Dom Joly: I hope there's a question on why north London is smug

I went to a pub quiz in north London last week. It was a last-minute thing – somebody I knew spotted on Twitter that I was in town at a loose end, and asked me to come along and join their team. I have a curious love-hate relationship with pub quizzes. I do really love them, but I also hate losing. You always lose in a pub quiz. However well you do there is always a little table in the corner that is rammed full of people with huge heads who have all taken time off studying for their PhDs in advanced boffindom to come and give you a good thrashing. They are normally into science fiction, and have a ludicrous name that is some clever play on words involving a solar system whose existence you weren't even aware of. I have to admit that winning a pub quiz is on my list of "things to do before I die", but I've never been too optimistic about my chances.
