Anyone else watch this last night?
Messier number of Orion's Nebula.
boy looked like he was not in on the joke.
I beat the university challengers on the connecting wall, too. Proud moment.
During the recording, I flirted with him outrageously because I thought it would make our viewers laugh. I’m sure at least 75% of them are in love with him, whatever their general inclinations. The secret truth is, he actually brought out - more than anyone I’ve ever seen, more than chubby toddlers at the zoo, more than puzzled babies in tiny prams, more than clumsy kittens fighting with a sofa - my maternal instincts. If I had a son, I would want him to be like Alex Guttenplan.
He’s just utterly gorgeous. All bespectacled and long-haired and pudgy-cheeked, all shy and stammery in the green room, but absolutely fizzing with knowledge and speed of thought. It’s as though he comes alive at the ringing of a quiz show bell. He’s like a perfect baby quizzer, like a Gambler or a Crossworder or any of our other geniuses, but in super-cute youngster form. I could not love him more. It was terribly hard to keep treating him with the respect any visiting contestant deserves, because I kept wanting to hug him and feed him cake.
All I can really tell you is that I have never struggled so hard to stop myself addressing someone as 'Poppet'.
everytime he said 'Lion'
everytime he said 'Lion' he sounded like a three year old being taught to say the word for the first time.

Top Gun on the wall was pretty easy, I thought.
As was crown-ey logos.
I was flying from the off, then it got rock-solid after the Q without U one (which I was sniffing around re:Q but didn't nail the not U bit).
Bagged a godd few in the missing vowels round.
I get a bit sad when it finishes. It should last for an hour.
we're looking for teams of three players who share a common passion, ability or profession, to pool their combined wits to solve fiendish conundrums and vexing puzzles.

He's a mate of mine from university and a top bloke as well as being a quiz maestro.
On the show, at least. Incredibly so.
