    You are aware of how much I charge to hire out evil chortles and sinister music...?

    Are you all able to access and hear this (and no it's not the first question!)

    It plays OK here at Curnow Towers, Dave. Very catchy!

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    It's blocked here on my office PC, but I'm sure all will be well at home.
    I’m being extremely clever up here and there’s no one to stand around looking impressed! What’s the point in having you all?

    Well, oddly enough it plays fine at work, but at home it wants me to download the file
    :boo: :hiss:

    It's the same web browser, on different Operating Systems.

    Well it's only a teeny file if you have no option to download it.

    So what prizes galore has Nyder in store? There's no Planet Skaro cheque book and pen I'm afraid. But third place prize it's

    The mystery prize!! Ooh err. Now that IS exciting. Duncan - don't worry - it's not another K9 keyring. But that doesn't matter cos you'll do better this year

    2nd place - you need never be disorganised for the whole of 2015

    yes it's a Doctor Who diary.

    And first place....sausage roll ........ sorry ..... drum roll......

    It's the ubiquitous £200 in Amazon vouchers.

    Oops - too many zeros ..... £2

    Oops - not enough zeros .... £20

    Good luck!!

    Works for me too.

    I have a feeling I'm not going to do so well this year, I just have a bad feeling about it...or is that just the sinister nature of the quiz?

    The time is nearly upon us ..... the pain starts on Monday. For all those unfamiliar with the quiz, every day in December I'll be posting something for you to identify. It could be a picture, an audio clip, a phrase etc. Some are Who related, some are not. I think I've gone for a 60/40 Who/Non-Who combination again.

    The main point to note is DON'T POST YOUR ANSWERS ON THIS THREAD - because you're in direct competition with everyone else! Send me a Direct Message (DM) with your answer.

    There'll be some days where you can play a "joker" to earn you double points. The rules for playing jokers are slightly different this year, I shall explain more tomorrow. I hope you will join in the fun for the very third Fiendish Festive Quiz.

    This year you are allowed TWO jokers. One must be used for Who questions, and one must be used for Non-Who questions. Here are the days in December when you can use your “Who Joker”:-

    2nd / 7th / 10th / 12th / 20th / 23rd

    And these are the days when your “Non-Who Joker” can be used:-

    1st / 3rd / 6th / 11th / 14th / 15th / 18th / 21st / 22nd

    You can either post on this thread stating what days you want your jokers played, or private message me if you want to keep it secret! You can either decide now when your joker days are going to be, or leave it and see how the quiz progresses!

    Thank you!

    Hi Nyder,

    Do we have to say in advance which days we want to use our Jokers - or can we use them after we've seen the questions for the day
