QUIZ: Lord Byron Lived Where?

"An armful? That's very nearly an armful!"
- Tony Hancock, "The Piss Donor"


Born on this date in 1924, Tony Hancock was one of TV and radio's most loveable, miserable old shits and his popularity continues so much that even today, nearly fifty years after his death, much of the running jokes and details from "Hancock's Half Hour" and its 25 minute TV sequel are still ingrained in British culture today. And probably no more so than that of his most well known home address - 23 Railway Cuttings, East Cheam.

Here's a few more fictional addresses that may have stuck in your brain. Which figures from TV, film and literature can be found at the following locations?

1. Nelson Mandela House, Peckham
