Tea and Jeopardy 05 – A chat with Dave Bradley

By Emma on June 7, 2013

day5The fifth episode of Tea and Jeopardy is now live and you can find it here.

This week the very splendid Dave Bradley, Editor-in-Chief of SFX Magazine, is invited into my tea lair and I reveal my favourite answer to last week’s dilemma. I talk to him about Neil Gaiman, Iron Man 3 and a few other things before throwing him into a perilous situation.

If you love Tea and Jeopardy and want to join the Order of the Sacred Tea Cup, our Patreon page is here.

There’s a question at the end, feel free to leave your answer below but I’m afraid the winner has already been picked. You can find out who it was in episode 6 .

Credits for sound effects can be found here.

Oh, and for the first time, here’s a little blooper reel for this episode. WARNING: There is swearing. I do that sometimes…

  1. A time traveling hunting cyborg? How inconvenient!

    The idea you proposed would be the ideal solution, but as you pointed out, there are far too few of them around to be convenient.

    I do understand that the U.K. has no lack of roundabouts and confusing intersections, and that the Magic Roundabout in Swindon is the most confusing of them all. Your friend should lure this time traveling cyborg into a chase which leads it into the roundabout. With its unfamiliarity with the confusing intersection, the cyborg will be contained until more drastic measures, such as heavy ordnance, can be brought to bear. Or perhaps the cyborg will simply run down in its futile efforts to escape the intersection and continue the chase.

    My solution to the dilemma of being stalked through England by a bulletproof murderous robot from the future, given that England no longer has steel mills readily accessible to the public:

    To answer this, I asked myself, “what’s the most dangerous thing in England?”

    The SAS?
    Football hooligans?
    North Manchester?
    James Bond?
    Steak and Kidney Pie?

    While each of these have salient features, I couldn’t help thinking that there just wasn’t the right kind of oomph for dealing with this particular threat.

    Finally, I settled on the only thing that could truly threaten a monster like this one. Captain Jack Harkness.

    She must lure the creature to Cardiff, because the Torchwood team rarely seems to react to emergencies happening anywhere else. She should arrive at night, preferably during a mild rainstorm or drizzle, and make sure that some innocent bystander becomes very messily deceased. This will bring the attention of the team, who will no doubt be able to deal with the interloper using a combination of brilliant detective work, pseudoscientific gobbledygook, and raw sexual chemistry.

    I hope this suggestion helps your listener out of her little pickle.
