ANSWERS: 1A, 2C, 3B, 4C, 5A, 6D, 7C, 8C, 9D, 10A
8-10 Correct – ULTIMATE WHOVIAN!
Take a bow, Mastermind. You’re clearly an Ultimate Whovian. You have the Tardis blueprints memorized, defeat Cybermen for sport and regularly save the universe before breakfast! You’re a fish fingers and custard eating, scarf-wearing, timey-wimey champion. Go brag to your friends, you’ve earned it!
7-5 Correct – SMART SILURIAN!
Great job, Mastermind. You’re a Smart Silurian! You know quite a bit about the Doctor, can spot a newbie companion from 1000 paces and can reassemble a broken sonic screwdriver in no time flat. You’re an asset to your species!
4-3 Correct – COOL CYBERMAN!
You’re a Cool Cyberman! You might not know as much about Doctor Who as other Masterminds, but you do know your way around the Tardis and think the Weeping Angels are the scariest villians to ever appear on an episode of Doctor Who. Your devil-may-care attitude keeps you cool in a crisis. Good thing, really, seeing as you’re mostly metal.
0-2 Correct – DON’T CARE DALEK!
You’re a Don’t Care Dalek! You, of course, know there’s a television show called Doctor Who, but you haven’t really watched it much lately. Maybe you’re not a big fan of that meddling, smarty pants Doctor guy. You’re content to watch one episode and then not see it again for a really long time. To which we say, “Are you nuts?”
