The Post Quiz: Name-Dropper's Time Travel

Charles Gray as Julius Caesar in 1979.

Don't you hate name-droppers? The people who pepper their anecdotes with claims of their brush with stardom? Who quote all the famous people they've met?

Don't you wish you could top their stories? Now, you can. Just use your tardis – the one you borrowed from the Gallifreyan garage – to travel back in time and visit famous people. Before you go, take this quiz: it will help you set your coordinates for optimum coolness.

Match the Famous Person, the date, and the place where you should go. (Space/time, remember?)
