This Doctor Who quiz covers the series overall. It includes trivia about the classic era of Doctor Who as well as its modern reintroduction. Are you a devoted fan who knows all the exciting details of the show that spans over half a century! You are in for a tough ride down the memory line!
For now, let’s take a short break, a minute of fun to check some interesting facts about the series and its actors.
Did you know that, initially, Doctor WHo was meant to be a kid’s show? Today, it is still not a gory fantasy or a 16+ horror series, but the show has shifted towards older audiences, starting from teens and onwards.
The initial thought was to introduce Doctor Who to younger audiences and, thus, teach them about various aspects of life and educate them.
First Doctor’s Regeneration
The concept of regeneration was not the initial plan for the mythology of the Doctor (which is covered by this Doctor Who trivia test). However, the initial actor, William Hartnell, was having health-related issues. Thus, the crew came up with the idea of regeneration to make sure that the show goes on without Hartnell well.
As his deteriorating health became an obstacle for filming, it was time to plant the idea into action.
The TARDIS is “a chameleon”
We all know that the TARDIS looks like a police box. Always! However, that is not by design. TARDIS shouldn’t always look like a police box. By default, it uses a cloaking device to blend in with the environments it lands in. However, the Doctor’s TARDIS has a malfunction that disrupts the process. Thus, whenever and wherever he travels, it looks the same.
Daleks could be way scarier.
Initially, Ridley Scott was meant to create Daleks’ design (the guy responsible for Alien!). Unfortunately, Scott left the network before he could work on these aliens. And we’ll never know what fascinating imagery he would create for the creatures. Not to neglect the accomplishments of the Doctor Who crew of old days, but Daleks are no scarier than R2-D2.
Say, are any of these facts new to you? Personally, I didn’t know any of them!
