Certain subjects have now been banned because they have been so popular they have run out of questions to ask.
Do you have a topic you feel confident enough to choose as your 'specialist subject'?

"Contestants on the BBC quiz show Mastermind will no longer be allowed to pick Fawlty Towers, Blackadder or Roald Dahl as their specialist subjects as the producers have run out of questions. 
Mark Helsby, Mastermind’s producer, has revealed that some subjects are so popular that they have been “exhausted” for new questions. Father Ted and the Chronicles of Narnia have also been removed.
Since Mastermind and its famous black chair was launched in 1972, it has become renowned as one of the toughest quiz shows in Britain, with contenders answering questions on a chosen subject before a general knowledge round. The programme was initially hosted by Magnus Magnusson but the questions are now asked by John Humphrys, who also presents Radio 4’s Today programme."

Well I’m not menopausal and I don’t think Syl is either. Perhaps that’s the excuse Mrs Maddog gives for not wanting to stroke your beard? Not tonight love I’ve got a headache. Razz

'the glorious History of Newsfix' Cool Cool Cool Cool

I think this show is like 'Hard quiz' and if your topic is too broad or too specific they can get you with difficult questions. So I'd probably pick a specific Dinosaur and Study the details before the show.


P.S Hard quiz is Funny, the Host is a stand up Comedian

Apparently 262 people wanted to answer questions on the Harry Potter films last year.

I studied maths and science at uni so I'd  choose those. 

I enjoy reading about the royal families of Europe & Russia and I could chance that as my chosen subject too.
