Maybe I'm wrong and everyone knows their Harry Potter trivia a lot better than I do, but I think this week's theme caters to too small of a niche audience and it might just be a back and forth between yesterday's and today's CCC setters.
I agree I don't know anything about Harry Potter - If we are going to continue with themes we need to keep them as broad as possible e.g. Famous Horror Films, Famous westerns - etc... etc.. with the emphasis being on famous and not on the same film all week

Even if I had read the books (which I haven't) I still doubt I would remember (m)any of the spells...
If you want to expand on the theme you could broaden it to "general Harry Potter", or even just "wizardry and other magic stuffs". Up to you though, you are the setter and you can do aaaaanything you like.
I've read all the books. I was still a kid when they came out. I've seen the movies 2-3 times each. The Mrs is also a fan. We've seen/read the spinoffs. Point is, I thought I qualified as a fan, but I haven't a hope of solving these.
I agree, the category should be more broad. I would say Harry Potter is big enough in itself and well enough recognised in pop culture to count as a theme, even if not every one has read it.
