A Peehs in Sheep's Clothing : Doctor Who Edition



After taking part in so many Sheep, Peehs and other variations, I thought it was about time I made one myself. And I’m not just using a basic format

For the most part, this is a game of Sheep, with all the standard rules attached, however there’s a twist

The four questions with the highest-scoring Sheeps will have their scores reversed, and essentially be scored like a game of Peehs

For example, if a round went as follows:

Answer A – Answered by 11 people
Answer B – 7 people
C – 4
D – 1

If 11 was one of the four highest-scoring Sheeps in the game, then the one person who answered D would actually get 11 points, the people who answered C would get 7, and so on

The person with the most points at the end of the game will be declared the winner

The topic is Doctor Who, however because this is - for the most part - a game of Sheep, Google IS allowed, and I have tried to pick questions that are easily Google-able for anyone who hasn’t seen the show

Please PM me your answers, and I will have the reveal in about two weeks


The questions:

1. Name an actor or actress to play The Doctor from 1963-2004
2. Name an actor or actress to play The Doctor from 2005-present
3. Name an actor or actress to play The Master

4. Name one of The Doctor’s companions from 1963-2004 (character name, not actor name)
5. Name one of The Doctor’s companions from 2005-present (character name, not actor name)

6. Name an episode or story in which the Daleks appear
7. Name an episode or story in which the Cybermen appear
8. Name an episode or story that was originally broadcast on Christmas Day
9. Name an episode or story in which a ‘regeneration’ takes place

10. Name a planet in the Doctor Who universe
11. Name an alien species in the Doctor Who universe (Daleks and Cybermen not included)
12. Name a Time Lord (The Doctor and The Master not included)
13. Name one of the six words for which ‘TARDIS’ is an acronym

I'm so in for this, love Doctor Who.

I need to think about my answers though, given how complicated and spicy that twist is!!!

So just to confirm, of the 13 questions, only 4 will have the twist, so really what your aiming for is regular SHEEP in 9 of the questions, and in the 4 you think will have the biggest SHEEP, you want the EPSHE (or 4th best answer), so PEEHS is never actually the goal...

Do I have that right?

The first part, yes, you are right

The second part, you want the Peehs, i.e. the answer that the fewest people will say. The sample I used had four options, but it isn't the fourth-best answer you want, it's the last one you want

Of course which questions for which that will apply, I have no idea

Ah right, gotcha! F**k this is gonna be hard. Tempted to just go with my personal favourites for each question, instead of trying to predict what other people will do and just hope for the best...

But how insane would a game of EPSHE be if that was a thing... Move over HEEPS, there's a new mindf**k in town...

That's pretty much going to be my strategy as well.

I have never seen an episode of Doctor Who in my life but since Google is allowed I'll give this a go anyway.

Hoping I manage to score higher than a big fan of the show who knew all the possible answers but chose the wrong ones!

If anyone could win a game of Sheep based on a show they've never seen, my money would be on you

My money would always be on him at this stage, regardless of prior knowledge...

Must remember to do this today. It slipped my mind last night.

Ten entries in so far, but there's still plenty of room for more. After all...
