Chapter 1

What began as an ordinary day for a Canadian named Victoria Regina turned into a quest to save the very soul of the country. Victoria was at a Maple Leafs game when she realized something odd was happening. The Leafs were winning. Hockey players were debating instead of fighting and no one knew what poutine was.  All the Canadian things had changed. That's when a mysterious man appeared on a Zamboni and announced he'd traveled through time.

Chapter 2

This is Chapter 2 of our five-part serial, Doctor the Guess Who. In Chapter 1, Victoria Regina was at a Maple Leafs game, when she noticed all the Canadian things were changing – no one knew what poutine was and the players were debating instead of fighting. Doctor the Guess Who arrived in his Time Zamboni and invited her on a quest through time to save Canada.

We had lots of great suggestions! Thanks to Kathy Clee for suggesting that our hockey players are arguing about butter tarts. Here's Chapter 2:

Last episode, they restored hockey fighting. Now they're trying to figure out what happened to Toronto's Yonge Street, and who's been stealing all the Canadiana.

Can you help the Doctor and Victoria? We're looking for your suggestions for places in Canada where it's easy to get lost in a crowd. Leave your suggestion here. Then go to cbc.ca/irrelevantshow next week to see Chapter 4 of Doctor the Guess Who – it'll be a comic strip, and it'll incorporate an audience suggestion. The exciting finale of Doctor the Guess Who will be on the radio show on June 24.

Chapter 4

Victoria and Doctor the Guess Who have already saved hockey fighting, poutine and Yonge Street – now they're searching for the mysterious man in plaid who's been stealing all the Canadian things.

Thanks to Hal Leadlay for suggesting that the man in plaid is trying to disappear in a crowd by going to an Ottawa Redblacks game, and Chris Curtis who suggested a parade. We combined those suggestions in Chapter 4.
