    Bearing in mind that if you're hoping to do well on Mastermind, you'll need several subjects for each round, I'd go for the novels of James Joyce (or Samuel Beckett); the life of King Edward VI; the works and life of Bela Bartok; South Park. It would be boring and possibly against the rules to have a literary subject every time.
    Haha, I think they'd spot it if you chose your PhD

    Is that against the rules? Okay, the works of Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite, then.

    I read that somewhere you can't apply with a subject linked to your occupation; or I might have been told this by a friend who was on the programme, can't remember. But the application form asks for your career + educational info, and I reckon they'd be a bit suspcicious You also have to provide a bibliography for each topic: presumably their setters just read this and derive questions from it, which makes it seem rather less challengning if you actually know the books.

    I would be pwn'd on general knowledge, I admit. I am a hedgehog, not a fox.

    And Pseudo-D to the A? Are you just aiming to alienate the audience as much as possible?!

    Mine would probably be...

    Tony Award for Best Musical winners
    Harry Potter *hangs head*
    or... Heroes maybe.
    Or CSI: New York

    My Nan went on Mastermind once (I think she got to the quarter finals) and her specialist subject was the History of the Flute. She said there was also a woman whose subject was something to do with teapots. Lol.
