For those of you that have not had their chance to get their hands on a copy of Doctor Who Magazine as yet, the BBC has announced a special Doctor Who episode of BBC One quiz show Pointless will air on March 23rd at 6pm, just one week before Series 7b arrives on our screens!
Pointless sees contestants tested on their obscure knowledge, with the answer that is least well-known (and correct) being the most desirable.
Appearing in the special edition of Pointless will be classic Doctor Who actors and actresses including Sylvester McCoy (the Seventh Doctor), Sophie Aldred (Ace), Nicola Bryant (Peri), Louise Jameson (Leela) and Frazer Hines (Jamie).
From the new series, specifically the David Tennant years, there will be Bernard Cribbins (Wilfred Mott), Jacqueline King (Sylvia Noble) and Andrew Hayden-Smith (Jake Simmons). You’ll all recognise the show’s host Alexander Armstrong from his turn in Doctor Who’s 2011 Christmas special The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe. He also played the computer Mr Smith for five series of The Sarah Jane Adventures.
“From the first (I think) ChicagoTARDIS con, although it had a different name.”
Back row: Ian Marter, Tom Baker, John Nathan Turner, Patrick Troughton (and beard), Peter Davison, Jon Pertwee and two people whom I cannot identify, but who are probably members of the crew. Front row: Janet Fielding, Elisabeth Sladen, Carole Ann Ford, Mark Strickson, Sarah Sutton, Louise Jameson, Mary Tamm and Nicola Bryant.

Doesn’t Ian look jolly? hehe. This picture is pretty epic though, considering everyone who is in it.
