There’s a particularly jolly air, even for this most habitually cheery of quiz shows, including a very spirited and now customary singalong led by host Victoria Coren Mitchell and plenty of chat among the teams.
Maybe it’s because by the third round everyone knows what’s what in
, so the Fire-Eaters (they like paprika) and the Korfballers (they like this particular Dutch sport) relax into the contest.
There are some amazing answers to some bamboozling questions. One is so recondite that, when it’s cracked, another contestant looks stunned, adding “Now I get it.”
And The Muppets feature more than once – not that this is a clue or will help you in any way.
Victoria Coren Mitchell hosts as the Fire-Eaters take on the Korfballers in this third-round match, with a place in the quarter-finals of the quiz at stake. They must use patience, lateral thinking and sheer inspiration to make connections between groups of four things that may appear at first not to be linked, with one set of clues consisting of occipital nerve, apostle James, Antilles and spotted woodpecker.
