Fan of the Month

February 2009: Lee

Q. How did you become a fan of Doctor Who?
A. I first became a fan of Doctor Who by my dad. I didn't catch any of the trailers before it launched and to be quite honest I didn't know anything about it until I went downstairs and caught my dad watching 'Rose'. So I ran back upstairs and changed the channel to BBC One and saw plastic men attacking the streets of London. From then on I was ABSOLUTELY HOOKED! Me and my dad now watch every single episode together and we are both very strong fans.

Q. Are you looking forward to Planet of the Dead this Easter??
A. I am absolutely ecstatic about this year's special. Of course, since there are only four specials, the budget will be at its highest and they will be able to try out new and incredible things they might not have tried before, so I am extremely excited to see how it all pans out!

Q. What's your favourite new series episode and why?
A. Oh god, that's probably the trickiest question you could ask! Everyone always says something like 'Doomsday' or 'Journey's End', or a big epic finale like that. I would say 'Blink' because it just has everything you could ever want in a story but I really can't. I am going to say 'The Empty Child' and 'The Doctor Dances' for one simple reason. It is the only episode in Doctor Who history that I've seen that has honestly freaked me out really bad. I remember being 11 or 12 when watching it and at the end of 'The Empty Child' I was honestly terrified to see the next part. My dad didn't help putting on a gas mask at the end of part one, but secretly I LOVED the fear and adrenaline after the episode because that's what every episode should be and I am absolutely ecstatic that Steven Moffat, the writer of my 3 favourite episodes, is coming full time! Hooray!

Q. If you could travel anywhere in time or space, where would you go and why?
A. I would go back to New Years Eve (1999) because it is the biggest mistake of my life. I was around 5 or 6 but I slept through the ONLY New Year millenium I would ever see in my life and I am absolutely gutted I missed out.

Q. If you could meet any of the Doctor Who cast or crew, who would it be and why?
A. Catherine Tate. Simply because she is one of the funniest women on the planet and she is a fantastic actress and I just wanna meet her so bad! But David Tennant is unbelievably close behind her in my list.

Q. What would you do if you had your very own TARDIS?
A. If I had my own TARDIS I would pick up all my friends from the Whovian world and go on a giant outta space adventure with them!

Q. Anything else you'd like to add?
A. I cannot wait to see the 2009 specials and more importantly Matt Smith in action in 2010! Yippee!
