My answer to a certain meme, brought to my attention in large letters by pennypaperbrain, and more subtly by pellegrina. I don't recognise myself in this one necessarily, but if true I may be forced to change my ways by an authority which I have preferred to ignore. On the same grounds, when Penny is very old she is going to be transformed into someone along the lines of myself or Pellegrina.

The Second Doctor
You are the Second Doctor: Affable, impish, and
fond of simple pleasures as well as simple
pranks. Your mischievous exterior camouflages a
powerful mind and a great deal of courage.
Although you care nothing for appearances, you
place a high value on the bonds of true and
lasting friendship.

I'd've had you as a cross between the Peter Davidson and Sylvestor McCoy doctors.

I don't know who Parrot Knight prefers, but he's often struck me (to look at) as a cross between Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker (no offence intended).

I tried answering the questionnaire again, but I am still revealed as the second Doctor. I concede that my appearance has some elements of the third and fourth Whos, however.

One of the Indian professors at work sounds quite a bit like one of the Dr. Whos (I don't know very much about Dr. Who, I think it's the Tom Baker one...anyway, the rather regal sounding voice) except with a little hint of an Indian accent.

It's extremely odd. My boss, Fearless Leader, has also commented on it.

It would appear according to the test that I am a Third Doctor! But I'll save space only posting the text.

You are the Third Doctor: Charming, commanding, physically competent
and more than a little bit vain.
You share the Second Doctor's amiability and the First Doctor's lack of
patience with small-minded idiots.
Your urge to take care of the entire universe often leads you to arrogance,
but you're dashing, self-sacrificing, and brilliant when a crisis erupts.

Which Doctor...

"You are the Seventh Doctor: Brooding, enigmatic, soulful, and occasionally silly. There are a great many mysteries lurking behind your ancient eyes, and even your closest companions aren't allowed to know the full extent of your schemes and concerns. You are often downright manipulative, using friends and adversaries alike as chess pieces in a private game against the universe. Your wrath is slow to build, but terrible when aroused, and you are slowly settling old scores with threats across the cosmos."

At least I'm not REG, who I suspect would be "Mannered, under-rehearsed, and sadly inconsequential. Nothing you say or do will be remembered in 2005. You can't sing very well either."

Incidentally one of the customers I had today paid by a cheque from a bank branch on the Cowley Road. It turned out that she once lived in Oxford Prison (not against her will, I hasten to add) and so was allowed unlimited access to the Castle Mound.

Re: Which Doctor...

From this description of the seventh Doctor, I'd say whoever wrote this quiz has definitely been reading the Virgin New Adventures. Still, better the Virgin interpretation than the way McCoy's Doctor often came across on screen.

As for REG, that sentiment is wholly endorsed on this perch.

That sounds just like Aidilo, if I may say so!

Re: Curious parrot

Oh, I see which comment this was a reply to, and will assume that Aidilo is something RP-ish.

Well naturally, he, I and I believe JP are Leos, only the best!
