DW question in Daily Telegraph quiz

Post by Steve Whatley » Sat 16 Feb, 2013 11:18:32

Don't get too excited, but in the Weekend section of The Daily Telegraph today, question 20 of the Pubquiz (sic) set by Gavin Fuller is: 'Who was the master spy created by Dennis Wheatley in a series of 12 novels set at the time of the French Revolution?'

So the saga has not been completely forgotten...[font=Courier New] [/font]

It was probably just the right number of letters. (I don't know the puzzle...) :(

Jim, it is just a quiz, so the answer doesn't have to fit in with anything else. But I agree that would seem a likely reason for including a DW question in, say, a crossword puzzle.

There are twenty numbered questions (of various degrees of difficulty), plus another - tagged on at the end - which rejoices under the title of 'Snorter of the week'!!!

I doubt very much whether many people under forty know the DW answer.[font=Courier New] [/font]
