Fandom Friday; Doctor Who Q&A

For the first official Fandom Friday, I couldn’t resist making it Doctor Who related. I’m going to just just right in!

Fandom Friday Doctor Who QA

How long have you been a Whovian?

I’ve been a Whovian for about six years. I know I was a little late getting into it, ooooh, but once I did, the fandom was so much bigger on the inside! I can’t believe it! I absolutely love it and I have to thank my amazing friend Taylor for introducing this amazing lifestyle to me.

– Epicfied (Me!)

I’ve been a Whovian for about 10 years.

– Kat (one of my best friends)

Since Christopher Eccleston’s first episode.

– Charlie (Happy Little Geek)

Since 2013

– Mandy (The True Ultimate Fangirl Officially AND Downtown Geekbound)

Since 2012. A friend introduced me to it one day and from the first episode I watched, I was hooked!

– Josh (Show Us Your Pokeballs AND Against the Odds

Classic Who or New Who?

I’m slightly embarrassed to say this, but New Who. I’ve watched some of classic who but not enough to get me to love it more than New Who… I started with New Who, so there’s some sort of loyalty there, but really. Doctor Who is Doctor Who… and I love it through and through.

– Epicfied (Me!)

I love the New Who, but I will always be a Classic Who fan.

– Kat (one of my best friends)

I’m New Who. I have watched lots of Classic episodes but New Who is my favourite.

– Charlie (Happy Little Geek)

New Who!!!! <3 <3

– Mandy (The True Ultimate Fangirl Officially AND Downtown Geekbound)

I’m a New Who person. I’ve gone back and watched several of the Classic Who episodes I especially loved “The Three Doctors Episode”

– Josh (Show Us Your Pokeballs AND Against the Odds

Who was your first Doctor?

Since I started on New Who, my first Doctor was Nine.

Dont skip nine

Don’t skip Nine!

– Epicfied (Me!)

My first doctor was the first doctor, day care started me right.

– Kat (one of my best friends)

9 was my first.

– Charlie (Happy Little Geek)

The Ninth

– Mandy (The True Ultimate Fangirl Officially AND Downtown Geekbound)

Eccleston, and still a close 2nd favorite Doctor.

– Josh (Show Us Your Pokeballs AND Against the Odds)

Who is your Doctor?

Though Nine was my first Doctor, Tennant is my Doctor. If Nine was on air longer, he probably would’ve been my Doctor. However, Ten has some amazing stories that goes on with his travels. I think it was just a great start for me to be in Doctor Who overall. Smith was great but he wasn’t my Doctor. Took me a while to grow fond of him.

– Epicfied (Me!)

My Doctor is either Baker or Smith. Baker was so fun to watch on TV and just amazing and then along came this Tigger or Matt who will always be my favourite New Who.

– Kat (one of my best friends)

Peter Capaldi I just adore what he has brought to the role. A bit darker and grumpier but still at total mad genius! I love when he thinks he is complimenting Clara and he’s actually being quite rude! Makes me chuckle. And his love for Doctor Who and enjoyment of seeing fans is just awesome.

– Charlie (Happy Little Geek)

Eleven <3 <3 <3 <3

– Mandy (The True Ultimate Fangirl Officially AND Downtown Geekbound)

Tennant is my Doctor of choice! In my opinion he’s got the best stories and the best final episode.

– Josh (Show Us Your Pokeballs AND Against the Odds)

Who is your favorite companion?

I don’t care if you don’t count them as one but The Ponds are my favorite companions. Their stories and spoilers are just amazing. They were definitely the most in depth story line wise and were definitely a reason I also came to love the 11th Doctor.

– Epicfied (Me!)

Favourite companion is always the Ponds, I just fell in love with Amy and Rory and they took away my heart. I’d never been so upset in my life when angels take Manhattan happened.

– Kat (one of my best friends)

Clara. I love her. I like how she didn’t think twice about calling the Doctor out if she thought he was wrong. I also like how she struggled with the regeneration. I thought it showed her flaws but made them understand each other more.

