In case there's any doubt over the meaning of "-" in the remaining answer, it's to be read as "4 to 6 or 6 to 8".

Good quiz, thanks for that.

Oh, is that what happens? OK, will give it some thought. May not be straight away though, so don't let me stop anyone else having a go in the meantime if they wish.

Actually there are no hard-and-fast rules about who sets the next quiz, but since you got the final question and hadn't set one before, I thought you might like to have a go. All offers welcome.

Absolutely no idea, so I'll start with a wild stab in the dark:

2. Who wrote The Darling Buds of May?

with a possible theme of "politicians in serious trouble" :-)

Nope, not that. But you're on the right track – it is to do with one of the books he wrote.

OK, let's try a theme of countries:

2. Who wrote Fair Stood the Wind for France?
3. Which musical features the song The Rain in Spain?

Both correct! And yes, you're on the right track with "countries" (loosely defined).

5. What comic-book character has been portrayed by Tom Holland in several films?

Nope, not that.

NB: I have called the connection "countries" (loosely defined) because I can't think of any other suitable term to bracket all nine keywords. One of them is in fact not a country at all, however defined – and if you adopt Richard Osman's Pointless definition of a country as "a sovereign state that is a member of the UN in its own right" then two of them are not countries!
