Geek Quiz ♯18: Doctor Who

Ok  everyone, I hope you have your Space- Time Visualisers tuned and the polarity of the neutron flow has been properly reversed, because this week we are going to be tackling my favourite TV show, Doctor Who. Of course all the answers are going to be wobbly-wobbly timer-whimey so try to keep up.

Oh and for the purposes of this quiz, the word serial is used to describe any episodes that form an overarching storyline (e.g. Genesis of the Daleks is made up of 6 episodes all part of the same story) and this also will apply to multi-episode story lines from the revived series as well (e.g. The last 3 episodes of season 4 would all  be part of the same serial, despite having their own episode titles and numbers). Sorry if this is confusing, but otherwise the maths for some of the answers gets even more confusing.

As per usual, it’s 10 questions with a total of 20 points to get. The answers will be below a jump from the post whilst on the main blog page, so if you don’t want to be spoiled, take a look at the questions on the blog first. And obviously Don’t Post Answers In The Comments.
