      • Doctor Who
        Vince's ultimate test in this episode is the ability to chronologically list all the actor playing the Doctor in cult series Doctor Who. Stuart of course suceeds (listing the first seven Doctors: William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy) and also says that Paul McGann (8th Doctor) doesn't count. Some fans doesn't want to count McGann's Doctor since he only starred in the movie (which had several inconsistencies compared to the tv series). Queer as Folk was made before creator Russel T Davies moved on to renewing Doctor Who, and the list therefore does not include the last two Doctors (Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant).

        However, both Stuart and Vince refer to the character as "Doctor Who", which is a common mistake. Doctor Who is just the name of the show, the main character himself is always referred to as The Doctor.
