Rattus, me.

0:12:170:12:20

True or false?

0:12:220:12:23

Young frogs covered in butter were swallowed

0:12:230:12:26

to cure asthma in Tudor times.

0:12:260:12:29

Let me see your answers, please.

0:12:290:12:30

And you've all gone for true again.

0:12:310:12:34

What's the answer?

0:12:340:12:35

It is true.

0:12:350:12:37

I think that is what you call having a frog in your throat.

0:12:370:12:40

-Hey, hey, hey!

-What?

0:12:400:12:42

No buttered frog-eating while you've got my body!

0:12:420:12:45

That's a point to every... I can do this, can't I? I keep forgetting.

0:12:450:12:49

Yes, point, point, point. Finished.

0:12:490:12:52

So, that's four points for Leon and Ellen, a tie-breaker situation.

0:12:520:12:56

Right, Katherine, you sit this one out for the moment.

0:12:580:13:00

Extend arms, pick up question, adopt position.

0:13:000:13:03

Beginning with the letter A,

0:13:050:13:06

what was the name of Henry VIII's second wife?

0:13:060:13:09

Anne.

0:13:110:13:12

Anne is correct. She got it right!

0:13:120:13:15

Excellent, so, Ellen, you've won. Go and choose your Year Sphere.

0:13:150:13:20

I can clap her!

0:13:210:13:23

OK, Ellen, you're through to play the Tudor game.

0:13:270:13:30

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

0:13:300:13:33

Let's find out.

0:13:330:13:35

Rattus, if you don't mind?

0:13:350:13:36

Here come the creepy long arms again. Whoa!

0:13:360:13:39

It's an All Play game.

0:13:420:13:44

-Down the Time Sewer with you.

-I'll get it!

0:13:440:13:47

My legs work as well!

0:13:490:13:51

Oh, it smells in here!

0:13:520:13:53

Shutting, shutting, weeing, weeing, walking, walking, weeing, shutting.

0:13:570:14:01

Want to work for Henry VIII?

0:14:010:14:03

Well, one way was to start at the bottom

0:14:030:14:05

and work your way up, literally.

0:14:050:14:08

It's time to play...

0:14:080:14:10

You are the groom of the stool.

0:14:120:14:15

-When Henry calls...

-I've finished!

0:14:150:14:18

..you must check His Majesty's poop.

0:14:180:14:19

In the meantime, you have to brick Henry into his bedroom at night,

0:14:190:14:23

to keep him safe from assassins.

0:14:230:14:25

First to brick up the door wins a Year Sphere.

0:14:250:14:27

HORN BLARES To the bricks they go.

0:14:300:14:33

Now, for those of you watching for the first time,

0:14:330:14:35

this innocent puzzle game will get really, really disgusting,

0:14:350:14:39

just like the filthy whiskers around my face.

0:14:390:14:41

-Don't you ever wash, Rattus?

-Yes! Every morning, in the sewer.

0:14:410:14:46

Not in my body, you don't!

0:14:460:14:48

I've finished!

0:14:480:14:50

-Right, here comes the horrible bit, then.

-You mean the good bit?

0:14:500:14:53

No, off they go to remove the King's horrible... Oh! Oh!

0:14:530:14:57

I think it's safe to say this is the only show on the planet

0:14:570:15:01

where you'll see children collecting a king's poo!

0:15:010:15:04

Right, back to the walls.

0:15:040:15:05

Everyone is making progress.

0:15:050:15:07

The patterns don't look quite right but that doesn't matter,

0:15:070:15:09

as long as all the pieces fit at the end, Rattus.

0:15:090:15:12

-That's right, Dave.

-Yes, it is right.

0:15:120:15:14

And talking of the end, we may be getting close,

0:15:140:15:16

because Leon is performing heroics.

0:15:160:15:19

What a brickie!

0:15:190:15:21

What an extraordinary brickie!

0:15:210:15:23

Henry VIII will be absolutely delighted with that.

0:15:230:15:27

He can sleep safe as houses.

0:15:270:15:28

A pair of lightning dabs from Leon.

0:15:280:15:31

Let's hear what he thought.

0:15:310:15:32

It feels really odd,

0:15:320:15:34

because I didn't expect myself to be cleaning up someone else's....waste.

