    Hey everyone, Balkwill-Western here.
    I suppose I'll start by thanking everyone who made this possible. To Paxo and the University Challenge staff, to Cardiff Uni and all the friends we made along the way. Congrats to Newnham (and you guys better win this thing now) and a big shoutout to the rest of the Cardiff team. It's been great fun quizzing with you all and as we go our separate ways I wish you all the best in the future.
    Naturally I'm disappointed that we had to exit the competition, but I don't think I could've asked for a better way for it to happen. You win some and you lose some, and the questions just didn't favour us this time around. That's not to detract from Newnham of course; if any of you are reading this then allow me to complement you on your breadth of knowledge and especially your buzzer skills. You blew us out of the water in that regard.
    Jolly good show everyone.
    And pool's closed.

    A truly excellent match. I would have been happy to see either team advance but Newham's genuine enjoyment of the competition and the rarity of an all female team making a deep run makes them my personal favorite to win the season.

      @wideeyedraven15 Did you watch the first round match where Chen accidentally leaned on the buzzer, interrupting Paxman? "Oops sorry, didn't mean to buzz"... Arguably cost her team the game!

      @covkid52 really? She did pretty well in the other matches and far better than your efforts in any such regard and before you say a thing in retort, I’m a former champ of such a thing and I can tell you it’s not easy and this is a team competition. Shut it.

      @Alani slightly disrespectful + not how it works. you can only swap out a teammate for your substitute once in a series and usually it never happens unless the person is unable to compete.

    I think that may have been most thrilling finale to a UC match I can remember. This wasn't just a nail biter for me, I would have bitten into a tree had there been one next to me. Absolutely elated that Newnham went through! They have nerves of steel. What a tremendous team! And what an incredible effort from Cardiff, too.

      @Kay Waters Kay, the comments are hidden from view when this page appears. You need to scroll to see them. ESclips has been designed that way. People do not automatically see any posts when they call up a video. Moreover, everybody usually knows not to read the comments first on boards like this one. Last but not least, what makes you think that I am responsible for the screen design? It's not my fault that my post appears at the top. However, one post has to, and depending on your settings, the one with the most likes usually does! Why are we having this discussion?

    Sometimes one team just gets that extra bit of luck they need. Ellis guessing 18th not 19th century created the tie she went on to win for her team.
    Likewise when one from each side buzzed for Scott Joplin, Newnham got 10+ the full 15 whereas had the others got even just the starter the final score would have been Newnham 115 Cardiff 150 so totally different.
    And a netball tie-breaker with a team of 4 ladies didn't hurt (although I noticed Cardiff's captain Zoe Revell buzzed a fraction of a second later as well).

    Thanks again, Dave! Today I'm continuing my French-themed Meal of the Match with Steak au Poivre! I searched through several recipes to find one I liked, that had both cognac and red wine. I guess I should warn everyone first: if you're thinking of making this, have a fire extinguisher handy. Because the recipe calls for igniting about a third of a cup of cognac in a pan. Better safe than sorry. I served this with green beans almondine and risotto. Dessert was chocolate mousse, and all of it enjoyed with a merlot! Fantastique!
    About the match itself...WHAT AN EXCITING GAME! I can honestly say I was overjoyed at the result, yet at the same time sad to see the other side go. I feel that these two teams could have met in the finals. As always, my best to all the members of both teams. And I wish each team member the best of success in their future endeavors! See you all next week!

      @Chris Hobbs Thanks, Chris. Yes, that's right (episode 8). In their first round match against Courtauld, Newnham accidentally buzzed on the last question and didn't know the answer, thus losing 5 points. Had they got the starter correct, it would've resulted in ten points and a tie-break at the gong! (episode 13).

      Don't think he was struggling with his diagnosis at all. Made it publicly very clear that he's got Parkinson's. No doubts about the diagnosis. But compared with earlier pre-Parkinson's episodes, clear he's no longer able to smile, etc., which is why the ungenerous think he's a grim bastard.

      @Susan Harris it’s called Son of Rambow. it’s a movie about two kids who idolise Rambo and decide to make their own version of First Blood. So…

      You are the second person that keeps saying the son of rambow, when it's Son of Rambo.

    It's quite annoying that the last of most of the three bonus questions is by far the easiest. Why do they arrange it like this?

    When Paxman says "with an average age of" does he mean of the team or the university?

      One university cannot have an average age.

      @Gerrard the OP meant the average age of students in the university or the average age of the team, not the average age of the rocks and stones that built the university ;-)

      The university would be about 600 years old!

      She was a total monster on literature and film! Such a joy to watch. Absolutely brilliant! Gutted to see her depart from the competition this early. Her team would have made the semis easily.

      Would like to also reiterate this. I watched an episode with my Jordanian partner and there were like maybe one or two questions about the Middle East. You really notice how uk/Eurocentric the questions are - and granted it is a uk show, but still…

      We are seeing a trend of non-Euro students being very quiet. I think it demonstrates UC’s heavy focus on western canon. Even Imperial Zeng from last year wasn’t much chop on the poetry of the Restoration or on 19th century German philosophers.

    Ellis is phenomenal but they performed poorly in the bonus questions. They're just not great enough to get much further I guess, but we shall see. Loved the match nonetheless!
