Entertainment Quiz #8 Answers

Question 1 typo 'tub or lard' corrected - thanks M Freeman - 6 Nov 07. Question 5 ("In which UK TV series did actor Neil Morrissey make his first television appearance?") was replaced. The answer was wrongly shown as Boon, instead of Juliet Bravo, although due to the difficulty in being sure that this was not pre-dated by an earlier minor role, we decided to use a new question altogether - thanks for the correction M White - 1 Oct 2010.
