For example, when I filmed the xmas specials earlier this month, it was more than 6 years since I played on apterous (which I find nuts!!!)

Definitely tuning in for this

Any non-finalist who averaged over 90 in their games? (excluding those who couldn't make the finals)

Straight in there with the Mulvey. Nice.

Also Zarte Mark I presumably.

Was thinking mainly about David O'Donnell from this series who won 5 games. Looks very unlikely that he'll be a finalist which is pretty unfortunate given that his average over his games is over 100.

I think the finals for this series ought to have been extended to 16 given how long the series ended up being. Corinna Attwood-gate in my view suggests the series should have been shortened anyway (in a normal time).

There's been lots of "haven't made its" whose per game average has been higher than those with more wins - it's the luck of the draw.

Suck it up, and reapply in 10 years. ;)

Abdirizak Hirsi and Mark Hartnett smashed it in series 69 too.
