    Missed posting yesterday and the delay in rushing may have helped me to a 4/7

    7: Maximum Style

    4-6: Valley of the Shadows

    0-3: RIP

    I am genius!! Well not really, I wasn't sure about most of these and guessed generally based upon the maxim "why would they include an answer like that if it wasn't right" which very much seemed to work this week.

    A 3 for me.
    Considering I got zero two weeks ago, and 1 last week, that's an improvement. Probably peaked tbh.....

    Thanks for posting @Blond Bombshell.

    A 4 which I am proud of, this Beeb quiz has been a bit of a minefield for me.

    Pays to still watch university challenge after all these years.

    A rather hopeless 6 today - my wild guesses netted me precisely zero

    11, a new PB.

    Just as well I am into Burns Night and Spielberg. Might celebrate this PB with a dram and a close encounter tonight!

    7 for me. Seems to be my normal score on this one.
    1 or 2 on the BBC one, 7 for this one.

    Thanks again for posting @Blond Bombshell.

    8/15 doubted myself on two educated (?) guesses, though to be fair did get 2 complete guesses right so about fair I'd say.
    Pleasant light workout for the old grey matter, thanks @Blond Bombshell
