To the joy of many one of Britain’s trickiest quizzes is back; to the annoyance of those same people, it is still going out on Fridays rather than Mondays.
Nevertheless, Victoria Coren Mitchell returns to present a new series full of troublesome connected clues, connecting walls and missing vowels. Tonight’s episode sees a team dubbed “The Parishoners” led by a vicar taking on “The Stewards”, made up of members of the Cambridge Tolkien Society (why Cambridge has a society dedicated to someone who went to Oxford, I don’t know).
Figuring out who will win of course is nothing compared to just trying to answer the questions.
Only Connect is on BBC Two at 20.30.
