The Questions

Monday 19 April 2021 [Series 5 Episode 31]

[S5Ep31] Team name: Sweet Charity

Round 1: The 10 types of nut sold in Holland and Barrett [As of September 2020, as listed under “select category” on the “Nuts” page of the company website; botanically, some of these items would be counted as seeds, fruits or legumes, but all are regarded as nuts for culinary purposes.]

Round 2: 10 surnames of people called Jane [“The ‘Tenable’ Tower will show 10 clues relating to well-known historical or fictional figures commonly known by the first name Jane; we are looking for the 10 corresponding last names.”]

The clues: Third wife of Henry VIII / Singer, starred in 1998 series ‘The Cruise’ / Sleuth in Christie’s ‘4.50 from Paddington’ / Track-suited ‘Glee’ coach Sue Sylvester / Bubble in ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ / The ‘nine-day’ queen of England (1553) / Leading chimpanzee expert / ‘Barbarella’ star, made over 20 workout videos / Sister of Michael in Disney’s ‘Mary Poppins’ / Wrote ‘Sense and Sensibility’ (1811)

Round 3: The first 10 Elvis Presley Top 10 singles with two-word titles [According to the Official Chart Company as of January 2020; does not include any song titles that include hyphenated words, or words with apostrophes; words that are in brackets will be counted, so “(Let me be your) Teddy Bear” would not be acceptable.]

Round 4: The last 10 presidential surnames of five or fewer letters [The last 10 different surnames, up to and including the incumbent as of 21 January 2021; Martin van Buren is not included in this list as his surname is “van Buren”.]

Round 5 (The Captain’s Round): 10 ‘The Lord of the Rings’ characters by actors [“The ‘Tenable’ Tower will show the names of 10 actors who appear in the 2001 film “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” directed by Peter Jackson; we’re looking for the names of the characters they played in the film.”]

The actors: Viggo Mortensen / Liv Tyler / Ian Holm / Sean Bean / Cate Blanchett / Ian McKellen / Orlando Bloom / Dominic Monaghan / Billy Boyd / Christopher Lee

Final Round: Countries: The first 10 two-word countries after Marshall Islands alphabetically [“ … for fairness, North Macedonia is not ‘Tenable’ as it’s only changed its name recently”.]
