    S1E9 - Billie Piper's Rags

    Time Lady Kezia Newson and Doctor Who's digital marketing manager Luke Spillane face down Pencil Bandit in our season finale. But which fierce fan will truly triumph? Who. Nose. For the final episode of our first series, this trio of trivia nuts must delineate horror from Who, decipher 8-bit tunes, and demonstrate their due diligence of dissecting different daring Doctors in a 50th anniversary quiz. If you have any suggestions, corrections or comments to send down the time vortex, you can tweet the show, @oldestquestion. Hosted by Thomas Wingfield. Theme '8 Bit Adventure!' by HeatleyBros. 8-Bit companion themes by Doctor Who Adventures. Artwork by Pencil Bandit.

    S1E8 - Rory's Last Words

    Nerd couple James Anderson and Catherine Mulvaney take on animator and illustrator Pencil Bandit. But who can fill in the blankety-blanks, and can snow really cackle? It's the penultimate punch-up of Gallifreyan geekery, in which Doctor Who meets wrestling's mightiest moves, character quotes crave completion, and the Ponds' pitiable parting is plundered for some Series 7 sticklers. If you have any suggestions, corrections or comments to send down the time vortex, you can tweet the show, @oldestquestion. Hosted by Thomas Wingfield. Theme '8 Bit Adventure!' by HeatleyBros. Artwork by Pencil Bandit.

    S1E7 - Cupboard of Fear

    Greek-Australian newbie Anna Moran and her David Tennant lookalike husband Tom battle the Bandit. But who can guess the Whovian auction prices, and just what is a rattan ball? In our seventh slam-down, competitors must distinguish genuine sports from Doctor Who references, guess the going rate of memorabilia, and discover how much of Series 6 has stayed stuck in their synapses. If you have any suggestions, corrections or comments to send down the time vortex, you can tweet the show, @oldestquestion. Hosted by Thomas Wingfield. Theme '8 Bit Adventure!' by HeatleyBros. Artwork by Pencil Bandit.

    S1E6 - Dumb-Ass Whale

    Actor Mike Cole (or is it Cole Michaels?) and Mrs Bandit herself, Sophie North, tackle our titan of TARDIS trivia. But who knows their erotic novels, and is Sylvester McCoy filthy? It's time for our sixth dive into Doctor Who, with contestants identifying self-published erotica titles, trying to outsmart public opinion polls, and finally posed a plethora of potent Pandorica puzzlers in the Series 5 quiz-off. If you have any suggestions, corrections or comments to send down the time vortex, you can tweet the show, @oldestquestion. Hosted by Thomas Wingfield. Theme '8 Bit Adventure!' by HeatleyBros. Artwork by Pencil Bandit.

    S1E5 - 500 Bernards

    Director Anoushka Bonwick and actor Rhys Lawton fend off our in-house Gallifreyan geek. But who knows their Scandinavian heavy metal bands, and is Catherine Tate rubbish? This fifth volume vexes our volunteers with heavy metal band names, has them identifying Doctor Who villains from their childlike descriptions, and truly tests how much of Tennant's final farewell is fixed in their thoughts. If you have any suggestions, corrections or comments to send down the time vortex, you can tweet the show, @oldestquestion. Hosted by Thomas Wingfield. Theme '8 Bit Adventure!' by HeatleyBros. Artwork by Pencil Bandit.

    S1E4 - Giant Alien Space Wasp

    S1E4 - Giant Alien Space Wasp

    Elliot Hughes, Steph Reynolds and 'house robot' Pencil Bandit lock tentacles once more. But who can identify the theme tune, and what does Agatha Christie have to do with wasps? For our fourth foray into Gallifrey, the panellists turn back time to pick the Doctor's words apart from Cher's tweets, nail down the era of each Doctor Who theme, and dwell upon Donna's daring deeds in a Series 4 quiz. If you have any suggestions, corrections or comments to send down the time vortex, you can tweet the show, @oldestquestion. Hosted by Thomas Wingfield. Theme '8 Bit Adventure!' by HeatleyBros. Artwork by Pencil Bandit.
