Thank you @Cleoriff 

I couldn`t be that mean and make everyone name the episodes of Fawlty Towers 😂

After all, this is a milestone in the history of WRQ and I want to thank everyone who has ever taken part in a WRQ quiz and would like as many as possible to join in and enjoy the quiz and to celebrate and have fun.

In fact, that was what I hoped this special edition of the White Room Quiz would be like - with some easier questions; some which needed thinking about; and maybe the odd one which might have to guessed...

and don`t forget - a trophy trophy for getting the 1500th WRQ question [Q4 in this quiz] correct.

On it's way @Mi-Amigo 

The gif has nothing to do with anything but after Lewis Hamilton's stunning win yesterday (against all the odds) I thought I'd post it 😂
