I always get the question at number 8 "wrong". The "correct " answer is a cop out which would get a growl from me.

I'm back - when I'm on holiday I have only intermittent web access, usually on a confounded laptop, which would do nothing for my score.

Fourth place with 9/10??? Is it safe to assume that nobody else had heard of that "classic" show either?
