Hello, I'm Rick Edwards, and this is !mpossible, day 14.

0:00:020:00:05

Welcome to !mpossible,

0:00:160:00:17

the quiz where the questions aren't impossible,

0:00:170:00:19

but some of the answers always are.

0:00:190:00:22

They are not just wrong - they couldn't possibly be right.

0:00:220:00:25

For example, if I were to ask...

0:00:250:00:34

..the right answer is Zayn Malik, the wrong answer is Liam Payne,

0:00:340:00:39

but Ed Sheeran was never in One Direction,

0:00:390:00:41

so that is the impossible answer.

0:00:410:00:43

Hoping to get lots of right answers whilst dodging

0:00:430:00:46

those pesky impossible answers are 30 players.

0:00:460:00:49

-Hello, players!

-Hello, Rick.

0:00:490:00:51

Hello. They are with us throughout the series,

0:00:510:00:54

competing not only for a daily prize pot of up to £1,500...

0:00:540:00:58

Whoo!

0:00:580:01:00

..but also for a shot at the £10,000 question!

0:01:000:01:03

-Whoo!

-This exclamation mark is filled

0:01:030:01:07

with 10,000 shimmering pound coins.

0:01:070:01:10

At the end of every show, our winner faces one final question.

0:01:100:01:16

And here it is - today's £10,000 question.

0:01:160:01:20

Get this right, and all of that cash will come flooding out.

0:01:200:01:26

Alan, yesterday, you came close...

0:01:260:01:29

-It was close.

-..to that £10,000.

0:01:290:01:31

Wasn't my subject, let's be honest.

0:01:310:01:33

So I made sure I had enough money to take me all the way to Butlins

0:01:330:01:38

in November for the darts championships.

0:01:380:01:39

Oh, I love some darts, Alan.

0:01:390:01:42

Anne, what kind of subject areas would you pick if you could?

0:01:420:01:47

-Classical music.

-Classical music.

0:01:470:01:49

I've played in an amateur symphony orchestra for over 60 years.

0:01:490:01:53

Really? What do you play, Anne?

0:01:530:01:54

-Viola.

-And the same orchestra?

0:01:540:01:57

-The same orchestra.

-I assume you're the longest-standing member.

0:01:570:02:00

-I am.

-And I assume you're also the best musician.

0:02:000:02:04

No, no, not that.

0:02:040:02:05

-Oh, OK.

-I avoid making a loud noise in the wrong place.

0:02:050:02:09

Yes, that's the thing in an orchestra, you can sort of hide,

0:02:090:02:11

-can't you?

-Indeed.

0:02:110:02:13

OK. Let's crack on.

0:02:130:02:16

You'll face five multiple choice questions, each with three answers.

0:02:160:02:20

The right answer scores you a point.

0:02:200:02:22

The wrong answer scores you nothing.

0:02:220:02:25

But if you choose the impossible answer,

0:02:250:02:28

it's a bit of a disaster.

0:02:280:02:30

That immediately knocks you out of today's show,

0:02:300:02:32

and you'll have to try again tomorrow, which is the last day.

0:02:320:02:36

After five questions, the highest scorer

0:02:360:02:38

gets the first chance to bag a place in today's final.

0:02:380:02:41

Do answer as quickly as you can, because if there's a tie,

0:02:410:02:44

whoever locked in their answers the fastest will qualify.

0:02:440:02:48

Good luck, everyone.

0:02:490:02:51

-Are you ready?

-Yes.

0:02:510:02:53

Here's your first question.

0:02:530:02:55

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:03:110:03:14

It's C, Juventus. A point to everyone who went for Juventus.

0:03:150:03:19

-Jane.

-I don't know why, I thought there was an Ajax Milan,

0:03:190:03:24

but I'm probably wrong.

0:03:240:03:26

Let's hope Lazio was a drink or something.

0:03:260:03:28

-OK.

-Not a football club.

0:03:280:03:30

Let's hope that Lazio is a drink.

0:03:300:03:31

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:03:330:03:35

I'm afraid it's A, Ajax.

0:03:380:03:40

That's a Dutch team.

0:03:400:03:42

Lazio, not a drink yet, but maybe we can mix one up later, Jane.

0:03:420:03:45

-Thank you!

-We'll see you tomorrow.

0:03:450:03:47

Let's move on to question two.

0:03:480:03:50

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:04:030:04:05

It's A, Emma.

0:04:070:04:09

So, the majority of you get a point.

0:04:090:04:12

However... Bim.

0:04:120:04:14

Still smiling.

0:04:140:04:15

If I don't smile, I'll cry!

0:04:160:04:18

Heard of any of those books?

0:04:210:04:23

Yes. I have actually heard of Emma and Northanger Abbey.

0:04:230:04:27

OK. So you went with one that you'd heard of in the hope that it isn't

0:04:270:04:32

-an impossible answer.

-Yes.

0:04:320:04:34

-Elliott.

-To be honest, it was a bit of a guess.

0:04:350:04:38

OK.

0:04:390:04:41

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:04:410:04:43

It's B, Far From The Madding Crowd, which was written by Thomas Hardy,

0:04:460:04:51

I'm afraid, Elliott.

0:04:510:04:52

Dan, Kerry, Elliott, we say goodbye to you.

0:04:520:04:55

We'll see you tomorrow.

0:04:550:04:56

Question number three.

