Thanks for the support everyone - a pity it couldn't quite propel us to the final!
I don't mind admitting I went for a very large drink as soon as recording ended, and (without giving anything away) because I stayed until the end of the series I also drank a large proportion of the winning team's champagne in the bar on the final night - which I suppose was some sort of consolation! Actually, having just watched it back I feel less downhearted than I expected to. Apart from the Dogme 95 question which I should have got at clue #2, I don't think we could have performed much better, and we certainly benefited from having the easier of the two Walls. Our opponents' amazing work on the NT quotations and Lehrer 'Elements' questions alone fully justified their win, and we really couldn't have lost to a nicer trio of people.
I do urge you all, incidentally, to watch the remaining two episodes of the series. If you thought last night's was a thriller ... Replies:
