Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In "Warriors of the Deep", Solow makes a very poor decision and attacks the Myrka how or with what?

Answer: Karate kick

This karate move was not in the script. The actress, who knew karate, put it in herself. When certain BBC executives wanted to cancel the show, the terrible-looking kick done against a particularly shoddy monster was one of clips shown to convince the BBC to axe the show.
2. What is the last line of "Warriors of the Deep"?

Answer: "There should have been another way."

The story ends with nearly everyone dead except for the Doctor, Tegan, and Turlough. They have to gas the Silurians and Sea Devils to death to stop them from triggering global war. This isn't what the Doctor wants, but he can't find a better solution that quickly.

This serial is the first of three stories this season where nearly every character dies, the other two being "Resurrection of the Daleks" and "The Caves of Androzani".
3. In "The Awakening", whom are the Doctor and friends going to Earth to visit?

Answer: Tegan's grandfather

Tegan wants to see her grandfather. The Doctor gets her to the right time and place, but trouble's afoot. They stumble into a re-enactment of the English Civil War, which a creature called the Malus is exploiting for its own purposes. The Doctor visits the Brigadier in "Mawdryn Undead".
4. The TARDIS is destroyed in "Frontios". What is the only piece left?

Answer: A hat stand

Early in the first part, the Doctor wants to move the console room's hat stand. (He'll find a room where there's another hat stand, put them side by side, and have a pair of them.) Turlough pretends it's a weapon in order to fend of the Frontios people. At the end, the Doctor leaves the hat stand for the people as a gift.
5. At the end of "Frontios", the Doctor tricks which character into reassembling the TARDIS?

Answer: The Gravis

The pieces have slowly come back to each other but haven't completely reformed the TARDIS yet. Because the Gravis has power over gravity, the Doctor tricks him into fixing the TARDIS for him by begging him not to push certain buttons. In the process, not only does the Gravis repair the TARDIS, his power over the other Tractators is broken, and the Gravis becomes harmless.
6. The Doctor gets quite violent with the Daleks in "Resurrection of the Daleks". Which of these is NOT a way that he dispatches them?

Answer: He fires a rocket launcher at them.

It appears that the Doctor has finally had enough of the Daleks after 21 seasons--he blows them up with bombs, kills them with a virus emitted by smoke canisters, and chucks one out a window. Though uncomfortable with holding a handgun, he shoots at a Dalek found outside its casing. He even holds a gun on Davros, but doesn't shoot him.

"Resurrection of the Daleks" was supposed to air in four parts but was recut into two double-length episodes when coverage of the 1984 Olympics interfered with the broadcast schedule.
7. Why does Tegan stop traveling with the Doctor?

Answer: She's tired of the violence and death.

She says that her aunt told her to give up something if she stops enjoying it. After seeing so much death in this story, she looks ready to cry, and tells the Doctor "It stopped being fun" before running off. After this, the Doctor says, "It seems I must mend my ways." One several occasions, the Doctor tells Tegan, "Brave heart." She tells herself this after seeing the TARDIS dematerialize.
8. What is the name of Turlough's home planet?

Answer: Trion

"Planet of Fire" finally reveals the name of Turlough's home planet, as well as his first name, Vislor. He has been a political exile for some time, but at the end of the story he's allowed to return home.
9. What has the Master come to Sarn to do in "Planet of Fire"?

Answer: Use the flames to restore himself

The Master has finally shrunken himself with his Tissue Compression Eliminator, which he has always used to kill others. When the flames on Sarn turn blue, they have healing properties. The Master grows back to regular size at the end, but the flames turn from healing to normal before the process is complete, and the Doctor just stands and watches while the Master appears to burn to death.

The Doctor is in a rather subdued mood throughout "Planet of Fire", possibly owing to the events of the previous story, where he kills multiple Daleks, is mentally tortured by Stien, tries to kill Davros, and sees Tegan run away from him.
10. In "The Caves of Androzani", what odd thing does Morgus do at a few points?

Answer: Addresses the camera

According to director Graeme Harper on the DVD, Morgus was not supposed to address the camera, but the actor misunderstood a direction and looked right down the lens when giving a line. Since Harper had no time to reshoot the scene, he decided to film the rest of Morgus's aside comments this way.

He thought that the asides added to the Shakespearean/Jacobian tragedy nature of the story.
11. What's the Doctor's motivation in "The Caves of Androzani"?

Answer: Saving Peri and himself from dying

Unusually for a "Doctor Who" story, he doesn't try to stop the civil war, drug trading, gunrunning, or oppressive government; he just wants to get Peri and himself out this horrible situation alive. Usually when the Doctor doesn't help out the situation at hand, it's because it's an historical event he doesn't want to alter. Here, everybody is suspicious of him and Peri and are too caught up in their "pathetic little local war" to consider who the Doctor actually is and what he's doing there (he just wants some sand for glassblowing). So, the Doctor concentrates on finding the spectrox antidote and getting Peri to safety, though he has to deal with a lot of unpleasant characters first.

However, he also manages to stop the spectrox trade, topple Morgus, and end the civil war, not by any planning or personal intent, but simply by being present on a planet he shouldn't be. He ends the fighting and double-dealing by accident.
12. What happens to the Doctor's celery in "The Caves of Androzani"?

Answer: He makes Peri sniff it to revive her.

He says that where he comes from, celery is a restorative, but thinks that it doesn't work as well on humans because of their poor olfactory senses. On the other hand, we can see from "Castrovalva" and "Enlightenment" that the celery he wears isn't real, but a mental construct, so possibly Peri doesn't get the full effect because it isn't real celery, and certainly not Gallifreyan celery.

The celery is meant to be an antidote to Praxis gases, which the Doctor is allergic to. The celery supposedly turns purple when the gases are around, and when that happens, the Doctor eats it. Too bad the Doctor isn't allergic to spectrox, or this would have been a very short story.
13. In what story do we hear the line, "We're running out of places to run"?

Answer: The Awakening

After so many years of running in "Doctor Who", we finally get this line. Tegan's response to Turlough's remark is "That's the story of our lives." There is an amazing amount of running on the show--Davison remarks in more than one DVD commentary that he could teach a class in corridor acting and running. This Doctor's choice to wear plimsolls is very sensible.
14. Who directed four Davison stories, including his first, "Castrovalva"?

Answer: Fiona Cumming

Cumming directed "Castrovalva", "Snakedance", "Enlightenment", and "Planet of Fire". According to DVD extras, she wasn't good at working with monsters (Daleks, Silurians, Cybermen, etc.), so she was given stories without monsters. Her only conventional monster appears briefly at the end of "Snakedance" and is a blue screen effect.
15. Before the Doctor regenerates in "The Caves of Androzani", several people appear to him as visions. Who is the last person to appear?

Answer: The Master

After spilling half the antidote to the spectrox, the Doctor gives the rest to Peri and collapses. He has visions of Tegan, Nyssa, Turlough, Kamelion, and Adric. They tell him he must live, as he's still needed in the universe to fight evil. Finally, the Master appears and tells the Doctor to die before laughing at him.

This seems to trigger his regeneration, and the next Doctor appears.