0:04:580:04:59

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:05:140:05:16

It's 5ive.

0:05:180:05:20

A point to all of you.

0:05:200:05:21

-Ash.

-I did have a millisecond of thinking, unusually for me,

0:05:220:05:28

and realised that Steps maybe had girls in it, so...

0:05:280:05:31

You think you've played it well and you're safe.

0:05:310:05:34

I'm hoping that Steps had some female singers.

0:05:340:05:38

Penny, directly behind you,

0:05:390:05:41

is hoping that Steps did not have any female singers.

0:05:410:05:45

No, I've never heard of B, 5ive, and

0:05:450:05:49

I knew Boyzone, obviously, were boys, and, thinking about it,

0:05:490:05:54

Ash is absolutely right.

0:05:540:05:56

There are females in Steps, so,

0:05:560:05:58

bye!

0:05:580:06:00

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:06:000:06:02

I'm afraid Steps was the impossible answer, which means,

0:06:060:06:11

Penny and Anne, we're going to have to lose you.

0:06:110:06:15

We will see you tomorrow.

0:06:150:06:17

Question number four.

0:06:180:06:20

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:06:330:06:35

It's Aer Lingus, and the majority of you get a point.

0:06:380:06:40

Craig. Are we about to lose you?

0:06:420:06:46

I'm pretty sure that Ryanair is an Irish airline.

0:06:460:06:50

-Pretty sure.

-Bim.

0:06:520:06:54

Well, I've only taken Ryanair, I've never been on Aer Lingus, so...

0:06:540:06:59

Let's hope you haven't given the impossible answer, which was...

0:06:590:07:02

..Loganair, which is a Scottish airline, meaning Craig and Bim,

0:07:040:07:10

you avoided it successfully. Well done.

0:07:100:07:13

Question number five.

0:07:130:07:15

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:07:330:07:35

It's Caroline of Brunswick.

0:07:380:07:40

A point to all of you.

0:07:400:07:42

-Guy.

-I was just trying to think of a queen with a bent nose, and I just

0:07:440:07:47

couldn't think of anyone, so I went for the middle one.

0:07:470:07:51

LAUGHTER

0:07:510:07:55

I like the way your mind works, Guy.

0:07:550:07:58

Doesn't necessarily give the right answer.

0:07:580:08:00

-No.

-But it makes me smile.

-Thank you.

0:08:000:08:03

-Vinessa. You went for Sophie of Wurttemberg.

-Mm.

0:08:030:08:07

Sophie's a nice name, so...

0:08:070:08:09

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:08:120:08:14

I'm afraid it's C, Sophie of Wurttemberg.

0:08:170:08:20

She was not a British queen, she was a queen of the Netherlands, meaning,

0:08:200:08:25

Vinessa, Simon and Elaine...

0:08:250:08:28

..we'll have to say goodbye to you.

0:08:290:08:31

We'll see you tomorrow.

0:08:310:08:32

So, at the end of that round, four of you got a maximum five points.

0:08:340:08:41

Linda, Megan, Alan and Kurtis,

0:08:410:08:46

all on five points,

0:08:460:08:49

but the quickest to lock in their answers across the round...

0:08:490:08:53

..was Alan. APPLAUSE

0:08:550:08:57

Congratulations, Alan.

0:08:590:09:01

You're on a bit of a streak.

0:09:010:09:03

You have the first chance to grab a place in today's final.

0:09:030:09:06

-Alan.

-Hey, Rick.

0:09:110:09:13

You're on a bit of a roll, here.

0:09:130:09:14

Yes, I liked it so much down here yesterday...

0:09:140:09:17

Thought, "Why not come down again?"

0:09:170:09:18

Why not horrendously guess lots of questions and get it right?

0:09:180:09:21

So, this, as you know, is your chance to put up to £500

0:09:210:09:25

into today's prize pot, and crucially,

0:09:250:09:28

take a massive step towards playing the £10,000 question.

0:09:280:09:31

I'm going to give you a choice of four topics.

0:09:320:09:34

They are Books, Famous People, Art, and Film.

0:09:360:09:40

-It's nice to be up here and have the first choice.

-Mm-hm.

0:09:400:09:43

I mean, I'd do sell books and I read a lot of books,

0:09:440:09:46

but the classics usually escape me.

0:09:460:09:48

-OK.

-Art, to me, is comics,

0:09:480:09:50

and it's probably not going to be Marvel characters.

0:09:500:09:52

-Don't think so.

-Erm, I think...

0:09:520:09:55

I've really always been a big film fan, so I'll go for Film.

0:09:550:09:58

OK. I'm going to reveal nine answers.

0:09:580:10:01

And the first half of the question...

0:10:160:10:18

Which actor in the 2016 film Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice...?

0:10:180:10:25

You do know I run a comic shop, right?

0:10:250:10:27

I do. It feels like...

0:10:270:10:30

-..that's worked for you, pretty nicely.

-It's fate, finally.

0:10:310:10:33

Five of those answers are impossible

0:10:330:10:36

because they are not in Batman v Superman.

0:10:360:10:39

Each impossible answer you manage to eliminate will add £100

0:10:390:10:43

to today's prize pot. Where would you like to start?

0:10:430:10:46

I think we can probably rattle through these.

0:10:460:10:48

We'll probably rattle through it quite well.

0:10:480:10:49

Let's start with...

