About This Quiz

The television show "Doctor Who" has been around since 1963, but it disappeared from the airwaves for many years between the eighth and ninth Doctors. The version of the show best known to most modern viewers is the incarnation of the show that began its run in 2005, with arguably better writing, acting, and special effects. Every story on "Doctor Who" manages to be unique in the "Doctor Who" continuity, and yet ties itself into the overall fabric of the world of the show so each episode fits seamlessly with the others like perfectly carved jigsaw pieces.

One of the reasons the show resonates so strongly with audiences is that we see ourselves in both The Doctor and his (or her) companions, and we feel as though the stories on "Doctor Who" are analogs for our lives. The best science fiction is metaphor, and much of the show is either a metaphor for something in the wider world or at its core it is about the dynamic of a relationship. On "Doctor Who", the constant relationships are those between The Doctor and The Doctor's companions, and the fleeting relationships are with the guest characters who arrive in individual episodes. Like a chemical reaction, these relationships combine to create unique dynamics that draw us in. Do you feel like your life could be an episode of "Doctor Who"? We do. Take this quiz, and we'll tell you which "Doctor Who" episode set in Britain is your life!
