Pop Culture Docs

I just came across the following posted to Slashdot, and thought this makes a fun little pop-culture quiz. Thanks to mr_mischief, whoever he/she may be!

I plan on trying to identify which tv show/movie/book each of the doctors is from, though I doubt I'll know more than a third. If you think of others that aren't on the list, add them to the comments field, and I may update the list.

I suppose I can also link to an 'answer key' once I have all of the answers.

May this mindless challenge divert you, at least momentarily, from dreary worldly concerns. GO!

I just tried this challenge myself. My initial results were 25 that I did know, 35 that I did not know, and 5 that I thought I knew, but was unsure. Of those 5, I was wrong on 4, and the other 1 was a multi-doctor entry that I knew the 'world' of, but named the wrong specific origins of each doctor. I haven't yet bothered to actually verify my accuracy on the picks I think are right.
