Tuesday 21st June 2016 (Series 74, 4th Quarter-Final)

Post by James Robinson » Fri Feb 24, 2017 12:39 pm

So, you might've noticed that there has been a shortage of recaps in recent times. Well, ever the stickler for efficiency, I have held onto recording of these missing episodes waiting for the time to put up a recap.

I will admit that these will be mainly shells, but I say it's better to have something, rather than nothing.

So, we start with the last quarter-final of Series 74 from 8 months ago.... :P

Enjoy. ;) :) :D