0:15:340:15:39

Well, congratulations, Leon. Go and collect your Year Sphere.

0:15:410:15:44

Well done, Le... Ooh, I've had an idea. I'm off down the Time Sewer.

0:15:450:15:50

Run, run, run! Whee!

0:15:500:15:52

Will you stop hurling my body about?

0:15:520:15:55

-I'm back!

-Wow, that was quick.

0:15:550:15:57

Yeah, well, that's Time Sewers for you.

0:15:570:15:59

Whoa! Ooh!

0:15:590:16:00

What have I just said?

0:16:000:16:02

Oh, goodness' sake! Oh, I'll close that.

0:16:020:16:06

I've got hold of the Egyptian Book Of The Dead.

0:16:060:16:08

From the tomb of Tutankhamen?

0:16:080:16:10

No, from the studio of a Hollywood film producer.

0:16:100:16:13

Eugh! Silly, very silly.

0:16:130:16:15

Page 94, Tutankhamen's Curse Of The Underpants.

0:16:150:16:19

All you have to do is wish you were back in your own body.

0:16:190:16:23

Oh, this is like the worst movie plot ever.

0:16:230:16:25

One, two, three...

0:16:250:16:27

-BOTH:

-I wish I was back in my own body.

0:16:270:16:30

Oh, that is so much better!

0:16:340:16:36

Ah, yes, ha-ha!

0:16:360:16:38

Oh, I'm clean.

0:16:380:16:40

Right, Round Three

0:16:400:16:42

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

0:16:420:16:45

It's the Vile Victorians. Good day.

0:16:460:16:49

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

0:16:500:16:54

So, Katherine, it's finally your turn to pick first.

0:17:000:17:03

-Can I have Police, please?

-Yes, you can.

0:17:030:17:06

What did Victorian criminals call police officers?

0:17:060:17:09

Show me now, please.

0:17:150:17:16

Oh, complete disagreement! What's the answer?

0:17:160:17:19

The answer is C.

0:17:190:17:21

Victorian criminals called police officers bogies.

0:17:210:17:24

Hey, I'll tell you what I like to call a police officer.

0:17:240:17:27

-Cover your ears, viewers.

-Officer.

0:17:270:17:29

-Always treat them with respect, Dave.

-Hmm!

0:17:290:17:32

I think a little bit of human might have rubbed off on you, Rattus.

0:17:320:17:35

-Eugh!

-So, that's a point to you there, Ellen.

0:17:350:17:38

Leon, your turn to pick.

0:17:380:17:39

-Please can I have Fogs?

-Of course you can.

0:17:390:17:41

Victorian London was famous for its thick fogs

0:17:410:17:44

caused by fog from the Thames and smoke from coal fires.

0:17:440:17:48

But what were they called?

0:17:480:17:49

Show me now, please.

0:17:560:17:57

Everyone agrees on that one. Everybody thinks it's B.

0:17:580:18:02

What's the answer, please?

0:18:020:18:03

The answer is...A.

0:18:030:18:06

We called the folks pea soupers,

0:18:060:18:08

because they were as thick and greenish as a bowl of pea soup.

0:18:080:18:12

No points there, I'm afraid.

0:18:120:18:14

But Ellen, you get to choose the next topic.

0:18:140:18:16

-Could I have Cures, please?

-Yes, you can!

0:18:160:18:19

A Victorian cure for blisters was to put what in your boots?

0:18:190:18:22

Let's have a look at those answers.

0:18:280:18:30

Katherine and Leon agreeing this time with B.

0:18:310:18:33

Ellen thinks it's C. What's the answer, please?

0:18:330:18:35

The answer is C.

0:18:350:18:37

Raw eggs.

0:18:370:18:38

To cure blisters, you broke a raw egg into each boot.

0:18:380:18:42

Hmm! Cheesy eggs. What's not to like?

0:18:420:18:46

Yeah, it does sound quite nice, actually!

0:18:460:18:48

-Oh, Rattus, what have you done to me?

-Hey, once a rat, always a rat.

0:18:490:18:53

Let's just hope not.

0:18:530:18:55

So, that's another point to you, Ellen.

0:18:550:18:57

And that means that you have won the next Year Sphere. Congratulations.

