The Bacon Numbers of Who



I was all set to go fetch all the Bacon Numbers for the Doctors when I found that someone had beaten me to it. So why re-invent the wheel. Here are the results from nwhye's LiveJournal

Considering that the highest Bacon Number for any Doctor is 3, no companion will be higher than a 4.

  1. "The Airzone Solution" while produced by the same people, wasn't a spinoff featuring the Classic Who companions. It was a completely different story in a completely different universe, which just happened to have the actors from DW. The Baggs were basically fans hiring the actors from DW to play new-yet-similiar roles.

    (It's a similiar universe with an Elenya Brown that looks like Perpugilliam Brown and a Liz Shaw that looks like Whoniverse Liz Shaw and some of the same aliens, and a bunch of people that look like the Third, Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Doctors, but not the same universe.)
