It was the great Irish singer-songwriter

0:00:210:00:24

Ronan Keating who said, "You say it best when you say nothing at all."

0:00:240:00:30

A very romantic thing to say to a woman,

0:00:300:00:31

of course, but a terrible quiz strategy.

0:00:310:00:34

When Ronan came on the show, he scored zero.

0:00:340:00:37

Doubly frustrating when you realise

0:00:370:00:39

he secretly knew three of the connections on the Wall -

0:00:390:00:42

Dublin Landmarks, Ballads,

0:00:420:00:43

and Things That Are Like A Roller-coaster.

0:00:430:00:46

Hoping to fare better tonight are...

0:00:460:00:48

..on my right, Tom West -

0:00:480:00:51

a solicitor who received a football medal for coming on once

0:00:510:00:54

during the season and scoring an own goal.

0:00:540:00:56

Hugh Trimble, an English teacher

0:00:580:00:59

who once wore biking leathers

0:00:590:01:01

in an adaptation of Shakespeare.

0:01:010:01:03

And their captain, Gail Trimble,

0:01:030:01:05

a classics lecturer

0:01:050:01:06

who appears in a popular Latin educational DVD, playing a bear.

0:01:060:01:10

All fans of figurines,

0:01:100:01:12

they are the Meeples.

0:01:120:01:14

Now, in your Only Connect history,

0:01:140:01:15

you beat the Parishioners most recently.

0:01:150:01:17

How competitive are you feeling about tonight's game?

0:01:170:01:20

Very competitive.

0:01:200:01:21

It's like when you're playing a tile-based board game

0:01:210:01:23

and three of you are trying to finish the same city.

0:01:230:01:26

You will be competing against...

0:01:260:01:28

..on my left...

0:01:280:01:29

..Luke Kelly, a former holiday rep

0:01:290:01:31

who once won a packet of crisps

0:01:310:01:33

for singing karaoke in a Swedish shopping centre.

0:01:330:01:35

Rob Cumming, a Maths graduate

0:01:350:01:37

who runs, draws, paints, scuba-dives

0:01:370:01:40

and tends to his pet rabbit, Buster.

0:01:400:01:42

And their captain, Julia Hobbs.

0:01:420:01:45

A Modern Languages graduate who's frightened of crossing the road.

0:01:450:01:48

All in the quiz business,

0:01:480:01:50

they are the Inquisitors.

0:01:500:01:51

-You beat the Snake Charmers in your last game.

-Yes.

0:01:510:01:53

What do you think is the secret to Only Connect success?

0:01:530:01:56

Getting the Wall - which we've, so far, not managed to do!

0:01:570:02:01

What you tend to do is, you get two groups, usually...

0:02:010:02:03

-Yes.

-..and then struggle with the last two.

-Yes.

0:02:030:02:05

It seems to have followed us, so, this time...get the Wall!

0:02:050:02:09

Good luck!

0:02:090:02:11

We tossed a coin before the match.

0:02:110:02:12

Meeples, you won the toss

0:02:120:02:14

but you've elected to put the Inquisitors in first.

0:02:140:02:16

So, Julia, please choose a hieroglyph.

0:02:160:02:18

-Lion, please.

-Lion.

0:02:180:02:20

What is the connection between these apparently random clues?

0:02:200:02:23

Here's the first.

Oh, hang on! Ice hockey, field hockey.

0:02:530:02:56

Eton Fives, Rugby Fives, I think...

0:02:560:02:59

Next, please.

0:02:590:03:00

I think they're all versions of the same...

0:03:000:03:02

BELL

0:03:020:03:03

Go on, Luke.

0:03:030:03:04

-Oh.

-They can all...

-All versions of the...

0:03:040:03:06

All, like, hockey - both of them are a version of hockey.

0:03:060:03:10

Rugby League, Rugby Union.

0:03:100:03:12

Give me a nice, clean summary of your answer, please.

0:03:120:03:14

They are different versions of the same sport.

0:03:140:03:16

You knew it after...

0:03:160:03:18

-..only three clues, didn't you, Luke?

-Yeah.

0:03:180:03:20

They are all versions of the same sport.

0:03:200:03:21

What sports?

0:03:210:03:22

-Hockey.

-Hockey.

-Um...

0:03:220:03:24

-Fives.