0:10:490:10:51

-Matt Damon.

-Let's lock Matt Damon in.

0:10:510:10:54

Is Matt Damon an impossible answer?

0:10:540:10:57

Yes, it is. £100 to the prize pot. APPLAUSE

0:10:590:11:02

-Who shall we knock out next?

-So we'll have Silver Linings Playbook,

0:11:020:11:05

and The A Team, Bradley Cooper.

0:11:050:11:07

Let's lock in Bradley Cooper.

0:11:070:11:10

Is Bradley Cooper an impossible answer?

0:11:100:11:12

Yes, he is. APPLAUSE

0:11:150:11:17

£200 into the prize pot.

0:11:170:11:19

-Who next?

-We'll have the voice of Groot in Guardians Of The Galaxy

0:11:190:11:22

and Triple X, Vin Diesel.

0:11:220:11:24

Vin Diesel. I like the fact you're showing off, Alan.

0:11:260:11:28

-I am Groot.

-It's good.

0:11:280:11:29

Is Vin Diesel an impossible answer?

0:11:310:11:33

Yes, it is. APPLAUSE

0:11:370:11:40

£300 in the prize pot.

0:11:400:11:42

Another Marvel boy, the Incredible Hulk himself and Fight Club,

0:11:420:11:46

-Edward Norton.

-Is Edward Norton an impossible answer?

0:11:460:11:50

He is. APPLAUSE

0:11:530:11:56

Not the current Incredible Hulk, that is...

0:11:560:11:58

Eric Bana. Gagging for this.

0:11:580:12:00

Get rid of the last one, will you?

0:12:000:12:02

Finally, we'll just go for the one film, Alfie, the remake, Jude Law.

0:12:020:12:05

Is Jude Law an impossible answer?

0:12:050:12:07

He is. APPLAUSE

0:12:120:12:15

With some ease, put £500 into today's prize pot.

0:12:150:12:18

-Crossed finger.

-Are you going to be playing for that money and a shot at

0:12:180:12:21

the £10,000 question in today's final?

0:12:210:12:24

I'm about to reveal the second half of the question.

0:12:240:12:27

I'm now looking for the right answer.

0:12:270:12:29

Give that to me, and a place in the final is yours.

0:12:290:12:31

Give a wrong answer...

0:12:310:12:33

First of all, I'll pick myself up off the floor,

0:12:340:12:36

and then I will pass over the chance to the next best player

0:12:360:12:41

in that round. And I can reveal that was Kurtis.

0:12:410:12:46

-Won't hold my breath.

-So, Kurtis is waiting to steal,

0:12:460:12:51

but not that eagerly.

0:12:510:12:52

Let's reveal the full question.

0:12:530:12:55

Which actor in the 2016 film Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice...

0:12:560:13:00

..plays the role of Lex Luthor?

0:13:010:13:04

From lots of things, Jesse Eisenberg.

0:13:040:13:09

Is Jesse Eisenberg the right answer?

0:13:090:13:11

Of course it is. APPLAUSE

0:13:140:13:15

Of course it is. Not getting that wrong.

0:13:150:13:17

Just...just for fun, Alan, go on, do the others.

0:13:180:13:21

Henry Cavill was Superman, Ben Affleck, Batman,

0:13:210:13:23

Jeremy Irons was Alfred Pennyworth, the butler.

0:13:230:13:26

Absolutely right. Take your place in the final.

0:13:260:13:28

Thank you. APPLAUSE

0:13:280:13:31

Still two places left in today's final alongside Alan.

0:13:360:13:40

Let's find out who's going to be taking the next one.

0:13:400:13:43

Here's your first question.

0:13:430:13:45

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:14:000:14:01

It's C, Porridge. A point to all of you.

0:14:030:14:06

-Chris.

-In my mind, any of them could have been impossible, so...

0:14:070:14:12

I just hit any button.

0:14:120:14:13

-Bim?

-Well, I've heard of The Good Life.

0:14:130:14:16

I wasn't around here in the 1970s.

0:14:190:14:22

Let's hope you've avoided the impossible answer.

0:14:220:14:24

You have. The impossible answer was On The Buses.

0:14:260:14:29

That was an ITV sitcom.

0:14:290:14:31

So you escape, Bim and Chris.

0:14:310:14:34

Moving on to question number two.

0:14:340:14:37

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:14:530:14:55

It's A, ugli fruit.

0:14:580:15:01

Everyone who went for ugli fruit gets a point.

0:15:010:15:04

-Ash.

-I thought, well, I've eaten a papaya and it's not a citrus fruit.

0:15:040:15:08

So you are saying that you think ten people might have given

0:15:080:15:12

the impossible answer?

0:15:120:15:13

Yeah, sounds very unlikely now that you come to say it like that.

0:15:130:15:17

Maybe I'm the one that's wrong.

0:15:170:15:20

Well, let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:15:200:15:23

It's C, papaya.

0:15:260:15:29

Papaya is not a citrus fruit.

0:15:290:15:32

You remembered that correctly, Ash.

0:15:320:15:34

We lose ten of you in one go.

0:15:340:15:37

See you all tomorrow.

0:15:370:15:38

Not even halfway through Round Two,

0:15:420:15:45

and we're down to eight players.

0:15:450:15:47

Question number three.

0:15:470:15:49

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:16:020:16:04

C, Katy Perry.

