Hi Gingerhendry,

81. Think of a long-running production, and something that can be "set".

91. A place in Ireland and another name for a prison officer.

92. A film where Alfred Hitchcock had a cameo role.

Hi Campanilla, thanks for coming to my rescue yet again, this is my first Rainbow Quiz, and I find it extremely hard!

No problem, it is very hard, and there are always a few clues that are worse than others, which is why most of us are stuck on the same ones, 19 and 94. If you think of it, if we're all stuck on the same ones, they must be really diabolical or we've talked ourselves into not bein able to do them. Roll on September when the next one comes out..

Number 94. I have gone for SHOWERCAPS? what do you think. They seem to be referred to by Shakespeare quite a bit and Caps as opposite poles??

Hi Ginger, sorry I didn't get back to you yesterday. I think showercaps is just as valid as any of the others we have come up with, I am just not convinced that any of them are right. Maybe it's just me. I have trouble with relating any of the answers up to date to the part of the clue with says, from two extremes. It could be that I'm trying to complicate things too much, but Rainbow always have complete logic in their answers as you will have seen from all the ones you have answered.

Hi Campanilla, with regard to question 94, I took the cap part to relate to the polar caps two extremes, north and south. J.It will be interesting to see what the answer actually is!!

Me again, I have been surfing around and Souwesters seems to be the favourite answer, 2 extremes, south and west - which are William Shakespeares initials.

Hi Ginger,

As JimB, my main thinking man, appears to have given up the ghost on No. 94, I'll tell you what I think the answer is and why. At no time does the clue specifically mention hats, caps or the like, it only says headgear. And you know, God knows I've said it enough times, that I have a problem with "extremes" regarding south/west etc. Well, I think the answer is "sideboards". Items of headgear? One on each side of the face? There actually is a Shakespeare sideboard which was carved by a Victorian woodcarver called Gerrard Robinson who was famous in that era for carving sideboards etc. He carved the most famous sideboard in the world, the Chevy Chase sideboard among others. The Shakespeare sideboard has a carving of Willy at the top, you'll find it on Google if you look for it. There actually is a Shakespeare sideboard in the Shipley Art Museum, Gerrard Robinson was fropm Newcastle-on-Tyne. Anyway, that's my answer and now I'll get back to the dreaded No. 19.