-Fives.

-Mm-hm.

0:03:240:03:26

-English Carom?

-No.

-No? But that's the one you knew.

0:03:260:03:28

I, I know, but I think it's, like, it's some kind of bowling?

0:03:280:03:31

-It's billiards.

-Billiards.

-And the last one, rugby...

-Rugby.

0:03:310:03:33

-..of course.

-Yup.

-Well done, for one point.

0:03:330:03:36

Meeples, what would you like?

0:03:360:03:37

Twisted Flax, please.

0:03:370:03:38

Twisted Flax. What does the... CHIME

0:03:380:03:41

Ah! It's the music question!

0:03:410:03:42

What is the connection between these musical clues? Here's the first.

0:03:420:03:46

# So tell me where you from where you want to go

0:03:460:03:49

# But she walk past me like I ain't say a word... #

0:03:490:03:51

No idea. Next?

0:03:510:03:53

# It's how it started

0:03:530:03:55

# Just an example of how another brother can trample

0:03:550:03:58

# Ruin your life... #

0:03:580:03:59

I think it's Express Yourself.

0:03:590:04:01

-Express Yourself?

-Yeah. De La Soul. Think it's De La Soul.

0:04:010:04:04

Next, please.

0:04:040:04:05

# You have so many relationships in this life

0:04:050:04:08

# Only one or two will last

0:04:080:04:10

# You go through all the pain and strife, you turn your back... #

0:04:100:04:13

Next!

0:04:130:04:14

# Once there was this kid who... #

0:04:140:04:17

-That's Crash Test Dummies, isn't it?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:04:170:04:21

THEY CONFER BELL

0:04:210:04:25

They all contain the sound, "Mmm" as part of the title.

0:04:250:04:27

Yes, they do!

0:04:270:04:28

What did we hear?

0:04:280:04:30

-The last one was Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm by the Crash Test Dummies.

-Yes.

0:04:300:04:34

-The previous one was MMMBop by Hanson.

-Mm-hm.

0:04:340:04:36

And the others were not ones I know.

0:04:360:04:39

Things That Make You Go Hmmm...

0:04:390:04:41

C+C Music Factory, and Mmm Yeah - Austin Mahone featuring Pitbull.

0:04:410:04:45

You said that so beautifully.

0:04:450:04:46

So many of our contestants have terrible sinus problems.

0:04:460:04:49

Most of them would really struggle to give the answer to that,

0:04:490:04:51

so particularly well done.

0:04:510:04:53

The Hanson brothers...

0:04:530:04:55

..have a brewery based in Tulsa.

0:04:550:04:57

-What do you think that brewery is called?

-MMMHop?

0:04:570:04:59

I mean, it is called MMMHops!

0:04:590:05:02

Very well done, well guessed.

0:05:020:05:03

If we had bonuses,

0:05:030:05:04

you would get one for that.

0:05:040:05:06

Back to Inquisitors for a choice.

0:05:060:05:08

Eye of Horus, please.

0:05:080:05:09

The Eye of Horus.

-She does.

Two seconds.

0:05:500:05:51

BELL

0:05:510:05:53

Oh, um...

0:05:530:05:55

..Hitchcock.

0:05:550:05:56

Is the right answer!

0:05:560:05:58

What do you recognise?

0:05:590:06:01

-Stuart Pearce's autobiography is called Psycho.

-Yes.

0:06:010:06:03

-November birthstone is Topaz.

-Yes, 1969 film set in the Cold War.

-Er...

0:06:030:06:10

Cutter of mouse tails, I can only think of as being The Farmer's Wife.

0:06:100:06:13

-The Farmer's Wife, one of Hitchcock's silent films.

-Oh! OK.

0:06:130:06:17

And Allison Williams in Girls, is she called Marnie by any chance?

0:06:170:06:20

-She is called Marnie.

-She is!

-Ah.

0:06:200:06:22

-There we are.

-The connection's Alfred Hitchcock. Well done.

-Phew!

0:06:220:06:25

Do you know, when Pearce signed for Nottingham Forest in 1985,

0:06:250:06:28

he was so nervous that his football career wouldn't pan out

0:06:280:06:31

that he advertised,

0:06:310:06:32

in the match day programme,

0:06:320:06:34

his services as an electrician?!

0:06:340:06:36

Those were the days, weren't they?

