    In Regards To The Rumours In March 2013

    To all my fellow Whovians worldwide, as many of you know by now the second half of Series 7 had started and the week before it started rumours went around the internet regarding the current Doctor Matt Smith is leaving after the Christmas special this year. This was started by...

    Thoughts On Matt Smith's 1st Series?

    Just wondering what all everyone is thinking about DW now that Matt Smith's first year is essentially over. At the moment, I know the team is busy shooting the Christmas Special, which should make for some interesting watching at the end of the year. There were some great...

    How I Came To Be A Whovian

    It was my eighth grade year. I just started at a new school, so I knew absolutely no one. I was the kid who would sit at the "un-popular table" reading a book as I ate my salad. After about two months I started talking to this girl at the same table. She brought out her binder...

    Saying Goodbye To A Wondeful Companion....

    On APril 20, 2011 we lost another fine actress due to cancer. This saddens me when a great actress/actor(Jerry Orbach got me when he died in 1997) dies from having cancer. Anyone who watched DR. Who and fell in love with Sarah Jane Smith knows that this was such a hard loss...

    Dr Who

    I only started watching it when Christopher Eccleston played the ninth Doctor but I think David Tennant is much better. It does help that he's gorgeous in a geeky kind of a way I think!

    I laughed (yes, laughed) at Christopher

    Eccleston's episode plots, loved David Tennant's 10th Doctor, enjoyed Matt Smith's plot arcs, and now I can't wait for the premier of Series 8, the idea of a darker Doctor entices me for some reason.

    Doctor Who is brilliant! I've seen every episode of the revived series and can't wait for season 6. I've also seen some of the old series and hope to see more. I like all the Doctor's but David Tenant is my favorite thus far. There was just something really cool about how he...

    WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD! Do not read further unless you are current on the story so far. There has been so much speculation on who will be #12. One rumor is that they may even get a woman to play the role. This would be one of the biggest disasters in television history. Can you...

    I'm Obsessed With the New Dr Who

    I have fallen in love with this series even though the old one never really hit it off for me. I'm a total anglophile anyway but I also really love the wacky, off-the-wall quality of this show. And I absolutely love David Tennant! He makes chucks look stylish! :P ;)

    When I Say Run, Run!

    I became a fan of Dr Who because my mum is a fan. She's been watching since it began, or a little after it started. I was always interested in it, but didn't really get into it until the TV movie came out with Paul McGann. Then the ABC started showing the entire series from the...

    I am a very entertained by the show.

    The wittiness off it makes it so interesting. I find that David tennant is also very relatable. In the episode "girl in the fireplace" he is called a lonely angel. I like to think myself as such an angel. Thank you mr tennant, we miss you.

    Steven Moffat

    I really don't like Steven Moffat as a writer for Doctor Who. He really ruined the legacy that RTD created, sacrificing meaning and drama for making viewers afraid of things that are common in life (Wifi, statues, hotels, blinking, etc). Also, he reminds me of this paramedic my...

    I couldn't afford watching it from the 10th because that would have taken too much time. Now, the eighth series has started with Peter Capaldi. i don't like him very much. And it feels like if I'd waited for this series to start watching, I would have missed so much since it's...
