And here we are: the second part of our lockdown trilogy of quizzes.
How did you do with part one? Too easy? Too obscure? Or just too easy to argue the point – isn’t that what fandom is for? Here are some more to chew the fat over. Just as long as it’s not bat fat. Too soon? Sorry.
#1. In which story do we find the dialogue, “The Age of Man is over. The Age of the Virus has begun”?
#2. What year did the Daleks launch their pre-invasion plague on the Earth? ? Remember it's *pre*-invasion.
#3. Which race made the Doctor an honorary noble for helping them find a cure for plague?
#4. Which race caused the Plague in 1665?
#5. Which companion accidentally spreads a plague on her first encounter with an alien race?
#6. In Doctor Who and the Silurians, which of these guest stars does NOT die (spectacularly) of the plague?
#7. Which of these has not been described as plague in Doctor Who?
Digested microplastic was the carrier for the virus called Praxeus, but no one actually describes plastic as a plague. The Morpheus ‘condensed’ sleep virus, described as ‘germs’ ‘spores’ and ‘infection,’ turned out to be a electronic signal embedded in the broadcast. Grief was a plague in Smile, and physical injury was a plague in The Empty Child/ The Doctor Dances.
#8. Which of these stories does NOT feature androids, and plague, and the Doctor locked up?
#9. In which of these stories does a ‘plague’ actually turn out to be poison?
#10. In which Series 2 episode do we hear that the Bad Wolf Virus has wiped out all Torchwood files on the Doctor and Rose?
#11. In The Vampires of Venice, the city is in quarantine ostensibly because of the plague. Why is the Doctor suspicious?
It was Rory who smelt something fishy.
#12. What is the name of the plague that affects two-hearted races in The Girl Who Waited?
#13. What is NOT unusual about the tech virus in Orphan 55?
Although computer virus creators are usually written as male, so you might say this one is unusual too.
