Knightmare reminder on Eggheads

Post by Drassil » Wed Sep 28, 2016 6:01 pm

In Knightmare Series 4, Mellisandre wanted to know what the Romans call Colchester. [ITV Children's Classics clip]

On Eggheads this week (Series 18 Episode 1), Jeremy Vine wanted the same information. [BBC iPlayer link - 6:18]

This is the same Jeremy Vine who was once credited with "playing Knightmare" during CGI-based election coverage (see Knightmare.com article).

Well, it does begin with a 'C', even if a little more than a stone's throw from Scotland.

Speaking of Cs, I heard that CJ de Mooi had been arrested in connection with misdemeanours in the Netherlands. Be careful what you publish, people! :D

Today's Countdown Conundrum was FALSEHOOD.

Pushing the boundaries a bit here, but the guest in Dictionary Corner was named Barry.

Yesterday's Conundrum (before being unscrambled) was 'DUNGEONER'... hmmmm!

Did anyone spot Ayoade’s reference to “the dungeon master” in Medieval Zone in New The Crystal Maze this week?

Yep, I spotted it... and I laughed out loud!
