CLASSIC DR WHO FIELD OF 64: LIGHTNING ROUND

OR IS IT ROUND 2?  But I wrongly called all the other posts "rounds", didn't I?  But if we don't call the last section "round" this or that, then what should I have called it?  Beats me.  Well, forget I mentioned that and we'll move along and call this ROUND 2!!!   In cases you forgotted, here is where we stand:


So let's barrel along with the next round of match-ups.  This time around it's the lightning round as we slash and burn our way through this plateau.  In the first level, we got a sense of what each story was so I won't really be synopsizing the plots on this go-round.  I'll be getting into more detail in the rounds to come.  Clicking on the bracket above may biggify it but not much.  But don't worry, along the way I'll provide close-up details of the brackets.  Now let's start with the first division match-ups:

OK, so first I posted this on the Jelly Baby post but I think I deleted it and it should only show up here now. But it probably won't. Anyway... Yes, this is the second round of the tournament and you can call them divisions, sections, or whatever. I prefer to call them the north, east, south, and west hy'news boddy (how was that spelled?)
