THE Quiz of Rassilon has kickstarted its own celebrations to mark 50 years of Doctor Who by tailoring each month's quiz to correspond with a particular Doctor, writes Michael Williams.

Every first Monday of the month at Buffalo Bar in Cardiff, Whovians compete to win the coveted Trophy of Rassilon.

Competition is fierce - no team has ever managed to get full marks - but fortunately nobody has been exterminated... yet.

Teams from all walks of Doctor Who fandom turn up to test their knowledge; from long-term classic series fans to YouTubers, even some of the programme's production team.

The quiz has been fortunate to have the author of the Doctor Who Encyclopedia, Gary Russell, contributing questions as of late.

Needless to say, they are fiendishly difficult, but that is how the quiz participants like them.

As it is the programme's 50th anniversary year, there are some special guest question-setters lined up and, in true Doctor Who fashion, there may even be a returning villain.

The quiz recently celebrated its second birthday and just like the TV show it is based on, it appears to be going from strength to strength.

The winners of the First Doctor Special in January was Team Kinda.

The quiz is held at the Buffalo Bar, 11 Windsor Place, Cardiff, CF10 3BY www.buffalocardiff.com and takes place on the first Monday of the month, with doors at 7.30pm.

The Quiz will start at 8pm and it is £1 to enter.

Prizes include Forbidden Planet vouchers, bar tab giveaways and special one-off prizes.
