British Comedy Quiz Page 6

Just numbers 1, 8 & 10 for me this week. I knew the surname for # 5, which I assumed the question was going to be until I read further, but couldn't bring to mind his Christian name. And don't understand why I didn't know # 9. The others were all outwith my field of knowledge.

The new quiz is up, and it's my questions this week! Good luck everyone, let us know how you do...
(Perhaps unsurprisingly, it was the first time I got 10/10!)

Lol, the only quiz I've ever got 100% on is the one I wrote :) 9/10 and 4/5 for me this week, probably my second-highest score. Had to have a long think about the Fawlty Towers question though, going through a good chunk of the episode in my head.

Good one Plate. I looked at it and thought oh no, I won't many again, but got 7 & 3, so obviously had some luck this time. When's your next one?

Many thanks for the feedback, everyone, interesting to see the different outcomes.

F**king Hell, got 8/10 and they were all guesses except Young Ones and Baddiel (which I wouldn't've known without the prompt and still nearly got wrong).

Good stuff MM, I knew you'd get the Young Ones question right if you did it, as you've spoken highly of it a few times before.
You weren't tempted to choose 'Dr. Michael's House of Monks' for the Steve Coogan series though? 😉

Cheers Alfred. Not sure when I'll do another one yet, maybe a couple of months or so.

Yes they are surprisingly time consuming things to compile, especially a whole 15 Qs with 75 options for answers.

I've got to about 8 Q&A sets and now I'm struggling, but other things take over. I'll need a free day to come up with the rest I think.

I bleedin' LOVE The Young Ones! Almost as good as Spiceworld.
I actually remember watching that episode the first time it came out, and pissing myself over that very line. I must've been about twelve years old.

Just 3 for me this week, although I can't understand how I answered two wrong as I clearly knew the answers. I just didn't pick them. 😵

My usual 2

4/10 for me this week - 2, 3, 4 and 6. Never would've guessed the first one! (Well, I would eventually of course, as there are five options. But you know what I mean). The only one I was 100% sure of was question 2!

I knew the You Rang M'Lord question and the Liver Birds question and correctly guessed the Jack Dee one from the alternatives given.

Another round from Niki Walton this week, and 4/10 score for me. (Hoping to get over half marks again one day..!) Got questions 1, 3, 4 and 5. I should've got question 2 right, but went for one of the other answers as it also seemed familiar.

7/10. All but 4, 7 & 8. Last time Niki set one I knew six of them. More my era!

11/15. Not bad.

I'd never heard of any of those other titles before I made them up, I swear :)

Actually Q1 was a late substitute in place of a question which was rather too close to one of yours from a few weeks back. I had tried Q3 out on workfriends last year and I'm glad to hear some of them remembered the answer.

Strange about that other title, then!
Q3 was a good question because it took me a while to think, but I remembered a couple of specific episodes where her job was sort-of part of the plot.