0:16:060:16:09

Points to Ash, Craig and Helen.

0:16:090:16:12

-Sarah.

-I'm fairly sure Nelly Furtado's Canadian,

0:16:120:16:16

so fingers crossed.

0:16:160:16:18

OK. Let's find out. Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:16:180:16:21

Nelly Furtado is Canadian. You're right, Sarah.

0:16:240:16:26

You survive and move on to question four.

0:16:260:16:29

Well, let's reveal the right answer.

0:16:470:16:50

It's C, Agamemnon.

0:16:520:16:55

You were the only person to get that right, Ash.

0:16:550:16:57

-You get a point.

-Wow.

0:16:570:17:01

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:17:010:17:03

It's B, Aeneas, who was a Trojan warrior, not a Greek warrior.

0:17:070:17:13

That means five of you, Kurtis, Chris, Sarah, Parin, and Annie,

0:17:130:17:20

we have to say goodbye to you, and we'll see you tomorrow.

0:17:200:17:23

So the three surviving players - Ash, Craig and Helen -

0:17:250:17:29

are all tied on three points.

0:17:290:17:32

How on earth has this happened?!

0:17:320:17:34

Your...

0:17:340:17:35

I don't think your odds are

0:17:350:17:37

ever going to get better than this, Craig.

0:17:370:17:39

Question number five.

0:17:410:17:43

All gone for a different answer.

0:18:020:18:04

-Ash?

-Yes, I just thought the question was the other way round.

0:18:050:18:08

Craig. Anything you'd like to add?

0:18:080:18:11

No.

0:18:120:18:13

-Helen?

-I did a bit of thinking on this because I watched the trailer

0:18:150:18:19

for the new film and I feel like I remember one of the girls had

0:18:190:18:23

a really stupid name, and I thought it might be Tatty.

0:18:230:18:26

So... they might change that, cos it's weird.

0:18:260:18:29

It's more than the others have offered.

0:18:290:18:32

Let's first reveal the impossible answer, and lose one of you.

0:18:330:18:38

Oh!

0:18:410:18:42

It's C, Nancy.

0:18:420:18:45

Nancy was an Amazon, not a Swallow.

0:18:450:18:48

-Oh, well.

-I'm sorry, Craig.

0:18:480:18:50

-Always tomorrow, eh?

-We'll see you then.

0:18:500:18:52

Whoever has given the right answer will come down and play the grid.

0:18:540:19:00

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:19:000:19:02

It's A, Tatty.

0:19:050:19:08

Well done, Helen. Tatty, in the original film and books,

0:19:080:19:12

was called Titty, so congratulations,

0:19:120:19:14

you have the chance to grab a place in today's final alongside Alan.

0:19:140:19:18

APPLAUSE

0:19:180:19:20

Helen, you must be feeling pretty good to have just survived a round

0:19:240:19:29

that only one other person survived.

0:19:290:19:32

That was tough.

0:19:320:19:33

But you've emerged unscathed, and ready to play another grid.

0:19:330:19:37

Yeah, love the grids.

0:19:370:19:38

You do love the grids, Helen.

0:19:380:19:41

You have the chance to add another £500 to today's prize pot,

0:19:410:19:46

which already stands at £500, thanks to Alan.

0:19:460:19:49

You can also take a huge step towards playing

0:19:490:19:52

the £10,000 question.

0:19:520:19:54

Of the three remaining topics, which do you fancy?

0:19:540:19:58

I'm going to go for Books.

0:19:580:20:00

OK, Books. Going to reveal nine answers.

0:20:000:20:04

And the first half of the question...

0:20:190:20:21

Which detective, created by Agatha Christie...?

0:20:210:20:25

I was hoping for some Harry Potter.

0:20:270:20:30

You know? But I can work with it, I think.

0:20:300:20:34

OK, I'm glad you can work with it.

0:20:340:20:36

We know that five answers are impossible because they aren't

0:20:360:20:38

characters created by Agatha Christie.

0:20:380:20:42

For each one you get rid of, you add £100 to the prize pot.

0:20:420:20:46

Where would you like to start?

0:20:470:20:48

Let's take out Sherlock Holmes.

0:20:480:20:50

Is Sherlock Holmes an impossible answer?

0:20:510:20:53

It is. APPLAUSE

0:20:560:20:58

Of course, created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

0:20:580:21:01

-Who next?

-This is where it gets a bit tricky.

0:21:010:21:04

I definitely know a few that are Agatha Christie,

0:21:040:21:07

but I don't recognise the other names, so...

0:21:070:21:11

I'll go Father Brown.

0:21:150:21:16

And why are you going for Father Brown?

0:21:180:21:20

Would a Father be a detective on the side?

0:21:200:21:23

Maybe too busy with the spiritual work.

0:21:240:21:28

-Yeah. I mean, he should be.

-Yeah.

0:21:280:21:30

But let's see. Is Father Brown an impossible answer?

0:21:300:21:34

It is. APPLAUSE

0:21:370:21:40

Father Brown does do a bit of detective work on the side,

0:21:400:21:42

but he was created by G K Chesterton.

0:21:420:21:45

Oh. OK.

0:21:450:21:47

Hmm.

0:21:480:21:49

I'll go Jane Tennison.

0:21:500:21:53

So, Jane Tennison.

0:21:530:21:55

Much more of a guess, really.

0:21:550:21:57

Is Jane Tennison an impossible answer?

