Completely Unofficial River City Quiz Book by Paul English

Do you know your Ambers from your Scarletts? Would you know your way from the Montego Deli to the Tall Ship? Would you be able to tell the difference between Jo Rossi and Jo Rossi* if you met them both in the lane behind the Oyster Cafe? And does Shellsuit Bob ever actually wear a shellsuit? Test your knowledge of Scottish soap opera River City in this fun, unofficial quiz about the life and times of the residents of the fictional town of Shieldinch. This quirky quiz covers everything from the birth of the Madonna, the parts played by pop stars and the only stop on Glasgow's Clockwork Orange never to have seen a train. For casual fans and devotees, this fun quiz will test your knowledge of Scotland's best (only) TV soap (*correct - they were played by two different actresses).

About the Author

Paul English is an entertainment journalist with the Daily Record, whose day job demands that he watches River City with a giant magnifying glass, while backing up endless episodes of Nurse Jackie and Boardwalk Empire on his Sky Plus to watch later. He has been the Daily Record's TV Critic for six years, writing a weekly column and interviewing the great and the good of Shieldinch on a regular basis. Paul also presented the six part Radio Scotland series Comedy Heroes, where he interviewed Scottish TV legends like Ronnie Corbett and Armandi Iannucci. He is the weekly TV reviewer on STV's magazine show The Hour, has tousled with the cast of Taggart on Five Live and is a regular on BBC Scotland's MacAulay and Co. He lives in Glasgow.