0:06:360:06:38

-Mind you, I'm not sure I'd want an electrician called Psycho!

-No!

0:06:380:06:41

-It's not really what you look to them for, is it?

-No.

0:06:410:06:43

Very well done. Back to you, Meeples, for a choice.

0:06:430:06:46

-Two Reeds, please.

-Two Reeds.

0:06:460:06:47

What is the connection between these clues? Here's the first.

0:07:090:07:10

THEY CONFER

0:07:120:07:19

Next?

0:07:220:07:24

-Pigeons.

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:07:240:07:26

BELL

0:07:260:07:28

Pigeons?

0:07:280:07:29

Is the right answer!

0:07:290:07:31

Which of these clues did you know about?

0:07:310:07:34

Um...to deliver mail, I suppose, is the most plausible! But...

0:07:340:07:39

Yeah, I don't really know about any of them, to be honest.

0:07:390:07:42

This first clue is from a long time ago - 18th-century Rothschilds,

0:07:420:07:45

they stayed ahead of the markets by sending pigeons across Europe

0:07:450:07:49

with information, and the...the, er...the legend is that they

0:07:490:07:53

knew the result of the Battle Of Waterloo before the government did.

0:07:530:07:57

Cos their pigeons came in so quickly.

0:07:570:07:58

The second clue is a great story.

0:07:580:08:01

There was a company called Unlimited, wanted to demonstrate

0:08:010:08:03

how bad the internet speeds were in South Africa.

0:08:030:08:05

So they sent a pigeon 60 miles with a data stick,

0:08:050:08:08

and by the time it arrived,

0:08:080:08:10

only 4% of the data had arrived over the internet!

0:08:100:08:13

The pigeon was faster.

0:08:130:08:14

And the third one is to do with the Allies on D-Day.

0:08:140:08:18

All connected by pigeons! Well done.

0:08:180:08:20

-Inquisitors, what would you like?

-Horned Viper, please.

-Horned Viper.

0:08:200:08:24

What is the connection between these clues? Here's the first.

0:08:240:08:27

THEY CONFER

0:08:290:08:32

Next, please.

0:08:320:08:33

THEY CONFER

0:08:350:08:39

Oh! Oh, oh, oh! Is it, um...

0:08:390:08:42

..university, polytechnics that have become universities?

0:08:420:08:45

-Ooh, yeah!

-That's a university name, I think.

0:08:450:08:47

-That sounds good!

-Yeah.

0:08:470:08:48

-BELL

-OK.

0:08:480:08:50

My esteemed colleague...

0:08:500:08:53

..thinks that these are all polytechnics

0:08:530:08:55

that have become universities.

0:08:550:08:58

It is the name change that happened

0:08:580:08:59

when polytechnics became universities!

0:08:590:09:01

-Very well done!

-Well done.

0:09:010:09:02

-Very good.

-There are all the clues.

0:09:020:09:04

What did Anglia Polytechnic change its name to?

0:09:040:09:07

Is that Anglia Ruskin University?

0:09:070:09:09

It is now!

0:09:090:09:10

Initially, it was Anglia Polytechnic University.

0:09:100:09:13

Bit resistant to change. They are now Anglia Ruskin University.

0:09:130:09:16

So there are signs up in Cambridge that say,

0:09:160:09:18

-"Cambridge - Home to Anglia Ruskin University."

-Yeah.

0:09:180:09:21

Very well done, for three points.

0:09:210:09:23

One question remains, the Water question, for you, Meeples.

0:09:230:09:25

I expect there'll be picture clues.

0:09:250:09:27

Something connects them. What is it?

0:09:270:09:29

Your time starts now.

0:09:290:09:30

THEY CONFER

0:09:320:09:39

0:09:390:09:40

THEY CONFER

0:09:420:09:48

Next?

0:09:510:09:53

-Two Fat Ladies, so it is, it's 88, it's all 88.

-Yeah.

0:09:530:09:57

-I don't know the first one, but shall we go for it?

-OK, yeah.

0:09:570:10:01

BELL

0:10:010:10:02

88.

0:10:020:10:03

88 is the right answer.

0:10:030:10:04

Didn't need to see the fourth clue.

0:10:040:10:06

What's that fourth clue?

0:10:060:10:07

-That is the DeLorean in Back To The Future.

