Re: Continuous Quiz: Tenpin Bowling

Benny. I am in awe of your knowledge of the penny dreadfuls. You have nailed that tricky final pin (Yes of course its Sparky!!) and also identified Buster as the o-o-o. I will yield the baton to you with the willing passivity of Cuthbert Cringeworthy if you can tell me why he is unlike the other 9.

Two Protectors as I recall were Robert Vaughn and Nyree Dawn Porter both of whom cut their teeth on earlier hit shows The Man from UNCLE and The Forsyte Saga respectively. I can't place the third one though who was a sort of a Q figure or gadget man. Two o...