0:21:570:22:00

It is. APPLAUSE

0:22:050:22:06

Jane Tennison was created by Lynda La Plante.

0:22:060:22:10

She's in Prime Suspect.

0:22:100:22:11

Let's go Tuppence Besford.

0:22:140:22:17

Can't say it.

0:22:170:22:18

Any thoughts on Tuppence Beresford?

0:22:180:22:21

It's an odd name, but just stood out to me.

0:22:210:22:24

Might as well choose it.

0:22:240:22:26

It is an odd name, but is it an impossible answer?

0:22:260:22:30

Tuppence Beresford WAS created by Agatha Christie.

0:22:340:22:38

One more answer, please, Helen.

0:22:380:22:40

OK. Philip Marlowe.

0:22:400:22:42

-Thinking?

-Yeah.

0:22:430:22:45

This name actually seemed familiar to me, and I didn't know if that was

0:22:450:22:48

because it is a famous Agatha Christie character or because it's

0:22:480:22:52

a character in something else,

0:22:520:22:53

so I kind of just wants to rule it out one way or another,

0:22:530:22:56

because that will hopefully help me.

0:22:560:22:57

OK.

0:22:570:22:59

Is Philip Marlowe an impossible answer?

0:22:590:23:02

It is. APPLAUSE

0:23:060:23:08

Philip Marlowe was created by Raymond Chandler.

0:23:080:23:11

Let's see if you're going to be playing for that money and a shot at

0:23:120:23:16

the £10,000 question in today's final.

0:23:160:23:20

When I reveal the second half of the question, I want you to tell me

0:23:200:23:23

the right answer. Find it, you're in the final with Alan.

0:23:230:23:27

Give me a wrong answer, and the next best player, who was Ash,

0:23:270:23:31

gets the chance to steal your place in the final.

0:23:310:23:34

There is still one impossible left up there on the grid.

0:23:350:23:41

If you give me that, you will be eliminated.

0:23:410:23:44

The full question is...

0:23:460:23:48

Which detective created by Agatha Christie has a crime-solving partner

0:23:490:23:55

called Tommy?

0:23:550:23:56

I didn't really know a lot of them had, like, sidekicks.

0:23:580:24:02

I mean, there is... There's three, now, that I know are correct.

0:24:040:24:08

I'm going to guess Poirot.

0:24:140:24:16

As far as I know, he worked alone, but I have no real idea.

0:24:160:24:20

Is Hercule Poirot the right answer?

0:24:220:24:25

It's not, Helen, I'm sorry. That is a wrong answer.

0:24:300:24:34

Meaning that Ash, we throw to you.

0:24:340:24:37

So...

0:24:390:24:40

I'm going to guess Tuppence Beresford.

0:24:430:24:45

Is Tuppence Beresford the right answer?

0:24:470:24:50

It is! APPLAUSE

0:24:550:24:57

Sorry, Helen.

0:25:000:25:01

Your place in the final has been nabbed by Ash.

0:25:010:25:05

-Sorry!

-The impossible that you missed was Lord Peter Wimsey,

0:25:050:25:10

who was a Dorothy L Sayers creation.

0:25:100:25:13

APPLAUSE Congratulations, Ash.

0:25:130:25:16

Please take your place in the final alongside Alan.

0:25:160:25:18

So, just one place left in today's final alongside Alan and Ash,

0:25:250:25:31

and Helen, as the last player standing who hasn't given an

0:25:310:25:34

impossible answer, you start this round on your own.

0:25:340:25:38

All you have to do to play another grid

0:25:380:25:41

is to get a single question right.

0:25:410:25:44

However, if you give an impossible answer, everyone is back in.

0:25:440:25:50

-Are you ready?

-Sure!

0:25:520:25:55

Here's your first question.

0:25:560:25:57

How do you feel?

0:26:130:26:14

I've heard of Cannon and Ball, so that's what I pressed.

0:26:140:26:18

OK. Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:26:180:26:22

It's Peters and Lee, so you avoided that.

0:26:250:26:28

Peters and Lee were a singing duo.

0:26:280:26:31

Yeah.

0:26:310:26:32

If Cannon and Ball is the right answer,

0:26:330:26:36

you'll be going straight through to play another grid.

0:26:360:26:39

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:26:410:26:44

It's Cannon and Ball! APPLAUSE

0:26:470:26:50

Yeah!

0:26:500:26:51

Congratulations, Helen.

0:26:510:26:53

You have another chance to grab a place in the final

0:26:540:26:58

-alongside Alan and Ash.

-So many grids!

0:26:580:27:00

So, Helen, after a gripping Round Three,

0:27:070:27:11

here we are. Exactly the same as before -

0:27:110:27:14

you can add another £500 to today's prize pot which already stands at

0:27:140:27:19

£900, and also be a step closer towards playing

0:27:190:27:23

the £10,000 question.

0:27:230:27:25

Of the remaining topics, Art and Famous People,

0:27:260:27:34

which would you like to go for?

0:27:340:27:36

-Let's go Art.

-You did do two years of art history.

0:27:360:27:39

Yeah. I was listening for some of it, so maybe.

0:27:390:27:43

OK. Your nine answers are...

0:27:430:27:47

Cool. Yeah.

0:28:030:28:06

The first half of the question is...

0:28:060:28:10

Which painting by Rembrandt...?

