Martin Bell is like David Attenborough's less glamorous cousin.

Yes I saw Michael Fish on tv tonight ....I wouldn’t have recognised him .......he’s really , really old 

Almost knocking him down was my late MiL’s claim to fame. Mind you with her driving, there was a long list of near misses.

Honestly Baz, she used to ask, “Who wants to come with me?” and people would run for the door.

My dad used to say, she’d never have an accident but she’d cause loads.🙈

🤣🤣🤣🤣it got like that with Mr B towards the end 🤣🤣🤣

Only Connect. 007s battered them.

 

I got the answer "Smell my cheese you mother". 

Not an Alan Partridge fan, so that whole section was lost on me, I'm afraid...

 

I'm glad the Endeavours are still in the competition, but the 007s were extremely good.

Was very impressed by the bloke who got the "Inside No.9" question. The Radio Times reviewer was annoyed with himself for not getting it, but I'm a fan too and I thought it was very difficult: technically, I don't think the 007s completed the sequence, but they got the points for knowing what the sequence was.

 

I got very excited early-on as I thought I'd got my first 5-pointer of the series with the Olympics question, only to discover I'd got it completely the wrong way round...

I watched an episode of  “inside no. 9 “ the night before and still didn’t work it out!  The missing vowels round is my specialty 😇

 

I have been watching the two parter on BBC Two about the paedophile priest Peter Ball: Exposed:The Church's Darkest Secrets. The establishment does not come out well in this, nor does senior members of the church or Prince Charles.

 

16 months in jail and the church stll support him when he leave prison. They need to examine the church at a forensic level.

Still not managed to get a 5-pointer on this series of "Only Connect", but I - eventually - felt quite pleased with myself tonight. After an initial struggle to get anything, I managed three 3-pointers in a row right at the end! 

 

Oh, and whoever constructed this week's "Missing Vowel" round deserves a bonus. Totally insane!

Yes, the missing vowels round was very good tonight. Listening to the Forrest working out the wall was great too. Lots of ideas being thrown in, but they manage to distill them down and get the answers!!!
