The This Time Next Year Game: Big Update

Okay, so three questions were settled in the last day or so:

15: Who's doing the Skyfall theme?  Adele is.  (Guessed by Ads, B-Guymer, Uther Dean, Fizzle, Phil Hansen, Paul F, LM Myles, David Bishop, Penny Heal & Jason Stevens.)


22: Who's the actor who played the Doctor with the biggest following on Twitter at midnight on October 1st?  Now, the original question did say 'in any medium', and a TV comedy sketch is a medium, so I'm giving that to those who guessed Mark Gatiss, whose 232,954 followers easily eclipses his nearest rival.  (Guessed by Jennifer Kelley, Fizzle, LM Myles.)  


25: Did Captain Britain appear in a single frame of a Marvel comic published in September?  Yes, he did, for just a silent couple of panels in Secret Avengers #31.  (Guessed by Tom, B-Guymer, LL, CA Young, Soru, Uther Dean, Nick Pheas, Phil Hansen, Paul F, Michael Lee, James Fairlie, rheitzmann, LM Myles, NJ, Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre, Dean Hazell, Penny Heal & Jason Stevens.)


EDIT: I got that wrong when this update was first published.  I've changed the league table to reflect the real answer.  My apologies. 

So that leaves the league table like this:



L.M. Myles: 9
Paul F: 9
Phil Hansen: 9
RHeitzmann: 9
Soru: 9

Fizzle: 8

B-Guymer: 7
Liz: 7
Michael Lee: 7
Penny Heal and Jason Stevens: 7

Tom: 7
Uther Dean: 7

C.A. Young: 6
David Bishop: 6
Dean Hazell: 6

Jennifer Kelley: 5
Matthew Hyde: 5
Nick Pheas: 5
PSmithsonian: 5
Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre: 5

Ads: 3
James Fairlie: 3
Kendersule: 3
Run Iago: 3

Adam Short: 2
L.L.: 2
N.J.: 2


But there are many more points still to be scored.  You're all doing very well!

    Appeal! Captain Britain appears in Secret Avengers 31. Just. Front page and two panels, no dialogue.


  • Paul Cornell Says:

    You're right, sorry! I've edited to correct for that.


  • Phil Hansen Says:

    Thrilled to get a point for Adele! I can't get that song out of my head -- a great classic style Bond song!

    Also pleased that Captain Britain is still knocking around!


  • Paul Cornell Says:

    I think the last few weeks of the contest are going to be exciting.
