That question did make sense to me
They just found another albeit slightly too complicated / convuluted sequence that also worked with the first three so she had to give it to them

It's always better early on in the series when the questions can be a bit friendlier

I wouldn't mind if I had anyone to watch it with tonight so I could pretend I'd spotted it myself

It looked like the producer had trawled the wards of secure institutions for some of today's contestants.

I couldn't understand a word the hairy man said, perhaps he'd got his beard stuck in his mouth.

Well, I thought some of them were shit, and bend their so called "rules", but that's a grievance I have to carry with me.

HOWEVER, perhaps I am being completely dense (I am VERY tired), I still cannot make head nor tail of this one, if someone can explain it to me.........................

Consecutive consonants (Sequence)

HIRSCHSPRUNG has 7
KNIGHTSBRIDGE has 6
STRENGTHS has 5
LENGTH has 4

WHA? :S

You know, the answer hit me at about 5 this morning - I was so tired and had alphabetical stuck in my head before and couldn't see the wood for the trees.

A question short of a pile. Is that like a sandwich short of a picnic?
