I assume your talking about Mrs Mitchell's early career; I don't think there was anything commercially released. She wrote about it in 2002, an article is called 'I made a porn film for my 30th'; it's quite funny. Then there's her book on the subject 'Once more with feeling'.

Brilliant and complex as ever! Obviously only managed 2/10. Knew about the Aztecs but not what EPT stood for or the other facts. Are you watching her on Taskmaster? Another fact is that she had not learnt to ride a bike until the show. Too busy being supremely intelligent! Thanks WV!

Proud of my 3/10, I would have bet anything that the reviewer clue was pointing to Roger Ebert. At least I learned something new!

Fam, I watched the first two episodes of Taskmaster, and to be honest, it was kind of 'meh', at least to me; I may not have been in the right mood, and will try it again later.

More recently, however, I have been immersing myself in series 17 of Only Connect, and thinking that making these grids has improved my lateral thinking, as I have gotten several more questions right than I normally would.

@WV Which version were you watching? UK, NZ or US? Biased obviously but UK is the best ( for the presence of Greg Davies as the quintessential taskmaster ), NZ a close 2nd and US pretty awful. It depends upon the personalities as much as the format so maybe being familiar with the comedians plays a part, but I came to know and love some of the NZ contestants.

I haven’t watched any OC recently. I’m very poor on the earlier sections but sometimes quicker on the missing vowels and I’m sure I’d be better at the wall now. Drives me crazy when they don’t systematically work through all the options when they have 5 possibilities in a category.
