The series is hosted by Alexander Armstrong who stars as the voice of Mr Smith in The Sarah Jane Adventures and will also appear in the 2011 Christmas Special.

That was quite hard. There weren't enough actual monster sounding death cries. Most sounded pretty human. I only got the first two too.
I got Empress of the Racnoss and knew that the last one was series 5. xD
Ha… even I knew 3 of them… Empress Racnoss, and Malohkeh the Silurian were obvious because the music gives them away as being from NuWho and were fairly easy to work out and the Cyberman from Silver Nemesis would probably be obvious to anyone who enjoyed McCoy's tenure
I knew the Cyberman and Sontaran. Racnoss and Silurian were too human sounding to be fair. Clearly a quiz made FOR Whovians but not BY Whovians.
Ha! I got three of them. Empress Racnoss, Silurian and the Cyberman. Kind of easy if you ask me.
the audience laughter is really grating…
I got 3, Cyberman, Racnoss and the Quark. The Silurian just sounded human and the Sontaran I thought sounded a bit like Davros hissing… 🙁
I got Quark, Cyberman and Sontaran. It just goes to show that there's nothing unique about any new series death – you just have to recognise the music.