0:18:570:19:00

-Help yourself.

-Fingers crossed it's not a BC baddie!

0:19:000:19:04

OK, Ellen, as the winner of the Victorian quiz,

0:19:060:19:08

you're through to play the Victorian game.

0:19:080:19:10

But will you be playing alone or will the others join in with you

0:19:100:19:13

and provide competition? There's only one way to find out.

0:19:130:19:16

Oh, it's a Single Player game!

0:19:210:19:23

-Ellen, do you think you can pull this off?

-Maybe!

0:19:230:19:26

Ellen, Time Sewer, Time Sewer, Ellen. Bye!

0:19:280:19:30

Good news - during the Industrial Revolution,

0:19:320:19:35

-some kids didn't have to go to school.

-Hey!

0:19:350:19:37

Bad news - it's because they were working in very dangerous factories

0:19:370:19:40

where there was always a high risk of injury.

0:19:400:19:42

-Oh!

-It's time to play...

0:19:420:19:44

Somewhere in the lethal machinery are four severed fingers.

0:19:470:19:50

All you have to do is reunite them with their long-lost hand.

0:19:500:19:54

If you manage it within the time limit,

0:19:540:19:56

there's a Year Sphere coming your way.

0:19:560:19:58

HORN BLARES

0:20:010:20:03

And through the roller goes Ellen, dodging into the loom now.

0:20:030:20:06

And she's going straight for the furthest finger, I think.

0:20:060:20:09

It's an interesting strategy, this. Let's hope it pays off.

0:20:090:20:12

I once snuck into a modern factory where there were fingers everywhere.

0:20:120:20:16

-No!

-It was a fish finger factory.

-Of course it was.

0:20:160:20:19

There's a lot of spinning going on here.

0:20:190:20:21

But the finger remains trapped.

0:20:210:20:23

Look at that!

0:20:240:20:25

-Turn it, girl! Turn it faster!

-Oh, gosh, here's the factory owner.

0:20:250:20:28

What a testable man he is!

0:20:280:20:30

But to be fair, she is going much faster.

0:20:300:20:32

Turn it! You've got to get all the fingers.

0:20:320:20:35

Oh, leave her alone, you bully! That's it, get lost.

0:20:350:20:38

Yeah, well done, you saw him off there, Rattus.

0:20:380:20:41

And she's got the finger! And it's free.

0:20:410:20:43

Chain next. She needs to make up for lost time here.

0:20:430:20:46

Victorian factories were dirty and grimy. Ooh, nice!

0:20:470:20:51

-What do I mean, nice!?

-Truly, Dave, you have found your inner rat.

0:20:510:20:55

Eugh! Only a few more pulls and she's got finger number two.

0:20:550:20:59

Hurry up, Ellen, you can do this.

0:20:590:21:01

And she has!

0:21:010:21:02

Back through the loom she goes.

0:21:020:21:04

Now, then, she's going to place these, is she? Yes!

0:21:050:21:08

Two fingers back on the hand, two to go.

0:21:080:21:11

Where's she going next, Rattus? We just don't know with Ellen.

0:21:110:21:14

She's a maverick.

0:21:140:21:16

Well, she's settled on the rods. she has to unscrew these

0:21:160:21:19

and then pull them out, like that.

0:21:190:21:21

Well, no, not like that!

0:21:210:21:22

That has got jammed.

0:21:220:21:24

Well, it's all very well taking the ones out below,

0:21:240:21:26

but she's got to unsnag that finger, Rattus.

0:21:260:21:29

Go on, give it a good jiggling, Ellen!

0:21:290:21:31

She's jiggling it like crazy!

0:21:310:21:33

And it starts to fall, piecemeal,

0:21:330:21:35

down to the bottom of the cabinet,

0:21:350:21:38

and she can grab it now.

0:21:380:21:39

One more to find.

0:21:390:21:41

She's got less than 10 seconds.

0:21:410:21:43

The final finger is in those bags somewhere.

0:21:430:21:46

Can she find it in time?

0:21:460:21:47

I don't think she can!

0:21:470:21:49

HORN BLARES No!

0:21:490:21:51

She has got it but after the time's ran out.

0:21:510:21:54

How do you feel, Ellen?

