Kasterborous Birthday Competition

It’s not often we get the opportunity to run a competition, and following the amazing response to our Dalek poster giveaway – and to celebrate our 2nd birthday – we have a set of prizes that you won’t find anywhere else…

Our two unique prizes come with a price, however – three questions that while testing are not too hard; and while not too hard are not too easy neither. Everyone has the chance to enter this competition, but before we go any further an dset the questions, let’s take a look at the prizes…

1st Prize – One signed photo of Seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy, also featuring the autographs of Eighth Doctor Paul McGann and Dr Grace Holloway actress Daphne Ashbrook. As if this wasn’t enough, there are also two postcards of the winner’s choice of Anthony Dry’s artwork from his website www.gravisart.com. That’s three extremely rare items!

2nd Prize – the lucky runner up will still get the chance to collect a special prize, themselves also able to choose two postcard-sized reproductions of Anthony Dry’s images from the www.gravisart.com website.

So without further ado, on with the questions – and I should add that the questions are all answerable, and the answers themselves can be found within Kasterborous.com…

Question 1 – on what date did the new Doctor Who series come to BBC One after a 16 year wait?

Question 2 – An obituary to which guest actor appeared on Kasterborous in April 2005 and was subsequently linked who from Wikipedia?

Question 3 – Finally multiple choice… How did Christian Cawley and Anthony Dry first get together to set up Kasterborous.com?

a) They met at a Billie Piper concert

b) They made friends after a bar room brawl

c) They got chatting on the Outpost Gallifrey forum.

Stick your answers in an email to photocompetition@kasterborous.com. The closing date is February 6th 2007

Christian Cawley


A long-term Doctor Who fan, Christian grew up watching the show and has early memories of the Graham Williams era. His favourite stories are Inferno, The Seeds of Doom and Human Nature (although The Empty Child, Blink and Utopia all come close). When he’s not bossing around the news team, Christian is a freelance writer specialising in mobile technology and domestic computing, and enjoys classic rock, cooking and spending time in the countryside with his wife and young children. You can find him on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.
