Ironically, the Pounds to Pocket ads have now become more annoying than the ads that their smug executive is "rejecting".

The Sword of Gryffindor is technically the same thing as basilisk venom; it's only because it was impregnated with the venom that it was able to destroy horcruxes. In and of itself, it can't do that.

Why would it appear on Virgin Media customers' screens? Surely Sky provide Virgin with a dedicated feed; they wouldn't just give them a Sky box and tell them to hook it up in their playout centre!
