The categories are Cack, Fruit, XB7"%A~+9=D and I.M.r2D2.

At the end of the round, Team A have 5 points and Team B have 3 points.

Vic asks a tiebreak question and Angelos gets it right.


Mutants have invaded Dave Myers's parish. Their fingers contain a substance that will turn him into one of them. Dave has to identify their celebrity faces to repel them. The prizes are a light and (if he identifies all the mutants) a £5 sex voucher.
