Brilliant but slightly odd but very nice

Now we have a new Doctor Who.

For those who weren't around when the original series was in production, the usual procedure is this:

1. New season starts playing on TV. Everyone immediately says it is crap, and it was better in the old days when it had Ken Dodd and the big jellybean man on it. Lone fan says "It wasn't that bad!" and is immediately set upon with blunt objects.

2. Second new season starts playing on TV. Everyone immediately says it is crap and the previous season was much better, especially the bit with that bloke off Eastenders. Lone fan stays quiet because the swelling still hasn't gone down.

3. Third season starts playing. Everyone immediately says it's crap, etc. Lone fan converts to Trek, only to discover this means he has to watch Enterprise.

Repeat ad nauseum.

Just so you know.

So I was saved the beatings but unfortunately was not saved the agony of watching ST *smiles*

You're welcome to nab it if you want. Captured that face and knew it had to be an icon.

Yeah, but twenty years later Lone Fan is validated because everyone realises that it was Really Really Good and Post-Modern.

Yup! 'Course by then Lone Fan has completely given up and become a monk.

Oi. I converted from Trek. 'Cos I was the lone fan who said 'The emperor has no clothes. This really sucks.'

Never being part of the true Dr Who fandom i never experienced this kind of thinking until #DrWhoChat and radw......after radw it's a wonder i stayed a fan of the show.

I'm not sure why some people are even in RADW, since they don't seem to actually like the show. :)

I'm still hyper this morning, still listening to the Orbital version of the theme, still chortling over my fics' cliff-hangers, still internally gloating over how relatively Fringe this fandom is...

....HELP MEEEEEEEEEEEE...I'M DEEP IN SAD FAN MODE....

Bex is on a two day Who-high. I still love that icon, too.

Although I guess it sums up Eight's reaction to the news pretty well, too...
