How much do you know about the Sixth Doctor?


https://cl.s6.exct.net/?qs=68af13939bc965445a167facbebc4ca2094a0c578012778219e233211cfd2e51f2a607614486690240c2887ee8625e97ab79b563d3030466

Got 12/13.

“Handled with tact and finesse!
You scored 12 out of 13
Congratulations. With a victory like that, you should think highly of yourself. But maybe not as much as the Sixth Doctor thinks of himself…”

The one question I got wrong was about Attack of the Cybermen.

Doctor Who = Star Trek: Prodigy

Started the Star Trek animated series Prodigy and one of the main characters is called Zero but is initially identified in the first episode Lost and Found as Fugitive Zero.
As this is the first episode of Prodigy, Fugitive Zero feels kind of similar in name to Prisoner Zero from Matt Smith’s own first (full) episode as the Eleventh Doctor in The Eleventh Hour.

Iris Wildthyme: Whatever Happened to Iris Wildthyme?

Whatever Happened to Iris Wildthyme? is the opener of the fourth season of Iris Wildthyme from Big Finish.
Written by Cavan Scott & Mark Wright.
The finale of the previous season Midwinter Murders ended on a cliffhanger.
However this cliffhanger isn’t addressed here, well not right away.
This has Iris and Panda in separate places apparently living their dream lives and dream is the key word in all this.
It soon becomes clear that for each of them things are what they appeared to be including Panda keep having visions of Iris.
Quite eerie the premise with this in starting out the fourth season and the ultimate revelation in all this.

Doctor Who: Classic Doctors, New Monsters Volume Two: Night of the Vashta Nerada

Night of the Vashta Nerada is the first episode of Classic Doctors, New Monsters Volume Two from Big Finish.
Written by John Dorney.
This has the Fourth Doctor facing off against the Vashta Nerada.
This is set at Funworld named as such this planet is that of a funfair and has been set to be the happiest planet in the galaxy.
However construction has been disrupted by reports of a predator and employees going missing.
An investigation on this has been set by owner Georgia Donnelly and soon this team is joined by the Doctor.
Ultimately the predator is revealed to be the Vashta Nerada.
A very suspenseful story as the Vashta Nerada picks off its victims one by one.
Pretty good pace with its premise and all leading to its finale that felt very downhearted. This perhaps the story’s exact intent due to the nature of the menace that is the Vashta Nerada and quite impressed how they worked on Big Finish.

Doctor Who 4.38 The Evil of the Daleks Episode 2 (animated)

Animation of the only surviving episode of the story.
Having seen the original episode prior to seeing the animated remake I therefore had knew what to expect with the visuals with the animation.
Intriguing that this starts with Kennedy being exterminated by a Dalek at the start.
The Doctor and Jamie goes into the shop half an hour early.
The Doctor notices that the antiques on sale in the shop are neither fakes nor reproductions. They are the genuine article.
They soon find the dead Kennedy and not long after that Jamie unwittingly set off a trap for him and the Doctor, one that was set up by Waterfield.
The trap is that of a gas that was released knocking the Doctor and Jamie unconscious.
With the Doctor and Jamie now unconscious, Waterfield takes them back to 1866.
The Doctor and Jamie are now in a house.
The Doctor is the first to get up with Jamie still affected by the gas.
He then finally meets Waterfield and the house owner Theodore Maxtible.
As Waterfield and Maxtible explains to the Doctor what is going on, we are introduced to Waterfield’s daughter Victoria with Debbie Watling making her debut as her.
Victoria is held prisoner by the Daleks.
A Dalek came to look in on her and placed her on a measuring machine and it is dissatisfied that Victoria has not gained weight.
The Dalek then instructs Victoria to eat the food that they are sending her and leaves.
From his conversations with Waterfield and Maxtible, the Doctor learns of the Daleks being behind all this.
A Dalek then meets the Doctor and informs him that they need Jamie for their experiments much to the Doctor’s horror.
Jamie finally gets up but not long after that a man sneaks up to him and knocks him unconscious and abducts him.
Jamie’s absence is soon noticed by the Doctor and Waterfield.
The Doctor is concerned with his friend going missing but for Waterfield he is horrified by this development as he was forced in doing the Daleks’ bidding due to them holding VIctoria prisoner.
They state with what would happen if Jamie isn’t found in time and that is the Daleks will kill everyone on sight,
The Doctor says that their greatest pleasure would be in killing him!
Intriguing cliffhanger with the Daleks about to start their tests and any delay will result in death.
I remember the feeling on seeing the original episode and leaving it hanging given that there are no more episodes of this story around.
Notwithstanding the audio soundtracks that got released glad these animation gets to present this story in full.
