Bosses of Davina McCall's quiz show 'Million Pound Drop' have launched an investigation after fans say a couple lost out on a £325,000 prize, despite delivering the correct answer
Davina McCall's 'Million Pound Drop' quiz show is being investigated after a couple lost out on a £325,000 prize, despite giving the right answer.
Viewers have contacted producers of the Channel 4 show, claiming the contestants on Friday night's (05.11.10) show should have won the cash.
After being asked a question on who was the longest-serving 'Doctor Who' star out of a list of actors, the pair - who were given £1million to gamble on the programme's eight questions - couldn't decide.
They decided to split their remaining £650,000 between actors Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann, but Davina informed them the correct answer was David Tennant.
However, fans of the sci-fi BBC One series are adamant McCoy - who played the Timelord from 1987 to 1989, as well as in the 1996 film adaptation of the show - is the longest-serving Doctor.
Meanwhile, Tennant played the legendary TV character for four years from 2005 to 2009.
Antony Wainer of the 'Doctor Who Appreciation Society', told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "There are different ways to interpret it."
Channel 4 have confirmed producers are in the process of investigating the claims.