0:28:100:28:13

-OK.

-Five of them are impossible

0:28:150:28:18

because they aren't paintings by Rembrandt.

0:28:180:28:21

Where would you like to start?

0:28:210:28:22

Let's say Girl With A Pearl Earring.

0:28:220:28:24

Any idea who that's by?

0:28:260:28:27

-That's a Vermeer.

-OK.

0:28:270:28:30

Is Girl With A Pearl Earring an impossible answer?

0:28:300:28:32

It is. £100 added to the prize pot. APPLAUSE

0:28:360:28:39

As you say, it's a painting by Vermeer.

0:28:390:28:41

OK. The Potato Eaters.

0:28:430:28:45

-Who's that by?

-I think it might be a van Gogh.

0:28:460:28:49

Yeah, I think it is.

0:28:490:28:51

Or something around that time.

0:28:510:28:53

Or possibly not, but I'm pretty sure it's not a Rembrandt, so...

0:28:530:28:56

-Hey-ho.

-Hey-ho.

0:28:560:28:57

Is The Potato Eaters an impossible answer?

0:28:570:29:00

APPLAUSE It is van Gogh.

0:29:030:29:05

Nice.

0:29:050:29:07

Three more impossible answers remain on the grid.

0:29:070:29:10

Let's do The Return Of The Prodigal Son.

0:29:100:29:13

Does it sound like a Rembrandt?

0:29:130:29:14

I'm not sure. I mean...

0:29:140:29:16

Prodigal son story - don't remember many religious works by him.

0:29:160:29:22

Let's see if you've picked an impossible answer.

0:29:220:29:27

Unfortunately not. That is a painting by Rembrandt.

0:29:270:29:30

The Laughing Cavalier.

0:29:310:29:33

-Who do you think that's by?

-I've done all the ones I'm sure of, so...

0:29:350:29:38

OK.

0:29:390:29:40

Is The Laughing Cavalier an impossible answer?

0:29:410:29:44

-It is!

-Yay!

-APPLAUSE

0:29:480:29:50

That is by Frans Hals.

0:29:500:29:52

One more answer from you, please, Helen.

0:29:520:29:55

I'll go Olympia.

0:29:570:29:58

Is Olympia an impossible answer?

0:29:590:30:02

It is! APPLAUSE

0:30:060:30:07

Olympia is by Manet.

0:30:070:30:09

£400 added to the prize pot which now stands at £1,300.

0:30:100:30:18

But will you be playing for that money and a shot at

0:30:180:30:22

the £10,000 question in today's final?

0:30:220:30:25

The last player to be eliminated was Craig...

0:30:250:30:32

-(You'll be fine.)

-..who is waiting to steal your place in the final.

0:30:320:30:36

-Craig.

-Mm-hm.

-This is your big chance.

0:30:360:30:39

My only chance, I fear.

0:30:400:30:42

It might be your only chance, Craig.

0:30:420:30:44

So, Helen, there is one impossible answer left on the grid.

0:30:450:30:51

If you give that, you will be eliminated from today's show.

0:30:510:30:55

The full question is...

0:30:560:30:58

Which painting by Rembrandt

0:31:000:31:03

can be seen at the National Gallery in London?

0:31:030:31:07

Oh.

0:31:100:31:12

I was actually there recently.

0:31:120:31:13

There's one that really...

0:31:150:31:17

Like, I really recognise the name,

0:31:170:31:18

I think it's a really famous painting that could definitely

0:31:180:31:21

be there, but maybe it's someone else's really famous painting.

0:31:210:31:24

I'm going to go for The Blue Boy.

0:31:260:31:28

Is The Blue Boy the right answer?

0:31:300:31:34

Oh!

0:31:420:31:43

-Oh!

-It isn't the right answer.

0:31:450:31:48

You've just knocked yourself out of today's show.

0:31:480:31:51

Somebody has got to take your place in the final,

0:31:520:31:56

and we're going to start by throwing the question to Craig.

0:31:560:32:01

I know nothing about art.

0:32:020:32:04

You do surprise me, Craig(!)

0:32:040:32:07

However,

0:32:070:32:09

there was one other answer that just kind of was jumping at me,

0:32:090:32:15

and that's The Night Watch.

0:32:150:32:17

OK. Is The Night Watch the right answer?

0:32:170:32:22

-Oh.

-No.

0:32:250:32:27

But it is by Rembrandt.

0:32:270:32:30

I knew that.

0:32:300:32:31

I imagine you know that it's currently hanging at the Rijksmuseum

0:32:320:32:36

-in Amsterdam.

-Yeah.

0:32:360:32:37

The next best player, way back in Round Two,

0:32:400:32:44

-was Sarah.

-No!

0:32:440:32:46

Yes.

0:32:470:32:48

I'm going to go Belsh... I can't say it.

0:32:530:32:55

Belshazzar's Feast.

0:32:550:32:57

Would you like to lock in Belshazzar's Feast?

0:32:580:33:01

No, actually, I'm going to go for Bathsheba At Her Bath.

0:33:020:33:05

I'm going to... I'm going to kick myself when it's the wrong answer.

0:33:050:33:08

No, I'm going to go for Bathsheba At Her Bath.

0:33:080:33:11

OK.

0:33:110:33:13

Is Bathsheba At Her Bath the right answer?

0:33:130:33:17

No. It's in the Louvre in Paris, Sarah.