-It's the DeLorean.

0:10:070:10:10

-The greatest film ever made.

-It IS the greatest film ever made!

-It is.

0:10:100:10:12

-Yeah.

-And why would that be a clue?

0:10:120:10:15

Er, because that's how fast you have to go to...go back,

0:10:150:10:18

forward, in time, if you have the right energy source.

0:10:180:10:21

88mph!

0:10:210:10:22

88mph, although the website Popular Mechanics calculated

0:10:220:10:25

that that DeLorean could not have achieved the speed of 88mph

0:10:250:10:28

in that parking lot.

0:10:280:10:29

You've got to pass the time somehow, haven't you, waiting for the grave?

0:10:290:10:32

They calculated that.

0:10:320:10:33

And what are the other clues?

0:10:330:10:35

-Two Fat Ladies.

-Mm-hm.

-So that's 88 in bingo calling.

-That's right.

0:10:350:10:38

-A piano, which has 88 keys.

-That's right.

0:10:380:10:41

And something to do with the constellations.

0:10:410:10:43

-Are there 88 constellations?

-There are 88.

0:10:430:10:45

That's absolutely right.

0:10:450:10:46

Do you know the full name of that great woman,

0:10:460:10:49

Clarissa Dickson Wright from the Two Fat Ladies?

0:10:490:10:52

Her full name was Clarissa Theresa Philomena Aileen Mary

0:10:520:10:56

Josephine Agnes Elsie Trilby Louise Esmeralda Dickson Wright!

0:10:560:11:00

And they changed their name

0:11:000:11:02

to the same thing university!

0:11:020:11:04

The available options.

0:11:040:11:05

People have no imagination these days.

0:11:050:11:07

Very well done.

0:11:070:11:09

That means, at the end of Round One,

0:11:090:11:10

the Meeples have four points,

0:11:100:11:12

the Inquisitors have five.

0:11:120:11:13

Sequences Round now, and, Inquisitors,

0:11:160:11:18

you'll be going first again.

0:11:180:11:20

-Which hieroglyph would you like?

-Lion, please.

0:11:200:11:22

OK. You're about to see the first in a sequence.

0:11:220:11:25

I want to know what might come fourth. Your time starts now.

No, it's first, Mexico.

0:11:520:11:54

-BELL

-First - Mexico.

0:11:540:11:56

Is the right answer!

0:11:560:11:58

-And why?

-Oh, it's Spanish-speaking populations.

0:11:580:12:01

Spanish-speaking populations by size, that's right.

0:12:010:12:03

There are 46 million people in Spain, 48 million in Colombia,

0:12:030:12:06

52 million in the USA -

0:12:060:12:08

41 million native speakers and 11.6 million bilingual

0:12:080:12:11

speakers. And how many, do you think, in Mexico?

0:12:110:12:14

No, it's over 100 million, I think.

0:12:170:12:19

-121 million Spanish speakers in Mexico.

-Wow! God.

0:12:190:12:23

-Didn't you used to live in Spain, Luke?

-I did.

0:12:230:12:25

How good is your spoken Spanish?

0:12:250:12:26

It's pretty fluent.

0:12:260:12:28

-Can you say...

-Uh-oh!

0:12:290:12:31

"This quiz is more difficult than I expected,

0:12:310:12:33

"but the host is younger and more attractive"?

0:12:330:12:36

Este concurso es mas dificil de lo que habia imaginado,

0:12:360:12:40

pero la presentadora es mucho mas guapa de lo que imaginaba tambien.

0:12:400:12:44

That's nice! Why can't that be the trailer?!

0:12:440:12:47

Why can't it be the trailer?

0:12:470:12:49

Absolutely lovely!

0:12:490:12:51

Meeples, what would you like?

0:12:510:12:53

-Two Reeds, please.

-The Two Reeds.

0:12:530:12:54

What will come fourth in this sequence?

0:12:540:12:56

Here's the first.

0:12:560:12:57

THEY CONFER

0:12:580:13:05

Next?

0:13:050:13:07

THEY CONFER

0:13:070:13:11

-BELL

-LHR.

0:13:110:13:14

Is the right answer. And why's that?

0:13:140:13:16

They're airports in the UK,

0:13:160:13:18

abbreviations, going up to the one with the most flights, busiest.

