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

Vaughan was one of the advisors on the second winning team from Series 2, and scores Nick 1 point.

Annie, it's you again. The good news is that you are definitely through to Round 3, as the current high scorer is Nick on 10 and you can only score a maximum of 9 because you are on 3 at the moment. But the lower you score here, the more chance you have of going first in the head-to-head, if you make it that far.

I'm so surprised both Ray and Dominic only scored 1, I thought they'd be among the top answers, so I've no idea what to go for here. Perhaps Dominic's teammate Praveen will be equally obscure?

It seems that Praveen is slightly more memorable than Dom!

Samantha was an advisor on the first winning team from Series 7 (along with the two Helens, of course) but no one remembered her this time!

Ross, we come to you to finish the round. If you score 5 or less, you will be through to Round 3 with Rosey and Annie. If you score 6, you and Nick will be in a tiebreak situation.

Wow, I thought Sam would be a popular answer too (whereas I couldn't for the life of me remember what her teammates were called). I know nothing!

Like you, Annie - the only other advisor from Julie's team I could remember was Samantha. ;D

Ross says Mary - let's see what that scores him...

Image

No one remembered her either. She was one of Julian's advisors, of course. Let's see the whole board for that one:

BEN - 4
DUNSTAN - 4
JULIE - 4
MARK - 4
BARRY - 3
DICKON - 3
JULIAN - 3
ALAN - 2
DEREK - 2
NATHAN - 2
OLIVER - 2
PRAVEEN - 2
SIMON - 2
ALEX - 1
BECCA - 1
DANIEL - 1
DOMINIC - 1
HELEN - 1
RAY - 1
TIMOTHY - 1
VAUGHAN - 1
JAMES - 0
JOHN - 0
JONATHAN - 0
MATTHEW - 0
MARY - 0
SAMANTHA - 0

At the end of Round 2, the scoreboard looks like this:

ROSS
Round 1 Score - 3
Answer 1 - 1
Answer 2 - 0
TOTAL - 4

ROSEY
Round 1 Score - 3
Answer 1 - 1
Answer 2 - 0
TOTAL - 4

ANNIE
Round 1 Score - 1
Answer 1 - 2
Answer 2 - 2
TOTAL - 5

NICK
Round 1 Score - 8
Answer 1 - 1
Answer 2 - 1
TOTAL - 10


And so Nick is the first champion to leave us. Bad luck for stumbling across the only wrong answer from the first two rounds, Nick - this ended up scuppering you, but I hope you've enjoyed playing. For Ross, Rosey and Annie, though, it's time for...

ROUND 3

Remember, only two of you will make it through to our Head-to-Head final - whoever scores highest in this round will be eliminated. We gave 6 people 100 seconds to name...

SPELLS CAST BY TEAMS ON LEVEL 3

So that's any spell (cast in the normal way, with the chant "Spellcasting") cast by any team at any point on Level 3. The spellcasting must have been completed and the spell must have worked.

Ross, please set us off again.

Ross says GRIP - let's see what that scores him...

This spell was given by Merlin to Leo's team in Series 3, and was used to freeze Medusa's stony stare. And it scores Ross 1 point.

Annie says SHADE - let's see what that scores her...

Image

A very shrewd answer there. I recall that a couple of shows ago, none of the answerers was able to remember that SHADE had been awarded by Honesty Bartram, and it seems that this spell is still as obscure as ever. As a few people know (but not many) Honesty Bartram gave this spell to Daniel in exchange for a Sight Potion, and it was used to sneak past two miremen on the Golden Galleon. Annie, you score nothing.

ROSEY

We now come back down the line for the second pass. Annie, it's you again. If you find another pointless answer, you will definitely be in the Head-to-Head final.

VISOR was given out and used for Play Your Cards Right twice in Series 7 - Grimaldine gave it to Alex's team, and Greystagg gave it to Barry's team. Annie, you score 2 points, bringing your total to 2.

Ross, it's you again. If you score 0, you will join Rosey in the Head-to-Head final. If you score 1, you will be in a tiebreak situation with Annie. If you score 2 or more, you will be out and Annie will join Rosey in the Head-to-Head. What's it to be?

This is really tough and I don't know what will be obscure but I'll go with SUN.

Ross and Annie are in a tiebreak situation, so another Level 3 spell is required from each of them. Ross, you're first.
