    I got 5

    Questions: 2, 3, 6, 14, & 18 ( on 18 I knew thee correct number of actors who have played the doctor on tv but I am glad the question wasn’t to name all the actors )

    I got 11/20 – and I managed to get 13 and 20 right!
    …I pick up a lot of useless trivia. The ones I got wrong were about comic book history, which just goes to show that I’ve got a lot of reading to do.

    HLG- Don’t worry, I’m sure you won’t get the worst score

    Kaldath- Please refrain from giving away answers. Could you edit your post to remove the answer you’ve accidentally put. I don’t want anyone seeing them before having a go themselves.

    Trekkie- I would have guessed a fellow Brit would get 20 right, but HOW did you get 13 right. I knew there were 5 but I had to look up the fifth for the question.

    I absorb a lot of useless trivia from the internet Laugh. And I also met one of them when he came to my old town to give a talk on all the film work he’d done.

    Do you live in the West Country by any chance? In the Bristol area?

    Nope. No, I think he was doing a tour of the country giving these talks. I’m just surprised he came to my small town in the middle of nowhere in Wales!

    Yep, 3 of 20…

    I’m sending a POF on one of the questions.

    I got 8 (2,3,7,8,9,14,18,20). I also knew 6 and 12, but they slipped my mind when answering and I only realized I knew them in hindsight.
    Though technically 13 is wrong. Bob Andersen also played Vader for some of the fight scenes, including when Luke’s hand got chopped off. While he was a stunt double, I believe the fact he was the man behind the light saber deserves notice.

    Well done for getting Q20.
    In regard to the spoiler, I was aware of that, but I was going by those credited as a member of the cast, which he technically wasn’t.

    Fair enough, and Hitchhiker’s is an awesome book and radio series.

    I prefer the BBC TV series. TV from that era, especially on the BBC, was brilliant.
    The less said about the movie the better.
