Would be willing to make a team up, but I don't think that I'd be much use at it - I'm sure that there will be more than enough for a team from the rest of you that would be better than me. Might also be difficult to get the time from work.
Quick update on this: me, Nick and Gareth got our heads together and are heading down for an audition on Saturday. We've had a couple of skype sessions with the online game, and the chances are we might not be completely useless!
Another quick update, I thought we did quite well with the audition, and the production people seemed to take a shine to us (much more so than, say, the people I met at the Brightest Briton audition). We briefly mentioned the UKPA, and they remembered Neil from when he was on the show. As I've mentioned elsewhere I also got the chance to distribute a paper copy of some of the Sudoku I've been working on recently - indeed they seemed quite impressed - so I suppose if nothing else they were aware of the sorts of things we do. Not sure when we hear back from them, but I think we've got at leats some grounds for optimism for getting a UKPA t-shirt on telly again soon
