Re(6): Cluesmiths on Only Connect

Yes, well done indeed. But I think she was too kind on the Biblical quote question. I didn't record it, so I can't be sure I'm right, but I think the answer given was "In the beginning" NOT "In the beginning (14)" which would have satisfied the criteria. My guess is that when they gave the answer and were initially ruled wrong, filming had to stop while the behind-the-scenes adjudicators decided that it would do. Then when filming re-started they forgot to give the precise answer which was deemed acceptable. (At least, that is how it worked on Eggheads once.)