0:21:540:21:56

I spent a long time on the one

0:21:560:21:58

where you had to turn it around and around.

0:21:580:22:01

So, I think that slowed me down for the rest of it.

0:22:010:22:04

Oh, bad luck, Ellen. Bad luck!

0:22:050:22:08

No Year Sphere this time, but there is still one more to play for.

0:22:080:22:13

Hey, what... What's that weird smell?

0:22:130:22:15

-It's soap.

-You didn't...

0:22:150:22:18

-You didn't wash me?

-I sure did!

0:22:180:22:20

Argh!

0:22:200:22:22

-How could you?

-Oh, it's just a bit of fun, Rattus. Come on!

0:22:220:22:27

One more game, one more Year Sphere available,

0:22:270:22:30

so let's go over to the Gory Grid to find out what we're playing.

0:22:300:22:33

It's the Incredible Inca.

0:22:360:22:37

So, no quiz in our final round. We're ending on a massive Inca game.

0:22:390:22:43

-It's very exciting. How are you feeling about that?

-Cool.

-Good.

0:22:430:22:47

Well, what are you waiting for? Pop down that Time Sewer.

0:22:470:22:49

Well done, Katherine.

0:22:500:22:52

Whee!

0:22:540:22:55

If you were an Inca emperor and you wanted to spit,

0:22:570:23:00

then someone had to catch it.

0:23:000:23:01

So, let's play...

0:23:010:23:03

Your job is to catch the mucus in your hanky before it hits the ground

0:23:050:23:09

and then pop it in your basket at the end of your lane.

0:23:090:23:12

As if that wasn't enough phlegm, watch out for the spitting llamas.

0:23:120:23:15

The person with the greatest amount of gob is the winner

0:23:150:23:18

and gets themselves a Year Sphere.

0:23:180:23:20

HORN BLARES Hankies up and the phlegm is flying.

0:23:230:23:27

Oh, that was unlucky for Katherine there.

0:23:270:23:29

That was very lucky, though!

0:23:290:23:31

Now, hang on. Oh!

0:23:310:23:33

Ellen's picked one up off the floor, that's against the rules.

0:23:330:23:36

That is not going to count.

0:23:360:23:37

Katherine's on board with one. Now, Leon's broken the rules, Rattus!

0:23:370:23:41

-Aw!

-What is happening here?

-Yeah, what is happening?

0:23:410:23:45

The Incan emperor spit was not allowed to touch the ground.

0:23:450:23:47

That's sort of the point of the game.

0:23:470:23:50

I know, I know, Rattus.

0:23:500:23:51

Oh, what's going to happen now?

0:23:510:23:53

Ellen, off the floor again. That is not going to count.

0:23:530:23:57

Dear, oh, dear!

0:23:570:23:59

Katherine, on the other hand, is playing entirely by the rules. Look.

0:23:590:24:02

And that is reflected on the score board there, 2-0-0.

0:24:020:24:06

And as I say that, Leon notches a legitimate score

0:24:060:24:11

but Katherine counters immediately.

0:24:110:24:13

-Although Leon's on a charge here, Rattus.

-He certainly is!

0:24:130:24:16

But Katherine is keeping her nose in front.

0:24:160:24:19

-Oh, and here's the llamas.

-There they are!

0:24:190:24:21

And they are going to start spitting on our contestants,

0:24:210:24:24

which frankly is not something we want to see you doing at home.

0:24:240:24:27

Here she comes, Katherine, ready to score...

0:24:270:24:30

Whoa!

0:24:300:24:31

Whoa, that must have all been llama spit, that. Oh!

0:24:310:24:34

That was absolute carnage.

0:24:340:24:37

A complete wipe-out there.

0:24:370:24:39

This means that Katherine,

0:24:400:24:42

even though she's only one point up,

0:24:420:24:44

may have a commanding lead.

0:24:440:24:45

Now she's two points up!

0:24:450:24:47

And I don't think Leon's going to be

0:24:470:24:49

standing up again!

0:24:490:24:50

He might as well pick them off the floor now,

0:24:500:24:52

he's never getting up the other end, look.

0:24:520:24:54

No! Dear, oh, dear.

0:24:540:24:56

It's just become a slip fest.

0:24:560:24:58

I mean, look at that.

