The format here is the same as in earlier pieces such as this one from last month: a list of the “Tenable” challenges, a note on how the teams fared, and then the answers.

[I am still catching up with these episodes, answers will appear in the days ahead.]

The Questions

Monday 28 October 2019

[s4ep11] The Northern Souls

Round 1: The 10 words in the NATO Phonetic Alphabet that contain two of the same letter [The letters do not have to be next to each other; Juliett, which can be spelt with one or two “T”s, is not in this list.]

Round 5 (The Captain’s Round): The last 10 Tom Hanks films [The last 10 films in which Tom Hanks has an acting credit, based on the year of general release in cinemas as given on IMDb.com as of 27 June 2019; this only covers films that were on general release in the UK, so “The Circle” and “Ithaca” are not “Tenable” answers; does not include documentaries or TV movies, or series, or films where he only appears as himself; the list does include voice performances.]

Final Round: Film Musicals: The first 10 rhyming words in the song ‘Summer Nights’ from ‘Grease’ [The words at the end of each pair of lines rhyme with each other; this list contains the 10 words that are in the first five rhyming pairs at the end of each line.]

 

How the teams fared

Here’s a list of how each team performed in their jackpot rounds: how many team members made it to the final round, how much they were playing for and whether they won the prize fund.

Note: where a team did not get all 10 answers in the final round, the answers that caught them out are listed here as well.
