The Saturday Quiz answers

1. David Ogilvy

It’s a family affair: Claire Skinner and Samantha Bond in ‘Outnumbered’

Outnumbered last episode, review: Strained relations provide final laughs

Right, that's it then for Outnumbered. Ta-ra to lines like "Dad, can I use the computer to do my cyber-bullying homework?"; au revoir to Samantha Bond's perfectly berserk turn as Auntie Angela, a women with postgraduate levels of passive-aggression; farewell to Hugh Dennis pretending not to be able to use a phone.

First Dates, TV review: Sad, funny and even moving - this show is brilliant

First Dates – a kind of live-action version of the Guardian's Blind Date column – plonks couples in a restaurant and lets us watch the damage. It's brilliant. But also sad, funny, even moving. It's good TV.

Outnumbered, TV review: Brockman family will be missed

As Outnumbered creaks towards it finale next week, it's clear the show is long past its early peak and though some of its gags are written on fumes (Pete can't work out predictive texting; an IT man suggests turning a computer on and off again) it still has enough moments to raise a smile.