0:33:240:33:28

The next best player...

0:33:290:33:31

..was Parin.

0:33:340:33:35

So I've been to the National Gallery,

0:33:400:33:43

and I've seen the Rembrandt portraits there.

0:33:430:33:46

I've taken a picture of one and I've taken a picture of the detail,

0:33:460:33:49

as well, but I haven't got the foggiest what it was.

0:33:490:33:52

But if...if this answer is what I'm thinking, it's Belshazzar's Feast.

0:33:540:34:00

Is Belshazzar's Feast the right answer?

0:34:020:34:05

It is! APPLAUSE

0:34:100:34:12

Congratulations, Parin.

0:34:160:34:17

Come and take your place in the final alongside Ash and Alan.

0:34:180:34:21

Sorry! So sorry!

0:34:210:34:23

-Very cruel for you, Sarah.

-I've...

0:34:250:34:27

I've just been saying that you should always go with

0:34:270:34:30

your first instinct, stick with it.

0:34:300:34:31

-And that's why!

-Oh, Sarah.

0:34:310:34:33

Never mind!

0:34:330:34:34

For the rest of you, I'm afraid that victory, today, proved impossible.

0:34:340:34:38

We'll see you tomorrow for our last day.

0:34:380:34:41

But for Alan, Ash, and Parin, it's time for the final.

0:34:410:34:44

APPLAUSE

0:34:440:34:47

Alan, Ash and Parin, we got there in the end.

0:34:510:34:55

There's £1,300 in today's prize pot.

0:34:550:34:58

Only one of you can win that money,

0:34:580:35:01

and get the chance to face the £10,000 question.

0:35:010:35:04

Now, Alan, you won a final yesterday, you got through to

0:35:040:35:08

the £10,000 question, you managed to hold on to £1,200, but

0:35:080:35:12

you didn't get to release the money from the massive exclamation mark.

0:35:120:35:16

I'm hoping, but I've got to get there first.

0:35:160:35:18

You have to get there first. Ash, you've been in a final before,

0:35:180:35:22

didn't get through to the £10,000 question.

0:35:220:35:24

Parin, first time in a final.

0:35:240:35:28

-Yeah.

-Out of nowhere.

0:35:280:35:31

I still can't believe it.

0:35:310:35:33

You will each start with ten lives.

0:35:330:35:36

Questions are on the buzzer.

0:35:370:35:39

Buzz and get one right, you knock a life off both your opponents.

0:35:390:35:42

Buzz and get one wrong, you lose one of your own lives.

0:35:420:35:46

However, some of the questions are impossible,

0:35:460:35:49

which is to say there is no answer, the question is illogical,

0:35:490:35:53

it makes no sense, it's preposterous. For example,

0:35:530:35:57

for which film did Alan Rickman receive his first Oscar nomination?

0:35:570:36:01

Alan Rickman never received an Oscar nomination,

0:36:010:36:04

so that is an impossible question.

0:36:040:36:07

If you think you've spotted one of those, all you have to do is buzz in

0:36:070:36:11

and say impossible, and that will mean double trouble

0:36:110:36:14

for your opponents, as they will both lose two lives.

0:36:140:36:18

But if you say that a question is impossible when it isn't,

0:36:180:36:21

or give any other answer to an impossible question,

0:36:210:36:24

it's you who will lose the two lives,

0:36:240:36:27

so you need to tread carefully.

0:36:270:36:29

Good luck.

0:36:290:36:31

Which Canadian born singer had a 2015...?

0:36:310:36:34

-Justin Bieber.

0:36:350:36:36

..had a 2015 UK number one single with the song Love Yourself?

0:36:360:36:41

It is Justin Bieber. Ash and Alan, you lose a life.

0:36:410:36:44

Who wrote the 2009 Man Booker Prize-winning novel Wolf Hall?

0:36:460:36:51

-Alan.

-Hilary Mantel.

0:36:510:36:53

It is Hilary Mantel.

0:36:530:36:55

Who played Jonathan Pine in the 2016 BBC drama series The Night Manager?

0:36:570:37:02

-Ash.

-Tom Hiddleston.

0:37:030:37:05

It was Tom Hiddleston.

0:37:050:37:07

In which year of the 1980s did Margaret Thatcher resign

0:37:080:37:12

as Prime Minister? Parin.

0:37:120:37:14

False. Er, impossible.

0:37:140:37:16

I will accept that, Parin. You said impossible just in time.

0:37:160:37:19

Ash and Alan, you lose two lives.

0:37:190:37:21

Which London Underground line runs between

0:37:240:37:26

Brixton and Walthamstow Central? Alan.

0:37:260:37:29

Impossible.

0:37:290:37:31

It's not impossible. It's the Victoria line.

0:37:310:37:33

You lose two lives, Alan.

0:37:330:37:34

In A Nightmare On Elm Street,

0:37:360:37:38

what is the name of the character who preys on teenagers...?

0:37:380:37:42

-Alan.

-Freddy Krueger.

0:37:420:37:43

..who preys on teenagers in their dreams?

0:37:430:37:45

It is Freddy Krueger.

0:37:450:37:47

Prior to 2012, when had the Olympics last been held...?

0:37:490:37:54

-Alan.

-1962.

0:37:540:37:57

..when had the Olympic last been held in London?

0:37:570:37:59

It was 1948.

