It’s the second edition of the Doctor Who Companion‘s exclusive “Who Knows” quiz, and we’re focussing on number twos. Oh, we’re certainly not above toilet humour here at the DWC; fortunately, not everything in today’s quiz revels in crude gags – largely because Doctor Who rarely centers around the loos. So we’ve shoved in some twos that aren’t related to waste. I know, we’re a big disappointment.
(The inclusion of The Beast Below as the featured image is purely because it’s the Eleventh Doctor’s second story, and yes, they are covered in sick – it’s by no means a comment on the quality of the story. In fact, I love The Beast Below, as DWC regular will likely attest.)
If you’re not too embarrassed, we’d appreciate you sharing your results on social media. And don’t forget to let us know how you do in the comments section below!
Better luck next time. You needed 70% to pass this quiz – but look on the bright side: this means you’ll have to watch more Doctor Who!
