    No it's Khan or Beam (but both inspired guesses), this next clue should make it a little easier...


    1. This character doesn't want Bond to slip up.

    2. This character has a similarity to a very large mammal.

    3. This character's heritage may be of a maritime background.

    I see where your coming from, but it's still not M. :)

    Ah ha, I think I've only gone and got it

    Sharkey? ;-)

    No sorry @WillyGalore it's not Sharkey, though I can see your rather non PC reasoning. :)

    I wasn't being non-PC :))

    Similarity to a mammal i.e shark (only after realising that whales and not sharks are mammals) D'oh.
    Maritime heritage - he is a fisherman

    Clearly I'm way off the mark so I'll let some others have a guess

    Tiger Tanaka?

    Great guess @pachazo but it's not Tiger. I honestly thought someone would get this one by now, I'm willing to bet people will kick themselves when they get the answer.


    1. This character doesn't want Bond to slip up.

    2. This character has a similarity to a very large mammal.

    3. This character's heritage maybe of a maritime background.

    4. It's not unknown for this character to be found in some girls bed.

    Bond himself? I guess Bond wouldn't want Bond to slip up haha

    But then the mammal thing makes zero sense.

    Can only spare a few minutes, but it would appear to be Irma Bunt from On Her Majestys Secret Service

    #1 not sure about that one

    #2 one of the piz gloria girls remarked she had ears like an elephant

    #3 The name Bunt refers to the parts of a sail or a nautical term, Lazenby said

    #4 She was in place of one of the piz gloria girls at the institute and surprised Lazenby

    I don't understand clue #1 but quietly confident - may be to do with the Ice ?

    Ah ha yes I think you could be right. It's a better guess than mine

    I think clue 1. could refer to when Bond is playing Curling

    Well done @Baltimore_007 it was indeed Irma Bunt for the very reasons you state, and the first clue which refers to her warning to Bond (disguised as Sir Hilary Bray) when arriving at Piz Gloria that they would be stepping on " Not ground, ice!", so your reasoning of ice being part of the answer was entirely correct.

    Over to you.

    People won't be able to contain their excitement

    Thanks @Saunders and just allow me sufficient time to get put something together. Should be a good round coming up. Watch this space
  • Posts: 6,396
    That was a really excellent set of clues @saunders fiendishly clever :-)
  • Posts: 5,634
    Let's get this underway, word of warning to any new participants - this may be ongoing for some considerable time. Then again, it could be over in no time at all, you never can tell what will happen

    Let's begin


    #1 Patience is not one of my best virtues

    #2 I could be a leading contender for the World hide and seek champion

    #3 I could be associated with a Sandra Bullock movie

    #4 I could of been a decent soccer player

    #5 One of my favorite musical groups could be Erasure


    more clues, as and when necessary
  • And so it begins...

    Blofeld?

    Shit. I think Bean was in something with Bullock so you might have just gotten it. Why do I never think of the obvious ones?
  • Posts: 6,396
    Sean Bean is a lifelong fan of Sheffield United and did a film once where he played a footballer. That's what leads me to think Trevelyan. Although I could be miles off!
  • Good to have you back at the helm Baltimore! I do so love your fiendish puzzles.

    My first guess for this round is going to be Francisco the Fearless aka The human cannonball from Octopussy
  • Posts: 6,396
    That's an inspired guess @rogertheclown. Erasure released an album called "The Circus". and certainly clues 1 & 2 match up. It'll be interesting to see where clues 3 & 4 fit in

    Unbelievably that is the right answer

    #1 Francisco got irritated at having to wait - "Now ?!"

    #2 you won't find many people looking inside a cannon in a big top

    #3 Bullock was in 'The Net'

    #4 Francisco ended up in the net, good soccer skills there

    #5 Erasure released a 1987 song called 'The Circus'

    well done @Rogertheclown but got to admit, got a bit sloppy with that one, should of gone with a more obscure character, but that will have to wait until next time. The stage is yours..

  • Thanks Baltimore! The Erasure clue pointed towards the circus and then the other clues kicked into place. You'll get your chance at redemption soon I'm sure. I don't fancy a marathon round, so I'm not going too obscure. Here goes in any case:

    1/ Professionalism is the name of my game

    2/ I have a bit of a hearing problem

    3/ You won't find me collecting stamps, birdwatching or doing crochet

    Over to you guys. I'll check back when I can and see how we're going. This shouldn't last long :)

    I'll have the first guess.

    Miss Taro?
  • Posts: 5,634
    It could be Lupe Lamora. Then again, it could be anything

    I'll go with Ms Soto and hope for the best
