LAST WEEK'S TEASER QUESTION
We asked who, on their death-beds, appealed to Bankhead, to Hardy, and to Dora?
This refers to the 'famous last words' (according to legend) of three 19th-century figures.
The notoriously unpopular Foreign Secretary Lord Castlereagh's dying words are supposed to have been 'Bankhead, let me fall into your arms, it is all over'.
Lord (Horatio) Nelson may very well have said 'Kiss me, Hardy' - attempts to explain the phrase as 'Kismet, Hardy!' seem rather squeamish and desperate to modern ears.
William Wordsworth's dying words - spoken to his sister Dorothy - were reportedly 'God bless you, is that you, Dora?'
