To the person having differences of opinion about the new Doctor with their friends: I'm in the exact same situation and it's no fun. But remember what Capaldi said when he was announced: Doctor Who belongs to everyone. It isn't fun to disagree with friends. But I told myself that if the new Doctor can be understanding of and welcoming to every type of fan, I should try to be, too. I hope your friends decide to give it a try, but if not, I hope they'll be understanding of you in return. ♥♥
My friends are annoying me because they're all saying "I'm not watching Doctor Who anymore because there's that old dude as the doctor, he's weird, not fit, not funny and ughh, he'll be terrible" and whenever I defend Peter Capaldi or ask why they aren't giving him a chance they either avoid the question or just say I'm stupid. Where can I find a Dalek and politely ask for my friends to be exterminated? Thanks
We’re sorry to hear you’re feeling in a tough spot with your friends.
We hope that no one feels upset by anybody who feels differently about Doctor Who. We think that generally, it’s okay to be critical about things as long as you do so without trying to make others feel bad.
What we’re saying is that it’s okay for you and your friends to feel differently about Doctor Who, or anything for that matter. We simply hope that you are kind and considerate to each other.
The great thing about Doctor Who fans is that all of us are people invested in supporting each other and getting excited about the things we like.
We hope that all Whovians who follow the Doctor Who Tumblr are welcoming to anyone who wishes to be included in the Doctor Who community. If you want to be a Whovian, congratulations. We’re so glad you’re here.
P.S. Did we mention how excited we are for the next season?
In terms of good DW related sights in London, The Who Shop is great. It isn't in central London but it's within the Tube network. Also there's a little bit of stuff in the science museum (which is a cool day out anyway)
Hey there, i really hope you can help me with my question: I am from Germany, but in May we are planning a trip to London for one week. What are the most important Doctor Who related sights I have to see there as Whovian?
Oh what a great question and who (wink) better to answer than other Doctor Who fans?
Whovians - what are your favourite Doctor Who spots in and around London?
Hey, I know that this will probably get lost in the flurry of asks you get, but you just posted a blurb about someone who is taking an AP Bio course and mentioned the neurotransmitter that is released by Adipose tissue to decrease hunger. It is in fact called "Leptin", not "Lectin".
In AP Biology today, we were discussing the hormone lectin. Lectin sends a signal to the brain telling it to stop eating 'cause you're full. Lectin is made by... ADIPOSE TISSUE- who knew that you guys exist in our bodies and help keep our bodies good and right :)