0:13:180:13:22

-Airports in London.

-London.

-London.

0:13:220:13:24

London airports by size, and the code for London Heathrow, LHR.

0:13:240:13:28

Well done. Didn't you used to live in Luton Airport, Hugh?

0:13:280:13:30

No!

0:13:310:13:33

I was just trying to balance out the anecdotes!

0:13:330:13:37

Very well done. A friend of mine who's very frightened of flying,

0:13:370:13:40

even more frightened than me,

0:13:400:13:41

once went and spent the weekend in Gatwick Airport.

0:13:410:13:43

Because he thought, "You could spend the weekend there."

0:13:430:13:46

If you went to sleep on a chair -

0:13:460:13:47

people often have to when their flights are delayed.

0:13:470:13:49

You can shop in the shops

0:13:490:13:50

and eat in the places,

0:13:500:13:51

and you'd be so happy that you didn't have to get on a plane

0:13:510:13:54

you'd have a much better time than if you actually flew anywhere!

0:13:540:13:57

Inquisitors, back to you for a choice.

0:13:570:13:59

Twisted Flax, please.

0:13:590:14:00

The Twisted Flax.

0:14:000:14:01

These are going to be picture clues.

0:14:010:14:03

What would come fourth of these pictures? Here's the first.

0:14:030:14:07

THEY CONFER

0:14:080:14:12

Next, please.

Next, please.

0:14:180:14:20

THEY CONFER

0:14:210:14:29

BELL

0:14:430:14:45

A picture of somebody skydiving?

0:14:460:14:49

Not the answer, I'm afraid.

0:14:490:14:51

Meeples, you've got the chance of a bonus point.

0:14:510:14:53

Is it a parachute with three ropes?

0:14:530:14:56

Somebody parachuting with three ropes.

0:14:560:14:58

You don't know what these people are doing?

0:14:580:15:00

You're my kind of people.

0:15:000:15:01

I don't really approve of this sort of thing. They're base jumping.

0:15:010:15:04

And the pictures denote building, antenna, span,

0:15:040:15:08

I want something that represents Earth!

0:15:080:15:10

-Earth. Different parts of base jumping.

-Hmm.

0:15:100:15:14

What do you think the fatality rate was for base jumping in 2002?

0:15:140:15:17

20%.

0:15:180:15:20

There was one fatality per 60 participants.

0:15:200:15:23

Not quite 20%. Pretty awful.

0:15:230:15:24

Although, here's a good triv fact,

0:15:240:15:25

what job has a fatality rate of one in 11?

0:15:250:15:29

American presidents.

0:15:300:15:32

So, no points there, but for the right reasons, I think.

0:15:330:15:35

Meeples, what would you like?

0:15:350:15:37

-Water, please.

-Yes.

0:15:370:15:38

The Water question. What will come fourth in this sequence?

0:15:380:15:41

Here's the first.

0:15:410:15:42

It's a large amount of time. It's going to...

0:15:440:15:47

Next?

0:15:470:15:48

THEY CONFER

0:15:480:15:53

BELL

0:16:160:16:18

Djibouti.

0:16:180:16:20

-And why would that be?

-It has a silent D...

0:16:200:16:22

-..at the beginning of it.

-Something with a silent D.

0:16:220:16:24

We went with Rembrandt.

0:16:240:16:26

Very well calculated.

0:16:260:16:27

What's going on in this sequence?

0:16:270:16:29

The first one has a silent A at the beginning, cos it's aeon.

0:16:290:16:31

-Mm-hm.

-And the second one has a silent B.

-Mm-hm.

0:16:310:16:34

So yeah, silent C, silent D - alphabetical order.

0:16:340:16:37

Exactly right. I've been given a list of possible acceptable answers.

0:16:370:16:40

Let me run these by you.

0:16:400:16:42

Handsome, sandwich, fridge, knowledge...

0:16:420:16:48

Sometimes I think the people that work on this show can't even speak!

0:16:490:16:53

Edge, bridge - you can hear the Ds in all of these!

0:16:540:16:57

Djibouti, however, I will accept. Very well done.

0:16:570:17:01

-Inquisitors, what will it be?

-Eye of Horus, please.

-Eye of Horus.

0:17:010:17:05

What would come fourth in this sequence? Here's the first.

