I created this for you so that you can learn about Doctor Who and/or InDoctrinate your friends!
Yes, its OST has conquer me, and I find fascinating the fandom… And I like David Tennant.
And probably I’ll end as a whovian
Am I going to cry? To suffer?
Your wisdom is appreciated, guys.
Doctor Who celebrates it’s fiftieth year in 2013. Last week saw the forty-ninth anniversary of it’s first episode, a mere twenty five minutes in which the Doctor was played by William Hartnell, age fifty-five. I have been watching avidly since Sylvester McCoy’s incarnation, and have dabbled in other seasons over the years.
There is something about Peter Davison’s Doctor, maybe it’s the attire, that I have a soft spot for, and I will forever love Colin Baker, the man who was only recently replaced by Matt Smith as my dad’s favorite Doctor. Having visited the old Doctor Who museum in Llangollen many times, I also have a fondness for Jon Pertwee. You cannot help it after actually getting to see Bessie in person.
For those of you who are Eccleston converts to the show, here are a few interesting tidbits from across fifty years that I hope will accentuate the enjoyment of the recent years….

She is sending me livetexts.
I am afraid of the monster I have unleashed.
And I was watching Doctor Who! I’ve NEVER even watched a single episode, and I DREAMED I WAS WATCHING IT. Who has dreams of fandoms that they AREN’T EVEN A PART OF?!?!
Your fandom is leaking my dear Whovians.
DOCTOR WHO WHO IS SO GOOD!!!!!
I am so amazed by its awesomeness!!!
Christopher Eccleston is just so amazing!!!! He’s hilarious and HE LOVES ROSE TYLER SO MUCH!!!!

I don’t know what I’m going to do!!! I love him so much!!! But I’m so excited about David Tennant!!!
BUT I DON’T WANT CHRISTOPHER TO LEAVE!!!!!
Welcome to the fandom, you person of excellent taste.
Today is a good day. One of my closest friends got addicted to doctor who immediately. He has almost watched the entire first season in a single day!!! YAY!!!
My 5-year-old sister who rarely sits through a full episode of any television show, including Doctor Who, just managed to sit through the final two episodes of Spearhead from Space without much said aside from a few questions and was totally absorbed in it. I’m shocked because my 9-year-old sister who loves New Who didn’t do much other than snark about the special effects and lose interest half-way through. Ella (5) hasn’t stopped raving about it since and seems to love Three (or what we see of him in it), she can’t get over the fact it came out the year mum was born. I think it’s safe to say she has a favourite era. I don’t blame her - the plot is far more simplistic than current episodes, and far easier for someone of her age to understand (not knocking any era, I love both).
Also, if you’ve seen my recent reblogs, you know who my new favorite companion is. After Donna, of course. Always after Donna.
I JUST HAVE LOTS OF FEELS ABOUT WHY I FEEL THEY DID TONIGHT’S EPISODE.

Our oldest daughter (age 4) watched her first episode of Doctor Who tonight. After seeing the commercial for something with dinosaurs AND a spaceship she was adamant about getting to stay up to see it.
She absolutely loved it, though now that she has gone to bed I’m going to have to watch it again because I am quite sure I missed more than a few lines of dialogue answering her questions.
At the end, when they are all looking out the TARDIS doors she started crying. After all the dinosaurs, and robots, and missiles, and aliens, and such, we couldn’t figure out why it was then that she started bawling. Finally she calmed down to tell us why.
She said it was because the Doctor looked so sad.

I figured today is a very fitting one for me to post my newtoWHO story. Today is a madly exciting and wonderful day for this Whovian. Why? Because this is the very first time I get to watch a new Doctor Who episode on the day it airs.
Before I got to high school I had absolutely no idea that this brilliant show existed. The first memory I have of someone talking about Doctor Who was my grade 10 year but I didn’t realize it until I had gotten into the show! I just remember my friend Emma being distraught because some new actor was going to replace someone on her favourite show, which at the time sounded completely mad. Near the beginning of grade 12 all my friends that love the show, and people on a Harry Potter facebook group I lurked on, had me convinced. I should try it even though I’ve never been a sci-fi fan, and I knew nearly nothing about the show
I bought a laptop after Christmas and decided that it was time I borrowed my friends dvds of the 1 series of the new series…
Off I went…. From the moment The Doctor grabbed Roses hand and said “Run.” I think I was hooked. By “Run for your life” I completely loved both Rose and The Doctor. Doctor Who wasn’t at all what I expected, it was clever, exciting, witty, it was wonderful (cheesy effects and all). I emerged from the show forty odd minutes later and was almost surprised to find myself still sitting at school, wishing I could run into the TARDIS to travel with The Doctor. I rushed to play the next episode and didn’t stop.
Great #newtoWHO story. Click through for the rest.
