Mastermind (Radio 4)

Mastermind then reverted to Radio 4 with Peter Snow as the new questionmaster and in 1999, I auditioned over the phone for it and was accepted, although at the time, I wasn’t feeling too well. By the time I got to the recording a couple of months later, I was still unwell and even at one point thought about pulling out of the recording but decided that it would be unfair on the question setter for my specialised subject which was going to be the novels of P D James. I found out later that it was actually P D James herself who had set the questions so I was pleased I made the effort. However I only came third, thanks to two other competitors who had excellent specialised subjects but at least it gave me the chance to apply for membership of the Mastermind club which I had always wanted to do. Not long after the recording, I was rushed into hospital with multiple pulmonary embolisms which apparently I had been walking round with for several months so I was able to excuse my performance with the immortal words – “I told you I was ill!”