0:17:050:17:08

THEY CONFER

0:17:100:17:16

Next, please.

0:17:180:17:19

THEY CONFER

0:17:210:17:27

Next, please.

0:17:290:17:30

Oh! Um, so what's next? Is it... Is it...?

0:17:310:17:35

It's going backwards.

0:17:350:17:37

Carrington.

0:17:370:17:38

-BELL

-OK, yeah, go on.

-Carrington.

0:17:410:17:43

Is the right answer.

0:17:430:17:45

And why is it the right answer?

0:17:450:17:46

They are the surnames of the character

0:17:460:17:48

played by Joan Collins in Dynasty, going backwards.

0:17:480:17:51

So she was Carrington, Colby, Dexter. Rowan.

0:17:510:17:53

Alexis Carrington, Colby, Dexter, Rowan.

0:17:530:17:55

They are not Archbishops of Canterbury...

0:17:550:17:57

..as I heard you consider early on!

0:17:570:17:59

I don't think that was on the list.

0:17:590:18:01

The husbands of Alexis in Dynasty.

0:18:010:18:03

Yes, she came into the series, originally,

0:18:030:18:06

as Blake Carrington's terrifying yet beautiful ex-wife.

0:18:060:18:09

She was Alexis Carrington.

0:18:090:18:10

Then she married his great rival, Cecil Colby.

0:18:100:18:12

Under what circumstances?

0:18:120:18:13

Where did that wedding take place?

0:18:130:18:15

-He was on his deathbed, I believe.

-And why was he there?

0:18:150:18:17

I...can't quite remember. Had somebody shot him?

0:18:170:18:20

An evening with Alexis had proved a little bit too exciting...

0:18:200:18:23

-Ah, yes! That's right.

-..for Cecil Colby's...

-Right, yes.

-..poor heart.

0:18:230:18:26

-Yes.

-He ended up in hospital, where she quickly married him.

0:18:260:18:28

Then it was Dex Dexter, then the evil Sean Rowan.

0:18:280:18:31

-What happened to Sean Rowan?

-Ooh, I don't know.

0:18:310:18:33

I'd stopped watching by then.

0:18:330:18:34

Do you know what happened to him?

0:18:340:18:35

-I haven't a clue!

-Literally, it's all just noise, isn't it?

0:18:350:18:38

He was killed by Dex Dexter, the previous husband.

0:18:380:18:42

After he tried to kill Alexis, Dex stepped in.

0:18:420:18:45

I'm in my comfort zone now!

0:18:450:18:47

Very well done.

0:18:470:18:49

Meeples, one question remains,

0:18:490:18:51

the Horned Viper.

0:18:510:18:52

What would come fourth in this sequence? Here's the first.

0:18:520:18:54

Next?

0:18:570:18:58

0:19:020:19:08

0:19:130:19:17

BELL

0:19:170:19:19

-Die.

-That's not very nice!

-Sorry.

0:19:190:19:21

But it is the right answer! And why?

0:19:210:19:24

"Bye-bye, Miss American Pie, drove my Chevy to the levee

0:19:240:19:26

"but the levee was dry, them good old..."

0:19:260:19:28

Let me stop you there!

0:19:280:19:29

We had some beautiful singing from you in an earlier game.

0:19:290:19:32

Why would you be speaking this answer when you could be singing it?

0:19:320:19:35

Come on!

0:19:350:19:37

WHOLE TEAM: # Bye-bye, Miss American Pie

0:19:370:19:40

# Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry

0:19:400:19:44

# Them good old boys were drinking whisky and rye

0:19:440:19:47

# Singing this'll be the day that I die. #

0:19:470:19:53

Very good.

0:19:540:19:55

Absolutely magnificent, Don McLean's classic 1971 song, American Pie.

0:19:550:20:00

Beautiful!

0:20:000:20:02

And that means, at the end of Round Two,

0:20:020:20:04

the Inquisitors have nine points.

0:20:040:20:06

The Meeples have 12.

0:20:060:20:08

And of course we now reach the Connecting Wall,

0:20:100:20:13

the 16 jumbled-up clues that must be sorted into four groups of four.

0:20:130:20:17

You'll be going first this time, Meeples,

0:20:170:20:20

so would you like Lion or Water?

0:20:200:20:22

-Lion, please.

