A phantom’s author, a city of vice and the breaking of a wand – take the Thursday quiz

A phantom’s author, a city of vice and the breaking of a wand – take the Thursday quiz

Fifteen questions on general knowledge and topical trivia plus a few jokes every Thursday – how will you fare?

A fan holds a signed Phantom mask during the re-opening night of Phantom of the Opera in New York. but who wrote the original story?

The Thursday quiz is here as a tiny glimmer of normality in a mixed-up world. You will laugh at the jokes. You will curse as you second-guess yourself about at least one of the questions, and then get it wrong. And you will recoil from the hideous AI art waiting for you at the conclusion. It is just for fun and there are no prizes, but let us know how you got on. And don’t forget, you can score bonus points for spotting hidden references to Doctor Who or making the quiz master laugh with your comments.

The Thursday quiz, No 74

If you do think there has been an egregious error in one of the questions or answers, please feel free to email martin.belam@theguardian.com, but remember the quiz master’s word is final, and you don’t want him to send Erik round now that he is unemployed.
