1 An actor
2 Out to dinner (table 16, Chez Louis, Oldhammer Street)
3 David Tennant
4 Yes, currently Dr Who
5 Reiterated

"I once was Cassanova and may be again if there's a second series". Ah, but here the hypothesis falls down a bit as Cassanova died in the last episode.

Good one.......I'll give it a twist of my own because the clue is in question 4:D

1. Secret agent (For her Majesty's Secret service, aka 007)
2. Nowhere & Everywhere (you can send me a postcard to MI6, Vauxhall bridge, London)
3. James Bond
4. Bond, James Bond (the clue was here:D )
5. Craig, Daniel Craig (2 thumbs down, especially with the life jacket when speed-boated to promote his new character). From the riddle, MCC seems to share my sentiments.

Had a computer meltdown yesterday, managed to resolve things by reloading Windows XP service pack 2, hopefully everything is ok now, fingers crossed.

None of the above.

Ah, but that did not stop Dynasty.

Giacomo Girolomo Casanova (de Seingalt) was imprisoned for being a magician in 1755, he escaped in 1756, maybe he 'died' to escape the good life?



Tarek's layout has the gist of what I'm after, but it is not Bond.

For number 1, although I got a What? it could easily be a Who? It depends. Its the same words however you look at it.


Clue: Something relating to McGill (a character)should help you on your way. This is a bit hard, so to nudge you in the right direction, as Police Chief Mike Dorsett in '87, was he untouchable.

Clue: The Muscat the Butler served was nice, but he was a bit of a dodgy character.

Ok, since people seem to be cottoning on to what the answers to the riddle are, you can also explain the clues as well.

Including the next one there are 5 clues to solve as well.


Clue: On a motorway I am never an overtaker.

You got me on this one underquark, 'canapé ', I'd always thought a canapé was a small piece of bread or pastry with a savoury topping.
Perhaps you mean canopy? There were stripy things involved but were they from China, I'm not sure. It's been nearly 40 years since I seen the program.

Clue: Oh what a carry on, is that fenella fielding I hear?

Yes, and although she was in the mother country of one who said "Hi-de-Hi" she didn't quite manage the same accent, if I recall.
