Answer: Stephen Marcus. Banjo in Hogfather and Broadman in Colour of Magic

Possible bonus: Marnix van den Broeke who played Death in Hogfather and Colour of Magic AND mr. Pump in Going Postal (I believe he's the only one who has a role in all three films)


Nigel Planer is also an option. Sideney in Hogfather and the Arch-Astronomer in Colour of Magic

Edit: I missed some moreEmbarrassed
Nicholas Tennant Nobby in Hogfather, Librarian (in human form) in Colour of Magic

Thanks for checking that out Sjoerd - I'm going to be mostly finishing off the collation of these today and tomorrow, but don't stop posting new or updates to questions as we can be fairly flexible with what goes into the mix up until the Saturday as I'll have all the software to make any changes to the slides

We'll probably need to make a start on discussing the scoring as of now (in the 'We can do it' thread) but we'll need to be talking to Chris (and possibly Jason and Pat) on that side of things which may have to wait until Birmingham - lots to do on that Friday pm freak out

Got some more questions, might be a bit too easy though

The Disc rests on the back of four elephants, who on turn stand on Great A'Tuin. But what are the names of the Elephants?
Berilia
Tubul
Great T'Phon
Jerakeen

Who was the greatest thief of Ankh-Morpork, and where was his HQ?
Ymor, HQ in the leaning tower at the junction of Rime Street and Frost Alley.

Trymon becomes chancellor after Galder Weatherwax (did he really become Chancellor? Or only head of the order?) But what was Trymon's first name?
Ymper
Klaxon: No first name

Thanks Sjoerd - I'll put them on the master files I'm bringing with me on the laptop and we can sort them out tomorrow or Saturday if I can't actually get them on the Flash files. 

There's still some questions I haven't used so far which I'm wanting other people to look at so we have a nice mix of easyish and really obscure topics that can lead to expansion - will take you through how I've grouped them and then you can do what you like with Chris on how to present and score them as I'm going to be pretty busy with Cripple Mr. Onion on Friday afternoon.
