Everyone knows Peter Capaldi's a Time Lord, but did you know he's an artist, too? His Dalek doodle - drawn exclusively for Radio Times on a square metre of Perspex - was up for grabs for one reader who could answer four tricky Doctor Who questions, and guess the connection.

Four issues and many entries later, our winner is Carmen Hoang, 24, from south-east London (right), who works as an office runner at a TV production company.

My dream Doctor would probably be Richard Ayoade - he'd nail that baffled, larger-than-life thing. Or Olivia Colman, who would rock it - you could trust her, but you know she'd be silly, too."

And the connection between them?

All are named after bodies of water.
