Enjoying latest quiz. But am I the only one struggling with no. 30 re. Edgar Allan Poe? Have googled etc. for ages, but am obviously missing the target. Any hints will be appreciated. I can in return drop clues/nudges for all others bar 31??!

@Ramires7,
I don't believe you need a clue for Q30. But I could do with a clue for 10 and of course 31

@djmple,
Re. Q10.On previous postings I have seen answer given as teasedan(anagram).However this is a real village and on GFQ query line it is stated that the required answer is a fictional location.

@Opsimath,
Unless of course I'm misunderstanding it and that Sherlock Holmes lived in that location fictionally rather than the location being fictional as well.

@Opsimath,
The query line seems to be indicating a fictitious place. There's a lot of speculation but I can't see anything definite {even reading stories in 'His last Bow'} but presumably 'teasedan' is ruled out, likewise 'wrothulf'?
The penny has still not dropped re 30, Edgar...Poe?

@Opsimath,
Have I misread the question? One episode of a well known British Comedy, throughout the 90's, contains an episode the title of a tale by Edgar A Poe? If so, the penny's dropped.

@Ramires7,
There are a couple of episodes with the same title as works of Edgar Alan Poe.

@Opsimath,
On investigation "wrothful" would appear to be the answer.Do you agree Ramires?

@Opsimath,
Further research - I don't think it exists! Staring me in the face for a few days, I don't believe it!

@Ramires7,
I've got my doubts on Question 30, the comedy with Edgar Allen Poe links. Went for The League of Gentlemen but very very tenuous links.

@sophocles,
It's not League of Gentlemen Sophocles. I repeat my previous clue "I do not believe " you haven't solved it!