-OK, you have two and a half minutes

0:20:220:20:25

to solve the Lion Wall, starting now.

0:20:250:20:27

There are some, like Kent port-type places. Battle is one.

0:20:300:20:32

Yeah, you've got Importance of Being Earnest characters in there.

0:20:320:20:35

Those vestments, let me do the vestments.

0:20:350:20:38

-Yeah. Surplice, Maniple.

-Yes.

0:20:380:20:41

-Good.

-Well done.

-OK. The Importance of Being Earnest.

0:20:440:20:49

Worthing, Fairfax, Prism and Chasuble. And Hastings.

0:20:490:20:53

No, not Hastings.

0:20:530:20:55

-So...

-Three lives now.

-Plenty of time.

0:20:580:21:00

-OK. So, towns in Sussex.

-Of Britain.

0:21:000:21:04

Tour of Britain, Battle of Britain, Festival of Britain, Brain

0:21:040:21:07

-of Britain.

-Well done.

-And then it leaves...

0:21:070:21:09

Worth, Gatwick, Hastings, Hailsham are all in Sussex.

0:21:090:21:13

I'm pretty sure they're all in Sussex.

0:21:130:21:15

-What about are they all in...

-Well, they're not... Or it could be...

0:21:150:21:19

I was going to say Kent, but Gatwick is definitely in Sussex, isn't it?

0:21:190:21:23

OK, good, so Battle of Britain, Tour of Britain, is it?

0:21:230:21:26

-Yeah, yeah.

-OK!

0:21:260:21:29

What? It's easy, just press it! It's finished, just solve it, quickly!

0:21:290:21:34

Very well done.

0:21:340:21:35

That's four points immediately for the groups -

0:21:350:21:38

and let's go through the connections,

0:21:380:21:39

starting with the blue group, Maniple.

0:21:390:21:41

-They are all priestly vestments.

-They are ecclesiastical garments.

0:21:410:21:45

And the second group, starting Chasuble?

0:21:450:21:47

These are surnames of characters in The Importance of Being Earnest.

0:21:470:21:50

That's exactly right and Chasuble, of course,

0:21:500:21:52

is the red herring for the vestments group.

0:21:520:21:55

Let's move on to the next group, Battle, Tour, Festival, Brain.

0:21:550:21:58

-They can all be followed by "of Britain".

-Followed by "of Britain".

0:21:580:22:03

-And Gatwick, Hastings, Worth, Hailsham.

-All places in Sussex.

0:22:030:22:08

They're all places in Sussex.

0:22:080:22:09

As I mentioned earlier, Gatwick, lovely place to go for the weekend.

0:22:090:22:12

-Of course!

-So, that is four points for the groups you found,

0:22:120:22:15

four more points for the connections,

0:22:150:22:17

a bonus of two for getting it all right.

0:22:170:22:19

That is the maximum of ten. Very well done.

0:22:190:22:21

Let's bring in their opponents now, the Inquisitors -

0:22:210:22:23

give them the other wall, the Water Wall,

0:22:230:22:25

see what they can do about solving it.

0:22:250:22:27

You have two and a half minutes

0:22:270:22:29

to solve the Water Wall, starting now.

0:22:290:22:31

Nanki-Poo, Peep-Bo, Koko and Yum Yum. Yum Yum, Nanki-Poo.

0:22:340:22:40

-Peep-Bo?

-I think so. Koko? No.

-Pish-Tush?

0:22:400:22:44

Pish-Tush, Peep-Bo?

0:22:470:22:48

OK, I tell you what, I think we can great rid of Yum Yum, it's a cake.

0:22:540:22:57

-So is a Berliner.

-Oh, OK, yeah, doughnuts.

-Yeah, doughnuts, yeah.

0:22:570:23:00

-Pattycake?

-Let's give it a go.

-Gravy ring?

-No.

0:23:000:23:04

What about Pish-Tush?

0:23:070:23:09

Berliner. Munchkin.

0:23:090:23:11

Yum Yum, Pish-Tush.

0:23:130:23:15

Berliner.

0:23:150:23:17

Gorillas.

0:23:200:23:22

-Harambe, Guy...

-Koko?

-Yeah.

0:23:220:23:25

-Katisha sounds like a very...

-No.

0:23:250:23:27

Or Xoyo, whatever that is. Oh, that could be another weird cake.

