    1: Angela Channing
    2: Prince Michael
    3: I got the wrong answer for this on my first try. When I saw Jay Z, I was trying to think which one of the Jasons it might be.
    4: Lane Ballou
    5: Cash Cassidy
    6: Fielding Carlyle
    7: Again, this didn't click until someone else said it so I won't include it.
    8: As above
    9: Well there's only one Alexis in soapland but to be super nerdy here, if that photo is taken (as it appears to be) in the Man Utd training ground at Carrington then it's Alexis Carrington
    10: This could be either Michael or Douglas but I'm going to chance Douglas Channing for this one.

    1. Miss Ellie (I believe she's also done some detective work)

    3. Frank Williams

    5. Cash Cassidy
    6. Krystle Carrington (Carlisle -> Belinda Carlisle -> Belinda -> Linda -> Linda Evans -> Krystle)
    7. Fallon Carrington II (she had red hair, and in one episode she had blonde hair)
    8. Paul Galveston (brother and sister -> Jill & Peter -> revenge -> Galveston Industries -> Paul Galveston)
    9. Mark Jennings (the soap sporter)
    10. Cecil Colby (Michael Douglas -> Cecil B. DeMille Award, other guy = just to confuse us)

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    I am not even a fan of the team in #9 (Chelsea all the way), but for some reason that is my favourite of the clues. What a fun fan quiz. @Carrie Fairchild , did you guess which Carrington it was, or did you recognize Alexis Sanchez?

    I have watched 5 out of 6 of the soaps the quiz is supposedly about but since I only recognize the people in 4 out of 10 photos this quiz makes no sense to me and all I can piece together is Prince Michael.

    I also recognize Angela Landsbury and Michael Doughlas. But not the people they are with. Angela Landsbury makes me think of murder she wrote which makes me think of clayton and miss ellies storyline in Dallas with the key. But I suppose Angela Channing is the right answer for it.

    Don't get what Baloo has to do with anything.

    In short this quiz is too hard for me! :(

    Karin, the woman with Angela Lansbury is musical actress Carol Channing, so I think the correct answer would be Angela Channing. The "Jungle Book" goes as I guessed like this: the character from the left was voiced in "The Lion King" by Nathan Lane ("Lane") and the character from the right is Baloo ("Balou"), hence the conclusion of "Lane Ballou", the Flamingo Road character played by Cristina Raines.

    Miss Piggy thinks she is being "pigscriminated" for not liking sports or local celebrities. And so do I...

    Happy new year to all (hic!):ny13:

    I said I wouldn't give the answers until next week but I have to applaud you two for working out the details of these clues, I wasn't sure anyone would get them.

    It's a picture of Jay-Z and R.Kelly. Jay = J. That picture is obviously representing JR Ewing.

    I knew Alexis Sanchez and the fact that he goes by his first name on his shirt rather than his surname like the majority of other players. The Carrington link came afterwards.

    It's obvious now but my brain obviously wasn't working when I made my first guess. Also, I didn't immediately recognise R. Kelly.

    Good work on getting that in depth Lane Ballou clue. I just saw Ballou and figured it was her. I never knew the ins and out of the Nathan Lane connection.

    Answers

    [​IMG] = [​IMG]
    1. The photograph is of Murder She Wrote actress Angela Lansbury (left) and Broadway and film actress Carol Channing (right). Taking one name from each gives the answer Angela Channing from Falcon Crest.

    [​IMG] = [​IMG]
    2. The photo shows "Prince" Jackson and his father Michael Jackson so the character it represents is Prince Michael from Dynasty.

    [​IMG] = [​IMG]
    3. On the left of the photo is Jay-Z and on the right is R. Kelly so the character to find is J.R. (Ewing) from Dallas.

    [​IMG] = [​IMG]
    4. This photo was composite of images from 2 Disney films. The character on the left is Timon from The Lion King who was voiced by film and Broadway star Nathan Lane and on the right is Baloo from The Jungle Book. Combining the names shown in bold gives Lane Ballou from Flamingo Road.

    [​IMG] = [​IMG]
    5. A photo of two wads of cash being held by singer David Cassidy indicates the character Cash Cassidy from The Colbys.

    [​IMG] = [​IMG]
    6. The photo is of the stadium Brunton Park which holds the football field where English League Two club Carlyle United FC play home matches (the club name was clearly visible in the picture). Combining the words in bold give the character name Field Carlisle from Flamingo Road.

    [​IMG] = [​IMG]
    7. The photo is of Susan Sarandon (left) and Ellen Burstyn (right) working together on the 2014 film The Calling. Combining the common abbreviation of the Susan with the first name of Ms Burstyn give the character Sue Ellen (Ewing) from Dallas.

    [​IMG] = [​IMG]
    8. A photo of Dr Who and Jumanji actress Karen Gillan with The Office and Pirates of The Caribbean actor MacKenzie Crook represents the character Karen MacKenzie from Knots Landing.

    [​IMG] = [​IMG]
    9. The photo is of footballer Alexis Sanchez at the Manchester United training ground (indicated by the logo shown near the right edge of the photo) which is located in Carrington so the character to identify is Alexis Carrington from Dynasty.
    [​IMG] = [​IMG]
    10. This picture is of Michael Douglas and Channing Tatum who worked together on the 2011 film Haywire. The character to find was Douglas Channing from Falcon Crest but Michael Channing is also an acceptable answer.

    Interesting concept for a quiz. Still it rides on that people know who the "famous" people in the photos are and since who is famous to someone is not famous to someone else this quiz was impossible for me to solve. Still kudos to everyone who got it right!

    Oh I thought it was Sanchez at Arsenal and couldn't get a surname out of it!

    Not being a fan of Man U! I wouldn't have a clue where they trained ;)

    I'm sorry you found the quiz "impossible". I expected with your love of films you would know more of the faces in the photos as the majority of them were actors, many of whom have appeared in well known Hollywood films. Maybe I just chose the wrong actors.
