Hi guys! I just got back now :D . Okay, I believe Sir Hugh de Witless escorted a dungeoneer.

Amy says Sir Hugh de Wittless - let's see what that scores her...

Sir Hugh kindly agreed to escort Series 5's Sarah, but only because it was "a bit like rescuing". Amy - like Ben, you score 3 points.

So, Annie, can you wow us by finishing off this pass with a score lower than 3? It's over to you...

I'm a bit scared this may not count, but I'll say Brother Mace. Pretty sure he escorted Christopher(?) onto Smirkenorff's back, which would have meant walking through a large door with him!

2 points for you there, Annie, and the lowest score of the round so far - well done! Mace's little jaunt onto Smirkenorff's back with Chris does indeed have the potential to throw a spanner in the works for this question, but fortunately Mace also escorted Series 4's Nicky through a portal in the Forest of Dunn, so he definitely counts! Now, let's take a look at the scoreboard at the end of the first pass.

AMY

ANNIE

So, we now come back down the line for the second pass. Annie, it's your turn again, and you are our low scorer. Our current high scorer is Nick on 6, so if you score 3 or less, you're definitely through to Round 2. What is your second answer?

Phew... I don't remember him escorting Nicky!

Really torn here, I can think of loads but the scores are very tough to predict, and I'm not sure whether to risk another slightly dodgy answer! Think I'm gonna play it safe and try Ridolfo.

Nice one, Annie! That's your second pointless answer in as many games, so give yourself a well deserved pat on the back. Ridolfo escorted January for a brief period after she released him from a pillory, but none of our 8 people remembered that. Annie scores no points, keeping her total at 2 and seeing her safely through to the next round.

Amy, it's you again. Our current high scorer is still Nick on 6. If you score 2 or less, you're definitely through to Round 2. What is your second answer?

I hope our host remains true to the "Pointless" tradition of everyone having two chances to reach the final. *whimper*

Well done, Amy - Fatilla scores you 2 points, bringing your total to 5 and seeing you safely through to the next round. Fatilla escorted Simon to Oakley's glade after Pickle had convinced him (Fatilla) that he (Simon) was a military forager.

Ben is next to answer. Our current high scorer is still Nick on 6. If you score 2 or less, Ben, you're definitely through to Round 2. What is your second answer?

Ben has told me via PM that his second answer is Sylvester Hands - let's see what that scores him...

Image

Sadly for Ben, Hands never actually went through a door or portal with a dungeoneer, despite all his attempts to "make friends" with them. So, Ben, you score the maximum of 8 points... but this round is by no means over yet!

NICK
Answer 1 - 6
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

BEN
Answer 1 - 3
Answer 2 - 8
TOTAL - 11

AMY
Answer 1 - 3
Answer 2 - 2
TOTAL - 5

ANNIE
Answer 1 - 2
Answer 2 - 0
TOTAL - 2

Nick, it's all down to you. You are on 6 points. If you score 4 or less, you're through to Round 2 with Annie and Amy. If you score 5, you will be in a tiebreak situation with Ben. If you score 6 or more, Ben will be through to Round 2 with Annie and Amy. What is your second answer?

I really don't know here. I've got several answers in my mind, but I can't decide. Well, I'm going to take a chance and hope that our eight people didn't think of Casper the Key as a character. My answer is Casper the Key.

Nick says Casper - let's see what that scores him...

Image

It's happened - Nick and Ben are tied on 11 points! 8-o

NICK
Answer 1 - 6
Answer 2 - 5
TOTAL - 11

BEN
Answer 1 - 3
Answer 2 - 8
TOTAL - 11

AMY
Answer 1 - 3
Answer 2 - 2
TOTAL - 5

ANNIE
Answer 1 - 2
Answer 2 - 0
TOTAL - 2

So, another answer is required from Nick and from Ben. Nick, you're up again. Please nominate another escorting character.

So, Ben, you've got 3 to beat - what is your third answer?
