A special video Blastermind for you this week. This was one round in the Blastermind quiz at the SFX Weekender . Can you name the films and TV shows these SF and fantasy trains come from (there are 11 different ones in all) plus can you name the person with a sci-fi connection who’s singing the song?

(Oh, and for those of you who think we reneged on our promise of a gratuitous “Shirtless Men” Blastermind to balance out our gratuitous “ Women In Black ” Blastermind, it’ll be on the site this Friday – blame the delay on the backlog of work after the Weekender)


In no particular order:

1 Sucker Punch
2 Doctor Who
3 Babylon 5
4 Batman Begins
5 Steamboy
6 Ghosts Of Mars
7 Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban (no points for incorrect Harry Potter film)
8 Priest
9 Polar Express
10 Back To The Future 3
11 Firefly
12 The sci-fi actor singing the song is John Pertwee