0:37:590:38:01

Which British monarch succeeded John II?

0:38:030:38:06

-Ash.

-Impossible.

0:38:080:38:09

It is impossible.

0:38:090:38:11

There has not been a British king called John II.

0:38:110:38:14

Alan, you're down on one life.

0:38:150:38:17

The Roman settlement of Verulamium

0:38:170:38:19

was on the site of which present-day English...?

0:38:190:38:22

-Ash.

-St Albans.

0:38:220:38:24

..site of which present-day English city?

0:38:240:38:27

It was St Albans.

0:38:270:38:28

That was your last life, Alan.

0:38:290:38:31

Unlucky - you're eliminated.

0:38:310:38:33

In which decade of the 20th century was James Joyce's Ulysses

0:38:330:38:37

first published?

0:38:370:38:39

-Ash.

-1920s?

0:38:390:38:42

It was the 1920s.

0:38:420:38:43

In which year did Denmark adopt the euro as its national...?

0:38:450:38:49

-Parin.

-Impossible.

-It is impossible.

0:38:490:38:52

It still uses the krone.

0:38:520:38:54

Which Adele studio album features the song Love Me Like You Do?

0:38:560:39:00

-Parin.

-Impossible.

0:39:020:39:04

It is impossible.

0:39:040:39:05

It's not an Adele song, it's an Ellie Goulding song.

0:39:050:39:08

Ash, you have one life remaining. Parin's still on three.

0:39:100:39:14

Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon married which future king in 1923?

0:39:140:39:19

-Ash.

-George VI.

0:39:190:39:21

It was George VI.

0:39:210:39:22

Ash, you're on one. Parin, you're on two.

0:39:230:39:27

Which US city is the main setting for TV drama The Wire?

0:39:270:39:32

-Parin.

-Impossible.

0:39:320:39:34

It's not impossible, Parin.

0:39:340:39:36

It's Baltimore,

0:39:360:39:38

meaning that you lose your last remaining two lives.

0:39:380:39:41

Huge commiserations to Alan, and especially to Parin,

0:39:430:39:47

a cruel way to go out, but we will see you next time.

0:39:470:39:50

APPLAUSE Very well done though, Ash,

0:39:500:39:53

you hung on in there. It's time to face the £10,000 question.

0:39:530:39:56

So, Ash, after a very exciting final, you are today's winner,

0:40:030:40:07

with £1,300.

0:40:070:40:10

That's lovely, but you could be leaving with a whole lot more if you

0:40:100:40:13

can answer the £10,000 question.

0:40:130:40:16

You want to go on this trip down the Silk Route, right?

0:40:160:40:19

Yes, that's right.

0:40:190:40:20

So that's what we're going to try and achieve here.

0:40:200:40:23

-OK.

-I'm going to show you nine answers, and then ask a question.

0:40:230:40:26

Three of the nine answers are correct.

0:40:260:40:29

If you can find them all within ten seconds, you win that £10,000.

0:40:290:40:33

That is the good news.

0:40:330:40:35

The less good news is that three of those answers are wrong.

0:40:350:40:39

Pick any of those, and you won't win the £10,000.

0:40:390:40:43

The bad news is that three of the nine answers are impossible.

0:40:430:40:47

If you give me any of those answers, you will lose the £1,300 as well.

0:40:470:40:53

OK. Here it is.

0:40:530:40:56

Today's £10,000 question.

0:40:560:40:59

I hope it's fallen kindly for you.

0:41:000:41:02

It's on Food And Drink.

0:41:030:41:05

-Well, I like eating.

-There we go, then.

0:41:060:41:08

Good luck.

0:41:090:41:11

Here are your nine answers.

0:41:110:41:13

And you're looking for wine-growing regions that are in France,

0:41:260:41:32

and your time starts now.

0:41:320:41:35

Champagne...

0:41:350:41:36

..Chardonnay, and Burgundy.

0:41:400:41:44

Let's start with champagne.

0:41:470:41:48

Is champagne a wine-growing region in France?

0:41:490:41:52

Yes, it is. APPLAUSE

0:41:550:41:57

Edging closer to those 10,000 pound coins.

0:41:570:42:01

You also said Burgundy.

0:42:020:42:04

-Yeah.

-Is Burgundy a right answer?

0:42:040:42:08

It is! APPLAUSE

0:42:110:42:13

Now just one answer -

0:42:140:42:18

we need Chardonnay to be a wine-growing region in France.

0:42:180:42:22

It isn't, Ash, I'm so sorry.

0:42:320:42:35

-It's an impossible answer.

-Yeah.

0:42:350:42:37

Chardonnay is a variety of grape.

0:42:370:42:40

The right answer you were looking for was Medoc.

0:42:400:42:44

Of course it was.

0:42:440:42:46

The other impossible answers were Merlot,

0:42:460:42:48

and Sauvignon, also varieties of grape.

0:42:480:42:52

I'm afraid you've won nothing, this time, Ash,

0:42:520:42:55

but everyone gets a second chance on this show.

0:42:550:42:58

Let's hope you get another shot at the £10,000 question

0:42:580:43:02

on our last show tomorrow. APPLAUSE

0:43:020:43:04

So, Ash didn't win today, but we will see her next time.

0:43:060:43:10

This has been !mpossible, the quiz where anything is possible.

0:43:100:43:13

Goodbye.

0:43:130:43:15
