Fifteen questions on general knowledge and topical trivia plus a few jokes every Thursday – how will you fare?
Thursday again, we exclaim with surprise, as if seven rotations of the planet was some kind of innate measure of time rather than an arbitrary distinction that capitalism imposed on us. Anyway, cheer up. Fifteen vaguely topical and general knowledge questions await you, with an extra bonus this week. It is just for fun. There are no prizes. But feel free to let us know in the comments your score, and you could earn bonus points if you spot any oblique nods to Doctor Who. Enjoy!
