Preview – Only Connect: The Grand Final

Only Connect
Programme Name: Only Connect - TX: n/a - Episode: n/a (No. n/a) - Picture Shows: Victoria Coren Mitchell - (C) RDF Television - Photographer: Patrick Olner

The quiz show that is home to some of the world’s most complex questions has finally gone through its equally complex qualifying process to at last reach the final.

Joining Victoria Coren Mitchell tonight are the Cosmopolitans and the Verbivores as they tackle all kinds of cruel conundrums and connecting walls, while being asked things like the connection between “The Property of a Lady”, “The Hidebrand Rarity”, “Risico” and “007 in New York”.

There has been one issue concerning this series though, that is best highlighted by the fact this is programme has to be the subject of the only preview in the Radio Times where it has a comment in block capitals demanding that show return to a Monday night slot. Since moving to Friday Only Connect’s ratings have fallen (the BBC were also showing things like Room 101 at the exact same time on BBC One for a long while), and it seems to have been a bad move.

Only Connect is on BBC Two at 20.30.
