Anyone else a massive fan of Doctor Who?

Doctor Who is not only my favorite TV show, but one of my favorite things ever. I have adored it ever since I watched the Peter Cushing Dalek films. I adore both the classic and new series equally, and I think it is a shame that Matt Smith is leaving as the 11th Doctor. It for the best in the end though, I mean, for 50th years the show has been about change. Cant wait for the 50th special!

Also have to mention how much I love Torchwood, its adult-centered spin-off (And where I got my username from!) and The Sarah Jane Adventures, its more child-centered spin-off.

I really enjoy the show, though I suppose I was a late-comer. I started watching during the early Tennant years, and went back and watched Eccelston in between seasons. I've only seen a few episodes of the older incarnations, but I've enjoyed them. Though Tennant remains my favorite (you never forget your first doctor!), I've enjoyed Smith's run and hate to see him go. Can't wait to see what's in store for the 50th special though!

As someone who's never watched the show, hardcore doctor who fans to me are like... hardcore gilmore girls fans. Or Charmed fans. Or Angel fans. I say... you people and your shows... I don't get ya.

"Uly, why not watch a few episodes before you go judgin it?"

What, you want me to fire up the VPN and pirate episodes one by one or something? A whole season? That's a lot of work. It takes me two or three weeks to finally get around to watching attack on titan episodes. And I love attack on titan. I'm worn out afterwards. The high seas are a cruel mistress.

"Uly, why not watch it on netflix?"

I ain't made o' money. I work 15 hours a week for minimum wage and live with my mother who I secretly hate and fantasize about the girlfriend I'll never have. All of this is relevant to the conversation. Don't say it isn't. That's hating. NO H8. See, I'm hip. I'm down. I know what the cool kids are sayin.

Gilmore Girls tantalized you with the possibility of a sexy mother-daughter romance that never happened. That episode where she was lying on the bed with her legs up talking about how she gave birth to her in that position... hooo boy, was it getting hot. The episode we've all been waiting for. But still, nothing... I'm still upset about it.

Wouldn't say "massive fan", but it's a great show, sure.

Love the show. However, it seems to have lost a lot of quality lately. The storylines all seem to be solved be some form of wishing. EG: Memories (you know the one I'm talking about )

Personally, I prefer the older who. Tom Baker FTW

Big Doctor Who fan here. Matt Smith is my favorite, and it's going to be hard to let him go. But that is how the show goes.

I'm currently watching the old stuff on Netflix, and it's not nearly as horrible as I thought it would be. Some of the "special" effects are laughable. Definately worked better before there was good definition. Now it's hard not to chuckle at it.

Also, series 7 was a step back in terms of story. I think Moffat pushed the idea of a one hour movie, and his writers tried to fit that idea into the overall stories but failed. I mean, how can you go from having Amy and Rory being your favorite companions to glad they are gone in 4 episodes?
