Question Problems 20th/21st November

After the problems experienced with question distribution last week, it has been decided that those matches that could not be played will be rescheduled until later in the season and will be played as double-headers on the dates of the return fixtures (12th/13th March 2018).  An extra set of questions will be provided for these matches.

Wirral Player on Mastermind

Ian Jacks of the Plasterers Arms will be appearing on Mastermind this Friday 3rd November at 8.00pm on BBC2.  He will be answering questions on The Alexandria Quartet by Lawrence Durrell.

Please note that this heat was postponed due to the fact that one of the specialist subjects was the US version of House of Cards (featuring Kevin Spacey).  It is not know when (or indeed if) this heat will be transmitted.