– Charlie (Happy Little Geek)

Even though she isn’t REALLY a “companion”…River Song…or Rory

– Mandy (The True Ultimate Fangirl Officially AND Downtown Geekbound)

Martha Jones, she walked the whole world ffs! She’s highly underrated because everyone missed Rose and didn’t like that she was in love with The Doctor. But she’s one of the few companions to ever continue the fight after she left The Doctor and help save the world a handful more times all her own. Plus she married Mickey, and gets a happy ending! I have a lot of feelings and opinions about Martha Jones …

– Josh (Show Us Your Pokeballs AND Against the Odds)

What’s your favorite monster?

I forgot …

Amy Pond Silence.jpg

– Epicfied (Me!)

Favourite monster would have to be the silence because silence will fall.

– Kat (one of my best friends)

Weeping Angels. They are the creepiest things in all of time and space.

– Charlie (Happy Little Geek)

The Weeping Angels scared the shit out of me <3

– Mandy (The True Ultimate Fangirl Officially AND Downtown Geekbound)

Abzorbaloff… just kidding! My favorite alien race are the Tivoli, from the most invaded planet in the galaxy! The “If you occupied us, you’d be home by now” slogan made me laugh near to tears! My favorite “monsters” though are The Silence!

– Josh (Show Us Your Pokeballs AND Against the Odds)

Are you excited for Series 10?

What Whovian isn’t? It’s sad to see that it will be so far away though! It’s going to be a sad season due to Moffat leaving and Capaldi, but I’m super excited for all the new changes and a new companion and I just can’t wait to see what happens. Can we have more River???

– Epicfied (Me!)

I am excited for the 10th season but it makes me wonder if this means it’ll be ending soon.

– Kat (one of my best friends)

Soooo excited I think they are very mean making us wait extra long for it!!! I’m keen to see who replaces my Clara and how that effects the dynamics in the TARDIS!!

– Charlie (Happy Little Geek)

I’m so far behind, I really need to catch up!

– Mandy (The True Ultimate Fangirl Officially AND Downtown Geekbound)

YES! I can’t wait to see the changes that are in store. I hope more info leaks sooner than later about the next companion and there’s more definitive news if this will indeed be Capaldi’s last season.

– Josh (Show Us Your Pokeballs AND Against the Odds)

How about for this being Moffat’s last season?

Yes and no. He’s broke so many happy moments (HA!) but so much heartbreak. As much as I hate him sometimes, it will be a bittersweet ending. I will miss him and there’s big shows to fill for the new guy… but I hope it will be a good change (please don’t take away all the heartbreak).

– Epicfied (Me!)

As much as I love to hate Moffat I’ll miss him. He’s made me cry angry and happy at the same time.

– Kat (one of my best friends)

I’m excited. I think he had a good run over all I was not a fan of some of his storyline choices but you can’t please all the people all the time. I’m excited for Chris Chibnall to take over and see what new direction he takes the show in.

– Charlie (Happy Little Geek)

I haven’t really seen the flaws in Moffat’s being on DW, but then again, I haven’t reached the point where everyone says it starts to go bad, so I’ll just have to see it once I get there and make my decision then. I DO love Sherlock though, so I can’t say I feel Moffat is ALL bad. 😉

– Mandy (The True Ultimate Fangirl Officially AND Downtown Geekbound)

Yes, I think he’s told some amazing stories and definitely some of the most memorable moments have been from him but I think it’s a good time to bring in someone with new points of view and new ideas.

– Josh (Show Us Your Pokeballs AND Against the Odds)

Anything else to add?

I love Doctor Who. It has definitely been an important part of my life. I don’t hate any doctor or companion, I just love some more than others. Some characters, like Martha, really shine in the spinoffs more than the actual show, like Torchwood!

Thank you.jpg

Thank you all so much for participating and I can’t wait to see the weeks to come.

– Epicfied (Me!)

Doctor who has forever changed my life an I’m proud of that.

– Kat (one of my best friends)

I hope this helps and I haven’t gone on too much. (Charlie, you were great, thank you!)

– Charlie (Happy Little Geek)

ELEVEN AND RIVER SONG FOREVER!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

– Mandy (The True Ultimate Fangirl Officially AND Downtown Geekbound)

Sonic sunglasses was the worst thing in the history of ever and I’m still bitter that Eccleston refused to be in Day of the Doctor with Hurt, Tennant, and Smith. It would have been even more amazing.

– Josh (Show Us Your Pokeballs AND Against the Odds)

I’m bitter too, Josh … I’m bitter too ………...
