35. Was Quasimodo answerable to the Dean of Notre Dame?

23. The History Boys could lead to Bennett.

37. As a watcher of BBC Breakfast, I could see a pth to Paul Danson.

08. Raymond (Ray) Bigger. If so, perhaps a good job the R did not stand for Richard, in which case the abbreviation might have unfortunate.

45. Various possibilities on surnames, but that shrinking violet Alan Green goes one better.

39. I was not familiar with any old term for the Niederrhein area, but I guess that Graham Frankland might br the answer here.

As for the dodgy feet in 03, I did watch a match last season refereed by Lee Corns, but unforunately that was in the North West Counties League!
