I'm aware there are already Doctor who actor games on here, but I thought it would be good to have a clickable version of it :) Makes it a bit easier perhaps, and it's a different way of play! I'm not in any way intending to ignore Derek's Who Was Doctor Who quiz (which is well worth a go by the way!)

Too bad you can't have Peter Cushing as a bonus answer somehow.

Please include Richard Hurdnall. He did play the First Doctor in a canonical role when the late William Hartnell couldn't appear in the 1983 anniversary special 'The Five Doctors'.

Yeah it's true Hurdnall was in a canonical episode, and he did an amazing job (one of my favourite episodes!) but he's not THE first Doctor - that will always be William Hartnell :) I would normally include people like Hurdnall (and indeed Cushing!) as a bonus answer, but as clickable quizzes dont allow that I had to leave him out. Don't worry though, I'm not trying to ignore him :)

Atkinson has played the doctor in a special..
May 24th, 2012 at 17:30 GMT
@knight_of_ni Yes, there are several actors amongst the wrong answers who have played the Doctor in non-canonical settings.

Two more Doctors and we will have, ironically, a Baker's dozen.

I knew I would Master this quiz!! (sorry!)

Oh my gosh my first published quiz! :D Thankyou Sporcle Gods!

Richard E. Grant was technically canonical for two years or so - according to the BBC, he was the official 9th Doctor in Scream of the Shalka.
May 25th, 2012 at 00:36 GMT
And if this quiz had been made during those two years, he would have been a great answer!

I only got 10/11 as I'll be dead in the cold, cold ground before I recognize Missouri or Paul McGann
May 25th, 2012 at 05:34 GMT
@blues95: Nice Simpson's reference, but in all seriousness, I didn't think Paul McGann made a bad doctor, only that the movie was lousy. Seriously, they make a movie about a being who can travel anywhere in time and space, and the entire movie is set in 1999 San Francisco?

Only took me 11 seconds... I think I might have a small obsession... Wonderful quiz!

I'm showing my age, but Tom Baker will always be the Doctor to me. But I must say that I really liked David Tennant.
May 26th, 2012 at 02:16 GMT
Loved the quiz! A great idea to make a clickable game of the doctors. Although, as stated above, I am not putting down the classic version =)

@Azarel Well, most episodes take place in only one place and the Doctor really enjoys being on Earth--and at least it wasn't England (not anything wrong with that, but it was a nice change of pace).

@Quiz_Maker, well, these days it's mostly Wales disguised as...just about anywhere in the universe really!
