Pat Gibson won the Champion of Champions series final of Mastermind shown on BBC Two this evening. I was delighted when I saw what his specialist subject was: Great Mathematicians! I thought that was my cup of tea but to my embarrassment, I could only answer two or three of the questions asked.
Mastermind questions are amazingly hard. If the subject was my own life I would be lucky to get half right!

Mastermind is arguably the toughest general-knowledge quiz game in Britain. At times Im delighted when I can answer so much as one question.
