Greetings, Whovians from across the globe and perhaps even the entire galaxy!

Today we have a special treat for all you time travellers and space adventurers out there (and those who just dream of it): a quiz designed to test your knowledge of one of the longest-running and most beloved science fiction series in television history, the BBC’s blockbusting Doctor Who. Spanning six decades, the series has enthralled countless fans with its engaging storylines, intriguing characters, and, of course, its brilliant companions since 1963 – but how well do you know them?

The Doctor, a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey, is never without a companion, each one leaving a huge mark on the series and the hearts of its viewers. From the original companion Susan Foreman, the Doctor’s granddaughter, to Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, Amy Pond, Donna Noble, and many more, each companion has shared unique adventures with the Doctor and faced countless perils in space and time.

This quiz will transport you on a journey across the cosmos and through time, exploring the first appearances of some of the Doctor’s most memorable companions. Each question will present you with the name of a companion and four episodes. Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to match the companion with the episode in which they first appeared. It sounds simple, but its actually more difficult than you might think!

So, ready your sonic screwdrivers, hold on tight to your TARDIS, and prepare to travel the space-time continuum. Without further ado, it’s time to put your Doctor Who knowledge to the test!
