Doctor Who Quiz

Do you remember the classic episodes of Doctor Who? If so, why not test your knowledge of the BBC sci-fi series in our Saturday nostalgia quiz?

The popular programme has strong connections with the Manchester area. Salford actor Christopher Eccleston played the Doctor – so too did Colin Baker, who grew up in Rochdale.

And Oldham’s own Bernard Cribbins enjoys the rare distinction of appearing in both the TV and film versions of Doctor Who.

Many of the questions in our nostalgia quizzes come from Clive Hardy’s Around Manchester books on the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Each features more than 300 unmissable pictures from the M.E.N. archive.

They’re on sale now for £14.99 including postage and packing. Just go to inostalgia.co.uk or ring 01928 503777 to place your order.

We hope the quiz brings back some happy memories during the lockdown. If you’d like to share them, please write to the M.E.N. or inostalgia.co.uk. We’d love to hear from you.
