Doctor Who Quiz: How Well Do You Know The Tenth Doctor?

The Tenth Doctor and Rose
"Ten questions on Doctor number ten - oh yes!"
Perhaps, "How much do you remember about David Tennant's Tenth Doctor?" could have been a more appropriate title for that quiz as we're now pretty close to see the Twelfth Doctor in action, but it's still rather cool as a little trip down the Whovian memory lane... Oh, and, as a bonus, we learn (Unless you already knew it, obviously) the name David Tennant was born with.

Who Am I? Sherlock Holmes, Khan, Julian Assange, Christopher Tietjens, Ford, Patrick Watts or Smaug?


Another week, and another fun quiz, courtesy of

This one is a very (not so) scientific one that can tell us without any doubt whatsoever which one of those people we are. Yes, really!

And I can reveal straight away that I'm very happy with my result. Oh yes!

I am none other than the greatest detective of all times, Sherlock Holmes himself (must be true as it's what this quiz said, isn't it?)

"You're Sherlock! There's no denying your intelligence and people secretly wish they were a bit more like you. You might boast a bit, but with a brain like yours, why wouldn't you?"
Exactly!  It's so me described to a "t" here, incredible, isn't it?

I can hear you asking where can you do that quiz and find out who you are as soon as possible... Well, it's conveniently  embedded below so that you can find out without any time being wasted. Handy, isn't it?

Have fun!

What Historical Era Do I Belong In?


"Have you ever felt that you could have had more fun if you've lived in a different era? Maybe have grand snow fights in the Ice Age or wear the dresses of the Victorian Era? it's time to find out where you really belong"
Oi! Who said "in the stone age"?

I'm actually very pleased with the results for that quiz... I love technology too much to be told that I belong in a time where there was no television or, even worse, no internet (the fact that I've managed to cope all these years before the internet was invented still amazes me).

So, yes, that was a good result... even so I kind of expected a historical era that I had already been in. But, hey, at least the one I've got has plenty of new technology to play with. Cool!

My Result

"Command: Greetings. Message: We are happy to meet you. here's an endless supply of money and a card for the new Alien Gym. You are going to love the future!"
Never mind the gym, bring my flying car and tell me where the holodeck is!

If you fancy having a go at this fun quiz, you can click on here to get to it, or, if you don't mind waiting a little bit, you can play straight from here (it should appear below in a few more seconds). But, wherever you do that quiz, let us know what your result is, okay? Thanks in advance.

Which New 'Doctor Who' Companion Am I? [Warning: I Might Have Had A Sex Change While Taking The Quiz!]


The full title should really have been "If I was not 'The Loupster' already (the Loupster is not one of the Doctors' companions and he's got companions himself), etc... etc... etc... which new 'Doctor' Who' companion would I be?", but... err... it would have been a tad too long, wouldn't it?

Anyway, this post is about the results I've got in the BuzzFeed's quiz "Which New 'Doctor Who' Companion Are You?". I'd already taken the "Which 'Doctor Who' Are You?" one, so I thought "why not take a quiz about the Doctor's companions as well?" After all, it was all in good fun and, let's face it, the chances of not being Captain Jack Harkness were rather tiny, weren't they? 

I mean, hey, I did make a point of answering all the questions in a manly manner, so what could go wrong?

Nothing much... except that, according to the quiz, I'm now one of the Doctor's female companions, d'oh!

Which 'Doctor Who' Are You?


It was time, really, for a more updated test, as the "What Doctor Who Character Are You?" one we've posted in 2009 was starting to be a bit redundant. Okay, I was pleased with the results at the time (I was the 4th Doctor after all!), but as the test was not including the 11th one, I was wondering how different the results would be if he had been included... and, thanks to the BBC America site, I now have the answer.

Christmas Trivia Questions Time: "Who Are You Mr. Claus?"

Sinterklaas AKA Santa Claus
Sinterklaas AKA Santa Claus
Just about everyone in the world knows that jolly toy-bearing Christmas figure from the North Pole, but how much do we really know about him?

Here are a few quick trivia questions about our beloved Santa brought to you by 
Lewis Payton.
Q: Where does the name Santa Claus come from?
A: The name Santa Claus was derived from Sinterklaas, the Dutch term for the ancient Christian figure of Saint Nicholas who was famous for his generosity to the poor (more about him later).

The Dutch immigrants to America imported their gift-giving saint to New Amsterdam where he merged with his British counterpart, Father Christmas, to become America's own Santa Claus.

Q: Everyone knows that Santa lives in the North Pole, but where is the real St. Nicholas from? 
A: St. Nicholas who many consider to be the inspiration for modern Santa Claus was born in Patara around 275AD. 

Patara is located in present day Turkey, on the Southern Mediterranean coast in what is today an international tourist resort area where visitors spend hours basking in the warm Mediterranean sun. 

Certainly not a place you would want to be wearing fur coats in.

Q: If you really wanted to find St. Nicholas today, where would you go looking?
A: You may enjoy a trip to the North Pole, but if you really want to honor St. Nicholas, you would do better by heading towards Italy, where the remains of St. Nicholas are stored in the basilica of St. Nicola in the city of Bari. 

They have been there since the 11 century when they were, uh… borrowed… from their previous resting place in Myra in present day Turkey. 

Q: Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer and his companions take Santa on his rounds completely airborne. How is it that reindeer can fly?
A: Many people believe that the tale of flying reindeers (as well as other parts of the Santa story), originates from Lapland in modern day Finland. Some say that in Lapland reindeer had a habit of seeking out the hallucinogenic amanita mushrooms which they ate and then would prance around while under their influence. 

As these mushrooms are quite toxic, it was regular practice for local shamans to drink the urine of tripping reindeer for a "safe high" and then "fly" together with them. 

This could also explain the general cheerful disposition (with the "ho ho ho" and all), and the flushed red cheeks of today's Santa. 

Q: Where did Santa get his unique outfit?
A: While it's no secret that the marketing people of Coca Cola have a lot to do with the modern image of Santa, some say the roots go way back. 

The same North European Shamans that liked to consume those red and white mushrooms with their reindeers used to wear quite a similar outfit when they went out to collect their pickings – red and white fur trimmed coats with long black boots. 

As implied above, it's quite certain that St. Nicholas was no inspiration for this outfit, as he lived in sunny south Turkey.

Q: Who was the first to create Santa's modern image?
A: Coca Cola still uses the iconic images of Santa which were hugely successful in the 30s, and created for it by the gifted artist Haddon Sundblom, an American of Swedish origin (does Northern Europe ring any bells here?). 

However the modern image of Santa was only finally standardized in his works, but had actually been developing for years before. Coca Cola wasn't even the first beverage company to make commercial use of every child's jolly toy bearing hero – a company called White Rock beverages used him to sell ginger ale and mineral water as early as 1915. 

However earlier versions wore a wide variety of colors. 

Coca Cola's Santa is the one the finally set the record straight, and since then Santa has been wearing nothing but Red and White.
