Game 26 Round 5 votes

Authors and answers for Doctor Who - The Reign of Terror are as follows - not only did nobody vote for Ian Marter's genuine line, but nobody voted for dorianegray's either, making the finish slightly closer than it looked like it was going to be as most people chose one of the ringers.

I must say I'm rather fond of our next destination," the Doctor said. - by dorianegray and surprisingly got no votes
It felt like the city was holding its breath. - by sammywol, no votes.
It was a planet shrouded in fog. - by plucky_lass, voted for by badgersandjam
It was late in the last July that France would see for many years. - by braisedbywolves
"My dear Chesterton, I know precisely what I'm doing and if you disbelieve me, look out of the doors and you will, without doubt, see Brighton Pavillion!" - captures William Hartnell's performance as the Doctor rather better than Ian Marter did; written by songofnewday, voted for by plucky_lass, dorianegray, a_d_medievalist and sammywol
The cart rolled slowly to the guillotine. - by a_d_medievalist, voted for by songofnewday
The twilit forest was hot and muggy. - by Ian Marter
"This doesn't look like Bali," the Doctor said in surprise. - by badgersandjam

So the final scores are:

dorianegray 13 + 0 = 13
songofnewday 5 + 5 = 10
sammywol 5 + 0 = 5
a_d_medievalist 1 + 1 = 2
plucky_lass 1 + 1 = 2
braisedbywolves 2 + 0 = 2
badgersandjam 0 + 0 = 0
jeffr23 0 + 0 = 0

Hearty congratulations to dorianegray for folling most of the people most of the time, and to sonfgofnewday for a strong challenge at the end. Thanks to everyone for taking part.