0:24:580:25:00

He's not going anywhere fast there, Leon.

0:25:000:25:02

And down he goes! HE LAUGHS

0:25:020:25:05

Down he goes again.

0:25:050:25:06

-And oh, dear me!

-You shouldn't laugh.

0:25:060:25:09

Oh, they're all over the place here.

0:25:090:25:11

There's Katherine, she's won it.

0:25:110:25:13

Leon hasn't.

0:25:130:25:14

It got really tiring, and it was even more difficult

0:25:140:25:17

when the slime came down and there was llamas spitting in your face.

0:25:170:25:22

But apart from that, I really, really enjoyed the game.

0:25:220:25:25

Welcome back, welcome back. Well played, Katherine, well played.

0:25:260:25:30

Collect that Year Sphere.

0:25:300:25:32

That could be absolutely crucial in the final reckoning.

0:25:320:25:35

Now then, it's time to count up those Year Spheres.

0:25:360:25:39

And remember, AD dates are added to your total

0:25:390:25:42

and BC dates are, of course, subtracted from it.

0:25:420:25:45

OK, Leon, let's open up that first one, please.

0:25:460:25:49

Charles Darwin published On the Origin of Species

0:25:520:25:55

about the theory of evolution that year.

0:25:550:25:58

Let's have a look at the second one.

0:25:580:25:59

It's another good one, 1348 AD.

0:26:010:26:04

The Black Death hit England that very year.

0:26:040:26:06

Let's have a look at the final one.

0:26:060:26:08

Oh, it's AD, it's small but it is AD.

0:26:110:26:13

476 AD, the fall of the Western Roman Empire that year.

0:26:130:26:19

Now, I reckon that if you got brilliant ones, Ellen,

0:26:190:26:21

you might be able to catch that.

0:26:210:26:23

Let's have a look at that first sphere.

0:26:230:26:25

That's junked that theory.

0:26:280:26:31

-9500 BC.

-Yes!

-What?

0:26:310:26:34

I'm afraid that was the end of the last Ice Age.

0:26:340:26:37

And there's another one. Let's have a second look.

0:26:370:26:40

2400 BC. You've lost in enormously brilliant style!

0:26:400:26:44

That is tremendous losing.

0:26:440:26:46

The abacus was invented in Babylonia around about then.

Remarkable set of figures there. Katherine, let's have a look.

0:26:500:26:53

1547 AD!

0:26:560:26:58

Henry VIII died that year.

0:26:580:27:00

You've finished firmly in second place.

0:27:000:27:02

But today's winner is Leon, with a total of 3,683 points.

0:27:020:27:10

-What?

-That means that you are, of course, the winner.

0:27:100:27:13

But as Rattus found your prize in the Time Sewer,

0:27:130:27:16

you are also, in many ways, the loser.

0:27:160:27:18

Oh, I beg to differ, Dave!

0:27:180:27:21

-This prize is red hot.

-I'll be the judge of that.

0:27:210:27:24

Oh, wow, it is red hot.

0:27:260:27:28

Yeah, it's from Stuart witchfinder general Matthew Hopkins,

0:27:280:27:32

who said to stop a witch's power,

0:27:320:27:34

you had to take a red-hot poker and prod it in a poo.

0:27:340:27:37

There you go, Leon.

0:27:370:27:38

-Thanks.

-Two reasons never ever to touch it.

0:27:390:27:42

And our runners-up don't escape poop-free, of course.

0:27:420:27:45

They're off home via the Time Sewer.

0:27:450:27:47

And they're both absolutely cock-a-hoop about it,

0:27:480:27:51

for some reason.

0:27:510:27:52

Oh, yes!

0:27:570:27:59

Ah! That is good!

0:27:590:28:02

Well, I've been Dave Lamb.

0:28:020:28:03

And unfortunately, I've been Rattus Rattus,

0:28:030:28:05

and it's something I may never recover from.

0:28:050:28:08

-You've been watching Gory Games.

-Goodbye!

0:28:080:28:10

# Games! #

0:28:120:28:13

Dave and Rattus are victims of a (highly factually inaccurate) ancient Egyptian curse, and Leon, Ellen and Katherine battle it out to win Year Spheres in games including Lootin-Khamun and Phlegm Fling.
