The show will feature four pairs of Doctor Who stars competing against each other to win the Pointless Trophy.
The pairs are as follows:
- The seventh Doctor team of Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred.
- The companion team of Frazer Hines and Louise Jameson.
- The 'noble' team of Bernard Cribbins and Jacqueline King.
- The sixth Doctor team of Nicola Bryant and Andrew Hayden-Smith (standing in for Colin Baker who was taking part in I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here at the time of recording).
The episode was recorded at BBC Television Centre on 13th November 2012 and was hosted by usual presenters Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman.