0:23:340:23:36

What have we not had for The Mikado?

0:23:360:23:39

Heaven and Fabric.

0:23:390:23:40

Heaven, Fabric, Koko.

0:23:420:23:45

-Xoyo? Is that one?

-Could be. Yes.

0:23:470:23:49

So we've got...

0:23:500:23:53

-Guy the gorilla.

-Katisha sounds like it could be.

-Katisha, Harambe...

0:23:530:23:57

We've done that.

0:23:570:23:58

Munchkin. No.

0:23:580:23:59

-Yum Yum.

-No, Yum Yum, I think, is still with the cakes...

0:24:020:24:05

Gravy ring must be a cake,

0:24:050:24:06

cos it's not going to be a name or in The Mikado.

0:24:060:24:08

-So what else have we got...

-Guy, Harambe...

-Katisha?

0:24:080:24:12

Could Yum Yum be a gorilla?

0:24:120:24:14

-Give it a go.

-No.

-Try Gravy ring, Yum Yum, Berliner...

0:24:140:24:18

-Cool.

-Three lives, now.

0:24:250:24:27

-Guy.

-Harambe.

0:24:270:24:29

Yeah, and then... Nanki-Poo. That's the group.

0:24:310:24:34

Pattycake. So we've got Pish-Tush, Peep-Bo, Katisha, Nanki-Poo?

0:24:340:24:38

-Katisha doesn't sound very...

-Try Pattycake.

0:24:380:24:40

Not Pattycake, that's from The Mikado.

0:24:400:24:42

-Gorillas. Not got that much time.

-Let's try Katisha.

0:24:420:24:46

That's it. You solved the Wall!

0:24:460:24:48

-Had to happen eventually, very well done.

-Hooray.

0:24:480:24:52

What about points for the connections?

0:24:520:24:54

Tell me about the first group,

0:24:540:24:55

-Heaven, Xoyo or X-O-Y-O, Fabric, Cargo.

-They're all night clubs.

0:24:550:25:01

-They are night clubs in London.

-Yeah.

0:25:010:25:03

What about the green group?

0:25:030:25:05

Munchkin, Gravy ring, Berliner, Yum Yum.

0:25:050:25:07

-They're all types of cake, more specifically doughnuts?

-They are.

0:25:070:25:10

The Gravy ring is a Northern Irish ring doughnut,

0:25:100:25:14

it's the sense of gravy as grease or fat. Not gravy as we know it.

0:25:140:25:18

All types of dough-based food.

0:25:180:25:20

And what about the next group? Koko, Pattycake, Harambe, Guy.

0:25:200:25:24

-They're all famous gorillas.

-Famous gorillas. Absolutely right.

0:25:240:25:27

And the turquoise group, Peep-Bo, Katisha, Nanki-Poo, Pish-Tush?

0:25:270:25:31

They're characters from The Mikado.

0:25:310:25:33

They certainly are - so that is four more points for the connections

0:25:330:25:36

and a bonus of two, so that's a maximum of ten points.

0:25:360:25:39

Let's have a look at the overall scores.

0:25:390:25:42

The Inquisitors have 19 points, the Meeples have 22.

0:25:420:25:47

We are going to play the missing vowels round. Very close scores.

0:25:490:25:53

This will determine who goes and who stays.

0:25:530:25:56

I like both these teams tremendously, so good luck everyone.

0:25:560:25:59

Fingers on buzzers. The first group are all forms of punishment.

0:25:590:26:04

Meeples.

0:26:080:26:09

-Sorry.

-Too long. Inquisitors, do you know?

0:26:090:26:11

-Hundred Lions?

-I'm afraid Hundred Lions is not right. Next clue.

0:26:110:26:15

Meeples.

0:26:160:26:17

-Life imprisonment.

-Correct.

0:26:170:26:19

Inquisitors.

0:26:220:26:23

-Naughty step.

-Correct.

0:26:230:26:24

Meeples.

0:26:280:26:30

-Community service.

-Correct.

0:26:300:26:31

Next category. Real people added to phrases.

0:26:310:26:34

Inquisitors.

0:26:390:26:40

-Don't beat around the Kate Bush.

-Correct.

0:26:400:26:42

Inquisitors.

0:26:450:26:46

-Kill two birds with one Sharon Stone.

-Well done.
