Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 22-7-2017

Now that’s sad … 

Deborah Watling has died!

The actress played Victoria opposite Patrick Troughton’s Second Doctor: back in 1967 and 1968.

AND cropped up in The Newcomers, Rising Damp and Danger UXB.

She’ll be missed.


Had I thought of it, last night?

Had I thought of it, last night, I’d’ve possible sat in with some of Ms Watling’s Dr Who stories: the only two that survive are The Tomb of the Cybermen and The Enemy of the World survive in complete form.

I didn’t, eventuality.


I went for the opening two episodes of The Man in the High Castle.

Hmmm … 

I don’t know if I’m totally convinced, yet.

It is, after all, rather slow.

But is something I’ll be watching more of.


Let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Olga* and Debbi† putting in their answers: with both scoring five out of five.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How To, License and video

Q1) 22nd July, 1099, saw Godfrey of Bouillon named Protector of the Holy Sepulchre.   The Holy Sepulchre is in which city?
Q2) Which country was struck by twin terror attacks: on 22nd July, 2011?
Q3) 22nd July is the Feast of Mary Magdalene.   In some Christian traditions, she’s seen as a repentant what: prostitute, drug addict or murderer?
Q4) Willem Dafoe was born on 22nd July, 1955.   He got nominated for playing Elias: in which Oliver Stone film?
Q5) Finally … The USA started rationing what, on 22nd July, 1942: gasoline, sugar or rubber?
Here’s yesterday’s questions and answers …

Here’s a song … 

And a thought …
“I am probably more critical of myself than anyone else, I am very tiny - 5’1” and a half inches - so there’s nowhere for weight to hide.”
Bonnie Langford, born 22nd July, 1964.
Today’s questions will be answered in tomorrow’s Teaser.

Have a good day.

*        Well, that’s ME embarrassed, Olga!   Remind me to try and avoid speaking Spanish!   :D   At ANY rate, I managed to catch the first two episodes of The Man In The High Castle, last night. I’m not sure I’m convinced: it IS a bit of a slow burner, after all.   I’m planning to give at least the first series a go, at least.

†        Never seen it, Debbi: although it’s been one of those that’s been floating around for a while.   Apparently, one of Yusuf’s songs — recorded back when he was Cat Stevens — was used in it.
