I'm probably not a "Whovian".

First time I watched Dr Who was probably circa 1977 and Tom Baker was Dr Who. I was five then and used to sit on my Daddy because it was scary. I carried on watching until Peter Davidson. Didn't pick it up again until about Peter Eccleston.

I mostly watch it now through homesickness and nostalgia. When did you start watching?

I started with Tom Baker. Love the characters they all are. Love the humour. Love the monsters. Love the fact it takes place in Britain. I must ask you about the pictures. I am a crocheter and I would love to make these if you have the pattern or know where I can get it.

Christopher Eccleston was my first doctor, but I have a special place in my heart for 10. Yesterday my daughter drew me a picture of a TARDIS that said, "I two hearts you."

I love my kids. Their names are Rose and Rory.

Just kidding about the names.

Shadow, do you want to keep this Dr. Who thread separate from the Geek thread, or should we ask dianah to combine them?

I have no preference. I'm sure it would get more exposure in the Geek thread as one fan is usually a member of more than one fandom. :)

My daughter's wedding was Doctor Who themed. She did draw a line, and wouldn't let the best man cosplay Eleven, though. :-)

Life got in the way and I stopped watching when Matt Smith took over, and now I feel the need to go back and catch up before watching Peter Capaldi. I get overwhelmed with how much time that is going to take, and I don't even start.

I grew up watching Classic Who on PBS, and then the BBC when I was in the UK. Nine is my favorite, though the grumpiness of One was quite enjoyable.

Sigh....

My daughters were like Mom- you need to watch Doctor Who. I resisted, just like I did with Sherlock. Then I got sucked in, and watched from Eccleston on. My favorite is Ten. My favorite companion is Donna. Now when I try to talk about Doctor Who with my kids, they roll their eyes at me because that was so 4 years ago (for them). Although the middle child and I make it a point to watch the new episodes. I dig Capaldi and his sonic sunglasses. I think it's past time for Clara to move on. And apparently Moffat agrees.

I think you would be able to pick it up with Capaldi without viewing the others. I seem to be able to pick it up at any point in time. I loved the last 2 episodes. His companion is leaving the show so it looks like a new companion is on the horizon in the last 2 episodes. Just love it. So entertaining and humorous.

Yes Clara is leaving. It looks like the Viking girl will be the new companion. Have you heard anything to that effect? I rather like her and she is companion-like in her demeanour.
