10/10, giving 31/40 so far.

I got 3, 6, 7, 8 and 10.

No idea about 2, but I think it's brilliant.

Definitely know 8 and 10 but most of the rest are way outside of my areas of expertise  - save for number 6 where I have to be awkward and ask; 15s or 7s?

I know both but want it to be 15s as my namesake (surname only but a distant relative) scored two tries in the victory! If only I had possessed a tenth of his abilities!

(on the down side it has been alleged that he was a Soviet intelligence officer. I am not now, nor have I ever been, a Soviet intelligence officer, although a certain Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin and I did share the same rank briefly in the 1980s. But nothing else Tovarisch. And in different organisations, if I needed to make that clear?).

Terrible round for me so I won't waste everyone's time writing 'Don't know' on them all! I'm pretty confident on 1 & 8, and I could take an educated punt on 7, but that's about it.

Roy

My score: 1/10 definitely. 2/10 possibly (Rugby Union question, as I only know for 15s). 5/10 if I'd have taken the time to have worked out the James Bond film title, or scored my correct guesses on the detective story and the reported last words as correct.

Gwydion. You're lucky. My namesake was either an English footballer/football manager, or a British fictional soap opera character who suffered from erectile dysfunction.  ;D

Not sure which of these is worse...

Brave of you to admit to it all though.

Gwdion, interested to find out what you think 6 is.

Any thoughts on 10, anyone?
