Thanks for not giving the result away, Helen!  I watched it yesterday, and I won't give the result away either so as not to spoil it for Joan.  But what about the correct answer given by one of the contestants that was given as wrong by Paxman, and the team penalized 5 points for an incorrect interruption as well?  And it was a WW1 naval question too!

One of the easiest UC questions ever for me as the tiebreaker on the 27th. What two rivers join to form the Shatt al Arab? Very simple if you have spent years transcribing & editing ships involved in the Mesopotamia campaign.
These Christmas UCs seem slightly easier than the normal ones.

Yes, I agree that the questions are slightly less incomprehensible than usual - or perhaps just better suited to the things I know something about.  And I too got the tiebreaker thanks to transcribing in the Red Sea etc.
Looking forward to the final tonight!

Woohoo!!!  ;D ;D ;D

Given that Brit Sci Week started today, and last night we'd already clocked 56,000, it's looking good for getting the challenge of 250,000 classifications. Wouldn't be surprised if we made it to 6/700,000 :)
