    Default Fiendish Doctor Who questions.

    I was on Facebook on Sunday and took a Doctor Who quiz.

    Talk about failing standards in education. I managed 100%, and I'm really more a Star Trek fan for trivia.

    Well I set about creating the most fiendish Doctor Who trivia quiz imaginable, set it up, and sat back ready to laugh.

    Si Hart had a go, and even he only managed 90%. But lo and behold several people have managed 100%, and their quiz times are such they couldnt have looked up the answers on Wikipedia.

    So what would your most fiendish Doctor Who trivia question be?

    So where is this quiz? I've looked but can't find it - then again a lot of things like that on Facebook are fiendishly hidden away
    Your people? Your people??? They are MY people now!

    Reprinting all the Watcher's questions from DWM would be fiendish indeed! There were some right buggers in that lot.
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    They were very easy if you were on the same quiz team as Nick Pegg

    Was that because Gary Russell would tell him all the answers?

    It's the extraordinarily difficult to remember www.facebook.com.

    To those on Facebook it should be found on ...

    Otherwise - look up my profile as "Michael Talks".

    Si Hart might have only managed 90%, but Rob McCow managed 100%, although as the time it took him to answer was "3 days 3 hours", I think he did a spot of cheating.

    If he takes that long I don't think you'd want him on your team at a Doctor Who quiz night.

    Perhaps he confused "phone a friend" with "drive over to a friend's house, stay for a couple of days, then cruise back at a leisurely pace".

    Oh my dear Doctor, the real explanation is far more simple. The first time I tried it the quiz crashed. 3 days later, my strength was renewed by the numismaton gas and I tried again, scoring 100% and dwarfing Si's score of 90%! Hahahahahah.

    I started getting a "virtual memory low error" and somehow managed to skip an entire question!

    I'm not on Facebook, but I bet I could manage at least 90%.

    I'd get 42% if I studied.

    I'm truely disturbed how easy some people have found it.

    I should retract my "difficult" claim as fraudulent.

    I managed 100% in 1m48s, do I win a prize?

    I'm thinking I need to spend this week trying to think up even more fiendish questions. I put some options in there I thought might divert people, like similarly sounding characters, or names used in the story in question. Very few people have been sidetracked.

    I'm annoyed no-one has yet chosen that there was a mad scientist called Doreen Soreen though.

    I only got 90%...screwed up with the Beryl Reid question though (I knew the right answer...haven't a clue why I got it wrong )

    btw I see that someone must have found it hard, with a score of 30%...

    I'm selling it as "so simple even Ali can do it" ...
