DOOMWATCH CLIP "THE DEVIL'S SWEETS" ON TELLY ADDICTS

The classic British TV quiz show Telly Addicts from 10th October 1987 (the third series) features the opposing teams Carlisle and Baxter. Amongst the clips, DOOMWATCH is featured. The clip from ‘’The Devils Sweets” is the scene where Pat is being tested in the Doomwatch lab  - there is a laugh from the studio audience at Brad’s line  about “some pigeons” having the same problem as she’s got!

The contestants are asked the name of the series (no one gets this – although one contestant feigns recognition when the answer is given) ; who played Toby Wren (correctly guessed) and then how Toby died (they veer between radiation poisoning and a virus  - selecting death by virus instead!)
